For those of us who aren’t born with a silver spoon, we often wonder how to become rich and quickly. We go through inspiring stories of millionaires and billionaires, look for lucrative investment options and even take up side business to achieve a billionaire tag.

And, becoming rich in India is different when compared to other countries. In a country like India, becoming a filthy rich person can take a lot of time due to red tapism, corruption, family backing, etc.

But, this doesn’t mean you will kill your dreams and lead a mediocre life. In order to succeed and make things work in your favour, you have to march forward and work hard.

There is no substitute to hard work. Once you zero upon an idea, you should not look back as there is nothing bigger than regret in life.
