It’s easily done. You needed a job because we all do, in order to live. Then you get into working for a living and it takes up such a huge amount of your time and energies that there’s none left over to spend thinking about what you could be doing differently, extra or smarter in order to make more money. How many of us are guilty of letting our financial affairs slide because quite frankly we feel there are better things to do with our precious free time than get to grips with our finances or plan a long overdue life/career change?

Sometimes we’re so busy doing our jobs; we forget the end goal - making some real money. Well, to become wealthy, you absolutely have to remember to lift your head above the parapet of your 9 to 5 (or 8 to 8 or whatever hours you work) and give yourself a chance to think about the bigger picture - and take action. 

“If you are unhappy with your pay and/or hate your job then you have to question why you’re still doing it and what else you could do. The worst possible scenario is that you don’t feel fulfilled or rewarded in your job but you are so busy doing it that you don’t have time to create a plan that will bring you greater prosperity and happiness”.

Lots and lots of people work to live - and without them the rich couldn’t get richer. And this doesn’t mean the workers are being exploited or used. Just that if people choose to be drudges and invest all their time and energy in working for wages, then there will always be other people who will be quick to see an opportunity and become prosperous, simply because they had their heads up and could see further.
If you do work for a living and you don’t confidently expect that job to make you rich; then you must be doing it for love, mustn’t you? No, this isn’t a trick question. It is about prioritizing our ambitions. If we go to work solely for money it makes sense to earn as much as we can, as we want.
If you love what you do then if the money doesn’t come with it, you need to create a strategy for wealth creation that doesn’t rely on the ‘day job’ income. It’s great that you love what you do, but if you also want wealth you need to make sure you aren’t so busy doing it that you forget to work out how you’re going to get wealthy doing it, or what other actions or strategies you need to create a second income or alternative revenue generator.
If you are unhappy with your pay and/or hate your job then you have to question why you’re still doing it and what else you could do. The worst possible scenario is that you don’t feel fulfilled or rewarded in your job but you are so busy doing it that you don’t have time to create a plan that will bring you greater prosperity and happiness. While you’ve got your head down earning a living a million and one opportunities to become prosperous have just passed over your head and you didn’t see them. Imagine waking up in ten years’ time and realizing that’s what you’d done. If this is your situation then do something now. Change your perspective and seize the day.
