Creating Wealth

Most people think that creating wealth is all about money. Although money is a significant component of wealth, it is not the reason to become wealthy. This is simply because…

  • Money is not the reason you do something…
  • Rather, money is the result of how you have been doing things.

The result of your financial situation is based upon some key factors:

  1. How you think.
  2. How you behave.
  3. How you communicate.
  4. How well you understand yourself.
  5. How well you are able to relate to others.
  6. How well you are able to manage your time.
  7. How well you manage the money which you already have.

When you understand – and then improve these things – you will start to create wealth.

Even if you just improve one of those things, you will start the process to create wealth. This is simply because you are improving the simple things which actually matter.

It is important to note that – as with anything worth doing – this process to create wealth takes time. You don’t become fit overnight, and you don’t become fat overnight. It takes time. To create financial freedom, and then wealth, is simply a process of doing the right things in the right way – repeated over time.

It is NOT quick, but it is easy, and you have already started – just by coming here.

This site will explain the simple things that actually matter to create your own wealth.

I look forward to the day that you will contact me and say – “Christo – you have changed my life! Thank you!”

I genuinely look forward to your success!

Best Regards,
Christo van Zyl


Wealth is NOT money...


Time, Health, People AND Money. You need all 4 to become wealthy.


You don't become wealthy because you WANT money.


Because you DO specific things in a specific way. Wealth is a RESULT, NOT A REASON.

      Hi Obasi. Thank you for your question. You mentioned quite a few things with just a little bit of information, so I will have to take a stab at it… It takes time, effort and dedication to build your own business, and it usually takes a few years. In essence, you have to find a specific problem to solve. Businesses solve problems. They provide a product or a service to help with solving a specific problem. Eg: People don’t buy a drill because they want a drill. They buy a drill because they need to make a hole. The hole is their problem, and the drill solves it. You have to find a problem that you WANT to solve, and then spend as much time, effort and money as you can to create a solution for that problem. I may write an article to give you and others more information to solve such a problem in more detail. Thanks again for the comment, this should at least get you starting to think in a specific direction. Let me know how it goes please. Best regards, Christo

    Hey Christo,

    I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this post, thanks to my search for ways to create wealth.

    I was gonna write an article about “wealth creation” and I was ready to make research before I start scribbling anything down when I saw this and I’m sure it will help me during the process of writing.

    Thanks for sharing this, I still believe there’s more to learn from your great website. I’d stay in touch.

      Hi Sam, thank you for your comment. I am happy about two things:

      1) That you were researching “wealth creation.” That is a great first step!
      2) That you left a comment and are willing to learn!

      Excellent man! Proud of you! Keep up the research. Study many resources. Find what is common between them. Choose what you believe to be true, and test that knowledge until you are satisfied it is the best version of the truth that you currently have access to!

      I am in the process of creating an online course where you will be able to learn what took me about 10 years of research to discover! I know it will save you time and give you a super head-start!

      Please do keep me posted on your progress! Best regards, Christo

    I love what i do and i am good bt my salary dont reflect it. I am the lowste paid accountant in my company bt i work smart and better then all of the other accountant.i

    • Christo van Zyl October 4, 2012 at 11:44 pm - Reply

      Hi Beno. Remember you get paid for the VALUE that you ADD. Also, people pay you for the VALUE that they perceive that you add. The goal with most companies is to PAY as little as possible to employees and GET as much as possible in terms of service in return… However, that is up to THEM. The best way to increase your salary is to ensure you ADD as much VALUE to the company as you can over a long period of time. You must ask yourself: Am I able to COMMUNICATE clearly? (Your comment above does not show this YET as there are errors in the spelling, the pronunciation and sentence structure – people see this and then they make an estimate of your VALUE) Are you able to effectively LEAD the other accountants? Are you able to DEMONSTRATE that you are either saving them a LOT of TIME or a LOT of MONEY, or, MAKING them a LOT of MONEY? (This can take weeks, months or even years) You must be an incredible ASSET to the company, be efficient, effective, well spoken, well presented leader and a few other things before they would even consider a salary increase… My recommendation would be to ensure that you can comply to the above first, then start thinking increase.

    Nice read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that. And he actually bought me lunch because I found it for him… smile.* Thus let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

      Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s not super helpful.

      • Christo van Zyl January 16, 2012 at 10:52 am - Reply

        Hi Sherlyn. Exactly. I discovered that the things that can impact one’s ability to create wealth are actually super simple and easy to impliment. One just has to do them and take action – which is a secret to wealth. Thanks for your comment.
