Based on probability and 'expected gain', I believe your best chance is to be born into a wealthy family.

Tell me how that works out for you.

An old joke (all the best ones are)

The easiest way to get a million dollars from investing in stocks is to give your broker ten million dollars.

Live on half of what you make. Invest the other half. Invest in several things. For example, if you invested recently in the US Housing market, you are in deep trouble as that market's bubble burst.

Short term, its impossible to know where to put your money. (If you could know, you wouldn't be posting here). So its better long term to put parts of your money is several areas, so you can tend to get the average return.

Beating the averages is nearly impossible.

The quickest have already been mentioned, though I suppose you could try gambling as well.

The surest way to wealth is spending less than you earn.
Yes yes, that's way too obvious to work, but most of us want to be wealthy yet few want to spend even 10% less than earnings.
