7 Essentials to Becoming a Millionaire
1. Find a Mentor
Following in the footsteps of someone who has gone before you makes your journey easier. Be teachable, take notes, ask questions and then do what they advise.
2. You don’t need to be perfect
You don’t need to be perfect every time. You don’t need to wait until all the lights are green. You just need to get started and to accept that you are going to make mistakes and have failures. It’s how you react that matters. Study hard, learn from your mistakes and be totally dedicated.
3. Small gains add up
You are not going to make a million dollars overnight. If you shoot to make more next month than this month, even if it’s by only $1,000 more, you are on your way.
4. Look for alternative strategies
Doing everything the same as everyone else keeps you in the pack instead of being the lead dog. Think outside the box.
5. You can’t hurry success
Success will not come overnight or in a few weeks or even months. It’s not a race so don’t focus on how fast you think it should happen. Focus on learning, honing your skills and increasing your knowledge. This will give you a strong foundation for the future.
6. You have to work harder than everyone else
Hard work is the key. Many people want what others have and this leads to a negative attitude and the cause of excuses. Who cares they had family money, went to a better school. Get out from under the circumstances and the excuses and start working.
7. Have the right motivations
Don’t just have the goals of being rich and/or famous. These are just superficial goals and won’t sustain you. Challenge yourself to be the best you can be and that the rewards are just a scoreboard.
Summary: these tips will help you make a million from scratch, but they are nothing without hard work and dedication.
Put it all together and you could be seeing your million dollars much faster than you ever dreamed.
