Do you dream about becoming a Millionaire? I bet you have a specific vision of the lifestyle you will lead when/if you become one. I had a dream. I had a vision. This is how it all started….
I saw pictures of Sir Richard Branson laying in a hammock, wearing shorts and a t-shirt with his laptop on his lap, joyously “working” while away on his own private island! OMG! I want what he has (I said to myself). You know that old saying “Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it.” Well, I did get it! Here I sit, wearing shorts and a t-shirt, writing to you while looking at the ocean right in front of me. Just a short jog down to the private beach….OK, so I don’t own an island. I’m working on it. LOL. But, really, in this blog I’m going to tell you the unvarnished Truth about the joys, sorrows, struggles, freedom, benefits and drawbacks of being a self-made millionaire. That way, you can judge for yourself, if you are really ready, willing and able to take it on!
Should you decide to accept this mission of becoming a millionaire, I will also provide you my best tips, strategies and secrets to use to speed your way to success. I can confess to you right here and right now — it isn’t for the faint of heart!
Millionaire’s have a specific set of concrete character traits. Traits that persist over time. It’s what makes them into a millionaire and then enables them to keep and grow their wealth.
Here are the Top Fourteen Traits:
1. HAS A UNWAVERING BIG PICTURE DREAM
2. SELF MOTIVATED
3. UNRELENTING NEED TO KEEP CREATING AND ATTAINING NEW GOALS
4. ABILITY TO PERSEVERE NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
5. AN INHERENT NEED TO BE OF SERVICE TO OTHERS
6. A MIND THAT NEVER STOPS STRATEGIZING NEXT ACTION STEPS
7. GENEROUS AND WANTS OTHERS TO SUCCEED
8. DOESN’T KNOW THE MEANING OF QUIT
9. INVESTS THEIR MONEY
10. DOESN’T OVERSPEND OR OVER EXTEND
11. AREN’T AFRAID TO TRY NEW THINGS (only after diligent investigation).
12. CONTINUOUS LEARNERS
13. HONEST AND FAIR
14. ALWAYS PUTS THEIR VALUES BEFORE PROFIT
How many of the above traits do you have ? The only difference between millionaires and non-millionaires is action. It’s the difference between just merely dreaming the dream or executing on the dream. Go out and execute on your dream. You will be amazed before you are half-way through what you can achieve.
I close with a true confession of a self-made millionaire: It’s scary to write this blog. I’m “coming out” as a self-made millionaire. I’ve kept in the closet because I’ve had some not so good experiences with bullies who want to take advantage (more on that later). But, now it’s imperative to my mission to help others to attain their dream — to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
I hope you come back often!
Together, we can make the world a much greater success!
