There’s a buzzword going around and if not used properly it can be like a shot in the foot. REALISTIC. There’s a fine line between being “realistic” and being self-defeating. Look, I know some of you are “hard sells” when it comes to talking about becoming a millionaire with a 3 to 5 year strategy plan. I get that. I also get that it’s much easier to say it’s not “realistic”. That’s a scapegoat. With that kind of “realistic” thinking, you’ll never discover your cash cow.
The truth is, our nation has the largest population of Millionaires. Of those the majority earned their millions through creating wealth of their own, i.e. business owners. About 80% of millionaires are first generation, which means they worked hard and smart for their money. Two-thirds of the millionaires are self-employed, with 75 percent of them entrepreneurs. That’s HUGE!
So why shouldn’t you be one of those people. What’s holding you back?
For many it’s because their mindset tells them that it’s “just not realistic” and they never start something that could be very real.
Here’s what’s real…
Millionaires have a plan.
Weather or not you decide to follow my wealth strategies you need a plan. It’s your road map to money. Be specific and learn to adapt and recognize opportunity. Most millionaires are entrepreneurs who stayed the course.
If you want to be a millionaire, you’re going to have to work. It’s true. You’ve got to get serious, be consistent, and put in the time. The majority of millionaires are business owners and work about 45 hours or more per week.
Millionaires don’t spend what they don’t have. .
Millionaires shop smart. They look for deals. The smart ones live at a comfortable middle class spending plan. Fact: 43% of millionaires have a Sears card. On that same note, most only carry one major credit card and pay it off at the end of each month. If they want something they devise a plan to get it.
Millionaires make sure every dollar goes to support continued wealth. (Period)
Simply put, you need a cash machine, a business that will sustain a continuous flow of income.
Millionaires are in a cycle of continuous learning.
In fact, most millionaires have a mentor or copied a successful business and or personal strategy model. You’ve got to keep up with the times. The phrase nothing new under the sun no longer applies in this information age. Keep your mind sharp for new opportunities.
I know the prospect of becoming a millionaire in 3 to 5 years to you may seem far-fetched, my personal experience with the nearly 600 people tells me differently. It might be time for you took look at how your “realistic” mindset is holding you back. Are you being realistic or are you being pessimistic?
You might not be the one who makes their millions in 3 to 5 years but what if you’re one of the ones that is poised to do so in 10 years because of the steps you’ve taken today? Wouldn’t it still be worth it even if you achieve it a few years later?
