Become a millionaire!

Now wait a minute!

Probably most of us would end up in a situation like the above pic.

Pfft, you say. How do I not know what to do with money?

Well, I can safely claim, we're not even sure what to do with ourselves after 17 years of "education"? You tell me. Why would you be doing what you're doing now? Still figuring out a way to meet month's end, just enough to cover your basics?

Now, wishing you had a million dollars would sound really great, but I just can't help but pause to think for while that
"Why aren't we miilionaires?" Because we're not born one? Because we don't deserve it?

Of course. Not.

Millionaires these days are not born rich, most are high school drop outs, had odd jobs like chicken catcher or construction workers.

But again,
"Why aren't we millionaires?"

Just a couple of posts back, I wrote something about goal setting and this post, I would just like to put my message across, by really repeating the question, "Why aren't we millionaires?"

It has a good ring to it.
*Insert name here* The Millionaire.
Sales reps at LV or Prada know you that well to know what's your favorite drink.
You get out from your Lamborghini roadster while everyone at the clubhouse turn and look.

The fantasies can go on and on and on...
And you do realize it's not going to happen if you keep doing what you're doing- a 9 to 5 job- being just over broke.

You might have a high paying job enough to get you a new BMW 5 series, but when you think back, do you really exchange your time with the salary you get?

Do you miss those times when in college you get to shop during the weekdays? And you just simply wish, with the money you have now, you would be able to do that?

And George (Amazing) Carlin said this:
Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.


and our problem is?

We don't change. We are comfortable. It's a different story all together when you wrap yourself in your blanket on a winter night. We think to ourselves, "Nah, I'll be better off like ths; you know the economy is pretty tough; I'm lucky to have a job".

and if you're frustrated over your job now - who wouldn't be, like seriously?

Good. I congratulate you.

Thomas Edison said,
Discontent is the first necessity of progress.

Because you will come to a point- when enough IS enough. and frustration leads to action.

Only during tough times, you'll learn; to be a leader, to act inspite of fear. And when you succeed, the satisfaction is ten fold.


So, first step to goal setting.

Rule of Thumb #1

Set to be something great; because of
what it will make of you to achieve it.

Not because you
want 1 million dollars.

Because you will become a millionaire first-
mentally and then when you get your 1 million dollars, I'm positively sure you will know what to do with it.


Money buys food and care for people in the world, yet it funds nuclear and war.

Subconsciously, most people think that money=evil. There are evil ways to acquire money, but money itself is not evil.

Back to the rule of thumb that is
to become in order to make it a reality.

If you're an unhappy little person; and there's a sudden windfall, do you think you will stop being unhappy? Big chances, not. You will continue to be a miserable scrooge that will have nightmare thinking someone is going to rob you of your riches.

If you're a drunkard, you will drink more when you have more money.

"Becareful of what you wish for?".


There this one time I remember a certain conversation took place between two friends, one is a multi millionaire and the friend asked him, "Do you feel insecure when you're rich?".

"No, I worked hard to what I have today, and if I've arrived here today, and done bad things in the past, I'd probably would. But if my riches were taken away from me, I know how to earn them again."

He has become to what he is today; and that is the true definition of being a millionaire.

Have you wondered why some people can have a few million dollars in the bank account but yet they have no lifestyle?

Lifestyle does not start only when you're rich.

Lifestyle start when you're living life with style.

By becoming refined and living the qualities of such, you can have lifestyle.
