How to become a millionaire overnight
So you clicked on this article hoping to see what’s in store for you on how to become a millionaire overnight. Well I hate to break the real hard truth to all you “wanna be get rich quick schemers”. This is close to impossible. Yes, persons can and have become a millionaire overnight but those occasions are pretty rare. For example winning the lottery is probably the easiest way to become a millionaire pretty quickly. But what you should keep in mind is that those occasions are rare.
What always puzzled me though is why there is always this wide group of persons out there. Who are always looking for another get rich scheme to become a millionaire quickly. And deep down they know that it’s probably either a scam or a very small number of persons are going to get rich. For example every year when a new scheme comes out, there are always a handful of persons who just flock to it and later finds out it was never worth it.
My very short story
Come on guys it’s 2016!!!!!! We should all know by now that there is no easy way to get rich or else. Jack down the road and Mary working at Wal-Mart packing shelves would’ve been rich already. That’s just the real truth. Couple year’s back I used to believe that you could really get rich quick. One of the books that motivated me was “The richest man in Babylon”. That’s a great book by the way and I have read it over couple times to understand it better. But at first I was fired up to become rich.
So I laid out my business to start my business and I lost a lot of money over the course of a couple weeks. I was devastated and felt like a real failure. Over time as I began to read more books, watch videos and invest in myself. I began to understand that it’s going to take a lot of work. That’s one of the reasons why I think persons normally fall into these get rich quick schemes. They want to shortcut their way into success and feel like a winner. Well that’s not how it works.
Put in the work
You have to put in the work and build a foundation from the ground up. It’s like any endeavor in life, you have to put in the work to reach your destination. Becoming a millionaire is probably most of us dream, who believe in capitalism which is a great portion of society. There are a lot of ways you can become a millionaire and one of the ways in which we all know is to become an entrepreneur. Start and grow your own business.
I believe that we are living in one of the greatest times in human history in terms of gaining wealth. Opportunity is abundant and because of the internet it has become easier to start a business. Although it have become easier, that also comes at a disadvantage because the markets have gotten a lot more competitive. You have to constantly innovate in your business in order to succeed.
The main point still remains though, which is that we are living in one of the most abundant times in history to start a business. So why aren’t more people millionaires? It’s simply because they don’t have what it takes. You don’t get what you want in life, you get what you deserve. So at the end of the day, if you are whining that you’ve tried everything and still not successful. You need to suck up the tears, throw away the complaining mindset.
Look at what you’ve been doing wrong and what you can improve on, next create a plan and get to work. It’s not going to happen in one or two years though, well it depends on the business you’re in and the market. But normally becoming a millionaire is going to take you quite some time. Becoming a millionaire in 5 – 10 years is very doable and a lot of persons have done it. But it’s going to take a lot of resilience, sleepless nights, rejections, broken deals etc.
When you watch the news or some of those reality television shows and see those rich and successful persons. Sometimes they make it look as if becoming successful is easy and they’ve achieved their wealth overnight. But don’t let that mislead you. It’s quite normal for successful persons to think that way, because sometimes when you’re successful. You kind of forgot about all those hard work you’ve done to reach where you are.
The most important thing you should keep in mind is that you got to change your mindset. I have seen persons who have made a lot of money over the years and lost it all. Sometimes what happen is that, they never had the mindset to maintain being wealthy over a period of time. On the other hand, there have been persons who have been wealthy, lost it and made it over again. Now those guys or gals are the real deal.
I don’t want to bore you anymore so I am deciding to wrap this up. Probably I will write a part two for this because there is so much I want to say. Remember that everything starts from your mind, it’s important to change your mindset and invest in the right tools to do so. I have read hundreds of books over the years and I have learnt a lot from each one I have read.
I am encouraging you to do that as well. Invest in yourself and take action. Taking action as it relates to going out there and grind it out on a daily basis to reach your goals is really important. It’s even more important than reading books because you are going to get hands on experience on what it really takes to be successful.
