“Before you can become a millionaire, you must learn to think like one. You must learn how to motivate yourself to counter fear with courage. Making critical decisions about your career, business, investments and other resources conjures up fear, fear that is part of the process of becoming a financial success.”
Thomas J. Stanley
Let’s admit the fact that we all want to be rich. We love to emulate those rich and famous people that we seen on T.V. Ordinary guy like us often ask ourselves if it is a freak of nature, or is it on their genes and others will assume if it is pure luck that they achieved that status.
Fortunately there still some hope. We are in modern world, it’s easy to amass money now (legal…and yes illegal ways too), than during those industrial era where you need a huge amount of capital and hard work to build your business empire.
Compare to this modern era, we can see a lot of opportunities all around us. All we have to do is to focus our energy to our desired ambition. Again, the big question is… how to be a millionaire for us guys and gals out there?
Following ways in any order if you want to level-up with those big guys:
1. Winning a lottery
– The chance of winning is one in a million. It’s highly possible that you will hit by lightning twice or hit by train than winning this game of chance.
Unfortunately lot of people still does gamble on lotto ticket despite less chance of winning. There still waiting for this so-called “luck”.
I myself do accept to bet on lottery. Seldom have I passed lotto outlet to buy one to two tickets. A little addiction that I cannot explain but fortunately I can control it.
2. Illegal Drug Trade
-It is an unlawful activity but lot of people would dive into. It’s as if no matter how hard they avoid on it but still drawn with drugs. A very lucrative business, easy to earn bucks for few days and if you’re certified “drug lord”, a million dollar a month is just a cents.
There is always negative side of this sinister activity. If you happen by chance apprehended by authority (I’m sure you will), do expect to receive stiff penalty such as life sentence and most serious punishment of all- there’s death penalty.
I vehemently opposed to everyone not to follow this method because it affect our moral values. Well as of current statistics, millions of people all over the world are still hook into it.
3. Be a famous Showbiz Stars or Athlete
To all who have hidden talents out there, show it to the world and give them the best that you’ve got. It would be so promising if you work and train on your gift consistently at early years so you will become an expert in your craft when time comes.
If you are really determined, then you are not far from becoming the future Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods or how about the next Taylor Swift and or Lady Gaga…it’s up to you.
FYI… if you happen to become a famous artist that you want to be, expect that your talent fee or salary would be millions of dollars from just a single game, concert or T.V episode…not bad huh.
4. Acquire Inheritance
You are one of the luckiest guys if you inherit tremendous assets from your family or distant relatives. Mostly this lucky recipient comes from traditional elite family whose forefathers work hard to build their own business empire and became what they are now.
Not all receivers from this inheritance belong to affluent group or have Royal blood lines. Even an ordinary guy could inherit this wealth. It all depends on the Last Will and Testament of dying person.
5. Climb the Corporate Ladder
It takes a considerable amount of persistence and drudgery to achieve this feat. Most of these hardworking ones start at bottom, working on some menial task such as janitor or messenger. They give love on their work, soon the boss notices them and as a result they promoted one step higher. Laziness has no room in corporate world.
This individual who has strong desire and ambition to reach the top of pyramid must face rigid competition on other rivals, he or she must adapt a different attitude of his peer groups and accustomed him further on their horrible bosses.
These are what it takes to become a President of the company or perhaps an Executive.
6. Become a Computer Whiz
This method I believe is one of the easiest ways to accumulate more money in just a click of button. Our modern world rely so much on computer utilizing in doing banking, commerce, investment and other transaction that you could imagine.
Every second, millions or billions of dollars are wire transferred toward its destination from every corner of continent.
So how do we grab this huge slice of opportunity? — Easy to say but it takes discipline to achieve it. You can build your own website or make unique Apps or programs intended to make daily life of people more convenient. Big names like Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Bill Gates of Microsoft Word succeed on their own niche.
Think hard, be smart, try something new, invent, innovate and tweak some existing technology. Remember… no pain no gain.
7. Build Business Empire
People like President Donald Trump the owner Trump Hotel, Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken, Mr. Henry Sy, a Filipino Chinese Tycoon, the owner of biggest mall in Asia and to name a few.
What do these people have in common? They all have an ambition and hunger for success. Each of them starts from scratch. Their success on business does not made overnight. It takes years after years of toiling and doing boring task that most of us don’t like to experience.
So you want to be on those exclusive few following their foot step? Right Now, yes I mean NOW start rolling up those sleeves and do your work to whatever your niche is. Expect to experience more hardships but the reward is worthy and immense that you could ever imagine.
And these are some of the ways to become millionaire. Easy to say but it’s hard to do. You may react that I include one illegal method. But who am I to control the mind of individual. This writer just enumerated lists of methods and its various outcomes it created on this modern world. It’s up to us, our own conscience, our choice and our will power to choose the path that you intended to contribute the world either you produce negative or positive impact to people.
