First, you must DECIDE TO BE A MULTIMILLIONAIRE. You first have to decide that this is what you want for your life in order to leave a lasting legacy for your children, for years to come. This won't happen merely from saving and pinching pennies. Know your worth and declare it each and every day, "I am WORTH over $100,000,000." SAY it and BELIEVE it.
Next, you must GET RID OF POVERTY THINKING. In spite of popular belief, please know that there isn't a shortage of money. There is, however, a shortage of people thinking correctly ABOUT money.
Then, you must ALLOW OTHERS TO GROW ALONG WITH YOU. If you don't help others along the way, don't expect to reach multi-millionaire status. Don't just let MONEY be your motivating factor. By helping others reach their fullest potential will not only validate your place, but will solidify it also.
Then, you must SURROUND YOURSELF WITH MULTI-MILLIONAIRE THINKERS. So a man "thinketh," so is he. If you surround yourself with those who flourish within the parameters of mediocrity, you, too, will join them. Surround yourself with positive thinkers and doers. Surround yourself with those will not provide you with "what you want to hear", but surround yourself with people who will keep you motivated but most of all will keep you constantly challenging yourself for better.
Next, you must CHANGE HOW YOU WORK. Millionaires treat time differently then the rest of us. Wealthy individuals realize that time is their most precious commodity, and not the money itself.
You must then CHANGE YOUR FOCUS FROM SPENDING MONEY TO INVESTING MONEY. Wealthy people don't spend money. They invest it. Here's an example. You purchase a car for style and looks. The wealthy purchase cars for their company that is deductible because it's used to produce revenue. See the difference??!!!
Lastly, you must CREATE MULTIPLE STREAMS OF INCOME. I can't stress this enough. The rich NEVER depend on just one source of producing income. If this is a concept that you can't understand, then maybe, just maybe, multi-millionaire status is just a dream for you instead of an attainable reality.
I'm declaring that 2016 will produce a harvest from the seeds planted so long ago. Have you planted in good soil? Have you cultivated the land? Has it been watered?
If you want BETTER, then do better.
If you want DIFFERENT, then do differently.
Don't complain if you won't change.
