Your ultimate success in your career will come from this less than ideal situation later on. One day you’ll look back on this career crisis as a blessing in disguise. This crisis will set you on the right path and help you to re-evaluate everything.
Check your self-confidence. If it’s low, now is the time to build it up. High self-esteem and good self-confidence are essential traits to help you on your way. However, don’t let this delay you. You can fake it until you make it and the more you practice being confident, the sooner it becomes a part of who you are.
Being open to learn makes you more attractive to millionaires. I love learning and reading. I am constantly reading about the past millionaires, CEO’s of high end companies that I admire. I highly recommend doing the research and reading one book a month or even more if you can.
Alright, what I said in step one was misleading (it wouldn’t be the first time so stop complaining). After you have decent income coming in every month, you need to save at least some of it. How much? It all depends on how fast you want to become a millionaire. There’s no right or wrong answer. No pain, no earl shoaff how to become a millionaire my friend.
10% isn’t a likely return: The historic 100 year average for US Stocks, dividends included, is around 10%. Not great at investing? Go open a Scottrade or Fidelity account and put the money in a highly diversified stock fund like SPY or VTI. Put your 10% or 20% in every month, and don’t touch it for 25 years. That will get you pretty close to 10% returns.
As you can see, the numbers make this sound easy. Here’s a fun millionaire calculator you can use. Try out different scenarios based on where your finances are currently, your realistic contributions, and how much you expect in returns.
You’ll have made $400 million in a single year! So pay yourself a fat salary for all your hard work. And pay your “bankers” fat salaries for all their hard work (But don’t worry–your bankers won’t actually have to do anything. You’ll just need one of them to borrow the money from the Fed and buy the Treasuries, which he will be able to do part-time.) At the end of the year, celebrate. It’s bonus time!
Be tenacious. Success requires an ability to keep getting up after failures. There will be plenty of failures as you try to find the best ways to make a million or more. This isn’t about the safety net of an average salary and the boss’s orders being met each day. To become a millionaire, you have to be prepared to make decisions that won’t always succeed but if the risks aren’t taken, then the potential for success won’t be realized either.
It doesn’t have to be a specific business. There are many business ideas; search a need for a particular business in your surrounding area, do the SWOT analysis to see if it will work, then do an initiation. Being well-known will come once you’ve become established and achieved success.
Instead, the big payoff comes if and when you sell: A sampler of median sales prices from the online marketplace BizBuySell shows that the typical restaurant went for about $125,000 last year, pet-care shops sold for $215,000, communications firms commanded around $700,000, while software companies got a cool $1.3 million.
As you can see, adopting a more aggressive investment strategy is a key component of growing wealth, and if you start saving early on, you’ll have plenty of time to ride out the stock market’s ups and downs.

The Strachans’ Millionaire soundtrack was honoured by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers with numerous awards, the earliest of them awarded in 2000. The original music cues were given minor rearrangements for the U.S. version’s clock format in 2008; for example, the question cues were synced to the “ticking” sounds of the game clock. Even later, the Strachan score was removed from the U.S. version altogether for the introduction of the shuffle format in 2010, in favour of a new musical score with cues written by Jeff Lippencott and Mark T. Williams, co-founders of the Los Angeles-based company Ah2 Music.

Now that you are saving money, you need to invest it wisely. Sticking it under the mattress or slowly building up in a savings account isn’t going to help you reach your goals any faster. You don’t have to read the Wall Street Journal or watch CNBC everyday while actively managing your portfolio in order to be a good investor. Some of the best investment advice is to simply invest regularly and in a diversified portfolio. If you do this you’ll already be doing more than most people and on your way to building wealth.

The million is sometimes used in the English language as a metaphor for a very large number, as in “Not in a million years” and “You’re one in a million”, or a hyperbole, as in “I’ve walked a million miles” and “You’ve asked the million-dollar question”.

Siebold, a Chicago native, says most people have a lottery mentality and have been brainwashed to believe that the only chance to get rich is by picking winning numbers or playing slot machines. The rich, however, have trained themselves to expect big things to happen and earn more money. They’re bold, aggressive and fearless in their pursuit of wealth.

He said it looked interesting and hey, it was free (having no idea you could sell it). I scanned it in my Amazon seller app and realized it was worth around $150. He was so excited. We listed it for sale for $130 and it sold! Going to tell him, he just made $130!
