So you want to be a millionaire? Not unusual, many people harbour such a desire. Few however achieve their ambition. Most never get their dream beyond the realms of a fluffy fancy breezing around in their mind. In short they don’t … One : Evolve a concrete plan and … Two : They don’t write down their plan and … Three : They don’t act on the plan.
But wait … there’s a FOURTH infinitely bigger obstacle which blocks the way of those seeking millionaire status. Worse than having no clear idea of where to start, they are blind to one simple, yet critical factor. A reality essential to any aspiring millionaire but so obvious that it totally escapes their attention. What is it that they so spectacularly fail to see? It’s this –
$1m is One Million ONE Dollars!!
You want to be a millionaire? Then don’t think millions. Think One Single Dollar. It’s only by knowing how to make $1 that you can accumulate great wealth. Put it this way – If you can’t make just $1, how on earth do you expect to make millions of them? No chance! But, when you know how to make $1 then there is no limit to how often you can repeat the trick. Remember –
$1m is One Million ONE Dollars!!
Let’s make that first dollar.
Find a solitary location with table and chair, quiet with no distractions. Put $1 on the table. Also a pen, a blank sheet of paper and a timer. Set the timer to 1 hour. Begin.
Draw a line down the middle of the paper, thus creating two equal columns. In the left hand column write how much money you intend to make (financial target), then how long you are giving yourself to reach the target (time limit). Eg $1m and 5 years.
next column …
Now, concentrate your gaze on the $1. As you do, think of and picture ways you can realistically turn that $1 into $2. As the ideas flood from your imagination, list them in the right hand column on your sheet of paper. Write down as many ways as possible to make just $1. When your timer sounds at the end of 1 hour – stop!
Select your favourite way to make $1 from the list you’ve created, then immediately go out and put the strategy into practice – ACT NOW!
As soon as you have made that first $1, repeat the process. This time create $2 – either by $1 + $1 twice or by $2 into $4. Continue like this until your financial target is met – simple!
Pin your list in a prominent position where you will see it and be motivated by it each day. Use other strategies from your list as and when you consider it desireable. Add others as you think of them too.
Keep at it until you reach your goal. Determination and perseverance are all important.
So you want to be a millionaire? Then say, “Yes!” to One Million ONE Dollars!! It really is that simple.
