I would like to start off by saying “You can have anything in this life you so desire.” I know this sounds like a cliché, but it happens to be true. I’m not here to be your cheerleader, I’m here to tell you like it is. Self-made millionaires are no different or any better than you, they just think differently than you do. They make different moves, they do things you do not want to do, they take calculated risks, they lay it on the line, and they’re mavericks. In other words, they are the world’s risk-takers.

If you want to become wealthy it has to start with you. The secret to changing your lifestyle goes beyond wishing and wanting for a better life. The first step to become wealthy is to step out of your safety zone. You must have the guts to reach for your goals. Do you feel you were meant to be rich? If you do, then let’s continue. The cowards can stop reading now.
Many people daydream and even organize their plan of action to obtain wealth. What do the wealthy know, and how can you use that to help you to become wealthy? The fact is the majority of people did not create their wealth by buying a lottery ticket, or stumbling across a long lost relative that left them a fortune. Those that created their wealth, created it by having the right mindset, and finding the right opportunity to create the lifestyle they envisioned.
If you want to become wealthy; it starts with evaluating your values and up bringing. Most of us were, at a young age, taught to believe you go to school, get a degree and find a job. You want to know what is wrong with this philosophy. It results in 2% of the population owning 95% of all the wealth. Education is critical in all facets of life, but school will not teach you how to create a life filled with wealth, abundance, and prosperity. They will not teach you how to become wealthy by building your own business. In other words, school will mold you to fit perfectly into the “go to school, get a degree, and get a job” mold.
Let’s take a look at some core values and critical factors in building that sought after “millionaire mindset.”
Self-made millionaires have an action game plan. For your plan to be truly effective, it must require you to step out of the ordinary. It must make you feel a little uncomfortable. You must step out of your safety zone. The majority of self-made millionaires got that way by starting their own business, creating a product or providing some sort of in-demand service. But most importantly, they created lasting success by doing what they love. A good rule of thumb is to not start something just because you feel it will make a lot of money. Turn your hobby into a profitable enterprise.
