Be­com­ing a mil­lion­aire is eas­ier than it’s ever been. The truth is that all of us can be­come as wealthy as we de­cide to be. None of us is ex­cluded from wealth. If you have the de­sire to re­ceive money, what­ever the amount, you have all of the rights to do so, and there’s no limit to how much you can earn for your­self.

Money is like the sun; it does not dis­crim­i­nate. It doesn’t say: “I will not give light and warmth to this flower, tree or per­son be­cause I don’t like them.” Like the sun, money is abun­dantly avail­able to all of us who truly be­lieve that it is for us. No one is ex­cluded.

Here are seven tips to help you be­come a mil­lion­aire:

Change your think­ing

You have to see the big­ger pic­ture. When most peo­ple see just trees, you need to look at the en­tire for­est. This way, you’ll be able to chart your own course and get to where you want to be. By hav­ing a vi­sion and the goals to at­tain that vi­sion, your pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less.

You’ll have to go through plenty of self-dis­cov­ery be­fore you earn your first mil­lion. Know­ing the truth about your­self isn’t al­ways the eas­i­est task. Chang­ing your think­ing is a re­quire­ment for wealth.

Save re­lent­lessly

For many in­di­vid­u­als, there’s too much month at the end of the money. How­ever, you’ll have to make your best ef­fort to save as much as you can, even if it’s a ridicu­lously low amount.

There are many tech­niques for sav­ing money. You need to find your own sys­tem and start build­ing your wealth. Even if you’re on a fixed in­come, you need to find the dis­ci­pline nec­es­sary to save.

Whether you start out with sav­ing R50 or R500 a month, do the best you can and in­vest this money in the best way pos­si­ble.

Learn from mil­lion­aires

Most peo­ple are sur­rounded by what I like to call “de­fault friends”. Th­ese peo­ple are ac­quain­tances who we see at the gro­cery store, gym, school, work and other places. We nat­u­rally be­friend these peo­ple as trust grows. How­ever, in most cases, these peo­ple aren’t mil­lion­aires and can­not help you be­come one ei­ther.

If you truly de­sire and as­pire to be a mil­lion­aire, these peo­ple may tell you it’s im­pos­si­ble. They’ll tell you that you’re liv­ing in a fan­tasy world and why you’ll never be able to make it hap­pen. In­stead, learn from mil­lion­aires. Let go of these re­la­tion­ships and seek new ones that can help you get to the next level.

In­dulge in wealth

To be­come wealthy, you must first learn about wealth. This means that you’ll have to put your­self in sit­u­a­tions that you’ve never been in be­fore. For in­stance, you can test-drive a new car, get a re­al­tor to show you an ex­pen­sive home, or get a brownie from the finest bak­ery in town.

Most of this will not break your bank. In fact, some of it is free. You’ll have to go where 97% of peo­ple aren’t will­ing to go if you want to make your fi­nan­cial dreams hap­pen. Are there lux­ury golf cour­ses, spas or mu­se­ums in your area that will al­low you to in­dulge in wealth? If so, take ad­van­tage.

Believe it’s pos­si­ble

If you be­lieve that it’s pos­si­ble to be­come a mil­lion­aire, you can make it hap­pen. How­ever, if you’ve ex­cluded your­self from this pos­si­bil­ity and think that it’s for other peo­ple, you’ll never have money.

Learn re­lent­lessly about your­self and money. You can do this by read­ing books that have been writ­ten by mil­lion­aires them­selves. By gain­ing a well-rounded ed­u­ca­tion and stay­ing in­spired, you’ll be able to get the wealth you’ve been look­ing for.

En­large your ser­vice

Your ma­te­rial wealth is the sum of your to­tal con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety. Peo­ple are wait­ing to be served. En­larg­ing your ser­vice is also about “go­ing the ex­tra mile”. When it comes to help­ing oth­ers, you must give it ev­ery­thing you have.

Don’t think about whether the peo­ple you serve will ap­pre­ci­ate your ser­vice or not.

You just plant the seeds and na­ture will take care of the rest.

In ev­ery neigh­bour­hood, no mat­ter where you are, there are al­ways op­por­tu­ni­ties to do good. Your com­mu­nity des­per­ately needs your help. If you would only open your mind and heart to these op­por­tu­ni­ties, you’ll find that they will be ready to re­ward you in due time.

Fur­ther­more, you can­not say no to op­por­tu­ni­ties and ex­pect to be­come a mil­lion­aire. You must seize ev­ery op­por­tu­nity that has your name on it. Some­times the mon­e­tary re­ward will not come im­me­di­ately, but if you keep plant­ing seeds, even­tu­ally you’ll grow your fruit­ful crop.

Money is the har­vest of your pro­duc­tion. Every­thing that you have is in di­rect pro­por­tion to your ac­tions. If you’ve done ev­ery­thing that you can do and have a pur­pose for your life, you can ex­pect to be­come wealthy. You must de­sire wealth and even­tu­ally the money will come when you are ready for it.
