you can take care of your­self, you can take care of thou­sands of peo­ple. Knowing hu­man na­ture is the key to suc­cess. Mil­lion­aires un­der­stand mo­ti­va­tion, body lan­guage, tone of voice, tact, di­plo­macy, em­pa­thy and ev­ery­thing re­lated to emo­tional in­tel­li­gence. Most of this can be learnt by sim­ply pay­ing at­ten­tion to the peo­ple around you. Every mil­lion­aire must put a cre­ative spin on the prod­uct and ser­vice they of­fer. In­no­va­tion will make you im­mensely wealthy, even if you de­liver a prod­uct slightly bet­ter than your com­peti­tors.

mil­lion­aire has a sys­tem that works. They’re well or­gan­ised and flex­i­ble enough to adapt to their chang­ing en­vi­ron­ments. Al­most every busi­ness de­ci­sion you will make will come from your desk. If you’re or­gan­ised and know how to lo­cate in­for­ma­tion in the fastest way pos­si­ble, you will have the skills to be­come a mil­lion­aire.

your work, and work your plan. This is the motto of all mil­lion­aires. No one can suc­ceed with­out a well-de­fined plan. You must set your goals daily and plan your years, months, weeks and days well in ad­vance. Fol­low the Five P’s: Proper Plan­ning Pre­vents Poor Per­for­mance. Op­por­tu­ni­ties only come to those who are pre­pared.

can only be re­spon­si­ble for a large amount of money (R1 000 000) if you can take care of a small amount (R10). Mil­lion­aires know their bank bal­ances at all times. They record their ex­pen­di­tures. They count their in­come. They do their own taxes (with a lot of help). They know their fi­nan­cial stand­ing. You can only ob­tain wealth if you un­der­stand your money.

un­der­stand that the se­cret of liv­ing is giv­ing. Many wealthy peo­ple give re­lent­lessly. You can only be wealthy by en­hanc­ing the wealth of oth­ers. When you en­hance the wealth of oth­ers, you en­hance so­ci­ety as a whole. How­ever, when it comes to char­ity, they don’t just drop a cheque in the pile like most peo­ple do. In­stead, they par­tic­i­pate by knowing ex­actly where the money is go­ing.

re­la­tion­ships is in­stru­men­tal in the world of busi­ness. You must be a re­li­able source to at­tract re­li­able sources. The only way you can get big things done is by em­ploy­ing those who can do the things that you can­not – or don’t want to – do. The peo­ple you’re look­ing for are also look­ing for you.

Every mil­lion­aire is a leader. They un­der­stand that they must fol­low great lead­ers as they be­come one them­selves. They know when to take re­spon­si­bil­ity and ini­tia­tive when tough sit­u­a­tions oc­cur. When test­ing times come, they pass the test and as­sure oth­ers in a pos­i­tive way that they are in good hands. A mark of a true leader is the abil­ity to in­spire oth­ers to do the unimag­in­able.

means fo­cus­ing first on what needs to be done most. Mil­lion­aires don’t go mow­ing the lawn when they know they need to do busi­ness. Since man­ag­ing your time is more about man­ag­ing your en­ergy, you must seek ways to con­serve your body and mind to fo­cus on the projects that de­serve your ut­most at­ten­tion.
