Seven Millionaire Success Secrets Revealed:
Secret 1. Decide you want to be prosperous and decide that you will do whatever it takes to achieve this goal. In deciding this you are deciding to take action that will change your life. Understand that prosperity does not just mean being rich or wealthy. It encompasses all things, from happiness, to health, to wealth, to life goals and more.
Secret 2. There is no easy way to prosperity, and if you are looking for an easy way, then stop reading now because there is no easy way. A recent survey asked 1,000 millionaires for one secret to success. 95% said that a key to success was to work long hours for the next 5-10 years. Put in the time. Pay your dues. Get where you want to go/be.
Secret 3. Believe you can achieve any goal you set. Dream it, tell your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband, tell your friends, and when you go to bed at night and dream about what you will do when you become prosperous. Not a single millionaire has succeeded without dreaming about it first.
Secret 4. Plan to succeed beyond your wildest dreams and then some. If you wanted to have one million dollars plan on ten or a hundred million, because if you dream of $100,000,000, and only manage to make only 10% ($10,000,000), or even 1% ($1,000,000), that still makes you a millionaire!
Secret 5. Be honest and fair with people. This does not mean you should not take advantage of situations or of other people’s weaknesses. It means you should maintain a moral high ground and not cheat or lie your way through life/to success.
Secret 6. Understand that failure is the key to success. Prosperity is relatively rare because, most, people fear failure. Most people don’t realize that failure, and overcoming failure, is a part of success. If you fail, try again, and again, and again, and again, until you succeed. Don’t ever give up! Either find a way or make a way.
Secret 7. When deciding what direction you want to take, realize that you don’t have to be first, or be the best. While being first and/or being the best can lead to success, the vast majority of success comes from modeling others success. You may think it’s not sensible to be the 6th pizza shop on a particular street, but think about this- Why are there 5 pizza shops on this particular street? It is possible that this particular street is the perfect location for a pizza shop. Can this particular street handle 1 more? Consider this- In time, if your pizza shop at least matches your other competitors, you will have a 17% piece of the pie, and possibly more.
“Don’t settle for less than everything you want. Know when to shut up and collect the money. It’s better to get paid than be right. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but it can afford you the time to find happiness. Without a challenge, you can’t rise to anything. Pick your battles. Push your limits. Ask for more. Demand better. Eliminate should from your life by doing. Live a life without regrets, by trying everything that interests you in the least, and don’t waste time, because time is the most valuable commodity in life.” Michael “MJ The Terrible” Johnson – Founder & Owner – Masters of Money, LLC.
