i want to be a millionaire (seriously.)


It's never too late to make a new goal for yourself. Over the past few days, that's exactly what I've been doing. I haven't felt this rush of determination since I started that one company years ago. I've been having the same feelings of positiveness that made my previous venture so successful... and let me tell you, it's a welcome feeling!

I decided that I'm tired of the standards that society puts on all of us when it comes to finances. The system usually goes something like this:  Go to high school. go to college, spend years afterwards trying to pay it off, work your butt off, "save" money for a family, and hopefully be able to retire happily at 65.  I don't want to be a person who simply works and works with hopes of *maybe* one day finding I've saved enough money to retire. I want stability and freedom... something I think everyone deserves. I want my mom to be able to retire. I want our future kids to be set for life. I want to be able to give back to people who need it. I want to be a millionaire before I'm 30.

Maybe that sounds crazy? I think that with the right steps taken, and complete dedication to the task, it could definitely be possible. What's stopping any of us? I want to go all in. I spent the past few days developing an idea that could just be the ticket to the start of a new success. I'm excited, and am already getting things underway to accomplish this goal. I'll share more about it later, but I really wanted to spread some good, determined vibes your way today. Take a risk, don't be afraid of creating a new goal... especially one that may sound crazy to everyone else but in your mind makes complete sense. It's the crazy ideas that sometimes come out on top ;)

And hey, if I don't actually become a millionaire, at least I gave an honest effort, which is more than a lot of people could say.

  2. I think its healthy to have goals, especially extremely big ones!
    There must be nothing better than the feeling of achieving something you never thought was possible.
    Good luck :)

  7. I think you can become a millionaire if you really set your mind to it. I don't think it sounds crazy at all. You wouldn't be the first person to become one, and if they can do it so can you. When you do become a millionaire, I hope you will remember all of us little people who encouraged you. ;)

  8. You could totally become a millionaire. If anyone is determined enough, it's you. You could do it. I can't wait to hear more about your plans. I'm kind of have the same feelings now--I have several ideas that I would love to have come to fruition. ... I just HAVE TO DO IT.

  10. Half a millionaire is pretty good too, three-quarters if a millionaire is even better, ha ha! Oh, thank you for sharing your determination and motivation! It's helping me a little. Good luck with your goals, I'm sure someone as determined as you will succeed in everything you put your mind and heart into.

  15. These are seriously the words I needed to hear today. I feel like I've been in a little funk recently and not feeling inspired to push myself. Why can't we just all be millionaires. Can't wait to hear what genius things you've been planning as of late ;)

  23. Thank you for reposting this. Today i was starting to doubt the path i have chosen thinking that it will never work out for me even tho millions of others are doing it. This gives me hope that what i am feeling called to do is right for me and i WILL be successful. Thanks for relighting the fire :)

  24. I read a really interesting book about money recently, by James Arthur Ray, called "Harmonic Wealth" (http://www.amazon.ca/Harmonic-Wealth-James-Ray/dp/1401322646/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356814654&sr=1-1). He offers a really inspirational perspective on finance and how it doesn't have to be the way we're told it is.

    After my best friend read it, she bought a boat. She gave her landlady notice and is moving onto the boat on the 1st. Crazy stuff.
