I WANT TO BE A MILLIONAIRE...

***I want it. I want all of it…***

For the first time in my life, I want to be a millionaire (in dollars. Even though it is a dying currency). This is the most outrageous thought I have had in a while. For someone who cares little about money, I find my new craving strange.

*How many people set out to become millionaires in their lifetime?* I was watching a video some time ago about millionaires. It was said that only a few people set out to be millionaires in their lifetime. I was taken aback by that statement. Of course, many people wish to be millionaires, but how many people actually work towards becoming one? The answer is a few.


**The millionaire mindset.**

*How do I become a millionaire (how do I plan to become a millionaire)?* I think the first step is having an eye for opportunities. So in other words having a vision is the quantum leap one needs towards becoming wealthy.


The second step will be to shun mediocrity. We exhibit mediocrity in various ways that impact our lives. I think, and this is up for debate, *contentment is the bedrock of mediocrity*. There is not as limiting as not wanting more or not wanting to push yourself forward by setting mental and physical boundaries on your potential.


I am where I dreamt to be some years ago--being able to cater for myself and the people I care about. However, that is not enough. Now I want to provide for my family with ease. In other words, I want to do the things I have been doing but more efficiently. This means I have to do more, earn more and be more than I have ever been. It entails taking risks, making sacrifices that I would not ordinarily take.


I could stop at this point. Continue to maintain the status quo but that's a dangerous thing. I don't believe in stagnation. I believe that one is either actively progressing or regressing. So the only way to move is to move forward.


*If you are going to dream then dream big.*

One of the major arguments is that chasing money won't make one happy and I totally agree with this. I am happy with who I am, maybe not so with the position I am in. And like Jordan Peterson, the goal of life is not to be happy. The goal is to play this game of life.


I have detested this game. It is pointless and endless. Nevertheless, we must play. The beauty of this game called life is that the more you actively participate the better your chances of winning. Nothing is guaranteed (even failure) but you must play.


I want to be a millionaire (for the fun of it). Well, I still have a very long way to go but I am optimistic.

Lol some dream, some never work towards their dream. I know people who want things they've never actively worked towards, so I guess being intentional counts for something.


Hopefully, you become a millionaire too. I need millionaire friends. It evens the odds against me becoming a millionaire 🀭

Great post. Thanks for sharing. 

If you subscribe to New Age DApps Community
https://peakd.com/c/hive-153630/?ref=atma.love, and begin to study The Matrix-8 Solution and help it come into being, your millionaire dream may just happen sooner, and not just for you!

Here's a post i made today re. the tokenomics: https://peakd.com/hive-153630/@atma.love/matrix-8-seed-post-001-klu-coins-tokenomics 

Feel free to ask questions in the comments. Best to comment on posts within the community  so it's easier to find them when KLU's are distributed for past contributions.

Have fun

It's a classic called 'Think and Grow Rich'. Virtually every millionaire and billionaire I know or have read about/watched videos on have read this book multiple times.

If you want to be a millionaire
First you must make a thousand
One thousand times.

You could make a thousand
by earning 2.73 per day
but you do not have a thousand years.

If you could earn and save 50,000
per year for 20 years, or 137 per day,
then it could be done in 20 years.

If you want to be a millionaire, 
better to focus on what 
you can make in a day, and save it.

Or save at least 10% of what you earn 
each day and save it away, in Gold or Silver.
Or Bitcoin, alternatively.
 
If you were to buy a little 
each day and every day, 
then you would have 
much more than you do today.

So for a thousand days,
do something your future self
with thank you for. 

Earn a little Hive, 
Save a little Bitcoin,
Stake a little LEO, 
Buy a lot of Silver, 
Save a little Gold.

>First you must make a thousand
One thousand times.

I don't plan to earn my way to millions if that's the case. Few people have done that.

I'm not an expert but if I do have a shot at a million dollars in my lifetime it will either come from investing or creating a product or service many deem valuable. I honestly don't believe I can save my way to a million.

You're right. Nothing is guaranteed but if you're not stagnating and learning, evolving as life evolves as well, then you'll be enriched in one way or another. Hope you get to your millionaire goal!

My goal is to travel the world without obstacles. Being a millionaire  would definitely help with that. :)

>  Continue to maintain the status quo but that's a dangerous thing.

This is what happens to many driven people. They decide to settle on just good enough, when excellence could've been right around the corner.

>My goal is to travel the world without obstacles. Being a millionaire would definitely help with that. :)

Same here. There is bi way I am dying without visiting at least a hundred countries in my lifetime 

>This is what happens to many driven people. They decide to settle on just good enough, when excellence could've been right around the corner.

Reading Jordan Peterson's 12 rules of life has changed my mindset on a lot of things. He touched on this subject too. I believe the best I can do with my life is to be better. Rather than finding a place to settle, the goal is to constantly improve.
