To become a self-made millionaire, a lot of self improvement and sacrifice has to take place. You have to be willing to go the extra mile that others aren’t willing to do. Take a peak at these qualities below, that millionaires who started from the bottom like many of us have:
People will tell you what you can’t do, where you can’t go, and who you can’t be. Forget these people. When I was in college, I failed a class because of my writing ability. Because of this, I dropped out and wrote my book in 10 days. I sold thousands of them and destroyed numerous obstacles along the way. Be fearless and erase all limitations.
People don’t know what they want until you give it to them. Sometimes you have to be forceful with your offerings. Move people to action by creating demand for their needs. Henry Ford was known for saying, “If I asked the people what they wanted, they would have said ‘Faster Horses’” If you keep supplying and proving the need, people will buy what you’re selling.
Most people act so routinely that you can predict their every move. To be more strategic, you must meander your way into different thought patterns, languages, and activities. By consciously creating opportunities for yourself and doing the unthinkable, you’ll be able to exceed your own expectations. Eventually, predictable people will ask you how you did it and you’ll have to give them your unpredictable answers.
No one can copy you if you create a signature style for yourself. Whether you’re wearing bushy bowties or carrying Birkin bags, you need your style to work in your favor. Always say to yourself, “There is no one doing what I’m doing in the way that I’m doing it.” Eventually, your uniqueness will attract the kind of reputation that you’ve been looking for. All millionaires are completely unduplicatable.
To become a millionaire, you have to push the limits. You’ve got to ask for things that no one has dared to ask for. Controversy means that you are willing to walk and talk about the subjects that people avoid. Sometimes, you’ll be unpopular for being controversial, but do it anyways. Always push your agenda and help people understand what you’re trying accomplish. If they understand and want to help, bring them on your team.
