In my contact with self-made millionaires I made several observations both about their general approach towards life that makes them such distinctive figures. These rare but doable characteristics further stencils the known fact that getting rich and enjoying a life of abundance is not luck; it is a designed plan.
The behaviour and characteristics of these men and women are so predictable that you can almost see the success formula in action. Today in MoneyMind we share prominent features that make the Millionaire Character. Features that if you adopt as your own you will become successful in what you do. The road to success is not secluded for a few, it is for everyone.
The question is do you desire to be wealthy, happy and are you in pursuit of happiness? In this article let’s get to the first steps of developing the Millionaire Character.
The first step is to desire abundance and to recognize that there is nothing wrong with it. When you desire you begin to think in a positive way and attract circumstances and events in your life that takes you closer to your desires. The way nature works is that when you think intense positive thoughts, the universe reacts by giving physical equivalents of your thoughts. If you desire to be successful in your career, to create a long lasting legacy, an observation of the Millionaire Character show that desire is the biggest step towards a life of abundance. Desiring is different form wanting; desiring is a sustained burning sensation that drives both your emotional, spiritual and physical being towards the attainment of a goal. Wanting is not enough. Successful men and women have some much desire to be rich that anything else is unimportant. Extraordinary men and women all share a common basis; unlike many of us they did not want just to get rich but they desired it.
Have you ever asked yourself the question why was I born? If you answer this question it will probably be the greatest self -discovery answer in your life. It will assist you to find purpose for your life. If you find your purpose nothing even the greatest adversity will sway you away from going after what you cherish most. You find one thing that you would rather die than not do. There is no right time to start finding purpose. But finding riches without purpose will not give everlasting fulfilment but then right order will be finding purpose and then your pursuit for life abundances become more purposeful. Nelson Mandela found his purpose committed to it even in the face of adversity but nothing swayed him away from his purpose until he achieved a free South Africa. Mark Twain sums it nicely, “the two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
When you have found purpose then you have inadvertently found clarity. Clarity is the ability to choose between actions or inactions that tally with your desire and purpose. You become so clear with what you want and desire that any other events do not matter. This is probably one of the most important observations made about the Millionaire Character. They have the power of clarity. They know exactly what they want to do and where they want to go. They spend most of their time chasing their dreams. They quickly excuse themselves from interactions that will not add value to their lives. They are so focused that it is amazing and they go through life with a game plan because they have clarity. You need to be clear on what exactly you want to achieve. The more clearer your vision the more likely you are to achieve it.
Only 10% of the adult population have their goals written down. The Million Character has his/her goals written down. Goals are signposts and measures of movement towards the desired vision. Without goals you will get a surprise result at the end. Goals offer you an opportunity to take corrective measure midway. Your goals need to be specific and time bound and you will be amazed how much you will be able to achieve when your goals are clearer. Write down your goals at most five and every single day revisit them. By re-reading them you implanting them in your subconscious and the universe will react to your desires. The world seems to reward men and women with clearer goals.
Henry Ford insisted that he will have his V8 Ford even when his engineers insistently told him it was impossible. The Millionaire Character is endowed with a pinch of “stubbornness.” When other believes it will not work, they tend to believe it will work. They get stuck to their beliefs and work at it until it works. They do not give up at the first hurdle and persist until they achieve what they want.
Circle of influence
Millionaire Character maintains a circle of peers whom they look up for advice, motivation and inspiration. They have role models. Bill looks up to Warren Buffet. The Millionaire Character has great influence because they create and maintain valuable relationships. They do not live in isolation but rather exist in powerful networking communities.
They believe in sharing and giving away money. They are usually approachable and are eager to tell their success stories albeit with great humility. They give away ten percent of what they earn to charity and sharing is a great priority. They are largely involved in charity works and generously share their wealth with less privileged.
Develop the Millionaire Character and change the world around you.
