DO YOU FEAR BEING A BILLIONAIRE?

by 49 comments
I just realized I have a slight fear to reach my multi billionaire goal...

I have a slight anxiety about it, and, I am subconciously already stressed about being somewhere in the top 45 of wealth magnates.

This is because I think I may cannot make it. The goal doesn't always seem achieveable to me. I know the constant work involved, the backstabbing, the meetings, oh the chaos!!!!

$300 million? CHeck as good as done.

A billion? Well er umm flip flops...


What should I do? Get hypnosis, see a shrink, join a seance? :rolleyes:

    BLOOODY HELL ...NO !!!!

    No seances , no shrinks or hypnosis

    I too was afraid to be very wealthy

    I was afraid i would become i would become arrogant .

    I was afraid i wouldn't have real friends

    But all that is a lie ...

    Money DOESN'T CHANGE YOU, you only have more resources to express who you are

    If you are a generous man, you have more resources to give and help more people

    If you are a wicked person , you have more resources to hurt more people

    Money is neutral ... It is ok to be stinking rich

    Lets hope you do some good with it

    Why do you want to be a billionaire? What the h*ll are you going to do with all that money, seriously? I mean, I have pretty high income goals myself but in my opinion, the main focus should be life quality. Would you feel great, working your ass off for 40 years to succeed with that? I would feel like a failure regardless of the billion dollars.

    i truly admire your willingness to stick your neck out on the chopping block with this question. since most will never come close, you will continue to draw comments of angst from those who repress their wealth or greed or values towards money. you are correct too-money only magnifies more of who you already are. if you are a jerk, more money, bigger jerk. if you are generous, more money, more benefits to society with your resources. a billion is also in the very big picture, not that much still. people are crazy if they think bill gates or warren buffet were ever the richest people on the planet. the bankers of the world if they lost gates money, wouldn't even know it was missing. i am curious, are you already a millionaire? if so, have you made ten million yet? i stopped at 8 figures and took 5 years off and travelled the world with my wife and kids and lived my dreams-not money, being a dad, husband, and being with my family. now i am ready to go for a 9 figure result. if you have not made 8 figures yet, that is your goal. or 7. it is all the same thing to becoming a billionaire. most do not realize, they need to become a hundredaire first-then a thousandaire, a ten-thousandaire-all the way up to a millionaire. inch by inch it is a cinch. prosperous regards with your goals! i do not fear being a billionaire. thanks again for the great question.

      Why do I want to be a billionaire? Because if I am honest with myself, and if I take away my herd behavior, I know I want more than millions....i need more than millions. I've done the calculations...I have causes I want to dig into....people to take care of....but, I also, have a fear, the stress to rise above,be a trend setter, be the go to guy as an innovator, and, to having people want more favors from me.

    As someone else said, try NLP if you are serious. This will help you eliminate self limiting beliefs. You can buy a book on it in amazon.com (PM me for recommendations)

    That kind of fear would be welcome.

    I think as mant people fear success as they do failure. I think some people who think they fear failure are more afraid of their own success and what comes with it. Getting started makes the impossible possible and the dream a new reality... that's scary. And that's why 100% of us don't succeed in my opinion.

    No! Why would I?...

    I won't change... I won't even really go buying a bunch of houses and cars.. I might get a Lambo for my 16th birthday and a House for my parents but after that the rest I will save up to do different things...

    If I had $1,000,000 I don't think I would ever go poor because I would use that money to make more profits and use profits to make profits etc..

    Well, it's pretty much outside of what anyone can imagine. If you're getting paid $2000 per hour, don't have any costs whatsoever and you're working a full time job, it would take you about 260 years to become a billionaire.

    The goal doesn't always seem achieveable to me. I know the constant work involved, the backstabbing, the meetings, oh the chaos!!!!
    That's the next thing, why do you need a billion?

    I don't see how anyone could need a billion dollars for themselves, but if you have some grander social goal in mind, you might actually have a reason to drive you. Without extraordinary focus on that goal, it'll be almost impossible to deal with the problems and frustrations that come with the territory. "Almost", because some people, e.g. Zuckerberg or Branson, seem to have a much easier time than the typical Fortune 500 CEO.

    What should I do? Get hypnosis, see a shrink, join a seance? :rolleyes:
    If you're serious, make a map of where you want to go, when, and why. Then look for ways to achieve it without selling your soul - for instance get books on other billionaires or billion dollar ideas.

    If you haven't already, get your basics down, i.e., make sure you have enough money coming in to pay for suits, travel costs, conventions, etc.

    I'd also suggest you get some basic books on raising venture capital, entrepreneurship, leadership and (regular) marketing.

    In conclusion, get a perfectly clear picture of what you want, get a good map of the territory and then work like hell.

    Nice sig, btw.

      Why do I want to be a billionaire?

      ...I have causes I want to dig into....people to take care of....

      Let's just say, I need major money to make those social changes.

      Also, wealth is all relative, what is alot to one is nothing to someone else. I am sure you've heard of millionaires who died living homeless. I know one guy died with a million and another died with $4 million. The guy with the million used to pan handle as if he was poor.

      Well, it's pretty much outside of what anyone can imagine.
      I hope not

      Nice sig, btw.
      Glad you enjoyed it

    when the world can decide what a billion is, then i MAY start to worry

      if you fear and not ready to be a billionaire, then you will never be a billionaire. remember that if you want to achieve something, you must be passionate and firm that you really want to achieve it. but if you say you want to but subconsciously you don't want to then you can't have it.

    Being a billionaire is definitely a big change, when you are just making regular salary. I mean its a big jump. Anything new can be scary. I would like to become a millionaire as it will give me the freedom that I want, dont need to become a billionaire. But once being a millionaire maybe I will desire more... as always? Will it ever end? =)

    Fear of the unknown and changes.
    The only thing to fear is fear itself.

    How about a better question? like..."How Awesome Would It Be To Be A Billionaire?"
    • Profile picture of the author Enfusia
      1st why would you fear that? Do you think you'd enlarge negative traits that greatly going from 100 million to 1 billion? So, why wouldn't you fear 100 million?

      And since you don't then you can see that your fear is unfounded and a complete waste of your mental energy. Don't think of a billion as all that much money. The people like Buffet and Gates are only put there for your enjoyment. Their are folks like Putin who have hundreds of billions. Then there is a level above that who are the people with real money.

      So, since you aren't afraid of 100 million and you can see that 1 silly little billion is not that much money then what could you possibly have to fear?

      2. Don't listen to anyone who asks you questions like "what could you possibly want a billion dollars for" or other such nonsense. They don't believe they can do it and so want to pull you back down with them so they don't have to see you do it and have it rubbed in their face that they are the ones who are scared.

      3. Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Think of a billion dollar idea and believe in it. Have faith in it. See its potential in numbers....Then go out and create it !
