    For me it is about how much I can do to help charities I like to support. I also like to inspire others that it is possible to be successful and be generous at the same time.

    I also like to leave a legacy of inspirational life adventures to help motivate others anytime, anywhere.

      I would like to do what I like to do and of course it would be great to be independent. To have time to travel and the ability to afford something.

      But first I need to get out of that deep hole before I can start dreaming of a big amount of money.

      I think it should be normal to contribute part of the money for charities and needy people.

    I would like to ask, as to why you cannot do all the above before you become a millionaire.

    No one has written something outrageous like buying a $60 million yacht or having a G550. There is nothing wrong with these things, I just hope that the above people realize that you do not need to be a millionaire to do what you do. I can't wait to hit the seven figures either, but I'm already doing what I want to do.

    So essentially the answer for me is security.

    I would like the freedom of choice. The ability and power to do whatever crosses my mind at any given point. I would respect the security the cash would provide along with the benefits of being able to help my siblings. I have 3 siblings currently still studying. Its not just about the bling, a million is not enough for me, what I want is more.

    My girlfriend thinks I get a Darth Vader look when discussing my plans. According to her, I want to take over the world. Its quite funny, because she's doing a Masters in Enviromental studies, my answer is always, "If I take over the world, I can save the enviroment" she's not buying it though.

    I don't believe I have ever considered being a millionaire. Actually, I always could care less if I made a million as long as I was doing what I wanted to do.

    As mentioned above, why do you need a million dollars to do what you want? Why does there have to be a "final number" on success? Why do you need a million to give to charities? Why not give something more precious... your time?

    I understand business and planning and goal setting, etc..
    It is what I do and have done for many others for many years... and I will tell you now, if you wait to live, then you may miss the boat.

    Yes, you should set numbers on your business... but if you set a number on when you will begin living, then you may well miss out on a life.

    Today and no other day matters, my friends. Live it like you will never have another chance to live it...
    No one will find happiness by hanging around on a forum looking for the keys to success. They do not exist on the outside. Each story is different and you must write your own.

    Use this forum to learn from and to motivate and to help each other. Enjoy your time here. Don't waste your precious short time on Earth dreaming of a million dollars that doesn't even matter. It is only money, after all. Just a human idea that has caused much suffering in this world.

    So smile and be happy with who you are and what you have. Then enjoy your business ventures as "adventures" and not chores and tasks and searches for magic keys. I think you will find once you reach that million that it isn't quite what you thought it was going to be.

    May Google look fondly upon all of your Internet ventures

    I DON'T want to be a millionaire.

    I want a good work/life balance. If I can work 4 to 5 hours a day and make 80 to 90K per year like I do now, I'm good. I will not, ever, work a 90 hour week in order to say I'm a millionaire.

    However, because I invest smartly and have zero debt, I will be a millionaire most likely within the next ten years.

This includes helping my dad retire instead of having to work his job (truck driver, which requires him to push/pull/lift/load heavy oxygen/helium/etc. gas cylinders every day and at his age it's getting tougher) and helping provide my stepmom the care/medicine/etc. she needs/will need (she has an almost crippling medical disorder that gets worse with age).

    Why the fascination with "millionairism"? What too many people don't realise is that becoming a millionaire is very difficult and almost impossible to plan for. In most cases it happens accidentally as a result of giving massive value (as has been said) impacting millions. Many of the things you think will come only with millionairism (especially the emotive reasons such as freedom) can be had without ever going anywhere near being a millionaire.

    I've interviewed hundreds of people on this very topic and (in all but a few) the overwhelming real desire is to be free - not "rich". Freedom is a far easier thing to achieve and when you're free you will feel the same as what you expect it would feel like to be a "millionaire".

    I have almost no desire to be a millionaire but I have a strong desire to be free and being free is much cheaper than trying to become a "millionaire. The biggest problem for most people is they have absolutely no idea how much money they want anyway. They just want "lots" or "millions" and if you're a goal driven individual (I'm not) then you better get clear on exactly how much you want to make and more importantly "why" you want it. When you finally out "why" you will see that you could have all that without ever getting anywhere near millions.

    I've hung around many "millionaires" (as a stock market trader, speaker and coach) and got some solid advice from many of them. In fact (they say...and I've seen and experienced personally) to live the life of a millionaire only takes about $250-400k. The difference between the two of those numbers are extravagance. The higher number involves mega luxuries like hiring helicopters or flying all your friends around the planet to "join you" or throwing massive and elaborate parties...etc. If that type of life doesn't interest you then you will only need closer to the $250k per year mark to live like and look like a millionaire. That's about 5k per week.

    Most people (and I'm definitely on a crusade to change this) don't realise that for about 100k per year you can have a fantastic life but it requires that you can control your expenses. There's no point at all in making a million and spending a million. You will feel just as awful as someone with a plain job that spends all they money and lives from pay to pay. The real "trick" to financial freedom is to escape financial stress and that involves making a "fair bit" more than your expenses and making sure that financial stress doesn't rule (and ruin) your life.

    Forget "millionairism" and focus on freedom. It's closer and will give you more time to then come up with ideas to make "millions". Millions don't give you freedom anywhere near as easy as freedom will give you millions. Think about it. Freedom first.

    That's what I reckon anyway...

      Could not agree more!!! for me internet marketing would never be about becoming a millionaire (not that I would say no to that though!) rather it is about making enough so you just don't have to worry about money as much anymore.

      While the millionaire lifestyle (massive house, expensive cars, huge shopping trips, private jet etc) has its appeal (often very strong) I think that being comfortable in yourself and having a happy home and family life is a stronger indicator of happiness.

      People often forget that a millionaire life does not remove worry it adds worry I would be happy to live debt free and happy in rather more modest circumstances, though as I said, a spare million would not be the most terrible thing to happen

    well I no longer really want to be a millionaire I just want to take care of my loved ones and be comfortable.

    I've found that from observing the life of the rich and famous that most of them are really unhappy and feel empty inside just look at your favorite celebrity: drug addiction, thoughts of suicide, weapon charges, anxiety attacks and worse.

    Just enough to pay the bills and live conformably for me thanks anything else I get I'm giving to the poor and meek and investing into the church.

        Depending on where you live and the cost of living there, making around $250k a year you can pretty much have what you want material wise.

        If you have a bunch of kids, then add another 200k to that.

        Why do I like money? Mostly selfish reasons. I love to see the numbers in my bank account. I love to count it. I love to watch my accounts increase.

        Define millionaire?

          A Millionaire in this context is anyone that has 1 Million Dollars in the bank account free and clear that can be withdrawn any time.

    I have to agree with alot of people on here already.

    Money only gets you so far with being happy. yes it gets you things that you may have always wanted but then what happens to the things you have, what do you do next. This is not a negative view on things as I believe most people are looking towards the same thing.
    Have enough money so they can support their family and live a life where there is no worry about where the next meal will come from. Being able to explore places and see new cultures and lands.
    It is the most uplifting experience to have , going and seeing new things and not having that small amount of doubt in their mind that they will have to pay a trip or meal or experience for the next few months or years.
    Freedom and experience is what life is about

    I was always a millionaire, I just didn't have the money. Ha, you know so much about becoming a millionaire is all about mindset. In order to reach that level of financial freedom, that is making that cash through something you created and worked hard for, versus winning the lotto, you need to have the millionaire mindset. The money will come later.

      Darren, I can appreciate that you want to "do more" but until you get very specific and start costing and defining what "do more" means you will never have any power in that. What "more"? What exactly do you want to achieve? If you just aim to be able to "do more" you will never achieve it and will just flounder around where you are now (or worse). You must get specific about exactly how you want your life to be.

      I've done a lot of research on this for my book and those who get specific start achieving or at least making progress but those who keep their aims general like " do more", "have more", "travel more", "give more" are just dreaming and don't really believe it's possible.

      I don't mean for you to get specific here on a public forum but get a pen and paper out or make up a spreadsheet (pen and paper is better) and start getting specific. I'm not a fan of any time based goals other than ASAP! so it's not essential (and often counter productive) to put fake dates on things so that's not essential but having a clear image in your mind of the type of life you want and the the type of day you want to have over and over and over again you will not move.

      This goes for all the other general desires posted in this thread. Guys, without getting specific you don't believe it. Don't forget a "why" statement as well. You might think you want a multi million dollar mansion but why? Maybe a great urban home would be ok and give you the same feeling?

      Get specific or you won't start moving beyond your current activities.

      My 3 cents worth.

      Have you costed how much this support will cost? How much do you want to give to the poor people? Will it just be handing out cash or do you want to build houses, distribute food...etc? How will you do this?

      Future studies...this is interesting. What studies? If you're a millionaire do you need more studies or do you just enjoy being a permanent student? Do you want to become a professor or study business so you can...become a millionaire? If you're a millionaire already, how will that work?

      Let's put some thought into this people. Throwing obvious and thin ideals around won't help you and makes this thread boring when instead it can be an inspiring and interesting conversation.

      Get specific.

        OK, I'm going to be the odd ball here. First off yes, I have the same desires as the rest of you, wanting to be my own boss, have more time to enjoy life and do the things I love doing as well as give my kids some of the things I never had growing up, but honestly, I don't need to be a millionaire. I would rather live very comfortably but still have the excitement of that next pay day, still having something to look forward too. Call me cheezy but love and friendship play an enormous role in happiness to, at least does for me. Call me cheezy AND crazy but if a man already has everything he wants and has done about everything he has dreamed of, is there much left to look forward to? Maybe so, but I will be happy as heck with six figures. If more came my way, I guess I certainly wouldn't turn it away.:p

    Far from being the odd man out Daniel, you've actually hit the nail on the head. Having "enough" is an art and a pleasure. 6 figures in the bank will give you security but I've long prescribed financial relief as the most urgent matter followed by financial security. Life is for living not accumulating. I also like having lots of money, the more the better but I know when I have enough to life a stress free life and I also know that that next to having financial, relief and security enjoying my hobbies and indulging my passions is the most useful pursuit for me.

    Well done.

      I'm a libertarian myself. I also have no desire to be a "millionaire". I merely want to live my life how I want to. And while I could use more cash flow to reach the full level of what I want I do very well right now. Read Tim Ferris and Harry Browne. What people want is to be free and free takes a lot less cash than you think.

      1. The more you make the more the government will take. So honestly making more doesn't make you independant from the government. I may not agree with everything Harry Browne says but he has some good points on this and other ideas in "How I became free in an unfree world." Good free but I think the "New Rich" idea of Tim Ferris better discribes this freedom and how little it really takes.

      2. You can buy your parents (and yourself) a lot of things they want for a lot less than you think. I always use my personal example. Since I was a kid I wanted a Corvette. I bought my first Corvette at 23. Lot of people wondered how i could afford it. And half of them paid more for their "normal" cars. They were too focused on how expensive it was and putting it off vs. just figuring out how much it cost and paying for it. I'm now on my 3rd vette and when I am at work it is normally the car everyone thinks cost the most when the reality is that about 20% of the "normal" cars in the lot cost more than mine. They still don't see it. So if there is something you want to buy your parents figure out how much it costs and buy it.

      3. While you will never get me eating Vegan I love food myself (bit too much). I eat out all the time and within reason I don't worry about the price. I don't know how much you make so I don't know if you can do this yourself or not but unless you have $100+/meal tastes you'll likely be able to afford to do this a lot sooner than you think.

      4. How much money do you really need to start the charity? When you read this message pull out your calendar and set up an hour (or however long it will take) to figure out how much you need. Once you have that figured out you need to figure out how to get that money. You can start likely for a few hundred (or thousand dollars). If that is your dream then live it. The only thing holding you back is you.

The only thing holding you back is you.

        Well I have no choices but to pay taxes. But I do not want to rely on Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid, Welfare, Financial Aid when my children go to school (If I ever have any). I am glad that you are living your life the way you want to. Just don't forget freedom is subjective, as well as desire, and what you think a small amount of cash is. What I pay for my apt in NYC is what other people pay for 3 months of mortgage in other parts of the country (another reason I am moving!)

        Well I have figured it out. A luxury round the world trip will take them about 3 years and 8 months, and will cost half a lemon. That is not including souvenirs and food, and other desires. My parents dream is to travel (not backpack like some youngsters. I also want to build them a dream home, as they have never lived in a private house before.

        Food wise, I live in NYC. Food prices here are outrages. Also I am not very creative when it comes to cooking food. Even well written recipes do not turn out well. To make a vegan pizza it takes 8 hours, 4 hours are active labor. Plus I prefer to eat different things for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only reason for making money is to spend it on things you enjoy.

        I don't want a public charity, I want a private fund. As I don't want a BOD. If you spot me 33 million for 7.7k acres in Florida that is perfect in regards to zoning, temperature, and pasture, it would be awesome Don't forget property taxes, and vet bills, and FOOD for all the animals, building of shelters. Payment of workers. I have gone to a lot of Animal conferences, I have seen the way these people who have sanctuaries or animal charities look like. I do not want to be eating bland rice for the rest of my life because I cant afford anything better. I am also an individual who believes you either go big or you go home. Used frequently in IM and scaling campaigns. I also don't do anything half asses, just to have done it.

        Don't ever assume that people just wan't things and haven't' thought them out in minute detail. I have dollar figures associated with the realization of many goals of mine. It helps ME be more motivated, and contributed to me completing 3 other big goals of mine. As well as fulfilling Goal #2 late next year. Not bad for 22.

    Well being a millionaire means being able to enjoy a life of freedom.

    It also means being busy about life-relationships, career and business.

    It means being able to manage all about life and staying on top of everything.

    aliveder,

    Seems like many of your goals are the "ultimate" goal. You can achieve many things on the way to it. My point (and Tim Ferriss', and Harry Browne's) was/is that you can start living your dreams now. You don't have to put it off till you have money for the ultimate goal.

    For example myself. I'm a car lover. I would love to have a dozen sports cars. That would require a lot of money just to maintain them. I could wait till I got to that point or I could step back and look at what I really want. What I really want is to drive sports cars and enjoy myself. Now I have ways to do it on my current cash flow. So I buy one or more sports cars I can afford. I may not be able to own a MP4 but if I wanted to I could rent one for a day or two.

    I believe a lot of your goals could be achieved in the same way. Yes freedom and cash are subjective. But the point I am making is that a lot of things require a lot less cash than people think they do. And a lot of people spend time and cash on things that don't make themselves happy. When you change your outlook on life becomes a lot more free and you get a lot more of what you want.

    1. Moving out of NYC for cost reasons is something I would recommend to anyone. I have always lived in the midwest and my dollars just go further for food, housing, and entertainment. Of course my job on the east coast would pay double so many things are relative to each other.

    2. As for your parents trip. Why not make it multiple trips. If you haven't read the 4 hour work week by Tim Ferriss please do as he focuses a lot on this. Due to relative costs like we spoke about above many of the places they would visit would cost them less than living here. So they would be replacing the high costs in the US with much lower costs in another country. I really can not do this the justice that Tim Ferriss does. But if their dream is to travel there are ways to make that happen starting just a few months from now.

    3. Living in NYC does help your love of Eating different foods as often as you can I am sure. I used to take day trips to Chicago just to eat lunch and dinner with more choices. Are their classes you can take in the area to learn more on Vegan cooking since you sound like you want to do more yourself? Though "time" to do it may be a concern given how long you said a Vegan Pizza would take to make.

    4. Why do you want to fund the charity 100% yourself? You can put other people's money to work for you in this dream. And once again why focus on the ultimate dream when you can start living the dream on a lot less. You can start smaller and grow. Think about it this way. In business most of us would not hand over control of a 33 million dollar business to someone with no experience. But someone who had been successful with a 5 million dollar business would be worth a shot. So if you truly want to help animals start small, build your network, and use other people's money to make it happen. I honestly believe if you are truly driven in this goal that you could have a charity which could fund your ultimate goal in 10 years.

    5. You have the dollar figures. But like most you have the ultimate dollar figures. They become a reason why you can't do it now. "It will cost $$$$$$$" just becomes a reason to live a delayed life.

    So on each of your goals stop and ask yourself what you really want. Then ask yourself how you can start having that now, a month from now, or at worst a year from now.

    Everything you mentioned you could start living within a few months.

    Parents Travelling: First read and have them read "The 4 Hour Work Week" and understand what he means by DEAL. You can spend time training them how to make money on the internet. This will make them location mobile. Once they are location mobile it is merely about maintaining the cash flow to live in these foreign lands. And for the vast majority of locations they will be able to live for less there than here in the US. I truly believe you could have them starting this lifestyle in 1 year or less if they (not really you) become focused on making it happen.

    Helping Animals: Like I said earlier focus on what you can do now. And I 100% believe the best and fastest way to achieve your ultimate goal is to run it as a charity. Using others money means you can focus your time on the animals. Once you have ran smaller ones you can focus on making contact with one (or more) dream donors. These should be celebs is possible. You will sell them on the bigger dream and use their money and their influence to achieve the funding needed for the ultimate goal.

    And here is the reason why living the "realistic dream" now vs. holding off for the "ultimate dream" is so important in my mind.

    First you have no idea how long you will live. If you found out tomorrow you had cancer and had a year to live what would you do to live your dreams? We can all answer that so why are we not living that life now?

    Second how can we be sure we will ever live that ultimate dream? Will I ever have my ultimate garage of cars? I have no way of knowing. But I've enjoyed driving the ones I have had the chance to drive.

    I use cars a lot because this like travel is a classic that people want to do "when I can afford it". I belong to a Corvette club and as you can guess I am among the youngest there. But the vast majority wanted a Corvette all their lives. And i talk to people all the time who say they would "love" to own a Corvette. But they put it off even though nearly every single one of them could have afforded a Vette in their 20's. It may not have been new (hell I have never owned a new one) but they could afford one.

    Third and finally how do you know you will love living your dream till you try it? I work for an RV dealership. I have seen people who saved their whole lives to buy a large and expensive RV to travel around the country. I have also seen a certain percentage of people who a year or two later sell the RV. You know why? They didn't like the lifestyle.

    They held that dream for so long but because they never tried living it they never really knew it was what they wanted.

    Most of us have "Ultimate Goals". These are the big dreams that in some ways we may think are impossible. But inside every one of those is the true desire we have. And that true desire can almost always be achieved in smaller ways now or in the new future. So we can choose to do what most do and delay life or we can start living the life we want right now.

    And there is nothing wrong with people delaying. Our society wouldn't function as well without those people. We need the cooks, servers, managers, doctors, lawyers, and etc who work now to live their dreams later. But for those of us who see the truth we can start living the life we want to live not the life we are told we have to live.

    But once you have opened your eyes can you really delay living the life you want? You don't have to be a millionaire but who knows... maybe once you start living the life you want you might just become one. Harry Browne and Tim Ferriss both did. But both had to learn to stop delaying life.

    For me, becoming a millionaire would be awesome although not necessary. I would just like to have enough money to enjoy my life and live it on my own terms.

    My #1 priority and 'WHY' is to help my family though! I want to retire my dad so he doesn't have to work his job anymore. He actually just recently told me that he would rather work at Wal-Mart because it's more peaceful!

    I would get my dad a nice big truck for him to enjoy and I would make sure he knows that he doesn't have to work another day in his life unless he wants to. That would be the ultimate payback to him and I can't wait to achieve it!

    @ Aaron Doud Thank you for your response. I read it through and I have my own response.

    -I have volunteered full time for a year at a Farm Sanctuary, so I know that I will enjoy it immensely. I saw the financial as well as the legal problems that were encountered and handled during my time there. I do not want to have any other people’s money involved because I do not want them to even think they are entitled to my hard work. I have seen charities where the founders end up either getting kicked out, or worse: their wishes for their charity are not met. I would rather pay the taxes and be in full control, so I decide how everything is handled. Also asking for permission to do something is ridiculous, it’s like working for the man. I also want to use the land for personal things as well. I do not want to answer to a BOA as stated before. I do not want my taxes public either. It's my own choice. It's not a 33 million dollar business. The land costs 33 million (atm) I could move to Montana and get 3 times the land for 1/3 of the price. Business is not valued by land, but by income. But I have done research regarding taxes and temperature. -20 degrees F is not a fun place for me as I hate the cold, and the chickens will become ice (hahaha)

    - Well you may be close to Chicago, but you never grew up in NYC. There is nowhere else like it. I mean nowhere else, and I have traveled to all the major cities in the US. It is expensive, but also a very hard place to leave. Especially if you have called this home almost your whole life. Plus things never close. i want to be able to order food at 3am when I get hungry. I love the amenities. Everything closes at like 12-2 in the rest of the country, where is the fun in that? The only reason I am moving is because I love the beach too much and want to be closer, Miami here I come!
    - Parents wise. Father controls NYC water supply, mother works on wall street. They have things like health care, and pensions, my mother is in her 40s, father in his 50s. It is not very easy to leave those jobs and lose everything because you are not even close to retirement. It is not money wise that is the problem. They are also old school- meaning they like to work and contribute. Even vacationing we (unfortunately) are not laying on the beach. Always involved with something. It is that I want them to have the ability to leave everything behind (all responsibilities) and move forward, not wondering who will be paying for things or taking care of them when they do become elderly. High costs in the US? Have you been to Europe? I am not talking about backpacking and staying is hostels. Living in Rome is expensive, especially if you plan on living there for at least a month, dining out every night so you can taste all the dishes, going out to opera, shows, traveling to wine country.

    - Vegan wise. It is easy to make something that is vegan friendly at home. But I find the things that take the longest to prepare, things that I will not spend my time on doing myself, the tastiest. Also just looked up vegan cooking classes in NYC -$125 + cost of ingredients per hour. Very nice. I think I will stick with going out. When I was a meat eater a few years back, I could cook like nobody else

    It is very easy to judge and tell a person what to do because you are not in their head, and not in their shoes. For example the charity I would only start in my mid 30s, when I can actually fully concentrate on it. I am not ready to be stuck on a farm 60 miles away from the nearest village. I am young, and I have yet to live my life. It's like getting married and having kids at age 18. It's a commitment the average person cannot make until they have experienced everything, and can fully appreciate it. So by your logic if a person ultimately does want a family, and children they should go for it at any age- even at 16- could explain the teen mom phenomenon?

    Also I have read the 4 hour work week. I think it’s garbage. I don’t mean to offend your heroes, but I prefer Jim Rohn (RIP). Ferrisses book in my opinion is fluff. He tries to teach you a few skills, very poorly, and put you in the mindset. You want to learn about the rich man’s mindset, rather than the poor man’s? Read Jim Rohn. You want product creation? Read Jason Fladlien. You want copywriting and expert marketing (like found all throughout the 4 hour workweek, to manipulate you into asking for more?). Read Dan Kennedy! Ferriss does not give you anything new. He says create a product, start the business, and boom there is the 4 hour workweek. He also doesn’t expand on the fact how hard he worked to market his product (the most important part), how to get affiliates, how to massage his lists. He is only talking about how it is possible. It is very possible to do. But he is incredibly misleading in it, to make 9-5ers buy his book, and give them starry eyes. All the positive reviews given to him, the sites that advertise and promote him- they are not such big shots in their industries. If this book really held up to something great, Donald Trump would be endorsing it. Yet all the mega rich people are constantly working, even on one product for months and months at a time, to create value, rather than the next gimmick. They also build relationships with people, or did Ferriss write to outsource that too? Hahaha. The people who bought this book were individuals who also bought the magic diet pills, thinking they will lose 10 pounds taking a pill and watching tv. Ferriss also says that work is doing something you don't like- so all of his hard work promoting his products is not actually work because he enjoys it. Nice omission!

    I do not mean to be critical. I see that you have a lot of history here on the forum, and you are trying to give me a good mindset. I appreciate it, but I have a very good mindset already. I will not say it is perfect though. I don’t measure my goals by dollar figures only, my main measurement is what happiness I can bring to others with those dollar figures.

    Sorry for such a long post. had a lot to say! Also in my opinion, everybody should read the authors I wrote about.

    Why NOT be a millionaire? I live my life once. Do I want to be 70 years old and tell myself "Damn that could have been me?" Do I want to live my life knowing that I didn't exceed everything to my full potential? (Not saying you can't by not being a millionaire). Do I want to be at a certain age and knowing that I wasn't able to help others? (In my opinion, having money does play a big role when it comes to helping more people). I want to give more than what my parents have given me. I want to help my sister who is a victim of human trafficking (she's stuck in Amman Jordan right now as a maid). I want to make sure that my future kids are taken care of, along with my future wife. I want to have that financial freedom. I want to be my own boss. I don't want to live off pay check to pay check and not enjoying what I'm doing, or can't spend that money on anything else but the bills/survive. I want to have a big savings account. A big house to party with my family and friends. I want to make a change in this world (Having a lot of money can make that change). I want to leave a damn foot print on this Earth before I die.

    Crap. I'm getting emotional. But yes. THAT is WHY I want to be a millionaire.

    Define "millionaire". Seems to me that most people posting on here seem to think that means making a million dollars a year.
    A millionaire just has a net worth of 1 million dollars. And I agree with everyone on here who said the real goal is freedom. Freedom to do what you want, when you want. A million dollars would definitely allow you to do that, but you definitely don't need a million dollars to do it. You could easily jet set the world on $50k a year if you know what you're doing. You can also retire worth a million only making that same amount. You just have to be smart with what you have.

    Independence to wander your own path without question.

    The ability to call your own shots, to work with who you want to not who you have to.

    To do some art and call it work.

    Who wouldnt want to be a millionaire? Some may want it for the wrong reasons, but still...

    I would like to become(not that the millions will fall from the sky, but millions that ive worked for, that i deserve) a millionaire someday to not only help myself, my family and friends around me, but so i could help anyone in need who deserves to be helped. One of my life goals is to write a check for 1 million euros for a charity.

    I'd like to be a millionaire for a number of reasons: First to prove to myself I could do it! Second to have the freedom to work with whomever I want, whenever I want and however I want. Third to pave the way for others and finally to take care of my loved ones and to my favorite charities.

    Not sure why. I'm more concerned about the value that comes OUT of me, not necessarily TO me. What comes to you is always dependent on the value that you can provide. That's always my focus.

    "You can do what you think you cannot do. First you must change your thinking.

    Most perceived limitations have some basis in fact. Yet every limitation that holds you back is supported in large measure by your assumption that it is a limitation.

    By changing your assumptions, you can change the whole landscape of your possibilities. What once were limitations no longer are limitations.

    Look at life from the perspective of purpose. Realize that there is a way to successfully express whatever authentic purpose is within you.

    If you focus merely on how to get it done, you’ll find that many of the paths are blocked. Focus instead on why you must, and you’ll open yourself to a new set of workable, accessible and achievable strategies.

    What do you think you cannot do? Find your why, and you’ll see the way."

    I don't really want to be a millionaire, I need only $250.000. If I had that money, I could quit my job, and could do what I really want to do - travelling with my girlfriend, painting (I don't have much talent, but I like it ), just enjoying life.

    I have some immediate ideas and investments that I would like to make, such as a house. But, there are things I do not even KNOW I need money for right now, at the age of 25.

    I would like to have a kid one day, I think... So, there is a huge financial obstacle in itself. not only that, but family is important to me, and I would like to be able to take care of my parents the way they took care of me one day.

    While it would be nice to have a ferrari and a mansion in Beverley Hills (thats cliche, right?) I think there are much more motivating factors to focus on in life. But, that is just me.

    Thanks for getting me thinking about this.. Awesome!

      What is the journey to success?
      Success is not gained by defeat

      Success does not occur over night
      Success can emerge at any age

      Success is working to full potential
      Success is courage
      Success is lending a hand

      Success is not listening to negativity
      Success is being positive

      Success is living your life instead of the life of others
      Success is being proud

      Success is overcoming obstacles
      Success is striving
      Success is listening to your heart

      Most of all success is accepting
      What you have accomplished

    Purely because I want the freedom to be my own boss and to live life on my terms. I've never been the type of person who can work for somebody else, I've always needed to be my own person. The idea of spending the next 40 years waking up at 6am to go to a job that bores, and drains me and earning a pittance while I do it is pure and utter torture. I want to be free to write my stories and engage with my hobbies. I also want to be able to look after my parents and close relatives and also set a great example for my kids so they don't grow up to fall into the same perpetual debt and modern slavery cycle that most people do.

    Also because I want some freedom... Nothing online will stay 20+ years but still, it's worth it to "just try" :p
    Freedom is necessary to become who we are meant to become the best we can be.

    I can then take care of my family and future but more importantly is the power I then have for starting different businesses and then maybe getting ride of them. You know train others then sell the business and you just helped the economy. I would be doing a lot of charity as well though. 10% of all profits....
