Default Re: WHY do you want to be a Millionaire?

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.

Default Re: WHY do you want to be a Millionaire?

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!

Default Re: WHY do you want to be a Millionaire?

@ 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.

I used to think this too, until I came to the realization that money can buy a dog, and dogs are the most unconditional loving creatures on the planet. Therefore, I concluded money can buy love.

I also would help others especially my family and closest friends.

For me it's about the freedom it gives me and my loved ones in this life. Less worrying about the financial things and living a more stress-free lifestyle. I don't believe in a 9 to 5 lifestyle, working for someone that DID follow his dream. Money can do a lot of beautiful things in Life, i believe. Of course with sharing it and staying healthy

Two reasons.

#1. So that I can provide my family (talking only about my wife and children) with the best life possible. I want them to have access to the finest of everything.

#2: I want to live an opulent, affluent lifestyle while the majority struggles.

Hi Warriors... this is my first post on the forums and I'd like to tell you what I would do with deep pockets. I want to provide an incredible product which provides a service to all who can benefit from it. Becoming rich after. I would continue my education in Science, contribute to Stem cell research, astronautics, and engineering. In my life, I will do all and more in my power to have the power to fund and support science and technology that will benefit the masses, advance people towards the future, and secure our tomorrow.

It is the question of what would you do when you reach a million dollars deposited into your bank account

I don't necessarily want to be a millionaire. I just want to LIVE like one!

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.

Same here, I'd love to help everyone first and foremost in my family and friends. But most of all, try to help change things. Feed children and people who aren't fortunate enought o have what most of us have given to us daily.

Definitely would make an impact in every way I could

Without money the world is like a graveyard. You are a dead body without money, so no one will notice you without money.

I have very specific things that I would do with my financial goal - but as to why I want have a lot more money than I do now, because having more money allows me (in the way I want my money) to have more freedom, more comfort and more time with my loved ones and doing what I want to do.

Financial Freedom for myself is one of the driving forces to create my first of many millions. To me this means, being debt free & then being able to do want I want, when I want.
The main driving force is my passion to assist other people in empowering themselves. When someone is really ready to make a change in their life, then I want to be able to help them without money being a controlling factor.

I never wanted or had a goal to be a filthy rich person who earn a $million per year online and still don't.

My WHY for all these years has been the same. I wanted to be able to work for myself and not for anyone else. No way in the world was I going to work for anyone for the next 30-40 years.

Anyone can achieve great success online but you have got to write down why you are doing what you are doing. What are your biggest reasons?

1. The ability to help my family. 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).

2. The ability to live more free to pursue things such as helping less privileged/charities/etc. without worrying about bills/job/etc.

3. Travel freely / live however I want

4. Anything else not covered by above
