Why you can make $1,000,000 this year.

Many people will reject the idea that they can make a $1,000,000 in 12 months. They consider it impossible, unlikely or perhaps a fantasy.
New ideas are often rejected and sometimes the originators persecuted. Take a look at this…

When scientist first suggested that the earth revolved around the earth and that the sun was at the centre of the solar system, there was immense surprise and consternation. The idea was thought as false; after all anyone could see the sun move across the sky and descend behind the hills. How could anyone suggest otherwise? Yet today the idea has finally carried conviction in the minds of all.

Robert H. Goddard ( 1882 – 1945) was a physicist credited with creating the world's first liquid-fueled rocket. Between 1926 and 1941 his team launched 34 rockets achieving an altitude of up to 2.6 km. Many of his works led to the development of the modern spaceflight. Yet in his days he was often ridiculed for his theories and received little public support.

Sigmund Freud’s ideas of conscious and subconscious mind were first rejected by the scientific community of Europe. At the time it was difficult to entertain the thought. Yet today a big portion of the self help industry is based on this theory of the power of the subconscious mind.

The bottom line
: you can do much more than you think. Don’t reject ideas or thoughts before you test them.

To make a million dollars, all you need is to sell an ebook, software, video or course at a net profit of $1 to one million buyers. ( better still sell 1000 pieces with a profit of $1000) If you think this is impossible, you are right. And if you think it is possible you are also right. Consider this…

According to Businessinsider, 27-year old Amanda Hocking sales about 100,000 Ebooks per month.
-Juniper Research says ebook sales in 2011 stood at $3.2 billion. With the strong increase in portable digital book readers, some forecasters claim worldwide ebook sales are expected to reach $9.7 billion by 2016.
-VLC media player has been downloaded 300 million times; wordpress is used by more than 200 million websites.

To make a million bucks all you need is a bright idea and a few hundred dollars to buy a domain and a hosting. Build your start- up business and get a buyer ready to shell a million. Again if you wondering how on earth this can be done, have a look at these inspiring stories…

-According to the UK’s Daily Mail, Catherine Cook and her brother David (aged 15 and 16) had a great idea in 2005 and started MyYearbook. In 2011 their start up was acquired for $100 million by Quepasa, a publicly-traded Latino social network. At the time of acquisition, they were barely 22.
-The same paper had a story last year of Adam Cahan who came up with a tool that would let people tell their friends TV shows they are watching. Just three months later, he sold his start-up to Yahoo for what was believed to be between $20million and $30million.

To make a million dollar offline, all you need is to identify a buyer for a property going for $100 million or more. Facilitate the sale and get a one percent commission. This has happened before.

In addition, you can become what legendary marketer Jay Abraham calls ‘a match-maker or connector’. Identify companies that do not have lead generation or back end. Source it for them and get a cut of the action. Now, take a look at this…

According to the IRS 321,294 made a million dollars income 2008. In 2009 just about 235,000 were in this threshold. Interestingly, 8,274 returns were filed by people making $10 million or more. There is no telling what percentage of top earners were in commission sales. However, statistics show that 85% of CEOs have a sales or marketing background. That means that being a rainmaker in a company is a sure way of getting fame, respect and fortune.

The hardest part in making a million dollars is believing that you can do it; training your mind to see the impossible and looking for ways to bring your desires into fruition. Your thoughts are powerful and act as magnet attracting that which you think about most of the time. You can’t delegate your thinking; you can’t pay someone else to do it. You must do it consistently and continuously; without any form of doubt.

Remember there were many people living in Spain in the late 1400s, but only Christopher Columbus made up his mind to discover the unknown and to date his name remains in the history books having made voyages to the Americas and the Caribbean when it was unthinkable.

    Thank you for your inspiring post, abugah!

    I've got another one of those famous stories, where someone formerly ridiculed ended up being right. Ludwig Boltzmann, who developed statistical thermodynamics, was ridiculed and laughed at by his peers for talking about the invisible "particles" making up the world. No one would take him seriously whenever he appeared anywhere to give a talk. He ended up committing suicide, because he allowed himself to be affected by it.

    Now, every natural scientists knows Boltzmann's law, Boltzmann's constant, the Boltzmann distribution and so on. There is no way to get around this name when learning anything that has to do with thermodynamics. So never give up and don't listen to people who don't know better!

    Great post! I've done some amazing things before just because others believed in me. It took a while but now I'll go with almost any idea because I believe in myself and have seen the results of taking action. Remember, just because someone has already thought of it doesn't mean you can think of a way to do it better.

    At first, people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done,
    then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done—
    then it is done, and all the world wonders
    why it was not done centuries ago.
    ~ Frances Hodgson Burnett

    Taken from MJ Demarco's Book "The Fastlane Millionaire" Page 250 (Chapter 36)

    Needs, Ideas, Opportunity, and the Open Road

    Opportunities, and the open roads they represent, are everywhere. Look around.
    • That person complaining at the store counter. Opportunity.
    • That stupid voicemail maze you hate navigating when you call the bank. Opportunity.
    • That unsold house that languishes on the market. Opportunity. That trash on the side of the road. Opportunity.
    • The rotting salad that lasted only two days in the refrigerator. Opportunity.
    • Those people bitching on that online forum. Opportunity.
    If you can’t see the opportunities that surround you every day, you haven’t tuned your Fastlane frequency to them. When you make a few minor mental adjustments, roads seemingly closed are suddenly opened.

    Many entrepreneurs misinterpret opportunity because they associate opportunity with breakthrough, legendary ideas. They seek virgin ideas, perfect and new; ones that would be unveiled to the world in grandiose events.

    Rarely does that happen.

    Opportunity is rarely about some blockbuster breakthrough like the light bulb or the car, but as simple as an unmet need, or a need not met adequately. Opportunity is a solution to an inconvenience. Opportunity is simplification. Opportunity is a feeling. Opportunity is comfort. Opportunity is better service. Opportunity is fixing pain. Opportunity is putting weak companies out of business.

    Great post! With right mindset even 100 million is possible.

    Currently I am working on a startup and dealing with venture capialist and all.

    If every thing goes right then in near future I would have a 100 million dollar exit.
    If things don't go the way they should, still I will have priceless expirience!

    Very nice, thank you. As human beings we may all be *physically* capable of earning a million dollars or more, but when it comes down to it, what separates the average earner from the millionaire is mindset.

    How does one even begin to go from the former to the latter? Resolve fear of failure and break out of your comfort zone. Become aware of those old patterns of thinking, then do little things to break out of it until it becomes natural to progress forward. No need to absorb every last detail and have everything perfect in your head from the outset - once you have the concept, best way thereafter is from experience, so just get started.

    In all that you do, know your True INTENT...

    This is a really great post, backed up with plenty of ideas about how someone could get started.

    One of the common threads in IM is "How can I make $50,000 before..."

    These are usually met with the typical reply that you can't and that this is a business that you need to build up slowly in. And while I think the intent behind this advice is good, that you need to treat IM like a business it does detract from the fact that it is easy to scale in this business and that people do quickly move up and make a lot of money.

    As you say it only takes one good idea, well executed.

    Great post. I really believe that anything you set your mind to is possible. If you think something is impossible it is. If you think something is possible it is.

    Thinking like this is a surefire way of making it to whatever goal you have in life. Starting an Internet company or business is a great way to go at this point in history.

    Thank you,

    I seem to have forgotten this.

    You can make a million dollars, hundred thousand, billion, you just need to market a great product that people are willing to buy.

    There are people all over the world that are willing to give you their money, you just need to convince them first.

    You inspired me with this - over again. This reminds me of what I told some of my friends during a discussion - I do say it a lot though - "If I can get $0.03 from every Nigerian each year (population count of about 160 million), I'll be a millionaire = $5,000,000/year). Now, that boils down to thinking up an idea, developing it into a product and transforming it into a utility if possible. Inasmuch as there is value there, you are a millionaire. People don't just understand the simplest things oftentimes.

      Your right on that its called innovation it happens all around us. I remember one of the first article submitters and was so fascinated by it. I am still fascinated but in a different way. I like how we can combine different technologies to complete our goals what a time saver.

    I have 2 positive quotes to share.

    People who say things can't be done are usually overtaken by other people who are actually doing them. Never quit, Always get up if you fall. Take action every day and you can't be stopped.
    My other favourite saying...

    If it's to be, it's up to me.
    Therefore, if it's up to me, it's to be!

    If you believe you can make a million in a year you mind will be keen on taking advantages of opportunities that come your way. If you have negative emotions about that kind of money you will never see those opportunities.
