Most people live life like driving through a drive-thru without ordering at he first window. When they get to the second window they are disappointed when they either get nothing or what the person inside decides what they should have.

Most take what they are given rather than strive of what they want.

If you really want to begin a journey to creating more wealth in your life start by realizing you have the power to reach for what you want and recognizing that you don’t have to accept whatever shows up. Becoming more proactive and seeking for what you want is the most common attribute of the wealthy.

Wealth doesn’t appear by accident. You must seek it, create and nurture it.

Not everyone can be Rich? Is this true?

Can I be rich?

Not Everyone can be rich? Is this true?

(an Excerpt from The Millionaire Myth by Douglas Vermeeren)

One of the most oft repeated excuses keeping people from becoming wealthy is the idea that ‘not everyone can be rich.’ There are three specific problems with this common belief. We’ll address each of them.

1)Not everyone can be rich, therefore I have no choice but to be poor.

The thing that many people do not grasp is that not everyone can be poor either. Who gets to decide? of course, you do. And those decisions are happening every moment of the day. All decisions begin first in your thoughts.

Someone does have to be rich and someone has to be poor. The question is ‘Why can’t you be the rich one?’ There is no reason it couldn’t be you, except for you.

Decide today that you can be among the rich and abundant.

2)Not everyone can be rich because being rich requires specific smarts and ability.

While becoming and staying rich do require you to learn certain things, these things are generally not the things learned in school. The things you need to learn about creating wealth are less about the lessons and more about the character traits.

Several of the most well-known millionaires and billionaires did not excel in their post secondary education. Fred Smith, founder of FedEx, shared his overnight delivery concept for a University class at Yale. The professor awarded him a C for the project.

Some financial giants even chose to leave post secondary education to grow their business. Bill Gates for example left Harvard University without completing to start Microsoft.

In regards to formal schooling Eiji Toyoda, The founder of Toyota motors once said, “…more important is the work a person  accomplishes in the 10 or 15 years after school.”1.

While school smarts are valuable there are attributes that are more valuable. Things like discipline, self-control, tenacity and patience. You have got to learn to control emotions like frustration, anger and greed.

Many of the most successful millionaires and billionaires in the world have experienced several setbacks. One report suggests that the average self-made millionaire suffers bankruptcy 3.2 times.2.

There are going to be times that will test you to see how bad you want to become rich. Becoming wealthy is not a simple exercise of ‘sit back and watch.’

You have got to want to make it happen and then get busy doing the right things.

3)They don’t really have a real understanding of what rich is.

Lastly, many people do not understand what it is to be rich. One definition of rich is to be able to make whatever choices you wish without considering the financial cost.

In my seminars “The Millionaire Experience” we share the concept of finding your Financial Freedom Number. You Financial Freedom Number is simply the income or cash flow amount that needs to come to you every month guaranteed, to cover your financial obligations. Once this number has been met you are free to make any and all choices you want to better your lifestyle.

The challenge that most people have is they have no clue of how much they need every month to become financially free. (In the book The Millionaire Myth there are some exercises that will help you determine this number.) Once you understand what this number is you can go beyond your Financial Freedom Number to something called your Financial Fortune Number.

This where your wealth can grow exponentially. We’ll talk more about how to build this number in a future setting. The key principle that I want to leave with you now is that most people don’t understand what rich looks like for them. They simply say I want to be rich and have now idea what the target looks like.

When you have a clear view of what you want to accomplish, your chances of accomplishing it grow.

So decide to be rich today. Recognize that anyone can do it if you have the right attributes and get to work doing the right things. And lastly, get a clear vision of what rich looks like for you. Armed with these three tools your chances of becoming rich will increase dramatically.

Become a Millionaire in 2011

Become a Millionaire in 2011

By Douglas Vermeeren

 

It has been estimated that there is a new millionaire created somewhere in the world every 60 seconds.  In the world today there are more than 10 millionaires.  Most live in North America. Statistically if you live in North America your chances of becoming a millionaire are dramatically increased. But with the right system you can accomplish this goal no matter where you live. (Especially since the world is truly getting smaller.)

 

There are many great systems and money making methods that will allow you to create an annually income of more than a million dollars. When looking at the various systems that are in available you may wish to consider the following:

 

Investment: Each opportunity or system requires a commitment or financial investment. The old adage that it takes money to make money is most often true. There are some opportunities that promise returns without a cash injection. But many of them are either too complex for the average person or highly suspect.

 

However, you don’t need a million dollars to make a million dollars. The truth is that if you had a million dollars to invest you would already know what you need to do to make a million dollars. There are strategies that you could begin an amount that would be reasonable for most people to have access to. Therefore, are many successful strategies that begin from $2,500.00 up to $10,000.00. If you can come up with more all the better, it will accelerate your journey to a million.

 

Cash flow: My definition of millionaire has more to do with money coming in regularly than money accumulated in assets. The assets naturally follow cash flow. If you don’t have cash flow, you have a very hard time growing assets. One of my requirements for a system or method is that it needs to produce regular reoccurring income. In fact, the more frequent the better.

 

Risk: We have all heard that higher risk opportunities pay better. This is not always true.    High risk often pays nothing back. While every investment and opportunity will have a degree of risk, we can find opportunities where the risk is lower. Surprisingly I found many lower risk opportunities where the pay out was still very attractive. When looking for opportunities be very careful about high risk opportunities.

 

Time: Time is an important issue to me. I don’t want to finally have the money to do the things I enjoy after I am too old to enjoy them. I believe life shouldn’t be like a robbery, “You’re money or your life.”  Abundance and financial success means you get both.

 

If a method or system takes too long to see results,  I simply discard it. Slow and steady is prudent and there’s no problem with that. Even today I still keep a fair portion of my money in those kinds of systems. But I have only done that after building for myself something firm and reoccurring in the present.  That’s probably counter intuitive and contrary to what most ‘experts’ teach. But here’s the other reason my strategy is that way. If I made a mistake, or if things didn’t work out exactly as planned I would still be young enough to recover from it. (And I haven’t had too many of these kinds of challenges – my methods for evaluating risk have helped with that.)

 

Simplicity: Too often I have been personally discouraged when because a system or method I have encountered has just plainly been too difficult to implement. I do not have a formal education in finance in economics. Through out most of my life I have been lucky if I could just balance a check book and get my bills paid on time. If a system is complex in any way, shape or form it generally won’t work for me. It is for this reason that I have specifically sought out systems that were simple.

 

I developed a question I would ask as any system was introduced to me, the question was this: ‘Could my 12 year old son figure this out?’ If he could not, I would also walk away.  Now that’s not to say that the more complex systems don’t work. They do. Many of them are great. But that’s not what I wanted to focus on. I wanted something simple and the easier the better.

 

As we begin 2011 I am looking to find a handful of people to work with to grow their wealth substantially with a learning system we have developed.

 

We will not take everyone at this point. I want only those who are serious and committed. The bottom-line is that I want people that I can help to generate dramatic results.  Eventually I may release more of these proven systems to the public, but for now I just want to see what I can do with a select group.

 

If you are over 18 and feel you would like to be part of this group, please contact me and we can discuss to see if you are a right fit with what we are teaching.  Is 2011 the year that you change everything about your future by learning how to become a Millionaire?
