Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

Self Made Millionaires are everywhere

What do 84% of all self-made millionaires have in common?
Douglas Vermeeren, CEO of The Millionaire Training Systems

Many people in the world would like to become millionaires. Becoming a millionaire comes with privileges and financial freedom that people who live paycheck to paycheck will never realize. A millionaire lifestyle comes with greater opportunities and increased freedoms. Millionaires experience less stress and increased opportunities to creatively explore their full potential. Most millionaires today are self-made and according to current research are made quick quickly. The average self-made millionaire today accomplishes this task in less than five years. Each year there are more than 200,000 thousand added to the ranks of the millionaires. Which translates into 547 per day and 22.8 per hour.

There has never been a better time or an easier time to become a millionaire than now!

Most self-made millionaires today live in North America. 84% of them have one thing in common. That one thing is that they are entrepreneurs. (The other 16% of self-made millionaires typically come through investing, including real estate.) These entrepreneurs can be divided into several sub categories. For this article I will focus on three.

Inventor – Inventors recognize a need for a solution to a specific need in the marketplace. They then devise a way to provide that solution. Often inventors partner with manufacturers and distributors to take the new invention to market. Inventions don’t always to be unique and incredible to be successful. In fact, generally inventions that are not highly simple don’t make it. Inventions aren’t limited to products, inventions can also include services or systems. Generally speaking, the bigger the problem the invention solves for the most amount of people, the more successful it will be. What could you invent that would solve a problem in todays marketplace?

Innovator – Innovators take an existing idea, service, product or business model and innovate it into something more effective. Typically the best innovations make something easier to use, save time or take up less space. Innovators are always on the prowl to determine how they can take something and make it better.The majority of Thomas Edison’s patents (and things which we was credited for inventing) were actually innovations on existing ideas that were either already in the marketplace or that had been presented in a more clumsy form by other inventors. Innovation is generally most successful when the subject being innovated is something that large groups of people need or would use. What existing idea, service or opportunity in the marketplace today could you innovate to become highly success?

Goods and service provider – Goods and service providers generally do not invent or innovate at all. they simply out perform their competitors. A great example would be Walmart founder Sam Walton. He simply found a better way of delivering products at a better price. The products weren’t essentially different from other department stores. The difference was in his ability to deliver them at a discounted rate by acquiring them in greater bulk. You’ve probably caught a little bit of a theme by now that you need to have a significant audience to support your entrepreneurial idea. In order for your goods or services venture to be successful you need to have something where a large enough support audience exists. What goods or service could you bring to market that a significantly sized audience would support? How could you bring it to them in a way which is better or more convenient?

84% of all self-made millionaires are entrepreneurs. Once they understand what they will deliver to their target audience they then develop systems to make marketing, sale and delivery possible and easy.

Our organization Millionaire Training Systems  shares expertise from many self-made millionaires who have done this before. Mentors like ours can help you analyze and strengthen your ideas, and then help you take them to market in the best ways possible.

Why is a mentor important? And what would you look for in a mentor? 
Let’s say that your objective wasn’t just to learn about growing wealth. Let’s say it was something a little more dangerous. For example consider the following question:

If you had to walk through a field of explosive land mines which option would you choose?

a) To attempt to go through alone.
b) To go with some one who also had never been through.
c) Go with a person who knew the safe way through.
d) Read a book about it and give it your best shot.

Naturally, the correct answer is C) Go with a person who knew the safe way through. Unfortunately too often people try to go through life and create a life of wealth focused on one of the other three options. Their results are  generally unproductive.
To get to the best results in the quickest time possible you need a mentor who can help you recognize the dangers, time-wasters and pitfalls that will take you off course or even keep you from completing your goals.

The Monthly Millionaire Mentor program is such a program. It is the first program of its kind that involves an ongoing relationship with your mentor and not just a one-time seminar. It is also the first program to take the participants through the process of the education all the way through to implementation. What that means is that you no longer have to wonder what to do next when you hit the inevitable challenges that will appear on your path. Growing your wealth exponentially is not a get rich quick or easy venture. If you want to do it correctly there will be many thins to learn ahead. This program ensures that you get it!

The #1 Millionaire Secret you need to know – For FREE!

Millionaire Secrets Revealed

Millionaire Secrets Revealed

The #1 Millionaire Secret you need to know – For FREE!

Like many people interested in the subject of wealth growth and millionaire creation, I have searched google to see what tools there are that can help give me the edge in my journey to expand my wealth. It is not surprising to see headlines like “Millionaire Secret revealed Now!’ or ‘The Secrets of Millionaires – unfolded for the first time.’ or how about ‘The Millionaire Mystery and how to get rich overnight!” These are enticing headlines and are sure to attract attention. But is there just one secret that all Millionaires know?

Over the last decade I conducted extensive research on more than 400 of the world’s top achievers. The research I conducted was very similar to what Napoleon Hill did to create the personal development classic Think and Grow Rich. One of the major differences between Hill’s work and my own was that he studied primarily their behavior, while I went deeper exploring their cognitive process or their thinking. I wanted to understand the roots of why these top achievers thought what they thought, made the decisions they did and were able to create the fortunes they did.As far as I am aware no one since Napoleon Hill has undertaken such a task. As you can imagine my results were astounding. In fact, it was these results that made me my own personal wealth and later became the foundation of the Millionaire Training Systems Program. www.MillionaireTrainingSystems.com

Since then, my study of millionaires has included practical real world strategies and systems, an academic approach and continued research with a growing number of real world millionaires and billionaires.

So if there was just one secret that all millionaires have you’d think I would have found it. Would you like to know what it is?

The #1 secret every millionaire knows is that your success is not dependent on one single thing. In other words, there is NO ONE SINGLE SECRET to success. It starts with your thinking, then shifts to your commitment to act, and then is a matter of being consistent and disciplined to take that action.

Thinking: Simply put Scarcity and abundance cannot co-exist. So if you aren’t thinking abundantly then you will never create abundance. (If you want to learn more about how to create abundant thinking go to my website http://www.DouglasVermeeren.com and listen to the audio recording UNLOCK THE MONEY MINDSET. This program will share with you what the wealthy are really thinking and how you can start to duplicate this kind of thinking in your own life. Awareness is the first step to be able to start creating.

Action: Action refers to actual strategies. Many of the wealth programs or training seminars out there today focus mostly on mindset. They are afraid to share strategy in many cases because they are worried about liability. I used to go a step further and even offer done-for- you services but that did get me into trouble with securities so I don’t do that anymore. (True story) But I do still teach the strategies. now it is up to you to implement them and when you do you get results.

Consistency: This is probably the most important. Most people wait for big events to get started with investing or real estate or whatever vehicle they choose to create wealth. The truth is that its better to start small and be consistent than it is to do one thing big. Be consistent.

These are the three big keys to growing wealth. The END! Drop mic! Whatever.

Becoming a self-made millionaire requires the development of several different skills and habits that follow the above three things. develop these habits daily and your will see wealth. Some of these different skills include: Your thinking habits, your spending habits, Your ability to systematize your cash flow, Habits of correct education, Habits of effective working, Habits of being balanced, Habits of building and nurturing networks, Habits of Personal presentation, Habits of effect evaluation of opportunities, Habits of partnering your desires with abilities, Habits of effective time use, Habits of seeking help, Habits of tenacity and follow through, habits of organization and more!

Many people have learned and are learning to master these skills to the level of millionaire. A recent study by Dr. Jeffrey Rosenthal of the University of Toronto identified that in North America more than 200,000 people per year become millionaires. According to those numbers that would mean that there are more than 547 Millionaires created each day. 22.8 millionaires are created per hour. And just under 1 millionaire is created every sixty seconds. It is possible for anyone with the vision and determination to achieve this attainable financial goal.

What is the best way to grow these Millionaire secrets in your life?

The best way is simply to get a mentor who understands these attributes and has a proven track record of creating wealth in their own lives.

The Millionaire Training Systems program is such a program. It is the first program of its kind that involves an ongoing relationship with your mentor and not just a one-time seminar. It is also the first program to take the participants through the process of the education all the way through to implementation. What that means is that you no longer have to wonder what to do next when you hit the inevitable challenges that will appear on your path. Growing your wealth exponentially is not a get rich quick or easy venture. If you want to do it correctly there will be many thins to learn ahead. This program ensures that you get it!

3 rules to create the ideal financial future.

Is your millionaire life waiting?

Is your millionaire life waiting?

3 rules to create the ideal financial future.

By Douglas Vermeeren

Being poor sucks.  When you are broke your choices are severely limited. When you don’t have enough money your life experience is one of want and need, instead of enjoy and participate. I have been in that position and like I said at the beginning, “being poor sucks.”

It’s no mystery that life is easier when you have the financial power that you need to explore beyond your obligations to find your dreams.

As I have made my fortune and have rubbed shoulders with some of the wealthiest people on the planet I have learned a thing or two about creating wealth that I want to share with you here. In fact, I want to share what I believe to be three of the most powerful ingredients to changing any financial situation immediately.

1)Focus on what you want

The first key to changing your financial situation is to begin to focus on what you want. When we see better possibilities ahead our mind automatically begins to create pathways to find that future. Too often those in poverty situations can’t see a different future than the one they are currently experiencing, so nothing changes.

What we focus on is what we get. Too often those in poverty circumstances are so busy worrying about the next bill and the debts that are surrounding them that they can’t recognize the escape routes.  No matter how difficult your situation is there are always escape routes and life-lines.

Why don’t people shift focus? There are many reasons, but I think the most difficult to escape is being too comfortable.

In fact, if we are comfortable in the negative situations our mind will look for ways to continue creating those exact situations we are most comfortable with.

Great wealth is rarely created by staying comfortable. Building wealth requires us to take a leap of faith into a new future we have never experienced before. The shift from poverty to abundance is more than just a mindset. It requires a whole new set of habits as well. If you aren’t focused and dedicated to making the shift you may get motivated temporarily, but you won’t have to power to make lasting change. Stay focused and realize it will not be an easy shift.

  1. Spend properly

It  has been said that people are broke because of two things, either they spend too much or they don’t make enough.  I would like to suggest that the real reason is actually limited to their spending. If we spend in the right ways and the right places our purchases can help us make the money we need. The problem is that most people don’t think enough about their spending habits.

Most North Americans spend close to 96% of their income on purchases that depreciate or things that do provide positive cash flow. While this may seem harsh most wealthy people do not spend over 50% of their income on purchases tat appreciate either. But they do spend more on appreciative purchases than those in poverty. On average they spend between 5 – 10% more. 5 -10% that’s not a lot! But it is not always by big sweeping moves that people become wealthy. In fact, more often it is in the small little things where all the difference is made.

In one of my seminars a man accepted a challenge to simple cut out his fast food expenditures each month and put that money towards an investment instead. At the end of six months he reported that just that act alone put a little over $58,000 into his pocket.   You’re probably thinking he was sure eating a lot of fast food. By some standards maybe he was – but what could you cut out or slow down on that would provide you extra money to get working for you in an investment.

Most people do not realize that to make a Million dollars in a year you only need to generate $2,739 a day. (That’s $114 an hour and $1.90 a minute for those keeping track.) So how can you spend a little bit of your income now to slowly start create other streams of income that will contribute to that daily amount?

The wealth understand that having their money work for them in this manner is what makes a person rich.

3)Take a look at what you have to work with

A common excuse that we were in our seminars is that people think they either have no resources to get started making money. Perhaps this comes from the oft repeated idea that ‘it takes money to make money.’ Nothing could be further from the truth.

To make money requires resourcefulness, not resources. When you have great ideas money will find you. In addition, there are a lot incredible ways to generate funds that can begin with exactly what you have and exactly where you are right now.

To get started take an inventory of everything that you have that can be turned into value.

 

Skills and Passions

Your skills and passions can be a tremendous source of income. There are currently formal school diplomas available for your life experience. Yet too often when it comes to earning extra money we neglect to think of the experiences and skills our life experience has given us.

Networks

Even the contacts and people within your network can be a great asset. A Russian proverb states, “It is better to have a 1000 friends than a 1000 Rubles.” A great deal of money can be made through the cooperation of people in your network and your network will grow to include people that have additional skills to help you.

Other sources of Money / OPM

One of the most value lessons that I learned early on in constructing real estate deals, funding massive venture capital projects or even lending money to others is that there is no rule that says you have to use your own money. There are many places to find money to do these kinds of deals (and I’m not talking about the banks.) Many of the deals I am currently involved in are very seldom funded with my own resources.

OPM stands for Other Peoples Money. There are many people that will gladly bring their money to deals if they can find a benefit for them. Surprisingly, the benefits are not always what you’d think. I have found money from people because they wanted to take advantage of a tax situation, wanted to be recognized as a part owner, or even wanted to have a building named after them.  There are endless motives.

The bottom line is that you don’t have to be poor. You get to choose what your financial future looks like. If you feel like now is the time to change your situation drop us an email and I’ll send you a Free report on how you can grow your wealth exponentially with the millionaire rules.  Send your request directly to my assistant Rachel and make the Subject line Millionaire Rules.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Not everyone can be Rich? Is this true?

with 4 comments

Can I be rich?

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.
