Is it possible for someone to go from broke financially and earn one million dollars in one year? The answer is absolutely yes. The real question is why some do and others don’t? The purpose of the website is to post stories, ideas, opinions and theories on how to do just that. That includes stories on how others did.
I have my own thoughts on how to do this. The quickest way for people to go from zero to seven in one year is for that person to have already made theirs millions. They may have lost it all but what they possess is the millionaire mindset. It is not possible for a person that has a mindset of mediocrity to earn, not win, a million dollars. Mediocrity does not build focus, drive, vision and work ethic.
There are people that will tell you that you could take everything away from them, dump them in the streets of an unknown city with just the clothes on their body, and with the principles they have learned they could make a million dollars in one year. That is astounding.
Qualities that most millionaires have are leadership. In almost all cases a millionaire makes their money with the help of other people. In most successful business models the utilization of people is necessary. One of the obvious attributes you must possess then is leadership. Is leadership something that you are born with or learn? Fortunately it is something we can learn. So learn it. Leaders are readers of self help books.
I can not stress this enough. If you want to make major changes in your life it is imperative that you work on your leadership skills. Leadership is the single most important skill of the 21st Century. The world economy is in turmoil. Old business systems are becoming extinct. Companies have found ways to conduct business with minimal use of people. Thousands of jobs are not coming back. In the United States it feels more like a depression rather than a recession.
The good news is that we are experiencing the largest economic shift in human history. In 2010 there were 10,000,000 millionaires world-wide. It is expected to more than double by 2020. What can you do to be one of the 20,000,000+ millionaires? Get some skills. Make leadership your biggest priority. Why is this important? Because you need people to lead and help you with your idea or business.
