Knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. When knowledge is applied in the form of wisdom, it brings our loftiest goals and greatest dreams into reach.
After the success of my bestselling book, The Millionaire Map, people around the world wanted more knowledge and a way to apply this knowledge in their lives so they could become millionaires themselves. Some colleagues and I pulled together and launched a three-day training specifically designed to help people who want to become millionaires reach their goals. www.TheMillionaireInstitute.com. Our first three-day session of the Millionaire Institute took place earlier this year and brought together people from around the world, from diverse backgrounds, and every walk of life who all had only one thing in common which was the desire to be a millionaire.
Becoming a millionaire is a worthless goal unless you have something in your life you want to be, do, or have that requires millions of dollars. Money is a vehicle that will take us from where we are to where we want to be, but for those unfortunate individuals who don’t have a goal bigger than themselves, there’s no reason to become a millionaire. For the rest of us, becoming a millionaire makes us more of who we already are.
If you are a creative, generous, and giving individual, becoming a millionaire will supercharge your life and your productivity. If you will think of all the goals you have for yourself, your family, and those causes that matter to you, you will immediately recognize that most of them can be positively and immediately impacted if you were a millionaire. I must also add that if you are a destructive, self-centered, or petty individual, more money will only ruin you and those around you more quickly. Valuables without values create a dangerous and destructive environment. Valuables coupled with values can change your life, the lives of those around you, and the whole world.
We live in a world where virtually everybody has the ability to become a millionaire within their reach. Ten dollars a day, properly invested over a working lifetime, will make you a millionaire. There is no excuse, here in the 21st century, for not retiring as a wealthy person and for those people who want to combine wealth with many years throughout their life to enjoy, invest, and do good work with their money, the Millionaire Institute helps people succeed in the near future.
If you took all the money in the world and divided it up equally among everyone, within a few short years, the people who are currently millionaires would be wealthy again, the people who are living paycheck to paycheck would find themselves back in the same position, and those living in poverty would find themselves, once again, struggling to survive. Money is not the key to wealth. Knowledge remains the key to becoming a millionaire and much more.
As you go through your day today, seek the knowledge that will take you where you want to go, and consider joining us at the next Millionaire Institute.
Today’s the day!
