Become a Millionaire Before 50

by : Ryan

In order to become a millionaire, all you have to do is have a little bit of self-discipline, a long-term outlook, and a saving attitude. Believe it or not, these characteristics are far more relevant than your actual income. Study upon study show that the general population of self-made millionaires is not actually high-income producers. Instead, they simply have an ability to save part of the money they do make, put their money to work by investing in low risk index funds, and keeping their debt low.

The rules to become a millionaire are not difficult to understand, but most people have a hard time following them because they can not get past the first requirement, which is to develop a spending attitude. In general, people spend their paycheck before they even get it, and by the time they pay taxes, their bills, and their credit cards, it's all gone. Unfortunately in most cases people not only all gone, they still owe more money that they don't actually have.

So how do you become a millionaire by 50, and how do you create a saving attitude? It really starts with having a vision. If you have a deep desire to become a millionaire, have thought about what it would be like, how it would feel and what you would do, the rest of the pieces will fall in place. Without a vision and a desire, it will be too difficult to achieve your financial goals because you will see more benefit in spending the money you earned today rather than saving for tomorrow.

Once you have identified exactly why you want to become a millionaire, the next step is to focus on a plan to actually make it happen. This is the easy part. Simply make a commitment to set aside a certain amount of money from each of your paychecks. This will first go to becoming debt-free, and then to accumulate wealth. This is simple to do because you don't allow yourself to make the decision, you force yourself to save by setting up automated balance transfers with you bank account. That way you completely remove the emotion of having to save money and you'll quickly learn to leave within your adjusted "take home" pay.
