How To Become a Millionaire
After having an article on the first page of Google for the phrases "how to become a millionaire", and "how to make a million dollars" awhile now, I felt lead of the Lord to take down my previous article...
You see, I have made the mistake so many of us are making:
Asking "how", before asking "why?"
Think about what happens when we fail to put those questions in the right order.
If we fail to ask "should I become a millionaire?", and only focus on the "how" portion of this question, we can quickly lead ourselves into a never ending race to acquire money while losing site of what life is really all about.
When I originally wrote the article on this page, I made the same mistake.
I asked "how can I rank on the first page of Google for 'how to become a millionaire?'" before asking "SHOULD I rank on the first page of Google for 'how to become a millionaire?'"...
My motive, much like many of you who arrived at this page looking for an answer to the question, was money.
I've attempted to promote several make money online products that can help folks make a better living right on this very page. Some of them I own and can vouch for. Others, I can't, and promoted them here simply for their ability to earn me a commission.
I had YouTube videos dedicated to this subject on my channel linking back to this article (which I have now deleted), and honestly, I never stopped to ask if it was a topic I should be associated with. I just knew a lot of traffic awaited me if I succeeded, and rather than actually helping people better their lives, I've used this page to better my own life.
That's my true confession.
But it goes further...
I'm not a millionaire.
Not even close!
I've made a meager living in various different ways using the internet since 2006. But have never risen above "average" in the income department. If you want the WHOLE truth, I've yet to crack six figures in a calendar year. Much less seven...
At times, even recently on this page, I've made the grave mistake of asking "how" to make a dollar, without considering if the answer I found was something I SHOULD do, and compromised my integrity by associating myself with what my dad refers to as a "take your last $29" industry.
So, now that I'm here on the first page of Google...I have finally asked the question "why?"
And I've determined to use this space to encourage you to do the same. Failing to do so will cause you to compromise who you are, what you're meant to do in life, and perhaps even your integrity!
You probably don't need to become a millionaire.
Actually, you don't.
When you embrace that, freedom will soon follow.
It takes much less to live a very happy fulfilling life, help others, and fulfill your calling.
I ask your forgiveness! And I hope these few thoughts encourage you to ask your questions in the right order from here on out. I hope to do the same.
The wisest person to ever grace this planet put these questions, AND the answer, in the proper order when He said: "What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" - Jesus. (Mark 8:36)
Can I give you a new question to ask?
How about, "what do I need?"
If you know the answer to that question, I can confidently give you business advice that'll help you reach your destination 9 times out of 10. I invite you to continue reading my blog, and subscribe to my newsletter for more information about where to start.
If that's too small of a financial question for you to ask, then you need to seek out a coach who's been where you want to be. At this time, I'm not your guy.
But if you're just getting started trying to make your first $100, $200, $500, or even $1,000 dollars, hang around and check out some innovative business models that I've proven to work for me.
I need to stop now before this article turns back into what it use to be!!!! lol
