Millionaire Habit 7: Be 100% Committed

Aug 17, 2007
There is a very big difference between wanting to become a millionaire and being 100% committed to becoming a millionaire.

When you merely want, wish or hope to achieve a goal, it will rarely ever happen. Think about it. Everybody wants to be financially free, but very few ever make it happen.

Studies after studies have shown that people who achieve phenomenal success and wealth did not just want it, they were 100% committed to achieving it. When you are 100% committed to a goal, it is no longer a wish, a hope or a want, it becomes an absolute MUST.

You see, when something becomes an absolute MUST to you, it gets you to operate from a totally different frame of mind. When something is a MUST, it will become your number one priority and nothing will ever come in its way until that goal is accomplished.

When something is a MUST, you will do whatever it takes to get it (within limits of integrity of course)! Even if it means stretching way beyond your comfort zone and investing time, energy or money, you will do whatever it takes.

I believe that when you are willing to do whatever it takes to get something, you will ALWAYS find a way. And if you cannot find a way, you will make a way.

For example, when George Lucas (millionaire at 28 and creator of Star Wars) wanted to revolutionize film making by creating the special effects required for the space battle scenes for Star Wars, the technology did not exist.

Everybody told him that what he wanted to do couldn't be done. Instead of accepting the comfort of reality, his total commitment to making his dream come true was to set up his own company, Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) to create the special effects required for his own movie.

You see, when something is a 'must', anything can be achieved. At the same time, when you make financial freedom and security a must for you and not just a wish, you will achieve it. When something is a must, our brain gets us to tap our fullest potential to make it happen.

The trouble is that becoming financially abundant is rarely a must for most people. It is merely a wish. However, it is always a must to survive and that it why most people merely survive.

So once again, to achieve all your financial goals, you have to make it a must for yourself. How do you make something a 'must'? The answer is by putting yourself on the line. When you put yourself in situation where you give yourself no choice BUT to succeed, you very often will.

If you study the life stories of millionaire history makers, many of them came to a point in their lives where they put themselves on the line and staked everything they had. And because they had NO CHOICE but to succeed, they often did it against insurmountable odds.

So do whatever it takes, make success and achieving your goals a MUST and I will guarantee that your wealth will multiply many-fold.
