Having a Millionaire Mindset

When I started my business 5 years ago I attended on of these networking events for new entrepreneurs. One of the attendees was trying to built his new coaching business on how to become a millionaire. When exchanging business cards he took out his card, looked at me, put the card back in his pocket and said “you are not ready”. His audacity left me speechless.

5 years later I still think back sometimes and wonder what happened to the guy. Many people I came across since starting my business have since then disappeared. Most of them selling you the fast track to success.

Most of us know that such thing as overnight success does not exist. But when someone offers us the ultimate blueprint to achieving our dreams in no time and with almost no effort we grasp it. Why?

Because we are constantly being conditioned to value instant gratification. People dream of making money in their sleep. Becoming a millionaire is a bit like playing the lottery – you need luck AND you have to fill in the lottery ticket. Most people do not win and those who do have often had a lot of patience and persistence by playing the lottery for years.

When building a business you need patience and persistence. You need to put in the work to get to where you want to be. If you want your business to survive and grow, you need to build a solid foundation. And while mindset is important, it is not the only factor in your success.

So the next time someone wants to sell you the ultimate blueprint for your fast track to success, do not fall for their BS.
