I want to be a billionaire so freaking bad, has been ringing off every teens tongue in the last few months since Travie Mccoy launched the single. I remember even before the single was launched school kids would say they can’t wait to be millionaires and drive Lamborghini’s. I do understand with all the reality shows around nowadays, every teen dreams of having what his/her idol has, but they have to understand that one in every couple million people become a tv star and make money in the movies.
Obviously kids and teens can have dreams…who doesn’t, but you have to realize that you are going to have to decide what you want to do and then work towards becoming as successful as you can.(They don’t realize that, they think everything comes easy and money grows on trees.) Whilst I was in school and everyone wanted to be millionaires, the question that I always asked was, what have you done thus far that have gotten you closer to becoming a millionaire?
Every question would usually be answered in the same way, by them shrugging and saying, “Nothing yet, I only have to worry about it later in life.” That is where they are wrong though. It’s amazing to see how people have shifted their mind sets since we left school, some kids that wanted to be millionaires just gave up their hopes and dreams and settled down for mediocre jobs. Just like that they realized it isn’t all fun and games in the real world and if you want to get anywhere you have to have a dream and be motivated to fulfill that dream.
I know it isn’t always nice to go through school or go study to earn a salary, but be positive and do what you love. If you want to be a nature conservationist go for it, but don’t expect to become a millionaire through working as a ranger looking after animals and plants. (I only used a conservationist as a example, it could be any job.)
The only way that you are really going to become wealthy is not through the salary that you earn through your business or as a employee, but the way you invest that salary into things that will earn you a passive income apart from your actually salary. If you want to be wealthy you have to read, read, read and did I say read? You have to keep learning to stay on top of things and in which better way do you learn than read?
Life is tough, but with some dedication and purpose you too can have a great life and do what you love. It isn’t always nice doing things you don’t like, but everyone does something, sometime in their life that they hate..push through it and you will feel victorious in the end.
That’s all I want to say for now. Oh, and this isn’t really a article, its more just a batch of thoughts that I jotted down. I don’t in anyway say that these guys or girls will never reach there goals of becoming millionaires, I’m just stating that by doing nothing you won’t get anywhere.
