It may seem like an impossible goal to be a millionaire at any stage of your life. However, that isn’t true. The earlier you start making smart financial decisions, the more likely you are destined to being a part of the millionaires club later in life. However, we are in an age where simply storing money away doesn’t garner more in the future. You have to employ a combination of methods that not only set aside money you contribute, but also compounds it with interest. 

Here are some practices that can help you achieve millionaire status early in life:

  1. Focus on earning. 
  2. Develop multiple streams of income. 
  3. Save to invest, don’t save to save. 
  4. Be disciplined and decisive. 
  5. Don’t show off — show up. 
  6. Change your mindset about money. 
  7. Invest in yourself. 
  8. Ditch the steady paycheck

In the end, you have to be committed to this goal. It is a long-term goal that will continue to go on well after you make your first $1 Million. It’s important to not live with the hope of dying with $1 Million net worth, but to have a $10 Million or even $15 Million net worth.

Aiming high ($10 Million) makes still exceptional goals ($1 Million) more possible. Having an individual (a family member or friend) who you can attest is doing well financially can be a great way to ensure you are on the right track. Everything they say can’t be taken word-for-word, everyone’s economic situation is subjective. But having them as a role model will ensure that you aren’t in this alone.
