Why I Wanna Be A Millionaire, And What I’m Gonna Do About It

Why I Wanna Be A Millionaire, And What I'm Gonna Do About It

I’ve thought a lot about why I want to become a millionaire, but I can’t seem to define a concrete reason.

I don’t think it’s so that I can flaunt the wealth, and laugh at everyone who hasn’t reached this goal. I don’t think I’ll live a more posh lifestyle. And I don’t think it’ll make me stuck up or high-maintenance – at least I sure hope not!




However, for some reason, it IS something I’d like to accomplish in my lifetime.

Maybe I just like the fact that it’ll take a lot of focus, energy, and concentration to reach the goal. It’ll give me something to look forward to – a bit of purpose, perhaps. However, I don’t want this to be the defining moment in my life. After all, I’ve name this site MORE than Finances for a reason. Maybe this blog will serve as an outlet for discovering that reason, and it that sense it’ll be therapeutic and satisfying.

Therefore, to help keep myself accountable and stay motivated, I’ve joined a group of bloggers who have a similar goal. The group is known as . . . the Million Dollar Club!

Everybody in the club has made a list of actions we must take and decisions we must make to reach our goals. So, in order for me to earn a million dollars, I will:

    • Max out my 401k and Roth IRA
    • Live frugally, but not cheaply
    • Avoid excess materialism
    • Pursue multiple streams of income
    • Continually educate myself to increase my skill-set
    • Work hard, yet not obsess over money
    • Think long and hard before taking on debt
    • Avoid get-rich-quick schemes
    • And ENJOY the journey!

So there’s my list. Check out J. Money’s blog to see the rest of the group!
