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.
- 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!
