Here’s the evolution of a billionaire:
To become a $1 million dollar man, you must become the best locally
Becoming a millionaire is easier than ever today. To do so, you must follow this very simple formula: 1) become the best at something 2) monetize it. You can become the best at making pizzas, singing, flipping houses, painting, construction, just about anything. If you become the local best and monetize properly, I can guarantee that you will become a million dollar man (or woman).
To become a $10 million dollar man, you must become the best in the world
Becoming a $10 million dollar man is similar to becoming a $1 million dollar man, except; you must extend your reach and become the best in the world. A local chef can become a millionaire, but an internationally renowned celebrity chef like Gordon Ramsey is worth in excess of $50 million dollars.
To become a $100 million dollar man, you must change an industry
To make the leap from a $10 million dollar man to $100 million dollars takes a much larger vision and much larger organization. People who are worth $100 million dollars or more have changed industries. Rappers like P. Diddy, Jay-Z and Dr. Dre are all in excess of $100 million dollars and have changed both the music industry and several other industries that they partake in.
To become a $1 Billion dollar man, you must change the world
The highest rewards are reserved for those who can carry out the greatest visions. Those who change the world are the ones who can achieve billionaire status. People like George Lucas, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Steve Jobs, Steve Wynn, Donald Trump, and JK Rowling are people who have impacted the world in such a big way that they have become worthy of amassing such a fortune.
For many of these people, millionaires, deca-millionaires and billionaires, their vision is more about changing their surroundings and changing the world than it is about money… However, it’s always nice to have a few spare dollars.
