Believe and You Can Do Anything, You Can Even Become a Millionaire if You Want

Disclaimer: I am not a millionaire, nor a financial adviser. I am someone motivated by behavioral changes that create results. I would like to share my ideas with you.

I told my 15 year-old sister that if she puts $500 in a Roth IRA each month starting now, by the time she is 40 she will be a millionaire easily. I am not sure if that is true because I am bad at math. But I believe it is possible and compound interest is real. I believe that if you do something long enough, you are more persistent and you have passion, you can do anything. You can even become a millionaire. This belief system started about a year ago.

A year ago I was in debt–I still am, like most millennials, and I was trying to buy a house I could not afford, like many of my peers. My wife was losing faith in me, we argued about wanting things we could not afford, like a house. We could not find anything in our price range and we didn’t really have a price range or a plan: just buy, that was it. We were juiced or influenced by everyone around us, social media, family, and realtors. When we hit rock bottom that was the turning point. We had spent about $5k in money that wasn’t ours. We had credit cards and student loans and we needed a house. Until we realized we had bigger problems. We had debt problems. Then we stopped.

At that point I started listening to and reading Dave Ramsey, I started reading Brian Tracy, I started reading about investing and inflation, and I started working toward integrity with my partner, trying to become something and someone I thought I could never be, just better and debt free.

A year later I am trying to motivate others to do what is right for their future, for their finances. Numerous books on investing and economics and savings and I have realized that if you want freedom you must protect your finances and work towards growing your wealth your future and your family. These ideas are not new, I am not claiming to have created them, but they have drastically changed my life and my situation for the better so I feel I owe it to others to share it with them, my experience that is.

I see people in debt. I see people unable to pay their student loans and posting on social media about how they consume and use money they don’t have to buy a lifestyle they cannot afford, distracted. I see people protesting when they can fix their problems now, and help others later after they have risen out of their debt. Debt is slavery, to me.

These ideas about my sister being a millionaire by 40 have lead me here. I am about to pay off a credit card that would have been with me a lifetime. I have a plan to pay off my student loans in less than 5 years, including my wife’s. All our consumer debt is nearly gone, save for $680. We are working together as a team to make our family prosperous. It takes hard work and a plan and nothing is perfect but we have seen results in a year and I think you can change the world if you change your financial situation. Believe.

I believe my little sister will become a millionaire by the time she is 40 if she puts $500 into a Roth IRA every month until that time.

97% of American Millennials can be completely debt free in less than 8 years by doing one simple thing, here’s how…

Have you ever woken up and thought that you could actually be debt free, I mean, like, really debt free in your lifetime? No student loan payments, no car payments, no mortgage, no credit card payments… It probably feels like the “fuck-you money” kind of awesome, going from indebted-and-paying-constantly to just existing to peacefully nothing, to actual freedom. That is something. That is real. And how you get there is you set goals and get away from the news and social media. I am working towards getting there, mildly broke now but slowly and surely getting better.  You see, I am horrible at math but because reading a few books about personal finance and factoring with logic, I know I can be out of credit card debt, student loan debt, and all other consumer debt in 5 to 8 years if I just get focused and do. And you can too if you set goals and work hard and stay persistent in your endeavors. You can do anything you set your mind to. Imagine, taking the same amount of time you spend every day updating your social media or working with a movement for someone else’s goals and dreams or investing your time into reading ADvantageous to advertisers news, and putting it towards YOUR GOALS and YOUR DREAMS. You can do it with hard work and time, 98% of the time, guaranteed. Stop being distracted and focus on bettering your situation and in 8 years see how far you have come, 98% of Americans will have changed, hopefully, for the better.

If you want the impossible, you’ll have to do the impossible

If you want the impossible, you’ll have to do the impossible to get it.  Not sit around and diddle, or sit around and post on social media.  Limit these distractions.  Limit all news but the weather.  You don’t need prescription pill commercials nor paid for ideas.  Every day is another day to make it right individually, to attain everything that you want or need in YOUR LIFE.  Sitting here at 5 a.m. on a Saturday, every Saturday, I teach English abroad to make my impossible possible.  I am a dad, human, American.  I have obligations.  There is no questions about it.  I want the impossible.  And the only way to get it is to be realistic, and do the impossible.  If you want something hard work is the key, that shouldn’t be impossible.
