How to Earn A Million Dollars

Updated on January 18, 2013

Sure, you desperately want to earn at least a million dollars. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be wasting your time reading this silly hub of an unknown author.The question is not whether it is easy or difficult to earn a million dollars in as much as whether it is easy or difficult to perform a feat that compels you, the audience, to applaud the feat of a performer.The performer in question has a highly developed talent that they further honed with years of practice. Now the same task is easy for the performer. I am not implying earning a million dollars is a skill that needs a special talent, but look at it another way – you can cash in on your skills that you have honed to superlative degree.

If you are still reading this article, I presume earning a million dollars has hooked you as a goal or one of the goals.

You need to identify the talent that can attract a million dollars for you. You also need to identify the time frame within which a million dollar goal would be achievable.

If you do not have the patience for skills and talents, you can leverage the power of compounding. A sum of money say 100 or 200 or 300 dollars deposited in an instrument over several decades might earn you a million dollars in the end.

However, we are on an altogether different plan of action to achieve the goal of a million dollars.

You can never earn a million dollars working for petty wages.

You can never earn a million dollars in a lottery, bet, or gambling, or if you do you are probably one among the very very few. Do you want to know how few is few? It is the number of those that have a probablity of being struck by lightning. You can surely quit this approach even if you have already wasted enough money on them.

You can never earn a million dollars doing what you have already been doing for more than five to ten years unless you are already a millionaire. And if you are doing something for over five to ten years with the goal of becoming a millionaire still distant, it is high time you changed your strategy.

Any strategy that you design to meet the goal of earning a million dollars must take into account the numbers. The numbers are very crucial. These are the numbers that will push you to your goal.

The numbers are your viewers, purchasers, clients, audience, readers, listeners, buyers or any name you give to those that enter into business relationship with you directly or indirectly.

However, they are not just numbers for you. They are real, living, thriving and throbbing human beings to whom your business some how appeals. So stop treating them as numbers and connect to them. The deeper your level of connection, the greater boom your business gets.

There are other ways of earning your first million dollars such as stock market investment and investments in property, but they can be risky as well.

The only possibly risk-free goal of a million dollars can be achieved through business or activity where you build a large base of clientele. You will be possibly moving goods and services. You have to decide what goods and services would you be offering that is (i) unique and original (ii) competitive (iii) and what is more important, as Napoleon Hill pointed out, their use value must be more than the cash value.

Whether or not you achieve the goal of a million dollars depends on a number of factors including how powerfully you are determined to achieve your goal against all odds.

And if you are powerfully determined to earn your first million dollars, you surely have a plan in place. If you have a plan, you can surely visualize its achievability; you can probably see it is not an impossible plan.

Your plan to earn the first million dollars may appear difficult before you put it in practice. One that doesn’t know swimming or cycling may find the balancing act quite daunting in the beginning but with more and more practice and training the task becomes smooth and a part of reflex action. You can never sink even if you try to or fall off a bicycle once you have mastered the skill.

Your goal of earning a million dollars cannot fail even if you try to, once you have learned the skills of moving your goods or services among a large base clientele that you have learned to connect to.

It is in fact the goal of connecting with the others that is the real tough nut to crack. I personally believe it is a spiritual act, perhaps also an emotional act rather than intellectual. My next article explains how to connect to people. Go here

      I had my boyfriend Tony have a look at this too. Perhaps we're not quite at the stage of setting our goal at earning a million dollars, but your whole outlook about designing a strategy is inspirational. Thanks.
