It is a process that is well established and requires some focus, a little time and some work.

When you’re focused on a Million-Dollar Goal, you’re alert to the opportunities, people and resources that come your way. Your job is to take action on these things and keep moving yourself forward in this direction until you get there. A small price to pay for financial freedom for the rest of your life, don’t you think?

The Student Millionaire has only ten short chapters. The process of becoming a Millionaire is simple and pretty straightforward. The tough part, if you want to call it that, is understanding these simple concepts and principles, adopting them, and applying them in your life to guide you to your Million-Dollar target.

Becoming a Millionaire requires that you develop a new way of thinking about wealth, about yourself in relation to that wealth, about your capabilities to do this and about your worthiness to be a Millionaire – all important aspects of the process. This is a huge shift in your thinking from where most people are to where you need to be to accomplish this.

This Mindset doesn’t happen overnight. But it doesn’t take long. Following the simple exercises in the book, you begin to shift the way you think in about 4 to 6 weeks. During this time, you go from thinking “This is crazy,” and asking yourself “Who do I think I am to even dare think I could be a Millionaire?”, to thinking that ”Yes, I can do this,” “Yes, this can really happen,” and “Yes, this is so cool.”

Be patient and be kind to yourself. This doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen. And becoming a Millionaire is indeed inevitable if you just follow the process.
