Attitude #1 – Decision Maker. Self-made millionaires are decisive. Decision plus Action equals Result. Becoming a self-made millionaire is a result of being a Champion decision maker who takes the action needed to achieve that level of success. You make decisions about your success in every area of life based on your Why, not on how society labels you or what naysayers tell you about yourself.

Attitude #2 – Belief. The day that you realize that you have to build your belief to change your life, you’ve made it! Financially, you may not be a self-made millionaire yet, but the decision to build your belief and develop an attitude of belief-building sets
you up to create the physical wealth of millions of dollars. Have you tried to make a lot of money with no belief? Has it worked? No! You only become a self-made failure with no belief in yourself and your Why.

Attitude #3 – Gut Instinct. Self-made millionaires have gut instinct. My grandfather could barely read or speak English, but within two seconds he could tell you the character of someone and if he would do business with them. It takes more than education to become a self-made millionaire. Just like an eagle acts on its instincts when catching its prey, you must rely on gut instinct to successfully build a million dollar business and survive in our cut throat society.

Attitude #4 – Aggressive. In order to become a self-made millionaire, you must be aggressive and relentless when building your business and achieving your Why. When you walk into an emergency room, you will likely see doctors and nurses aggressively working towards saving the lives of their patients. They aren’t playing games and gossiping with each other while there are people dying in the corner. They are aggressively taking the needed action to succeed in saving a life.
Similarly, a self-made millionaire knows that his ability to build a million dollar business means life or death for his ability to live free and the legacy that he leaves for his family. Are you aggressive in building your business or do you treat it like a hobby that you do every now and then? That’s the difference between a self-made millionaire and a self-made failure.

Attitude #5 – Ridiculous. Self-made millionaires like Walt Disney and Ray Kroc (McDonald’s) were told more than once that their ideas were ridiculous and simply unattainable. Howard Schultz knew there was coffee way before Starbucks, but he still made a ridiculous decision to build a coffee brand that offered a unique experience. Self-made millionaires take action on what others consider absolutely ridiculous.

Attitude #6 – Forward. Think forward and stop focusing on the past. Self-made millionaires think about their future and live in an atmosphere of expectation. They are not shackled to their past, and they don’t allow their past mistakes to hinder their level of success. Many people stay stuck in poverty mindset and will never achieve the next level of success, because they don’t believe in the miracles of tomorrow or their absolute right to be financially free.

Attitude #7 – Undeniable. You must have an undeniable attitude and believe that you can’t be denied your destiny. I can teach you all the marketing in world, but if you don’t absolutely believe that you have the right to achieve your Why, then you will never achieve it. Your belief in yourself and your Why should be so undeniable that it’s the first thing that people notice about you – excitement and enthusiasm about my Why. Self-made millionaires have an undeniable attitude and they refuse to allow their success to be denied by other people’s insecurities and disbelief.

Attitude #8 – Crazy. One of the definitions for the word “crazy” is intensely enthusiastic and passionately excited. Self-made millionaires are crazy about their goals and dreams! You have to get crazy about your business and your Why! If you aren’t willing to stand out from the crowd and be abnormal (above normal), then you don’t want to achieve your Why bad enough.
Self-made millionaires and self-made failures are both crazy, but their focus is different. The intense enthusiasm and passionate excitement is either directed towards your success or your failure. It’s your choice!

Attitude #9 – Ignore. Self-made millionaires ignore the critics. They make the absolute conscious decision to ignore the naysayers that don’t believe in them and tell them that they will never achieve their Why. It’s always the “they crowd.” They tell you that you can’t build your business…they say the economy is bad…they plant seeds of doubt in your mind about your ability and right to achieve your dreams. Ignore them!
The origin of ignore is “ignorance” meaning totally unaware or unknowing. The people in your life that discourage you and don’t believe in you are completely unaware of who you really are and simply don’t know that you are destined to achieve your Why. Ignore their ignorance and move forward towards your Why!

Attitude #10 – Relentless. You must be absolutely relentless in pursuit of your Why in life! Self-made millionaires are relentless and will not let anyone steal their dreams. Being relentless means that you are unyielding and inflexible when it comes to your dreams. Basically, nothing is going to stop you!
Envision someone walking into your house and stealing your valuables or trying to hurt your family. You would be relentless in trying to stop that person. So, why aren’t you relentless about your Why, your ultimate purpose in life that will determine the legacy that you leave for your family? Make the decision today to be relentless about your Why!
