Parade Magazine ran a story last week called ‘What I did with my first Million’. Several movie stars were interviewed about what they bought with their first taste of big money. What I (Steve Siebold) learned from 24 years of interviewing world class performers is the heart of why it’s so important for all of us to make a million, but it has nothing to do with how you spend it. This is one of the most signifcant mental toughess lessons I ever learned about the mind/money connection. (as my friend Bob Proctor calls it)

  1. Excellent post and very true, Steve.

    Along those lines, the business I’ve been in twelve years now requires a visionary belief fueling motivation fueled by a want-to succeed for specific personal expectations of outcome that are highly subjective.

    One way to look at the visionary belief is to recognize this difference in expressions: most people will never make a million dollars and I’m a part of most people so I probably won’t either but I’ll try.

    Compare that with: most people will never make a million dollars and I’m a part of most people BUT I’m different. I will make a million dollars.

    The difference is that the first two parts “most people” and “I’m part of most people” are true while the conclusions are totally made up, totally imagined, totally based on a visionary belief “I probably won’t” or “I will.”

    One is a negative visionary belief while the other is a positive visionary belief. That’s what I point out to people, Steve.

    Along with that goes a business, a system, a plan-of-action, a passion to make it happen.
