Paint a Portrait of the Person You Want To Be

Self-made millionaires are visionaries. Long before they turn the corner towards their first million, the rich see themselves as millionaires.

Fifty-three percent of the self-made millionaires in my Rich Habits study said they were convinced they would one day be wealthy. They literally looked into their future mirror and saw themselves as wealthy.

This Future Mirror Strategy is a Rich Habit of self-made millionaires. I’ve written about this habit in my book Rich Habits.

I believe the ability to look into the future and to see yourself as successful and rich, is the springboard for every action and every decision that ultimately leads to wealth. Knowing where you want to go and who you want to be comes first. Wealth comes second.

One of the reasons self-made millionaires are able to embrace this wealthy futuristic vision of themselves is they habitualize, on a daily basis, unbridled optimistic thinking. And they eschew any negative thoughts of mediocrity, failure or poverty. They embrace individuals who live in a world of YES and they avoid individuals who live in a world of NO.

Self-made millionaires live in a fantasy world of their own making in which anything and everything is possible. This futuristic thinking spurs them on, providing them with the energy and motivation to work long hours, consistently for many years, until their futuristic vision becomes their new reality.
