Successful Entrepreneurs Earn Their Wealth The Hard Way


Tom Corley boats - crop

When you think of self-made millionaires, what immediately pops into your mind?

Do you see a well-dressed individual surrounded by a posse, jet-setting from one exciting place to the next in private planes, exotic cars and yachts?

Or do you see someone sitting all alone in boxer shorts and a tee shirt behind a desk, computer or stack of books at 5 am in the morning?

I’ve been studying entrepreneurs since 2004. The Dreamer-Entrepreneur path to building wealth happens to be the fastest and most rewarding of the four paths to riches. The average Dreamer-Entrepreneur in my Rich Habits Study accumulated $7.4 million over a twelve year period.

While it may be the fastest and most rewarding path to accumulating wealth, it also happens to be the hardest, riskiest, most stressful path.

At best, the entrepreneurial journey towards success is insanely frustrating, where nothing seems to move the needle, despite superhuman efforts.

At worst, it’s a daily walk through hell – one riddled with hurdles, let downs, mistakes, failures, problems, disappointments, rejections and financial struggle. Every day the entrepreneur must pivot in order to survive. It takes enormous physical and mental endurance.

It’s not a life you would wish on your worst enemy.

What keeps the entrepreneur in the game is their belief that what they’re doing will pay huge dividends down the road. It’s believing, with unfailing faith, that there will eventually be a light at the end of the tunnel; that one day they will turn the corner.

While passion and a love for what they do is the source of every entrepreneur’s energy, motivation and enthusiasm, belief and hope is what enables entrepreneurs, and their loved ones, to survive the journey of nothingness, hardship and struggle.

So, the next time you see a self-made millionaire, don’t envy them for what they have. Envy them for their ability to endure the hardship.
