Huge Helpful Lessons from Millionaires

I was just going through my huge library of books and came across a great book about making big money, written by a good friend of mine that I read back in about 2004. He is the famous Richard Paul Evans. I’ve known the author and his beautiful wife, Keri, for many years and still have fond memories of our great trip paddling on a beautiful Venice canal. Even though I had made many millions of dollars when I read his book, I still totally enjoyed it and learned some good things from the book, The 5 Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me. (And, hey, maybe he even learned 1 or 2 of those lessons from me!)

But, of course, most of the great lessons that have allowed me and others to make millions are universal and haven’t changed much in hundreds of years. However, the most important thing, after you learn those lessons, is to go out and actually do something about it!

Richard is a great guy, but I’m not totally pleased with him. Why? Because he has written more books and sold more books than I have! Okay, yeah, I’m a bit jealous. I’ve written 9 books and I thought that was a lot, but good ole Richard has written 35 books and sold a whopping 35 million copies! Wow, that’s a bunch! I’ll get even by saying that I’m jealous but congrats to you… I’m very pleased and proud of you and how much you have helped other people.

At least I can, with all the time I’ve put into playing the game, beat Richard in tennis. Or, at least, I think I can.

Let me now share with you what Mr. Evans says about those 5 lessons that were taught to him by a millionaire.

Lesson One: Decide to Be Wealthy.

Yep, I totally agree. A person really has to make the conscious decision that becoming wealthy is a big goal for them.

Lesson two: Take Responsibility for Your Money—1. Know How Much Money You Have… 2. Know Where Your Money Comes From… 3. Know Where Your Money is Going… 4. Know What Your Money Is Doing.

In regard to item number 4, what he means is, if you know that your money is just sitting in your checking account, look for ways and means to get it working for you.

So those are just the first two lessons. I will break down some of these great rules from my own experience in my next week’s post but in the meantime you ought to go buy Richard’s great little book. You won’t be sorry.
