Millionaire Wealth Principle #1 “Think A Million”

Discussing and teaching the 52 Millionaire Wealth Principles started as a way to help me reach my goal of creating 100 Millionaires. I was already running a weekly training for real estate investors teaching marketing strategies for wholesalers but realized that wholesaling was never going to help my students attain financial freedom on it’s own.

I needed a new tactic. A class or a training that would keep them engaged weekly with activities they could put into action each week while stacking the habits of a millionaire. I knew that if I could just find a way to keep my students engaged for a full year their chances to find financial freedom would rise with every week they absorbed the information and stayed in the group for accountability.

There are 52 weeks in a year and trying to break down all of the wealth principles into smaller chunks like top 5 or 10 ten is like saying do you want a roof or a foundation. You need ALL of the components to make a house a good investment and the 52 wealth principles include the smaller lesser known principles as well as all of the “Heavy Hitters”.

I knew that the best place to start was at the beginning and so I scheduled the, Live Training on Wealth Principle #1 – “Think A Million” and after months of running these trainings I have started to see some VERY exciting growth in my students and have decided to share this first Millionaire Wealth Principle with YOU.

This is a thought universe and so it makes sense to start your millionaire journey with your thoughts! “What we think about, we bring about”. It is the common theme of the “Law Of Attraction” which can sound pretty out there until you start applying it to your world.


For now lets just assume that this principle of “thinking” your way to riches is real and it works. How do you do it, Where do you start and How long does it take? These are great questions and ones I hope to be able to answer for you.

How To Think A Million

Thinking a million comes from instilling a burning desire to attain the million dollars. The goal is to “feel” that it is already yours and it belongs in you portfolio and accounts. You will get yourself into a state of mind every day where you are thankful for the money that is yours and for the abundance that is bringing the rest of your money to you. A good trick for this is to just imagine a time where you owned something valuable, it was taken away from you and because you were so used to it you went out and immediately purchased or replaced that valuable item, because it was a part of “who you are” or your quality of life.

Where Do You Start

It starts with Writing down on a piece of paper, a white board, a journal or some other place where thoughts are allowed to be seen and remembered. Write down what a million dollars looks like. begin by drawing a dollar sign followed by a number one, a comma, three zeros, another comma, three more zeros and it looks like this: $1,000,000.  Now that you know how many zero’s make up your goal it’s time to go shopping mentally for “Assetts” that provide a return in the form of cashflow, profit or dividends. This can be rental property, a business or stocks. Build yourself a “paper” portfolio made up of these assets and add this “shopping list” to your project right under the $1,000,000 goal.
Put it up on the fridge, your vision board, in your living room, your office and your bathroom mirror. Put it anywhere that you will see it daily and make sure your significant other is on board with this goal.

Why Does This Work

There is actual science behind why this Million Dollar shopping list works. It’s called the reticular activating system and it is a short, pencil-sized piece of the brain located just above where the spinal cord is attached to the brain. It acts as the gatekeeper of information between most sensory systems and the conscious mind. It’s one purpose is to seek out anything that is useful to your survival. This is why you must have a “burning desire” to own your million dollars. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between a real threat and a luxury (just think of how you never seem to notice or think about gas stations until you REALLY need to fill your tank). Then suddenly your mind races through every gas station it has seen and decides which is the best option for your situation.

How Long Does It Take

I am often asked how long does this whole process take and I wish I had an easier answer. It really will depend on how well you can put these 52 Millionaire Wealth Principles into practice and how strongly you create the “Burning Desire” in your mind.

Book of the Week

The book of the week is “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and it comes from the “Foundational 5” which you can find the list at my website where you can also learn more about my goal of Building 100 Millionaires. I know many of the readers on this site have likely already read this book and I want to congratulate you on making that first step. You can feel free to jump ahead to the next books in the list or re-read this one.

Thank you for taking your valuable time to invest in yourself by reading this article. I know you will take the action steps above and I am looking forward to being able to continue to work with you on your path to becoming a millionaire and much more.
