Becoming a millionaire one day is a dream we all have and it is no lie that it is anything but a cakewalk. One needs to dedicate their self to it and give their ultimate best to whatever it is that they are doing.
Being a millionaire is not something that happens overnight, so here are 20 signs that you are meant to be a millionaire one day:
1. You start earning young
If you are an entrepreneur at heart, it starts showing early. It could be anything starting from babysitting, delivering newspaper, and so on.
Someone who is destined to be a millionaire is never satisfied with the average. They want big and they will chase big. And guess what – they will get big!
3. You are attractive
Now look, I know that this sounds like all kinds of bullshit, but crazily enough, it is backed by science. Research shows that “attractive people are likely to earn an average of 3 percent to 4 percent more than a person with below-average looks”. This may sound insane but hey, we all like to please our eyes.
4. You are action oriented
You do not sit around waiting for things to go your way, and when you see an opportunity, you run and you grab it, and fight tooth and nail to make full use of it.
5. You live in an urgency
Time is money. You do not let time get the better of you and are racing against it at any given moment. There is no right time to do things; the right time is right now.
6. You want to earn first and then save
You are not looking to fill some pot of money and then take it to your grave. You earn money and you invest it wisely everywhere.
7. You are open minded
You are always looking for new opportunities and new things to try. You keep an open mind and don’t decide that something won’t work in the first glance.
8. You are, and were, popular
Millionaires are the most charming of the lot. Studies show that if you were popular in high school or college, and mixed with a lot of people, you are likely to be more successful.

9. You live below your means
You don’t earn money to waste it. You believe in making smart choices and looking for ways to earn more money, even if that means that you live a humble life.
10. You defer gratification
There is nothing more important that you do other than deferring gratification. Even Warren Buffet made most of his money after he turned 50.
11. You have or had a mentor
Even the best of us need guidance, and a mentor always keeps you focused towards your goals and helps you do the right thing at the right time. There is more to making millions than just working hard; one has to work smart and that needs some solid guidance.
12. You are over the past
You do not dwell on the past. We all fail at some point of our life but people who are destined for success do not let the failure get to them. You get over your setbacks and failures and get back to whatever you were doing.
13. You set goals
You don’t work aimlessly. You make goals and work to achieve them.
14. You are not divorced
Making millions get a tad bit difficult when there is involved the question of dividing your wealth. That being said, it does not mean that you cannot be successful if you get divorced.
15. You know your strengths
We can’t be perfect and therefore the key is to focus on our strengths and work accordingly.
16. You are optimistic
You don’t let negativity get you down.
17. You drink but don’t smoke
Takes up more money than one can possibly imagine and hey, statistics don’t lie.
18. You are thick skinned
You can endure a lot because you know that success does not come easy.
19. You keep up with what is happening in the world
Knowing what is up with the world simply helps you make better informed judgements and decisions.
20. You are always working on yourself
You are never satisfied and are always pushing the boundaries to be the best version of yourself.
