10 Practices for Becoming a Self-Made Millionaire

10 Practices for Becoming a Self-Made Millionaire

1. Do it for the challenge.
If you ask any self-made millionaire why they got started in the field they did, chances are they will not just say “to make a million dollars.” The true story behind most people’s success is that they wanted to accept the challenge of following their dreams and becoming successful on their own terms.

2. Never get too comfortable.
There should never be a time in your journey to the top where you stop and think “Ok, I’ve done enough, I can stop working so hard.” If you’ve met your goal and made a million dollars, set another one. You should never be comfortable, you should always be working for more.

3. Study and work harder than anyone.
No matter how talented you are, you will never reach your full potential success unless you are willing to study and work harder than anyone else. This is the only way to truly achieve your goals.

4. Learn from failures and mistakes.
You are going to make mistakes and you are going to fail. How you react to those failures is what makes you successful. If you fall, don’t get down on yourself, but look at why you failed, take it as a learning experience, brush it off and move on.

5. Read every day.
This rule cannot be emphasized enough -- you need to be reading all the time. Never stop reading and never stop finding new topics to read about. You need to keep aware of the cutting edge movements within your industry to stay ahead of the trends.

6. Keep your mind and body healthy.
Exercise along with mental health breaks are all an important part of being the most successful version of yourself that you can be. Work out daily, eat right and always get plenty of sleep.

7. Surround yourself with successful like-minded people.
Surrounding yourself with the wrong people can be a major drain on you. Make sure that you are around people who share your same goals and visions, who are motivated and are true peers that also want financial success. Being around these individuals will motivate you and help you stay focused. Avoid people who don’t care about work. People who spend all of their time partying are not good for your success.

8. Give to the less fortunate and take care of loved ones.
We’ve talked about taking care of your mind and body, but it is also important to take care of your soul. Never lose sight of the world around you and those who are in need. Taking care of your loved ones is one of the best ways to enjoy your financial success.

Give back to those in need. I started my Timothy Sykes Foundation to help those who are less fortunate. It has really made a difference in my perspective and work ethic.

9. Be honest and transparent.
Lying and being deceitful will never get you as far as you think. You need to always be honest, straightforward and transparent with people. This is a truly important and undervalued practice that will help you earn the long-term professional success you have always wanted.

10. To succeed think long-term, not short term.
So many people are focused only on their short-term success and have goals like “I want to make X amount of money in the next year.” Don’t focus on short-term goals, focus on the long-term big picture of where you want your life to be. These are the types of goals that will get you motivated to being truly self-sufficient and building actual wealth for you and your family.

While there undoubtedly is a certain amount of challenge that comes with becoming a self-made millionaire, if you keep these rules in mind and learn from the success of those who have accomplished this goal in the past, then you will be armed with the insight you need to help make your financial goals a reality.

GROUP DECRIES SPONSORED ATTACK, SLAMS SON’s CEMENT POLICY

Displaying aam.jpg
AAM President, Omife.I.Omife (2nd Right), Nnorom Charles, Legal Consultant (2nd left), Celestine Achi, PR Consultant (extreme right) and Odion Alebor (Extreme left).

A human rights organization Alliance Against Monopoly (AAM) has decried what it termed the spate of orchestrated onslaught on its image and integrity.  These attacks, which have escalated in the past few days, the organization claimed, are intended to misrepresent it and impose on it phantom officers and activities that are alien to it.

Speaking at a press conference held in Lagos, the President of Alliance Against Monopoly Mazi Omife I. Omife specifically referred to stories in some newspapers one of which was on page eleven of The Guardian of Friday September 11, 2015 captioned "SON Under Fire Over Policies". Omife opined that “these apparently sponsored stories were conceived to hoodwink and mislead the unsuspecting public.” He stated that, contrary to erroneous impression created, AAM did not at any time, in the recent past, indicate that it would hold demonstration in any part of the country.

Omife categorically denied that a certain Mr. Mohammed Aliu Usman as reported in the said story in The Guardian of Friday 18, 2015 was a member of AAM or its Publicity Secretary. He alleged that those who created the non-existent Mr. Mohammed Aliu Usman were the same people who have consistently spinned the lie that AAM was either fronting for a multinational in the construction industry. To him; nothing could be further from the truth as ‘’his association is non partisan and wholly independent. Our goal, he stressed, is and remains the public good.’’

 Omife restated that members of AAM would remain committed to their constitutional duties to seek the welfare of fellow citizens òf Nigeria and shall continue to denounce the cement standardization and pigmentation policy of the Standard Organization of Nigeria as illegal, anti-people and calculated to send Nigerians to avoidable economic servitude.



AAM, Omife assured, will continue to support every well meaning move by those in authority to entrench best practices in the construction industry as long as this move was transparent. He lamented that the raging crisis in the cement industry was needlessly ignited by the Standards Organization of Nigeria. AAM, he emphasized, would continue to resist all overt and covert attempts to enthrone monopoly in the cement sector. Omife therefore enjoined the Buhari government to, as a matter of urgency, call the Standards Organization of Nigeria to order so as to forestall its avidity to pursuing enlightened self-interest in the guise of public good.
