How come some people become successful millionaires and others don't? Why is it that only a small percentage of the population seem to live their dreams and get to design their own lifestyle?

As Tony Robbins always says:

“Success leaves clues.” 

One thing I've learned as an entrepreneur is that you can be your own worst enemy and best ally at the same time. I've learned that you success is 80% psychological and 20% fundamental.

So, if you can get the 80% of the psychology down that millionaires and billionaires have, you are have almost won the battle already.

It's time you master the right mindsets and thinking habits of millionaires that contribute to such a big chunk of their success.



10 Thinking Habits Of Millionaires:


1. Be Okay With Taking Risks

To make it as an entrepreneur, you're going to have to face the unknown. You will have to take risks and live with the results of your decisions.

Risk is a beautiful thing though because that is where the biggest rewards and accomplishments originate from. You can't always play it safe. You can only give yourself the best chance to succeed.

Know what the best-case scenario is. Know what the worst-case scenario is. Then, make the decision that will get you where you want to go the fastest. Don't ever limit yourself or your business' potential.


2. Be Grateful

Greed can get in you in a lot of trouble. One common mindset of millionaires is their gratitude. Being grateful really allows you to enjoy the journey more and be proud of your accomplishments along the way.

It could always be worse. Chances are, millions of people have it much worse than you do. Chances are, numerous people have tried to do what you have and haven't made it as far as you.

Being grateful not only allows you to enjoy the ride, but gives you a positive mindset for taking on more challenges. Don't complain and take what you have for granted.

Be positive and grateful and more you'll live a happier life while attracting more future success.


3. Welcome A Challenge

Being an entrepreneur can be very hard. Let's face it, if it were easy, everyone would do it and there would be no one left to hire to run our businesses. To become a millionaire, you have to face many challenges.

Challenges may be viewed in a negative perspective sometimes, but they are what force us to grow and improve.

For every challenge you overcome, you become wiser, you gain experience, you improve your business and you become more confident in your abilities.

Welcome challenges, don't try to avoid them and don't ever give up when it seems like you can't figure it out, because you will. When you do, it will feel amazing and you will be better for it.


4. Surround Yourself With The Right People

“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

– Jim Rohn

Along your path to success, you will have to make tough decisions about not only everyday tasks and challenges, but also about the people you surround yourself with.

Some people uplift you. Some people are toxic. As an entrepreneur, you have to face the truth and recognize who is helping you and who is holding you back.

Sometimes you will have negative employees, bosses, associates, and even friends that will hurt your chances of being successful with their influence alone.

Habits are contagious when you spend a lot of time around the people who have them. Surround yourself with goal-oriented, successful people and their good habits will rub off on you.


5. Be Confident In Yourself

Your attitude can make or break you. If you don't believe in yourself, eventually you will talk yourself out of even trying to be successful. You'll begin to settle for less and see your goals pass you by as a result.

If you have to create your own success. It will never just appear out of thin air. When you believe in yourself, you allow yourself to tap into your potential and maximize your performance towards a goal.

When you don't believe in yourself, you will procrastinate, talk yourself out of working and eventually quit if you let it go too far. Be confident and prove to yourself how great you really are.

6. Have A Vision For The Future

One reason a lot of people quit or fail is because they focus too much on the hard work it takes to achieve something, instead of visualizing how life-changing it will be when they achieve it.

Actions follow thoughts. Visualize your goals to the point where they seem so close, you can almost taste what it's like to reach them.

Some people write down a list of their goals for the week, month and year to help them. Others may find visuals of what their goals look like and put them up in their office where they can see them everyday.

Whatever helps you visualize your goals better everyday, you should do. This will keep you more inspired and productive because you will never forget what you are working towards.

Find a way to take your goals from just thoughts in your head to physical visuals that you can see everyday and you will be astounded by the difference it makes.


7. Be Aware And Mindful

Always be thinking of the bigger picture. How can you take another step closer to reaching your goal today? Always be thinking about how you can be the most productive and efficient that day.

Which tasks would get me closer to my goal the fastest? Which tasks take up a lot of time, but don't get much results? Ask yourself these questions and you will know what to do.

One thing Tim Ferriss will teach you is to always get your most important task done before 11:00 AM everyday, so you never go a day without starting off productive.

Also, be aware of all the different angles a decision could lead to and be prepared for what comes with them, so you don't have to take a lot of time to clean up messes in the future.

Millionaires know how to prioritize, know all angles and be as efficient as possible in the time they have each day.


8. Follow Your Passion

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.”

– Steve Jobs

It's extremely hard to stick with a business if you aren't truly enjoying the time you spend on it. A lot of new entrepreneurs quit because they hate what they are doing and don't have a boss or anyone to make them do it.

This is why, to ensure you always stay productive and work towards achieving your goals, you need to find something you are passionate about.

Sure, you probably won't like every single aspect of your business, especially the first few years when you aren't able to outsource yet, but you can make sure your goals are easy to work towards.

See the overall picture of what you want to accomplish and it will make the aspects you dislike much more tolerable. When you really love what you do, you won't want to quit.

You will want to keep at it until you've done something incredible with your business.


9. Choose Your Own Goals

When you set your own goals instead of just following the ones others have set for you, you tend to work a lot harder towards reaching them.

If you want to increase your motivation, set goals for yourself that you would like to accomplish. These goals will carry a much deeper meaning and have a more positive impact on your life.

The personal goals you reach, the more developed you become as a person. Keep challenging yourself and creating your own expectations of your performance.

This will create new levels of production, accomplishment and prosperity in your life.


10. Be Courageous, Not Fearful

“You must realize, fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real. But fear is a choice.”

– Will Smith

Don't fear the unknown or the consequences that could come of a decision. To be successful, you have to be courageous. You have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and venture into the unknown.

Don't worry about failure because failure isn't always bad. Don't look at a situation as a succeed or fail scenario. See it as a succeed or learn scenario. You learn more from failure than success.

Therefore, either you do it right the first time, or you learn and have a better chance of succeeding the second time. If you look at life this way, every situation can be positive.

Being fearful is just something you create in your mind that isn't real. Have courage, believe in yourself and deal with each situation logically, instead of being consumed by what could happen.

This will help you grow as an entrepreneur and never have trouble accomplishing new goals.



These 10 mindsets or habits will set the pace for success in all aspects of your life, not just business.

Once you master these thinking habits of millionaires, you will have 80% of success down because of the proper psychology you have created. Then, it's just up to the other 20% of fundamentals.

Which of these habits do think is the most powerful for creating success as an entrepreneur?

      Indeed to have a successful life you need to take risk and face the challenges. All millionaires are willing to turn risk into opportunities. It is a matter of personal conviction. Here the reason why you need to think like a millionaire

    • Sunday

      Hi Justin,
      You are absolutely right about these mindsets. I have noticed them in some of the greatest minds around. Success can be copied, hence if I rightly apply same mindsets I will replicate similar success stories.

      I love the quote of Will Smith “You must realize, fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real. But fear is a choice.”

      Fear is one mindset that we must do away to achieve the best we can!

      I left the above comment in as well.

      • Justin Bryant

        I agree, Sunday, that is a great quote. Fear does not serve us and therefore we should learn to dwell in our minds. The most successful people in the world are the ones that train their minds to use only thoughts or mindsets that serve them.

      • Anna

        I would love to work with you Sunday!!!

    • Steve Kuipeer

      Hii, point 4 is the best point. It says “surround yourself with winners.”
      You are the average of the five people you spend time with. Really a great content. Thanks for uploading this article. Keep doing the good work. Love from Goa, India.

    • Steve Kuipeer

      Really a very helpful and motivation content. Keep helping us by writing more. Love from Goa, India.

    • MoneyMake

      Great post! I agree your mind is massive when it comes to being successful. In my case I hate losing and as a result will never really take any risks. If you read books about millionaires most of them have failed more times than then have won.

    • Donald Fabraun

      Hi! It’s very informative, inspiring and motivating.

    • Tony Rivera

      A comfort zone is where you are at ease and in control of your environment. Instead of saying comfort zone, it would be (in my opinion) accurate to say to get out of your habit of procrastinating, for example. Not a comfort zone, but a habit., a condition.
