Self-improvement blogger Steve Pavlina does a great interview with entrepreneur and multi-millionaire Marc Allen.
Allen describes himself as lazy, running his publishing company on less than 30 hours a week. He sleeps until 11AM, takes Mondays off, spends Sundays with his family, completely disconnected from the internet and work. He says he came into this success after simply deciding he wanted to be a millionaire when he turned 30 years old – when he was unemployed and barely able to pay the $65/month rent on his one room studio.
What does it take to become a millionaire today?
Intention. That's all it ever takes; that's all it has ever taken for anyone at any time. There are just as many opportunities today as there were a generation ago, and a hundred years ago. As Napoleon Hill said, “Within every adversity is the seed of an equal or greater benefit.”
There are so many great quotes in this interview I didn't know how to choose; so do head over and read the entire piece. I'm not sure how I feel about millionaire-dom being the ultimate goal, but Allen's thoughts on intention, visualization and meditation are fascinating.
