Of course, you can be rich at a young age. It’s possible to be a millionaire at the age of 20s or 30s. However, the process is not that easy, especially if you are starting from scratch. Unlike other young people who have received their wealth from their parents or families, you have to double or triple your effort if you have nothing to start from. I know a lot of people who have been through this stage. It’s hard but it’s doable. If you want to know some ways on how you can start building your empire as a millionaire, here are some of the tips I learned from rich people.

Spending all your income is not a part of the rich formula. Don’t use your salary or income for the next time as an excuse to finance your wants. You are only putting yourself in a tight position if you are going to exhaust all your income when you can set aside a portion of it for your savings and investments. Instead of looking forward to spending it all, why don’t you allocate 30-40% of it in your savings? The rest should be budgeted for your monthly bills and daily expenses. The 30-40% is meant to be preserved, not spend at a later time.
If you are a business owner, you would better understand this concept. You shouldn’t be getting a loan for the purpose of paying your existing loans or paying your monthly bills if your income can’t cover them all. Your loan should have a better purpose. Successful entrepreneurs get loans for the purpose of using it as capital for new businesses. They also use loans for business expansion. If you do this, you are going to recover the interest payments that you will have to pay when you borrow money. In a better scenario, you can even earn more after paying the principal and interest.
Instead of being greedy, be thankful. Show your gratitude by being generous if you can. Your greed won’t take you any further even if you work hard to get the financial freedom you are dreaming of. You have to balance everything out—your hard work, discipline, mindset, and behavior. Being a millionaire is not always about money. It’s about sharing and caring for others too, especially if you have a set of employees working hard to help you build the millionaire’s empire you want to attain.
