19. There’s a Secret Formula to Success

For whatever reason, people have this strong innate feeling that there is a huge “secret” about unlocking the key to success in life. This is why books like The Secret became so wildly successful. There are even conspiracy theories that some of the most wealthy people in the world are all a part of some club where you’re invited to know the keys to becoming a millionaire.

In reality, there is no secret formula, especially since every path to becoming a millionaire is going to look drastically different from the next. It is mostly hard work, persistence, and a drive to keep going. But if there was any formula to success at all, it would look something like this:

1) Identify what you most passionate about in life.

2) Figure out how you can make money doing it.

3) Research how to achieve your goals.

4) Take action.

5) Keep trying, no matter how difficult the task may seem.
