Everyone wants to have the freedom and ease of mind that comes from having a million dollars in the bank, but very few people achieve it.  

Be a Millionaire Day isn’t about just suddenly being rich, it’s about acting and thinking in the way those who are millionaires did to become that way.

It’s also about taking care of yourself like you’re worth a million bucks because self-care is an important part of living a good life.

History Of Be A Millionaire Day

While the incredibly rich have existed for as long as there was money to count, the first millionaire didn’t exist until sometime in the 17th century.  John Law had founded the Mississippi Company and due to its success became the first person to be described as a millionaire.

He was worth well over one million French Francs and was the first person known to do so.  A new word would have to be invented in 1916 to describe John Rockefeller when his personal wealth grew to over one billion dollars.

One of the things that have come out of the growth of the very rich is a study of what it takes to become rich.  The most important part of being a millionaire is learning how to manage your money, though a fortunate birth doesn’t help.  

The rest of it involves understanding how money works, what investments will work best for you, and understanding the market you want to bust into.  Winning the lotto bypasses all of this, but you’re far more likely to get struck by lightning.

How To Celebrate Be A Millionaire Day
