I always believed somehow that money would eventually come along as long as you exceed in whatever thing you do. Well in reality, this is partially true but may not exactly guarantee one of being a millionaire in the very near future. What I learned is that you have to make money making/saving a priority at least for the next couple of years until you reach that goal of having that label on top of your head. I know this does not sound right but it worked in my case and hopefully for you also.
If I could list all of them down, the following are probably my best reasons:
1. Peace of mind knowing my aging mother will have some funds for her hospital bills once her health starts to eventually deteriorate in the very near future.
2. Financial freedom (aka peace of mind, at least for now).
3. A clear mind that I could use my upcoming income from my day job as security guy to finance small projects that has been bugging me on top of my head for quite some time now.
4. Lastly, I want to prove to all future cyber criminals out there that you can earn a decent living without resulting to a life of crime if you just get rid of that "get rich quick" attitude. Always keep in mind that Rome was not built in a day, so if you have patience to learn the latest security exploits, you most likely also have the patience to be a millionaire!
