The Idiot Millionaire

You know him, the Idiot Millionaire.  He makes more money than you (maybe more than anyone you know), works half as hard as you, and is not nearly as intelligent.  You are baffled by his success, and if you let yourself admit it, you’re a little jealous of his accomplishments.

What’s so frustrating about the Idiot Millionaire is that he’s where you think you should be, living your life. It’s like God’s playing a cruel joke on you, where the talentless cretins rule the world, while those who should (on paper) achieve greatness, never realize their potential.

But here’s the thing – the Idiot Millionaire has one thing you don’t have:  balls.  The Idiot Millionaire may be an idiot, its true, but your “smarts” are exactly what’s holding you back.  Instead of going for it, you analyze the situation until you talk yourself out of following your dreams, launching the business, or writing the book.  And so, while you “think”, the Idiot Millionaire “does”.

This weekend, do yourself a favor.  Dust off your Big Book of Ideas and pick something, anything, that you think is worth pursuing and take the first step.  This is how all millionaires (Idiot or not) began their own journey to success, and I can assure you, none of them had any more talent than you do.
