To earn one million dollars, you have to make one million people smile.
In order to make one million people smile, you should aim to serve 10 million people.
You must deliver a product or service that will appease their needs.
The great fact is that the majority of people don't know what they need until you give it to them. Sometimes, you'll have to pioneer a product or service on faith, hoping it will be worthy of public use.
"If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses."
You'll be in the lab, experimenting with oceans of potions, gathering facts while believing in your dreams. Naysayers and negative self-talk may prove to be indifferent to your plans.
However, with persistence and preparation, you can prevail with your plans. You can concoct a recipe for centuries, even if it's a slight variation of what has been done before.
In my case, there have been countless inspiring individuals who have spoken to millions of people about personal and professional development. However, I am differentiated by my style and story.
You, too, can devise a plan of action to obtain your first million dollars. When you wake up in the morning, ask yourself, "What does the world need that I can deliver?"
If you ask this question, you'll be ahead of millions of people who ask, "What do I need to fit in with others?"
Studying the difference between these questions may offer your breakthrough.
Your goal should be to serve differently, but not in erratic or peculiar fashion. Instead, aim to satiate the needs of the public by finding out what they need--then give it to them.
It's easier than you think.
Just start where you are. Try to find out exactly how many people you're helping out each day. Whether it's five people per day or five-hundred, you should aim to increase the quantity and quality of product or service that you offer.
Soon enough, you'll reach the rarefied airs of achievement. People will trust you enough to pass on the word to others. You won't need a proliferation of sales and marketing tactics.
You'll just need a backbone and a brain.
If you trust this process for earning your first million dollars, you'll never be the same again.
You'll look at people and find solutions for them by offering your gifts, talents, and abilities to their needs. You'll be unselfishly working on your purpose, feasting on your numerous achievements.
Above all, you'll be a millionaire, seeking your second or third million, realizing it was much more than the money you were after.
It was for the one million smiles...
