Ep 64: How to Make a Million Dollars with Your Business
January 08, 2019 - 58:03
Here’s the truth about money: The more you have, the more impact you can make. So why wouldn’t you want to make a million dollars in your business?
Well, for many of you, it boils down to what you believe.
So much of what I teach you is to believe. Believe in yourself, believe that you can do the thing, and believe that God put that dream in your heart for a reason.
Remember when you were a kid and you believed? Maybe you believed in Santa, the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny, even flying reindeer. You believed you could be anything you wanted to be. You believed anything was possible. Maybe you even believed you would be a millionaire when you grew up.
But something has changed since then. Something happened as we grew up and became more reasonable and more logical—we stopped believing.
At some point in your journey, whether you realized it or not, you stopped believing and you settled. You probably thought, Well, I’m not going to dream too big because I don’t want to end up disappointed.
If you don’t believe something is possible, you’re never going to try.
God did not create you to be a victim. He calls you to be a victor. He commands you to prosper and steward what you have well.
When you set goals for your business, you also create a plan to achieve them. It’s the same with being a millionaire. If you set a goal of becoming a millionaire, you have to create a plan to make it happen. It’s as easy as that.
You have to be careful of the words you tell yourself. When you hear those negative thoughts in your head saying, I’m not enough, you just need to have a positive thought prepared to tell yourself, I am enough. I got this.
Working Through All the Feelings About Wealth
We all have perceptions of what we think it takes to be wealthy. We even have perceptions of what we think it means to be wealthy.
Should I feel guilty for having money? No! Is it even okay to have wealth? Yes! Yes, it is okay to have wealth! Listen, when God blesses you with His resources, it is up to you to steward these resources well, and He will bless you with more. Imagine the impact you could make if you had an abundance of resources.
Stop holding yourself back and calling it holy. Because the reality is the more money you have the more of an impact you can make.
The bottom line is that you need to be a good and faithful servant of God’s resources. Imagine being able to give like never before and change your family tree. Now that right there is what it’s all about.
Building wealth in a smart way, slow and steady, for the right reasons is the way to go, and you can do this. Don’t get me wrong: It’s okay to enjoy nice things. There is nothing wrong with that. But the true joy in building your wealth comes from being able to give generously and leave a legacy for your family.

The Largest Study Ever Done on How to Make a Million Dollars
Steve Jobs once said, “I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”(1) But don’t just take Steve Jobs’ word for it—the research backs it up.
In the largest study ever done on millionaires, Chris Hogan and his team found that 93% of millionaires say they got there from hard work.
