Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?

I just read THIS GREAT ARTICLE that I found really interesting!

In 1960 a twenty year study was begun of 1,500 people. At the end of the study, 83 were millionaires.

The study found these characteristics common between the millionaires:

  1. They were persistent
  2. They were patient
  3. They were willing to handle both the “nobler and the pettier” aspects of their job
  4. They had an increasingly noncompetitive attitude towards the people with whom they worked
  5. Their investment activities — aside from their main career — consumed a
    minimum of their time and attention.
I find this very interesting, particularly as I watch my daughter and her husband create their own livelihood out of their passion and skills. When my daughter graduated University with a double major in English and French and a minor in Editing, I never thought she'd be making her living as a Graphic Designer!
