“When it comes to achieving your millionaire status, or any other significant goal in your life, the first and only person you need to impress is yourself,” Jim Stovall declares in his book, The Millionaire Map.
Unlike most other books about making money, there are no charts, lists to fill out, budgets to complete, net worth forms, goal-setting sheets, workbook, or homework for readers to reflect.
With only three percent of Americans millionaires, Stovall is spot-on reiterating that money is not the end-all but a way to have more choices in life. One should get out of debt, stay out of debt, and not live above his or her means as wealth accumulates. By living on ten percent or less of net worth, he states most wealthy individuals do not buy new cars, live frugally, and become philanthropists.
Being blind at a young -adult age, the author repeatedly references his own accolades of being an author of over twenty books, a television network president, investment broker, entrepreneur, speaker, and even an athlete to confirm his “certified” multi-millionaire status, even offering his personal phone number.
With the book filled with names such as Lee Braxton, Steve Forbes, Donald Trump, Ted Turner, and Zig Ziglar, readers learn money is not a significant factor toward contentment. The writer believes that entrepreneurial ventures can glean a comfortable lifestyle attained by constant persistence.
As an out-going motivator, Stovall obviously knows who he is and what he is worth, stating his eleventh commandment is “don’t kid thyself” when so much is said and not acted upon. This may be a good book for those unsure of themselves and need a push but one wonders how God’s grace and being at the right place at the right time also influence fortunes made.
