Proactive Millionaires are Team-Made Millionaires

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m a self-made millionaire.” Isn’t there just something about that phrase that doesn’t ring true, no matter who says it?

I believe it can’t be true, because from my experience, true success in life is a team effort. I’m a “team-made millionaire” and proud of it. In fact, each of the wealthy people I know, who are truly happy and successful, have built a team of people who love what they do and are very good at it. I’m good at only a few things, but the world is full of people who are good at everything else.

One thing that has helped me to achieve my mega-goals is creating what I call ‘proactive-teams.’

PROACTIVE LESSON ** Create Proactive-Teams and Become a “Team-Made Millionaire” **

Creating a proactive-team is a skill that can be learned, and once learned, it can be used over and over again to achieve your goals and bring you everything you want in life.

Creating a proactive-team is based on two solid principles.

The first principle is the Law of Attraction. When you are well grounded in your purpose, and have clarity of the vision of what you want most in life; the universe will come to your aid and bring people into your life who know how to do specific things really well. When you spend time each day getting clear on what it is you desire, and then write your goals down or express them in some tangible way, you will always find the people who will help you to get what you want.

The second principle is the Law of Reciprocity. The universe gives to the ‘givers’ and takes from the ‘takers.’ When you give to the people who are on your proactive-team and provide them with the things they greatly desire, like respect, hope, fellowship, encouragement, direction, and love, you will become the recipient of what you greatly desire (your goals being achieved). Notice that what they desire are intangible and are easily given when you know how to do it. Your giving actions will build relationships and create devotion to you as a leader.


If you want to become a millionaire, you can do it more quickly the proactive-team way.



If one of your goals is to become a millionaire and attain financial freedom, then I recommend learning how to become a team-made millionaire from my friend Loral Langemeier, author of "The Millionaire Maker."

Loral has been coaching people how to become millionaires using the team approach for several years and has had fantastic success. Loral uses proven strategies based solidly on the principles I shared above.

Here are the actions steps she recommends:

1. Find mentors who have achieved the goals you're working toward and ask them to coach you along in the process. Nobody can afford to make all of the mistakes and you’ll accelerate your success by asking for help from experts who have gone before you. Also take the time to read books from people who generously share their knowledge.

2. Search for like-minded and supportive wealth builders and visionaries and participate with them in a ‘mastermind’ group. We all need peers to help us be accountable and see things in our ‘blind spots.’

3. Find out who are the top-rated people in your industry. From task-specific legal counsel to accountants who specialize in your type of business, find the best. Also look for people who are non-traditional and on the leading-edge so you can be a step ahead of your competition.

4. Recruit people for your team who are positive and who are known to be team players. It’s critical for everyone to connect well and be supportive of each other. Be proactive from the start and they will follow your lead as your team grows.

The reality is that in today's complex, fast-paced world, you don’t have the time to do everything yourself. You may be the farthest-seeing visionary, most brilliant deal maker, toughest negotiator, and finest closer, but you most likely aren’t also the most inspired tax wizard, legal genius, or office manager. So create a proactive-team to make up for your weak areas.

Follow these steps and you'll be able to create a proactive-team that will help you achieve your goals, like becoming a ‘Team-Made Millionaire.’

Proactively yours, Randy Gilbert
