Since my name did not appear on the Forbes Millionaire List this morning, I once again am pulling my professional “lickety stick.” Off to my day of work and chores, I go!

Drinking my coffee at my favorite hangout, Panera Bread, I read an intriguing article, The Top 10 Distinctions between the Millionaires and the Middle Class.”

Allow me to share! Distinction # 10 - Millionaires think long term.

The middle class thinks short term. Distinction # 9 - Millionaires talk about ideas. The middle class talks about things and other people. Distinction # 8 - Millionaires embrace change. The middle class is threatened by change. Distinction # 7 - Millionaires take calculated risks. The middle class is afraid to take risks. Distinction # 6 - Millionaires continually learn and grow. The middle class thinks learning ended with school. Distinction # 5 - Millionaires work for profits. The middle class works for wages. Distinction # 4 - Millionaires believe they must be generous. The middle class believes they can’t afford to give. Distinction # 3 - Millionaires have multiple sources of income. The middle class only has one or two.

Distinction # 2 - Millionaires focus on increasing their net worth. The middle class focuses on increasing their paychecks. Distinction #1 - Millionaires ask themselves empowering questions.

The middle class asks dis-empowering questions.

Now then … What is your mindset? How rich (or poor) are you in your thinking?

No one has the desire to be a wannabe!

And of course, there is no gain to be pretentious by operating with Champagne taste on a beer budget!

The goal is to maximize and realize our fullest potential and land wherever that takes us! Photo credit:
