Six Core Strategies on the Path to Being a Millionaire

Six Core Strategies on the Path to Being a Millionaire

I’ve spent years interviewing African American millionaires for my latest book, The Wealth Choice: Success Secrets of Black Millionaires, and I’ve found that while they come from all different walks of life, they share six core values that have helped them get where they are today.

Take a look at these characteristics below and see which ones you have…and which ones you need to succeed.

  1. Do you desire independence?  Do you dream of creating your own legacy?  Do you believe in fulfilling your own destiny?  If you have an independent streak in you, you are much more likely to go after your chances on your own and forge new paths when it seems that all pathways are closed.
  2. Do you have a deep sense of purpose?  Have you always known what you have wanted to do with your life?  Perhaps you have dreamed of sending your kids to Ivy League schools , or have always planned on leading the world into a new Golden Age?  The millionaires I interviewed have a passionate sense of how they want to affect the lives around them…and use it to help them accumulate wealth and prestige.
  3. Are you adaptable?  African American millionaires not only are able to see needs and fulfill them, but they can bend easily with the times.  This is why the most affluent millionaires are still at the top of their game even in the middle of a Recession.
  4. Are you a risk-taker?  The phrase “nothing ventured, nothing gained” is very appropriate for those who wish to rise above their current circumstances.  Earning wealth means taking risks and weathering times of uncertainty.  Millionaires never say “I can’t,” but they find a million ways to say “Why not?”
  5. Are you determined to succeed?  Pessimists are much less likely to become millionaires.  It’s not an automatic disqualification, but those who believe they will succeed—especially while facing failure—are much more likely to push past the pitfalls and turn a profit.
  6. Are you a workaholic?  It may seem like millionaires spend all day at the pool, but getting to the millionaire status takes a lot of work.  It requires long hours and fierce determination at the beginning, but the effort will pay off so long as you keep at it and keep positive. 


  1. I love your books and I have realized that it takes dreams and hard work for real success. I’m not there yet but I’m on my way. God Bless you

  2. Dennis, I am happy that I rediscovered you again! I read your Think and Grow Rich book many many years ago and I have recommended it to many people. Its time to focus back in to what you teach and begin living it again. Thank you for what you to. God bless.

    I was so excited to learn you have a new book out. I read your “Think and Grow Rich” book many years ago. I recommended it to others and made it a practice to give the book as a gift upon high school graduation to my sons, their closest friends and to other close relatives . My copy of Think and Grow Rich was shared with an older colleague , a licensed psychologist and friend who before his death would self publish his own book. A goal he had shared with me and we had talked about . I know your book made an impact on him. I never got my book back from him but I was happy to have shared the book with him.

    Today, I am just getting started reading your newest book ” Wealth Choices”… I will love reading and leaning from the latest book. I already know there is much valuable information in the book and I will recommend it to others . Thank you for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with the world.

  5. I have allowed procrastination and the fear of rejection to hold me back for many years. I am very creative, out-going and work in excellence, however, I thought my work wasn’t good enough. It is about faith and as I grew more in knowing who God is and that He loves me, I realized that I am special and an original; and no matter what I do it is from my heart, mind and spirit. There is only ONE me, so I am motivated to really pursue what I believe I was put on earth to do. I read your books a few months ago and was SO INSPIRED that I bragged and talked about how much they put me on a path of determination. I even inspired a high school friend at a birthday party to purchase your books and she DID! Her desire is to start her own business as well. We know having a mundane nine to five job does not fulfil the burning desire to leave a legacy for our children’s children! So, I thank you Mr. Kimbro for your hard work and drive to write such amazing and profound books. I am certain you have changed MANY lives in doing so! My God continue to bless and keep you! Peace always!
