I became a millionaire within 10 years. Of course everyone wants to do it in 1 or 2 years, but the slow and steady route is more probably. You can read many books on investing and saving and what you should do with the stock market and mutual funds. It also helps to read personal accounts of those who became millionaires with only a job. Read how to become a millionaire and not some extreme situation that is not repeatable. I feel reading these stories is insightful to gain the millionaire mindset and become wealthy yourself.
