PFBlog is about an I-want-to-be-a-millionaire journey, and if you want to start a similar journey, take a look at this quick article of What It Takes To Become A Millionaire from Darren Woodard.
In a nutshell, Darren discussed three things:
First, it takes a saver's mentality to become a millionaire, and the early you start, the more likely you will realize your dream.
Second, one million dollars is not much, but should lead to a comfy retirement (again, for a "saver").
Third, compounding is what takes saving to the million-dollar cashpile, and for this purpose, a properly diversified portfolio usually works better than performance chasing.
One year into my journey, I feel pretty much the same: saving and proper investment decisions are the two pillars of wealth building. While the million-dollar-mark is a thing of subjectivity, which might or might not lead to a comfortable retirement in another's standard, having a goal is better than without one. For a math-loving mind like me, it is more than inspirational.
