I don’t watch movies about zombies or vampires, not unless there’s some comedy in it or a psychological insight about the rest of us, but recently I watched a documentary called, How to Be a Billionaire, which got me thinking about zombies.

Let me explain:

The three billionaires featured in the film are all big thinkers.

And I’m talking BIG.

They are not zombies at all.

One wants to create passenger flights to the moon (!) for you to take your sweetie for a honeymoon. At the same time, he wants to bring back ore from the moon and sell it back here on Earth as a precious metal. He expects it to be a trillion dollar business.

Another created a social media site with his wife and sold it for $850,000,000. Apparently AOL saw the value in it for reaching millions of people. But when it bombed under the new ownership, the couple who originated the site bought it back – for only $1,000,000. They are now investing in even more businesses and revamping their own original software.

Yet another billionaire is creating life-like looking robots of people like you, with the idea of eventually installing your consciousness in them (!)  so you can live forever. Yes, he’s really working on this attempt at immortality.

Each of these billionaires is thinking so big, it may appear insane.

In fact, one of the billionaires said, “If you go to a party and tell your idea to people and they don’t think you’re crazy, then you’re not thinking big enough.”

That’s so important, I want to repeat it –

“If you go to a party and tell your idea to people and they don’t think you’re crazy, then you’re not thinking big enough.”

Besides thinking on a scale most people never entertain, none of the billionaires were pursuing their dreams for the money.

They felt the dream and the pursuit were more important than the money, though they welcome the money to continue the dream and the pursuit.

It reminded me of Walt Disney’s famous quote, “I want to make money from my movies so I can continue making movies.”

All of this got me thinking about my own mission in life.

Am I thinking big enough?

In April I’ll be releasing my new book and new online course, called The Awakened Millionaire.

The book is a manifesto written to set a fire under people to ignite them to go for their dreams, pursue them with passion, and be OK profiting from them, too.

The book is a stir to action subtitled “A Manifesto for the Spiritual Wealth Movement.”

The online course will be through The Awakened Millionaire Academy, and will be a complete how-to on transforming yourself into an Awakened Millionaire.

I’m psyched about all of this, but the documentary made me question how big I was thinking.

The billionaires thought in terms of reaching a billion or more people.

I was thinking in terms of reaching a million.

Obviously, I need to think bigger.

As I brainstormed ideas on how to elevate and expand my dream, I thought of “Zombie Millionaires.”

It would be a great book.

Probably a great movie.

I doubt I’ll do either, but the idea of  Zombie Millionaires made me realize that most people pursuing money are like zombies.

They are dead to their dream.

They are sleepwalking through life.

They have stuck beliefs about money.

What if I awakened the zombies of the world with my new book and free 7-Day Awakened Millionaire Challenge?

I’m kidding around on one level and expanding my mind on another.

I know a fellow making a movie about zombies who learn meditation. It’s his clever way to get people to practice meditation by drawing them in with a story about zombies.

Whatever I do with all this isn’t important.

What you do with it is.

So, are you thinking big enough?

Are you reaching a million people?

A billion?

More?

What would you do if you thought like a billionaire and were devoted to service and making a difference on a grand scale?

What would you do if you were an Awakened Millionaire?

Ao Akua,

Joe

    I thought that said “take out the billionaire’s”. I don’t think I’m a psychopath so I will give it a miss.
