How to act like a millionaire

I often chuckle at the young professionals going around driving leased BMWs, talking on their three hundred dollar cell phones and their five hundred dollar suits. They often have to have the late trendy fad and run out to purchase it at top dollar thinking that every millionaire out there acts similarly.

They flash clothing with brand names plastered all over them thinking that's the way of the money. Little do they know:

Turns out millionaires save their money instead of spend it, focus on their goals, and take calculated risks. (Interesting tidbit regarding the risk part: “a majority of male millionaire entrepreneurs had been in trouble with school authorities or the police during their adolescence.”)
Little something that my father told me long ago. People that have money, dress in clothing that don't have the labels on the outside. People that don't, have it plastered to act like they have money. Interesting isn't it.
