20 signs you’re on your way to becoming a millionaire

Tim Sharp/Reuters

Becoming a millionaire may seem like an unobtainable dream.

I've been there and felt like it was unattainable and something that would never happen to me.

Then I started reading, studying and mimicking countless different successful millionaires.

In reality, it's a lot more common than you think and completely possible if you have the right mentality to become rich.

Here are 20 signs, based on observations from several millionaire friends of mine, that you're destined to become successful.

1. You started making money at a young age

One of the most common traits that the wealthy have in common is that they began earning money at young age. For example, a 12-year-old Mark Cuban sold trash bags door-to-door, Warren Buffett sold packets of gum to his neighbors when he was just 6 years old, and Richard Branson bred and sold parakeets as pets at the age of 11.

If you had this entrepreneurial spirit as a child, then that's a solid indicator that you'll become a millionaire since you've always been on the lookout for ways to make money.

2. You're an overachiever

Were you that student who wasn't satisfied with a B in class? Millionaires have the mindset to shoot big. They're not satisfied with making just $1 million. They want to make $10 million.

3. You're really, really good looking

I know. This sounds like a bunch of bull and discriminatory, but research conducted by Daniel Hamermesh, an economics professor at the University of Texas in Austin found that this is the case.

According to his research, "attractive people are likely to earn an average of 3 percent to 4 percent more than a person with below-average looks." That may not sound like a fortune, but that adds up to "$230,000 more over a lifetime for the typical good-looking person."

Hamermesh found that attractive people are able to charm interviewers and are able to land more sales.
