Man Asks Millionaires What Advice They’d Give Their Younger Selves

And some of this you can do too.

Everyone wants to be a millionaire, but it's easier said than done. It takes a lot of hard work, but it also has a lot to do with the choices you make and how you plan your future. Some guidance from successful people can give you the motivation you need to start thinking smarter about your money habits.

TikToker @theschoolofhardknocks tracked down some millionaires and asked them what advice they would give to their younger selves, and received some pearls of wisdom. 

These helpful tips can be used by anyone in any stage of life. As the gentleman in the video explained, what you study in college plays a key determining factor in how much money you will make in the future. Make sure you study something that can be applied across multiple fields. 

It's also important to invest your wealth in growing markets, whether it's real estate, as another gentleman in the video suggested, or in stocks. Investing is the fastest way to grow your wealth.

Other TikTok users echoed their agreement in the comments. "As an engineer turned accountant, I felt this analogy in my soul," @jazzy_luxe said. "Having a degree in accounting and experience opens up doors for whatever else in business," @brenndac09 said. "I'm an accountant," @hardbackheaven shared. "The industry is recession-proof and there is so much money in it."

No matter where we are in our journey to financial success, we should follow the example the last gentleman set for us. We should recognize our accomplishments and encourage ourselves to keep going.
