The Power of Designing Your Destiny:

George Lucas


What if you have no clue as to what business or career path to take? Well, it doesn’t matter! Sometimes, just setting a specific financial goal will get your mind thinking and guiding you towards the right path.

Before George Lucas left his hometown for college, he already predicted that he would be a millionaire by the time he was thirty. However, at that time his passion and dream was to make it as a race car driver. It was after he suffered a terrible crash that he began to change his mind about that career.

It was only after that accident that he decided that he wanted to become a filmmaker. As a result of his focus on pushing himself to be the best in anything he did, he became a millionaire by the age of 28. However, as I mentioned in chapter three, the primary driving motivation of millionaires is not the money they will make, but the passion they have in what they do.The financial goal they set is only a means of measuring their success. However, what drove Lucas to give his all in the face of insurmountable odds to finish Star Wars was not the money he would make, but by his dream of seeing his fantasy come to life on the big screen.
