Just remember, you may already be a millionaire. Maybe not by the amount of money you have in the bank but because of your good health, the good health of your family, living in a great neighborhood (even if that kitchen isn't big enough), friends who will give you the shirt off their backs, a healthy spirit within you, etc.
Being a millionaire doesn't need to be all about how much money you have. Happiness and health are priceless.
