But how long would it take for you to save up and become a millionaire doing it the old fashioned way? According to the website GoBanking Rates, if you work hard and save and invest your income, it could take your roughly 50 years to make it to the million mark. They used 3 factors to come to this result: median income,average cost of living, and taking the difference and investing it at a 5.5% return rate.

The median household income in the Lone Star State is $56,565, and the average per capita spending on personal consumption is $37,486. With $19,079 left over to save or invest, it would take 52 years to be a millionaire if that money went into savings, or two years less if it went toward investments. - GoBanking Rates
