Investing in stocks is the best way for people to become self-made millionaires.

Investing in stocks is the best way for people to become self-made millionaires. A recent Gallup poll indicates that only 37% of young Americans below the age of 36 own stocks, whereas, about 61% of Americans over the age of 35 own stocks in the same period from 2017 to 2019. This evidence suggests that most Americans fail to leverage the U.S. stock market as a worthy investment vehicle. The magical power of compound interest exponentially contributes to wealth accumulation.

For instance, if a young investor saves $100 per week to earn an 11% stock market average return each year, he or she can receive about $1.2 million after 30 years. This financial discipline requires automatic money transfers on a periodic basis. In other words, most people can consistently invest a small amount of spare money with great discipline to reap exponential cash rewards at retirement age. Moreover, these wise investors can smooth out most extreme stock price gyrations by waiting patiently to accrue compound interest on regular stock investments.  As compound interest snowballs into greater amounts of stock bets, both principal and interest payments roll over and become substantial lump sums after a sufficiently long time span.
