Minimum wage in this country at 40 hours a week is a little over £15k a year. Take off the £200 a week living expenses (assuming you can find such a situation suitable for where you work) and you're down to around £13k a year.

Not taking into account interest, which lets be fair, atm is pretty poor, it would take around 75 years to reach 1million, assuming no unforseen expenses, no banks crashing and loosing all your money etc. At this point you're probably to old to enjoy it anyway.

You need three things to become a millionaire:

1) A sound mind for business
2) The means to start up a business (even small at first)
3) A tremendous work ethic and liaising skills

You don't need a huge inheritance, a degree, good looks or sheer good luck. Just a plan and the motivation to stick it through, with the willingness to persevere and change paths a little where needed.

Yes, you are right. That 70 year old bloke down the road can easily become a millionaire. That unemployed teenager with no money living outside the pound shop in a sink hole town in the north east? He's just lazy. That pregnant sixteen year old blind girl? She's just lazy too. What about that sleeping git in intensive care? Yeah, the one in a coma? He's just lying around, doesn't even need to pay for accommodation! Lucky bloke! He'll be a millionaire soon as well.

I can assure you that trawling the net for success stories won't make you a millionaire. But it will definitely make you wish you were one. Rather than talking about it, let's see you do it.

I'm guessing you mean young, single people in the West when you say anyone right? In which case, I agree (if only theoretically!)

But here, what would be the point?

Is building up to a million pounds really worth sacrificing your work life balance and your health?

Would they be any happier?

You can become stinking rich if only you adopt the right mindset claims guy who works hard and makes sacrifices but still finds the time post more than 200 times on TSR in a 24 hour period.

It is certainly easier if you have the work ethic and ability to get into Oxbridge or the universities immediately below them. There is a reason why top firms recruit heavily from them and not lesser intuitions.

I'm still kinda missing the point here.

At the end of the day there's a difference between saving a million and making a million. The latter is very difficult to do.

Starting up a business is probably the "easiest" way to do it but there's a lot of risk involved.

If they don't want it bad enough... doesn't that mean they don't care about becoming rich? Therefore why should they care about making that sacrifice?

No word of a lie, I am one of those people and I have thought about it time and time again and in all honesty - if someone offered me a million pounds free - no questions asked, for nothing in return, no catch - I'd honestly reject it.

Not everyone craves money. Nor do they need it to be happy

To become a millionaire, you need to pocketing an average of £25,000 for 40 years. Most jobs don't pay that much, but even if you had one that did, you'd be 60 by the time you'd have £1 million.

Actually I think I have a pretty positive mind set. You do realise that anybody aged 20 and below, in full time employment, will have earned a million by the time they retire? The issue, as you point out, is a lack of drive and know-how will prevent most from earning a milllion quickly.
