talk yourself a millionaire

There was this guy I didn’t like. He talked too much, kept on telling me time and again that he wanted to become a millionaire. I kept on telling him over and over that he could make it if he really wanted to. Next thing he told me, he wanted to earn his first million before his 30th birthday. He kept on repeating it like a mantra. Why did he tell me all of this? As if he could turn into a millionaire just by talking about it.
