Think rich to become rich
Today I want to share my thoughts on the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. I have read this book three times and certainly will read it again, because I have not found so much knowledge and wisdom about finances and success in any of the other books I have read.
When you will have finished reading this book, you should have one thing clear – why your financial situation is what it is now.
Maybe you do not know how to manage your money , or are you spending money on the wrong things, or you have been learnt to poorly deal with money in your childhood by your parents. This book is full of very valuable insights, and I am sure that you will want to pick up the marker to highlight the most valuable lines.
When reading this book You will also need to do some tasks, for example, putting your hand to heart, and saying: “My money works for me and gives me even more money”. And then putting your hands on your head, you will have to say, “I have a millionaire mind.”
At the end of each chapter you will also find the main idea of the chapter. These thoughts are called the principles of wealth.
Example of THE PRINCIPLE OF WEALTH: “Where attention goes, energy flows and results becomes visible.”
The five biggest ideas of the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”:
- If you want step up your life to the next level, you will have to dare to refuse some of your existing ways of thinking and accept new ones.
- Owning the highest class tools is important, but being a top class master who skillfully uses these tools is even more important.
- The lack of money is never a problem. Lack of money is a symptom of your actions and choices.
- All the lessons you have heard about money in childhood remain in your subconscious mind as part of your beliefs, and these beliefs dominate your financial life.
- Money cannot make you who you are already.
The idea that I thought for long hours was idea Nr. 4, that that the biggest impact on each person’s financial future is created in childhood, living with parents, grandparents, relatives, etc.
In this chapter I thought about my parents attitude to money, how they spend it, how much money did they have when I was child. Then I compared their habits with mine, noticed the similarities and noticed the differences. The one interesting thing is that no matter how much money my parents have, they are not spending more on luxuries. I believe that this is a good thing to have from them;
I think this book should be read by anyone who has some financial goals in life! After reading this book, you will definitely understand what you are doing wrong and what you should change to make your financial situation better.
I will go through the book again and share the thoughts that i found valuable:
My mind is the greatest obstacle to success
If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.
Your thinking determines your decisions, and your decisions determine the actions that ultimately determine the results.
Your income can only grow as much as you take action!
Wouldn’t it be unbelievable if you had the same thoughts about the money as the rich?
The rich play a financial game to win, but the poor play a financial game to not lose.
The main reason most people don’t get what they want, is that they don’t know what they want. It is very clear to the rich that they want wealth.
The rich are focused on opportunities, but the poor are focused on the obstacles.
Did you know that most people earn within 20% of the average income of their closest friends?
If you want to become rich, you need to change your internal plan so that you fully believe that you are as good as any millionaire or multimillionaire.
If you believe that your offer can really help people, your duty is to offer it to as many people as possible. So, you will not only help people – you will also become rich.
The rich do not run away and avoid the problems and do not complain about them.
If you want to create wealth, then it is extremely important to be open minded and ready to receive.
The real measure of wealth is the net worth, not the income from the business. Net worth is the sum of your total financial value.
Usually, as income increases, spending almost always increases accordingly. That’s why the income alone will never generate wealth.
You need to learn the habits and skills of managing a small amount of money before you can get large amounts. Remember – we are relying on our habits, and that’s why management of finances is more important than the amount of finances.
Finance is an important part of your life, and when you learn how to control it, the quality of your entire life will increase.
The rich make money work hard for them, but the poor work hard for their money.
The main financial goal is to generate passive income.
Rich sees every dollar as a “seed” that can be planted to earn another hundred dollars, which can then be planted again to earn another thousand dollars.
If you are ready to do just what is easy, hard life awaits you. But if you are ready to do what is difficult, an easy life awaits you.
You have to break through your comfort zone and do uncomfortable things. You can grow only by being outside your comfort zone.
The most important skill you can ever have in terms of happiness and success is educating and managing your mind.
If you continue to do what you have always done, you will continue to receive what you have always received.
The definition of madness is to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results.
These was the the most important lessons I’ve learned from this book. So I have learned quite a lot and the book is full of “pearls” and I think that each one will take something different from this book. But the thing that I can guarantee is that this book can help you to improve your financial situation rapidly.
