Millionaires Mindset Introduction
Two of my WA-friends (VeronicasLuv and Johnwnewman) inspired me to read the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. He is an author, businessman and a very known motivational speaker. He was born 1954 in Canada where he also grew up. Now he lives and works in the United States. He has experienced the ups and downs in business life himself. In his twenties he started several businesses, but they were not very successful. One day he got inspired by a friend of his father, who told him that rich and wealthy people all have the same kind of thought structure, which middle income earners and poor people do not have. He then decided to study and learn how rich people think and how they act. Eker discovered that it really was true – rich and wealthy people do have a certain way of thinking and taking action than less successful people. Eker soon became aware of how his own thoughts prevented him getting rich. He founded a retail fitness store and followed the new principles of thinking he had learned. He made within only a couple of years millions of dollars.
The conclusion is:
If we want to be successful, if we want to be independent and wealthy, we have to change our behavioural pattern.
“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.”
Quote by T. Harv Eker
How does our behavioural pattern arise?
Eker describes the process of manifestation as followed:
Thoughts leads to Feelings,
Feelings leads to Actions,
Actions leads to Results.
But where from does our thoughts originate? As a child, we get characterised by our nearest relatives, friends, teachers and so on. Therefore, it is obvious that the social environment does condition our thoughts and behaviour – we learn to think and behave as the people around us do.
As we grow older we start to develop our own thoughts but it recalls past experiences, the information files deep inside our brain.
The first exercise to do in order to be able to change into a Millionaires Mindset is to analyse our thought structure. First, we have to find out how we think today, so that we can decide which thoughts we may want to keep and which thoughts we must change if we want to get successful.
As I wrote down my thoughts about Money, Wealth and Wealthy People which are deeply rooted since my childhood, I discovered just like T. Harv Eker, that my thoughts have prevented me from taking chances and getting really successful. We can’t possibly get successful and rich if we have reluctant thoughts about rich and successful people.
This book is opening up my eyes, indeed. I can highly recommend you to read it.
