Wealth File 6 - Millionaires Mindset

Last Update: October 27, 2017

Welcome to another Wealth File Lesson!

Here is a short introduction for those who’ve just joined my series:

I’m reading the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. He has found out 17 ways of thinking and of taking action, which are essential if we want to get really successful and wealthy. He calls these ways of thinking “Wealth Files”. Throughout my journey to a Millionaires Mindset I’m sharing these Wealth Files with you.

Wealth File #6:

“Rich people admire other rich and successful people.”

“Poor people resent reich and successful people.”

We must not look at other people’s success with resentment, jealousy and envy.

“You have to realize that if you view rich people as bad in any way, and you want to be a good person, then you can never be rich. Because how can you be something you despise?”

Negative thoughts of any kind are not good for our mind, they won’t lead to happiness and success. We do need to recognize that negative thinking is not empowering to ourselves or others. When having such negative thoughts, then quickly take control of your mind and refocus on more supportive thoughts.

Many people have been conditioned since their childhood to believe that you can’t be rich and a good person or rich and a spiritual. Many of us have been told that all rich people are bad, dishonest and greedy. That’s not at all true, there are honest and also dishonest people in all kind of social classes.

“If you resent what people have, in any way, shape, or form, you can never have it yourself.”

Millionaire Mind Actions:

  1. Practice the Huna-Philosophy * : Bless that which you want. When you are driving around, surfing the internet or reading a magazine, then bless whatever you like (beautiful houses, fantastic gardens, successful businesses….) and bless the owners or the people involved.
  2. Write and send a short letter or e-mail to someone you know of (not necessarily personally) who is highly successful in any arena, telling them how much you admire and honor them for their achievements.

* Huna Wisdom: The original teachings of the Hawaiian elders.

Now speak out following Declaration loud and clear toyourself, to underline your intention:

“I admire rich people!”

“I bless rich people!”

“I love rich people!”

“And I’m going to be one of those rich people too.”

My own experiences:

I had a great childhood with loving parents and grandparents. I loved going to school learning new things. But as Harv Eker says in his book me too has been conditioned to think this or that through the people around me like relatives, friends, teachers and the society in general. Me too had the belief that wealthy people mostly are arrogant, dishonest and greedy. Throughout my adulthood I got a differentiated picture and I have been able to get rid of these prejudiced beliefs. We must meet all people with respect, whatever social class they are part of.

I have learned to welcome good things into my life and I bless every good thing I already have. I am happy for people who achieve their goals and dreams. This feels good and already makes my life richer!

Hi Pernilla,
When I was in grad school I had a professor who insisted that everyone in his class give him a reason for why one should write well. He made it clear that he wasn't talking about writing as a craft like poetry or fiction, but writing as something teachable to anyone.

We all gave the usual reasons. One should write well in order to more clearly express his or her ideas, to gain a skill that would open doors to success... and so on.

The professor smiled and said, " you are all smart and capable people, but none of you has given me the real reason why it's imperative that everyone learns to write well."

The class was silent. I wouldn't go as far as saying I could hear a pin drop---because for one thing, my professor didn't like clichés. Also, it wasn't true that you could hear a pin drop. But it was very quiet.

"Forget about the conventional thinking you are using to decide why we value good writing." The professor continued. " I want you to think hard and tell me the real reason why it's important for everyone, not just you lucky folks, to write well.

Unable to get the answer from us, the professor told us the uncomfortable yet real truth of the matter.

He said, " I wish I could say to each one of you that this was a fair world, and that you'll always be judged fairly. Unfortunately, there are those who will judge your intelligence by how well you write. whether it's fair or not--and I don't think it is--they will assume that if you write clumsily then you must think clumsily. You must never allow anyone to have the that kind of weapon should they wish you ill."

Wow! None of us expected that--at least not me. Through out high school and college, even at one of the top colleges in the country, my thought of what makes writing good and less good was pretty conventional. One wrote well to become more clear about what he or she was saying. After all, how can you judge if someone is right or wrong if you aren't sure of what he or she is saying?

It never occurred to me, however, that the reason we need to write well is to stop people from thinking we are not as good as they are. From that day on I started looking at famous and rich writers differently. Yes, I admired their success and money. I also respected the fact that their books were perhaps opportunities for others to learn how to better deal with those who would think ill of them.

The bottom line. I think this lesson is also relevant to your topic. If we throw away our conventional thinking of what it means to be rich, we may ourselves open doors to wealth.

As for me, I tried hard to live up to my professor's legacy by tutoring college freshmen who were struggling with their writing. I indeed recognized that far from being clumsy thinkers, many of them were scary smart. They just needed a little help.

Thabo, many, many thanks for another wise and inspirational story. You have such a treasure within you; your experiences and the way you are writing them down is very captivating.

You are making a good point, that if we change our conventional ways of thinking, our eyes will open up to a world of new possibilities.

Do go on publishing your stories here at WA. Soon the community will discover your captivating and engaging posts.

Thabo, if you promote WA (bootcamp) then I think this story would fit in very well there too.

Wish you a nice weekend!

Hi Pernilla,
Thanks for sharing another great summary of the millionaires mindset. If we want to become millionaires, we need to always turn our thoughts into action without hesitation. Instead of thinking of the short term, we should always focus in the long term. We must always be willing to take risk that are well beyond our comfort zone and never be fearful of failing. Thanks again for another great session.

Jerome, thank you for sharing your thoughts and opinion!

You have given great advices: to focus in the long term, getting out of the comfort zone, take action without hesitation and not be feared of failing. This must be repeated over and over again until it sinks into the subconscious.

I'm really grateful for you supporting me on the way to a Millionaires Mindset.

My very best wishes to you!

Phil, your comment motivates me even more to go on sharing this interesting and valuable knowledge.

I'm learning step by step. My thought structures just doesn't change over night, I need to work constantly on my mindsetting and books like this by Harv Eker or other personalities like Pam Grout or Og Mandino helps me to break down the walls of limitations within my mind, one brick after the other.

Phil, I admire your determination and consistent work on your online business. Your attitude fortifes me and surely our WA friends too.

Cheers and see you soon!

Another great summary.

I grew up with that same attitude described in the book; I felt that if someone was rich, then they got that way by being greedy and taking advantage of others. How silly to judge people that way without knowing anything about them!

Unfortunately it stuck with me for a long time. As I wrote in my last blog, when I joined WA, my goal was to make "just enough" money that I wouldn't have to worry about my bills anymore. That was about it. I kept telling myself that getting rich would be nice but I didn't need that. I just wanted to be comfortable. As much as I would love to travel, have a nice home, drive a nice car, I couldn't ask or hope for those things because it was being greedy...

I am glad that my mindset is changing. As I have written a number of times, my family deserves more than that, and having money isn't a bad thing if it lets me help people.

I think this is really one of the big things that keeps some people from being successful. They either think they don't deserve it, or shouldn't have it.

Craig, thank you for sharing your thoughts about this topic. I really appreciate you taking time to give a thourough comment! Always interesting to hear your opinion!

As you know by having read this post, me too have had the same thoughts and feelings about rich people. Negative thoughts of any sort are devastating. Negative thoughts have been limiting me my whole life and now I'm finally breaking out through the walls of limitations and I understand that our beliefs and thoughts rules our life, and I am the one who is the screenwriter of my life and that my conditioned beliefs are not cast in stone, they can be rewritten.

Craig, it's wonderful to hear that your mindset is changing too. Yes, being successful and wealthy is something good, it helps us to fulfil dreams for ourselves, for our families and we can help people in greater need, Important is that we may never forget to be thankful for becoming wealthy.

Looking forward to your comments on my future posts!

Great post Pernilla! Its chocked full of nuggets of wisdom regarding one's thoughts on attaining wealth. I've read multiple books on wealth throughout the years and hope some of what I've read is starting to rub off on me.

I too had been preconditioned and predisposed to negative thoughts about the rich. When I became a young adult, I started thinking differently. I believe everything will culminate through my association with WA.
