Review | Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

“Money will only make you more of what you already are.” 4/5 stars!

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it!

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?

The shocking answer is: None of the above!

In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it.

In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth.

If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too!

This book was great! I feel like it has a very strong influence from “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, but it still had the author’s touch, which made it unique.

The money blueprint was one of the most important things I took from this book. If you don’t set your mind for success, it is most likely you will fail and you will never be happy no matter how much money you make. First you need to fix the invisible and then deal with the visible!

Even though this is a book about money, you can definitely apply this book to other areas of your life, because the mindset is what really is important. It’s all about having the right attitude in life!

There are so many great quotes I took from this book that I had a hard time deciding which one I was going to use as a main quote for the review. So here are some of my favorites that I still wanted to include here.

“Your life is not just about you. It’s also about contributing to others. It’s about living true to your mission and reason for being here on this earth at this time. It’s about adding your piece of the puzzle to the world. Most people are so stuck to their egos that everything revolves around me, me, and more me. But if you want to be rich in the truest sense of the word, it can’t only be about you. It has to include adding value to other people’s lives.”

“If you want to fly with the eagles, don’t swim with the ducks!”

“It’s not enough to be in the right place at the right time. You have to be the right person in the right place at the right time.”

“If you shoot for the stars, you’ll at least hit the moon”

“What you focus on expands.”

“Nothing has meaning except for the meaning you give it.”

“Keep your eye on the goal, keep moving toward your target.”

“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.”

“The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want.”

Pretty cool quotes, huh? 

And just as a side note: I also liked when the author asks the readers to touch their heads and say “I have a millionaire mind”. I see why people think it’s corny, but I understand the purpose of connecting the feeling to the thought.

I liked this a lot! It was a quick, informative read that I would recommend to anyone who wants to have a millionaire mind!
