Book Review – Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
T. Harv Eker’s book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth is one of my favourite go-to books that I re-read every few years. Each time I pick up this book, I find another little gem to add to my repertoire of financial habits.
I read this book when it first came out in 2005. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is a combination of psychology, wealth, and success in business; it offers examples of affirmations to overcome early-life programming around money and wealth as well as what Harv calls, Millionaire Actions. Harv also shares his own, as well as other people’s stories as examples of what is possible.
Harv writes, ‘If your subconscious “financial blueprint” is not “set” for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make much of a difference.’ So he spends the first fifty or so pages talking about one’s financial blueprint and the different ways rich people think and act than poor people. In the second part of the book which he calls ‘The Wealth Files,’ Harv itemizes Seventeen Ways Rich People Think and Act Differently from Poor and Middle-Class People.
The first principle I implemented was what Harv described as the Financial Freedom jar. As I was on a long-term disability income at the time, I didn’t have very much money to invest, so I would go to the bank and get a roll of nickels. I’d deposit a nickel a day into my jar, and at month’s end I would put whatever change I had in my wallet. Over time there would be enough money to deposit these rolls of coins into my savings account.
“Your income can grow only to the extent that you do.”
~ T. Harv Ekert
This book is focused on helping you transform your mindset and actions for more prosperity and peace of mind.
Like it says at the beginning of the book, “Don’t just read this book. Study it as if your life depended on it. Then try the principles out for yourself. Whatever works, keep doing. Whatever doesn’t, you’re welcome to throw away.”
I highly recommend this book. It can transform your life.
