Book Review – The One Minute Millionaire
The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen is a uniquely written book. It is two books in one. Created for both left-brained (logical learners), and right-brained (artistic readers) people. Read in one direction, the book is definitely a non-fiction, logical style with bullets and ‘reminder’ points. Read in the other direction, the same message is presented as a novel without all the ‘interruptions’ found in the logical learning style. I’ve read the book in both directions several times.
First off, for those who are anti-money, anti-greed this book isn’t about ‘just’ money. The subtitle says, “The enlightened way to wealth.” Wealth encompasses so much more than money. Wealth includes one’s family, health, friends and spiritual values. As the authors write, “An abundance of these four life dimensions constitutes true wealth.” Therefore, my understanding is that one can’t just chase money and that is not what this book teaches.
Multi-millionaires in their own right, the authors write that their goal is to create 1,000,000 millionaires. Hansen and Allen lay out their ‘proven system’ for creating wealth in an ethical manner and offer to be your mentors along the way through their book.
This book is a result of observations of their own lives and their student’s lives that have certain characteristics which the vast majority of millionaires have in common:
- You must adopt the millionaire mind-set (a distinct set of wealth-creating attitudes and beliefs).
- You must implement millionaire techniques and strategies.
Topics covered range from understanding and using leverage, finding and uniting with mentors, the importance of teams and networks, skills and tools, and systems. They also write about investing in real estate and creating businesses.
A couple of the most interesting aspects of the book were: you have one minute to decide to take a new path; the other was to watch for opportunities which will generally come in threes. (I use this concept to the effect of, “if more than one person tells you something, it may have a little bit of truth to it.”)
This book is in no way offering a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. It takes dedication, commitment, planning, carefully designed ‘systems’ and focused action which the authors point the way.
Every few years I re-read this book and I always find one more piece of the puzzle to implement into my life. I highly recommend this book.
