You can choose to think in ways that will support you in your happiness and success instead of ways that don’t. – by T. Harv Eker
A few months ago my former classmate Israel D. Basilio told me in an email that there are only two books that he has really read from the beginning to end, and that I must read them as well. One of the books he highly recommended is the book written by T. Harv Eker’s Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. According to him it was really a life-changing book and “perhaps you may share it with your readers”.
Intrigued as I usually am, I put a hold through the online public library system on T. Harv Eker’s book and in a few days I was able to read it all! A few months have passed and I wanted to reread it, so instead of hopping back to the library I decided to go to the local bookstore and get myself a copy of it! Surprisingly, on the very first page is the signature of T. Harv Eker (live signature and not stamped version!), which made me want to do the next step, which is to share with you the wealth files of this book!
As the title implies, these wealth files are the secrets why millionaires are who they are, millionaires – and I would like to share them with you:
Wealth File #1: Rich people believe, “I create my life.” Poor people believe “Life happens to me.”
Wealth File #2: Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose.
Wealth File #3: Rich people are committed to being rich. People want to be rich.
Wealth File #4: Rich people think big. Poor people think small.
Wealth File #5: Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles.
Wealth File #6: Rich people admire other rich and succesful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people.
Wealth File #7: Rich people associate with positive, successful people. Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people.
Wealth File #8: Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.
Wealth File #9: Rich people are bigger than their problem. Poor people are smaller than their problems.
Wealth File #10: Rich people are excellent receivers. Poor people are poor receivers.
Wealth File #11: Rich people choose to get paid based on results. Poor people choose to get paid based on time.
Wealth File #12: Rich people think “both.” Poor people think “either/or.”
Wealth File #13: Rich people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income.
Wealth File #14: Rich people manage their money well. Poor people mismanage their money well.
Wealth File #15: Rich people have their money work hard for them. Poor people work hard for their money.
Wealth File #16: Rich people act in spite of fear. Poor people let fear stop them.
Wealth File #17: Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.
To read each of these files and understand them fully, you may want to consider grabbing a copy of the book either in your library or through the bookstore. Also, it is important to completely follow T. Harv Eker’s definition of the rich and the poor people when reading these words.
As you finish this post, I would like to share with you how T. Harv Eker ends his wealth file page and he writes his wealth declaration (and I would like to do as well):
“Touch your head and say….I have a millionaire mind!”
And YOU do!
