In my attempt to read more books this year, I’ve come across some real winners and some ho-hum forgettables. Even a mediocre book can sometimes be a welcome break from reality, but what I really love is a book that is so exciting that I actually get an adrenaline rush when I’m reading it. And I’m not talking about the rush that comes with finding out who the killer is or a steamy romance scene. I’m talking about the rush from that AH-HA moment that makes you realize one small tweak to your life could help you achieve your next goal…or the moment you realize that you actually can quit your job and do what you love…or even just deciding what your next pursuit will be. THOSE moments are the best.
So when I tell you Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker should be the next book you read, it’s because it truly will change your life. This is one of those books that is not only worth the read, it’s worth purchasing a hard copy just to reread every single year.
One of my favorite things about this book that makes it really stand out from other “how to build wealth” books is that it doesn’t focus on all of the steps you need to be taking to build wealth (not that those aren’t important). Instead what it focuses on are the thoughts we all have that lead to taking those important steps.
He basically tells you how to reprogram your mind so that all the actionable steps happen naturally. And he lays it out so clearly and obviously that you’ll be slapping your forehead every other page when you realize how much we hold ourselves back. It is truly amazing how a tiny adjustment to our thoughts can have life changing implications!
After going over some pretty eye-opening facts about how each of us develops our own unique style of managing money, Eker lays out SEVENTEEN different essential beliefs that are critical for achieving a true “millionaire mindset.” Even if you’re a total expert (or a millionaire already), I guarantee at least a few of these will be game-changers for you.
So go read Secrets of the Millionaire Mind! It’s impossible for it to not change your life. 🙂
