I was speaking with a friend a while ago and mentioned that I was finding it hard to stay disciplined with daily tasks. I had good intentions but consistent effort remained elusive. My friend recommended that I check out Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. It had helped my friend with his daily routine and to take consistent effort towards his goals. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind was not a book that I had been familiar with but reading it has had a profound impact on my life.
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind explores a fairly simple concept. If you want to create lasting wealth, you need have the right head space to do so. The book is separated into 3 main sections: understanding your money blueprint; understanding the difference in how rich people think in comparison with others; and lastly, what to do with this knowledge. I found the second section, in particular, which examines how rich people think in comparison with poor and middle-class to be a revelation. While I recognized that there was difference in how rich people thought compared to poor people, I never really considered how they think compared to middle-class people.
Caught in the Middle
When you are middle-class, you may still want to be wealthy but you are too comfortable to take regular action. To overcome this, the author stresses the importance of routine. Essentially, you work towards something on a regular basis in spite of mood, fear, doubt, diminished motivation or other potential roadblocks. For me, this has translated into committing to work on my blog and other daily tasks, irrespective of how I am feeling. It’s a simple concept, but pretty powerful as you end up getting a lot done and the results of this compound over time. Admittedly, this is a topic that has been discussed in many other books, but for some reason, seeing it presented here along with Harv Eker’s reasoning, really made the message resonate.
Big Benefits in a Small Package
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is small in size and at less than 200 pages is a fairly easy read. You could knock it over in a few days, BUT the real benefit of this book is if you revisit it on a regular basis. I actually read a few pages from this book as part of my daily routine and I have found this to be really worthwhile to keep me disciplined and attacking my daily tasks. I actually just finished reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind for the third time and will start rereading shortly. I hope I have managed to convey how beneficial this book has been for me personally. I would love to hear your thoughts on Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and this review. Let me know.
