It is comforting to know that there are people out there that think the same way I do and Harv Eker’s The Millionaire Mind covers many topics I’ve covered here on my blog over the past year. If I ever sat down to write a book, it might nearly be The Millionaire Mind almost word for word!

I’ll get the suspense out of the way, EVERYONE should buy this book; if you don’t have any money, go to your local library to check it out or ask for it as a birthday present. The book explores what really keeps people from getting rich: Themselves!

I wrote recently a compilation of the top 10 excuses I’ve personally heard over the year why people weren’t getting rich and Harv pretty much covers them all in his book. Harv, however, delves into the psychology behind the excuses and his findings are quite profound. The entire principle of the book starts with each person’s money blueprint.

The environment you grew up in provides the foundation for how you’ll live the rest of your financial life. If you had a religious upbringing in which your parents instilled in you that wealth was evil then there is a high likelihood that you’ll feel the same way about money and handicap your potential financial success.
One of the things I love about the book however are the “wealth principles” scattered throughout the book.

Here are some gems:

You income can grow only to the extend that you do.

The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the same way, the only way to change your level of financial success “permanently” is to reset your financial thermostat.

If your goal is to be comfortable, chances are you’ll never get rich. But if your goal is to be rich, chances are you’ll end up mighty comfortable.

I won’t write much more about the book because I think everyone should read it and I’m certain that everyone will find a reflection of themselves in at least one of the chapters in this book.
