Business Thought

T. Harv Eker

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?
Whatever your inward thoughts you accept about yourself, you will ultimately express outwardly in your actions. Because of this, it’s important to monitor what types of thoughts you allow to shape your reality. If you’d ultimately like to be wealthy through real estate, it will help you to understand the difference between how poor people think in comparison to the rich people of this world.

In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives.

You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money – and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it!
In the book T. Harv Eker says that people who are wealthy think different in 17 specific ways.

Rich people believe “I create my life”.
Poor people believe “Life happens to me”.

Rich people play the money game to win.
Poor people play the money game to not lose.

Rich people are committed to being rich.
Poor people want to be rich.

Rich people think big.
Poor people think small.

Rich people focus on opportunities.

Rich people admire other rich and successful people.
Poor people resent rich and successful people.

Rich people associate with positive, successful people.
Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people.

Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value.
Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.
Rich people are bigger than their problems.
Poor people are smaller than their problems.

Rich people are excellent receivers.
Poor people are poor receivers.

Rich people choose to get paid based on results.
Poor people choose to get paid based on time.

Rich people think “both”.
Poor people think “either/or”.

Rich people focus on their net worth.
Poor people focus on their working income.

Rich people manage their money well.
Poor people mismanage their money well.
Rich people have their money work hard for them.
Poor people work hard for their money.

In order for you to become successful, it’s important to understand this great lesson.
Jim Rohn said this and he was right, “Profits are better than wages. Wages can make you a living. Profits can make you a fortune.” Nobody wants to spend the rest of their life working at a job they don’t even like for mediocre pay. Isn’t it about time you took a control of your own financial future if you haven’t already?

The Shocking answer is: None of the above!

If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people, think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too!

Go For Your Big Dreams!

Remember when you were a kid and felt you could set the world on fire? Millionaire? Sure. Hollywood star? Of course! Astronaut? Easy. Best-selling author? No problem. World traveler? Start packing.

So what happened? Where are you now? Are you living the life you thought you’d lead? Unfortunately, life has a way of knocking the stuffing out of our highest hopes and biggest dreams…

if we let it! Most people have lost the sparkle in their eyes and the fire in their hearts. They’ve lost their passion and allowed their lives to become a faint glimmer of the vibrant vision they once had for themselves. They’ve committed the great sin of the spirit and settled for a life of mediocrity.

The main reason most of us lose our dreams is not because our desire has waned, but because of fear. “I don’t have the money, I don’t have the time, it’s too late, I don’t know for sure if I can do it.”

All of these reasons are nothing but the excuses of a fear and lack based protective mind.

It’s time to take back your power; time to think big once again; time to rekindle your greatest dreams. Dreams that excite you, dreams that impassion you, dreams that force you to break the bonds of “mediocrity”; reach your fullest potential and become the “ultimate you.”


Today, list the big dreams you had from the past or invent exciting new ones! Come from power versus fear.

Start thinking about what you “can” do instead of what you “can’t” do.

Commit, then focus on one step at a time and begin immediately!

I consistently take action on my big dreams.
