Beliefs That May Help Your Financial Progress,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I decided to read this book after I heard T. Harv Eker speak on a live teleseminar about his book and course. I was impressed with his speaking style which is good for helping someone shift his or her beliefs. He uses emotions and humor . . . and a fast patter . . . to make it easy to see your views more objectively.
Mr. Eker makes a remarkable offer. Buy this book and you can attend one of his three-day seminars for free. I don't recall ever receiving an offer like that. I assume that he makes his money by selling other services and products at the seminar, but that's fair. Even when you pay thousands for a seminar, there are the inevitable pitches for more offerings.
I figured that it wouldn't hurt to listen to someone who seems to have a talent for helping change beliefs for three days.
I have been to other seminars on similar subjects, such as the one that Tony Robbins used to offer for Mastery University, and have been very disappointed in each case. So my expectations for the book and seminar weren't very high. But the book does seem to be a cut above many of the other "reprogram your assumptions" books to improve your financial situation.
What I liked about the book was that Mr. Eker has identified so many different belief systems that can hold someone back from pursuing prosperity. The heart of the book comes in his 17 contrasts between what rich people believe and what poor people believe. The most fundamental is number one: "Rich people believe 'I create my life.' Poor people believe 'Life happens to me.'" That's a pretty standard prescription for self-improvement authors and trainers.
One that I hadn't thought about before is "Rich people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people." It's pretty hard to work on becoming like someone you resent. That thought caused me to pause.
An unexpected point (which I suspect came from Built to Last) is that "Rich people think 'both.' Poor people think 'either/or.'" I thought that perspective was also new and useful in this context.
None of the other 15 points were unexpected to me. But perhaps if you are new to the idea that rich people think differently than poor people you will find all of these points to be novel. After all, we each have a different row to hoe in life.
The sections are brief and a fast reader can gobble this book down in less than an hour.
But you come away feeling comfortable that Mr. Eker will help you cross the chasm to changing your assumptions about life.
The book's main weakness is the emphasis on the rich-poor contrast. It would have been more helpful to have a stairway of attitudes beginning with billionaires and working on down through the homeless. A book of that sort could help somewhat people expand their financial perspectives to a higher level better than this book does.
Mr. Eker communicates clearly and with credibility. If you are serious about wanting to improve your balance sheet, this book can be a helpful part of the process . . . but think about going to one of those seminars as well. I suspect you'll get far more benefit from the combination than either one alone.
