I enjoyed this Audio so much that I went out and bought the book. This is an Audio book that I plan to listen to over and over again. The author has a lot of great points that make so much sense. It really does teach you how to start thinking in a successful way.
I wanted to believe - in Harv Eker - I really did. I have read many books on wealth building and self-improvement, and I have been very successful by following the principles taught by authors such as Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Napolean Hill, and Robert Kiyosaki, among others. I have applied their principles and found that they work. But these other authors provide something that Mr. Eker does not - substance.
The first 187 pages of this book are filled with shallow generalities and soundbites such as: "Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems." I don't disagree, but there is nothing to back up these simple "wealth principles" and little in the way of direction for implementation.
Still, this book could be an adequate primer for those who have had no introduction to the genres of wealth-building and self-improvement -- except for the continual pleadings to visit the author's website and attend his seminars. Yes, I know that authors in many fields often write books as a means to promote themselves and their other products, but I have never seen a book, other than giveaway promotionals, that so blatantly pushed the author's other products while providing so little in return. Like an infomercial, this book continually tells you what you could experience if you would only attend his seminar. And all those website freebies promised throughout the book? You must give him your name and e-mail address before he'll let you in. And after you do that, you must provide a credit card and pay a $100 deposit for that free seminar.
I'm returning my book tomorrow and getting my money back. For the same amount of money you can get BOTH "Maximum Achievement" (Brian Tracy) AND "Think and Grow Rich" (Napolean Hill). Neither is an infomercial in disguise.
Oh, and what comes after those first 187 pages of fluff? A five-page invitation to visit the registration-required website and attend the credit card-required seminar, a four-page advertorial for the same seminar (still no mention of a credit card here), a two-page lecture to "share the wealth" by committing to tell at least one hundred people about the book (or buy the book for them!), and a four-page list of seminars, home learning programs, and instructions on how you can hire Harv to speak at your own event.
Come on, Harv - I don't fault you for building your own wealth through seminars, CDs and speaking engagements, but please don't charge us $20 for your catalog. Give us something we can use!
This is a great listen. Harv is a terrific presenter.
He mixes his past experience, humor, and logic to make sense of why we get the results we get.
He presents simple concepts that urge you to change your thinking to change your results. It is one of those audios you can listen to again and again to reinforce great ideas or hear ones you missed. Never boring not even the 10th time. Like any self help book You must practice it to see profound results, but even if you dont make all of the changes overnight it does help to understand why we do the things we do.We can reprogram our programming if that's what we choose to do!
This is an incredible book; his seminar is even more incredible. He reaches within the depths of your soul and challenges your every belief. Eker is entertaining and trustworthy. His principles make sense and his writing style is easy to absorb. I immediately started putting some of his principles into my daily life; and although I cannot say that right now I am wealthy, I am making changes every day to get closer and closer --before I ever heard of Eker, I wasn't even on the path. Eker pointed me to that path, and now it's up to me to walk it. You will not regret listening to this book. Listen to it again and again and make every effort to go to his millionaire mind seminar!
I could not stand the tone of how the book was read.
I was barely able to get though this book. The author reads the book with a very condescending tone. The tone of this book is, “if you’re not a millionaire you must be an idiot that’s why your reading this book.” It seemed like he assumed that everyone reading this book was dirt poor and unable to handle their own personal finances. I thought the some concepts were overly simplified like rich people own businesses...think like a millionaire business owner not an employee...duh. Nothing earth shattering here.
While I wish everyone that has read this book success on their way to making millions, I cannot recommend this book. Check out Rich Dad Poor Dad or Think and Grow Rich before you buy this book.
You get loads of the same rah rah, raise your hands in the air style info over and over again. No real learning or teaching points. The crowd interaction is super annoying after a while.
Provide more teaching and educational information, rather than just raving on and on about having the right attitude - tell us what to do with this attitude, not how to find it.
Disappointment, annoyance with the content. Inability to hear the whole thing out.
Maybe this stuff works on some people but it certainly put me off attending one of his seminars.
Listen over and over, it will shake you up, by pointing you in a new productive direction......
Take action, buy, listen and enjoy
This audio is absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend it for everyone that wish to have their desires, goals and needs granted by the Universal energy. Awesome!
"I got goose bumps listening". It was certainly the most practical approach I ever heard about why people get stuck and not achieve success in their lives in one way or another. I'll certainly keep listening to it month after month until I am fully conditioned and become a millionaire! Thanks, Harv.
