I got the book based on the description thinking it was going to tell you the "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind". Basically the author just talks about how smart he is and how you should save you money to attend his seminars (he emphasizes that you will never be a millionaire if you don't attend his seminar). The format was not very good since it did not list any facts about the millionaires that were interviewed for the book. The author repeats himself over and over again with passion about nothing. He does mention you can learn the facts about the millionaire mind by attending his 3 day workshop. Unfortunately, the secrets of the millionaire mind aren?t in the book called "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind".
Having been to more 'ra ra' seminars than you can wave a stick at, I haven't bothered for years figuring 'Just get on with it and do your best'. This is actually really refreshing stuff. Basic, down to earth and to the point. Not positive thinking, reality thinking. I recommend it. It's fun to listen to as well.
There's nothing super-specific in this book as it's mainly motivational. I liked it anyway. If you've read "The Secret" then this book might seem like a logical extension of some of the principles and thought patterns from the money chapter. I did not like the chanting, ritualistic "now repeat after me," phrases.
Secrets of a Millionaire Mind is a must for anyone
who wants to speed their way to financial success.
I love the right to the point approach the
author uses to get his message across. This is a
book that's worthy of nothing less than Five Stars
Yes. I have already recommended it to friends that are actively seeking financial growth. It is different from others because it is all about what YOU and ONLY YOU can do for your future and then proceeds to say HOW to do it & why.
Liked the direct approach. Did not like the narrator. Sounded like the stereotypical used car salesman - then, I got used to it - kept telling myself that it's only 3 hours and it may be worth it to hang in there. It was worth it, and, by the end, he seemed more like a brother-in-law.
"It's all about YOU"
this book has more to do with someone who is lazy and not motivated, than it does the teaching of strategies or successful business moves. and about a third of the book is him plugging his seminars that he would like you to visit in person. my suggestions are to buy the book used online, highlight the key points and put it on the book shelf for re visiting.
Yes, this book incorporates so many things from Napolean Hill to the secret to Tony Robins. Very encouraging. I would strongly recommend this book , somethings may seem cheese but its worth it... Believe and you will accomplish
I don't know if I've ever done anything differently based on Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, but I listen to it every six months or so just because it's fun. Eker is just plain entertaining to listen to, and it's clear how he's gotten rich(er) as a motivational speaker. He has some very memorable concepts. For example, I grew up in a military family where dinner five nights out of seven was some kind of chicken, and Eker's rant against ordering the chicken really resonated with me. It's also a bit different from your typical financial self-help book in the emphasis it places on the mental game; kind of like The Best Life Diet for money. The book is to some extent an advertisement for the seminar, which to be fair it offers free tickets for. After the fifth time I listened to the book, I signed up just because I think it'll be fun. I don't see myself spending $1,000's on any of his advanced seminars, but I'm pretty sure it'll be an enjoyable weekend.
One star off on performance for the Canadian accent. Sorry, Harv, but "sorry" and "borrow" just distracted me every time you said them, because I am a xenophobic American.
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.
