In Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and "revise" it to not only create success, but more importantly, to keep and continually grow it. Finally, you will be introduced to the "Wealth Files": 17 specific ways rich people think and act. These include specific action steps for you to practice in order to increase your income and accumulate wealth. It's simple, if you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you'll get rich too!

But he acknowledges that.
I really liked this book. I'm not sure if it will help me get rich or not, time will tell, but I think it will help regardless.
One thing he says repeatedly that I agree with - whether I do get rich of not - it's up to me.
This is not a technique book, i.e., a book that says this is how you buy real estate or stocks or own a business or whatever.
What he says is that you need to program your mind to allow you to be successful in doing those types of things, or whatever vehicle it is that you choose to get rich.
One point he brings up[ continually is that he's rich, you're not, and this is the foundation he set up for himself and other rich people have set up for themselves to get rich.
The people who didn't like the book I suspect are not rich, and so have no basis to claim that what he says isn't true.
In fact much of what he said rings very true for me, in that it's more about attitude and desire rather than technique.
In fact, he claims that all the technique in the world won't help you get rich without the proper attitude towards money and making money.
Witness lottery winners who can't hold onto their money - they don't have the "rich" mindset, and most times find themselves back to the level of wealth that they had before their lottery winnings.
The book is about the Millionaire mind, not the "Techniques and strategies that made millionaires millionaires."
I highly recommend it. Even if in the end you choose not to get rich, I think there are some valuable life lessons that apply to everyday life regardless of one's aspirations.
I bought this and I found it excellent. It's over three hours long. I'm not drinking the kool-aid, either. I'm an entrepreneur with a passion for self improvement. I grew up with parents that provided poor role models for money, great role models for love and compassion. My Dad was born in the Depression and he never got over it. My Mom never met a dollar she didn't want to spend. I've worked hard to retrain my "programming" for the last five to seven years and my financial condition has improved gradually (not dramatically, but gradually and significantly), to the point now where I'm comfortable, but not yet "wealthy". I'm looking to break through to the next level.
This guy's insight is terrific and on-target. Some of the negative reviews written here are obviously not from people who listened to anything but the promo sound clip. If they did, they would have heard more content than they alluded to in their reponses. Much more.
This guy tells it like it is. If you're prepared to hear direct truth about how poor, middle and high income people think, then buy it. The two other books that profoundly changed my life are 1) Think and Grow Rich (Napolean Hill) and 2) Cash Flow Quadrant (Part of the Rich Dad/Poor Dad series by Robert Kiyosaki). This one's my new # 3.
Some key statements in this book:
To someone who says "Money isn't important" he replies, "You're broke, aren't you? And you have been broke for a long period of time, haven't you?"
Regarding aspiring to be "comfortable":
"You will never be rich or happy if you aspire to be comfortable. Aspire to be uncomfortable, to be in a continuous state of personal growth."
This book has given me more to change my life than anything I've experienced in a long time.
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!
Previous reviews seem to indicate that either you love or hate this audio book. I can see why. I believe it is hard to argue with the information he presents ... all good stuff right on target and very complete. What really sets this apart is the way it is presented and the way he tries to get it cemented into your brain. T. Harv Eker has a very unique style of presentation and teaching. Part silly, part sarcastic, part in your face, although never lacking in energy.
If you like the presentation style, I believe you will love this offering (which I did.) However it is easy to see how he could rub some people the wrong way. I wish I could think of a litmus test to tell you if you would be one that likes him or not but nothing comes to mind. So it comes down to paying your money and taking your chances. You will know very quickly in whether you will turn out happy or not. I turned out happy.
I write very few reviews but this one is so great I had to say something. This guy is straight out of a “MUST READ NOW” genera that it just screams at you. It isn’t about being a Millionaire but about being a higher level person. It takes so much talent and ability to accumulate a million dollars and more. To do this you have to be a much higher functioning person. This book gives you the tools to do that and far more.
I highly recommend this book because I have read hundreds of books on success and none have resonated with me more than this one. It is almost like being slapped in the face and having someone say, “DO IT!”
High quality and high value product that will really change your life forever. You will think differently and look for more opportunities than ever before. If you have ever wanted to do a thing but where kind of wondering,,,,, DO IT! Listen to this book and share it with everyone you know. We all have one life so lets make it AWESOME and get there faster with this book.
Thanks T. Harv Eker. I have 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.
I have quite a few audio books now, and Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is my favorite. I find little gems every time I listen. It's a great book for getting you fired up, getting you thinking, and getting you to take action. 5-stars all the way!
T. Harv Eker shares some of the greatest secrets I have ever heard of the inner game of becoming a millionaire in this book. It's clear from listening to the audiobook that Harv has a passion for the topic and that is incredibly motivating for the listener.
I particularly enjoyed how the secret wealth files are shared - they are clear and very informative. I took almost twelve pages of notes listening to this! Awesome stuff!
For anyone who wants to make more money this information is pure gold. I highly recommend it.
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
