Read T Harv Eker's 'Secrets of the Millionaire Mind to attract wealth', Malcolm Gladwell's 'The Tipping Point' to understand how a trend is set and Judith Wright's 'The One decision' to value the affect of decisions one takes If there is one book I would perhaps like to be buried with it is T Harv Eker's 'Secrets of the Millionaire Mind'. The easy going style with which Eker writes is enough to win him a string of admirers, yet it is the 17 principles which Eker likens to computer files is what is supposed to set rich and poor people apart. Our minds are pretty much like the memory space of a computer and there are certain "files" that get stored in them thanks to a life time of social conditioning. Considering I'm concentrating on only three books a week, I can happily take the liberty of speaking about each book in detail. So here is me, going to list out the 17 principles which quite frankly had a certain eureka effect on me. Oprah Winfrey calls this the "Aha! Moment", when something finally dawns on you. If you understand these 17 principles, you will pretty much understand why you are in a certain financial bracket and what your monetary future holds for you. These computer programs in our head have been titled "Wealth Files" as in the files we have stored in our respective heads with regard to wealth. There is a definite distinction given with regard to how "poor people" and "rich people" think and therein lies all the difference between a life of prosperity or poverty. So here goes�. Wealth File 1 � Rich people believe "I create my life�" Poor people believe, "Life happens to me�" All of us at one level like to portray ourselves as victims and the three common traits among victims are blame, justifying and complaining. The explanation that goes with each is written in such a witty style, Eker can neatly leave Chetan Bhagat behind. Wealth File 2 � Rich people play the money game to win, poor people play the money game not to lose. Wealth File 3 � Rich people are committed to being rich. Poor people want to be rich. Wealth File 4 � Rich people think big, poor people think small. Wealth File 5 � Rich people focus on opportunities and poor people focus on obstacles. Wealth File 6 - Rich people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people. Wealth File 7 � Rich people associate with positive, successful people. Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people. Wealth File 8 � Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion. Wealth File 9 � Rich people are bigger than their problems, poor people are smaller than their problems. Wealth File 10 � Rich people are excellent receivers, poor people are poor receivers. Here Eker states, that many people understand the value of giving, but somewhere the ability to receive graciously is also important. Wealth File 11 � Rich people choose to get paid based on results, poor people choose to get paid based on time. Wealth File 12 � Rich people think "both" poor people think "either/or" Wealth File 13 � Rich people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income. Wealth File 14 � Rich people manage their money well, poor people mismanage their money well. Wealth File 15 � Rich people have their money work hard for them. Poor people work hard for their money. Wealth File 16 � Rich people act inspite of fear, Poor people let fear stop them. Wealth File 17 � Rich people constantly learn and grow, poor people think they already know. With that thought I would like to wrap up my book review except that I'd like to make a passing mention of Malcolm Gladwell's 'The Tipping Point'. I've only just begun reading it, (or rather I am halfway through it) and the basic crux of the book is that it takes just a handful of people to start a trend or popularise something such that the scale "tips" and from being unknown something is declared a best seller or a rage. Quite interesting, isn't it? And finally we have Judith Wright's 'The One decision' that speaks about the fact that sometimes it is just one decision that can make all the difference in the quality of one's life. Pretty profound, don't you think?!
