In T. Harv Eker’s book, “The Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” in the chapter “Rich people constantly learn and grow, Poor people think they already know,” he says that those who say the three forbidden words are, more often than not, poor, unhappy, or unsuccessful.
What is the difference between a Millionaire Mind and a normal human being besides money? Simple. Millionaire Minds commit 100% of their time, focus, and energy to whatever it is they are doing. On the other hand, normal human beings do not act on their ideas and if they do, they give just enough to get by. That is the main difference between the rich and successful and the poor and unsuccessful – commitment and focus.
When we think about the Millionaire Mind, or the rich in general, we immediately associate them with luxury, power, comfort, unlimited access, and influence. They are Supermen in their own right because their wealth gives them powers normal human beings can only dream about. It is all over the news. This guy bought an entire island for his family. That guy fed hundreds of thousands of children in Africa. This family controls the world’s financial market. This guy is building a space elevator, and so on. These things are Superhuman in my book. If not, it is as close as we can get to be one.
The Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar helped me dig-up the deeply seated self-sabotaging preprogrammed feelings that made me what I am today (and soon not to be). Through the methods taught in the seminar, I have come to discover the “behavioral wrench” in the mental-emotional machinery of my being.
The Millionaire Mind Intensive is a financial literacy course based on the T. Harv Eker’s book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. In a nutshell, it is a book not about the act of making money, which may be in a gamut of ways BUT rather the inner components of making money. It focuses on the internal aspects of making money. It is a compendium of learnings based on observation of the rich, happy, and successful. So, you may be asking what gives? A lot of books are already about that, say Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Well, there are similarities but T. Harv Eker’s Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is first hand, man on the ground, street logic, and procedural. It is not theoretical. This is T. Harv Eker’s own manual to wealth. I will write more extensively about the book in another post.
It is amazing what you can find in BookSale. Likewise, the prices that they are sold at are mind boggling! Today, I found 7 hard bound books with topics ranging from the ‘Psychology of Eating’ to ‘Retracing the Steps of Gengis Khan.’
The whole bunch I acquired for less than P600.00. The cheapest book I have is the biography ‘Roscoe’ for P5.00! It is followed by ‘Charlatan: a Study on America’s Greatest Con Artists’ that is sold for P10.00! Business and motivational books range from P80.00-P160.00. Coolness!
In hindsight, though I am not complaining, histories and studies are priced the lowest. Is it because nobody appreciates them except academics? Does the public prefer fiction over non-fiction? Why? Moreover, if history is the guidepost that ensures our future, what does the general aversion to it say about our society and culture?
Finally, I have Ayn Rand’s ‘Atlas Shrugged’ rare hard bound edition. Despite the rock bottom price I got it for, it is in pristine condition. It is virtually untouched thanks to the lengthy foreword that dissuaded the ‘donor’ from reading it. Thank you soooooo much for the loot, Lorna Lovelace!
Now let’s discuss Nobokov’s ‘Lolita,’ Kerouac, Tim Leary’s ‘The Politics of Ecstasy’ and KLR cameras that you are willing to part with.
Our Cinemalaya project pa pala!
