Millionaire Mind - Part 1 of 3
Last night, a friend of mine and I went to a seminar called the Millionaire Mind, which is a based on a book called the Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker.
We were both quite impressed with the information that was presented. These guys had great content and were very good at promoting their company and future seminars. Here are some highlights from the seminar:
We all have a financial blueprint that was developed at an early age. Many people contributed to that blueprint. For example, parents, teachers, and preachers all spoke to us about money during our formative years. The emotions and words that were used in our youth about money (other things as well such as health and happiness) are now manifesting in our conscious and subconscious actions today.
Many of us heard phrases such as "a penny saved is a penny earned", "we can't afford it", "go ask your father", and "money doesn't buy happiness". You'll notice that these are mostly negative phrases. These words and the emotions surrounding financial discussions have played a large part in forming our attitudes about money.
Consider a well-known example of a Financial Blueprint in action. Donald Trump could never be just a Millionaire. In fact, he would be quite unhappy with anything less than being a Billionaire. You may recall that in the 1980s Trump actually lost everything. In fact, he was worse than bankrupt, he was in serious debt. Now, not only has he recovered his Billionaire status, he has much more than he had before he went bankrupt.
There's a reason that most lottery winners end up with nothing after a few short years. Their financial blueprint has not changed, only their bank account. Until we change our blueprint, changes in our financial status will be short-lived.
Remember - How you do anything is how you do everything. How's that working for you?
