“Think rich to get rich!”

So says T. Harv Eker in his book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. Others who write about the thinking patterns of the rich such as Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, would agree that our “money bluebrint” (thought processes regarding money) has a major impact on our net worth.

I find books on how to think rich entertaining…it’s sort of a reverse Lazarus story. You’d think the rich have halos around their heads. Nevertheless, I also believe these books can be instructional on how to have the proper mindset to receive abundance. There’s nothing wrong with abundance. It’s what you do with it that reflects your character, like being condescending to the poor.

Here are Eker’s “Wealth Files” discussed in Secrets of the Millionaire Mind:

1. Rich people believe, ‘I create my life.’ Poor people believe ‘Life happens to me.’

2. Rich people play the game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose.’

3. Rich people are committed to being rich. Poor people want to be rich.

4. Rich people think big. Poor people think small.

5. Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles.

6. Rich people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people.

7. Rich people associate with positive, successful people. Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people.

8. Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their values. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.

9. Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems.

10. Rich people are excellent receivers. Poor people are poor receivers.

11. Rich people choose to get paid based on results. Poor people choose to get paid based on time.

12. Rich people think “both.” Poor people think “either/or”.

13. Rich people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income.

14. Rich people manage their money well. Poor people mismanage their money.

15. Rich people have money work hard for them. Poor people work hard for their money.

16. Rich people act in spite of fear. Poor people let fear stop them.

17. Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.

    I like those thoughts. Our mindset determines out beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. I spoke recently about how we can discriminate against ourselves if we have limiting beliefs.
