Your Success Thought on "Millionaires"
March 9, 2005

My long time readers know how much I love to read and share insights from particularly good new books. I am currently enjoying T. Harv Eker's Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. (Not a part of the Millionaire Next Door series.)

Eker explores a topic near and dear to my heart in his book--the power of the mind. What fascinates me is no longer how powerful our thoughts are, rather that many of us still fight this reality. Eker description of 'rich' reflects not only money, but rich in life.

"Thoughts lead to feelings. Feelings lead to actions. Actions lead to results. The lesson is simple. If you want to move to a higher level of life, you have to be willing to let go of some of your old ways of thinking and being and adopt new ones."

One particular challenge in his book caught my attention, as I have witnessed this behavior holding people back for years. His challenge is to go for one week without blaming, justifying or complaining. Sound easy? Try it and see for yourself.

"Rich people think a certain way and poor people think completely different way, and those ways of thinking determine their actions and therefore determine their results."

Realizing the energy of those who blame, justify and complain, Eker 'stays as far away from these victims as possible because their negative energy is infectious.' Let's take a closer look at each of these success barriers:

  • Blame: Victims waste valuable time blaming the economy, government, stock market, employer, employees, associates and much more. Instead, rich people focus upon and take full responsibility for creating what they want to create.
  • Justify: If victims aren't blaming, you'll often find them justifying their situation. "The money (love, promotion) wasn't really that important." Rich people look at their current reality and focus upon how to quickly improve it.
  • Complain: Complaining is the absolute worst thing you can do for your health or wealth. When you complain you focus on what is wrong. Since what you focus upon becomes reality, you become a magnet for more things to go wrong.

Another point Eker makes is that 'rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know it all.' In being a dedicated reader of these weekly success thoughts, know that you have a millionaire mind. Why not share the wealth and encourage associates or friends to subscribe? You can grow together.

Take on Eker's challenge to go a full week without blame, justification or complaint. What there is to learn about the way your mind functions?

Have a great week and enjoy your discoveries!
