Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T Harv Ecker

Property Tribes Book of the Month, May 2013

Money and Your MindSecrets of the Millionaire Mind review on Property Tribes

Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind: Think rich to get richSecrets of the Millionaire Mind, by T. Harv Ecker guides you to explore underlying beliefs and habits that contribute to the way you manage your money, introducing the concept of the “money blueprint”. There are a lot of mindset gems in here around the subject of money and most people are likely to find something useful.

The book is helpful for working on your financial mindset as T. Harv Ecker delves into the psychology of money, guiding you to identify:

  • your own beliefs about the subject of money
  • conditioning you learned from others during childhood and formative years
  • experiences that have contributed to the way you manage money.

It is very American in style though. I have the audio version of this and find it somewhat “rah rah rah” in style. By the tenth time I have pointed at my heart and head and said “I have a millionaire mind” out loud – advisable to do this when you’re on your own – my eyes are beginning to roll. I understand the reasons for “going through the motions” as it were, as action helps to embed new conditioning to our brains, with the aim of having a positive effect on our thoughts and behaviours. My personal view is that such actions tend to have more impact and are thus more effective when done in the heightened atmosphere of a group training session, rather than doing them on one’s own at home or in the car.

If you don’t like a strong American audio narrative style, read the book instead. The book may also be better for doing some of the exercises.

Essential for property investors? Probably not. Helpful? Definitely. Especially if your money seems to disappear one way or another as quickly as it appears.

Update 01 May 2013: Since writing the above, I have read the printed version for the Property Tribes book of the month for May review – it’s waaaayyy better than the audio!
