A former coach of mine – T. Harv Eker known for his successful wealth creation programs, believed that “If I just get into the right business, get on the right horse, I’ll make it.” But the problem with that was he did not make it. He did not get into the right business and neither did he get on the right horse. But one thing, he struck to was, “I’ll make it.” Those words inspired me to go and learn what he had to teach.
Harv Eker proved to himself and others that to become rich you need to think rich. If you think poor, you remain poor. I wanted to get rich, become financially free and stay that way. So I went and learned about wealth creation.
Let me share a few of those things that I learnt from T. Harv Eker’s “Millionaire Mind” wealth creation sessions.
You need to have the confidence in yourself. No matter what, you are going to make it. That is essential to your thinking. That is the foundation for your future. You cannot continue to think poor and then want to be rich. Build that confidence and you are on your way to wealth creation.
You need to learn. Learn from those who are successful at wealth creation and emulate them. But imitating is not enough. Like the tree that withers away without proper nourishment, you wouldn’t be able to succeed if you continue to go on with your ‘think poor’ mode. You need to learn new things and adopt them. In other words you need to unlearn to “thinking poor” and learn to create wealth.
Thoughts lead to feelings. Feelings lead to actions. Actions in turn lead to results. If you associate wealth creation is bad beyond a certain point, you are programming yourself to become poor and most likely you are going to stay poor. Think plenty, get rich and share your joy. That is the attitude you need to be adopting for wealth creation.
It is not enough if you want to become rich. If you think that wealth creation is my goal, then that is an abstract thought. It is like saying I want to fly. But to where? Where do you want to reach? And then do what? I want to become a millionaire is something distinctive. You are not being vague. You know you want to be rich and make certain amount of money. That certain amount of money is a million. You have defined that you want to be rich and you have defined that you want to be a millionaire. Creating wealth is your goal.
Rich people create their life. Others let life happen to them. That is the difference. Your attitude makes all the difference. You are in an elevator. It is up to you to push the button. It could be the top most floor or the next floor. Your altitude depends on your attitude.
You play not to lose but you play to win. That is the essential difference between winning, getting rich and staying rich. You are also committed to staying rich and that leads you to creating massive wealth.
So there are just a few of the things that I learned from attending T. Harv Eker’s Millionaire Mind Intensive sessions and his wealth creation programs.
