Eker's claim to fame is that he took a $2,000 credit card loan, opened "one of the first fitness stores in North America," turned it into a chain of 10 within two and a half years and sold it in 1987 for a cool (but somewhat modest-seeming) $1.6 million. Now the Vancouver-based entrepreneur traverses the continent with his "Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar," on which this debut motivational business manual is based. What sets it apart is Eker's focus on the way people think and feel about money and his canny, class-based analyses of broad differences among groups. In rat-a-tat, "Let me explain" seminar-speak, Eker asks readers to think back to their childhoods and pick apart the lessons they passively absorbed from parents and others about money. With such psychological nuggets as "Rich people focus on opportunities/ Poor people focus on obstacles," Eker puts a positive spin on stereotypes, arguing that poverty begins, or rather, is allowed to continue, in one's imagination first, with actual material life becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. To that end, Eker counsels for admiration and against resentment, for positivity, self-promotion and thinking big and against wallowing, self-abnegation and small-mindedness. While much of the advice is self-evident, Eker's contribution is permission to think of one's financial foibles as a kind of mental illness—one, he says, that has a ready set of cures.

Eker, a multimillionaire, teaches us how to become rich. He believes thoughts lead to feelings, which lead to actions, which lead to results, and hence the key to attaining great wealth begins with thinking--like rich people do. He offers new ways of thinking and acting that will lead to new and different results, and he tells us, "Success is a learnable skill. You can learn to succeed at anything." The book emphasizes Eker's 17 principles for amassing wealth, which include: rich people believe that they create their life, while poor people believe "life happens to me." Rich people focus on opportunities, while poor people focus on obstacles. Rich people act in spite of fear, while poor people let fear stop them. Rich people constantly learn and grow, while poor people think they know enough. This is an obvious infomercial for the author's training seminars; however, although many may not agree with all of Eker's ideas, his book offers thought-provoking advice and valuable insight.

Anyway, this book is about acquiring the mindset of successful and/or rich people, or those on the path to success, as well as completely changing your way of thinking (releasing petty thoughts & old, negative patterns). Mr. Eker is big on residual income, and he looks favorably on Network Marketing as one of the vehicles to building wealth over time (this was greatly emphasized during the seminar), along with developing digital information ONLINE products that can sell while you sleep (as he put it). I highly recommend the book AND the seminar.
I hate that he pitches his expensive seminars every few pages......after awhile the entire book just seemed like a desperate infomercial for his other products. Gives the impression that he is now a millionaire because he preys upon the downtrodden and desperate. It is definitely implied that the only way to really learn the method is to take the seminars.
Just two years ago I read this book and it has been a key factor in my business success and my overall happiness and fulfilment. It's helped changed my trajectory from a life of insatiable ambition in which I was addicted to struggle and striving, to a life of ease and plenty. It also got me involved in his seminars, which are truly out-of-this world, inspiring and transformative. Thank you, Harv. I owe the quality of life I now enjoy, in part, to you.
Some of the inspirational stories seemed quite "rehearsed" and tailored for the authors point he was making. Also, the book is a great sales pitch for which the staff writers use to up sell the aforementioned Millionaire Mind Seminar.
Now, dont think I'm complaining....because I will continue to follow the concepts outlined in the book to help me achieve my goals. I am no means a multi-millionaire, but I am on the road to financial independence and can argue that these principles work. Just beaware that it feels somewhat like a sales pitch. Dont let that stop you from finishing the read. I recommend it to everyone. It can change your money blueprint!
