I've implemented the money management techniques mentioned in the book, and it's been great. The financial balance this book brings was much needed in my life.
This is not a get rich quick book or business book really. It's really a money book that focuses on financial balance, rather than just investing or money management. The concept of a splurge fund was new to me, but it's been great to implement.
The fun I have spending money from my splurge account motivates me to make more money so that I can have more fun :) And I don't feel guilty about spending the money, because I have other money budgeted for investing, savings, and giving.
This book really will change your life if you do the steps. So far I zip lined on the highest zip line in the world, and went skydiving with my wife. Next we're going on an overnight trip somewhere so that our 4 year old boys can fly on an airplane for the first time.
Get the book and do the steps. You won't be disappointed.
I RECOMMEND YOU BUY FROM ROBERT KIYOSAKI Books, or in other words go to Richdad.com or search on Amazon for Richdad Poordad, those are great books they helped me alot, unlike this guy who gives you nothing but worthless words.
However, if you have struggled to earn more or keep more of what you earn, you might find the same thing I did: Our money blueprint, like a thermostat, will hold us back from earning more unless we understand what our money thermostat is set to, and more importantly, why it's set where it is. This book has opened my eyes to much of the programming that has been running in my and my wife's subconscious. Within a matter of days after taking to heart the principles of this book, as if by magic, I started closing more sales, thinking about my business very differently, and lo and behold, having more cash in my bank (business and personal) than I ever had in my previous 15 years of marriage, or ever for that matter. I didn't have to attend his seminar, though many reviewers say this book is only a sales pitch to his seminar. I didn't start a new business, or go into network marketing (which has always been turned off).
I also didn't just sit my butt on the couch and vision-board my way to more money. Instead, I have worked my tail off in the last few months more than I have in years but I've enjoyed it like never before, all while having more time with my wife and kids (both-and vs either-or).
I read and listened to the book 4 or 5 times now and continue to challenge my beliefs and attitudes about money and by doing that, changing how I show up for everything. For example, I had an unspoken belief that I don't deserve to earn more than minimum living standards, so even though I believe my business's services are top tier, I showed up to sales with little to no energy and as if I didn't believe in my own service. If I did make sales, I somehow found ways to get rid of the money by hiring staff unnecessarily, or "investing" in things that didn't drive my personal or business growth forward. Like a thermostat that was set at a certain level, no matter how much came in, I figured out a way to get rid of it without even realizing why I was doing it so that I only had just above minimum living standards. But when I became aware of this belief, and realized it wasn't true, I started closing more sales, being more prudent with how I allocated my money, and noticing different opportunities within the business to improve and grow.
So who is this book for?
It's certainly not for those who will only see this book as a sales pitch for his seminar. Don't get me wrong, he mentions his workshop 1000 times in the book LOL! But if you can't see past that, and throw the baby out with the bathwater, than you might have some blind spots that need to be worked out before you pass judgement on this book. Again, I say this as someone who has ONLY read this book and not paid for any of this training, coaching, seminars, products, etc.
It's also not for anyone who is looking for something more than principles. This book teaches you high-level concepts about the wealth mindset of wealthy people and puts it in terms that anyone can understand. For example, most of us are taught to work hard for your money, some of us are taught to save, and few are taught to make your money work hard for you through investments. This was an eye-opener for my wife, but for me it wasn't. It was just a reminder of what I have already known. How to invest, who to go into business with, how to hire, which network marketing to join, how to ask for more money, get better at sales, manage your business, details about building out systems, none of that is addressed in detail in this book. For that, you'll need to find additional resources from other authors. Unless T Harv Eker offers follow up books or "dip your toes in the water" low cost offers. As of this writing, I don't know if he offers any of these. I know for sure other authors provide you more detailed tools and tactical concepts not found in this book.
This book is for individuals who are stuck in their efforts to grow their wealth even when they have invested incredible amounts of time and money on pursuits that haven't panned out. It's for anyone who's tired of working the hamster wheel and not sure how to get off.
This book is for you if you want to know how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Hint: it's not about opportunities --- though I won't deny that the wealthier you become, the more opportunities present themselves but I would counter that they have more opportunities because they've acted upon previous opportunities and applied a positive money mindset to those opportunities.
May this book open the door to a whole new world that awaits you on the other side. I've accumulated more money in the last 4 months, in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, than I ever did during two prior bull markets and even when earning more money. May the principles of this book do tenfold and hundredfold for you as it has done for me, whether you're in your twenties and fresh out of college, like me entering your 40's and wondering if the work you do has any meaning, or in your sixties wondering if it's too late.
It's NEVER too late. Unless you never take that first step.
