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.

One thing that I found a bit disturbing is the constant reminder of the Seminar. But I guess that's their way to promote their products.
All in all, great book!
This book has completely changed the way I approach business and life in general. Growing up in a low to middle class neighborhood and being around people who subconsciously want you to fail is more common than I thought. It really hit home when T. Harv Eckar gave the examples of what your parents and friends say to you when growing up. Like how many times have you heard "Money is the root of all evil" or "Money doesn't grow on trees".
This book is a must read if you are starting a business or have ever thought about starting a business. You will go through a complete mind shit.
There are lots of emotional stories and frameworks that you can use immediately. In fact this is more of an "action takers" book. The exercises and actions are right on point.
Fortunately, this book contains what you need to get better results. That's rare and extraordinarily valuable.
T. Harv Eker uses simple examples to provide powerful insights into the psychology behind how wealthy and successful people think vs. those who struggle with money. I won't say that mindset is the only reason why some people are wealthy and others aren't, but after reading this book you'll realize that it is an essential component.
I also recommend this book to anyone interested in personal development because the concepts are universal. It makes you realize just how much of a role your beliefs play in all areas your life, and then you start to question everything you've been taught. You'll begin to notice how all of your thoughts are affecting your life.
For instance, you can read this book and simply change the word "wealth" to "health" (or anything else one wishes to achieve) and you'll find most of the concepts remain the same.
This is one of my top 10 must reads books for success in life, so if you haven't read it, get it.
