SECRETS OF THE MILLIONAIRE MIND
                    T. HARV EKER

The author captures your attention from the very beginning with the statement "Give me five minutes with anyone and I can predict their financial future for the rest of their life".  How can he do this you ask?  The answer is by identifying what he calls your money blueprint.  Mr. Eker makes a comparison between a money blueprint and a house blueprint.  When you have a blueprint for a house, it is a preset plan to design the house.  The money blueprint is a preset plan in relation to your money.

The book is broken down into two main sections.  Part one is "Your Money Blueprint" which determines your financial destiny and Part two is "The Wealth Files" which the author defines as seventeen ways rich people think and act differently from poor and middle-class people.

The author states your financial blueprint consists of your thoughts, feelings and actions in the arena of money.  How is your financial blueprint formed?  It is done by the information and/or programming you received as you were growing up.  If you think about it, you were told how to think and act when it comes to money.  These teachings become your conditioning.  The first teaching is called "verbal programming".  We have all heard statements such as "money is the root of all evil", "save your money for a rainy day", etc.  These statements remain in your subconscious mind and become part of your financial blueprint.  As a result this subconscious thinking will determine your actions. 

The author lists four key elements of change which consist of awareness, (you can't change something unless you know it exists) understanding (you must know where your thinking came from) disassociation (once you decide this isn't your way of thinking a decision has to be made as to whether to keep it or let it go) and reconditioning (retraining your mind).  This is what Part 2 teaches you to do.

The author has written this book in a manner that is easy for all to understand.  He gives detailed instructions on how to identify our money blueprint and how to revise it in order to be successful.  If you give some thought to the author's points, it does make sense.  All through our lives we are instilled with many concepts about finances.  These thoughts are left in our mind even though they may not be our thoughts.  The author's main point is if we want to see financial success, we have to do something about it.  If we want to see change, this is a must.  So if you want to make a change in your financial blueprint, this is a must read book.  You will not be sorry.
