How to Thrive - Learning to use your Millionaire Mindset

Release your Millionaire Mind to do what's natural

A review of T. Harv Eker's "Secrets to the Millioniaire Mind"

Harv Eker's "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind"
After years of studying self-help classics (modern and distant), I can tell you how the mind works and how easy it is to change. So when I finally settled down to study what made millionaire minds free to do their "abundance-as-usual" routines the choice of Eker was obvious. 

I took up Eker's book to simply distill what and how he approached helping people to change their "money thermostat" and start making the millions or billions they always wanted to - but were never able. 

When he points out that people are pre-programmed to only achieve a limited income, he's right. This has been known for years, from Earl Nightingale and Napoleon Hill on - but you'll see that people have been being trained to under-achieve for centuries. Our modern culture just put it's own slant on it. 

T. Harv Eker - Lessons by Email
How Eker gets you to re-train your millionaires mind isn't all that new. But he took up the study of millionaire and rich-people psychology in earnest so solve his own inability to make and hold onto money. 

I could bore you with a discussion of chakra's and auto-suggestion. (In fact, I've compiled and edited several books in this area - which are available at" target="_blank">my self-help bookstore .)

But cutting to the chase, he really boils down the whole set up to a blueprint your mind was built from.

The key point is that you have to re-learn all you've learned up to this point about money. What he starts out to begin with is to tell you, “Don’t believe anything I say, but try these ideas out in your own life - and trust these ideas you are trying.”

Again, this is the best form of learning - to apply it as you go.

4 Planes of Existance

Eker holds that there are 4 planes we operate from:

- mental
- emotional
- physical
- spiritual

These are all interactive with the others. But the physical is just a "print-out" of the other three, according to Eker. In the book he simply touches on this, compared to other areas he deals with. 

But investigation shows that the spiritual is the most powerful of these - this is unlimited potential there to help us manifest anything and everything we could possibly want or need. Your mental and emotional states determine what you will ask for and how you recieve it. And the physical is just the apparent feedback we get - which shows us what we have to change in our mental and spiritual layout in order to ask better from the spiritual plane.

Your mental and emotional operations can be simply addressed and released. I cover this in "" target="_blank">Freedom Is " and "" target="_blank">Go Thunk Yourself, Revisited ". 

How you address your relationship with the spiritual plane is through your own generated faith (see" target="_blank">Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" , chapter 3)

Eker's acronym for changing your relationships with these planes is:

TFAR - thoughts lead to feelings lead to action lead to results.

If you don’t have the results you want, review your actions, review the feelings and thoughts which maintain those. The deal and importance of money is that it symbolically represents energy. And energy is created. Eker holds that the hidden, unseen is more powerful than the seen. (the other three vs. the physical) And so changing or concentrating on improving the other three improves the physical.

4 Elements of Change

We'll quote from his book:

"There are four key elements of change, each of which is essential in reprogramming your financial blueprint. They are simple but profoundly powerful.
    * The first element of change is awareness. You can’t change something unless you know it exists.
    * The second element of change is understanding. By understanding where your “way of thinking” originates, you can recognize that it has to come from outside you.
    * The third element of change is disassociation. Once you realize this way of thinking isn’t you, you can separate yourself from it and choose in the present whether to keep it or let it go—based on who you are today, and where you want to be tomorrow. You can observe this way of thinking and see it for what it is, a “file” of information that was stored in your mind a long, long time ago and may not hold any truth or value for you anymore.
    * The fourth element of change is reconditioning. We will begin this process in Part II of this book, where we will introduce you to the mental files that generate wealth. Should you want to take this a step further, I invite you to attend the Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminar, where you will be led through a series of powerful experiential techniques that will rewire your subconscious on a cellular and permanent level—retraining your mind to respond supportively in terms of money and success."

Underlying social training we’ve all experienced (unique individually) are:

  • Verbal programming: What did you hear when you were young?
  • Modeling: What did you see when you were young?
  • Specific incidents: What did you experience when you were young?

WEALTH PRINCIPLE: If you want to change the fruits, you will first have to change the roots. If you want to change the visible, you must first change the invisible.

WEALTH PRINCIPLE: Money is a result, wealth is a result, health is a result, illness is a result, your weight is a result. We live in a world of cause and effect.

WEALTH PRINCIPLE: When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.


Now, throughout the book, Ekar uses some very powerful gestures, which again go back to subconscious re-programming using Eastern techniques. When you perform these gestures, you are directly reprogramming your subconscious. Such as:

"DECLARATION: Place your hand over your heart and say...
'What I heard about money isn’t necessarily true. I choose to adopt new ways of thinking that support my happiness and success.'

Touch your head and say...
'I have a millionaire mind.'"

And this continues through the book, winding up with "Seventeen Ways Rich People Think and Act Differently from Poor and Middle-Class People" which you can change through this process. 

These are available at  as a printable page you can refer to daily. 

And if you are serious about changing your mind, you will need to have a program which lasts at least 30 days of simply affirming these statements daily, as well as writing out your goal and envisioning this as complete and arrived 3 times every single day for that period. (I've covered this more in a related article - we've already run too long here...)

The point I'm describing here is that" target="_blank">T. Harv Eker's Millionaire Mind Intensive  can be made to work for you and assist you in re-programming your mind into that of a millionaire - if you follow it.

Now, I've linked in a special offer of his" target="_blank">Millionaire Mind Intensive  - and he is some sort of salesman. But you can go to this page to find out for yourself if you want to take him up on his offer. He has several more programs which are operating all the time. As I make the time, I'll link to these as well.

For now, I wish you all the best in your new life from this point forward.
