Do you believe in the idea above? It is not a new idea and you must have heard about it a few times. This is one of the important ideas taught by T. Harv Eker, in his book â€œSecrets of the Millionaire Mindâ€. T. Harv Eker is a multimultimillionaire (this is how he describes himself) who runs his popular â€˜Millionaire Mind Intensive Seminarâ€™.
The author elaborates on the idea of a personâ€™s â€œMoney Blueprintâ€, the inner laws of money. This is your â€˜preset programâ€™ or â€˜way of being in relation to moneyâ€™. The important point he stressed out is that your personal money blueprint will have a decisive impact on your financial life as well as your personal life.
Some of the wealth principles that support his idea taken in his exact words are:
â€¢ Your income can grow only to the extent you do.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ Money is a result; your weight is a result. We live in a world of cause and effect.
â€¢ When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
â€¢ If your motivation for acquiring money or success comes from a none supportive root such as fear, anger, or the need to â€œproveâ€ yourself, your money will never bring you happiness.
How is your money blueprint formed?
Your money blueprint is formed from the information or â€˜programmingâ€™ you learned or is exposed to throughout your growing up years starting from when you were a young child. It is the result of your accumulated experience and consists of your thoughts, emotions or feelings and actions with regards to money. What you learned may come from your parents, siblings, teachers, friends, media and even your culture. Hence, this will affect your so-called â€œProcess of Manifestationâ€ that is 'thoughts lead to feelings', 'feelings lead to actions' and 'actions lead to results.'
It is important to know that if your money blueprint is set for financial failure, then no matter what you do, the end result will be bad. Your past programming will ensure that you get what you programmed yourself to achieve, i.e financial failure.
In Part II, we will go over some of the interesting ideas that the author claims to be the ways rich people think and act differently compared to the poor or middle-class people.
