T. Harv Eker's blog - must read!

My best friend came to Japan for a week to visit. She found T. Harv Eker's Millionaire Mind book on my shelf and managed to read it TWICE before going back to Canada.

That is how compelling this book is.

Anyway T. Harv Eker has a blog that is a must read. The excerpt below talks about our money programming. I remember as a child always hearing that "money doesn't grow on trees" which is true to a point however it does grow on shrubs though!

The secret is all in perspective.

"Our financial blueprints consist mainly of the “programming” we received in the past, especially as children. We aren’t born knowing anything about money; we were “taught” primarily through our family upbringing, but also through multiple cultural influences. We take this conditioning and run on it for the rest of our lives, even though we may not be aware of it.

This conditioning comes from:
1. What we heard when we were young
2. What we saw
3. What we experienced ourselves

If a phrase like “Rich people can’t be spiritual” is ingrained into you, that subconscious, negative connotation will override actions any day, even if being rich is what you really want. We’re primarily creatures who act on emotion more than we act on reason, even though we’d like to believe the opposite."
