Part 2 of the book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind T. Harv Eker talks about how rich people think and act.But more specifically he talks about  the 17 ways rich people act differently than the poor and middle class. He calls these 17 differences “Wealth Files”.

In the book he talks about how your thoughs originate from the “files of information” you have in the storage cabinets of your mind. According to Harv this information comes from past programming,or what is commonly referred to as the conditioned mind.

In my opinion we are conditioned to think like poor people and to have a scarcity mindset. Of course that’s a topic for another blog post. But just like we are programmed to think like poor and middle class people we can also program our minds to think like the rich. I’m guessing that’s what Harv is on a mission to do and why he speaks across stages all throughout the world about having the proper money mindset. Enough of the rant. Here are the 17 ways the rich think differently than the poor:

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – 17 Ways The Rich Think Differently than the Poor:

1 – Rich people believe ” I create my life.” Poor people believe “Life happens to me.”
2 – Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose.

Do you want to create more wealth in your life? 

You probably read this post because you want more wealth and abundance in your life. Thinking abundantly and having a wealth mindset is important but it’s not enough. To create wealth and abundance in your life you need some sort of vehicle. One vehicle I’m using to create more wealth and abundance in my life is this network marketing company RIGHT HERE. If you’re not in a network marketing company I highly suggest you get in one so you can leverage the time,skills,and energy of others. Leveraging the efforts of others is one of the secrets of the rich.

Hope you liked my post. If you found the information useful don’t hesitate to share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter. Bye for now!

Thanks, Tyronne, for
posting these 17. Actually, they come as no surprise to me, but I
REALLY appreciated #12. I’ve always noticed this one a lot with many
people, but I’ve never seen anyone point out this particular trait,
specifically, until just now when you showed that T. Harv Eker did! 
It’s nice to know that a famous author confirmed what I’ve noticed, in
the past, around me.

It’s funny how some people can be poor receivers. You would think that anyone is open to getting something, but in reality, the habitual givers are the worst receivers.

I agree with you…my Mom is just like what you described.

Thanks for stopping by Kristi!
