As most of you know, I don't recommend many items in my posts unless they are truly worthwhile - which I really believe this book is.
I first took it out at the library thinking it would be a quick read to be returned in a week and instead ended up keeping the copy for myself and paying the library for the book. First of all, it unbelievably ended up being a real autographed copy by Mr. Eker himself that someone named Bob donated, but that was not the main reason I kept it.
I kept it because it was simply too good to give back.
One of my favorite things about the book is that it is one of those books where you can open the book to any page and receive an instant "kick in the butt" feeling about wanting to get out and create more money.
Basically the book lists very bluntly the different mind sets between people who have money and the people who don't. So simple, yet so profound.
I was actually so inspired by it that I created a "cheat sheet" for myself that I typed out - printed on "scroll like paper" and pinned it up above my desk in my home office, so I can look at it everyday.
I've included some of the items on the list below:
Rich Vs. Poor Cheat Sheet
Rich people believe they create their life
Poor people believe that life happens to them
Poor people complain to get attention
Rich people are too busy making money to complain
Rich people play the money game to win
Poor people play the money game to not lose
Rich people focus on opportunities
Poor people focus on obstacles
Rich people see potential growth
Poor people see potential loss
Rich people focus on rewards
Poor people focus on the risks
And this is just the first few chapters! There are over 40 more!
After each one of these quotes Mr. Eker goes into more detail about the differences in how "rich" people think as opposed to how "poor" people and the information and advice he gives is extremely enlightening and empowering.
So if you've been looking for an inspiring book that is going to "kick you in the butt" and get you moving I highly recommend this one.
Sorry, unfortunately this is one of the few I can't give away for free, but you could find it at a very reasonable price below if you are interested.
It is well worth it, I promise you. And creating your own cheat sheet is not a bad idea either. Just take the quotes that have the biggest impact on you and put them on your wall as a constant reminder.
