If you read the Finance 101: Create A Financial Plan you know that the first step is to your mind of your money habits and beliefs. This is a great book for helping you do that. Hands down. This book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth, resonated with me so much. The premise of the book is that our minds have a financial thermostat. This thermostat works the same the one in your home does. If you set the dial or screen to 70 degrees and the temperature rises a degree the system will come on and return the temperature to 70 degrees. This is the same way our minds work. If your mind is set to poor, no matter how much money you make you will always return to poor. If you’re always set to rich you will always return to having money and wealth. WHAT!!! This was mind blowing for me. It’s a quick read, and if you are so inclined you can attend one of the events called the Millionaire Mind Intensive (MMI) offered by Peak Potentials held all over the country. I attended and became a member.
Back to the book. It lays out a simple jar system to manage your money. The jars are Necessities, Long Term Savings for Spending, Giving, Education, Play, and (my favorite) FINANCIAL FREEDOM. The book walks you through step-by-step how to create the system for yourself and how to divide your income into these jars. I literally have six jars on my shelf with the words on each jar and a little bit of change in each. As you put money into the jars you are showing the Universe you can accept more money because you know what to do with it. You also don’t need to guess how much you have for donating to charity or spending on your education. I have my bank accounts set up the same way. I have an account that corresponds to each jar. The more money in the physical and figurative jar, the more money you attract.
The book is a pathway to clearing our minds of negative money beliefs as a way to create wealth and gain financial freedom. To get the full benefit of the book you could attend an MMI event that is talked about in the book. I attended one last August during a particularly ROUGH time in my life. I was struggling with various things. I found out during this event that my thermostat is set to hoard. That’s right, I’m a money hoarder. I literally used to stash money all over my house because I have a poverty complex. We’re not talking about a lot of money. $20 bucks here, $50 bucks there. Occasionally I run across one of these stashes and chuckle. What I found at this event was a group of people with similar goals and desires in life. The organization also offers other classes and programs (for a fee – EDUCATION JAR) that will set you on a path to building financial freedom and changing your thermostat. Surrounding yourself with people who have the same goals is a tremendous success factor. Not surround by people who want to change their lives, find some at Meetup.com or join a local club. Doesn’t have to be fancy, you could meet at Starbucks every other Saturday.
