44 Wealth Principles
44 Wealth Principles from T. Harv Eker’s best-selling book ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind; Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth’:
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 1:
Your income can grow only to the extent you do!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 2:
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.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 3:
Money is a result, wealth is a result, health is a result, illness is a result, your weight is a result. We live in a world of cause and effect.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 4:
Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 5:
Thoughts lead to feelings. Feelings lead to actions. Actions lead to results.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 6:
When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 7:
If your motivation for acquiring money or success comes from a non supportive root such as fear, anger, or the need to “prove” yourself, your money will never bring you happiness.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 8:
The only way to permanently change the temperature in the room is to reset the thermostat. In the same way, the only way to change your level of financial success “permanently” is to reset your financial thermostat.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 9:
Consciousness is observing your thoughts and actions so that you can live from true choice in the present moment rather than being run by programming from the past.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 10:
You can choose to think in ways that will support you in your happiness and success instead of ways that don’t.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 11:
Money is extremely important in the areas in which it works, and extremely unimportant in the areas in which it doesn’t.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 12:
When you are complaining, you become a living, breathing “crap magnet.”
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 13:
There is no such thing as a really rich victim!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 14:
If your goal is to be comfortable, chances are you’ll never get rich. But if your goal is to be rich, chances are you’ll end up mighty comfortable.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 15:
The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 16:
If you are not fully, totally, and truly committed to creating wealth, chances are you won’t.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 17:
The Law of Income: You will be paid in direct proportion to the value you deliver according to the marketplace.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 18:
“Bless that which you want.” —Huna philosophy
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 19:
Leaders earn a heck of a lot more money than followers!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 20:
The secret to success is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than any problem.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 21:
If you have a big problem in your life, all that means is that you are being a small person!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 22:
If you say you’re worthy, you are. If you say you’re not worthy, you’re not. Either way you will live into your story.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 23:
If a hundred-foot oak tree had the mind of a human, it would only grow to be ten feet tall!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 24:
For every giver there must be a receiver, and for every receiver there must be a giver.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 25:
Money will only make you more of what you already are.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 26:
How you do anything is how you do everything.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 27:
There’s nothing wrong with getting a steady paycheck, unless it interferes with your ability to earn what you’re worth. There’s the rub. It usually does.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 28:
Never have a ceiling on your income.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 29:
Rich people believe “You can have your cake and eat it too.” Middle-class people believe “Cake is too rich, so I’ll only have a little piece.” Poor people don’t believe they deserve cake, so they order a doughnut, focus on the hole, and wonder why they have “nothing.”
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 30:
The true measure of wealth is net worth, not working income.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 31:
Where attention goes, energy flows and results show.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 32:
Until you show you can handle what you’ve got, you won’t get any more!
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 33:
The habit of managing your money is more important than the amount.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 34:
Either you control money, or it will control you.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 35:
Rich people see every dollar as a “seed” that can be planted to earn a hundred more dollars, which can then be replanted to earn a thousand more dollars.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 36:
Action is the “bridge” between the inner world and the outer world.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 37:
A true warrior can “tame the cobra of fear.”
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 38:
It is not necessary to try to get rid of fear in order to succeed.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 39:
If you are willing to do only what’s easy, life will be hard. But if you are willing to do what’s hard, life will be easy.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 40:
The only time you are actually growing is when you are uncomfortable.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 41:
Training and managing your own mind is the most important skill you could ever own, in terms of both happiness and success.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 42:
You can be right or you can be rich, but you can’t be both.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 43:
Every master was once a disaster.
WEALTH PRINCIPLE 44:
To get paid the best, you must be the best.
