“If you’re not rich and happy, there’s a good chance you still have some things to learn about money, success, and life.”

I have read many books on money, and I can assure you that Secret of Millionaire Mind is the prerequisite for financial well-being, freedom and happiness.

Harv claims if your subconscious mind “financial blueprint” is not set for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make much of a difference.

About the Book

Harv discusses why only tiny percentage of people make most of the money, and claims that we all have the power of making more money and be financially free, irrespective of how our life has turned up so far.

Book is divided in two parts. In Part 1, he discusses the reason why most people struggle financially, are extremely poor or barely reaches to middle class. In Part 2, he shares 17 money beliefs, thought processes of rich & poor, and how one can change the results by changing the way they think.


Part 1 – Your Money Blueprint

Harv claims that your character, thinking, and your beliefs are a critical part of what determines the level of your success.

“Your Income can grow only to the extent you do.”

Harv calls our core beliefs about money, Blueprint. He explains that most of the beliefs we got, are influenced by all we heard, observed and experienced while growing up, and we must put them under scrutiny and change it, if it is restricting our growth in any way.

Harv explains the cycle of manifestation like this – Thought -> Feeling -> Action = Results.

Harv provides declaration one can read to impress subconscious with rich thoughts throughout the books. He differentiates declaration from affirmations.

Affirmation – A positive statement asserting that a goal you wish to achieve is already happening. With this the concern is that little tiny voice in the mind revolts stating it’s not true.

Declaration – To state an official intention to undertake a course of action or adopt a particular status. It is our intention to act in a certain way to accomplish our goals, which in turn is accepted by mind as possibilities.

Here are two ways, by which our Money beliefs are conditioned –

1. The First Influence – Verbal Programming

  • Verbal conditioning is extremely powerful. When the subconscious mind must choose between deeply rooted emotions and logic, emotions will almost always win.
  • Declaration – Place your hand at your heart and say – What I heard about money isn’t necessarily true. I choose to adopt new ways of thinking that support my happiness and success. Touch your head and say – I have a millionaire mind.

2. The Second Influence – Modeling

  • As they say monkey see, money do. We learn more by observation as a kid. Think about it how was your home environment while growing up especially around money. Did it come easily, regularly, or it was struggle, was it caused more joy, or it was always subject of worries.
  • Declaration – Place your hand on your heart and say – I release my unsupportive money experiences from the past and create a new and rich future. Touch your head and say – I have a millionaire mind.

PART II – The Wealth Files – Seventeen Ways Rich People Think and Act Differently from Poor and Middle-Class People.

Harv describes mind metaphorically as file cabinet like one in office, or home. We have information in all aspect of life saved in different files, and all our decision comes from those files. We find it difficult to face situation that don’t match information in those files and our default reaction to such scenario is fear.

Good news is that we can change these files cabinet and arrange them the way rich people think, like changing cluttered wardrobe.
