Secrets of the Millionaire Mind

During one of my coaching sessions last week I was asked what books I’m reading. I am clearly a teacher and a student of life.  I love my library of empowerment that enriches my mind, body, faith, professional and personal development.      You would be surprised at the diversity of people and schools of thought that have definitely given me a foundation for the on-going process of creating a mind and life of abundance, peace, faith, health, productivity, creativity, compassion, service, problem solving, leadership and purpose.  I share and suggest many books to my coaching/counseling clients.  I’m so grateful for gaining 3 more coaching clients last week (New Jersey, Texas and Canada).  
        Below is one of the books I suggest by T. Harv Eker, “Secrets of a Millionaire Mind”.  I hope Eker’s 17 differences between rich and poor people will give you some motivation.” ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor

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.

3. Rich people are committed to being rich.  Poor people want to be rich.

4. Rich people think big.  Poor people think small.

5. Rich people focus on opportunities.  Poor people focus on obstacles.

8. Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.

10. Rich people are excellent receivers.  Poor people are poor receivers.

11. Rich people choose to get paid based on results.  Poor people choose to get paid based on time.

Stop Being a Bag Lady

 “Every time I fly I think how traveling has lost some of it’s joy and affordability for many people.  The airlines created another stream of income by charging customers for excess baggage.  The more extra baggage the airplane carries… the more fuel it uses.  I definitely became a smarter traveler because of this added fee policy.  Of course, I still take all my shoes, but there are some things I learned to travel without to avoid extra costs.   Ummm, makes me think about life.  How much does it cost you and I to carry unnecessary “emotional baggage”?
      There is a cost to our peace of mind, health,relationships and spiritual wellness when we carry baggage picgrudges, bitterness, anger, stress, grief, pride, self- righteous, rebellion, shame, fear and low self-esteem.  Emotional baggage hasa cost my friend!!! 
      Are you ready to let some of your baggage go?  Are you ready to feel lighter?  Are you ready to live your life better and not bitter? Are you ready to be resilient…not living with resentment and regrets?  Are you ready to live with faith…not fear?   Are you ready to live your life inspired…not sick and tired?”  ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor
