4.0 out of 5 stars Its all about working harder than the rest, 31 July 2007
This review is from: The Millionaire Mind (Paperback)
I haven't read The Millionaire Next door but it concluded that there were a lot of millionaires around and that they were ordinary people.

Other peoples wealth and how they earned it is a fascinating subject. Even more fascinating is trying to discover how it would be possible for any normal individual to acquire wealth.

This book splits readers into two camps either it is the blindingly obvious or it is a fascinating read. I like to read it and and read it twice.

The problem is those of us who are not millionaires would like to believe that those who have made money have done it by some trick. It is upsetting to read therefore that the top five success factors ware

Integrity
Discipline
Social skills
A supportive spouse
Hard work- more than most people.

It also confirmed that most millionaires had been told that they were not intellectually gifted or smart enough to succeed.

The out come is that they work hard at what they know how to do. They pay people to do what they cannot do and they take advice.
They stick to what they know and do it better than other people

They do not parade their wealth and try and get value for money.

Like most self help books it takes far too long to tell you the same thing and there are a lot of tables which do not bring much to the party.

The answer is if you want it enough you have to work for it and not spend it in the meantime.

If you want to spend it then don't expect to have it. It is a depressed for the terminally lazy and those who want it now.

Surely there is a middle course that is hard work and enjoy yourself.
