Millionaire Mind

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker is a book about reprogramming your mind with “wealth files” so you can think more like the rich and get wealthy. I am going to talk about one of the principles that he discusses in the book.

Saving and fun account

He says that you should put 10% of the money you make into a financial freedom account. This money is not to just be spent but invested to make you more money. Now this isn’t the first time you have heard from someone to put 10% of your money aside to invest for your future. But he does go into another thing, and that is a financial freedom jar. Make a jar that you contribute into every day. It could be $10, $5, $1, $0.01. or all your loose change. But the point is to always put your attention onto your financial freedom every day.

The other is to make a fun account. The money you put into this account is to be spent every month on something that makes you feel rich. The things you wouldn’t normally do. Go to a fancy restaurant and not look at the prices on the menu. Go to the spa and get the deluxe treatment. Things to treat yourself.

We are holistic and therefore need balance

Have you ever tried to save save save and then one day something comes up and wipes out all your savings? Have you ever spent spent spent, and then one day you don’t have anymore to spend? Well having a saving account and a fun account will balance that out. Because when you only save, your logical mind will be set to rest and knows everything is ok, but your inner spirit, your fun side isn’t fed and taken care of. When you only spend, you might have fun and have some cool stuff, but then most of the time people start feeling guilty on what they spend on knowing that they should save money and have a cushion to fall back on.

Having both will take care of both sides, you will be able to save to invest for your financial freedom as well as spending and taking care of yourself. You need balance and taking care of both sides will eliminate one side sabotaging the other. That why you can have your cake, and eat it to. You wont have to much money without enough fun, and then you wont have to much fun but no money for it.
