Money Magnet Or Crap Magnet?

Are you a Money Magnet or a Crap Magnet?

I am going to make an observation here about what may be currently going on in your life and also what you need to do to become wealthy, or at least much better off than you are currently (if you are not already wealthy).

Much of this thought process is pulled from Harv Eker’s wonderful book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”. If you have not read it, do yourself, your significant other and those you love a big, big favor, and go out and get it and read it tonight. After reading please let me know what you think.

Although, there is an even Better Book Called Sabotage by Mike Connaway 2 years earlier that covers the material in more detail.  At first I thought Harv’s book was a dumbed down version of Mike’s book.

Read Mike’s first and see if you don’t think so yourself!

Anyway much of Mike’s advice is repeated by Harv.

I am going for a much abbreviated version here and I know there are days where we all do some of the below to a certain extent but, if this is your main mode of thinking you need to do some serious soul searching.

“Rich people Create their own life and poor people believe that Life just happens to them.”

Poor people, I am talking mind, body, spirit, and wallet here are victims by nature. Rich people are not. What you focus on tends to expand and therefore victims create there life in which they are constant victims and Rich people tend to get Richer. Go Figure! 

So if you want to become Rich doesn’t it make sense to copy and emulate how the Rich think and what they do? Don’t you think that if you do that, rather than emulate poor people you have a better chance of becoming Rich? Of course!

You really need to be careful about Levelers and stay away from them, them being Levelers and Victims.

Hang around and listen to Rich and Successful people and you might learn something. Victims are very negative and detrimental to your well being and you should take staying away from them seriously. They are out to bring you down to there level or even lower. That is what makes them happy whether they know it or not. The effect is the same whether they do it on purpose or not, and that is to ruin you and most importantly ruin your dreams.

#1 Clue to a Victim is Blame

They always blame someone else or thing for their condition. They love to point at others or conditions as to why they are where they are and involve as many people as possible.

#2 Justification

They must justify their position because they are not successful and go out of their way to point out the bad things that could happen, might happen, and they ” if only but” you to death.

#3 Complaining

This is a very bad thing because they get you to focus on the negative. Why something will not work, or why it is not a good thing to do. The problem is that it takes your mind off solutions on how it can and will work. Like attracts like and when you whine and complain failure hears you loud and clear! The universe will reward you in abundance!

This is a direct quote from Harv and I cracked up when I read it but it is true to the core. See if you do not agree.

When you are complaining, you become a living, breathing crap magnet”

Have you ever noticed that complainers usually have a tough life? It seems that everything that could go wrong does go wrong for them. They say, Of course I complain —look how crappy my life is. And now that you know better you can explain to them, No, its because you complain that your life is crappy. Shut up.and don’t stand near me! End quote. You might get hit with the crap intended for them. I have seen this happen.

He goes on to say what I have said in that past, stay away from them, don’t deal with them, if they wont go away, ignore them. But do not get near them or you are going to get some of the foul smelling stuff that they are asking for and will get, on you. They can be a friend, family member, or even complete strangers.

Keep your distance and become a money magnet instead. Be positive, think about solutions, think about how to achieve! That is what will attract people that will help you on your way to being a Money Magnet and becoming Rich! The Universe will take notice and you will be helped in more ways than you can imagine.

If you are trying to break your old habits about money or just want to be wealthy, Harv’s book could change how you look at everything around you. Try it and see!

Remember, there are no Rich Victims or Rich Whiners either for that matter.

Have a profitable day, they are out there to be had a plenty!
