Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
Rich people focus on opportunities.
Poor people focus on obstacles.
“Rich people see opportunities. Poor people see obstacles. Rich people see potential growth. Poor people see potential loss. Rich people focus on the rewards. Poor focus on the risks.
It comes down to the age-old question, “Is the glass half empty or half full?” We're not talking positive thinking here, we're talking about your habitual perspective on the world. Poor people make choices based upon fear. Their minds are constantly scanning for what is wrong or could go wrong in any situation. Their primary mindset is, “What if it doesn't work?” or, more often, “It won't work.”
Middle-class people are slightly more optimistic. Their mind-set is “I sure hope this works.”
Rich people, as we've said earlier, take responsibility for the results in their lives and act upon the mind-set “It will work because I'll make it work.” Rich people expect to succeed. They have confidence in their abilities, they have confidence in their creativity, and they believe that should the doo-doo hit the fan, they can find another way to succeed.”
