What is the difference between the millionaires who wrote How to Think Like a Millionaire and you or me? Do they just happen to know the right people? Are they somehow more talented than us? Do they work harder than we do? Were they somehow destined for greatness, and we simply aren’t?

According to How to Think Like a Millionaire, the only real difference between the haves and the wish-I-hads is focus. Sure we all wish we had more money, work that we find truly fulfilling, and time to do the things that are really important to us. Unfortunately, most of us never get past the wishing part. If we only spent half as much time and effort on the actual trying to make our dreams come true as we do on making excuses, putting ourselves down, and setting ourselves up for failure we’d be multimillionaires in no time.

Essentially, How to Think Like a Millionaire shows us that the only thing holding us back from our dreams is ourselves. Clarity, focus, and passion are the keys. Dreaming big and making little steps forward will get us closer to our goals.

The problem I have with all these books (even though I read a lot of them) is that they are illogical. Granted, I realize you can psych yourself out of getting rich by defeatist thinking. After all, if you take no action, nothing is guaranteed to happen. But is the opposite true? Does positive thinking and "belief" in taking action make you rich?...hardly. In fact, how many people do we all know that destroy themselves through their schemes and business ventures. Sometimes, positive thinking and "belief" are just manifestations of stupidity and ignorance. I cannot help but always remember that picture of the gold-rush prospectors trudging up the hill in Alaska in an endless line panning for gold. One out of 5000 struck any gold at all. Tell me, were they "thinking like a millionaire" or just plain stupid?

Read it again in August of 2014. No change in my opinion.

This is philosophic book. We always want better life really quick and we don't think anymore how we can succeed in our life.
This book just remember you how you have to take time and think before taking any descision, because each step in your life has consequenties in your future

Quick and concise: the book explores dreaming big, the power of a positive mind, and the power of goals. Everything is all in one place in a concise gathering of the principles of the success literature. The book is easy to read: the key is to do what is suggested. This book makes is easy to create a path by providing a template for you. It won't do everything for you, but it will provide a way for you to work with yourself.

It was an interesting book but had more to do with the philosophy behind self improvement. I'm not entirely sure I agree with everything in here, but it definitely gave me something to think about. The reason I give it three stars is because I'm not likely to pick it up again - even for reference.

This is the second time that I have read this book. I think we all know the points that they mentioned, we just have to refresh what we already know by being more focused and dedicated to what we really want.

Brief and so sweet

This is a brief read and insightful book for anyone looking to better their lives in every way. Everything stated on these pages you probably already know, and sometimes being reminded of what we already know if all we need to get started.

Having read "The Instant Millionarire" by Mark Fisher, it was only logical to read this one.

I will start by saying I gave "The Instant Millionire" 5 stars and would highly recommend it to anyone needing some inspiration, guidance, or just an injection of hope...that is what it did for me over 20 years ago.

This book would be the natural follow-up for the author and the reader and it ties neatly into the concepts outlined in the story. The authors intent is not to go deep into success philosophies but provide a high level view of what it takes to enjoy true life's success.

There are weightier volumes available on success and life fulfillment and this "light" read will remind you of what we all inherently know, or it will help point you in the direction of discovery.

As an author of simple stories on sales and life mastery, I understand the bite-sized pieces approach and use it in my own writings.

This is a good book if you have already read "The Instant Millionaire"...if you have not read that work...I highly recommend it before reading this one...it will have a better "punch"

This is a quick read -- 113 pages -- that was recommended by a corporate consultant. If you read any books on intention, than either skip this one or look at it as a cliff notes version of "intention" rhetoric.

I actually enjoy books on intention as I wholly subscribe to the theories. This book is just the right size -- a quick peruse of a chapter and your subconcious is set for another day!

In my opinion the title doesn't describe what the book is really about (don't judge a book by its cover!). To me the book is about being optimistic about your potential, thinking positive on a daily basis, and writing down your goals so you can see/visualize them and make them happen. The book shares a positive message about finding success.

When I first read this book I really liked it. Now, as I flip back through it I find that I disagree with a lot of what it says. Basically, it is a lot about positive thinking and how to think your way to success. "Think positive thoughts about money..." There are some good things in there, but I can't get with most of it anymore.
