1. You are the root of your success.
He was born in Toronto, Ontario Canada and lived there through his childhood.
2. Be willing to be uncomfortable in order to grow. Don’t be afraid to switch it up and be consistent with it. Change at least one main habit at a time.
As a young adult, Eker moved to America and started over a dozen different companies before having success with a retail fitness store.
3. Focus on solving problems. Don’t look for opportunities. Look for problems and find a way to solve them.
After reportedly making millions through a chain of fitness stores and subsequently losing his fortune through mismanagement, he started analyzing the relationships rich people have with their money.
4. Learn to handle what you already got before expecting more to come. The universe says that until you can handle what you’ve already got, you won’t get any more.
5. Invest in yourself. We are all different, you never know how much time, sweat equity or knowledge investment you will have to invest before you see real growth. Many times it’s important to grow deep roots before your branches begin to show growth but remember, the deeper your roots are, the stronger the tree.
He says we each possess a “financial blueprint,” or an “internal script that dictates how we relate to money,” and that by changing this blueprint we can change our ability to accumulate wealth.
6. Play to win. Don’t just focus on how much it takes to pay the bills, focus on a bigger success.
He believes that people unwilling to make major sacrifices in order to succeed “play the role” of the victim and deny that they have control of their own situations.
7. Do the easy things in life. The easy stuff can be over looked but stick to it and get the job done no matter how hard or how easy.
Another theory of his is that guilt prevents seeking wealth and that “thinking about wealth as a means to help others” relieves this guilt and enables wealth accumulation.
8. Learn from successful people. Successful people have stored knowledge inside their minds that leads to success. They already know what it takes because of experience. Reprogram yourself to absorb the right information from successful people and change your actions to start down the right road.
9. Every master was once a disaster. But if you believe that you can learn how to do anything by opening your mind to learn from successful people, you will accomplish your goals.
He argues that: Rich people believe, “I create my life”, while poor people believe, “Life happens to me”.
10. You will attract the energy that you put out into the universe. Don’t forget to wear your awesome glasses today. You have a choice to look at any situation in different ways. Make a conscious decision to think positively and create a life that is awesome!
