Stanley Based on years of research, Danko and Stanley bring the real secrets of wealth to the masses, and it’s not as you’ve imagined. The authors have designed a 7-step program that is vital to becoming a millionaire. But first, they break down the pervasive myths about how wealthy people behave and where they spend their time and money. The examples in the book don’t include superstars, but rather the average Joes who live below their means and make their money work for them. This book is a game-changer for your wealth mindset. The Millionaire Next Door by William D. Danko and Thomas J. Stanley Remember: Your money mindset is the feelings and thoughts you subconsciously develop towards money from your life experiences. Because our thoughts often control our actions, developing a negative money mindset can create a barrier between you and your financial health. It can keep you in a place of stress and anxiety and it can keep you from achieving financial goals. Prosperity thrives on positivity You might be surprised to learn how much a positive mindset affects your attitude towards money and your success… Wealthy people expect to make money; they see themselves as rich and deeply believe that they will succeed. Wealth is part of their identity. Think of how many people you know who say, “I never have any money” or joke about never getting ahead? If that’s what they believe, then that’s what will exactly happen for them. Changing your mindset to truly believing in your success is crucial to reaching your goals. An unshakable belief that you will be wealthy isn’t sufficient on its own, of course, but it provides a solid foundation to act and to make others believe you can do it too… …and that produces a momentum all of its own.
