Harv Eker: Your Wealth Blueprint

Jun 27, 2008
Harv Eker first coined the term "wealth blueprint" in his best-selling book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. This is a revolutionary concept in the self-development and wealth creation world, while at the same time being based on long-standing psychological principles.

The premise of the wealth blueprint, also called the financial blueprint, is that each of us has a specific way of thinking and feeling towards money and success that is buried within our subconscious minds. These thoughts and feelings come from our childhood, what we are told by others, what we see on television and read about, and what we experience early in life with regards to money.

Great evidence of the Harv Ekers' financial blueprint theory can be seen in the behavior of most lottery winners. For example, almost 80% of people who win major jackpots are seriously broke again within only two years!

Most researchers believe this happens because these winners do not feel comfortable with or deserving of great wealth and financial success. If you think about it you can probably identify one or more people in your life who seem to have a way of sabotaging themselves whenever they are close to monetary success.

In fact you might even be able to see this behavior in yourself if you look closely enough! I admit that I discovered a seriously flawed financial blueprint after reading Harv Eker's book and taking his philosophy to heart.

Prior to my realization I had created numerous successes through my business. But I invariably found some way to discredit these events and throw a wrench in them to avoid long-term success.

Before reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind I had no idea I was doing this. But now it's so clear, and I see the blueprints of other people all the time.

And the really powerful point to the concept is that a blueprint can work for an individual's benefit as well. How many business people do you know who seem to bounce back from a fall no matter how bad it is?

Think about big time investors who lose everything, only to be incredibly rich once more in a year or less. This is a direct result of their financial blueprint being set for great success and wealth.

Each of us, according to Eker, has the ability to change our blueprint and structure it as we see fit. But this involves real work, and the first step is taking an honest look at your current blueprint.

Here are a few basic tips to help you determine if you have a healthy financial blueprint:

Do you ever use terms like "filthy rich" or "obscene amount of money"? Beware that this kind of talk is very detrimental to your plans of achieving success! Think about it; why would you want to be filthy, obscene, etc.? This is a very powerful negative subconscious message that needs to be avoided.

Also, when you see someone who is obviously very rich and successful how do you feel toward that person? Are you happy for them, or do you resent them and mutter things like "rich jerk: under your breath?

If you are jealous and bitter about other people's success, it's a clear sign that your blueprint might be in trouble. Because how can you honestly expect to achieve something you feel angry or spiteful about?

Most people don't take the time to think about these things. But as Harv Eker points out in his books and seminars, most people aren't rich either!

You can begin right now to create healthy thoughts and feelings about wealth, success, and money. In doing so you will be rebuilding your wealth blueprint to serve you better.
