5. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it!

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments?

The shocking answer is: None of the above!

In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: “Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” Eker does this by identifying your “money and success blueprint.” We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it.

In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth.

If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too!

Get More of the Important Things Done—Today!

There’s an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re done with the worst thing you’ll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task—but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life. Eat That Frog! shows you how to organize each day so you can zero in on these critical tasks and accomplish them efficiently and effectively.

Much more than simple principles and platitudes, the book takes readers on an inspiring spiritual journey to find their true and deepest self and reach the ultimate in personal growth and spirituality: the discovery of truth and light.

In the first chapter, Tolle introduces readers to enlightenment and its natural enemy, the mind. He awakens readers to their role as a creator of pain and shows them how to have a pain-free identity by living fully in the present. The journey is thrilling, and along the way, the author shows how to connect to the indestructible essence of our Being, “the eternal, ever-present One Life beyond the myriad forms of life that are subject to birth and death.”

19. Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl‘s memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl’s theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos (“meaning”)-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.

During his lifetime, he achieved neither glory nor wealth, but even now his works continue to influence people all over the world.

21. The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles

Its comfort level and airflow are incomparably marvelous.

Different Types of Fabric – Most Common Material

While linen is the priority of people in bed sheets, cotton is the most popular in different types of fabric nowadays. It has plenty of reasons for winning the selection of buyers in the home furnishing industry. The first and foremost reason to select this fiber is its washable and breathable nature.

Its durability makes it softer after every wash. There are no particular dos and don’ts regarding its care. However, this fabric is further divided into different categories you can find below.

Egyptian Cotton

3 Strategies for Lifelong Learning

Published

Strategies for Lifelong Learning

Photo by Dmitry Ratushny on Unsplash

Famous American author Mark Twain once said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing you can do is keep your mind young.”

What’s interesting about this quote, and many others from Mark Twain about learning, is that the author didn’t go to college. In fact, he dropped out of school in fifth grade to work as an apprentice to a printer. Today, he’s recognized as one of the most famous authors and lecturers of all time. We can learn a lot from Mr. Twain’s quotes about lifelong learning and its importance.

Lifelong learning isn’t just about having a formal education. The “school of life” is an endless wealth of knowledge just waiting to be grasped. Thankfully, there are different strategies you can use to continue learning for the rest of your life, so you never become stagnant, and according to Mr. Twain, you’ll keep your mind young.

Let’s look at a few of those strategies and how you can implement them into your own life to consistently learn and grow.

1. Understand Your Learning Style

Everyone learns differently, and at different paces. Learning at your own pace is called asynchronous learning, and it’s an important concept to grasp if you want to keep learning new things throughout your life. Asynchronous learning allows you to pick up on things in a way that works best for you, so you don’t feel forced into understanding loads of information right away.

When you’re able to learn at your own pace, you’re more likely to take in continuous information and understand it.

It’s also important to understand your individual learning style as you go throughout life. There are several different types of learning styles, including:

  • Visual
  • Aural
  • Verbal
  • Physical
  • Logical
  • Social

Everyone learns differently, and one style isn’t necessarily better than another. If you give two people the same piece of information, how it’s presented to them can have a strong impact on what they remember and how well it sinks in. For example, if you tell them something verbally, an aural learner might have a better understanding than a logical or physical learner. Some people are even multi-modal learners who use more than one learning style to digest information. Understanding more about your style can help you to put yourself in situations to foster it.

2. Taking Care of Your Body to Sharpen Your Mind

There is an incredibly strong connection between your body and mind. While you absolutely need to “exercise” your mind, you can also keep it sharp by keeping yourself physically healthy and active. Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said, “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.”

You can’t keep learning if you’re not properly taking care of yourself. It’s no one else’s responsibility but your own to treat your body with respect. Doing so can actually improve your focus, cognitive function, and memory.

So, what can you do physically to give your brain a boost?

First, make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Your body sorts out and stores memories while you sleep, and not getting enough of it can keep your brain from storing new information properly.

It’s also important to make sure to exercise and eat right to boost brain function. Healthy fats and dark, leafy vegetables have been shown to improve brain function, and regular exercise can help to increase the size of the hippocampus. That is the part of the brain responsible for verbal memory.

You can also “exercise” your mind and improve your memory with things like mnemonics. Mnemonic devices can be acronyms, rhyming phrases, groupings of numbers, or visualizations that help you to remember certain things. You can use them to remember anything from people’s names to what’s on your grocery list for the week, and using them regularly can help to keep your mind and memories sharper.

3. Set Learning Goals for Life

One of the best ways to keep yourself motivated for lifelong learning is to write down some of the things you’d like to learn. Then, find the resources that can help you accomplish those goals. If you want to break into a specific career or industry, you may not necessarily have to go to college to learn the right skills.

Consider whether what you really want to do requires a college degree or not. In many cases, you can learn what you need from your local library or by always having a book in hand. Abraham Lincoln once famously said, “Whatever you are, be a good one.” While Lincoln did go to college for a legal degree, it’s easy to argue that much of what he’s known for today happened by learning through experience, even when he was faced with impossibly demanding situations.

Lincoln’s quote can also motivate you to put your learned skills into practice. If you do have goals in mind, you’ll continue to learn more about them when you start doing them. You can read a thousand books on how to fix a car, but you’ll likely end up learning more when you get under the hood and look at the engine, yourself.

Continuous lifelong learning is about immersing yourself in as much knowledge as possible. That knowledge will come from books, other people, and personal experiences. You don’t have to follow a specific educational path in order to be a lifelong learner. Instead, you have to have a willingness to keep growing and expanding your mind. If you’re able to do that, as Mark Twain suggested, you’ll be able to keep your mind young.
