“This is it.” – T. Harv Eker

Key Points

1. Stop Chasing Money and Start Solving Problems

If you want to get rich, then you need to do something that is completely counter intuitive.

STOP chasing money.

If you are constantly chasing money, then you are focused entirely on the wrong things.

Getting rich requires that you solve problems, period.

There is no shortcut to riches, no easy way to wealth, and no true success that can be had without a maniacal focus on finding problems and providing solutions.

If you want to make a million dollars, then you need to find a million dollar problem and solve it.

If you want to make ten million dollars, then find a ten million dollar problem and solve it.

Money flows to the people who are solving problems and providing value… not to the people who are just trying to make a quick buck.

2. Forget Finding the Right Vehicle for Wealth 

You will never find the right vehicle to achieve financial success until you become the right driver.

Why is it that thousands of people get involved in network marketing, real estate, and social media, but only a handful of those people achieve real financial success?

It’s clearly not the vehicle.

History has irrevocably shown us that it is possible to become immensely wealthy by using any of the industries mentioned above.

The problem rests with the person driving that vehicle.

If your mind is not wired for success, if you have not clearly and intentionally trained your subconscious to find opportunities and take advantage of those opportunities to their fullest capacity, then you will never be successful no matter how fast of a vehicle you find!

I know people who become millionaires in less than a year with Social Media or real estate, and I know people who can’t make a frigging dollar!

The only difference is that the person who made millions had doe the self work necessary to achieve success in that industry and the person who ended up broke had not.

3. If You Want to Get Rich You Must do What Rich People Do 

Why is it that so many people think that the laws for becoming wealthy are different from all the other laws governing our universe?

I mean think about it.

Everyone knows the laws for physical success.

Eat according to your goals (muscle gain or fat loss), exercise regularly, and give your body enough time to recharge.

No one will argue with that.

On one level or another everyone knows the laws to create successful relationships.

Spend quality time with your partner, express gratitude and appreciation, resolve problems elegantly, and put yourself in the other person’s shoes.

Again… most people will not argue with that.

But there are laws that will make you wealthy and laws that will make you broke too and most people are unwilling to take responsibility for their lives and accept that their current financial situation is in direct correlation to their adherence to those laws!

If you want to be rich, then do what rich people do.

Spend less than you make, make your money work for you, invest in yourself and in appreciating assets, don’t get into too much debt, train your subconscious for money mastery, and quit wasting time on pointless activities.

Find rich people who you admire and then do what they do.

It’s that simple.

4. Thought is the Mother of all Results

If you want to change your results, you cannot start by changing your actions.

You have to start by changing your thoughts.

If you have been programmed to believe that money is the root of all evil then no amount of hardwork or hustle will help you earn the money that you want.

You have to change your thoughts around money first for your actions to start aligning with your desired outcomes.

Start taking the time to really dig deep and figure out what thoughts you have and what subconscious patterns your mind has been conditioned to believe, and then get to work on changing those thoughts.

Because once you change your thoughts you can change your actions.

Once you change your actions, you can change your results.

And once you change your results you change your whole life.

5. Why Aren’t You Rich Yet?

Let me ask you a question…

Why aren’t you rich yet?

Really… Why aren’t you?

Some of you might say it’s because you’re too young, too inexperienced, too old, too blah blah blah!

All of your excuses for your lack of financial abundance are invalid.

If you look at the world around you and can find just one person who was given the same circumstances as you and ended up wealthy, then you know that your excuse has no merit.

If you want to get rich, then you need to realize that you have no excuses for your current state of financial lack.

It’s entirely up to you to make the changes that you need to make to achieve your dreams of wealth.

Cut the crap, forget the excuses, and you will find a way to get rich.

    Thank you Andrew and T. Harv for this podcast. I was introduced to your website, Andrew, when you did an interview with Keiza Noble. I read your articles and it definitely was for me. Me being a twentysomething and in graduate school with no clue what the real world is like.

    Again, I appreciate the time and work you put into these podcast and articles.

    ~Francis

    Thanks for being a supporter Francis! Keep listening but more importantly take action. Be sure you are producing results in your life vs consuming content (other people’s results). :)

    GREAT podcast. I was able to take away a lot from it.

    I like the fact that Harv was on Maui while doing this interview. That’s where I was born and raised!.

    Great work and thanks Andrew!

    Andrew!

    Loved this interview. How did you get him on?

    I’ll be following his advice and listening to this one 30 times.

    Also, if we created a drinking game where you had to take a drink everytime Harv says “Right this down…right this down” people would be trashed in about 4 min.’s

    Seriously thought…how did you get him on?
