There is a secret psychologically to money. Most people don't know about it. That's why most people never become financially successful. Alack of money is not the problem; It is merely a symptom of what's going on inside you.
- T. Harv Eker

The first giant reason why people are poor is because they don't want to be rich.
As absurd as this may sound, it's true.
Because subconsciously, we don't think it fits us. We feel it's not who we are.
Here's what I learned.
If you want to make small incremental improvements in you r life, change your behavior. But if you want to make dramatic, quantum leaps in your life, change your beliefs.
So many people are trying to change their behavior.
They try to save.
They study how to invest.
They start a tiny business.
But it's not enough unless they rewire their thinking process.
Other wise the old thinking will sabotage their new behavior.
Let me repeat what I said in the first page of this book.
Your money problems are mind problems.
And the first mind problem is your core beliefs about yourself.
Unless you change your picture of yourself in your mind, it will be almost impossible to get rich. Even if you have all the skills and connections in the world. Even if you earn huge amounts of money, you'll lose it all again - if you don't enlarge your psychological wallet.
Tony Meloto, founder of Gawad Kalinga - an amazing movement that builds homes and rebuilds lives of the poorest of the poor - says, "I've realized that poverty isn't the lack of jobs or the lack of money. it's the lack of dignity. The poor have lost their ability to dream. That's why we build very colorful GK houses. When the new owner of the GK houses wakes up each morning and sees the bright colors of his home, he realizes that he can dream again."
