My book review on The One Minute Millionaire. I really like when friends or actually anyone gives me suggestions on books to read. A friend talked about this book and did suggest to read it. I took her up on it and glad I did.
I actually had the book for awhile as I was reading several others. Yes, sometimes I will be reading 2 books at the same time. Usually they are a little different in nature. Depending on the book as to whether I will read another book at the same time.
The way this book is actually written it was like reading 2 books. I really appreciated how the authors, Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen wrote it. On the left were points on what to do and how to be a One Minute Millionaire.
What do I mean by that. The pages on the left were what to do with the technical terms of the principles of becoming a millionaire. At the time when I read this some of it was “new language” to me as an entrepreneur. On the right side they actually wrote a story about a woman who lost her husband and her in laws took her children.
Of course the in laws were the bad guys. They didn’t think she was giving good enough care for her children. They really were snobs. They were rich and their son had always refused their help.
So when the children were taken in a really sneaky way, you have to read the book to see how! That put Michelle into a tail spin. As fortune would have it Michelle saw a lady, Samantha, in action in a boardroom and she wanted to be like her. In my opinion Michelle was kind of a mealy mouth lady at the time.
They did meet and Michelle told Samantha she wanted to be like her. Michelle moved in with Sam and they went to work on changing Michelle. Sam was a very good teacher but allowed Michelle room to think for her self.
Sam was a millionaire teaching Michelle how to actually become one. Michelle thought of herself as a victim as her husband was killed by a drunk driver, her in-laws stole her children and she lost her house. She had to be taught to think differently about her circumstance and not consider herself a victim.
Sam was a very good teacher and friend. She taught Michelle what it would take to get her children back using the principles that those who are millionaires used to become and then give back to their community.
The principles of this book were written on the left pages of the book. How Sam guided Michelle to learn and then use these principles were written on the right. For me this was a good way to help me understand some of these principles, reading how they were actually used in fictional real life.
So Michelle gave her father-in-law a wager that she would raise a million dollars in 1 year she would get her children back. If she didn’t she would leave the state and never bother them again. He took the wager and gave her a deadline which made her think about what she had just promised. He stated 90 days or no deal. She was going after a very precious goal, to get her children back, and now lost some confidence in herself, could she do it. She grew out of being a victim and learned the principles that Sam taught her.
Michelle did get her children back and became a victor instead of a victim.
Obviously, I skimmed over a lot and hopefully you get the idea of the book that you will want to read it. There was definitely a piece in the book that I want to leave you with:
