The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth should absolutely be the next book you read. In fact, if you read only one (non-human-authored) book this year, I encourage you to choose The Instant Millionaire by Mark Fisher.
(Of course, then I’d encourage you to read the rest of the books I recommend on Self Help Daily – one by one. After all, books can encourage, motivate, enlighten, and inspire. Who wants to miss out on any of that?)
My great love of books and my eagerness to publish book reviews – recommending the best of the best to my friends (that would be you) – often creates a bit of a quandary for me. I read so many great books that sometimes I fear that truly outstanding ones (such as The Instant Millionaire) will get lost in the masses. There are times I wonder if each book I recommend will be able to stand on its own two brilliant feet.
However, I saw something the other day that alleviated this book worm’s fears: A Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. They’ve given out gazillions of these honors – the total surpasses even the number of books I’ve read… this year, anyway. Yet each one of their recommendations more than stands on its own two feet, it stands tall.
Which is my fervent hopes for the books I recommend. As I often remind you, I don’t recommend each book I read. Remember the song by Salt & Pepa, Push It. The great voice at the first of the song says, “Now wait a minute, y’all. This dance ain’t for everybody. Only the sexy people. So all you fly mothers, get out there and dance. Dance I say.”
In an equally dramatic voice, that’s what I say to my very, very favorite books – aka the ones that blow my socks off. So here is my review for one such book. A fly mother, to be sure.
The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth by Mark Fisher is a highly unique book. It is exactly as the title suggests: A tale. A fictional story – as in colorful characters, a plot, unexpected twists, drama, humor, and the whole shebang. However, the lessons to be taken away from the entertaining story are more than worth the time and money you invest in them. You’re apt to learn as much, or more, from this book than any book you’ve read in a very long time.
This book has the potential to change your life in ways you never imagined. One of the main reasons is that it reminds you just how important your thoughts are. Your thoughts build your world or they tear it down. In this remarkable little talk, Mark Fisher does a beautiful job of illustrating the difference between constructive thoughts and destructive thoughts.
Below are the 3 main reasons I’m so excited about The Instant Millionaire. These, added to the fact that the book reads fast (although I promise you that you’ll want to read it through several times) AND meets my much-ballyhooed “Treadmill Criteria,” meaning I was able to hold the book and read it as I worked out on the treadmill. You know the drill, bonus points are awarded to books that allow me this luxury.
- The Instant Millionaire opens up a door that leads to a new way of thinking. Not only are you challenged to look at the world and everything in it in a different light when it comes to money, you’re challenged to do so in other areas as well. In reality, everything in life is a matter of attitude.
- The Instant Millionaire opens up a gate that leads to a new view of life. You will realize that the world, as you know it, was created by YOU. Your every thought has led to your every action, which ultimately have led you to the world that you currently know. When your mind wraps itself firmly around this truth… look out! You’ll learn how to harness your thoughts and make them work for you.
- The Instant Millionaire opens up a world where you’re only limited by the limits you set yourself. Everything that happens to us is a product of our thoughts. Positive affirmations spring from this powerful reality. Life is, to a very real extent, exactly how you see it. What’s more, we tend to get from life what we expect from it.
Are you as struck by that truth as I am? We tend to get from life what we expect from it. What do you say, is it time to raise the bar high or what?! I promise you this: The Instant Millionaire is the first step in raising this bar, higher than you ever dared to before.
“All the events in your life are a mirror image of your thoughts.” – The Instant Millionaire, Page 46
The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth contains the single most profound example of the power of words I’ve ever read. It’s something that happens to the main character in Chapter 8 – something that makes you stop and truly think. You’re along for the ride with him and you FEEL what he’s going through. Suffice to say it’s more than an AHA moment, it’s an Oh Wow moment. I won’t give it away here because…
- I want you to read the entire book.
- It’ll have more of an impact if you meet it head on.
It’s not an overstatement to say that it’s one of the most powerful illustrations regarding the power of words I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty much THE illustration that all of us who are huge believers in positive affirmations have been looking for our entire lives. It’s proof, positive, that words (whether they’re the ones we say to ourselves or words others say to us) carry far more weight that we give them credit for.
In most cases reasoning and logic become roadblocks in the way of great achievement, because great things are created only by those who have faith in the powers of the mind. – The Instant Millionaire
The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth will show you how you have been getting in your own way and, more importantly, it’ll show you how to get out of the way. I read a GREAT DEAL of books that relate to self help, self improvement, mental fitness, positive affirmations, attracting success, and so forth. Let’s be honest, I swim in the ocean of these books daily.
However, this particular little book has stopped me in my tracks and has caused me to dig deep into my own cellar of thoughts. I honestly wish I could put a copy of this book into everyone’s hands – I feel that it’s that important.
I urge you to go immediately to Amazon (by clicking the following link) and order your copy of this outstanding book. It’s only 121 pages and, as I’ve said, it reads very fast. I believe most people could read this book in the time it takes them to read the newspaper. However, when you put the newspaper down, you aren’t any better off for having read it. When you put The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth down, you will have taken the first giant step to raising the bar higher. What’s more you’ll have the tools, keys, affirmations, and knowledge you’ll need to sail right over the bar with room to spare.
So all you fly mothers, get out there and soar. Soar I say.
