I feel a personal transformation coming on. I think there is some Buddhist quote that says that wisdom can come from the most unlikely places.\u00a0 And while this transformational wisdom is coming from a book (which isn\u2019t all that unusual), it\u2019s the title of the book that isn\u2019t exactly what I\u2019d call transformational.\u00a0 The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime by MJ DeMarco (@MJDeMarco) \u00a0has a title that says "get rich quick" all over it--and I don't go for that.\u00a0 It\u2019s got a picture of a Lamborghini (which actually plays a pivotal role in the book)--and I don\u2019t go for that, either. So how in the world was I going to get transformed by a book that I probably wouldn\u2019t have picked up if it weren\u2019t recommended to me by a friend and then showed up for review a few days later? Will the Regular, \u201cEveryman\u201d Business Success Please Stop Showing Me What\u2019s Possible? As I write this, Millionaire Fastlane has clocked in as the third book I\u2019ve picked up in three days that talks about a \u201cregular guy\u201d who could have been a loser \u00a0but had an epiphany about how to make millions, did it and is now writing a book about it as he reflects on his success and decides to share his secrets with the rest of us poor chumps who just haven\u2019t gotten it yet. Granted, the transformation hasn\u2019t quite happened for me \u2013 I\u2019m only on the first couple of chapters that go through MJ\u2019s history as a wanna-be millionaire with wishes and dreams that just weren\u2019t happening.\u00a0 Of course, just like watching those \u201cI Shouldn\u2019t Be Alive\u201d documentaries, I know that he succeeds in the end, so now I\u2019m just trudging through the story, waiting to see how his story will be different from so many others. I assure you transforming my thinking is the last thing on my mind. Millionaire Fastlane \u2013 0 to 322 Pages in 60 Seconds The book is written in eight parts.\u00a0 Parts one through four introduce us to the author, his story, his obsession with how a young dude got his hands on a Lamborghini before cashing his first Social Security check and grabbing a trophy wife, and why the \u201cget rich slow plan\u201d is a vast conspiracy designed to keep most of society down. But wait! (Can you feel the transformation coming yet?) \u00a0I\u2019ve often joked (without really joking) that I was on the get rich slow plan.\u00a0 Most of us already know that the phrase \u201cget rich quick\u201d is synonymous with scams, pipe dreams and fools.\u00a0 So if you don\u2019t sign up for that pitch, isn\u2019t the opposite \u201cget rich slow\u201d?\u00a0 How can getting rich slow be bad? In parts five through eight, DeMarco\u2019s aim is to open your eyes to the fact to the fact that hard work, commitment and just seeing the world through the eyes of \u201cproduction\u201d instead of \u201cconsumption\u201d will reveal opportunities that will make your hard work, commitment and patience pay off in exponential spades. He gives you those in-your-face nuggets of wisdom, delivered using a turbo-toned surfer style.\u00a0 But don\u2019t underestimate DeMarco\u2019s point.\u00a0 He\u2019s a man who\u2019s seen the light and he\u2019ll open your eyes to it, using nothing other than mathematical proof, logic and removing the filter of fear that confines so many of us into thinking so much smaller than we are capable of. Speedy Samples of Thoughts, Quotes and Ideas That Will Transform How You Run Your Business and Your Life I\u2019ve decided to pull more than a few quotes from the book that will help you see yourself in at least one of the \u201cslow lane\u201d thought patterns. Get rich quick on a whim or event is a joke.\u00a0 Get rich quick on a process is reality. \u00a0If you\u2019re servicing clients one by one without a brand or a process, you\u2019ve got a job, not a business.\u00a0 A business is a process that creates value and has value. \u201cIncome-poor and income rich share the same result, just different scenery.\u00a0 More money is not a solution to poor financial management.\u201d\u00a0 Are you making investments or just spending?\u00a0 There\u2019s a difference.\u00a0 Society has bastardized the meaning of wealth to incorporate luxury items.\u00a0 Yet you\u2019ll find that the true wealth experience comes from strong family and relationships with people, fitness, vitality and the joy of physically moving through space and the freedom to do what you like, when you like and with whom you like.\u00a0 Of course, having lots of money helps grease these skids but it shouldn\u2019t define them. Instant gratification is the bait; servitude is the hook.\u00a0 Self-made millions come from self-made luck. \u201cProcess creates events that others see as luck.\u201d\u00a0 If you\u2019re running a business, you are out in the world, not on the couch.\u00a0 People who are interacting in the world are meeting with opportunity To consume richly, produce effectively. \u00a0\u201cAs a producer, your job is to entice consumers to buy.\u00a0 Producers get rich. Consumers get poor.\u201d I can go on and on with these\u00a0 - the book is loaded with them.\u00a0 And believe me, they are thought- and life-changing ways of looking at the world. Read This Even if You\u2019re Not a Lamborghini Lover Maybe it\u2019s just me, but I could have done without the constant Lamborghini references.\u00a0 And at the same time, this book so desperately needed a theme to hold the myriad big insights that it contained.\u00a0 I\u2019m afraid that without the fast car, fast lane, slow lane, sidewalk framework, the message would have been completely lost. Millionaire Fastlane is a book for the serious business owner who is building a money-making machine.\u00a0 It\u2019s for the business owner who is committed to living a balanced life and enjoying the fruits of his or her labor. My thinking about my business, my purpose and my mission has been transformed by this book. The big question now is, where will I make the trade-offs? \u00a0And after reading this book, I will see them as trade-offs because now I know the mindset behind real wealth\u00a0 When you read this book, you\u2019ll know too.
