Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Anita Sharpe on Money

Hint: if you want to write a bestseller, put the word 'millionaire' in the title. Remember The Millionaire Next Door? New on the shelves is Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker, which shot to the top of the bestseller lists almost immediately after being released.

Unlike Millionaire Next Door, which served up the comforting advice that anyone can be rich by simply watching their nickels and dimes, Eker's counsel is a bit harsher: 'Comfort kills! If your goal in life is to be comfortable, I guarantee two things. First, you will never be rich. Second, you will never be happy. Happiness doesn't come from living a lukewarm life. . .'

I suspect Eker is more right than not. But what does that foretell for a society totally engineered for comfort -- where we step out of our climate-controlled houses into our climate-controlled cars, briefly pausing to observe that the 46-degree outside temperature seems 'freezing?'

I can assure you, one can be comfortable and happy. Now, will I ever be a millionaire? Almost certainly, not. I'm too busy being happy and comfortable.
