I did recently, it was a good refresher but not "life-changing".
The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

I felt like it focused too much on outliers to be really helpful. Just because those strategies worked for the teeny tiny percentage of people who became very rich doesn't mean they will work for the vast majority of regular people.
I blog about Mustachianism during the child-raising years at frugalparagon.com.

And I tell the real story in my journal, https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/journals/still-living-well-in-the-living-room-but-what's-my-next-move/

Well, first of all, NO strategy will work for ALL people in ALL circumstances.

Not having read the book, did those strategies only work for a teeny tiny percentage of people because only a teeny tiny percentage of people have tried them?

The reason I ask is because most people in the USA will discount the strategies that MMM fans use for the same reason...

EDIT: Never mind, thought you were talking about Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker, not The Millionaire Mind by Thomas J. Stanley.  Only read TMND by him, not TMM.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

When I first saw the thread title I thought it would be about T. Harv Eker.  If it was, my honest opinion would be to walk away FAST.  Just my opinion.
