25-Word Summary: Nik Halik’s The Thrillionaire is a personal insight into starting with struggles while thinking big. It’s time to play offence if you’re chasing results.
The Thrillionaire Nik Halik Book Summary
This book is old. In fact, it’s almost 10 years old. However, I had Nik’s book sitting on my well-stocked library for quite some time being left unread, so I was eager to open a page and start a journey.
Now, I’m no stranger to personal development. Over the years I’ve read hundreds of books, thousands of hours of video and have been too much of a seminar junkie. Tony Robbins anyone?
But what I like above all else is personal stories of success and struggle. I need to know how people got over hurdles that stood in their way. Not physically but mentally. In my experience, this is what creates propulsion.
The 3 core lessons
Of each book I read, I like to share 3 core lessons here on my blog. I hope this can inspire you to either read the full book instead of the summary or at least derive a small takeaway.
1. Become wildly optimistic
Nik Halik wasn’t born the conventional way. Without spoiling the story, he was confined to his bed during parts of his childhood, yet he had a dream.
Nik’s an advocate of enthusiasm. You can’t achieve anything without the energy to see your vision through to completion.
And that starts with working with what you’ve got at your disposal. What tools or resources do you possess that you can leverage at this time?
2. Focus on income stacks
No one gets rich in a job unless you’re the CEO. Reaching the top is reserved for a small percentage of the population.
Instead, Nik Halik proposes that we build income stacks. You need multiple pillars instead of relying on one stream.
This ties in well with Robert Kiyosaki’s philosophy of building pipelines. You don’t want to be carting water from the well to home every day.
3. Big dreams require massive action
Right – you’ve heard this before. You can’t achieve anything remarkable without consistent and focused action.
If you want the results, you’ve got to put in the work. No one else will do it for you unless you happen to still be an MLM scheme in 2020. Even so, you need to do the work to find those recruits as Nik previous did for his MLM ‘World Ventures’ some years ago.
You need to focus on the long term, not quick wins. Think about what you can achieve in the next 5 to 10 years, instead of the next 3 months.
The ideal reader
So, who is The Thrillionaire for? The person who is aware of their untapped potential and wants to learn from someone who’s been through some genuine challenges.
There are many of us who aspire to do big things for the world but are held back by capital and cash flow. The solution as Nik details is based on funnels, stacks and pipelines.
It’s been approximately 10 years since Nik first published this book of his personal story and accomplishments. Now, more than ever, have we got more opportunities available to us than ever before.
You may struggle to find a copy of this book in the wild. Nik has since published 5 Day Weekend, which as the cover suggests, proposes that we simply work 2 days per week. I’ll do a book summary of this one real soon.
The 9 to 5 grind is a model that works if that’s what you desire. I’m a proponent of people working in jobs that they enjoy.
However, the cost of that security is freedom. And if you’re looking for genuine freedom, then a personal development book like The Thrillionaire is where I’d be starting that journey today.
