5 Must Read Books For The Financially Free Wannabe!

Just a quick post today listing my favourite 5 Must Read Books for the Financially Free Wannabe. I’ve read several of these books not once, not twice but up to 4 and 5 times, and each time I do, I learn something new or gain a fresh new way of looking at life, finances and my approach to work… I hope you find this list useful!

The Richest Man In Babylon Rich Dad Poor Dad Awaken The Giant Within 4 Hour Work Week Conspiracy Of The Rich

  1. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S Clason
    A very inspirational guide to personal finance and solving money problems which is presented via eleven ancient Babylonian tales, ultimately revealing the way to financial success. A very good read once you get your mind around the style of writing.
  2. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.
    Robert explains the theories and thinking behind his strategy and attitude to money. Written in a clear and easy to understand way, Robert illustrates striving to buy, build and create investments and assets that provide cashflow it’s entirely possible for anyone to achieve true financial freedom.
  3. Awaken the Giant within by Anthony Robbins
    One of the greatest Motivational Coaches of all time, Anthony Robbins shares his wealth of knowledge about how the human mind works and how we can condition ourselves to achieve more in our relatively short lifetimes. There’s some excellent exercises to help break bad habits and indeed form some very good habits when it comes to behaviour, work, money and life in general. Well worth a read.

  4. The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich
    by Tim Ferris.
    Again focusing on the passive income / cashflow concept, Tim illustrates how anyone can reduce the working week substantially by cutting out the crap and focusing on what really matters. While it’s hard for the average reader to achieve what Tim has, many of the techniques and theories detailed in this book can be applied by anyone wishing to Achieve and Earn more.
  5. Rich Dad’s Conspiracy of the Rich: The 8 New Rules of Money
    by Robert Kiyosaki
    I don’t like suggesting too many books by the same author incase it looks like I’m jumping on any bandwagons, but I can assure you I’m not when it comes to this book. An excellent eye opener with regard to the current financial crisis. Robert explains in laymans terms exactly how the Financial world confuse and bamboozle the average person for one specific reason – to make money! He explains exactly how many investments work and how we can cover our backs when it comes to investing and making money regardless of what the economy is doing. I’m currently putting into practice some of the ideas and concepts put forward in Conspiracy of the Rich and I’ll keep you up to date with my progress over the coming months.

All of these books have help change the way I think about money, saving & investing, and have set me on the way to retiring long before I reach 65! I hope you find them as beneficial as I do.

How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt and Live Prosperously

How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt and Live Prosperously

Millions of us have become trapped in a spiral of debt over the past decade, me included which is the reason I created this site, but there is hope. If you really want to free yourself from the shackles of debt which is becoming increasingly important in this current economic climate, then this book is definitely for you.

How to Get Out of Debt, Stay Out of Debt and Live Prosperously can help you “get out of debt, stay out of debt and live prosperously” just as the title suggests. The author Jerrold Mundis writes in a friendly, engaging style, urging readers to stop the endless cycle of spending. Mundis knows what he’s talking about, he too, was once thousands of (US) dollars in debt and didn’t know where to turn. Anecdotes from members of Debtors Anonymous, plus multiple examples from the writer’s own life and ledgers, make How to Get Out of Debt a very encouraging read, not a condescending one. Once you start your program, you may want to periodically reread some chapters for futher inspiration to keep you on the road to recovery.

Book Review: Top 10 Habits Of Millionaires – A Simple Path to Wealth and Fulfillment: Transform Your Thinking – and Get Rich by Keith Cameron Smith

Top 10 Habits Of Millionaires by Keith Cameron Smith

Top 10 Habits Of Millionaires by Keith Cameron Smith

I recently picked up a copy of this book and to be honest, didn’t think it would be that good… But then, you should never judge a book by its cover. Top 10 Habits of Millionaires by Keith Cameron Smith is a quick and to the point read, with its 10 points expressed concisely and very effectively. Normally it takes me weeks to read books as I only manange to grab a few minutes each day to read just a few pages at a time, but this one I couldn’t put down, and read it in just a few hours. The content is excellent and really helps you focus on the task ahead… Thinking like a millionaire… not spending like a millionaire… and ultimately achieving financial freedom.

Synopsis:

What does it take to become a millionaire – hard work, determination, a bit of luck? All of those help, but as entrepreneur and motivational speaker Keith Cameron Smith makes clear in this life-changing book, millionaire is first and foremost a state of mind. In The Top Ten Habits of Millionaires, Smith elborates ten key principles that animate the millionaire mindset – habits that can be learned and mastered by anyone who wants to improve their financial position, including:

  • Millionaires think long term – Create a clear vision of the life you desire and focus on it
  • Millionaires talk about ideas, not things and people
  • Ask positive ‘what if’ questions every day and bounce ideas off successful people who will be honest with you
  • Millionaires embrace change – Be patient while change is unfolding and find the hidden benefit
  • What you believe about money has everything to do with how much money you will make.

All of this is sound and sensible advice… Yes, I’ve read similar things in other books, but reading them all in such a concise and focused manner helps them sink in even further and prepare and program your mind for wealth in abundance.
