There are quite a few very well written books on becoming rich one can find when going back into history but for me personally, there are three that stand out. Each one of the authors I will reveal to you has given his books a special twist by combining this intriguing topic with key elements from human psychology, quantum physics and spirituality.
Without further ado, I present to you three masters that have conquered my mind with their wisdom, experience, discipline and perseverance. Their valuable teachings enable us to activate our superhuman capabilities to transform our way of thinking and acting in order to create abundance.
1. The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles
This is probably the single most precise book that teaches one how to think and act in the “Certain Way” in order to become rich. No other book I’ve read or am aware of, is as simple and straightforward in explaining exactly what needs to be done in order to become abundant.
Although a classic, the book is a hands-on practical manual that shows you exactly why it’s important to be rich as well as how to attain money in order to increase your life aka “rise to your greatest possible height in talent or soul development”.
With its 52 pages, The Science of Getting Rich is a must-read for every serious business owner and entrepreneur who wants to live a blissful, fulfilled and abundant life.
“THOUGHT is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance. (…)
We live in a thought world, which is part of a thought universe. (…)
Man is a thinking centre, and can originate thought. (…)
The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment. (…)
The law of the Increase of Life is as mathematically certain in its operation as the law of gravitation; getting rich is an exact science.”
I highly recommend this book for all of you looking to generate money by becoming a creator and deploying the creative method rather than forcing your way through life on the plane of competition.
2. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
I’ve seldom come across a high-performer in business who hasn’t studied and applied the teachings of Napoleon Hill in a detailed manner.
The 13 proven steps to riches are the result of 25 years of thorough research including hundreds of hours of interviews and meetings with business tycoons such as Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Thomas Edison or Alexander Graham Bell just to name a few of them. Known today as the Andrew Carnegie formula for money-making, the principles enclosed in this book have transcended time and space. If implemented accordingly they will ultimately lead one to a rich and abundant life.
“There can be no compromise between POVERTY and RICHES! The two roads that lead to poverty and riches travel in opposite directions. If you want riches, you must refuse to accept any circumstance that leads toward poverty. (The word “riches” is here used in its broadest sense, meaning financial, spiritual, mental and material estates). The starting point of the path that leads to riches is DESIRE”.
What sets both above-recommended books apart from the usual manuals, guides and documentations you’ll find on this subject, is the broader definition of riches. Living a rich and abundant life goes way beyond the accumulation of material things. It is a state of mind that encapsulates all aspects of a human life.
3. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason
The third book in this series is another classical one in the realm of money and finance. The principles described here are as applicable today as they used to be thousands of years ago in ancient Babylon.
One of the most important laws this book brings across very explicitly is the principle of paying yourself first.
“A part of all you earn is yours to keep. It should be not less than a tenth no matter how little you earn. It can be as much more as you can afford. Pay yourself first”.
Short, sharp and punchy, this exclusive set of parables comprised in the booklet will help you reframe and reprogram aka get rid of all the wrong ideas, suggestions and principles you’ve learned about wealth in the past.
Learning from Legit Masters
Information and reading material on becoming financially successful has never been more abundant and readily available, yet one needs to be extremely careful and vigilant not to fall for the common advice which will most likely lead to nowhere.
Differentiating the good from bad, the legit from scam has become an art fewer and fewer people master. The authors of the amazing books presented in this article have partly gone through extreme hardship to accumulate wealth. Their wisdom and experience should not be taken lightly nor their willingness to share these secrets with the common people.
It is everyone’s right to become rich and live a healthy, blissful and fulfilled life. The desire and ultimately, the decision to follow the path laid out by these masters is totally up to you.
