Think and Grow Rich
I don’t think any self-help book in the world has been as effective as Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. The book was written after nearly 25 years of research on hundreds of successful men and their habits. And, is perhaps the most popular book in the entire self-help industry.
In this Book, Napoleon Hill has listed 13 strong principles and dedicated a chapter to each principle and said, these are the most significant traits required to become successful in life.
Those 13 principles are:
• Specialized Knowledge
• Organized Planning
• Decision, Persistence
• Power of Mastermind
• Sexual Transmutation
• Subconscious Mind
• Brain and finally
• The Sixth Sense
According to Napoleon, if an individual aims to be successful, then he should have the above traits. If you analyze any rich individual, first and foremost, he has a strong desire to be rich and become richer. That is then supported by other aspects such decisions, persistence, specialized knowledge and sixth sense.
If you’re to become wealthy in life, then you ought to checkout Think and Grow Rich. It has probably more millionaires than any other course ever.
Rich Dad Poor Dad
Rich Dad Poor Dad is another gem of a book created by Robert Kiyosaki. The book has literally changed hundreds of thousands of lives with its profound understanding about how money works.
In this book, Robert basically explains people on how to become wise and more intelligent with money. He narrates his story and says that, he had two dad’s; one is the rich dad and the other is the poor dad.
He talks about the difference between these two men. And, discusses about how one always talked about finding a good job whereas the other talked about building a business and creating jobs for others.
According to Robert, becoming rich is all about making the money work for you rather than working for money. Isn’t that a really deep thought? Of course, it is.
If you look around, every rich individual is either an investor or a business owner. For all these people, money works for them; none of them work for money.
According to Robert, working for money would involve you to be in the rat race just like hundreds and thousands of people. And, that is not how the rich people work. They’re smart, circulate their money intelligently and get high returns.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is one of the best books if you’re looking to gain financial freedom.
