Books You Should Read To Grow Financially And Increase Your Wealth

I probably get asked this question more than any other: What books should I read to learn how to invest and build my wealth?

Most people will say you should read Rich Dad Poor Dad, The Intelligent Investor, or any book about Warren Buffet.

These are all good recommendations… but…

You will never grow financially or increase your wealth until you properly develop yourself.

Qualities like manners, confidence, knowing how to speak well, knowing how to connect with others, and numerous other characteristics of the wealthy are what you should learn first.

With that in mind, you should read all of the Dale Carnegie books. They are just as pertinent today, as they were decades ago.

Start with How to Win Friends and Influence People.

Then read The Quick and Easy Way to Effective Speaking.

And then move to How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.

Dale Carnegie has many more books and shorter guides available as well.

Your next author should be Napoleon Hill.

First, read Think and Grow Rich.

Then read Outwitting the Devil, which is my personal all time favorite book.

Most people believe that reading and then learning about some investing strategy will somehow lead them to riches. This is total BS.

Here is something that most people don’t like to hear: There is no magic key that unlocks riches.

There are, however, a variety of personality traits and actions that lead people to massive amounts of wealth.

  • Look at what Warren Buffet’s patience has created.
  • Watch any of Floyd Mayweather’s video profiles to see how insanely committed and confident he is.
  • Read about Bill Clinton’s intoxicating personality.

All of these wealthy people have much more than ‘investing know-how.’ They have first mastered their own selves in order to influence their surroundings.
