Four | The Thin Green Line: The Money Secrets of the Super Wealthy

The Wealth Matters columnist of “The New York Times” reveals the habits, worldviews, and practices that lead to true wealth and why it s more important to be wealthy than rich.

For the better part of the past decade, Paul Sullivan has written about and lived among some of the wealthiest people in America. He has learned how they save, spend, and invest their money; how they work and rest; how they use their wealth to give their children educational advantages but not strip them of motivation. He has also seen how they make horrendous mistakes. Firsthand, Sullivan knows why some people, even rich people, never find true wealth, and why other people, even those who have far less are much wealthier.

Sullivan is part of the The One Percent today, but he came from far humbler roots, starting life in the bottom twenty-five percent. This personal book shows how others can make better financial decisions and come to terms with what money means to them. It lays out how they can avoid the pitfalls around saving, spending and giving their money away and think differently about wealth to lead more secure and less stressful lives. An essential complement to all of the financial advice available, this unique guide is a welcome antidote to the idea that wealth is a number on a bank statement.”

Six | A Happy Pocket Full of Money, Expanded Study Edition: Infinite Wealth and Abundance in the Here and Now

True wealth is not about buckets of cash. True wealth is not about designer clothes. It is not about a new Mercedes. It is not about living in a palatial estate. True wealth, asserts David Gikandi, is about discovering value within yourself and value within other people. It is about a kind of conscious living that incorporates gratitude, a belief in abundance, and the experience of joy.

Based on the recent discoveries of theoretical physics and a close reading of inspirational classics of the last century, Gikandi creates a new model for the creation of personal wealth; a new model that shows readers how to create abundance by saving, giving, offering charity, and building happy relationships.

Learn to use an internal mantra to build wealth consciousness.Practice conscious and deliberate thoughts and intentions.Decide, define, and set goals you can believe in.Practice gratitude, giving, and faith, and experience abundance and joy in your life.

Seven | Why You Aren’t Rich: The Secrets Holding You Back from Wealth

When it comes to you and your money, it is important to remember that your income can only go as far as you can. Do you know anybody who has ever won the lottery? Studies actually have found that people who have suddenly won or inherited large amounts of money often end up losing it all after several years-and it’s likely not a coincidence. In many of these cases, these people did not have what it takes to handle their money, mentally. Interestingly, people who have worked themselves into being millionaires can often incur financial tragedies and still manage to get back on their feet within a short period of time.Think about it-if you believe that you don’t deserve a lot of money, will you be successful in handling it? If you have a shopping addiction and you do nothing to overcome it, what will your wallet look like?

Does your character reflect your income? The point is that your financial situation will often reflect who you are as a person-the more successful you are in personal growth, the more your earning potential can be. If you’re the type of person who has the ability to exert willpower and discipline when it comes to kicking bad habits, going after goals, and being honest with yourself about your finances, chances are you’ll be much more well-off financially.

The key to setting yourself up for financial success is to start from within. It is very easy to dream of becoming a millionaire, living in a mansion, and driving behind the wheel of a brand new car-but first, you must prepare yourself to get all of those things. Money doesn’t grow on trees but it does grow from desire and ambition.

Think back to school when you learned about cause and effect-there is an effect for every cause-your weight is an effect of what you eat, your knowledge is an effect of your desire to learn, and your money is an effect of what you do to earn and manage it.
