3 AWESOME READS FOR WEALTH AND LIFE INSPIRATION
What is wealth?
It is important to define what wealth means to you because it changes from person to person. The definition of wealth according to the dictionary is “an abundance of valuable possessions or money, and a plentiful supply of a desirable thing”.
You can therefore conclude from the definition that wealth might mean making boat loads of money, while to someone else, their measure of success (and thereby wealth) might be a famous scientist maybe with a wealth of knowledge. The ultimate authority in a particular field.
Whatever the motivation, here are three highly regarded books that a lot of the gurus (think of famous people who went on to start multi million dollar companies).
These 3 awesome reads for wealth and life inspiration are in no particular order. Each was selected to cater to a different mindset with all three combined to round out a full on regrouping and way of thinking going forward.
This book has been a bestseller for 25 years. It is quite inspirational. It motivates you to set your goals with a win/win mindset. There’s a reason why it has sold over forty million copies and continues to top the charts. Supposedly read by top business leaders. I skimmed it a very long time ago and remember being empowered.
I am planning on reading it again in the near future for some more life lessons, because hey, 40 million people can’t be wrong! The change in attitude has to come from within and this one helps you identify what personal behavior you need to modify or cater to in order to lead a more effective and better life. Human beings being creatures of habit, this forces you to concentrate on the good habits.
A very common book in the Early Retirement and Personal Finance forums, which is where l discovered it as well. The advice given might have been revolutionary when it was first published and now it’s almost a given, what with the internet and all. The most important takeaway is to live below your means and watch your money grow.
The constant need to keep up with the Joneses will only drain your funds. I for one used to love changing my car every couple of years back when l still lived in Hollywood (it was just the lifestyle creep) and l always bought new.
After reading this book, I was able to change my mindset. The last vehicle l bought was a used, but new to me BMW 540i that l not only purchased for almost $50,000 less than the new price thanks to depreciation (it had just come out from a 2-year lease and was in sparkling new condition) but one that l used for just under 9 years, then sold for a really good price.
The proceeds funded one whole year of living in Malta! While I try not to dwell on mistakes of the past, but l wish I’d read the book sooner. Lesson learned.
By now, pretty much everyone knows who this firecracker of a woman is. At any time of day all over the world, one of her shows is most likely playing on a TV screen. Surely you’ve heard of “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Scandal” and her latest “How to Get Away With Murder” .
Most recently, her Shondaland endeavors have extended to the streaming world via her new worldwide hit called Bridgerton. Make sure to watch it on Netflix if you like a historical romance set in London’s high society. Not my cup of tea after an episode.
Her strong female characters have become trademarks of her shows. That alone should inspire. In this book, she writes about being an introvert who finally decided to come out of her shell, thanks to a random statement from one of her sisters. The challenge was to say “Yes” to things and it transformed her life. I am trying for my own year of yes 🙂 as l tend to be introverted as well.

Wrap-Up on the 3 awesome reads for wealth inspiration:
One thing l have found to be helpful to me is to have inspirational quotes and motivational sayings somewhere in my vicinity at all times. I am still old fashioned in some ways, and use a calendar still that l write my appointments or chores in, and each day has a different quote.
I find these quotes inspiring and a lot of times, they keep me motivated, even when l have a setback. You might think of different ways to implement this into your life. It could be through a mailing list where you get your quotes daily ( I have used this one for years).
Often by changing our quality of thinking, we can change our quality of life. Think of how you feel when someone lightens your mood with a simple smile.
All these titles are available on Amazon as shown (affiliate link). You might even be able to get them free if you try the Amazon Audible, but you would need to cancel before the 30 day trial period is over! Don’t say you weren’t warned :-).
