1. “Think and grow rich” – Napoleon Hill
This book has sold more than 20 million copies and is, in fact, a mix from some wonderful thoughts from very successful men in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
It teaches you how to think, how to perceive the business world and how to make abundant wealth.
It also contains many inspirational and educational thoughts and anecdotes from a man like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and many more.
All I can say to you about this book is: you can become what you desire. You will need perseverance, hard work, and a proper mindset.
But, in the end, if you have all those things I bet you will succeed.
2. “The Millionaire next door” – Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D. William D. Danko, Ph.D.
Interesting title, isn’t it? Here you can read about financial habits of some millionaires. Also, the fact that some people can look just like ordinary people, but are indeed millionaires or even billionaires.
In the past, the men of wealth were known, they had family background, wealth, power. The 21st century changed it all.
Everyone has the potential of becoming a successful and wealthy person.
This book is worth reading, because it inspires by presenting you the millionaires of today, which could very well be ordinary, not well dressed, don’t have the family backgrounds, don’t spend a lot of money on style and image etc.
Imagine that your neighbor has a millionaire living next to him and that is you. How amazing would that be?
3. “The 4-hour work week” – Timothy Ferris
You will enjoy reading this book – it’s funny, it’s talkative. The title tells a lot. It’s about a group of people who spent, believe it or not, only 4 a week hours to make money.
Imagine that you have so much free time to make things that you love, things that fulfill you and yet, making wealth more and more. This is the book that explains how to do it.
If you want to have so much free time, way less stress in your life and so on.
Give this wonderful book a shot, and I promise it will make it worth your time while making you laugh while reading.
4. “Rich dad, poor dad” – Robert Kiyosaki
Are you maybe that one person that always works hard, but never earn enough? This is the right book for you. Also, if you are a young investor, I think this book is a must-read for you.
Rich dad, poor dad is a book that describes how to achieve financial independence. It counters the idea that if you go to school, get high grades and a good job you will have the good job that allows you your financial independence. This is very important because the system is set in such a way that by finishing your college you will be in so much financial depth, that it will take you a lot of time to come even close to zero.
It is a great inspirational book about the way you think for yourself as the best and how, in a different way you can have a look at both – money and business.
5. “The Intelligent Investor” – Benjamin Graham
The best investing book ever, and I’m not the one who says it!
Written by Benjamin Graham, one of the best investors in the 20th century and mentor of Warren Buffet.
The book is driven by its 3 principles of investing:
1. Intelligent investing – where you will get the idea how to invest, where to invest, never to chase fast and crazy profits and always to pay more attention to the company history and long-term evolution.
2. Never trust Mr. Market – describes how you should focus on doing your own research on the market and not paying so much attention to the current stocks or ups and downs.
3. Always stick to a strict formula – set a fixed budget you’re going to invest every month, and then invest that into the stocks you’ve previously picked – no matter the price.
Read this book and it will lead you to your investing success.
And keep in mind Graham’s words “Those who don’t remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
6. “The richest man in Babylon” – George S. Clason
Always work hard! This book teaches you how to separate your needs from your desires, at least in the way of expenditure. And the main idea of the book: Always save at least 10% of your income.
You have few simple rules of making money, that in my opinion will help you a lot. Appreciate the value of the money, be curious and never doubt to ask a good, close friend about advice – you will be like one of the richest men in Babylon.
7. “Secrets of the Millionaire mind” – T. Harv Eker
In only 2 and a half years, Eker moved from nothing to a millionaire.
In this book, the author tells you how to identify and revise your money blueprint in order to increase your income greatly and accumulate wealth.
Everything you know about money, in general, has been thought to you since your existence. It has been programmed in your brain and psych and in this book you are thought the 3 key money blueprint programming sources as well as how to reprogram it in order for you to make a great financial success.
You should really read this book, it will turn your world around. It will change your mindset in a way that you wouldn’t imagine and will make you a lot of money.
In the end, I would like to wish you the very best in whatever you do. And never forget: knowledge + hard work + positive thoughts = success for sure.
