Everyone would agree that from elementary to college you are in a constant state of learning. The unfortunate reality is that the majority of these people will never pick up a book once their formal education has ended. The first step to becoming wealthy is to understand the world around you and learn how to manipulate it in your favor. The easiest way to do this is READ!!!!! There are tens of thousands of books that teach you techniques on increasing your net value (ie. stock market techniques, starting your own business, real estate investing etc….). Along with this wide range of topics, there are also many different ways to learn the information. If you are at a computer all day you can read from legitimate and trusted websites and blogs. If you are in your car all day, you can listen to audio books. There are magazines, regular run of the mill books, videos, blah blah blah. What we are trying to get across is that there are NO EXCUSES!!!!!!
We believe that the #1 reason people remain broke is that a failure to pick up a book has sheltered them from the many opportunities that are right in their face. The founders of MoneyIsJustAnIdea.com read at least one book per month and this is what allows us to remain successful. So to help you get motivated we have added a book list. These books have been read and are highly recommended by experts and not just us…lol. If these books do not work for you please follow the step below:
Step 1: Go to a book store
Step 2: Go to the financial/investment/business section of the bookstore
Step 3: Look at the different sections and browse through at least one book in each section
Step 4: While browsing you will find an area that is of interest to you
Step 5: Now DO NOT buy the first book that says the #1 seller; At this point go home and research books in that field until you find the ones that are highly recommended by experts in that field
Step 6: Either go back to the book store to buy the book or purchase online.
Step 7: READ THE ENTIRE BOOK!!!!
After the first one is out of the way the rest are a breeze and you will be reading at least one book a month in no time. You are now on your way to a wealthy and healthy lifestyle.
