Assets can put money in your pocket even when your sleeping or on a vacation having  a great time seeing the World. Liabilities take money from your pockets and make you poor. A house is not an asset as many people think. Unless it is a rental home, that pays you money to own it, it is a liability. Assuming your paying a mortgage, the home you live in could become an asset if you rented a room or two or three.

  • Wealthy People acquire assets to become Wealthy. Any surplus cash they receive from their assets is used to buy their luxury items.
  • The Rich get Richer by using their surplus cash to buy more assets to bring them even more surplus cash.
  • The Rich don't work for money. They Work for more Assets.

 3. The Richest Man in Babylon

 Richest Man in Babylon

 

 Babylon was on of the richest places in Ancient culture. This best selling business book takes us back there to revisit lessons and truths that are timeless and meaningful still today. A chariot maker, who had worked hard at crafting these vehicles for the wealthy of Babylon, realizes one day that all his hard work has brought him no real fortune or future for attaining it.

He is humbled and concerned at his predicament. He shares it with an old friend, a musician, who came by himself to borrow money from the chariot maker. They discuss their awakening to their problem, and attempt to analyze just how they reached a place with no savings for their future. And yet, a good friend of theirs had somehow risen to become the richest man in Babylon over the years.

How did he manage such a feat? Was he not just like they were growing up? There was nothing special about him that they could see as to why he was able to amass such great wealth.

They decided simply to go see him and ask him how he did it. The man was a good friend and spoke freely about how he had done it.

  • Essentially, he made his money work for him. "Learn to make your treasure work for you. Make it your slave. Makes its children and their children work for you."
  • Seek counsel of wise men who handle money everyday. Do not listen to sweet song of risk without counsel.
  •  The man's greatest lesson was this....Keep at least a tenth of all you earn for yourself. To grow and become even a greater sum.
  • The lesson he left them with was ultimately:

A part of all you earn is yours to keep.

Many other Parables in the book overlap the theme of building wealth but are artfully told, including" Seven Cures for a Lean Purse" and the "Five Rules of Gold".  It is a book about how to build wealth and become wealthy with wisdom from the mouths of men who did it. It is a timeless and a definite must read.

Think and Grow Rich

 

This best selling business book is about perseverance, desire and the will to achieve success. Written during the great depression, The Author starts off with a story many of us have likely heard. The man who found a goldmine that could have yielded him millions. He had borrowed from friends and family who believed in him, as he had hit some gold in the original strike.

After he raised money to buy the necessary equipment, he returned for his riches and they dug for their gold. They did not hit anymore gold after a few months, and the man gave up. He sold the equipment to a junk man for pennies on the dollar. The junk man hired a geologist to inspect the mine to see where the others went wrong. The geologist determined because of their lack of understanding of fault lines, they were just three feet away from striking it rich.

The junk man followed the geologists advice and struck gold and made millions.
