Many financial readings can provide you with fresh perspectives on personal finance or strategies you’ve never considered before or inspire you to take charge of your financial future.
In honor of World Book Day on March 4th, we’ve compiled this list of five financial readings for you to read in 2022. Regardless of your stage in life or financial goals, you’re sure to learn something from each of these books:
When it comes to personal finance books, Rich Dad, Poor Dad is one of the most famous. It was published in 1997 and made the Best Amazon Best Seller list in 2021. This book contains powerful stories from the author’s biological father, who was educated but financially unsavvy, and his friend’s father, an uneducated salesman but clever with money. This financial reading reinforces how important it is to manage your money to help you achieve financial independence, security, and peace of mind.
The Millionaire Next Door explains that wealthy people don’t spend money on fancy cars or designer clothing. Instead, they live below their means and allocate their time, energy, and money as efficiently as possible. Most have worked hard for everything and have economically self-sufficient adult children. They prioritize relationships with family and friends over outward displays of their financial success. This financial reading is only number two on our list of 5.
Your Money or Your Life focuses on many people who are “making a dying” more than a living. The author writes that while we need to work to pay our bills, most of us live above our means and spend our hard-earned money on things we don’t use or care about. The authors explain that you might feel better if you stop overspending and focus on what brings you genuine fulfillment.
The Millionaire Fast Lane is divided into three sections: the sidewalk (to poverty), the slow lane (to mediocrity), and the fast lane (to wealth). The book describes why a high income won’t necessarily make you wealthy and the secret to starting your own business. The author states that people don’t get rich by luck or faith. Instead, they pair a plan with the right mindset.
Published in 1937, Think and Grow Rich was written by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s advisor and revolves around thirteen principles everyone should adopt if they want to be successful. The book outlines what wealthy or successful individuals all have in common. They set a goal, dedicate all of their energy toward it, and never give up.
