Now it's time to think about the Philosophy of money. I know it can be scary and stressful. I've ignored my debt and money problems for most of my life. Money has always been scary for me. I've ignored bills and wasted my money and time on a lot of stupid stuff. I am finally trying to take care of my money issues and yes it is a lot of work.
I think I have found the right books in order to create a good financial plan. Money is one of the most important aspect of our lives. The better we are with money, the better our lives can become. If you want a happy and successful life, getting educated and in control of your money situation is a nessecity.
The more money we have, the more time and freedom we can have. I am all about freedom.
Before we get to an actual financial plan, I want to reccomend some books about the philosophy and our ways of thinking that surround money. Dealing with money is a major cause of stress and anxiety. The more we can understand our feelings about finances, the more control we can have over them.
Remember that we can read all of the books and feel better about ourselfs for being smart. But if we don't take action and put that information to use, all of our knowledge is wasted.

Rich habits by thomas c. corley
This is a great little book with some great big ideas. It's really short so you can read it in an hour. Rich habits talk about 10 things we can do that can make a huge difference in our lives.
The book challenges us to follow these habits for 30 days. You'll see a drastic improvement if you do.
The habit that hit me the hardest was number 6. I will live each and every day in moderation. Unsuccessful people have little control over their lives they have wild swings in their moods which lead to strained relationships, strained health, and strained finances. I have never realized how important this is, and now I am aware of toxic behavior everywhere.
Rich habits is not specifically about money. The idea is to create a richer life for yourself while creating a better future. Within each habit, Corley talks about the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people. Successful people work hard to create good habits that ensure and easier and mor fullfilling life.
Rich Habits teaches us that successful people take responsibility for every aspect of their lives and strive to make it better.
the richest man in babylon by george s clason
This book is a fictional tale in which each chapter teaches a lesson about handling and saving money. Everyone wants a fat purse full of gold. But not everyone knows how to make their money grow.
This one is another very quick read. It contains a multitude of insights for saving and handling money. Readers will learn why it is so important to work with integrity and responsibility. You won't get very far if nobody trusts you, because no one will work with you.
The Richest Man in Babylon reinforces the mindset and princibles required to earn and keep your gold. If you don't learn to manage the money that you have, you will never be able to earn more.
I enjoyed this book because it read like a fiction novel, very fun and easy to read. The lessons are simple but profound.
secrtes of the millionaire mind by t. harv eker
This is last on the list about the psycology of success and finance. Eker is blunt with his teachings and information. He lays out the thought process toward thinking and acting in a way that will help you succed. Are you begining to see a pattern in philosophy here?
I learned that if you want to be rich, you can't have any negative feelings toward the rich. You can never become what you despise.
Anyone who tries to tell you that money isn't important is broke. If we don't take the time to learn about and control money, it will contol us.
We learn in here more specific ways that the rich and successful people think and act differently. Rich people understand that the more you can get your money to work for you, the less youw ill have to work. If you want to become more successful please pay close attention to Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
I do have one complaint about this book, Eker continues to advertise his millionaire mind training workshop throughout this book. But we can't let that distract us from the amazing advice and help that this book offers. If you want to complain about this, then you can continue being broke.
There is one chapter here that talks about creating a budget and I wish it was more in depth. I have followed what it says and I already feel a little more in control of my money.
In the next post I want to talk about great books that teach us about actual finances and budgeting.
