Regardless of how different we are, each and every one of us is trying to become financially free.
That’s like an international objective that everyone has, especially those who say that money isn’t important at all, because, in most of the cases, these are the people who work 9-5 for all of their life.
And that’s why you can’t expect yourself to become financially free while doing what everyone is doing. You have to take a different way, a different approach to distinguish yourself from others.
But all that different approach can’t be covered here, and neither do I have tried all those different approaches.
That’s why I suggest you 10 books that have the power to take you out of that 9 to 5 job cycle and can guide you towards achieving financial freedom.
These books had a tremendous impact on me and I am confident that they will certainly help you grow as well.
So let’s get started with the list of books.
1. Think and Grow Rich
The first book on the list is Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.
You probably already heard about this book because its one of the most popular and influential books available in the market and in Amazon bestsellers.
And the reason it is on the top of the list is because it is entirely focused on changing your perspective.
A lot of people jump into starting an online business without really understanding how business works or shifting their mindsets from an employee to a business perspective.
And then they wonder why isn’t their business is working and why they are constantly failing. And that’s why you have to read this book.
As becoming rich isn’t much about the type of business you start or a specific skill you master. It is rather more about finding the way you approach life in general.
Your mindset or perspective is the key factor in your success.
2. The Richest Man in Babylon
The book Think and Grow Rich is not much of a great read for those who don’t love reading books, especially kind of these books.
That’s why there is this book called The Richest Man in Babylon by George S Clason.
It is pretty much the same book as Think and Grow Rich but presented in an absolutely different way.
Most of the lessons are illustrated in a little story about two poor friends who are tired of being poor, even though they have been working hard all of their life and finally decided to do something about it.
So they go out and seek an advice from the man who was known at that times as the Richest Man in Babylon.
It is a very short and interesting book that doesn’t take much time and yet provides incredible value to the readers.
3. Money Master the Game
Another book on the list is Money Master the Game by Tony Robbins.
This is not a traditional book that is focused on general ideas to change your mind but rather it is more about giving you a practical advice on almost everything that is related to money.
Anything you have to know about money is somewhere there in one of the chapters.
This book will answer almost every single question you can think about it.
Unlike other books on this list, this one is pretty big with around 700 page, and I am sure a lot of you will struggle to read it but if you don’t have the will to read this book, you won’t have the will to achieve financial independence.
Let me tell you about the author.
Tony Robbins is a self-made millionaire and one of the best financial advisors out there and when you read the book, you will feel as if Tony included everything he knows about money in this book.
Trust me this book will worth your time.
4.Secrets of Millionaires Mind
It is one of my favorite books ever.
When you have a poor person mentality, it is really difficult to understand how rich people think because all what you see is that rich people simply have more money than poor for one reason or another.
Maybe they are just lucky, or simply inherited that wealth, or they have different genes.
But all of that are simply excuses that we come up to make ourselves feel good about ourselves.
And this book explains with practical examples of how rich and poor people look at the same thing with two completely different perspectives and that’s why one of them is rich and other is poor.
The author has done such a great job that even if you are not a consistent reader, you will still enjoy reading this book.
5. The 50th Law
Let’s finally move to the book that you must read regardless if you want it or not.
This is one of the books that had a significant impact on me personally because it is simply a masterpiece.
Unlike other books on this list that are directly related to financial freedom, this book is focused on the life of 50 Cent.
How he went from being this poor kid in the streets where the only hope for him was becoming a drug dealer and ending up in jail, to building a business empire that made him a millionaire.
The book is filled with lots of historical examples and completely shifts your perspective on everything you observe.
And after reading this book, you will make financial independence as your first priority in your life.
6. How Rich People Think
A book by
It’s based on a quarter century of interviews with millionaires.
If you’ve ever dreamed of living a life most people only see in movies, study this book like a scientist. Freedom from financial worries and a millionaire’s lifestyle is closer than you think.
Of course, there are lots of great books out there, but the purpose of this post was to focus on books that will give you a practical way to become financially free.
7. The Science of Getting Rich: Discover the Secrets to Wealth
The Science of Getting Rich: Discover the Secrets to Wealth by Wallace D. Wattles provides the intellectual framework of building personal wealth through positive thinking.
In his book, Wattles stresses the power of the human mind claiming that one’s way of thinking can attract or repel wealth.
According to him, there are certain laws that govern the process of acquiring riches. Once these laws are obeyed by any person, he will get rich with certainty.
8. The Automatic Millionaire
The Automatic Millionaire by David Bach explains that you do not need to get rich through a budget but with a well laid out plan.
