Title: The Richest Man in Babylon
Author: George S. Clason
Number of pages: approximately 144 pages
This is another book that I’d categorise as a must-read. Even though the book was written a long time ago, started in 1926 as a series of informational pamphlets, the principles are useful and applicable today nonetheless.
Bear in mind though that the way this book is written, it may present as quite hard to understand due to the use of classic English (to a certain extent).
The author talks about a number of timeless principles on how to get rich through stories and parables of the ancient Babylon. Many of the ideas presented are amazingly simple, yet most of us are not aware of them, thus sealing our fate to be cursed with a financial disaster.
Rules such as making sure you PAY YOURSELF FIRST are extensively elaborated, thus potraying the importance of that particular idea to assist us in our journey towards financial freedom.
To me, when it comes to wanting to become financially free, you need to develop the mindset of being “selfish” (sort of) and PAY YOURSELF FIRST before paying others (telephone companies, electricity bills, income tax, and etc.).
Anyway, go ahead and get the book. Well worth your money.
Read the book, absorb the wisdom, and make a lot of notes.
