Most of us yearn to be able to have everything in life. Great health, looks, family, friends, and ultimately money. We have all wondered what it would be like to be truly “rich.”

This time I won’t give you a spiel on how being rich means having ultimate happiness and love.

No, I’m going to talk about having money. More money than you know what to do with. More money coming in than you can spend.

Rich Money

So I’m going to share a story with you about a book that changed my life.

A few weeks after my dad died, I was left with a house to take care of and a mom who has never worked in her life (and it’s completely okay). It finally hit me if I don’t make enough money, we won’t have a place to live, and could become homeless.

This fear occupied me. I couldn’t shake it for days. I realized the only way I could remove it was by making a lot of money. There needed to be action.

I went to the local library into the finance section, and there were all sorts of “money for dummies” books. I felt like I had enough knowledge of stocks, bonds, savings, and investments, so I needed something to grab my attention. Nothing did that day, and I went home (Anti-climatic, right?). Then a friend called and said he had just read a fantastic book about money called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” By Robert Kiyosaki.

The name had resonated with me as I had just lost my dad.

Reading this book allowed me to look at money in a completely different way than I have before. I am now on track to set up my life where I may not have to go work for a terrible boss in my late 40s. I can pull myself out of the rat race without having won a lottery, by literally doing “nothing.” Money will come in monthly, and I won’t have to do anything, but figure out what to spend it on.

Ultimately, for me, I want to spend my (anticipated future) riches on my kids, my wife, my family, and moments I would be grateful enough to experience. Everyone is free to spend their hard-earned money on whatever they want. Why do we always judge how people spend their money?

To be fair to the author, I won’t give the premise of the book away, but if you want to get rich from “nothing,” then you must start by reading this book. This is the get rich from nothing you have been looking for.
