10 Best Wealth Building Books For 2017 – Guaranteed
In this post I will give you my top 10 list of books to read in 2017 that will help you to redefine your understanding of wealth and how you can feel and become wealthy. When I talk about wealth then I don’t just talk about the mere acquisition of money but about ways to find out how you can actually create real value both for you and for others.
This is the core essence for true wealth in my opinion. But this is not the end of the story. In order to be successful you need a clear vision or top-level goal that stands above all other goals and serves as your inner compass.
With this in mind you can commit to consistent action over an extended period of time. It is not just your vision and your enthusiasm about it that will make you succeed. Everyone is enthusiastic when starting out something new. But only few have the endurance to pursuit their main goal. This is basically all you need in order to become wealthy and successful.
Some of the books in the list have been best-selling books for years whereas others have been published just recently. But what they all have in common is that they can change the way you look at what you do for a living and why you do it. Further, they show you how you can overcome your self-set boundaries by a simple change of your mindset and constant action over time.
Multiply this with ten and 2017 will become your greatest year for acquiring true wealth and abundance. No more holding back from achieving your innermost desires and biggest dreams. Make it your top New Year’s resolutions to read at least one book out of the list in 2017.
