Recommendation

If you go around humming, "If I were a rich man" from Fiddler on the Roof, it might be time to stop fiddling and go around reading instead. If wealth is your goal, man or woman, help yourself to a serving of some vintage Brian Tracy advice. He offers a tasty stew of maxims, aphorisms, anecdotes and general words of wisdom that will motivate you to become better at what you do, in order to become richer. Tracy is a walking oracle of motivation. If your desire to be wealthy seems like a pipe dream, wake up to the blend of information he has assembled. As the master of self-help books, Tracy offers practical advice, encouragement, motivation and effective techniques for self-improvement. In this book, he tells you how to help yourself to money. That's as good an invitation as we've seen anywhere. Now let's see if it works. In high hopes, getAbstract.com recommends Tracy's application of upbeat philosophy to the goal of accumulating wealth.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How to follow the specific paths to wealth;
  • Why becoming wealthy is a matter of habit, not accident;
  • How to observe what wealthy people do, and copy it repeatedly, so you can be wealthy, too; and
  • Why you should strive to become a "no limits" person.
