Listen up, it’s free
You my friend, are very clever…
Only a select few each month search ‘The Richest Man in Babylon PDF’. But I have to ask, do you really like reading PDF’s?
Because you can get a paperback in your hands for $4.00. (just check the used options on Amazon – books regularly ship for 75% less).
(But PDF’s are free! And free is better.)
Well that’s definitely true. But why not save yourself the money AND inconvenience, by listening to it on Audible? It takes seconds to join, and if you’re truly as clever as you’ve demonstrated, it won’t cost you a cent!
…Now let’s get back to this book:
5 Lessons From The Richest Man In Babylon
This book, like no other, makes clear the importance of putting away money. Pay yourself first. And start now.
A few things you’ll learn:
- why you should start investing yesterday
- why you should repay debt
- how procrastination is robbing us
- why debt is the mentality of a slave
- how to put money away
1) You should start yesterday
“Our wise acts accompany us through life to please us and to help us. Just as surely, our unwise acts follow us to plague and torment us. Alas, they cannot be forgotten. In the front rank of the torments that do follow us are the memories of the things we should have done, of the opportunities which came to us and we took not.”
2) Repay debt
“thou contentedly let the years slip by and make no effort to repay, then thou hast but the contemptible soul of a slave. No man is otherwise who cannot respect himself and no man can respect himself who does not repay honest debts.”
3) Procrastination is robbing us
“No man willingly permits the thief to rob his bins of grain. Nor does any man willingly permit an enemy to drive away his customers and rob him of his profits. When once I did recognize that such acts as these my enemy was committing, with determination I conquered him. So must every man master his own spirit of procrastination before he can expect to share in the rich treasures of Babylon. “What”
4) The slave mentality
“I looked across into the uninviting distance and once again came to me the question, ‘Have I the soul of a slave or the soul of a free man?’ Then with clearness I realized that if I had the soul of a slave, I should give up, lie down in the desert and die, a fitting end for a runaway slave. “But if I had the soul of a free man, what then? Surely I would force my way back to Babylon, repay the people who had trusted me, bring happiness to my wife who had cared for me, bring peace and contentment to my parents.”
5) How to grow money
“If thou select one of thy baskets and put into it each morning ten eggs and take out from it each evening nine eggs, what will eventually happen?” “It will become in time overflowing.” “Why?” “Because each day I put in one more egg than I take out.” Arkad turned to the class with a smile. “Does any man here have a lean purse?” First they looked amused. Then they laughed.”
…) A clever word from a select few:
“What can a book written in the 1920s tell modern investors about their finances? A whole lot if it’s George Clason’s delightful set of parables that explain the basics of money. This is a great gift for a graduate or anyone who seems baffled by the world of finance and a wonderful, refreshing read for even the most experienced investor.”—Los Angeles Times
“I am continually amazed at how a book so small can contain so much content and be so powerful. This book should be mandatory reading beginning at the grade school level through college and should be given as a gift right along with a diploma. I took the advice of firstname.lastname@example.org who recommended ‘The Millionaire next Door” and “More Weath without Risk” and bought and have read both. Both of these books are in the same status as “The Richest Man in Bablyon” and should also be required reading by anyone who is serious about their financial future. I am now giving “Richest Man in Bablyon” as a accessory gift to a cash gift at weddings and graduations.”
