Suggested Reading for Self-Discipline & Financial Empowerment…
Here’s a few of the latest books I’ve had on my shelf, with a brief outline of the lessons to be learned from each. (I’ve been really on my “wealth-science” recently, so a lot of these selections reflect that drive.)
Since I haven’t done the “Recommended Scrolls” thing in awhile, I figured it would be cool to come back to it every so often. Knowledge This:
Recommended Scrolls for Self-Discipline, Financial Empowerment & More:
1.) Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (1000+ pgs): A life-changing novel about living a life of self-direction and authentic power, even amongst parasites, cowards and thieves. See the author’s wiki for more.
2.) The Art of Getting Money by Phineas Taylor Barnum (21 pgs): Don’t let the circus act stuff fool you, THIS CAT WAS DEE…here P.T. Barnum shares his mindset, strategies and lifestyle science as a set of “Golden Rules for Making Money.” (It’s a free pdf download by the way…check it out.)
3.) Healing the Shame that Binds You by John Bradshaw (240 pgs): A best selling psychologist, therapist and former theologian) talks healing internalized guilt. A great guide for resolving out your “issues” and finding emotional strength.
4.) A Physiological Discovery by Wallace Wattles (20 pgs.): Renowned author of “The Science of Getting Rich” builds on the science of ENERGY…specifically, how energy for work and productivity comes from electricity charged in our brains (NOT from the food we digest), and how to magnify that power.
5.) The Tao of Warren Buffet by Mary Buffet & David Clark (192 pgs.): Quotations and break downs to help guide you to billionaire wealth and enlightened business management. A quick, daily read first thing in the morning helps keep my mind on track…
6.) Daily Sex by Jane Sedden (can’t remember how many pages): 365 positions – and activities – for a year of amazing sex. Uses simple, non-graphic drawings and it’s funny too. Great conversation starter and addition to the bedroom library.
7.) Getting Black Folks to Sell by George Subira (211 pgs.): Belongs in every aspiring business man or woman’s library. A thorough introduction to the sales process with great insight on transcending the limiting beliefs that inhibit successful sales skills (tailored to the African-American audience, obviously).
Here’s me reading a great segment from it to get an idea (*download the mp3).
