5 Books For Better Money Habits


I’m all about mindset, goal-setting, and using success principles to improve your personal finances. A huge part of improving finances is to cultivate better money habits.

These are the exact books that I frequently refer to when I need to “get my mind right”.  These books will not only transform your relationship with your money, but they will also help you learn how to build better habits in other areas of your life.

I have read each of these books more than once and I recommend them to my friends and family who want to take the initiative to do better in life and create better money habits.

1. Secrets of The Millionaire Mind by, T. Harv Eker

Author’s Description: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker’s rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and “revise” it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it.

In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen “Wealth Files,” which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth.

If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that’s exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it’s simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you’ll get rich too!

2. Your Money or Your Life by, Vicki Robin and Joe Dominguez

Author’s Description: In an age of great economic uncertainty when everyone is concerned about money and how they spend what they have, this new edition of the bestselling Your Money or Your Life is an essential read. With updated resources, an easy-to-use index, and anecdotes and examples particularly relevant today-it tells you how to:

• Get out of debt and develop savings
• Reorder material priorities and live well for less
• Resolve inner conflicts between values and lifestyle
• Save the planet while saving money
• And much more!

3. Stop Acting Rich:And Start Living Like A Real Millionaire by, Thomas J. Stanley

Author’s Description: With well over two million of his books sold, and huge praise from many media outlets, Dr. Thomas J. Stanley is a recognized and highly respected authority on how the wealthy act and think. Now, in Stop Acting Rich and Start Living Like a Millionaire, he details how the less affluent have fallen into the elite luxury brand trap that keeps them from acquiring wealth and details how to get out of it by emulating the working rich as opposed to the super elite.

4. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by, Stephen R. Covey

Author’s Description: Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People took the self-help market by storm in 1990 and has enjoyed phenomenal sales ever since. The integrated, principle-centered 7 Habits philosophy has helped readers find solutions to their personal and professional problems and achieve a life characterized by fairness, integrity, honesty, and dignity.

5. The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by, Charles Duhigg

Author’s Description: At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.
