BOOK REVIEW: The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason

    #Money Makes the World Go Round

    This is the story about #saving, making money and enlarging the money (honey) pot, presented in fabulous historical tales of ancient Babylon, but all the wisdom is applicable 6000 years later, that is today and most probable will be throughout eternity.

    Like the law of gravity, these laws of money are universal and unchanging.

    Money is the medium by which earthly #success is measured.

    Money makes possible the enjoyment of the best the earth affords.

    Money is plentiful for those who understand the simple laws that govern its acquisition.

    Money is governed today by the same laws which controlled it when prosperous men thronged the streets of Babylon.

    Money is plentiful for those who understand the simple rules of its acquisition. Here are the 7 rules you will find in the book:

    1. Start thy purse to fattening
    2. Control thy expenditures
    3. Make thy #gold multiply
    4. Guard thy treasures from loss
    5. Make of thy dwelling a profitable investment
    6. Insure a future income
    7. Increase the ability to #earn

It is amazing, to think about how many millennia before human race accomplished so much, and yet we evolved so little in our attitudes, because most of us indeed measures success with money.

    It is 194 pages long book, read it if you haven’t by now and even better buy several copies for the young people you know – they should prosper the most with it.

    Oh, you should also now it was written in 1926 and hardheartedly recommended by Jim Rohn. If you follow his work you will notice he says out of 100 people to whom he recommends the book maybe only two or three actually read it. Talking about procrastination you will find tale on this unfortunate way of most men on page 70 (depending of the copy you have it will be in the “Meet the Goddess of Good Luck” part of the book.

    Let me finish with these quotes:

    “The spirit of procrastination is within all men…yet how often when opportunity doth appear before us, that spirit of procrastination from within doth urge various delays in our acceptance. In listening to it we do become our own worst enemies”
