If you’re dreaming of financial freedom, you may want to start thinking like a financially free person.
Do you believe you are worthy of a salary increase? Are you finding that the more money you make, the more money you spend? Does the thought of spending money on things you can actually afford make you anxious?
Your money mindset is the set of beliefs and attitudes you hold towards money, and the wealthiest people understand that it’s a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to increasing your net worth.
So, if you’re not surrounded by millionaires to take cues from, picking up a book on a money mindset to reflect on your money stories and habits is the next best thing.
From Napoleon Hill’s timeless wisdom in Think and Grow Rich to Jen Sincero’s easy-to-digest advice in You Are a Badass at Making Money, these reads will help you unlock new insights and tap into your own ability to create financial abundance in your life.
1. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
Even though it was published in 1937, Think and Grow Rich is still a favorite of many highly successful entrepreneurs.
In fact, it was endorsed by three Sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank. Daymond John, founder of FUBU, reads it every couple of years. Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran said the principles in the book played a huge role in her success. And tech industry tycoon Robert Herjavec called it epic.
In the best-selling book he described as a roadmap to riches, Hill outlines the success principles he uncovered after interviewing dozens of self-made millionaires.
From writing down your goals daily to practising visualisation, adopt a few concepts from Think and Grow Rich and watch your net worth grow.

2. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth by T. Harv Eker
“Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!” writes author, speaker and entrepreneur T. Harv Eker in his money mindset playbook.
Eker used the principles he teaches to turn a $2,000 loan into a seven-figure fitness business in only two and a half years.
The nuggets of wisdom in Secrets of the Millionaire Mind come from the comparisons Eker makes between rich and poor people and their beliefs and attitudes towards things like life obstacles, failure, growth and learning, financial literacy and more.
Use this book as an eye-opening exercise to find out where you’ve been getting in your own way so you can flip the script.
