Book Recommendation for a Stellar New Year 2024

This book is really good for those of you who are the type of humans that want to change your life around year over year but despite your intentions you fail to follow through with what your set goals are. So how is this going to help you? This is a book that’s been used for years and years and years and years since 1937 by some notable human beings who have achieved certain levels of status, certain levels of prestige, certain levels of wealth. I will never talk about wealth as something as cheap as money associated with it. I don’t think the richer you are the wealthier you are. 

 

The richer you are in mind, body, spirit, soul, the healthier you are, the more you’re engaged in your passions, in your relationships, with people who matter, not people who don’t. Then you are a wealthy human being. 

 

So the reason I like to do this right now is because I know that many of our society as a whole, they’re going to go through the holidays like, “Well I can’t change my life in the holidays because it’s the holiday season and it’s too hard so I’m going to wait till January 1st to do so.” That’s cool, I don’t care, I don’t judge you, I don’t care if you wait till whenever you want to wait, but if you want January 1st in 2024 to work out the way you want it to work out, I’m telling you that it won’t happen just by making a resolution. 

 

I’m not going to bore you with a long list of statistics that will prove indisputably that New Year’s resolutions don’t work. I’ll just give you one little statistic – 90% of New Year’s resolutions are blown up after the second week. Two weeks – that’s all it takes to break the human will of something that they want to do. So this is a book that I am very passionate about. 

 

Think and Grow Rich

So there is a book that was written in 1937. That book is called Think and Grow Rich. The whole premise of the book is that whatever the mind of a man can conceive and believe then it can achieve. It sold over 120 million copies so if you don’t want to take my word for it take the other 119,999,999 people who bought this book. It is the fifth or sixth all time selling book when it comes to personal development. In that book, the author studied 500 people that were ultra rich and he found out what all these people have in common that they’re able to accomplish and achieve what they have accomplished and achieved in their life. 

 

Some notable people included in the book:

  • Andrew Carnegie: I don’t care what you think of him as a businessman, what he did, what he didn’t do, if he screwed people over or if he didn’t. It was in the year 1901 and the guy was worth $480 million that is equivalent to $320 billion today, so that is equivalent to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and all those guys. 
  • Henry Ford
  • The Wrigleys
  • Thomas Edison
  • Teddy Roosevelt
  • Charles Schwab – who has a bank named after him, and an investment company named after him. 
  • John D Rockefeller

 

The Seeds to Succeed in 2024

So in this book they talk about something called the six steps to riches. Now I believe that most people – when I say most people I’m talking about most people – only do the first step of this thing and that’s why they don’t achieve it. Riches could mean money, it could mean a career, it could mean a loving, safe, healthy, healing relationship, it could mean physical health, it could mean emotional health, it could mean a combination of all of them. It will help you to be able to set yourself up for success in 2024 and not be a statistic of all those people who say, 

 

“This year I’m going to cut out sweets for the whole year.” 

No you’re not. 

 

“This year I’m going to lose 100 pounds,” and you just say it like that. 

No you’re not. 

 

“This year I’m gonna make $36,000 more.” 

No you’re not. 

 

But I believe that this year you can change your dietary habits, 

I believe that this year you can change and lose however much weight you want, 

I believe this year you can increase your salary or your income by x amount, 

I believe this year you can obtain and maintain your sobriety. 

 

For all of those who keep relapsing you can do it if you apply this. I wouldn’t be sitting here telling you this if I didn’t believe in this. But I don’t want to wait another day to share this with you. I don’t want to wait another day to plant this seed in your mind to help you succeed in 2024.
