From the Inside Flap

The United States is the land of opportunity; and that’s as true today as it’s ever been. Even in tough times like these, getting rich doesn’t have to be a dream–you can make it a reality with hard work and practical advice. In Getting Rich Your Own Way, renowned business consultant and motivational speaker Brian Tracy offers a proven road map to financial success for anyone and everyone.

In this positive, prescriptive guide, Tracy shares proven principles and strategies that lead to success–the same principles and strategies that thousands of Americans learn in his seminars every year. Concise and comprehensive, this book won’t teach you how to make a fast buck in real estate or beat the stock market for a million dollars. Instead, it will teach you real-world principles for achieving the financial independence you dream of–no matter what you do for a living or how little you have in the bank.

Inside you’ll find real stories of successful people who started out with nothing and ended up living their financial dreams. You’ll find a wealth of creative ideas for making money, as well as priceless principles that will help you succeed at any endeavor. You’ll learn how to accumulate and protect your wealth over the long-term, how to market and sell anything under the sun, and even how to start your own business if you’re an entrepreneur at heart. But most important, you’ll learn how to develop the winning attitude and work habits that unite all successful people in every field or profession.

What most people don’t know is that making money is a skill you can learn. That’s right. By paying attention to what successful people do–or don’t do–and carefully following their example, you’ll get the same results they do. After all, wealth is really all about cause and effect. If you put the right moneymaking causes in place, the wealth effect will follow. It may take patience and it will certainly take effort, but with the right attitude and the simple, helpful guidance you’ll find here, you’ll know that nothing is beyond your abilities–and nothing feels better than Getting Rich Your Own Way.

Format: Paperback
Getting Rich Your Own Way by Brian Tracy is a solid text on succeeding in your financial matters. With the advice Tracy gives in this book, the reader can create a road map to financial success. With some hard work and sweat, the reader can achieve success from that road map.

Over the years, I've enjoyed many of Tracy's books and audio programs. I've also enjoyed seeing him speak on dvds a time or two as well. I found this book especially insightful into what it takes to achieve fortunes, or as the title says, get rich.

Do not misstate this book for some get rich quick scheme. In fact, Tracy states that it may take patience and it will certainly take effort. But if you have the right attitude and are willing to do what it takes, Tracy's advice and guidance in this book will help you along your way to riches beyond what you currently have obtained.

The book starts with a very motivating introduction where Tracy covers topics such as the difference between success and failure, starting with nothing, how you can do it, the differences between rich and poor and the encouragement that you can learn what you need to learn.

The book then has ten chapters that cover the following topics:

1. Learn How to Become Rich: Why people don't become rich, five ways to stay poor, five ways to become rich, definition of wealth, find a need and fill it, big fortunes and small ideas, one idea is all you need, maximize your assets, and become a no-limit person.

Format: Hardcover
Brian Tracey is an incredible man who started off with nothing. Several of his tapes and books are very helpful and specific. In this book many of the topics, tips, and advice given in "Getting Rich Your Own Way" are known already by those who dabble into this genre of books from time to time. But this piece by Brian Tracey does shed light on proven points, and it's a good motivational book to remind us that we're in control of our lives and should be proactive. These concepts are worth remembering and implementing. This book is helpful, informative, and encouraging. Again however, for this field of books, there isn't a lot of new information for those who've read this stuff previously. And, like many American books covering investing, financial independence, and success topics, the word "rich" is often in the title. Also note the terms "easy" and "fast" in the titles of these books. Just look at the top 100 bestsellers.

Here is one example of the numerous pieces of advice: when buying raw land consider the transportation possibilities in the future. Expanding suburbs and edge cities, highway arteries, school districts, etc.) This is common sense and can be found on the internet doing a search in 4.9 seconds.

on the up-side one topic I like is Tracy's coverage of "time perception." Studies show that there is a difference of time perception (looking ahead) among different socio-economic and professional groups. Some groups of people tend to have time horizons of about two weeks. Planning for the future is more difficult for these groups and they usually end up in difficult and/or dire circumstances as a consequence of a myopic mentality.

"Getting Rich your own Way" at times focuses on the forest, not the trees.

Format: Hardcover
If you go around humming, "If I were a rich man" from "Fiddler on the Roof", it might be time to stop fiddling and go around reading instead. If wealth is your goal, man or woman, help yourself to a serving of some vintage Brian Tracy advice. He offers a tasty stew of maxims, aphorisms, anecdotes and general words of wisdom that will motivate you to become better at what you do, in order to become richer. Tracy is a walking oracle of motivation. If your desire to be wealthy seems like a pipe dream, wake up to the blend of information he has assembled. As the master of self-help books, Tracy offers practical advice, encouragement, motivation and effective techniques for self-improvement. In this book, he tells you how to help yourself to money. That's as good an invitation as we've seen anywhere. Now let's see if it works. In high hopes, we recommend Tracy's application of upbeat philosophy to the goal of accumulating wealth.

Format: Hardcover
This book is very well written and someone with a highschool education can use the money saving concepts in their current job, to secure their future tomorrow. It's all about taking you back to the basics of retirement planning! If you think about how your parents worked, saved, retired, this book gives you the "inspiration" that you can create a nest egg in todays world, and you can retire equal or better than you lived.

Brain talks about success stories and examples of how people achieved financial security while only holding mid to low paying jobs. If you make a middle to low income, it will show you how pennys today can secure your future tomorrow!

Never think that you are below others based on your occupation. You can read how a janitor or disabled person and retire without worry when they come of age.

I hope you enjoy it, I found it inspiring!
