The pitfalls of self-pity, greed, overspending, false comparisons, materialism and isolation are readily defined in each enlightening chapter. In "Using Money to Measure Happiness", the author illustrates examples of how it's the moment, not the money that gives you the most value and shifting from a 'have to' mindset to a 'want to' one, is beneficial to your inner peace as well as your pocketbook.
In "Overspending" you get practical advice against this bad habit, with a balanced approach of planning, solution exploring and concentrating on the things that give you joy, versus accumulating debt buying what you don't even remember you have.
Excellent cautionary tales are found in "Complaining" and "Comparing Yourself to Others", where a negative lookout can turn into a soul (and money) sucking venture. The moral of this wonderful tome? Find your bliss and money will no longer be the elephant sitting on your back, but a friend you can count on.
Loved this book, it's highly recommended, if you, like me want to get your financial life -- and life in general -- back on track.
When I came across Alicia's book, I was quickly anxious to read it because the title called out to me. After reading it from cover to cover, I was more than pleased. I learnt so much life tips that could last me a lifetime. This book is a very resourceful guide, you would find yourself referring to it every now and then!
Alicia Castillo Holley, the author, has an admirable background in venture capital creation as well as other corporate-level skills and her background and wisdom shows all through this excellent book. Much of what she says seems obvious once you've read it. Why we are so hard-headed (at least I am, and my wife agrees!) and don't get these things on our own is a mystery. Especially in today's economy nothing is more important for you than to break your unWealthy habits and this is the blueprint on how to do so.
