If material possessions does not equate to a rich life, then we need a different compass to guide us - one based not on material riches but inner peace and serenity. We need to redefine what rich means and then have a method for each of us to actively pursue a rich life. Today We Are Rich does just that. The purpose of this book is not to teach you how to accumulate material wealth but to show you that you are already rich in a number of ways. But to appreciate that, you will need to change the way you look at life.
Tim Sanders, the author, uses his own personal life's story as a guide for each of us. Tim was raised by his grandmother who taught him the guiding principles for living a purposeful life. Tim did not automatically learn and abide by these. He had to go out an experience life for himself and make some mistakes before he fully embraced the wisdom in what she taught. But eventually he came to realize that her teachings were the principles he needed to use to shape his life.
He sets the groundwork by talking about his sideways years. Lessons without context are not very valuable. So before he talks about the lessons, he talks about how his life was adrift, lacking direction. Once you have a good understanding of how his life developed, the lessons are much more meaningful.
This is a very personal look at Tim's life and learning. The lessons are very profound. The book does not focus on attaining material wealth. At the end of your life, you are going to judge your life not by how much you accumulate but by how much you have contributed to others, how much value you have given back.
This book is very good at getting you to reflect on what is important in life. I think anyone will gain a better perspective about life from reading this book. You will come to appreciate life more. Well worth reading.
Tim talks about a topic that is critically important to our success and well being - confidence - and then shares specific principles to help us build it:
* Feed Your Mind Good Stuff
* Move the Conversation Forward
* Exercise Your Gratitude Muscle
* Give to Be Rich
* Prepare Yourself
* Balance Your Confidence
* Promise Made, Promise Kept
All of this is solid advice - and while not "new" it is worth re-learning and applying, and Tim delivers it with great care for the reader, sprinkling in references to classic self help literature with his own stories and examples.
Those classics that are mentioned, recommended and quoted are a list of books often read and kept proudly on my shelf, including works from Claude Bristol, Norman Vincent Peale, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, James Allen, David Schwartz and Napoleon Hill. If you are unfamiliar with any of these authors, buy this book immediately, but you have more to add to your library, too). While I have read all of the books cited and explored, Tim brought a freshness and vibrancy, while casting all of their advice around his principles of confidence and abundance.
Lastly I love this book because of the opening chapter about his Grandmother Billye. While that story and her lessons are woven throughout the book, that opening chapter alone is worth your investment in the book.
Do yourself a favor and buy a copy of Today We Are Rich, today!
This book reads a lot like Tim's autobiography, as he tells so many personal stories about his childhood and early adulthood. But then Tim steps out of his personal memoirs to give us some great insights from what he has learned. The amazing thing to me was how he could make his story seem so applicable to story seem so applicable to my story.
I found this book very readable and instantly applicable. It's a book you can read rather quickly, but you will be applying and working on the principles for years to come.
Honest: Tim writes honestly about 7 principles (The Principles of Total Confidence) that have enabled him to anchor his life in unshakeable confidence. Sanders explains that he is talking about a process that will require discipline and hard work. "Positive thinking is an outcome, not a prescribed behavior. It requires much effort and discipline. It's a lifestyle decision."
Practical: Tim tells you how he has put The Principles of Total Confidence (TPTC) to work in his life then suggests ways for you to do the same. No hard and fast rules; just try this, do that, see what works for you.
Provocative: Tim wrote TWAR using what he has dubbed "friend sourcing"; using social media to mine information from his friends about how they have applied TPTC in their own lives. He created a real-time, on-going conversation from the inception of the book, to availability, right on through to taking us on his book tour with him. Too much fun! Tim's message is consistent - create good change in you and in your world.
"Today We Are Rich" is the best business book I've read so far this year. The principles Tim talks about and encourages us to build into our lives are essential to creating and sustaining a positive life style. Without the kind of solid foundation Sanders espouses everything else just falls apart.
