Learning more and more about ways to enhance my personal finances is exactly what led me to reading this book, Money Master the Game by Tony Robbins. In case you don't know, Tony Robbins (TR) is best known as a motivational speaker and author. To me personally, he's opened my eyes wide to learning how to grow my money through investing. We've all been told to save our money. Some of us have actually been blessed in being shown actually how to do that. In this book, Tony breaks every aspects of investing down and of course some gems on personal growth overall. There was no surprise when I came across this book that Ian Dunlap posted on Instagram and have mentioned so many times on Market Monday's hosted by Earn Your Leisure.
Now per the usual in my book reviews, I'm not going to dive into exactly what the book talks about in it's entirety because of course, I want you to purchase the book. I'm merely bringing awareness about this book. Disclaimer: I may or may not gain a commission if you decide to purchase this book through Amazon. It's a book that I will always keep and refer back to as needed.
“The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.” - Anonymous
Before you even start investing or learning about investing, you must do what's in the best interest for YOU and know your risk tolerance. I am NOT a fiduciary so I am NOT here to advise you on any financial investing. I am here to point out some key factors that TR mentioned in his book. From this moment forward, make the commitment daily to better yourself, especially when it comes to your personal finances. You can't go back to yesterday and fix anything. However, you can go about your day today, and do better and change the trajectory of how you will began to build wealth for yourself and those that you love.
“To get results, you can’t just ask the question once, you have to become obsessed with finding its greatest answer(s).” - Tony Robbins
When learning how to master your money or anything else, you can't only ask one question and think that answer is it or final. You must continuously learn about the answer and the answers that will follow those questions. After I learned the answers to the questions I had about investing, I immediately began to watch the stock market daily, follow experts who provide valuable content about the stock market, watched Youtube videos, etc. To date, I'm still learning about different ways to enhance my investments. That is how you get results! You never stop learning even if you think that you know it all........chances are, you don't!
”Always remember that income is the outcome.” - Tony Robbins
This quote in the book jumped out of the pages and into my spirit because it reminds me of my mantra/focal point when I'm trying to figure something out. I ask myself, "What's the bottomline?" In this case, whatever I'm investing in, the bottomline for me is remembering that "income is the outcome." I recently posted about how I manifested my new job here. I knew going in that I would be trading my time for money, again. So knowing this, my ROI (return of investment) from working a 9-5 again had to be that I use my salary to invest more than I used it to only pay bills and pay for my lifestyle. If that went over your head, let's talk about it in the comments.
I love how in this book TR interviewed some of our world's top financial guru's and wealthiest people alive. I'm an advocate of learning exactly what the rich people do to stay wealthy. We know enough about broke people....AMEN?!?! This doesn't mean that I go and copy every investment strategy that rich/wealthy people mention or advise. It means that I pay attention to what they are paying attention to in the stock market and I make sound choices for myself. The end goal for me is enjoying my retirement years and building wealth for my family for generations to come.
Finally, before you jump into the stock market, learn about it first to avoid many mistakes. Know what your risk tolerances are and invest accordingly. Talk to financial advisors when needed. Take a course or several as you go along. But whatever you decide to do, just get started mastering the money game!!!!!!!
