Top 15 Must Read Books For Success And Financial Freedom


15 booksDid you know that there are books that you can read for success and financial freedom?

When I first got started on my journey of entreprenuership, I had no idea about reading books to help me learn about personal development which leads to success and financial freedom.

I have always loved to read but I read romance novels by Danielle Steele and horror books by Steven King it was merely for my own personal enjoyment.

Heck I started off reading the Archie comic books (I may be telling my age…lol) but I have always been an avid reader and I could just engross myself in a good book for hours at a time, sometimes even finishing it in a day or two, never even thinking about success and financial freedom.

Who would have thought it? Right!

Now that I have learned that leaders are readers  and just by reading and learning new things my life has changed and my financial picture has changed all because of these 15 books listed in random order.

1. Think And Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill

This is one of my favorite books and anyone this thinking about becoming rich and how to do it exactly must read this book.
Think and Grow Rich has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Books. Published in 1937, Hill was commissioned by of Andrew Carnegie to do a study of 500 millionaires including, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation and to write about how they achieved their wealth.


2. Ask And It Is Given – Esther & Jerry Hicks

When I first started to read this book I was blown away.  It is so true that “You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know” and that was the case when I read this book.

This book shares teachings of the nonphysical entity Abraham that is channeled through Esther Hicks. Learning how to manifest anything that you want in your life using the Universal Laws is so very powerful.  You will be so engrossed in this book and just following one of the principles shared in this book will change your life.


3. The Slight Edge – Jeff Olson

This has to be my most favorite book of all time and once you read it you will see why. Have you ever wondered why some people are so successful and other people seem to struggle?

Answer: (hint) the title of the book is the clue – they have found the SLIGHT EDGE!

People have a tendency  to only do the minimum in their life and in their business, but what if you had that slight edge what if you could create the desired results in your life doing just a little bit more?

This book will totally change the way you view your life and your business and once you realize the secret your life will never be the same.



4. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind – Joseph Murphy

Wow, I have to say that this is one book that will give you so many ah-ha moments and you will never view your subconscious mind and the power of it the same again.

The subconscious mind is so powerful that you will not or cannot believe it.  This is not a book to read one time you must read it over and over again, study it, absorb it and apply all of the things outlined in the book.

The mystery of the mind will unfold right in front your eyes as you read this book.  I keep this book on my nightstand and you will too.


5. The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho

This book has taken the world by storm, this is a magical, mystical story about a young boy/man Santiago, a shepherd boy who is in search of a treasure.

The twists and turns of the story shares age old wisdoms, omens and or signs that are all around us if we just take the time to see them.

There are so many times that we know things in our heart and soul that we just don’t listen to and don’t go after our dreams but this story shows you how this one boy does that and teaches you how you can too.

I bet you did not know that there are spiritual laws to success and if you did kudos to you, because I did not know.

7. The Blessing of Favor – Kate McVeigh

I always tell people that “I am blessed and highly favored!”  Reading thing this book just reiterates what I have been saying and believing all of my life.

This book shares with you that it does not matter your color, your race, your background God’s blessing of favor is flowing in everyone’s life it is just a matter of you believing it and then receiving it.

I love the way that the author uses her personal experiences and the bible to share with the reader how you are blessed with favor.

This book will touch your heart and your soul and help you dig deep within and realize you are truly blessed.

It has been hidden for centuries, people who did not want others to know the “Secret”

But is it really a secret? You have untapped power inside of you that encompasses every area of your life, your health, your wealth, your relationships,  and your happiness.

This knowledge was kept a secret for so long that when it came out people were shocked that they could apply it and acquire massive wealth, overcome obstacles, and have the life they truly desire.
