3 Books That Changed My Life Instantly

…Mey here on a Thursday morning, winter is coming, it is dark and cooler outside, grateful for my son and husband and my mom and our beautiful home here in Honolulu HI, blogging about 3 Books That Changed My Life Instantly

…ever read a book and then INSTANTLY, your life changed for the better?

…you had an AH HAH moment and then BOOM, instantly you were a better person?

…sometimes a book can change you slowly, sometimes it has an impact years later, however, these 3 books changed my life the second I read the life changing words that were found in them

…the first helped me lose 3 pounds easily in 2 weeks without any change to how much I exercise…

…the second gave me more money in my bank account every month…

…and the third helped me live in every moment, and appreciate how extraordinary life really is…

The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

…the first book is The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business by Charles Duhigg…

…I actually am still listening to the audiobook, and it is a very powerful book, written in a way that you want to hear what is going to happen next…

…so, here’s my story…

…while listening to the book as he’s summarizing the kinds of habits people might want to change…

…he mentioned a “snacking habit” and INSTANTLY I realized I had a snacking habit…

…and I decided as the sentence rolled through my ears and into my brain that I would stop snacking…

…I realized that I was just eating chocolate in my office out of habit…

…if it was there, I would grab a piece…

…and that ended up being about 5 pieces a day if there was a good supply under my desk or in the copy room…

…and I wasn’t even hungry…

…sure enough, right then I stopped snacking…

…that was about 2 weeks ago…

…I would go into the copy room and even motion towards the chocolate, then I would ask myself, are you hungry?

…and my response was, NO…

…so then I didn’t eat the snack…

…you know what?

…I’ve lost 3 pounds already and have not been doing anything else different…

…that one sentence brought to my attention that I had this automatic behavior that I wanted to change…

…and I changed it on the spot…

Money is My Friend for the New Millennium: 2nd Edition

…ever start making more money instantly?

…I did after reading Money is My Friend for the New Millennium: 2nd Edition by Phil Laut…

…in it he had a section that discussed why we need to spend the earnings from our Financial Freedom Account (the money that we are saving to become financially free/retire)…

…prior to reading this, I had my dividends being automatically re-invested back into the REIT (stock)…

…I immediately turned off the re-investment, and ever since then, I’ve been paying myself my earnings, and boy does making money feel a lot more fun now!

…instantly, I had a bigger paycheck every month because I was also paying myself!

Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives

…reading Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives by Dan Millman is like reading a novel…

…there was even a movie make about the book…

…it’s entertaining and fun to read…

…a real page turner…

…it was recommended to me by Aaron Rashkin, who spoke to us on stage at an event for our business and said that the book changed his life…

…so I went and read it…

…and WOW, did it change my life…

…there was this one part in the book where the character is told my his mentor to sit all day on a rock and come up with an important and extraordinary idea…

…and he sits there, coming up with ideas and getting sent back, until he has been out there literally all day…

…what does he come up with?

…there are no extraordinary moments…

…so how did that impact me?

…I realized that I had been living with ALIVE TIME and DEAD TIME…

…alive time is like now, when I’m blogging, or when I’m parasailing or surfing…

…dead time was when I was walking up and down the stairs at my bank to process something…

…and I realized that there is no dead time…

…that all of my time is extraordinary…

…and so when I walk up and down the stairs at my bank, sometimes now I will think, what is extraordinary about this moment?

…what is special about RIGHT NOW?

Conclusion

…hope you enjoyed reading about these 3 great books that really impacted my life for the better…

…it’s so true that reading and learning new knowledge on a daily basis will transform your life for the better…

…it’s funny how a lot of people don’t do it…

…I’m going to tell you a secret, I’m in a community where we encourage each other to read everyday…

…and we give each other more books to learn from, and we teach each other what we’ve learned…

…and we do this because we want to empower other people…

Money Is My Friend – Passive Income Key I Learned From Phil Laut

Mey here on a lovely Thursday, blogging about Money Is My FriendPassive Income Key I Learned From Phil Laut...

…inspired by the book Money Is My Friend by Phil Laut…

…this book was recommended to me by one of my financially free friends Scott…

…I really enjoyed it and had a life changing moment occur when I read the part on passive income…

…when I read the book I was already making dividends with some of my stocks, and was reinvesting them using DRIP…

…and then I read in the book that if you want to be free you have to live off of your passive income…

…that means that you PAY YOURSELF YOUR PASSIVE INCOME every month…

…he had a story in the book where he had a savings account, and it made about $2.00 the first month…

…and he took the money and bought a movie ticket with it and enjoyed a movie…

…the point?

…we need to take our passive income and use it as we earn it, and it doesn’t matter how small it might be…

…this allows our passive income stream to grow and eventually replace our working income…

…if we never take out the dividends and live off of them we will never be free…

…it prevents us from falling into the trap of just saving and saving and working and working our whole lives and keeps us on track for our real goal, which is to make our own money with our own money…

…so right then I started paying myself 90% of my dividends (for all my income, including my passive income, I always pay myself 10% first and put it into my financial freedom account)…

…it’s amazing how just reading that one section in the book changed my life…

…suddenly making passive income streams became A LOT MORE FUN!!!

…and as I’m writing this I’m realizing that I have money in my savings account that is earning interest and I have to pay myself 90% of my interest…

…SCORE!

…so I encourage you to start this key passive income habit, which is start paying yourself your passive income every month…

…you’re going to get a lot more motivated to find ways to earn more and and you’re going to enjoy your money so much more!

What about you?

Do you make passive income in the form of interest, dividends, royalties, etc?

Do you pay yourself your passive income?
