"Even though we live in the most affluent country in the world, where most people earn and spend a fortune in the course of their working lifetimes, why is it that the majority end up dependent on Social Security, pensions and relatives when they retire?" asks Brian Tracy in his book, Getting Rich Your Own Way: Achieve All Your Financial Goals Faster Than You Ever Thought Possible. While there may not be any simple answer to this, or the other questions he poses, Tracy offers just the information you need to help you change your financial status.
Tracy suggests anyone earning a paycheck can avoid being included in the dependent majority and argues that one of the reasons people fail to get rich is “it never occurs to them that it is possible for them." In each chapter, Tracy presents simple things you can change in your life to establish a better financial picture. He covers topics such as, how to "Become a Money Magnet" and "Learn from the Best." Furthermore, he encourages you to, "make a list of the best 25 people, locally or nationally, you feel it would be most useful for you to get to know. [And], develop a strategy to meet each one of them over the next 12 months." To help inspire you to achieve your financial goals and objectives he gives personal accounts from success stories.
