I first discovered the concept of “money mindset” a few years ago, and it completely blew my mind. In short, your money mindset is your beliefs and feelings about money, which all directly affect your financial reality.
We all have our own money beliefs that were ingrained in us when we were children or from past experiences. Beliefs like “making money is hard” and “rich people are greedy” are some that are all too common. And although consciously as adults we know these things aren’t true, subconsciously they’re still lodged in our minds and continue sabotaging our success.
The good news is we all have the power to completely transform our money mindset. Yes, it takes time and a whole lot of effort, but it’s more than worth it. The key is to constantly feed our minds with content that helps us uncover those limiting money beliefs that are holding us back and teaches us how to think about money in a completely new way. Here, I’m sharing five of of my favorite money mindset books that have completely changed the game for me — and I know they’ll do the same for you.
I’ve read a ton of personal development and money mindset books, and Jen Sincero’s You Are A Badass At Making Money is one of my favorites all around. Her punchy writing style will make you feel like a total badass that can make as much money as her heart desires — hence the name. It’s filled with practical tips, exercises, and money mantras. Don’t skip over anything. The magic of money mindset is really in doing the inner work.
I seriously can’t recommend Nancy Levin’s Worthy enough. While most money mindset books touch on the surface level beliefs around money, this one digs way deeper and really gets to the heart of the issue: our self-worth. In order to increase our net worth, we must deeply know and believe we are worthy of the life and the wealth we really want, and that’s what this book is all about. It’s filled with writing exercises that will help you uncover limiting beliefs that you probably didn’t even know were there. Get ready for some really big shifts while reading this one.
If you don’t already know who Marianne Williamson is, please look her up. She is like the Beyonce of spirituality. The Law of Divine Compensation is one of my favorite books of hers. It takes a super spiritual approach to money. So if woo-woo things aren’t your cup of tea, then this might not be the book for you. But if you are, read it ASAP. It’ll help you connect to why your work matters in the world and why you deserve to be well compensated for it. You can thank me later.
Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is a classic that everyone should read. It was originally published in 1937 so the language is not as fresh and fun as other books, but the content is still 100% relevant today. The book delves into the secrets behind the wealth of some of the richest people in history, including Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and Thomas Edison. The principles are simple but powerful — cultivate a burning desire for what you want, back it with unwavering faith, and take persistent action to make it happen.
If you’re really into manifestation and you’ve read The Secret from cover to cover, then I highly recommend taking your money manifesting game to the next level with the help of Creating Money by Sanaya Roman & Duane Packer. The book dives into the spiritual laws of manifesting money and abundance and teaches advanced manifesting techniques. You’ll learn how to discover your life’s work, how to transform your limiting beliefs about money, and how to become an energetic match for more money.
