Hello, everyone! I am back with a quick update on what I’ve been reading lately. This post is obviously “a bit” overdue, considering we’re in the middle of February. However, I wanted to share this first before letting you all know what I’ve been reading this month.
Without further ado, here’s what I read in January (in order):
Author: Joel Osteen
This book is a quick read and very inspirational. I read it probably within a week or two and mostly during my morning ritual. As the title indicates, the book teaches us how to have an abundance mindset in all aspects of our lives. There is no point in thinking small. As a child of God, we are meant for big things. If you’re looking for a boost of motivation, I believe you’ll enjoy this book.
Author: Burton G. Malkiel
WOW! This book is intense – right from the beginning. I honestly loved it as soon as I started reading. While I might not agree with every single thing Mr. Malkiel states about the stock market, I agreed with most of it.
Like me, he firmly believes that the average person can learn how to manage and invest their own money. However, he also talks about the dangers of treating the stock market like a casino.
The first part of the book focuses a lot on history. People gambling the stock market and making decisions to buy a stock or investment based on FOMO (fear of missing out) is something that has been around for a VERY long time. The author goes deep and shares many examples of this throughout history.
The second part of the book focuses more on strategy and wisdom on approaching the stock market to grow wealth over time.
Personally, I read the second part first. I still have some sections to complete in the first part. It is a very thick book. However, I’ve enjoyed it!
And that’s all for now 🙂
