The Richest Man In Babylon

My original introduction to this classic was from the late Jim Rohn in 1998. Jim believed that anyone building a personal library should certainly include this masterpiece. In 1998, I was in the early stages of building my career and learned a great deal from the parables in this book. I was recently re-introduced to this book when Deana Nall, writer for Success Magazine, interviewed me regarding this books impact on my career. Deana was writing a story about the author George Clason and just why this book is considered a classic. Clason used parables to teach financial principles. The parables evoke almost a biblical feel illustrating powerful principles in building wealth, but delivered in an easy understandable way. The ease of delivery, in my opinion,  is what should put this on the required reading list for all of us once a year.  I would like to share a few of the nuggets of wisdom contained in The Richest Man In Babylon.

The Five Laws Of Gold


1) Gold cometh gladlyand in increasing quantity to any man who will put by not less than one-tenth of his earnings to create an estate for his future and that of his family.


2) Gold laboreth diligently and contentedly for the wise owner who finds for it profitable employment, multiplying even as the flocks of the field.


3) Gold clingeth to the protection of the cautious owner who invests it under the advice of men wise in its handling.


4) Gold slippeth away from the man who invests it in businesses or purposes with which he is not familiar or which are not approved by those skilled in its keep.


5) Gold flees the man who would force it to impossible earnings or who followeth the alluring advice of tricksters and schemers or who trusts it to his own inexperience and romantic desires in investment.
