The practical way to riches, part 1

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, Personal Finance

The Practical Way to riches

If you want to become rich you need to develop certain habits. Being rich is a state of mind and a collection of habits. Money is used to keep count. I have been looking into this area the last few years and I have noticed certain patterns that emerge.

One of the biggest ideas and misconceptions about becoming rich is that rich people are born rich. This is wrong. There are countless examples that prove the opposite, but people think that these are the exceptions. What you must realise is that these people have some habits in common. These habits are not specific to a region/race/sex/age/year. They can be universally applied. In the next series of posts I will discuss these habits in detail.

Habit 1 – Invest your money

Rich people make their money work for them. They do not work for their money.[…]

“Why We Want You to Be Rich” by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Books, Habits, Personal Finance

Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump

This is a very interesting book that is written by two great authors. The book is packed with good material about the things you need to focus to get rich. It spends some time in the beginning to tell you why you need to get rich and why depending on a job and the government to look after you is not a wise decision.

I found that Robert is repeating his mantras here, a lot. If you have read some of his other books I do not think you will read anything new here. Maybe some bits here and there, but nothing amazing. Donald is a bit more original than his usual books. His parts in the book are smaller that Robert’s, but I found they contain much more practical steps on how to think big and negotiate. […]

How to profit in tough times

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Guest Speakers, Personal Finance, Spread Betting

I have asked a friend of mine to write a guest post for this blog. My friend is a person who is very keen on action and I asked her to share her thought on these tough times that the economy is going through. Here is the practical way she is dealing with the downturn:


TOUGH TIMES AHEAD!!! Well at least that’s what all the tabloids have been screaming for some time now. Will it change? How long will it last? Who’s to blame? Who knows!!! BUT the famous saying of what goes up must come down, can be positively correlated with ‘where there’s a winner there’s always a loser’ and vice versa. So in dark down-turning times such as these, who is silently sitting in the corner smirking as they watch the markets take a dive? […]

“Breakthrough to success” NLP seminar with Chris Howard

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Habits, NLP, Personal Finance, Presentations, Seminars

Breakthrough to success with Chris Howard

In June, I went to the Breakthrough to Success seminar by Christopher Howard. It was such an awesome event. Chris rocks. He has studied NLP and hypnosis for years and it shows every minute he is on stage. I have studied NLP as well, but I have never seen anyone put it to practice so well. Every move and every word he says are calculated and full of meaning.

In the seminar he covers the areas of wealth, personal growth, career, relationships and family. The best thing is that he shows you the skills to use to achieve what you want in the areas and you practice them with him. So, you gain a lot of insight on the practical application of these tools.
