Financial freedom! Two words that guarantee to grab your attention. One thing is for sure, you want to build and maintain financial wealth that lasts. Asha Tyson, in her book “How I Retired at 26!”, gives you practical steps to gaining the power to make your life whatever you desire. She teaches you how to “live life pursuing your passion rather than your pension”, thereby living a life of adventure, meaning and joy.
In the first three chapters, you will get to learn about the author’s personal experiences of neglect, abuse and homelessness by the time she was 17, how she came to the realisation that she needed to redirect her life, and how she retired at 26.
Asha guarantees a long-term solution to true financial wealth and personal gratification, rather than a get-rich-quick scheme. She promises to teach the reader how the change habits that hinder success, and in the process gain material wealth, become fearless, have healthier relationships, and live at their spiritual, emotional and physical best.
Note that the book does not provide tricks or tips on how to handle your money, such as learning to save or how to invest. It rather expounds on personal growth and development. It reflects on the fact that financial freedom and wealth are not just about making smart investments and honestly saving money; it is also about calming the storm within yourself.
So if you are looking for something that will give you access to instant wealth, then this book is definitely not for you. However, if you want to master the art of truly becoming a better you and in the process gain a long-term financial freedom, then this book is a must-read.
“By dumping emotional dead weight, unlearning self-defeating beliefs, and discovering your passion, you will position yourself for a life beyond what you may have never imagined. You CAN live an extraordinary life right now and always!” – Asha Tyson
