How is The Values Factor my third book. As I am writing this I am really excited to be ahead of my reading, but who knows what will happen this year.
Compared to the last two books, this one I am not recommending you READ TODAY! This one can go on your list for a one day read when you fancy it.
There were some great nuggets of information in there. Especially when looking at finances and how you spend money. But it isn’t up there with the last two books.
I know know that financial freedom to me has always been about being able to spend and buy anything I want. Instead of being about saving and investments. Something I now need to change.
But the book itself was a little hard to read, and I have to admit that I have had this book for years, only getting past the first couple of chapters. Picking it up for this challenge reminded me why.
Much of the book is repeated throughout. There were a couple of phrases that I almost counted throughout the book. Which made it hard reading. Having a knowledge of beliefs, self-sabotages etc, made me struggle a little with some of the things mentioned. For example if we are not doing it then it can’t be our highest value. Where as in my experience things can be hard to do from a belief we have deep within ourselves.
Am I pleased I read it? Yes 100% I still got things out of it. Would I have chosen a different book as one of the 52 – in a way yes, as I feel it took longer than it should have and I could have learnt more in a quicker time.
I am really pleased it is now ticked off my list and maybe in a few weeks I will notice a way in which it has changed my life. But I think the book could have been half the size and more direct with the knowledge.
