What's cool about audiobooks besides the fact that you can multitask is that you can play it over and over again, they don't take up any space, so you won't have to worry about clutter. I really am addicted. You know when you're working, you just need some ambiance or noise to get in the zone. Well, this is so much more productive than listening to Pandora or having some junk reality tv playing in the background.
I should mention that I only got the Audible membership after downloading all the books I wanted from my public library, not much of a selection. That's an issue.
Ok, so back to Super Rich. It was narrated by Black Ice and I think he is an amazing spoken word poet, but I was looking forward to Uncle Rus, lisp and everything. So that was a big shocker. Next, I think I describe the book best when I say it is the hip hop yogi version of The Power of Now or The Vortex. I think most people will be surprised to know that the content of this book is far deeper than anyone could expect from the title. If you read Do You! and you're thinking this is a follow up, you will be a little thrown off. Where Do You! was more practical and action-oriented, Super Rich is extremely spiritual. Side bar: I read Do You! a couple of years ago and I should mention that it is also a life changing book. I literally got my dream job (at the time) after reading the book and putting its techniques to practice.
Super Rich focuses heavily on mediation, yoga sutras, the Bhagavad Gita and giving. In this book, Russell teaches us how to live in the moment, how to enjoy the journey, how to treat every moment like we're rich already and so much more. He talked about how we have to take pride in everything we do. If it's a job we hate or think is beneath us, we have to do it like it's our dream job. He also mentioned the importance of not chasing money and how he can't stand people that are all about money and nothing else. Russell teaches us that if we want to be super rich, we have to be super givers.
It's well worth a read especially if you're spiritual and you're interested in learning how to attract the life you want by giving and living in the now.
Super Rich is doing well on Amazon, check out where it ranks on the following charts:
- #2 in Books > Business & Investing > Management & Leadership > Motivational
- #4 in Books > Health, Mind & Body > Mental Health > Happiness
- #7 in Books > Health, Mind & Body > Self-Help > Motivational
One of the ways that helps me choose my next book is reading the reviews and rankings on Amazon, but I'd love to hear your feedback. Do you have a life-changing book that you think I should read? Please share in the comments or e-mail me.
I actually met Russell Simmons briefly a few years ago, he was at one of Kimora's events. (She gave him the idea to name this book Super Rich). Anyway, he was nice and humble.
Do you watch his show, "Running Russell Simmons"? I've seen a couple of episodes. The highlight for me was hearing Amber Rose's voice. I'd never heard her speak before.
