Live Like The Rich: The Ultimate Guide To Living A Lavish Lifestyle by JD Martin is an interesting read for anyone who is fascinated by the lifestyles of the super wealthy. The super rich live a life that is far different than the average person. Live Like The Rich likes to focus on the difference between the wealthy and the “average” person, as well as the mindset, lifestyle, and “how-to” differences between the two segments of the population. The book is broken up into these three main categories.
The first subdivision of the book discussed the mindset of the wealthy. In this section of the book JD Martin goes into details on how the rich and super rich tend to think differently than the average person. This seems broad, but JD Martin gives some specific examples and also highlights what you can and must do to change your mindset if you want to become wealthy. One of the most clear examples include that the average person works for a per hour wage. The wealthy have figured out that there are so many hours in the day, so working on a per hour wage is rarely the path of financial success. Changing your mindset to allow money to work for you rather than you working for money is the first step towards financial freedom and wealth. There are countless other mindset changes that JD Martin discusses as well.
The second subdivision of the book goes over the lifestyle of the super rich. This is perhaps the most entertaining section of the book. This section goes over the lifestyle of the super wealthy and what they like to invest in, purchase, collect, and more. The wealthy tend to buy things like super automobiles, boats, yachts, mega mansions, fine wine, art, and more. The difference between the “toys” that the average person spends their money on versus the super wealthy is that the super wealthy “toys” tend to actually appreciate in value over time.
The last second goes over the “how-to” to become wealthy. This section offers some great advice on setting goals, deciding what you want to do with your life, and what career paths lead to financial success. JD Martin focuses on five or so ways that people can become financially independent and join the “super rich”. Most career paths don’t lead to the type of financial success discussed in the book, but JD Martin tells all about how you can choose a path that will help you achieve what you want for your life. This book is highly recommended for anyone motivated with high aspirations or any who is also fascinated by the lives of the super wealthy.
