A review of MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins, an audiobook that’s now available at AUDIBLE.COM (free for first time listeners).
I have been seeking financial guidance for years, but never had the discipline to sit down and really read a complete money guide. While browsing Audible recently, I finally found just what I needed — an audiobook about pursuing financial freedom, investing and all of the important topics that have eluded me in the past. It’s called MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins.
I trust Tony’s advice when it comes to motivation and having a positive self-image — the guy has gotten results on so many fronts — so naturally I was interested in his money advice book. His steps are very clear and concise, but you have to listen when you can give your full concentration and attention. This is an audiobook that you listen to in nuggets over an extended period of time and add plenty of bookmarks.
One of his suggestions was to invest in an index fund (a mutual fund tied to a stock index like the S&P 500) instead of going with a fund that hand picks varied stocks, or worse, picking individual stocks on your own which almost always goes sour for regular people who know little to nothing about companies and the stock market. I have lost money on several occasions trying to buy individual stocks.
I also learned about long-term fixed rate annuities and an “all seasons portfolio” that maximizes return while minimizing risk. He talked about making some of these financial vehicles more accessible to younger people like myself, as many of them require that you be a minimum age.
There are still some concepts I’m trying to grasp as a beginner, but this Money Master the Game audiobook helped make things easier to understand. I imagine that certain people in the financial industry really won’t like this book because it encourages education in the common consumer and reveals the truth about the unnecessary fees charged by brokerages. So don’t trust the very negative reviews — you have to read and research these concepts for yourself.
Toward the end of the book, Tony gives a few stories about how he was finally able to conquer his financial struggles. He suggests giving more to other people if you want more blessings in your own life. And not just giving in order to receive, but because you really want to in your heart.
While I haven’t yet been able to start an index fund as of this publishing, I have taken the first steps toward doing so. I’ve significantly reduced my spending money on unnecessary items so that I can start saving toward financial freedom. One of my problems was deciding between a “want” and a “need”. For example, I use to spend almost $5 a day, 3 days a week at a coffee house. That meant that I was spending $15 a week or $60 a month JUST on coffee. Nowadays I don’t really drink coffee as much, but when I do it’s at home using an affordable brew. Another weakness is the grocery store, where I stock up on food even when I already have plenty at home. Now I make every effort to stay home instead of wandering past a supermarket.
Tony Robbins’ audiobook was the perfect start in assisting me towards gaining financial independence, and eventually freedom. I feel that my financial future is looking brighter and I’m motivated. At one point in the book, the narrator’s voice switched back over to Tony’s booming voice and I jumped to attention. He has a strong voice with an even stronger message.
I think that I’m now “at attention” in more ways than one when it comes to my finances and money matters. So I totally recommend this book to anyone who is a novice when it comes to financial matters, and those who are searching for financial freedom and independence.
I would give MONEY Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom by Tony Robbins 4.5 stars.
