Super Rich: A Guide to Having It All, by Russell Simmons.
Though himself ‘super-rich’, Russell Simmons doesn’t share a business plan for your own success, but he does impart priceless gems on the ingredients necessary for all success. He says that true riches are defined as finding your hidden potential, making a positive impact on the world, and being happy with life. However, learning the secrets that lead you to true riches will also manifest itself in business, financial, and personal success. You will see that when you take the focus off your own success and care about the success of others, positive things will happen in your life. You will find favour with others and doors of opportunity will open. He even speaks from a personal standpoint and shares advice on how to handle previous relationships amicably, from a place of unconditional love. Bet you didn’t think that had anything to do with being ‘super-rich’ now did you? Don’t get me wrong this book’s not airy fairy, it’s essentially about finding your gift and figuring out a way to express that gift and share it with the world. You’re already rich if your spirit is rich. He believes that each of us has a gift given to us by God. It is crucial to identify your gift, and pursue it in every way possible. If your gift is not pursued you will suffer, he warns. You must take every opportunity to share your gift with the world, and not worry about receiving money for it. A strange paradox, but Simmons reassures us the money will come. All the other stuff is just “noise” says Simmons, which must be ignored as we lose ourselves in what we’re most passionate about. Russell Simmons also describes the toys which many wealthy people surround themselves with as “noise”, and redefines success not in terms of financial gain, but as a combination of consciousness and compassion – the “Two Cs”. At times Uncle Yogi gets a bit deep as he expresses his view on us having the same calmness at a funeral as you would when watching a baby smile. He’s probably at a much more advanced stage of enlightenment than me, but that sounds like a bit of a stretch for anyone, even Mother Theresa who he said at times questioned her own relationship with God. The message though is to break free of the boundaries that you have either imposed on yourself, or allowed to be imposed on you by others. Get rid of the constraints or feelings of the need for money and toys.
