For January, I’ve selected “The Path to Happiness and Wealth: How to Enjoy Money and Life at the Same Time” by Steve Rhode.

I chose “The Path to Happiness and Wealth” to start the new year because Rhode makes the case that many of us need an attitude adjustment if we are ever to become rich — in spirit.

“Financial success is measured more by your state of mind and internal prosperity than money in the bank,” Rhode writes. “Unless you can find peace with the money you have right now, more trailing zeros in the bank will not help.”

“When your money takes control of your life, your wants become needs, and your needs become wants,” Rhode says in the book. “Spending money you can’t afford to spend only compromises your future.”

I like this book because it’s not so much a nuts-and-bolts blueprint on how to pay off your debts but a conversation — sometimes stern, other times warm — about the need to understand how the mismanagement of money can be demoralizing. Rhode reveals in the book that in 1990 he and his wife filed for bankruptcy.

But, he says: “From that pain and financial devastation, I was able to go on to help others. God gave me a doctorate in financial defeat. And as strange as it may sound today, I’m grateful for the blessing.”

Even now, Rhode writes, “after a period of prolonged economic prosperity, our country is packed with people who lack confidence, feel lonely and unhappy, and are trying to have more and more ‘stuff’ because they think the stuff will make them confident, secure and loved.”

“But at some point, you have to achieve some peace and satisfaction with what you have,” Rhode said in an interview.

Ultimately, Rhode said, the path to happiness and wealth begins by striking a balance. “If you could get some balance in your money life, then you’d stop squirreling money away out of fear, and you’d stop spending more than you can afford because you are bored, unhappy, or deceiving yourself,” he writes.

And here’s how you achieve financial balance, according to Rhode: “Take the money you make, meet your obligations, save some and have fun with the rest. If you focus on saving for tomorrow, you won’t live the rich and fulfilling life you want to live today. If you spend everything today, you won’t have anything for tomorrow.”

The Beach Misses You

The Beach Misses You by Steve RhodeThis book came to me out of the blue on a slow cruise to Mexico. I sat on the deck and wrote it out longhand while watching miles and miles of ocean roll by. Some of it was actually written while sitting on San Francisco Beach in Cozumel, and the picture in the book was taken as we rolled down the road in our rented car. This book talks about the balance and purpose of life and money and tries to put it all into balance.

Thank you for sending me a copy of The Beach Misses You. It’s not just a financial fable. This book is also a simple blueprint and guide for recognizing what’s truly important in your life. I was especially impressed with how well you captured the internal struggles and feelings people experience when they’re healing their relationships with money — and how easily you provided a model for people to follow so they can work through their financial struggles together with lovingkindness. Thank you for all you do to help people move past their attachment to credit and move into a life of true financial freedom. Keep up the awesome work, and please let me know how I can provide a link to people who want to download their own copy of The Beach Misses You! – Paula Langguth Ryan
