One of my dreams come true was meeting Brian Tracy, one of my personal heroes. I started reading his personal development books when I was 9 years old and have loved learning from him ever since.
Brian Tracy is a success expert who has produced over 300 video and audio learning programs and has written over 50 top selling books on the topics of leadership, self-esteem, goals, productivity, and the Psychology of success, which have been translated into dozens of languages. He’s traveled and spoken in over 80 countries on six continents!
One of the most troubling myths about rich and successful people is that they all come from money and success. In his youth, Brian was very poor and sometimes lived out of his car. He owned only one shirt and a clip on tie and washed them every night so he could look good working the next day…and I could write a long list of his financial hardships. The truth is that most millionaires I know are self-made.

But Brian did not focus on where he was or even where he was coming from. He focused on where he was going. He started studying the common habits of the people who were successful and decided to practice them.
Brian mastered the money game and has become a success in all areas of his life: he’s happily married, a good father, in good fitness and health, has no addictions, and constantly gives back to the community. Profiting from your passion is only one aspect of a joyful, balanced life.

To follow up on the 17 powerful principles for amassing wealth we previously discussed, I decided to share 17 out of the “21 Absolutely Unbreakable Laws Of Money” from Brian Tracy’s audio book. These money laws will help you stop worrying about having enough money to cover monthly bills and expenses, so you can enjoy the things and the people that most matter in life.
- The Law of Cause and Effect: Everything happens for a reason; there is a cause for every effect.
- The Law of Belief: Whatever you truly believe, with feeling, becomes your reality.
- The Law of Expectations: Whatever you expect, with confidence, becomes your own self-fulfilling prophecy.
- The Law of Attraction: You are a living magnet; you invariably attract into your life the people, situations and circumstances that are in harmony with your dominant thoughts.
- The Law of Correspondence: Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world and corresponds with your dominant patterns of thinking.
- The Law of Abundance: We live in an abundant universe in which there is sufficient money for all who really want it and are willing obey the laws governing its acquisition. [God is good!]
- The Law of Exchange: Money is the medium through which people exchange their labor in the production of goods and services for the goods and services of others.
- The Law of Capital: Your most valuable asset, in terms of cash flow is your physical and mental capital, your earning ability.
- The Law of Time Perspective: The most successful people in any society are those who take the longest time period into consideration when making their day-to-day decisions.
- The Law of Saving: Financial freedom comes to the person who saves ten percent or more of his income throughout his lifetime.
- The Law of Conservation: It’s not how much you make, but how much you keep, that determines your financial state.
- Parkinson’s Law: Expenses rise to meet income. [Translation: pay yourself first!]
- The Law of Three: There are three legs to the stool of financial freedom: savings, insurance and investment.
- The Law of Investing: Investigate before you invest.
- The Law of Accumulation: Every great financial achievement is an accumulation of hundreds of small efforts and sacrifices that no one ever sees or appreciates.
- The Law of Magnetism: The more money you save and accumulate, the more money you attract into your life.
- The Law of Accelerating Acceleration: The faster you move toward financial freedom, the faster it moves toward you.
I believe these are timeless principles that can apply to money and to any area of life. I love #15 because as a mompreneur, often working from the kitchen counter in my pajamas, it may seem to others that my career is lesser than one in corporate or a government agency. Harold B. Lee once said that the most important work we will ever do will be within the walls of our own homes, and I believe this applies to both motherhood and mompreneurship.
Which laws of money are you going to start to apply to enhance the quality of your life and the lives of the people you love?
