Here are a few quotes I liked from the book-
Spending money to show people how much money you have is the fastest way to have less money.
Good investing is not necessarily about making good decisions. It’s about consistently not screwing up.
your savings is the gap between your ego & your income. Beyond your basic & comfort needs, the money you spent is your ego approaching money. You just spent to show the people that you have money.
People tend to want wealth to signal to others that they should be liked and admired. But in reality, those other people often bypass admiring you, not because they don’t think wealth is admirable, but because they use your wealth as a benchmark for their desire to be liked and admired.
If you want to build better financial habits, The Psychology of Money is a must-read book for you. To get overview of this book, I would recommend reading The Psychology of Money Summary.
