Super Fly Yogi Mogul... or, Russell Simmons

Russell Simmons, legendary co-founder of Def Jam Records just put out a new book (his second) called "Super Rich: A Guide to Having it All." What makes this book stand out amongst so many other tomes on achieving monetary success is that its primary focus is on giving, not getting. It is also written by a die-hard yogi. See... yogis can be rich, too.

In fact, yogis know best the universal law that if you want it all, you must let it all go.

Simmons shares his tipson how to go from broke to bank-rolling... but beyond any financial advice Simmons gives in his how-to-get-rich diatribe, the greatest investment he says one must make in order to fulfill material desires is an investment into one's own SPIRIT.

Simmons' Top Principles to Super Richness:

#1 Give Your Talents Until They Can’t Live Without It

“Wake up in the morning and find out what you want to give as opposed to what you want to get,” he says. “Through this practice of becoming a good giver you become a good getter.”

#2 Relentlessly Pursue Your Goals Without Appearing Needy

Simmons’ law of attraction says: “when you chase things, they will always run from you.”

#3 If You Don’t Love it, Leave it Alone

“People can sell anything,” from bombs to drugs, he says, even though there are very serious ramifications to those actions. “I want to stress is that making money just for the sake of getting paid is a pedestrian activity that you can rise above.”

#4 Let Go of the Results

“You really have no control over the results, you have control over the action, he says. “So make sure you perform your action and your duty well.”

#5 Get Open

“You want to always be open, creative and fluid as possible, and never become rigid, old or tight,” he writes, encouraging readers to let loose and lower your defenses.
