Tim's take on what it takes to be successful is timeless and always relevant. What makes this book so powerful is Tim's willingness to share his own story in the process. I always thought Tim was this uber-successful guy. Hearing him talk about his "sideways years" after his father's death gave Tim a whole new depth. I've been a fan for quite a while and this latest effort made me even more so. The advice Tim's grandmother imparted on Tim is so simple and powerful -- kind of Forest Gump like (Momma always said...). I highlighted almost every piece of wisdom from her that he shared.

When I heard that Tim was releasing a new book that in his words was the prequel to "Love is the Killer App", I got pumped. Why? Because Tim's message of generosity, love and abundance is something we desperately need to hear right now. Drop what you're doing and get this book. Today We Are Rich takes its title from the hero of Tim's book, his grandmother Billye. It's one of her numerous mantras that pepper the book, giving it a feel of folksy wisdom without being cheesy. We hear the story of Tim's childhood with Billye and how she taught him the lessons that helped her survive and thrive in the midst of her own taxing and difficult journey. We learn those lessons with Tim, and he heaps stories and simple, practical suggestions to help us digest and internalize Billye's example. For Tim, life is about living with total confidence, which he defines as trust in yourself, other people and God. When you are totally confident, you can be generous. You can make the world a better place. Tim doesn't just rely on Billye. He draws on a wealth of thinkers from across the modern spectrum, from classics like Dale Carnegie and Norman Vincent Peale to contemporary gurus like Erwin McManus, Dave Ramsey and John Maxwell. Tim wraps this wealth of knowledge and wisdom into a very accessible package - his 7 Steps to Total Confidence. Today We Are Rich is not a self-help book; it is Tim's own story of pain and redemption, a story that Tim generously invites his readers to travel with him. If I hadn't been following Tim for the better part of a decade now, I would be tempted to write the book off as one more book about positive thinking. But I've seen Tim live out the principles he shares over and over again. Tim is one of the most generous and kind persons I know. I've never heard him say or seen him write an unkind word about anyone. He's also very clear about the advice he shares: this is not an easy task. The habits he recommends are a change from the way most of us live. But if we want to make a change, if we want to start living out of God's abundance rather than fear and scarcity, Today We Are Rich is a wonderful place to start. Tim's message is consistent: God has given us more than we could ever need. Our lives should reflect that with gratitude and generosity. I was pleasantly surprised by how clearly his faith came out in this book. Despite the fact he's clearly writing for a broad audience, Tim clearly and respectfully articulates his faith. His belief in God is the bedrock on which his 7 principles are built. His living faith is the atmosphere in which he lives out what he teaches. Ultimately, this book is about the power we have to shape our own lives. Will we use this power to live in God's image, to be loving, kind and generous? Or will we continue to buy into the scarcity mentality that causes so much disconnection, burn-out and disillusionment? The choice is ours to make. But if we're ready to step up and live the life we were created to, Tim is here to help guide us on our path. Think of him like your own personal Master Yoda. Bottom Line: Everybody should read and apply this book. But you don't have to take my word for it. Tim is giving away the first part of the book. Go get it at his website, see for yourself, and then go buy this book.

Today We Are Rich This isn’t normally I book I’d purchase and read, but I came across it at the airport when someone left it behind in the terminal. What an interesting life story! There are valuable principles in this book that are motivating and inspiring. I love how the author, Tim Saunders, credits his grandmother for being his greatest influence in life. I too can credit my grandmother with making a huge impact in my Christian walk, so I could relate with much of this book. I only wish I could’ve completed it, (but I’m happy to say it is back with it’s rightful owner.) I will be purchasing this book. It’s a keeper.

"Today we are rich" is what Tim Sanders heard his grandmother Billye say to him as a child - for indeed they had food, a roof over their heads, clothing, and enough to share with others. And those were not the only wise words she spoke to him. Throughout this book the author intersperses short stories from his childhood with truths either his grandmother taught or he has learned over the years on how to look on the bright side to gain the confidence to do well. In a clear, concise way he explains his 7 principles without forgetting to remind us that God is in control and we need to seek Him. I found this to be a power packed little book that I highly recommend.

Excellent Concepts, Very Useful. I found many useful insights here, and I plan to be going over this again. I'm confident I will gain even more from this book whenever I do. Mr. Sanders wrote this from the perspective of a business speaker, to inspire others to succeed. He includes personal stories, and inserts many excellent quotes, always citing the source. The concepts make sense, and are well presented. He did not quote Bible verses as frequently as I expected, It seemed he was tailoring the advice mostly to a wide business audience and thus avoided offending some readers, by referring to a “higher power.” Even so, this book can help you to become rich in spirit.

I thought this was a really well-written book. A short book so it was a quick read with seven principles of building confidence. I liked this book because Sanders identified the principle, for example "Exercise Your Gratitude Muscle", then gave real-life examples of the principle in action, and then gave examples of how to put it in practice in your own life. I think self-help books written in this format are very helpful because readers thoroughly understand the principle, the theory behind it, and how to implement it in their own lives. The seven principles that Sanders puts forth are not difficult complicated formulas that readers would have a hard time assimilating. They are basic, common sense approaches to how we should live and treat each other all the time. Despite the title, this is not a get-rich quick book or a financial guide book. The idea behind it is to experience success through implementing the principles and becoming a richer person through serving others. I LOVE Billye's philosophy of being rich in spirit by having everything you need and enough to share. This book would be helpful for employers, managers, pastors, leaders, employees, parents, students, and anyone who is interesting in taking simple steps to re-frame their thinking for success!

Tim Sanders’ life story is inspirational and transformative by itself, but he delivers that and much more in Today We Are Rich. Sanders declares just how necessary gratitude and connection to God are for happiness and fulfillment. Most of his inspirational wisdom is reminiscent of other self-help volumes, but it never hurts to hear good advice more than once. There were a few elements of the book that I was slightly uncomfortable about: while Sanders stresses the importance of a relationship with God, he nevertheless seems to downplay God’s role in directing and transforming lives, instead emphasizing less biblical modes like positive thinking. Similarly, while he stresses the significance of gratitude and of being charitable with one’s money, he nevertheless associated money with success and happiness far more than I was comfortable with. The life advice is mostly good, but isn’t new; if you buy this, buy it for the biography.

Still waiting 4 someone's permission to go for your dreams? maybe not if you've read 'Today We Are Rich: Harnessing the Power of Total Confidence'. Read it with a hiliter to capture every 'aha' moment. Then keep it at hand as the resource it will have become before you've closed the cover. Tim's journey back to his grandmother's common sense reveals how uncommon that sense is in today's culture. and just how much it is both missed and needed. where do we find the confidence required to accomplish the dreams, desires and design of the life for which we've been created? what beacons beckon us forward from a life that is 'less than'? Tim has answers and he's willing to share. How willing are we to break out of our rutted routines to receive these time tested truths?

Tim Sanders' book, Today We Are Rich, deals with the need for confidence in one' life to fuel your rise to a rich and influential life. I can see how he would be a popular motivational speaker. I, however, picked up this book thinking it would deal with the spiritual life and our riches in Christ Jesus. With that in mind, this book was not what I was looking for. Tim Sanders does give a logical approach to increase one's confidence and achieve one's goals in life and does mention the spiritual, but without giving it the main emphasis.

Billye, the authors adopted parent, always knew what to say when it was needed, instilling confidence and seemed to make a difference in the authors young life. Reading more like the cross between autobiography of the author and a biography of Billye with a collection of quotes and passages from other writers and famous personalities thrown in, the book shifted back and forth between all of them. The author was able to put into practice the lessons and principles that was taught to him from Billye and others and he gives the reader ways to incorporate and apply them to their lives. The advice on a positive note I learned for example: How to ignore what is bringing you down, how to have a positive mindset. On the flipside for example: I found out how to alienate people and how to pump myself up so I can be better than others. To be honest I would pick this book up and put it down quite a bit not feeling satisfied that it was a good choice for the time spent. I felt that the book did not challenge my faith. I would have given the book 2.5 stars but gave it 3 for effort. I do believe in the power of positive thinking, but just not at the expense of others.

Today We Are Rich by Tim Sanders is an ace. In my opinion, this book is destined to become a modern classic. Tim strikes the chord in our hearts and minds through his swift message. It is a book for all seasons and all ages. Tim shares the lessons he learnt from his grandmother, Billye in this book. Throughout all the chapters, he conveys the matter with a beautiful personal stories and incidents. TWAR will encourage us and rekindle the dreams we have planted in our hearts. The tips from this book are pragmatic and easy to apply in our daily life. I will use this book as a reference tool from time to time to motivate myself. Tim talks about the "sideways journey" in his life and then offers us the wisdom of Billye through the following seven principles: 1. Feed your mind good stuff. 2. Move the conversation forward. 3. Exercise your gratitude muscle. 4. Give to be rich. 5. Prepare yourself. 6. Balance your confidence. 7. Promise made, promise kept. I would give this one five out of five stars. Tim Sanders is an international speaker, a consultant to Fortune 1000 companies, the author of many books. He is a former executive at Yahoo!, where he served as chief solutions officer and also leadership coach. Today, he is the CEO of Deeper Media, an online advice-content company. Please note that I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers through CBD. Also be informed that the opinions I have expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

When I saw Tim's newest book come out, I knew by all the preparation that it was going to be great. Clearly, he outlines very simple principles for having total confidence. Principles that struck me were: 1) feeding your mind good stuff, and 2) Exercising your gratitude muscle. However, what I liked MOST about the book was Tim sharing HIS story that led him to writing the book. It connected me to the book on a much deeper level as having seen Tim speak many times, I could visualize the challenges he has gone through to get where he is today. Great read - I highly recommend it and will be sharing it with others.
