Sad news about Thomas J. Stanley the author of “The Millionaire Next Door”

I was very saddened by the news about the author of “The Millionaire Next Door” Thomas J. Stanley died in a car accident on February 28. He was only 71. I still remember vividly the time when I first read his book. That book played a huge part of changing my thinking on wealth and financial independence. I first set out to read this book as pure entertainment because I was just curious. But it turned out to have a much bigger impact me than I had anticipated. It dawned on me that I could become the millionaire next door. That I could become wealthy and financial independent. That I could retire early. I learned many lessons from his book. Such as just because a person seems or acts rich, doesn’t mean he/she is rich. The real wealthy people aren’t the ones what I thought they were. And that you can make a high income and still be broke if you try to act rich. And financial independence gives you power and freedom to do what you really want to do. There were so many enlightening moments in the book that I can probably re-read it now and still go “Yes! That’s so true!”.

I still haven’t read all of his books. I think he has 6 books in total. I’m going to read “Millionaire Women Next Door” next. I’m sure I can learn many lessons from it too. I will continue to read his blog. I’ve heard his daughter is going to continue his work. That is very heartening.

Thank you Thomas J. Stantley for enlightening me and helping put me on the right path to wealth!
