The Wealth Money Can’t Buy Summary (Robin Sharma)

Robin Sharma’s book, The Wealth Money Can’t Buy, challenges traditional notions of success by introducing eight pillars of a rich and fulfilling life. It goes beyond financial prosperity to encompass emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

When I read this wonderful book, I realized how little I knew about life. I was willing to write a summary as soon as possible for readers who wanted to take advantage of its content. It is truly an uplifting book about the path of human existence.

Some readers may think that it’s a long summary or a stop in between. However, I hoped the reader would benefit from it and gain valuable perspectives on prioritizing meaningful experiences over material wealth.

So, let’s understand the 8 forms of wealth through Robin Sharma’s wonderful book The Wealth Money Can’t Buy and transform our lives for the betterment of ourselves and our loved ones.

The 1st Form Of The Wealth (Growth)

The wealth within you, your essence, is your kingdom.

A simple idea that’s too often neglected is to appreciate yourself. Personal development is the best work you could ever do. Many people roll their eyes when they hear the word “self-improvement.

Doing mental training to transform everyday human insecurity into rare-air self-assurance and personal limitations into extraordinary abilities. An average way of navigating life in a breathtakingly exceptional journey that upholds the promise you have been given.

Live the Outer Change Law that Follows the Inner Change Law

The short story is about a father sitting on his chair and reading a newspaper. His young son sat near him and urged him to play with him, but every time, the father tried to neglect the son and continued his reading.

Finally, Father had an idea. There was a picture of a globe in the newspaper, so he tore it out, ripped it into dozens of pieces, and handed it to his son. And said,” Go and put this together. Thinking that it will take lots of time. The boy returned soon with the globe.

Children are more highly evolved than adults when it comes to teaching us the lessons we need to learn.

His dad asked him how he had done it so early. It was easy, Dad. On the other side of the globe was a person, And once I got the person together, the world was okay.

The key idea is Once you get yourself together, your world will be okay.

Don’t Be a Resentment Collector, and It’s Ok to Be Sloppy

When we are not treated as we wish to be treated, it’s easy to lose energy. These experiences create emotions of hurt, frustration, and irritation, so you swallow them all and wallow in them. And let the resentment grow faster, like a great gaping wound.

Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, remember that not everyone in this world has the advantages you have had, said Nick Carraway.

Sometimes, in a life journey, it is okay to be sloppy. Robin said he is not saying that doesn’t make you bad or that keeping your schedule empty gives you the freedom to be bored. He wants to emphasize that being imperfect in your inner life is perfectly acceptable.

Self-mastery and personal growth must never be a grind. Otherwise, you will drain the magic out of the entire enterprise.

Memorize the PENAM Principle

Have you ever wondered how you became the person that you are?

The answer is a five-letter acronym: PENAM. These five things caused and created your core beliefs, basic behaviors, daily habits, and general way of being.

  • P- The “P” is for the parent. They did the best they could based on their knowledge and beliefs.
  • E -The “E” stands for the environment. Your ecosystem has a dramatic impact on the way you show up each day. Violent TV shows and toxic news feed negativity to our brains.
  • N- “N” stands for the nation. Growing up in a war zone or a country that suffers from social volatility will deeply affect how you see things.
  • A- “A” stands for associations. Who you spend time with impacts how you think, feel, and act like your friendship circle.
  • M-” M” represents the Media. Regardless of where you live, you receive a constant torrent of hypnosis and seduction from many forms of media every day.

PENAM. These letters explain how you became you.

The 1st Form Of The Wealth (Growth)

The Person Who Reads A Lot And Writes In A Journal Wins

Reading daily grows your knowledge base and allows you to transcend difficult situations, make fewer mistakes, and predict the future. Make a rule of reading books for 45/15 minutes, and keep a journal. There are some good reasons to keep a journal every day.

  • Journaling promotes wise behavior.
  • It boosts artistic creativity and captures peak ideas.
  • Journaling captures magical moments so that you can experience them.
  • It’s like writing a prayer on paper.
  • Journaling can give you a monastery to process through pain, sorrow, and other challenging emotions.

The 2nd Form Of Wealth (Wellness)

“Continues improvement is better than delayed perfecting.”
Mark Twain

When you are young, “we are willing to sacrifice all of our health for the pursuit of wealth, and when we are old, we became willing to sacrifice all our wealth for health”.

Health is a type of wealth. If you don’t feel good physically, mentally, and emotionally, then possessions and fame in the world, are not worth it.

Explore and follow this wellness journey to improve your health and wealth.

  • Life is too short not to get really fit. And see food as a medicine.
  • Scientific research has found that walking in the woods significantly reduces blood pressure, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Nature also lowers the stress hormone cortisol and improves happiness levels.
  • Let food be the medicine and medicine be the food,” instructed the father of Medicine, Hippocrates. Your dietary habits have a profound impact on your overall health.
  • For example, blueberries, apples, salmon, and green tea have been shown to promote happiness.
  • You should also consider water as medicine.
  • Drinking four to six glasses of water daily will reward you with many health benefits, such as increased blood circulation, improved skin vitality and brain functioning, decreased joint pain, and a healthier heart.

How to Become a Healthy Person and Live Life to the Fullest

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.“
Muhammad Ali

  • Greatness truly is the antidote to worry. First, no section on health could be completed without talking about mental fitness. Protecting your mental health also improves your physical health. Do your best, then let life do the rest.
  • Meditate regularly if you are in a high-pressure role, such as a business titan, financial trader, or top athlete. It will work like a miracle in your life.
  • Practice the naked sunbath rule. As you work on building the second form of wealth, the dazzling value of spending time in moderate sunshine (10–20 minutes) increases your serotonin level, which increases your happiness level.
  • A sweaty workout is never a silly idea. Do it daily. You will always feel much better after the workout than before.
  • Take a 30-day zero-sugar challenge because sugar can lead to a leaky gut, diabetes, fatty liver disease, and heart problems. It can promote cancer, create brain disturbances, and increase metabolic disorders. This practice of leaving the sugar works extremely well.
  • Commit to a dopamine detox. Social media apps are designed to build and release neuroregulatory signals, which make you feel driven and delighted. Every time you see a post, it causes you to release more dopamine.
  • Sleep more to feel better and become healthier. Sleep is not a luxury but a necessity. When we sleep, a mechanism is invoked that washes the brain. Proper sleep rinses the brain of toxins and repairs brain cells damaged by stress.
  • Five key characters serve their physical wellness and contribute to their lives as a whole. Focus, dedication, excellence, persistence, and improvement.
  • Laugh more to live longer. “We stop playing because we grow older; we grow old because we stop playing,” Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw noted.
  • “To breathe properly is to live properly is to live properly, “taught by the all-time sages. Take a breath like a Samurai.
  • Consider the cold shower and decrease doctors.” cold immersion” habits such as ice baths and swimming in freezing water can lead to more positive moods, enhanced cognitive function and immune response, and quick recovery after exercising.
  • Exercise your spiritual wellness. Heath requires you to exercise and optimize in four important areas: Mindset, Heartset, Healthset, and Soulset. Without dedication to improving in each of these areas, you will never, ever be able to live your richest and most beautiful life.

The 3rd Form Of Wealth (Family)

A happy family is but an earlier heaven.”
George Bernard Shaw

The third form of wealth is family. Family is one of life’s sweetest rewards and a currency that is exponentially more valuable than any amount of money.

Investing in your closest relationships and enriching your days with higher love is among the most intelligent and highest-yielding investments you can make. So, let us start our work together on this third and essential form of wealth: family.

Keep Going For Surprises And Create A Love Account

Every day, contribute to this special reserve by doing something small to bring joy to the life of a loved one around you. Those tiny, daily deposits into the love account will give you far more happiness than a safe full of jewels.

Remember that your self-worth is always higher than your net worth. And sometimes small gifts matter a lot. Here, Mr. Robin gives his example. Once, his mother asked him, “What can I bring for you?”

He usually said,”Nothing, Mamma. When her mother showed up, looking beautiful and elegant as always, she clutched a little bag or something. She said Robin, this is a fresh mint for your morning tea.

In life, we often forget that the small things, like his beloved mom’s mint bought from a farmer’s market, with a deep love for his son, are really the big things.

“Without the rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Three Greet Friend Rule

It fits nicely into the section on the third form of wealth: family and rich relationships (friends).

If you have three friends, you are a rich man. Keep your old friends close because they are a great treasure and difficult to find.

“ Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
Mark Twain

Keep memories of the good times you spent with your family, friends, and kids so that you can live life again in those positive moments. They are actually treasures of life. Whenever you have time, kindly hug your parents and your kids.

Children grow up quickly. Promise yourself that you will spend your time with them. But if you don’t act on a life. Weeks slip into months and months into the years, and years will slip into decades. The tiny and lovely hand will turn into a grown-up when time passes.

Listen More Than You Speak; Don’t Be a Doormat

Social media has trained us to become a species of broadcasters rather than receivers. We always do self-praise (Me, Me, Me).

But other humans don’t like that. In real human interaction, we do the same thing. We talk, and then we listen. You can read a book summary to learn more about people’s behavior by Dale Carnegie’s, How To Win Friends And Influence People Summary.

People will only take advantage of you if you allow them to take advantage of you. You can set boundaries. And to stand up for yourself. So, do it. Please.

We truly do teach how to treat us. In relationships, we very much get what we settle for. And received what we accepted. The balance you need to master is this:

  • Be respectfully assertive.
  • Polite yet brave.
  • Civil but candid.
  • Loving but self-respecting.

Other people’s bad behavior is not your business. If someone disappoints or hurts you, that’s on them, not you.

They are the ones who lose reputation and personal respect and degrade their self-love.

You are living your truth, steadfast in your values, and treating people well. Good karma will reward you, and inner peace will be your repayment.

The 4th Form Of The Wealth (Craft)

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

One of the highest human hunger is the need for meaning.

Working too much can make us sick, hurt our relationships, and make us feel less alive. It can also cause us to lose creativity, positivity, and freedom when people are so caught up in their heads that they can’t sense their hearts.

Once, Mr. Robin in Dubai was asked a question:” Robin, does everything happen by luck, or is it what we do that makes the luck ?”

Mr. Robin replied that I do believe in APR: Absolute Personal Responsibility. You see, my friend, we don’t get lucky-we make luck. Don’t CBE complain, blame, and excuse.

Instead of dwelling on the loss, let’s focus on how we can learn and grow from it. By reflecting on what we can improve, we can prevent similar setbacks in the future. This process of self-reflection is a sign of strength and a key part of achieving success. Remember, positive actions often lead to positive outcomes.

Starts A Stop Doing List

You see, a great and sweet life is more about what you choose to stop. So, let’s start a stop-doing list.

  1. Stop comparing your real life to the fake lives manufactured (with filters and all) online.
  2. Stop buying so many things you really do not need.
  3. Stop accepting every social invitation that comes your way because you have a deep-seated addiction to being liked.
  4. Stop stressing about unreal problems and worrying about things that will never happen.
  5. Stop spending the prime hour of the day engaging in superficial distractions and digital diversions.
  6. Stop scrolling when it’s time to be creating, and stop chatting when time is productive.

Avoid The “No One Notice It

One day, Mr. Steve’s father instructed him to paint the fence outside their home. After some time, he asked,” Steve, did you paint the fence?

His father carefully inspected the work and observed,” Steve, you have done a good job painting outside the fence, but you did not paint the inside.”

Steve replied,” But, Dad, no one will see the inside of the fence.” His father smiled and said, But Son, we will.”

Years later, Steve Jobs and his team embarked on the first Apple Macintosh. While aesthetics were important, Jobs had a deeper vision: “Make it beautiful, yes,” he’d tell them, “but don’t forget the inside. That’s where the true artistry lies.

One of his team members speculated,” But Steve, no one will see inside the computer. And, of course, Steve paused and then replied But we will. Always remember that someone is watching you and is higher than you are.

Learning is a superpower, and developing a lust for books is important. Mr. Robin wants us to fill our brains, hearts, and homes with good books.

The 5th Form Of The Wealth (Money)

If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free: If our wealth commands us. We are poor indeed.
Edmund Burke

Having enough money and financial worth to feel like you can live on your terms is essential to a truly rich life.

The key is using money to serve you rather than becoming captive to the pursuit of cash, allowing all seven currencies of wealth to be neglected.

The feeling of being enough is beautiful. Knowing the fulfillment of being satisfied with what we do makes us wealthy. Money can make things easier for you and solve many problems.

Money can do a lot of good for your family and your community. Human beings get what they expect. Here are four proven ways to help you write in the mentality of prosperity and the emotionality of a healthier relationship with your income.

  1. Treat yourself to visiting Royalty.
  2. Visit super rich places.
  3. Do a Scarcity Inventory.
  4. Create your ideal life collage.

Your Vitality Serves You Financially

We have to invest in the best exercise machines and have personal trainers, massage therapists, and nutritionists. We profoundly understand that developing limitless energy is one of the great keys to legendary prosperity.

Invest in yourself and improve your mindset by reading, affirming, planning, and MPV (meditation, visualization, and prayer).

To extend our longevity, WE should meditate, monitor the quality of our sleep, take an ice bath, sweat daily in hot saunas, and breathe fresh air regularly.

Sure, starting these activities costs money, but disease costs more. Being healthy equals more energy, which in turn means greater productivity. More productivity results in superior value sent out into your industry.


See Another Winning As Your Victory

Jealous people rarely find financial freedom. Jealousy is a thought poison that ruins creativity, pollutes productivity, minimizes bravery, and keeps you from growing into the highest version of your finest version.

Feeling animosity for someone else’s victory steals time you might have spent producing your own. It’s just an unuseful habit.

Always use wealthy words. The beginning of transformation is to increase your awareness of the quality of your language. Raise your communication skills to the next level of mastery.

The 6th Form Of The Wealth (Community)

Intelligent people tend to have less friends than the average person. The Smarter you are, the more selective you become.
Nikola Tesla

Forget the idea of community as just your neighborhood and a place where you live, shop, dine, and walk. Mr. Robin uses the term to encompass your broader social network – your “human tribe,” essential for a fulfilling and joyful life.

As the proverb goes, “Your network determines your net worth.” The more positive and inspiring people you surround yourself with, the better you’ll feel about yourself and your life

Make Good On Your Promises And Establish A Mastermind Alliance

When you tell someone in your community that you will do something, do it. You will be trustworthy, believable, and memorable to everyone you meet.

For example, tell a family or friend that you will take them to dinner for their birthday, then book a restaurant and take them out for the treat.

This method is wonderful. It’s called a Mastermind Alliance. This group of two or more people meets regularly to share their key projects.

Encourage each other to go further, offer solutions to challenging problems, and engage in interesting conversation that pushes the growth that makes your days greater.

The Law Of The Vanished Loved One And Karma

“Let Karma do your dirty work and let success be your revenge” is powerful and practical.

The universe works in a way where what you put out tends to come back to you. So, treat everyone in your life fairly, honestly, and respectfully. Be generous with your kindness and positivity; that positive energy will likely be reflected back in your own experiences.

Treat people the way you wish people would treat you. Treat everyone you meet like you might never see them again. Because accidents, losses, and emergencies are a part of life. Because people die, co-workers move on, life partners get old, and children grow up.

So when you are with those you love (like), be present, real, and totally alive instead of checking your phone. (Never check your digital device when you are with a human being in front of you. It’s not cool. It’s rude.)

Most of us take the people closest to us for granted until we lose them. So, please behave well with your loved one before losing them.

Be a major gift giver because it gives you more happiness instead of being a taker. Being generous and caring and putting a smile on people’s faces is one of the highest joys. Increase your Charisma.

“ You can curse the darkness or light the candle.”

Christopher Morley.

Your passion is contagious, and your personal energy can be magnetic if you do the right thing. Please remember that you have more magic within you than you are currently experiencing.

Here are seven ways to increase your charisma factor so you bring more inspiration to the world.

  1. Use people’s Name
  2. Be on Time
  3. Have beautiful manners
  4. Simile sincerely
  5. Be more interested than interesting.
  6. Be vulnerable
  7. Be an original

“Dig your well before you are thirsty.” The human connection will make their life and your life prosperous if you develop mutually rewarding, profound, fulfilling relationships. And make everyone you meet feel special.

We are approaching the end of the sixth form of wealth, and a strong and splendid community of splendid people surrounds us.

The 7th Form Of The Wealth (Adventure)

The important thing is not how many years in your life but how much life in your years.
Edward Stieglitz

Too many of us live the same year eighty times and call it a life.

They get up in the same way, think the same thoughts, are consumed by the same worries, walk to the same place, eat the same food, and see the same faces.

We were not meant to live like this. Adventure is our ancestry and one of the biggest opportunities to lead your richest life.

Adding more wonder into your days -whether through actual travel or by a reading book that transports you to a new land. Rich memories are more valuable than cash money.

Watch Documentaries And Take Digital Sabbaticals

Documentaries provide you with intimate knowledge of how a great human being did.

A good documentary allows you to enter into another person’s existence. It helps you learn why they dreamed their dreams and how they achieved them, which can boost your inspiration.

The more you watch, the more you will understand the highest way for you to live.

On the contrary, you have to be completely free from technology once a week.

That means no phone, social media, chats, or online purchases. To be completely present and centered.

  • If you want to change your life quickly, say goodbye to everyone who makes you feel bad. If they are family members, see them less often. If they are friends, they do not linger to grow with you. Free yourself from the happiness stealer.
  • Start a garden and add more adventure to your day, it does not mean you need to travel to foreign lands. Occasionally, all you need to do is begin at your own home.

Methods For Having An Adventure in life

Robbin tells us some methods for more adventures in life. So, let’s begin the journey.

Slow down everything. This means to breathe, chew, talk, and walk slowly. Think more slowly and feel more profoundly. Slowing everything down-verses speeding everything up.

Go ghost for a year, a powerful idea for a year, go dark. Say no to social invitations, refuse new friendships, stop shopping at stores, avoid going to restaurants, and pull back from the world. You should make yourself your best and highest self. Then, once done, return to the world, transformed and born new.

Make more memories instead of more money. Too much money can be a drug for extremely ambitious, driven, perfectionist people.

Don’t be so busy being productive that you betray your soul’s longings and become boring, uninteresting, and lifeless. Don’t be so driven that you forget how to be human, And don’t be so serious that you stop laughing at silliness.

Happiness is an inside job. Focusing on materialistic things will only achieve short-term happiness. Joyfulness is the internal state you create that makes you happy (your habits, behavior, accomplishment, and adventure).

The 8th Form Of The Wealth (Service)

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
Mahatma Gandhi

Being good to people makes you a wealthy person. It is not only a belief but also a true statement. Your contribution matters.

“ To live in a heart we leave behind is not to die.”
Thomas Cambell

Memorize the three wishes of Alexander the Great. By this, he wants to clarify the three truths of life.

  • First, only the world’s best doctor should carry his coffin.
  • Second, he wanted the street to be littered with his gold and precious gems.
  • Third, he wanted his hands to hang outside the coffin.

The first statement means the greatest doctor and medicine cannot prevent a human being from dying.

In the second line, please understand that money made after death remains on earth.

Third and most important, we are born with nothing and will die empty-handed.

Apply The Kindness

Want to remove your worries and dissolve all trouble?

Yes, you can lose your worries and solve others’ troubles by being kind wherever you go.

Nothing can make our life, or the lives of others, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.

At the end of their lives, one of the top retreats of people is that they wish they had treated their family, friends, and coworkers with more graciousness, gentleness, and generosity.

It’s never a bad thing to do a good thing. Real happiness, peace, and lasting personal freedom come from being a blessing to others and doing good things. Live fully so you can die empty.

“No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Anne Frank
