    For those who follow YMOYL, what one point grabbed your attention first?

    For me it would be the concept of not basing my identity on what I do for money. That was an instant kaboom! for me, meaning that I was interested in knowing more. What grabbed your attention first? Rob

    Mindful decision-making with each purchase.

    Each thing I buy represents segments of my life energy. A stash of cash represents freedom.

    This one resonated (and still does) very strongly for me too, IL. Rob

    Realizing that I could invest the cost of the shiny-item-of-the-day instead, and have a perpetual income stream.

    Is that $5 latte really worth 25 cents a year, *forever*? Nope.

    This one for me, too. And lately DW (who has not read the book) was introduced to this concept and has bought into it.

    This one, too, very much so. These three words resonate very deeply with me, also. Rob

    My real hourly wage...what an eye-opener! Linking that to cash = life energy has been a complete game-changer for me. Truly, YMOYL is one of the most life-changing books I've ever read.
