10 lessons from rich dad, poor dad- by Robert Kiyosaki

I think more than anything else this book served as a
firm reminder that the more time you spend on your education and, in this case,
your financial education, the more financially independent
you’ll be able to be. In other words, you become what you
study. One of the major topics in the book is that too many people get stuck in a rat race where they go to school to find a safe, reliable job,
with a lot of benefits and promotional structure, take that type of job, save their
money little by little, pay their bills and expenses first, and then spend what they have left over last,
only to repeat the same cycle for the rest of their working
lives… ultimately never
allowing them to get ahead or become financially independent.

Robert Kiyosaki argues that there are other ways to become financially independent by having money work for you as opposed to working for money your whole life. He talks about real estate, the
stock market, and high
return investing strategies and how, if you take the time
to really learn about what you’re doing, it really is less of a gamble and more of a
logical and smart strategy.

Getting rich and earning
money quick hasn’t ever been a top priority of mine –
and I don’t think it ever will be. I believe in learning how to be happy with less. But
money is a major facilitator of dreams and would allow me the opportunity to do things that I wouldn’t be able to do otherwise… And I have a lot of dreams I’m trying to pursue! My top 10 favoritequotes from Rich Dad, Poor
Dad that resonated with me and I found worthy of sharing!

life is hard.” ~ Robert

“Today, I often meet
people who are too busy
to take care of their
wealth. And there are
people too busy to take
care of their health. The
cause is the same.
They’re busy, and they
stay busy as a way of
avoiding something they
do not want to face.” ~
Robert Kiyosaki
#3
“Failure inspires
winners. And failure
defeats losers. It is the
biggest secret of
winners. It’s the secret
that losers do not know.The greatest secret of winners is that failure inspires winning; thus,
they’re not afraid of
losing.” ~ Robert
Kiyosaki

#2
“…one dad had a habit of saying, “I can’t afford it.” The other dad forbade those words to
be used. He insisted I
ask, “How can I afford
it?” One is a statement,
and the other is a
question. One lets you
off the hook, and the
other forces you to
think.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki

#1
“In today’s fast-
changing world, it’s not
so much what you know anymore that counts,
because often what you know is old. It is how
fast you learn. That skil is priceless.” ~ Robert
Kiyosaki
