Wow, just wow how much I learned from Robert T. Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!. I am beyond amazed.
Robert T. Kiyosaki talks about his two fathers (I assume the “rich father” isn’t really a father of his), one who was rich, and one that was poor. They both were smart, but only one of them was financially successful.
I had always thought that there was something wrong with working for others, and it simply wasn’t going to be the way to go if you wanted to become rich. This book solidifies all my thoughts. Rather than thinking that being part of the rat race isn’t the right way to go, now I’m fully convinced it isn’t how to I want to live my life.
Now, as the book also points out, working for others isn’t something to be frowned upon. Quite the opposite. That isn’t what I’m talking about. The way the rich become rich is because they don’t work for money, they have money work for them. With this idea in your head you can already start to see the difference between the rich and the poor.
I have a real life example of people being poor, despite making a lot of money. I have members in my family that have high level of education, they work in a company that pays them good salary, but they still struggle with money. They haven’t figured out how to make money work for them – they work for money, and make someone else who knows how to make money work for them, rich in the process.
This book teaches you about liabilities and assets, how to recognize one from the other, and help you make better choices in the future. This book also teaches you about the importance of financial education over all other education, how accounting is important, and how anyone can do it. You will also learn how fear controls you and makes you stay poor.
After reading Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not! my eyes are now wide open. I’m more determined than ever to pursue my dreams as a writer and also as an investor. My life will be very different from now on.
After you read this book, and if you apply what you learn to your life, you will more than likely see success in your future. Everything said in this book makes sense, but only the smart and brave enough will learn from it.
This is, without a doubt, one of the best books I’ve ever read.
