Have you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad from Robert Kiyosaki?

The first time I read “RichDad, Poor Dad”, it was probably
between my 14 or 15’s I LOVE reading and this kind of
books were always part of our shelves thanks to mum.

Mum always ensure that we feed our minds with valuable
information besides what I learnt at school, I was a curious
little girl and she always allowed me to express myself
and respected my own –sometimes weird– opinions.

Oh mum, you always gave me the right foundation for my success.

I guess I was being a wealthypreneur without even knowing
what being a wealthypreneur meant back then.

Ok, let’s get back on track! :P… To be honest, it has already
been 12 years since I read it  for the first time and I couldn’t
remember much.

Since last year up until now I’ve listened to the “rich dad, poor dad”
audiobook probably about 10 times, and just recetly I decided
to buy the book again and read it. This time, in english.
(FYI, I’m from Peru so the first time I read it, it was in Spanish)

I started reading the book 2 days ago, and I don’t wanna finish it!
One of my rules is listen to an audio for about 1 hr and read for
about 1 hour. I usually do this right after my morning meditation,
as soon as I wake up. It is one of my rituals.

So yes, you might be saying… Ameli, you spend 2 hours reading
and listening to audios?… 2 HOURS??!!!
YES,  and I call this Investing in myself. I know that my mindset
and my time are my biggest asset so I choose to invest in them
to then, apply what I know not only in businesses, but also in
my life. Nowadays time for me is not a problem anymore as I am
a full time online entrepreneur so I can distribute my time as I please.
Of course, I get distracted sometimes!

Now before I say anything else, I’ll share with you some of
my favourite and …

#5  For when you blame your boss or someone else about situations in YOUR LIFE

“You’d Best Change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I’m the problem. If you think I’m the problem, then you have to change me.

Let me tell you, it’s easier to change yourself than everyone else”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

“There is a big difference between your profession and your business. I often ask people “What is your business?” And they will say “Oh, I’m a banker”. Then, I ask them if they own the bank? And they usually respond “No, I work there” (…)  A problem with school is that you often become what you study (…) The mistale in becoming what you study is that too many people forget to mind their own business. They spend their lives minding someone else’s business and making that person rich” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#23 For people who refuse to change…

#24

“Rich people are often creative and take calculated risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#25 – Reasons to increase your financial intelligence…

“Few people realize that luck is created. Just as money is. And if you want to be luckier and create money instead of working hard, then your financial intelligence is important. If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the “right” thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#26

“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it’s trained well, it can create enormour wealth (…) An untrained mind can also create extreme poverty that lasts lifetimes by teaching it to their families” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

ROBERT KIYOSAKI QUOTES RICH DAD POOR DAD,  YOUR MIND IS YOUR BIGGEST ASSET, WEALTHYPRENEURS

#27

“So why develop your financial genius? Only you can answer that (…) I develop my financial IQ because I want to participate in the fastest game and the biggest game in the world. (…) That is why I invest in my financial intelligence, developing the most powerful asset I have. I want to be with people moving boldly forward. I do not want with those left behind.”  (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#28

“Simple math and common sense is all that is needed to do well financially”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#29

“Great opportunities are not seen with your yes, they are seen with your mind. Most people never get wealthy because they are not trained financially to recognize opportunities right in front of them (…) To find an opportunity that everyone else has missed. You see with your mind what others miss with their eyes”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#29 – Taking the road to financial freedom…

“Always remember to have fun. This is only a game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. But have fun. Most people never win because they are more afraid of losing. That is why I found school so silly. In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk. The same is true for learning to ride a bike. (…) The same is true for getting rich. Unfortunately, the main reason most people are not reach is because they are terrified of losing. Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).

#30

  “It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. There is always risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoid it.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #31 – What is financial Intelligence?

 “Financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier. “(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#32 – About a “JOB”

“Job is an acronym for Just Over Broke” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#33

“Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit” And if you look at the pay scales of most companies, again I would say there is a degree of truth in that statement” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#34

” The net results is that most workers never get ahead. They do what they’ve taught to do: “get a secure job.” Most workers focus on working for oay and benefits that reward them in the short term, but is often disastrous in the long run” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #35 – Before choosing your career path…

“Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acqure before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the “Rat Race”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

 #36 – What is the Rat Race??

“Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of billpaying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. Their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiusly, but come tomorrow morning, they’ll still be in the same cage: great job”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#37 – So, what to do??

“When I speak to adults who want to earn more money, I always recommend the same thing (…) Often I recommend joining a network marketing company, also called multilevel marketing, if they ant to learn sales skills. Some of these companies have excellent training programs that help people get over their fear of failure and rejection, which are the main reasons people are unsuccesful. EDUCATION is more valuable than money, in the long run”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#38

“The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on building a “better hamburguer” (using the example of McDonald’s) and know little to nothing about business systems” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

Even after being told by the governor of Hawaii that he could no longer work in state government (…) He never understood that the more specialized you become, the more you are trapped and dependent on that specialty”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#41

“The main management skills needed for success are: 1. The management of cashflow; 2, The management of systems (including yourself and time with family); 3. The management of people”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#42

#43

 #44

“If you hate risk and worry…. start early”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#50

“If you have any desire to be rich, you must focus. Put a lot of your eggs in a few baskets. Do not do what poor and middle-class people do: put thir few eggs in many baskets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#51

“Staking the asset column is a high-attitude game.  It takes guts, patience and a great attitude toward failure. Losers aoid failing. And failure turns losers into winers”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#52

“How do you beat laziness? The answer is a little greed. IT’s that radio station WII-FM, which stands for ‘What’s In It-For Me?’ A person needs to sit and ask, “What’s in it for me if I’m healthy, sexy and good looking?”or “what would my life be like if I never had to work again?” Without that little greed, the desire to have something better, progress is not made. Our world progresses because we all desire a better life (…) So whenever you find yourself avoiding something you knwo you should be doing, then the only thing to ask yourself is “What’s in it for me?”Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness. ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#59

“Put into action what you learn”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#60

#64

#74

“Education and wisdom about money are important. Start early. Buy a book. Go to a seminar. Practice. Start small” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

#75

 #77

“Awaken the financial genious that lies within you. Your genious is waiting to come out” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)

After 4 days reading this book again, I’ve to admit I felt
a bit bumped when Robert said “Thank You for reading this book”
it is such a good book and there is so much great info that
I didn’t want to finish it. But, at the same time… There are more
books to read and knowledge to acquire.

As You might very well understand now, Your mindset is your biggest asset
fill it with the right information. But also, it’s not only about new information
and learning but also about TAKING ACTION towards the new things
you learn.

I hope you understand that “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” it is not about
real estateor the share market.  Robert gives this as his examples because
it is his business and his passion and he knows how to play the game of money.

Whatever your career is, and the path you have chosen – or ar about to choose-
make sure you add in some of the skills Robert mentions all along his book
and that I’ve tried to quote in this post.

Remember… TAKE ACTION towards the opportunites in front of you!

That is  what I did to get out of my “rat race”, and now I’m able to work
from home -or wherever I happen to be- from my computer, build my
empire. It is normal to feel confused at the beginning, it is normal to feel
fear and it is normal to fail. Failure is the way to success and as long
as you Learn, it is not failure. So TAKE ACTION, do it for yourself
for the life you deserve and for what you want to achieve. I share some of the
the education I’ve acquired about building my own business,
marketing, branding, selling on my private facebook group that you can access for free.
So you can learn some vital steps to Succeed in business!
