Learn to think like a rich dad and let your money work for you! Let the rich dad to show you the way.
As a person growing up in rather poor family I could relate to many descriptions of the way poor people mind is manipulated. So many things I needed to change in my thinking and approach to issues to be in the place I’m now. And it is still a working progress
“One dad had a habit of saying, ‘I can’t afford it.’ The other dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted I say, ‘How can I afford it?”
“The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.”
“I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education. If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone.”

I just looked at my bookshelf and saw that I have a copy of this book too. It’s a wonderful book but one that I have read a long time ago and I don’t really remember the contents. I think it’s time to re-read this book. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Vonnie, I highly recommend you to read it again then 🙂 It’s worth it!
I absolutely love Robert Kiyosaki. I have the majority of his books. I know the basis of all his books is about expanding your financial intelligence but he does a great job in this one with starting at the basics. He has led me to start my own businesses and purchase real estate and it has been great.
Our minds are a powerful thing and we really can do whatever we put our minds to.
Keep up the great writing.
Thanks for your comment Derek! I agree- our mind is powerful and we can do whatever we really focus on 🙂
I heard about this book about a year ago and it has totally changed my perspective on money and life as a whole. I grew up knowing the traditional path of life-go to school, get a job, work for 40 years, retire. But when I read this book, I realised that these traditional thought patterns that I had were utter non sense.I finished the book in 3 days! It really is a must-read for those who want to start the journey to financial freedom and independence.
Nicely put Lindsey! I’m happy for you that this book changed your view on life, it did for me too! That is way I’m recommending it 🙂
