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 :)

Few quotes:

“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.”
