You have sufficient money? What would you do if you had enough? What is enough anyway? Do you know how to be an administrator of your resources?
What do you think of the money? Is money your friend? Or are money and evil lurking around every corner (coming from the belief that money is the root of all evil)? This article is about belief systems that hold us back, keep us poor, and in control of debt.
Money is just energy. As human beings, we have the right and responsibility to learn to use money for our benefit and that of others. You cannot be a good steward if you are afraid of what you are a steward of.
In “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” Robert T Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter, CPA explore what it’s like to work with money from the point of view of being rich and the rest of us. That is the beauty of this book. Twenty percent of the population generates eighty percent of the wealth. That’s the 80/20 rule. If you are in the 80% earning 20% of the wealth, you may have judgments about that other group. But have you walked in their shoes?
Kiyosaki tells his story about growing up in a “regular” money house. Most of us go to school, get an education, get a job, earn money, and pay taxes and bills. Hopefully we can save some money for college and the kids’ retirement. The masses: some win and have a little money, others get by and many depend on government rights to get to the grave.
Kiyosaki also tells about his friend’s father who was “rich”. He knew how to work with money, play with money concepts, be with money, and make money work for him. Kiyosaki had the best of both worlds. He could see where life would take him if he chose to be afraid of money.
He chose to learn about money. This book is about his journey. It’s full of stories as you learned how to earn money, as well as stories where you helped others learn about money. Kiyosaki also gives his 10-point plan to get started and stay on track.
This is a great book. It will give you a great idea of how people with money think and act. Read this book. It can make you think about your beliefs about money. There is another side to the money story. You deserve to open yourself up to all financial possibilities.
