Robert Kiyosaki, author of bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad as well as 25 others financial guide books, has spent his career working as a financial educator, entrepreneur, successful investor, real estate mogul, and motivational speaker, all while running the Rich Dad Company.
After my first business hit bottom, It was my rich dad who encouraged me to keep going. He reminded me that most great entrepreneurs fail many times. But the most important lesson was that although we had a great product, we didn’t have a great business.
There are many, many ways to get rich, but there are only a few personal reasons why you want to get rich. Find your why, and then you will find your how. Your will makes finding your way possible. Today I’ll break down how to answer the most important question.
Those who control the money supply want us to need more and more of their toxic paper money. The more we need money, the more money they can print, the weaker we become. That’s how you risk becoming dependent on the government to solve your money problems… Until you arm yourself with a real financial education.
The public will soon lose faith in the government’s manipulation of our money. Then comes the rush to hold gold and silver as a hedge against inflation and the next bubble of greed. Gold could go above $3,000 an ounce, and silver may even someday be the same price as gold… the clock is ticking to prepare yourself for the coming collapse of paper assets.
A big part of my success in life today was transforming my view of money. We all struggle with the feeling that the world is one of scarcity sometimes. But a simple reminder can free you of that worry... and open the door to endless opportunities.
Today we live in a society in which most of the poor stay poor and the rich stay rich. The American Dream is dead, especially if you go to school and look for a job. Real financial education would offer a more ambitious person different avenues to become a millionaire, even in today’s economy.
The IRS wants people doing activities that spur growth and that provide jobs. Thus, they have many tax breaks for entrepreneurs and investors. On the other hand, the IRS has little value for people who make a lot of money but don’t create anything for the economy in terms of growth or jobs. The ultra-rich, on the other hand, are those whose wealth is often built on starting a company or investing professionally. These activities are rewarded by the IRS and so they have many more tax breaks.
