Excerpts From Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Yes, I’m sure a lot of us have seen this title at least once in our lifetime and a lot of people have read it and there are also some of us (myself included) that just read the book.

For those people that are yet to read it, these are a few things to note about been successful in life:

Overcoming the fear of losing money. I have never met anyone who really likes losing money. And in all my years, I have never met a rich person who has never lost money. But I have met a lot of poor people who have never lost a dime. . .investing, that is.

Fran Tarkenton, a one-time great NFL quarterback, says it still another way: “Winning means being unafraid to lose.” In my own life, I’ve noticed that winning usually follows losing. Before I finally learned to ride a bike, I first fell down many times. I’ve never met a golfer who has never lost a golf ball. I’ve never met people who have fallen in love who have never had their heart broken. And I’ve never met someone rich who has never lost money.

Failure Inspires winners and Failure defeats losers

When you say I can’t Afford it, ask yourself how can I afford it.

“Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.” 

“Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit.” 

― Robert T. KiyosakiRich Dad, Poor Dad

However, I advise that you read the book, there is more to learn.
