Rich Dad Poor Dad - by Robert Kiyosaki

In Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki tells the story of two of the most important influences in his life, his poor dad and his rich dad. He shares the lessons he learnt from watching his poor dad work his way up the corporate ladder, become a very distinguished official and yet end up broke and desperate in his later years.

His rich dad, on the other hand, was a man that always worked for himself and saw the value in being diligent in business. From his small beginnings, he died a very wealthy man and left a huge inheritance for his children. Along the way he taught Robert Kiyosaki some extremely valuable lessons on “what the rich teach their kids about money – that the poor and middle class do not.”

Rich Dad Poor Dad is great and when I read it I went ahead to read other books in the Rich Dad series. It is written in a very simple style that is easy to understand without having to have a dictionary handy, something I really appreciate in a book.

It offers some insights into the habits ad attitudes that keep people poor and living the “rat race” all their lives. The rat race is imply what more than 90% of the world’s population is living. It is hand to mouth, month by month kind of living. It is a vicious cycle that has many trapped into “making a living” Rather than living life and enjoying it.

Actually, its advice and insight is so easy to grasp and appreciate that you will, like me when I first read it, probably want to give yourself a hard kick in the behind. I thought: “why has this never occurred to me? It makes so much sense and seems so obvious.” That’s just the truth of life – most things we need to succeed are right under our noses.

Quick Quote:

"But the truth is, you let life push you into submission. Deep down you were terrified of taking risks. You really wanted to win, but the fear of losing was greater than the excitement of winning. Deep inside, you and only you will know you didn't go for it. You chose to play it safe."
