This book is a must to those who want to retire soon, those who want to have financial freedom, those who want to start a business and those who want to involve with real estate. I know, I bought this book long time ago but managed to finish it months after. Not that I'm lazy or a slow reader, but my schedule did not help. Killed all my times, but as long as I read them and understand all the content it does not matter how long I took to finish it. Remember the quote of the day I put on the right side of this blog?
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them" -Mark Twain-So, what are you waiting for? Go and get plethora of books to read. Ehem, not only love-books okay?
There are some good quotes in this book and those attract my attention are :
"The first and best victory is to conquer self" -Plato-
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
"Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun's rays do not burn until brought to focus" -Alexander Graham Bells
"You cannot learn to swim from a text book; You cannot learn business from a text book" -Robert T. Kiyosaki-
"If you are in business you need to learn how to sell" -Robert T. Kiyosaki-
In this book you will learn a lot of thing from Robert T. Kiyosaki and Donald J. Trump. It is based on both experience from the beginning until they are rich. This include what they learned from their father, mother, school, sport, business and philosophies. Comparing both authors I'd say Robert Kiyosaki still the best. I asked 3 of my friends who love finance and these are the comments about Trump :
Engineer : If he has no finance education and a dumb, even if he got billions of money the money will fly away. But he managed to use the money to make more money and become richer.
Doctor : I hate him!
Businessman : He is a liar. He started his business by selling rotten bonds. I just hate him!
No matter who he is, we just need to learn the good things from him instead of cursing him.
Same like Azizi Ali, both of them choose real estate as the best investment. I'm happy that I have started even though I'm still new and not yet succeed. Please do not ask me about the countable house that I own.
Do you know :
The defination of rich is you earn 1 million in a year and poor is you do not have 100k cash to invest.
This is a good way to remind me that I'm so poor and I must work hard! Work in this context does not mean I have to work overtime and so on but work here means I have to be creative and know how to make money from the salary I get every month.
"Laziness is the assasin of genius" -Robert T. Kiyosaki-
If you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad you should know about the quadrants. Actually I'm in the E and S and struggling hard to be in B and I. I know if I keep my mindset right, I will be in B and I soon.
There are two kinds of people in the world. There are those who seek security and those who seek freedom.
I need to get back on the track and stay focus. I'm abit out of the track and blinded with some problems I'm facing lately. Focus!
