Rich

“So much of what makes us wealthy is free.  The secret to wealth is gratitude.  It’s not just what we achieve or accomplish.  It’s what we appreciate.  It’s not just the adventure of a cruise.  It’s what we take the time to enjoy.  You can find an adventure and joy in those you love, in the dancing eyes of your children, or the joyous faces fo those you love.  There are jackpots everywhere if you wake up to the beauty of your life today.  So don’t vow to someday get beyond scarcity; start beyond it.  Realize how lucky you are and all the wealth you possess in love, joy, opportunities, health, friends, and family.  Don’t get rich. Start rich.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game

“If you want to be rich, start rich.  What can you be grateful for today?  Who can you be grateful for today?  Could you even be grateful for some of the problems and the pain that you’ve been through in your life?  What if you took on the new belief that everything in life happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves you?  What if you believed in your heart of hearts that life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you?  That every step along the way is helping strengthen you so that you can become more, enjoy more, and give more.  If you’ll start from that place, money won’t be the source of your pleasure and your pain.  Making money will just be a fun journey of mastery, and wealth a great vehicle to achieve what matters most in life.” ~ Tony Robbins, Money: Master the Game

“Is it true that money cannot buy happiness? Yes, it is true.  Money cannot buy happiness—but it makes misery more comfortable.  That’s why I am not against money—I am all for it.  It is better to be comfortably miserable than uncomfortably miserable.  I have lived in poverty and I have lived in richness, and believe me: Richness is far better than poverty.  I want you to be rich in every possible way—material, psychological, spiritual.  I want you to live the richest life that has ever been lived on the earth.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

“Have you ever seen a bird poor?  Animals in the forest—nobody is poor, nobody is rich.  In fact, you don’t even see fat birds and thin birds.  All the crows are almost identical; you cannot even recognize which is which.  Why?  They enjoy; they don’t hoard.  Even to become fat means you are hoarding inside the body—that is the indication of a miserly mind.  Misers become constipated; they cannot even throw out their waste.  They hoard, they control even defecation, they go on hoarding even rubbish.  Hoarding is a habit.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

10 Lessons Learned From ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ by Robert Kiyosaki

10 Lessons Learned From 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki

I think more than anything else this book served as a firm reminder that the more time you spend on your education and, in this case, your financial education, the more financially independent you’ll be able to be.  In other words, you become what you study.

One of the major topics in the book is that too many people get stuck in a rat race where they go to school to find a safe, reliable job, with a lot of benefits and promotional structure, take that type of job, save their money little by little, pay their bills and expenses first, and then spend what they have left over last, only to repeat the same cycle for the rest of their working lives… ultimately never allowing them to get ahead or become financially independent.

“I am concerned that too many people are focused too much on money and not on their greatest wealth, which is their education. If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad Poor Dad
