Robert Kiyosaki

Rich Dad Poor Dad

April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time… translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
20 Years… 20/20 Hindsight


In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful… and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.

    Interesting insights which are generally know. Big focus on increasing your own financial intelligence which, I agree, is not taught in schools. Important focus on the weak areas that might be stopping each individual from reaching their top level of intelligence (which applies for every aspect of our lives).

    Financial intelligence according to this book is gained through learning about finances, financial risk, investment, taxes and business law as early as possible, investing and taking risks, learning from top expert in each field (to save yourself time) and honing the skill to a higher level with each year of active experience.

    Some points stood out now that I am reading from a more European socialist environment and some ideas are definitely not as applicable but a great book to get you thinking about your own management of money and depending less on your job, state and pension for the financial freedom you want.
    Personally I took away two mains ideas:

    1) It is ok to fail and the wisest investors are those who have learned through their failures.
    2) Every month you must pay yourself first before you pay other (rent, food, taxes, etc) - was rather counterintuitive at first, but I understand it and agree with it after reading the book.

    "Invest first in education. In reality, the only real asset you have is your mind, the most powerful tool we have dominion over. "

    "Simply put, people who have low self-esteem and low tolerance for financial pressure can never be rich. As I have said, a lesson learned from my rich dad was that the world will push you around. The world pushes people around, not because other people are bullies, but because the individual lacks internal control and discipline. People who lack internal fortitude often become victims of those who have self-discipline."

Quotes

    gilang ridwanhas quotedlast year
    “Most people have a price. And they have a price because of human emotions named fear and greed. First, the fear of being without money motivates us to work hard, and then once we get that paycheck, greed or desire starts us thinking about all the wonderful things money can buy. The pattern is then set.”
    “What pattern?” I asked.
    “The pattern of get up, go to work, pay bills; get up, go to work, pay bills. People’s lives are forever controlled by two emotions: fear and greed. Offer them more money and they continue the cycle by increasing their spending. This is what I call the Rat Race.”

    #1: “The rich don’t work for money.”

    The lesson: The increases in income are going to entrepreneurs and investors, not to employees—not to the people who work for money.
