“The Road Not Taken”

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Ten took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear

Tough as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the frst for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads onto way,

doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence;

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one lessf traveled by,

And that has made all the diference.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Key takeaways:

  • The rich don’t work hard for money, their money works hard for them – you can’t expect to get rich just by holding a job.
  • Don’t get stuck on the ‘rat race’ – increased income that leads to increased consumption of something that becomes a liability instead of an asset, don’t let money control you.
  • Keep your job and build your asset column; keep your expenses low, reduce liabilities and buy assets.
  • Financial education is probably the most important step. Once people become financially educated, they still face some obstacles to become rich. In particular: fear, cynicism, laziness, bad habits, arrogance.
  • There is always risk, learn to manage it instead of avoiding it.
  • Master a formula and learn quickly. Master self-discipline.
  • Be an Indian giver: ask yourself how quickly you get your money back (ROI + intangibles)
Screw You robert kiyosaki

Thank you for having me believe that education is bs, and that anyone and everyone can just create passive residual income out they’re ass. You showed me the Pandora's box of residual income and network marketing bs ten years ago that has turned me into a lazy-ass unmotivated slacker who doesn't want to get a job because I believed that some how, some way that Ill be able to make a living that way being my own boss, working for myself without already having to be rich to start.  If i had never opened that box id probably have finished my education and have my masters by now with a well paying job and home that i own, and a nice investment portfolio. Instead i swore off working for other people, making them money and not me, which hasn't worked out to well because I still am. I believed that I would make tons of money with the internet like all those other people. And I’m sure there are people out there that have done this and made it happen for them. But it took me this long to realize that I suck at being self-motivated and a self starter, working within some kind of self-created structure. For all the people that have done the stuff that is in his books then more power to you that's an awesome accomplishment, and for the people that are trying to do that stuff, more power to you. I wish you the best of luck in it….. I feel better already.

How Do You See Yourself?

This question is the most important question you can ask yourself. It will decide:
- the action you take
- the action you avoid
- the risks you take
-who you choose as a life partner
-how much money you will earn and spend

Do you see yourself as capable, excellent, amazing, talented, full of gifts? Do you see yourself as a fast learner, great to be around, a high earner? 

Have past experiences shaped how you see yourself? Comments from other people? If so, you have given experiences and people your power and your future is in their hands.

Take back your power.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Big K.R.I.T.
Rich Dad, Poor Dad

The more you walk with God, the harder it is to scrape your knee
I remember when I fell from my first bike
There were no “are you okays” and rarely “are you alrights”
Just dirt in my pockets, handful of gravel
That’s when I realized that getting up is only half the battle
The fear of falling off will haunt me well into my teens
The moment that the world took a shit upon my dreams

In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.
—  Robert Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Texas and Texans

From the book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’

My rich dad (on the other hand) recommended that I think like a Texan, he used to say, that he liked Texas and Texans. In Texas everything is bigger, when Texans win, they win big; and when they lose it’s spectacular….

They like losing - I asked?

That’s not what I’m saying, nobody likes losing - he replied; Show me a happy loser and I’ll show you “A LOSER”… said Rich Dad.

It’s the Texan’s attitude towards •Risk, •Reward and •Failure I’m talking about; it’s how they handle life, they live it big, not like most of the people around here (in Hawaii - and every other place around the globe), living like roaches when it comes to money (ouch), terrified that someone will shine a light on them, and whimpering when the grocery clerk short-changes them a quarter.

What I like best is the Texas attitude, they’re proud when they win, and they brag when they lose.

Texans have a saying, if you’re going to go broke, go big! You don’t want admit that you went broke over a duplex…

(– In memory of a great friend - I love dearly - from Texas, I lost their friendship, and I mourn it every freaking day 😭😭😭 ❤❤❤ 💘💘💘 💔💔💔)
