You have sufficient money? What would you do if you had enough? What is enough anyway? Do you know how to be a steward of your resources?
How do you think about money? Is money your friend? Or do money and evil lurk around every corner (coming from the belief that money is the root of all evil)? This article is about the belief systems that hold us back, keep us poor and debt controlled.
Money is just energy. As humans, we have the right and responsibility to learn how to use money for our benefit and that of others. You cannot be a good steward if you are afraid of what you are a steward of.
In “Rich Dad Poor Dad” Robert T Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter, CPAs explore what it’s like to work with money from the point of view of being rich and the rest of us. That is the beauty of this book. Twenty percent of the population generates eighty percent of the wealth. That’s the 80/20 rule. If you are in the 80% generating 20% of the wealth, you may have judgments about that other group. But have you walked in their shoes?
Kiyosaki tells his story of growing up in a home with “regular” money. Most of us go to school, get educated, get a job, earn money, and pay taxes and bills. Hopefully we’ll save some money for the kids’ college and retirement. The masses: some earn and have a little money, some barely survive, and many rely on government rights to get them to the grave.
Kiyosaki also tells about his friend’s father who was “rich”. He knew how to work with money, play with concepts of money, be with money, and make money work for him. Kiyosaki had the best of both worlds. He could see where life would take him if he thought he was afraid of money.
He thing to learn about money. This book is about his journey. It is full of stories about how he learned to make money, as well as stories in which he helped others learn about money. Kiyosaki also provides his 10-point plan to get started and stay on track.
