Guru Speaks…

Robert Kiyosaki explains why many commonly held truths about managing money are obsolete. In their place, he offers financial solutions anyone can follow.

“Investing,” he points out, “is not risky, but following bad investment advice is.

* Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow

* The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.

* The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time

* Academic qualifications are important and so is financial education. They’re both important and schools are forgetting one of them.

* The poor, the unsuccessful, the unhappy, the unhealthy are the ones who use the word tomorrow the most

* I have a problem with too much money. I can’t reinvest it fast enough, and because I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes, the rich do get richer.

* Do today what you want for your tomorrows

* Tomorrows only exist in the minds of dreamers and losers

* The most life-destroying word of all is the word tomorrow

* A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That’s where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It’s having backbone.

* Money is kind of a base subject. Like water, food, air and housing, it affects everything, yet for some reason the world of academics thinks it’s a subject below their social standing

* We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for them.
