Rich Dad, Poor Dad
by Robert T. Kiyosaki and Sharon L. Lechter
For a long time i want to write about this book, I’ve finish it for many time. this is a great book by Robert T.Kiyosaki. Rich dad, poor dad, this book tell the different about the way rich and poor think. The different is bold, the poor one think that he should live a safe way, school – get a job – pay a debt – die. The rich one don’t want go with the flow, he will take a risk and be the rich. Both of them have a same believe about education but don’t recommend the same way.
Both of them have a different vision about money. We don’t study abut money in school. In school we learn about professional skill, not about financial skill. This explain why person who is smart and have a rank in school have to struggle financially in their life. Their live stuck in “rat race”, a live that a person work hard for money but will never have enough money, because they spend all to pay a debt and buy a liabilities and nothing they invest as asset.
So many thing we can learn with this book, one of them is this question: “Why we should have financial skill?”. The answer is “because we can get more option in live”. A strong Financial base is start with a strong financial education. We must develop our financial intelligence. According to this book, a financial intelligence is formed from 4 technical skill, that is:
- Financial literacy
- Investment strategy
- Market. Supply and Demand
All of us have two wonderful gift: mind and time. We have choice how we use that gift. We have to choose an option. Just invest in your mind and learn how to get an assets and spend wisely and you will be rich in the future.
