Revealing Robert Kiyosaki Predictions For The Future

A book that was in the top 5 positions on the New York Times Bestseller list for 290 straight weeks, with 13 years of success and 28 million copies sold worldwide rarely needs any introduction and Robert Kiyosaki and his motivational book series “Rich Dad Poor Dad” can certainly attest to that. Why not consider advice on obtaining success from a man who was once named on a “30 Entrepreneurs We Most Admire” list? In his groundbreaking book, Kiyosaki touches upon the two most influential persons in his life. They are two men with two totally different attitudes regarding all aspects of finance and success. He describes the positive outlook of one father, and the negative outlook of the other. His “poor” dad had the attitude that “You can’t afford to do this,” and sadly, manifested a life of poverty. The other, his “rich” dad rose to wealth by teaching the proper mindset for success and instilling in him the mantra, “Let’s see how we can make this a possibility for you.” He learned valuable lessons about economic security, self-perception and the power of working for himself from both of his fathers – the rich dad and the poor dad-and what he learned has little to do with college degrees or extensive education. Quite simply, Kiyosaki tells us that opening our minds to the right questions can open our lives up to unlimited possibilities. Working for yourself will help you retire comfortably because when you believe and invest in yourself, you have more power and control over your future. Kiyosaki knows this from life experience and continues to document his path to success throughout his best-selling books, DVDs, games and seminars. Robert Kiyosaki explores the powerful life lessons he received from his “rich” dad. This was the father who taught him financial freedom and showed him first-hand how to make his money work for him, so that he didn’t have to work so hard for his money. This dad showed him step-by-step how to exponentially increase wealth by becoming a business owner, rather than working for someone else at a job (just over broke) that would never get him ahead financially. Kiyosaki demonstrates how you can do less work and make more money and how wealth is accessible to us all. He and mega-mogul Donald Trump are huge proponents of direct sales and network marketing opportunities as a great start to an entrepreneurial career and building a business that will be around long after we are gone – something we can pass on to our children for generations to come. When you make the decision to start your own...

Robert Kiyosaki, Who Is Going To Lose Their Employment? Will It Be You?

Who is going to lose their employment? What can you do to change it? Robert Kiyosaki shares what is happening on in the USA, Great Britain, and the world. To discover what you need do to put yourself in a good position, in the global economy, keep reading now Robert Kiyosaki The US Unemployment is currently reported to be 10% in the US. In actuality, it is much higher when you incorporate people that have been seeking a job for an extended period of time and are now hopeless. The main reason, Robert states, is because salaries in the USA, the UK, Europe, and Japan are substantial. Today, wages in the US are notably higher than emerging countries. Personally, residing in Mexico, for the last 4 years, I found out that the incomes do not compare to the USA. Think about it, why in the world would business leadership teams, attempting to slash costs and strengthen profitability, pay so much more for similar services they can outsource to people in emerging countries? Therein lays the main issue. What is amazing to see, these days, is that workers in the federal government, not state and local, are being pay higher salaries and receiving many more benefits than employees in the private realm. This makes economic matters worse. The United States needs to print more currency and raise taxes to afford these new high-paid people. (Remember the value of the US dollar is no longer attached to gold, so the Fed can print as much as they require.) That results in a swell in inflation. Robert Kiyosaki The UK Robert Kiyosaki was in the UK, this June, and talked about what he found out. He tells us that England’s government has declared war, in a manner of speaking, on the poor, parents, and the middle class by eliminating several of the social programs they have depended upon. England is taking these actions to cure their financial circumstances. They must, in order to prevent going bankrupt in the next 5 years. The United States ought to learn something from Great Britain. Unfortunately, they are increasing the danger of economic disaster if they keep on their present course. (Bankruptcy is projected to happen within ten years unless changes are made.) Yet, government officials are more focused on what takes place between elections instead of implementing the best course of action for the long run. What Can You Do To Change It? Here is what Robert Kiyosaki said “Rather than looking for a high paying job, I continually recommend starting your own business, educating yourself financially, buying silver rather than saving...

The “7 Steps” to The Life Cycle of Money!

I’m here to help you understand MONEY at its simplest form. Robert ‘Rich Dad’ Kiyosaki states over and over that the knowledge of money matters are the pinnacle supreme to financial wealth success. You can tell that he truly believes this in his writings. Like I said, I’m here to help you understand ‘ understand MONEY at its simplest form. These are The 7 Steps to the Life Cycle of Money (in any society or civilization proven throughout history!): 1. Free Market emerges In the beginning of any civilization or the re-beginning of a civilization such as after an economic collapse, one thing immediately emerges due to the talents and gifts given to everyone individually and specifically. One man may specialize in cutting down trees and building houses while another herds cattle and yet another grows vegetables in a garden. Then this is what happens: The timberman needs food and the gardener needs a house. This is where the need to trade naturally emerges And You Have ‘Free Trade’ .. This is also known as a barter system. 2. Free Market Money emerges Next, a Free Market Money emerges. This is a Need due to the fact that different quantities of different items have a ‘different value’. So for example, say the Gardener needs a house built but the Timberman doesn’t need that many vegetables. They will go to waste. Meanwhile, somewhere in the free market, a man found a gold mine and started mining for gold. This is his trade, and this is also a very difficult process. Due to its lack there of and difficulty to mine, free market money (gold and silver) emerges. This is now used as a ‘trading unit’ in free trade. 3. Government emerges Order slowly starts coming to the civilization and a government emerges to maintain that law & order. (note: they don’t provide any direct products or services to the market but to ‘regulate’) In not too long, the government starts regulating the market by placing rules in effect (i.e. times to trade, what can be traded, taxes, and more.) 4. Government Monopolizes The government decides to issue its own form of ‘money’ also known as fiat money or currency. Its important to realize that this is not gold or silver. This becomes items such as the $20 paper promise note in your pocket that probably didn’t cost anymore than $.01 cent to create. So, it leads to the very curious question: How much is your ‘money’ really worth? 5. Debase the Money Didn’t think it could get any worse or more manipulated? Well, this is the process in which leads...

Robert Kiyosaki – 60 Minutes To Getting Rich

Rich Dad’s 60 Minutes to Getting Rich! is an hour long and it’s broken into 6 brief segments that I will outline in the review below. The setting of the “personal seminar” DVD is in a rather small indoor room, with an audience of maybe 50 to 100 people. Robert Kiyosaki starts the program by giving a brief overview of Rich Dad Poor Dad, and what both his dads taught him, as well as their philosophies on money. Here are some of Robert Kiyosaki’s key points taken from Rich Dad’s 60 Minutes to Getting Rich! Part One Money Is an Idea Of course, if you know Robert Kiyosaki he usually talks about his poor dad’s idea that his house is an asset, and that his rich dad contests that that is one reason he is poor. One of the interesting things he says is that his rich dad told him to never say quote, “I can’t afford that.” Instead ask yourself, “How can I afford that?” Kiyosaki says there are three main points that he feels made a real big difference in his life. They were: 1. Money is an idea. The first way to get more money to change what you think. 2. Money Does not make you rich. Case in point, Robert’s poor dad made more money than his rich dad. 3. There are two kinds of money problems – not enough and too much money. And every person, company, and government has money problems. You need to ask yourself which of these two problems do you want? Money comes down to a choice: Every day he has to make a choice: Do I want to be rich or do I want to be poor? Part Two Your House Is Not an Asset He covers the cash flow quadrant (E, S, B, and I) — Employee, Self-employed or Specialist, Big business person and Investor. Employees want security and are mostly controlled by fear. Specialists don’t trust others, and their income is generally maxed out around $500,000 per year, because “time is money.” Big business and investors have essentially unlimited income potential. The way to get rich is via the B (big business) and I (investor) means. Part 3 Earn More… Work Less Kiyosaki talks about the importance of being able to read a financial statement, and the fact that tax laws are written for the rich, by the rich. Don’t work for money. Work for acquiring assets. Part Four Mind Your Own Business His Rich Dad told him that when he is an employee he’s minding somebody else’s business, but you want to be a business owner...

Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki recommends MLM Home Based Business

Robert Kiyosaki recommends MLM Home Based Business   Perhaps best known for his financial education products, Robert Kiyosaki wrote this latest book to praise the benefits of owning a network marketing business. Although Kiyosaki made his wealth traditionally, without the help of a network marketing business, he believes that these businesses are the wave of the future because they embody the new Information Age economy. He believes these businesses are a good way to begin your journey to become rich. Rich Dad’s the Business School: For People Who Like Helping People (Second Edition) Kiyosaki begins by reviewing the several ways that one may become rich. However, the path offered by his Rich Dad may be the most realistic and also hold the greatest profit potential. Rich Dad’s path to success is simple, "build a business first, reinvest in the business second, buy real estate third, and only then buy luxuries paid for by your assets" (98). Most people fail because they lack the discipline and perseverance needed to follow through with the plan. This behavior often characterizes those who lack emotional intelligence. A successful person possesses analytic, financial, and emotion intelligence. Such a person succeeds by understanding that success is accelerated through the process of "rejection and correction." Kiyosaki prefers network marketing businesses because there exists very few barriers to entry. Those who succeed in network marketing are able to combine their ability to sell and lead with their love for teaching. Kiyosaki writes, "Your job is to clone or duplicate someone just like you" (58). This is what ultimately determines the success of any network marketing business. When convincing others of the value of a starting a "personal franchise," more commonly known as a network marketing business, be sure to cover several important areas. First, refer to the cashflow quadrant to inspire motivation and provide direction. Second, emphasize wealth rather than income (a.k.a cashflow versus capital gains) by explaining the income statement and balance sheet and how acquiring assets, specifically businesses, is crucial to developing long-term passive revenue streams. Third, introduce Metcalf’s Law. Succeeding in a network marketing business demands the practical application of Metcalf’s Law, which states that a network’s economic value grows exponentially with the number of network users. Fourth, remind others of the fact that network marketing is the fastest growing business model in the world today. Big companies such as AOL Time Warner, Berkshire Hathaway, and Citibank all utilize network marketing. This comes as a surprise to many because network marketing businesses go largely unseen. Finally, emphasize the important of education. When searching for a network marketing business to join, educational opportunities should weigh...

Robert Kiyosaki: The biggest skill I have is making mistakes.

Robert Kiyosaki: The biggest skill I have is making mistakes.

~ Stephen Key ~ Robert Kiyosaki’s best-selling book, Rich Dad, Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money – That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!, has sat on my nightstand for a number of years. Within it, Kiyosaki advocates bold entrepreneurship and personal conviction as a means to achieving financial success and freedom; simply working as an employee will never generate significant wealth. Rich Dad, Poor Dad has been enormously successful. What advice does Kiyosaki have to give now? “There’s an assumption that once one has achieved a certain level of success, everything is easier. Not true! I face the same dilemmas and struggles today I did 30 years ago. It’s only the paradigm that has shifted. The way I perceive these problems is different; there’s a different sophistication level. But the lessons I learned as an entrepreneur working on a Velcro and nylon product decades ago are still relevant,” Kiyosaki explains. Before becoming a best-selling author, Kiyosaki was a product developer. He counts his inexperience and naivete at that time as a blessing. “If, at the time, I knew how much I did not know, I would have never started. I would have stayed in the Marine Corps, done my 20 years, and collected a paycheck. It’s a great thing I didn’t know,” he says with laughter. It’s the fearless acceptance of the mistakes he made (and, according to him, continues to make) as a result of that naivete that has allowed him to be so successful. “I blundered along then and I often feel like I’m blundering along now. What’s changed? I have smarter advisors,” he reveals. But as intelligent as they may be, Kiyosaki’s advisors aren’t responsible for his willingness to try and try again. “The biggest skill I have is making mistakes. I’m pretty much an expert now. In the corporate world, if you make mistakes, you’re fired. But in the entrepreneurial world, if you’re not making mistakes, you’re not learning. I enjoy making mistakes. As far as I can tell, every mistake is accompanied by a priceless lesson. I’ve built my life around these lessons.” While most people avoid fear rather than seek it, Kiyosaki adheres to a different principle. “If I don’t have butterflies in my stomach, there’s no sense working,” he says. Kiyosaki can explain his perspective on failure and fear in numerical terms. Simply put, the number of failures you experience is a reflection of the degree to which you’re putting yourself out there. And having the courage to put yourself in a position to fail will ultimately lead you to success. If you never try, you’re...
