book summary of “ Rich Dad Poor Dad ” by Robert Kiyosaki

  • The book proves that you do not need to earn a lot of money to get rich.
  • The rich behave in such a way that money works for them, not them for money.
  • It does not matter how much money you earn, but how much money you save.
  • The rich are amassing wealth, and the poor are amassing commitments and installments that they think are wealth.
  • Financial talent is something you can save more money with, how to keep it longer, and how to prevent others from taking it away from you.
  • The most powerful asset of all of us is our mind.
  • Money comes and goes, yet if you learn how to work with money, you can succeed.
  • People’s financial lives are always affected by two factors: fear and greed. Fear of empty pockets forces people to work hard, and monthly paychecks make them look for more work with more greed. They get used to waking up early in the morning, going to work, paying their bills, earning more money, paying more bills, and still going through this process in life.
  • Many people claim that they have no interest in money, while they work eight hours a day to earn it.
  • You are only poor when you give up. Many people actually do nothing to get rich; they are always dreaming!
  • Lack of money is the root of all evil; The love of money is the root of all evil.
  • Workers work hard enough not to be fired, and instead employers only pay enough to keep workers.
  • Do not lie to yourself by thinking that a job can make you safe.
  • You need to know the difference between an asset and a debt and buy an asset.
  • More money rarely solves people’s financial problems.
  • A person can be very educated and at the same time very illiterate.
  • Wealth is the ability of individuals to live without income. If you want to know how rich you are, you have to answer the question, how many days can you survive if you have no income today?
  • Robert Kiyosaki believes that work that requires his physical presence is not a business; rather, it is his job that is being lost.
  • The best thing about money is that it has the ability to work tirelessly 24 hours a day and generate income.
  • Kiyosaki’s wealthy father did not see Robin Hood as a hero, but as a swindler.
  • Gold is everywhere, but most people are not trained to see it.
