Personal finance author and lecturer Robert T. Kiyosaki developed his unique economic perspective from two very different influences - his two fathers.
One father (Robert's real father) was a highly educated man but fiscally poor. The other father was the father of Robert's best friend - that Dad was an eighth-grade drop-out who became a self-made multi-millionaire. The lifelong monetary problems experienced by his poor dad pounded home the counterpoint communicated by his rich dad. Taking that message to heart,
Kiyosaki was able to retire at 47.
One said: "I can't afford it", the other "how can I afford it?". One is statement, the other question which forces you to think. If you say I can't afford it , your brain stops. If however you say/ask "How can I afford it" you force your brain to think ---- Robert Kiyosaki
I keep Hearing, 'I'd rather be happy then rich.' Why not be both ? ---- Robert Kiyosaki
My Poor Dad asked me what job I wanted when I grow up. My Rich Dad asked me what quadrant I wanted to be in. ---- Robert Kiyosaki
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 ---- Robert Kiyosaki
