MORE IDEAS FROM Rich Dad, Poor Dad

When my rich dad said, “The rich don’t work for money. They have their money work for them,” he was talking about passive income and portfolio income.

Passive income, in most cases, is income derived from real estate investments. Portfolio income is income derived from paper assets such as stocks and bonds.

Portfolio income is the income that makes Bill Gates the richest man in the world, not earned income.

Rich dad used to say, “The key to becoming wealthy is the ability to convert earned income into passive income or portfolio income as quickly as possible.”

He would say,Taxes are highest on earned income. Th e least-taxed income is passive income. That is another reason why you want your money working hard for you. Th e government taxes the income you work hard for more than the income your money works hard for.”

Once a dollar goes into assets, never let it come out.

Think of it this way: Once a dollar goes into your asset column, it becomes your employee. The best thing about money is that it works 24 hours a day and can work for generations.

Start early. Buy a book. Go to a seminar. Practice. Start small. I turned $5,000 cash into a one-million-dollar asset producing $5,000 a month cash flow in less than six years. But I started learning as a kid. I encourage you to learn, because it’s not that hard. In fact, it’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

In the stock market, I often hear people say, “I don’t want to lose money.” Well, what makes them think I or anyone else likes losing money? They don’t make money because they choose to not lose money.

Instead of analyzing, they close their minds to another powerful investment vehicle, the stock market.

1. Don’t get into large debt positions that you have to pay for. Keep your expenses low. Build up assets first. Then buy the big house or nice car. Being stuck in the Rat Race is not intelligent.

2. When you come up short, let the pressure build and don’t dip into your savings or investments. Use the pressure to inspire your financial genius to come up with new ways of making more money, and then pay your bills. You will have increased your ability to make more money as well as your financial intelligence.

We play the “What if?” game. “What if the economy crashes right after I invest?” Or we have friends or loved ones who will remind us of our shortcomings. They often say, “If it’s such a good idea, how come someone else hasn’t done it?”

These words of doubt often get loud.

Whenever you feel short or in need of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love, or friendship.

Often just the process of thinking of what I want, and how I could give that to someone else, breaks free a torrent of bounty.

We all have tremendous potential, and we all are blessed. Yet the one thing that holds us back is some degree of self-doubt. It is not so much the lack of technical information that holds us back, but more the lack of self-confidence.

Don’t listen to poor or frightened people. I have such friends, they are the Chicken Littles of life. To them, when it comes to money, especially investments, it’s always, “The sky is falling! They can always tell you why something won’t work.

But people who blindly accept doom-and-gloom information are also Chicken Littles.

Before success comes in any man's life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. 

When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to QUIT. That is exactly what the majority of men do.

When failures come along the way, always know that you're close to success🔥

People's lives are forever controlled by two emotions - fear and greed. While fulfilling our greed we often opt for a job to earn plenty of money, which is eventually a short term solution to a long term problem. 

It's just like the picture of a donkey dragging a cart with its owner dangling a carrot just in front of its nose. The donkey's owner may be going where he wants to, but the donkey is chasing an ILLUSION. Tomorrow there'll only be another carrot for the donkey.
