Read This If You Want To Get Rich!
How To Get Rich!
So if you want to get rich then there is one thing that you must read (well there are probably a lot of things but really I think you much read this one thing at least). I'm not (yet) rich but I just had some huge lightbulb moments when I read this that I couldn't fail to pass it on. I know there are lots of get rich quick schemes out there but this is more of a philosophy on how to get rich that makes so much sense that you wonder why you didn't think of it before (well maybe you did but I certainly didn't!). Anyway, what I am talking about is a book that has been around for a while but will really make you think of the KEY reason of why you are not getting rich and the things you have to implement in order to get rich (not necessarily quickly).
Maybe you have already read this book in which case you will know what I am talking about - and if you have not implemented what it says then maybe you need to read it again to start on your road to getting rich.
An Inspirational Book
So what I am advising you to read here is a book called 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lecter. This really is a book that will make you think and realise what you need to do to get rich.
The book tells the story of how Robert Kiyosaki was advised by his friend Mike's Dad (rich Dad) on how to get rich and how to think in order to be rich. The teaching from 'Rich Dad' started at an early age and was offset by the advice of 'Poor Dad' who was well educated. Although they both offered good advice generally there were differences in their thinking that made the advice offered by Rich Dad more appropriate to getting on the road to riches.
The Obvious Way To Get Rich
So I will cut to the chase and tell you the obvious point (or one or two of the most salient points anyway as there is a lot to absorb) to how to get rich and why you are not rich at the moment.
The point is that not many people are going to get rich by working for a living. Maybe you have already figured this out - for most people even if you work hard and get promotions etc then you are not going to be what you class as 'rich'. You might be a bit better off but to actually get a rich lifestyle in the way that we want it, it's not going to happen through employment.
So the main point that the book makes (and I can't really cover all the good points here so I really recommend that you read it) is that you need to make money work for you. You need to have assets that produce income rather than liabilities that drain any money you have. And you have to realise the diffrerence between the two things or you really won't be getting rich.
So use what you have (and it doesn't have to be much - in fact that book tells you how you can make money when you have none to start with) and use that to buy assets that will provide you with an income.
I have already started to consider which ways I can implement the techniques and am working on my first acquisition along the lines of what is recommend by Robert in the book. I would seriously recommend you get this book if you want to make some money and get out of the rat race.
