The Differences Betweeen the Wealthy and Everyone Else
I recently received an e-mail from a young lady who had doubts about the principles of wealth found in "Rich Dad, Poor Dad". She mentioned a couple of past failed investments, and wanted to know what I thought about investing and financial freedom - whether it was just a myth, or whether it could be acquired. I thought I'd share it here for the benefit of those who have struggled with investing, or perhaps from ventures that didn't quite pan out. Here's what I wrote back to her:
I want to address your point below - because I think you make a very interesting point about money. I do believe that most people have a great opportunity to put Rich Dad's principles into practice to create wealth for themselves. You said "the rich get richer"...but remember, many who are rich did not start that way (many who have a large inheritance don't stay rich for long). In fact, they started very poor, with little to no money, and worked their way to freedom. HERE ARE THE DIFFERENCES between those who achieve financial freedom and those who don't:
1) They have different beliefs about money.
2) Those who become financially free never, ever give up - even after failing numerous times.
3) Those who become wealthy never stop learning.
I hope this helps - I'd like your opinions on what I've shared -
To your future.
I'm still waiting to hear back from her - in the meantime, I hope this helps you.
