To gain control of one’s financial future, the first step is to read books or attend courses of people who’ve been where you are and are currently at where you want to be. And one of those books that I’ve read and would advise you to check out is Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Making money is so important these days. In the country I come from, “…if you no get money, hide your face” – Small Doctor. For those who don’t grasp pidgin, not having money in our society will make you downgraded, left out and ignored. Sadly, Society doesn’t teach us anything about money, our Schools don’t teach us about money, our parents don’t teach us about money… even the Church doesn’t teach us about money. So, how can one gain knowledge about the workings of money. Read on… I’ll be taking three excerpts from Rich Dad Poor Dad to explain how money works: Exercise your mind by believing you have what it takes to make money. Simply put, have an abundance mindset. In Robert’s interactions with both of his dads, one would often say “I can’t afford it” and another would say “How can I afford it?” Money comes to those who can attract it and the way to do that is by opening your mind to possibilities. Be interested in money: As funny as it may sound, not a lot of people are interested in making money despite the fact they need it. I’ll come again but before I do, here’s an example. I know a guy who was in a tough spot. Money was always an issue for him but anytime I bring a topic or business idea to him, he ALWAYS seems to bring up one idea or the other that it won’t work. In his head, he wanted to be fed like a baby without being interested with the process. I’ll repeat, not a lot of people are interested in making money despite the fact they need it. Know the difference between an asset and liability. Most people confuse both terms and that’s why money seems to be an issue. An asset is something that puts money in your pocket, while a liability is something that takes money out of your pocket. Knowing this basic fundamental would help you a lot in understanding Money.
