The Big Idea of Rich Dad, Poor Dad
FINANCIAL LITERACY = FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE
A true tale of two dads— one a highly educated professor, the other, an eighth grade dropout. Educated dad left his family with nothing, except maybe some unpaid bills. The dropout later became one of Hawaii’s richest men and left his son an empire. One dad would say, “I can’t afford it” while the other, asked, “How can I afford it?”
Rich dad teaches two boys priceless lessons on money, by making them learn through experience. The most important lesson of all is How to Use Your Mind and Time to create personal wealth. Free yourself from the proverbial “rat race”. Learn to spot opportunities, create solutions and “mind your own business”. Learn to make money work for you, and not be its slave.
Rich Dad’s Words of Wisdom:
You are what you Think.
A job is a short-term solution to a long-term problem.
A highly paid slave is still a slave.
Why climb the corporate ladder when you can own the ladder?
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost, from ‘The Road Not Taken’
