Learn or Lose
The author of many successful and actually helpful financial books is one of the most famous and influential mentors in the area personal budgeting, passive income and financial education in general. The author of the famous “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” has written a lot of bestsellers where he describes his attitude towards money. He managed to completely change the way we perceive money. RK is the best mentor in the topic of achieving wealth mainly because he can connect with his audience through a very smart simplification of his ideas. Let’s take a look at his most inspiring quotes that will make you think a lot…
- “In the real world, the smartest people are people who make mistakes and learn. In school, the smartest people don’t make mistakes.”
The mistake has been dogmatized. We’ve been learning the whole life that mistakes are bad and we should avoid them. That’s fine, at least until you realize that you can’t actually learn if you don’t make mistakes or if you don’t observe the mistakes of others. If you make a mistake you can learn from that or you can make another one. By repeating the process you’re more likely to learn. It’s as simple as that.
- “It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power!”
What you say is obviously important, but not as much as the things you truly believe. You are the person you believe you are. The way you act is often very different from the way you perceive yourself. You should be willing to control your thoughts as much as possible. Controlling your thoughts is controlling yourself. Speak to yourself positively in an affirmative way. That means you need to tell yourself you are healthy, rich and successful because you want to be that person. You need to have that mindset in order to get there.
- “Don’t be addicted to money. Work to learn. don’t work for money. Work for knowledge.”
If you work for money, you will fail. The same principle works in school. Going for grades is what most people do. That is not the way you are supposed to work. Your aim should be to learn new things, to work on your skills and to get farther than you are. Don’t do it just for some financial or status goals, do it for yourself.
- “The most successful people in life are the ones who ask questions. They’re always learning. They’re always growing. They’re always pushing.”
The most successful individuals are often obsessed in some way. They ask a lot, do strange things, crave to learn and most importantly, they are very passionate about what they do. That’s what differentiates the genius from the masses. The positive attitude and the passion are the main accelerators of their swift run to excellence.
- “It’s more important to grow your income than cut your expenses. It’s more important to grow your spirit that cut your dreams.”
If your dreams don’t seem crazy to you, you’re doing something wrong. Even though they seem unreal now, it shouldn’t prevent you from trying hard. All you need to know is your direction. Enjoy the process of growing and learn about yourself as much as you can. Don’t be cheap to make your life easier. Aim high and harvest more!
- “The trouble with school is they give you the answer, then they give you the exam. That’s not life.”
That is probably the biggest problem of our schooling system. We are used to the exam preparation and then the exam coming. However, in real life, there is no exam preparation. We have to be constantly prepared for what’s coming and never stop learning.
- “It’s easier to stand on the sidelines, criticize, and say why you shouldn’t do something. The sidelines are crowded. Get in the game.”
Get yourself in the game! Stop procrastinating and start living. It’s simple. Make the first step and never let your fear stop you from achieving your goals. Leave the comfort of your seat and get into the field. Fight for it and you’ll never regret it.
- “Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.”
Have you ever been in this situation before? You were really afraid of something and it actually happened in the same way you were scared it would? Yes, that’s the law of attraction a.k.a. the Murphy’s laws. What you think about has an immense power. You attract what you think about. It’s crazy, but it works. Look forward to your victories and move on from your fear of failures.
- “The most life-destroying word of all is the word tomorrow.”
Stop procrastinating. Stop avoiding the really important stuff and do some work you have to do. Set yourself a particular time and do it. Don’t neglect your life. Don’t neglect yourself.
- “The more a person seeks security, the more that person gives up control over his life.”
Your life is in your hands. However, if you are scared of your own responsibility the chances are that you feel better when you’re not in charge of the decision. Here comes the problem. People are becoming very passive. The vast majority of us wants stability and security. Everyone has got plenty of insurance bills just because they should have them in order to prevent the worse case scenario. Many people are too concerned about preventing the negative things that they don’t have the time to focus on what they actually want. And that is a huge problem!
Building a mindset of an entrepreneur is really helpful. The moment you start taking risks and take responsibility for yourself is the moment you actually start living. You’ll become way more independent and much stronger in terms of mental and financial wealth.
- “Money is really just an idea.”
