Learn or Lose

Robert Kiyosaki

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.”

Become the boss of your life with Timothy Ferris

Meet a superman of this world. He is an amazing author, inspiring philosopher, broadly respected personal mentor for a lot of lifelong learners, perhaps the best meta-learner of all times, successful businessman, great public speaker and maybe most importantly – a very healthy guy.These are the top quotes of his, at least according to our humble view. If you know about some of his quotes that are even more magical, please, feel free to share it with us and our beautiful and growing community!

Now let’s take a look at his amazing ideas…

“People will choose unhappiness over uncertainty.”

Do you really want to be “save” and sacrifice your happiness by taking a risk and having the chance and hope to achieve something you actually dream of? Safe jobs are not safe for you anymore. Standing still and waiting for a miracle is the biggest risk you can take. Sounds crazy, but it is all about your perspective. The angle of your perception is immensely powerful. Try to adjust your mindset and do something you perceive as risky while still moving somewhere…

“You are the average of the five people you associate with most, so do not underestimate the effects of your pessimistic, unambitious, or disorganized friends. If someone isn’t making you stronger, they’re making you weaker.”

Your environment affects you more than you think. It turns out that we do naturally behave like the people we do surround ourselves with. Be very careful about letting people get close to you. You should be able to analyse which of your friends are toxic for you. Those who are still complaining, negatively oriented and are not willing to grow, are basically undermining your healthy mentality to be better… Don’t let them influence you in this way. Find your own mentors to show you the right way, experts that are already where you want to be and peers that will be next to you on your path sharing the same values and goals.

“If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think.”

This is so true. The fact is that we naturally tend to underestimate ourselves. Perhaps owing to social media, the place where everyone shares onyly their successes and we are not able to imagine the path that led to it. We do very often see just the final result and that is making us less confident. It often seems like the success should come naturally without any extra work. And that’s such a toxic mindset and total crap. You’ve got a huge potential, compare yourself only to yourself and try to become the best version of yourself you can. That is the best goal you can set for yourself. You’ll gain an immense amount of confidence owing to the fact that you’ll realize you are the one in charge of your own progress. You are 100% able to grow every day. It’s up to you, my friend.

“To enjoy life, you don’t need fancy nonsense, but you do need to control your time and realize that most things just aren’t as serious as you make them out to be.”

That is absolutely true. Try to think of your real needs. You will realize what is actually important and what is not, sooner or later. Guess what, a vast majority of things you think is serious has actually nothing to do with the happiness you want to feel. The happiness comes from the inside, not the outside. Possessing things won’t make you happy in the long run. Instead, try to focus on your relationships, invest in yourself and take risks. Love your days, that is all you’ve got.

“Focus on being productive instead of being busy.”

Everyone can be busy today. And it seems to me that everyone kind of wants to be busy. Everybody wants to feel busy while it looks like a hard working process. It must be good, right? NO, absolutely not. Don’t overwhelm yourself with the “work”. Try to become genuinely productive instead. Productivity does not necessarily mean  doing more in less time. Productivity is rather doing precisely just the things you have to do in order to succeed in the shortest period of time possible. If you can work two hours a day and do at least the same amount of work as somebody else does in 8 hours, then the real fun begins. Don’t take things as they are just because it works like that. Don’t try to follow the masses, otherwise, you’ll end up where they are.

“Information is useless if it is not applied to something important or if you will forget it before you have a chance to apply it.”

The process of learning is an active process. Reading something not using it at all won’t make you learn something. Try to apply whatever you acknowledge, otherwise, you waste your precious time. You don’t want to waste your time, do you?

“$1,000,000 in the bank isn’t the fantasy. The fantasy is the lifestyle of complete freedom it supposedly allows.”

The money is nice, however, if you still chase more, you will never become happy. Escape your rat race as soon as possible. According to Tim, the new rich people aren’t the ones who work all day long to secure themselves unbelievably huge amounts of cash on their accounts. The new rich can be anyone who is willing to adjust his mindset and the most importantly to redesign his values. The new rich people prefer personal freedom instead of money. The time you’ve got, the independence in the place from which you work or live and the opportunity to make little retirements throughout your life, those are the real measurements of your wealth. Why would you want to work until 65 hoping to discover the world one day?

Screen Shot 2019-01-25 at 10.19.43 AM.png

“By working only when you are most effective, life is both more productive and more enjoyable. It’s the perfect example of having your cake and eating it, too.”

Your ultimate goal in life should be your lifestyle. Because if you want to live happily, you have to adjust your lifestyle in order to be happy. You can be happy every single day, there is no real reason for an opposite. It’s only up to you, my friend. Maybe your work doesn’t exist yet, create it and love what you do. Love your life and enjoy your time. You don’t have to become a corporate slave and work for someone else’s dreams.

“It’s lonely at the top. Ninety-nine percent of people in the world are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for the mediocre. The level of competition is thus fiercest for ‘realistic’ goals, paradoxically making them the most time and energy-consuming.”

Imagine your goals as a huge mountain, say Mount Everest. It’s really high, you are at the start of a very long journey and probably are going to be alone after taking a couple of bigger steps. That’s the deal of the champions. There’s never a traffic jam on the extra mile, be aware of that. You can become an exception quite easily. The question is, are you willing to sacrifice something?

“Pareto’s Law can be summarized as follows: 80% of the outputs result from 20% of the inputs.”

We’ve got a great post about this one. The rule 80/20 is possible to apply anywhere, so the versatility of this statement is unbelievable. Take advantage from knowing that by adjusting what you do according to the scheme. You’ll gain huge power! 

Which quotes do you think are the best? Who would you love to be reading about the next time?

Winston Churchil

The former British prime minister has become, owing to his challenging brave and never surrendering attitude, one of the most popular politicians of the whole history. He managed to get the occupied and by war hard proved nation to hold together. Even in the toughest times, he was very persuasive that he was going for a win no matter how bad the circumstances actually were. In 2002, Winston Churchill was named the Greatest Briton of All Time in a poll conducted by the BBC. 

“If you’re going through hell, keep going.

“Do you have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

Don’t feel bad for having some haters. Being criticized is actually a sign of some success. If you do anything you will surely have your own critics. It doesn’t actually matter what you do, so feel free to make your own decisions. Otherwise, if you don’t want to be criticised, try staying at home, barricade yourself.

“To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often.”

We all need to change ourselves in order to get better at anything. Because change means progress. If you don’t change yourself how do you want the others to change? How do you want to change the world if you don’t adjust your mindset and alter your own attitude, which is much easier, by the way.


“I never ‘worry’ about action, but only about inaction.”


Don’t be too afraid of changing something. Challenge yourself by stepping out of your comfort zone! That is the only way to move a bit towards becoming a better and stronger person in every single way possible. Don’t hesitate to make that move.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”


If you never give up, if you don’t accept that you’ve lost it, you will never become a loser. It’s all about the time! You have to persist on your way and never give it up. You never know when the situation changes. Just be prepared that the odds can be dramatically changed from the worst to the best. Because that’s what life does to the individuals who are strong enough to keep the positive mindset and hard working mentality even despite the circumstances.


“You will never get to the end of the journey if you stop to shy a stone at every dog that barks.”


Remember that at any point in your life when you will try to get out of your comfort zone, you will definitely feel awkward. And that’s completely natural. Don’t try to fight against it. Accepting that by getting yourself into the situations you’ve never been in is crucial for your personal growth. Hunt them in order to not be hunted.


“The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.”


That’s probably the most inspirational quote. Especially in terms of its huge timelessness. This quote is basically tailored for today and the 21st century. Our new age is formed by this principle. Read that at least ten times until it sticks in your head. This is huge!


“You never can tell whether bad luck may not, after all, turn out to be good luck.”


Anything that happens to you is not good neither bad. All the conditions are objectively neutral. You can choose how you perceive them. That’s your ultimate power! I’ve been in many bad looking situations and after I’ve changed my attitude towards them, the things started to get better almost immediately. After all, I guess you all have the times when you thought you’ve made a huge mistake and then the situation completely turned upside down. That’s the thing WC has spoken about.


“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”


Understanding this is very crucial to developing a truly challenging mindset. The growth mindset you want is based on the perception of the obstacle as the opportunity. If you’re afraid of doing something, try to beat that feeling by doing the same thing! You’ll realize sooner or later that the fear is trying to signalize you the opportunities to get better by overcoming your doubts. And I bet you want to get better then you were yesterday. Honestly, the biggest aim of mine is to become the best version of myself. That is my own path and I will never stop on my journey. It has no end, that’s what I love about it.

“One always measures friendships by how they show up in bad weather.”


You should know that all the people who you like are not the same when found in a crisis. After struggling and undergoing through the tough life exams you will realize who your friends are and possibly who they are not. Remember that everyone is kind when life is easy.


“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”


You have to continue. That’s the only and ultimate way to get yourself far and to achieve what you have to achieve. Your goals may be unlimited, but you have to work hard for them and persist in your way no matter how long the next step will take.

Build true wealth with Henry Ford

Henry Ford was one of the biggest entrepreneurs ever. In my view, HF is the most underrated businessman in the public eyes. He completely revolutionized the way of public transportation. The founder of the Ford Motor Company played probably the biggest role in terms of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. He successfully managed to manufacture a unique type of the car that was affordable enough for the masses, which was frankly in his times a timeless invention. Let’s take a look at his philosophy, mindset and wisdom from which we can learn.


Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 11.20.22 AM.png


“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason so few engage in it.”



HF had been very bright during his lifetime. He acknowledged that the vast majority of people can’t or simply don’t want to use their brains in order to solve any of their problems. He understands the importance of deep thinking and encourages people to become proactive in terms of building a thoughtful mindset./BTWProactivityIsOurPreviousPost/



“You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.”



This quote is very motivational. HF basically says that your plans are just thoughts in your head and nobody cares about your thoughts unless you start realizing them. Don’t be contemplating all the time whether the direction of your next steps is right. Just walk and you’ll get to the point somehow. You need to move in order to live successfully.



“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.”



HF encourages us to be proactive in terms of learning new things. You obviously can’t learn anything from repeating the same things or thinking the same way every single day. You should realize the potential you have. However, your potential is not going to reach its maximum if you don’t do anything for your goals. What teaches you the most? Your own mistakes.

Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 11.21.07 AM


“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.



A growth mindset is a necessary tool in the life of all the lifelong students. You should want to be one of them. Why? If you stop learning, you stop progressing. Especially these days you just can’t afford to stagnate. The competition is high. Just keep learning every day and you’ll see the huge outcome after years.



“Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”



What HF means is that we should be simply concerned about the proactive solution of the present situation. There is no chance to go back in time and change the past, so we shouldn’t be “living” in it with our thoughts. Learn from the faults and leave them immediately. You won’t change it anymore, but you can change your future now.



“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”



This is the most important thought of all of them! If you should remember just one point, it has to be this one. Your mindset is the main determinant of your future success. If you will manage to become successful all depends vastly on your mindset.



“You can’t learn in school what the world is going to do next year.”



Another very important thought. Don’t overestimate schools. They can’t actually prepare you for the future. You have to prepare yourself on your own. It’s your own responsibility. The school can actually help you, but it’s only up to you if you can take an advantage from that or you’ll just end up partying and hanging around with friends./If you’re going to the university you should read this post – How to use the time on uni/



“The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.”



All things considered, you can rely only on yourself. This thought-provoking idea encourages us to believe in ourselves. We should be willing to grow on a daily basis in order to become more independent. You don’t have the control over 99% of the events that occur in your life, but the 1% you can influence is crucial



“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is a success.”



Even an entrepreneur such as HF was can’t appreciate enough the importance of the good working group of people. The cooperation is the crucial key to the biggest success. If we can cope together, there’s nothing stronger outside. 1+1 could be two, but if you cooperate you can get a different outcome. Together, you can manage to do much more than if you would work on your own. However, don’t forget that you can’t influence other people’s minds if they are not willing to listen to you.


Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 11.22.10 AM.png


“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said ‘faster horses.”



When you want to become genuinely successful you should think out of the box. The ability to do so is not something you cannot learn with time. The schools and social pressure are often the main causes of the loss of our creativity. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. We can work on our creativity, change our attitude and most importantly, our mindset. The thoughts of the majority of people are too obsolete for you as a growing person. You shouldn’t listen to them too much. It harms your ambitions and ability to create innovation. Everything is possible, remember!  


And a bonus one!


“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.”


That is huge! I know you know you shouldn’t… However, everyone does it sometimes. Let’s change the way we work on ourselves. You’ll thank this man later, trust me!

Investing time and resources with Warren Buffet

The most famous and successful investor of the modern age WB is such an inspiring person. This bright man has become successful owing to his wealthy mindset. He never doubted his abilities and believed he is strong enough to persist on his way to gaining the wealth. He is not only rich in terms of commodity possession, but he is also wealthy in terms of mentality and education. He managed to read every day for about three hours at least for decades. He is the human guide to the ones who are willing to grow mentally and get wealthy as he did. Let’s take a look at his life philosophy to gain some unbelievable power from his words!

 “It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behaviour is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.”



According to the great motivator Jim Rohn, you are the average of the 5 closest people to you. The average of the people you spend the most time with. The people you surround yourself with are the most important ones to your growth. If you don’t have any inspirational people to meet on a regular basis, you should better look for them. You need to inspire and learn from them. This is essential!



“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”



Just think before you act. Every time when you make some decision try to give yourself a particular time to come up with the best one. Obviously, the best one isn’t possible to get from your brain every time, but at least you can try it with giving yourself some extra time to think.

However, don’t be constantly overthinking. Overthinking is the number one killer of success and a positivity for the vast majority of people indeed.



“I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.”



The right set attitude and the powerful thinking combined with an application of the law of attraction can lead to massive success. Just imagine yourself being rich, healthy and happy. You will sooner or later begin to feel like that and the power of your thoughts and deeds will help you to make a great stride towards your financial or any other independence.



“Our favourite holding period is forever.”



When you pick up something, it doesn’t have to be the area of stocks, you should be able to look at the mirror and tell yourself that this is actually the thing you want and that you are willing to keep it for a lifetime. This rule could be applied anywhere in your life. What it basically says is the fact that you should consider whether you’ll be happy with your choice for a lifelong time. It should make you more aware of the power of investment when it’s done right or wrong. The both has its own consequences and it’s completely up to you. You’ve got the power in your hands, it’s upon you how you’ll grab it.

“If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.”



Setting the right priorities is a very important process in order to get yourself to the top. If you spend on the things that you don’t need at all you can be sure that it won’t let you to buy the stuff you actually need. Try to think first before regreting it. You do need a lot less things than you actually think.



“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”



Understanding the principle of time coumpouding is crucial to investing your time and resources. If you don’t understand what it takes then try to learn it before investing anything. If you are not patient enough you better not start at all and prepare yourself for a long journey. Always remember that the Rome wasn’t built in a day and so the success works.



“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.”



If you want to be geuinely successfull whether it means to become wealthy or just extremely happy, you need to understand the value of saying no to the people or activities. Being ascetic from time to time is extremely beneficial to your wellbeing. You should develop a minimalistic mindset in terms of the things you actually need to posses and the activities you actually need to do. Don’t ever try to do anything you can. Instead, do what you have to do.



“The most important investment you can make is in yourself. The more you learn, the more you earn.”



This is huge! I cannot even stress out the importance of that. The point of the whole education is that if you are not willing to learn, you will not learn anything at all. The easiest investment is to you as well. The best thing you can do is to invest your time, energy and resources into your own growth. If you want to help the others, be loved and feel satisfied, you have to begin with yourself first. Every time you want to change something, try changing yourself and don’t ever complain. There is always some way to respond better.



“If you don’t find the way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”



The power of passive income is massive! If you don’t try to find another alternative ways of generating some additional income than from your job, you may never become truly rich. It’s all about the right investing what you have and not just letting your money being cut by inflation. You need to invest your seeds to grow your tree of wealth right now.

“Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful.”



Do not ever follow the others just because everyone does it. Try to adapt the principles of critical thinking. If you are sceptical about the information you will definitely be able to decipher way better the truth from the lie and so on. Just try to develop a minority mindset rather than to follow the majority and wait for miracle. Be proactive and don’t let the mainstream make you broke. If there’s something popular, then it’s supposed to attract the average, because the mediocre ones represent the biggest social layer.

If you’re intrested in one of the books on investing recommended by Warren Buffet himself, these should be the first ones you take a look at! You only need to click on the pictures to begin!
