    I enjoyed reading all of them. Nothing made me change and start looking at life from a different persective than the day I started reading Robert Kiyosaki’s books. School does not teach these things. Reminds me of another of those quotes by this author, though I may not have put the words correctly but it was sth like, ‘school systems have succeeded at mass producing people with inept financial education’. Sad thing is that I was one of them but I working towards changing this by educating myself by reading all relevant material that improves my financial education, creating sales funnels, suppressing my doubts and taking risks as I charge towards financial freedom.

    I enjoyed reading all of them. Nothing made me change and start looking at life from a different persective than the day I started reading Robert Kiyosaki’s books. School does not teach these things. Reminds me of another of those quotes by this author, though I may not have put the words correctly but it was sth like, ‘school systems have succeeded at mass producing people with inept financial education’. Sad thing is that I was one of them but I working towards changing this by educating myself by reading all relevant material that improves my financial education, creating sales funnels, suppressing my doubts and taking risks as I charge towards financial freedom.

6. “I come from an era, in my world, where you just had to define yourself as who you are and what you do.” – Idris Elba
