Robert Kiyosaki is an American businessman, investor, self-help author, motivational speaker, financial literacy activist, financial commentator, and radio personality. He is also the author of one of the best selling business and finance books of all time “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”.

Robert Kiyosaki is the founder of the Rich Dad Company.

 

1. Give and Receive

The most assured way to receive something is to give. It comes down to your attitude towards money. To make a lot of money requires you give a lot. Not only money, but your time and diligence in working for it. At times there are people who want more, but aren’t giving anything.

Is it possible to work less and get paid more? If you want to get paid more, work more! Give more!

 

2. Change The Way You Think

Use your challenges as inspiration! Yes, there will be ups and downs. Plenty of the top Entrepreneurs in the world have been in debt. This is where your way of thinking needs to change, to take action and to work hard. Robert Kiyosaki used his problems as motivation to go out and make more money!

You are your biggest asset and liability.

 

3. Focus On What WILL Work

Follow One Course Until Successful

Quit trying to do multiple things at once and focus on the project at hand! You can clutter yourself with an overload of things and it can not only be distracting, but also exhausting.

Invest your time into something you know. There is nothing wrong with diversity, but when it slows you down and gets in the way of more important things, then you need to rethink your priorities.

Find what will work for you and stick with it. Each person is different.

 

4. From Bad Times To New Opportunities

People fall into a negative spin of emotions when economies crash, like when the great depression happened and when the world financial crisis hit quite a few years ago. But some see this as an opportunity to advance.

While some people are worrying, others are using this as an advantage to buy, or resolve the issues, knowing that there is a solution.

 

5. Design Your Business Properly

It’s not about the product, it’s about designing the business properly without having to raise the capital.

A great way to analyze and understand where your business is progressing and lacking is the B-I triangle which you can see here:

7. Quit Saving!

Don’t just save your money! This doesn’t mean to spend it because you can. Instead, use it wisely!

Use it to advance your business or invest when the opportunity arises.

 

I hope you enjoyed these lessons from the man himself, Robert Kiyosaki.

    Hey Joel,

    Love this article. Its very good example of the KISS method (Keep it simple stupid) Haha.

    I feel like No. 4 really hits me. I have read so many articles from entrepreneurs of today advancing from bad economic times. Andy Frisella, Eric Thomas, etc. and you are absolutely correct! Instead of complaining or using the excuse of “It was a bad economic time” that person can talk about what a blessing it was to be one of the few to dominate that moment in life.

    Hi Joel,

    A great Article…!!!

    Robert Kiyosaki is always my all time favorite writer, coach and financial guru. I have read his many books like rich dad poor dad, business school, business of 21st century etc.

    I strongly believe in point no.2 “Change The Way You Think”. success is all state of mind. if you change the way you see the things, everything gets changed and you start getting positive waves towards you. You will come out the every worse situation if you change your mindset.

    Overall a great article and enjoyed a lot.

    Thanks for sharing, Joel! As a CPA, your statement that read “You are your biggest asset and liability” immediately stood out. Very true! If people truly understood this, they would be able to capitalize on what they bring to the table.

If you are good at your job, exuding confidence will ensure others also recognize your competence in your area of expertise. And research backs this up. (more…)

5 Things You Can Learn From The 5am Club by Robin Sharma

Avatar

Published

on

It has been said by Robin Sharma, “5 AM is the time of least distraction, highest human glory, and greatest peace.” This also happens to be the central idea or the core value he has discussed in his book, ‘The 5 Am Club.’ Speaking of early mornings, at what time do you wake up? Are you annoyed by the fact that you wake up on the edge of time and then rush to work in haste? 

The life lessons put forth by The 5 AM Club are exactly the learning and motivation you need to challenge your complacency. In your race against time, you may not have the time to read this fabulous book. So, we have summed up the key book’s takeaways for your convenience.

1. The vigor of waking up early

This is what the book’s most fundamental advice to everyone is. Waking up at 5 am every day can work wonders to avert failures and make success a natural habit. When we wake up at 5 am, we have more time on our hands than others. Besides, this is when we have minimum interruptions and maximum powerfulness of the mind. 

To add, the early morning peace is priceless! You can schedule your most important tasks of the day between 5am, and 8am. This book teaches us in the simplest way, how we can train our mind and strengthen it to deliver the highest productivity by waking up early. This energy that you have when you wake up in the morning and the few additional hours in your day are what serve as perfect ingredients for success.

“The secret to productivity is simplicity.” – Robin Sharma

2. The power of finding the right balance in life

The book talks about a precious lesson of finding the right balance within. We often talk about the need for mindfulness and achieving the right mindset to perceive things. But this book goes a few steps ahead of our usual approach to life. It highlights the vitality of mindset and introduces the concepts of heartset, healthset, and soulset.

These terms may seem new, but they are self-explanatory. The idea of heartset endorses the essentialness of emotional stability and well-being. Next, the perspective of healthset indicates the need to look after physical health. At last, soulset is an attribute of spirituality. As explained in this book, success prospects can be enhanced big time by achieving the right balance between these internal virtues.

3. The iconic 20/20/20 modus operandi

What is the first thing you will do if you start waking up at 5 am every day? Did you ever spare a thought about it? This book has the answer to this question, and you will be convinced that it is a great way to begin your day!. The author suggests that you should split the first hour of the day into three equal parts of 20 minutes each.

In the first 20 minutes of the day, you should prioritize your physical fitness and exercise. In the next 20 minutes, you should energize your soul and spirit via self-reflection and soulful meditation. This will prepare you for the rest of the day and will enable you to bolster your commitment and focus. In the last 20 minutes of the first hour, you should read and learn. But what are you going to read about in those 20 minutes? Read about successful people and their inspiring journeys to the pinnacle of success.

4. The significance of a proper sleep schedule

In this book, there is a mention of ‘a ferocious global sleep recession’, which is intriguing and enlightening. It hints at the state of sleep deprivation that this world is sinking into gradually. We often associate success and hard work with the notion of staying up all night and testing our endurance beyond limits. But that is not the right approach to accomplishing success, or rather, it is a flawed methodology.

Sometimes even if we do not have any critical work, we keep whiling our night time on social media or television. What are we gaining from it is the real question, and I am afraid the answer is nothing! We learn from this book that it is critical to look after your sleep cycle and start your day at 5 am afresh. Sleep and rest are indispensable for mental and physical well-being, or your productivity will decline.

“If you want to have the results only 5% have, you must be willing to do and think like only 5% do and think.” – Robin Sharma

5. The art of evolving

The book sheds light on the need to be spiritual and master self-reflection. However, do you realize the purpose that the routine of reflection each morning serves? The idea is to keep learning, keep reflecting on the mistakes and keep evolution an ongoing process. You should evolve every day and strive to be a better version of yourself every day. So, one of your primary goals after waking up should be to reflect on your actions and missed opportunities of the previous day.

To recapitulate, The 5 AM Club is a must-read book if you are a passionate reader. It has the prowess and charm to refurbish your perception of life altogether. Even if you cannot read the book for some reason, make sure you incorporate the above key takeaways into your life. By starting your day at 5 am, you can rediscover your lost soul and enthusiasm, and you would not have complaints to make about the lack of time. If you can own your mornings, you can go places on the ladder of success, for excuses are only for those who are not committed to their goals.
