Robert Kiyosaki‘s book Rich Dad Poor Dad has been referred to as the ultimate guide to develop a “think rich” mentality. It is, in fact, our limiting beliefs about money that can hold us back when we are trying to achieve a better financial status.

First of all you need to look at your own motivations to have more money

Although you will need more than a book (or books) to get to the root of your own attitudes towards money and self-worth, Rich Dad, Poor Dad can be a useful reminder of how to look at your financial affairs and develop better strategies at improving your finances.

First of all you need to look at your own motivations to have more money, what you are prepared to do and what you will not do to make more money.

Kiyosaki himself has become a global superstar – his best-selling book has generated a number of related products and services like seminars, coaching, apps and games

Look at how you spend

The key message is to look at how you spend: do you spend to accumulate stuff (liabilities) or do you spend to invest (assets)?

A word of warning: some people will refer to this book as a resource to learn how to make easy money. It is not.
