In Dreams

I have ALMOST finished reading Rich Dad Poor Dad.ย I’m usually the type to shy away from anything analytical or numbers based – which is exactly why I should’ve read it – but this was a cracker!

I thoroughly recommend it, particularly if you are struggling with money blocks or money mindset issues. This book will definitely help to clear out your blocks surrounding whether or not you can be wealthy.

I have given you a sneaky peek of my thoughts and takeaways from the book below. Do yourself a favour and grab a copy!

Some questions I will continue to ponder;

  • What would my life be like if I never worked again?
  • What would I do if I had all the money I needed?
  • How do I respond to failure?
  • Don’t say you can’t afford it. Ask yourself “how can I afford it?”
  • Make a list of WANTS (what you want for your life) and DON’T WANTS


  1. Use fear to propel you forward, not keep you held back in fear.
  2. Failure inspires winners.
  3. There is a big difference between hating losing and being afraid to lose.
  4. Put all your eggs in a few baskets and FOCUS. Follow One Course Until Successful.
  5. The ability to SELL, MARKET and COMMUNICATE are the most important skills.
  6. How many can cook a better hamburger than McDonalds? It’s not about better burgers, it’s about better systems. For McDonalds it’s about real estate.
  7. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. Manage the risk.
  8. Learn to take risks, be bold. Learn to let genius convert the fear into power and brilliance.
  9. Learn to use your emotions to think, not think with your emotions.
  10. When you find yourself avoiding something – ask yourself “what’s in it for me?” Get a little greedy!
  11. The seemingly worst of times are the best times to invest.

Have you read Rich Dad Poor Dad? What did were your takeaways?ย
