Rich Dad Poor Dad Best Quotes By Robert Kiyosaki

“Most of the time, life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

“A doctor, wanting more money to better provide for his family, raises his fees. By raising his fees, it makes health care more expensive for everyone. It hurts the poor people the most, so they have worse health than those with money. Because the doctors raise their fees, the attorneys raise their fees. Because the attorneys’ fees have gone up, schoolteachers want a raise, which raises our taxes, and on and on and on. Soon there will be such a horrifying gap between the rich and the poor that chaos will break out and another great civilization will collapse. History proves that great civilizations collapse when the gap between the haves and have-nots is too great.”

Robert Kiyosaki Motivational Quotes

“To spend your life living in fear, never exploring your dreams is cruel. To work hard for money, thinking that it will buy you things that will make you happy is also cruel. To wake up in the middle of the night terrified about paying bills is a horrible way to live. To live a life dictated by the size of a paycheck is not really living a life. Thinking that a job makes you secure is lying to yourself. That’s cruel, and that’s a trap I want you to avoid…” — rich dad poor dad”
― Robert Kiyosaki

“A reason or a purpose is a combination of “wants” and “don’t wants”.”
― Robert Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki Motivational Quotes

“more money will often not solve the problem. In fact, it may compound the problem. Money often makes obvious our tragic human flaws, putting a spotlight on what we don’t know.

― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

― Robert T. Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki Quotes About Success

“Everyone wants to go to Heaven, but no one wants to die.”
― Robert Kiyosaki

Robert Kiyosaki Quotes About Success

“Most people have a price. And they have a price because of human emotions named fear and greed. First, the fear of being without money motivates us to work hard, and then once we get that paycheck, greed or desire starts us thinking about all the wonderful things money can buy. A pattern is then set: get up, go to work, pay bills, get up, go to work, pay bills… Their lives are then run forever by two emotions, fear and greed. Offer them more money, and they continue the cycle by also increasing their spending. This is what I call the Rat Race.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

“One of the reasons the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the middle class struggles in debt is because the subject of money is taught at home, not in school. Most of us learn about money from our parents. So what can a poor parent tell their child about money? They simply say “Stay in school and study hard.” The child may graduate with excellent grades but with a poor person’s financial programming and mind-set. It was learned while the child was young.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

“I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the Rat Race.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Robert Kiyosaki Quotes About Success

― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Robert Kiyosaki Famous Quotes

“Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.”

― Robert T. Kiyosaki

That’s the price of studying to learn a profession or trade, and then working for money. Most people become a slave to money… and then get angry at their boss.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Robert Kiyosaki Famous Quotes

THE FEAR OF BEING DIFFERENT PREVENTS MOST PEOPLE FROM SEEKING NEW WAYS TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

“I find so many people struggling, often working harder, simply because they cling to old ideas. They want things to be the way they were; they resist change. I know people who are losing their jobs or their houses, and they blame technology or the
economy or their boss. Sadly they fail to realize that they might be the problem. Old ideas are their biggest liability. It is a liability simply because they fail to realize that while that idea or way of doing something was an asset yesterday, yesterday is gone.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

Robert Kiyosaki Quotes On Network Marketing And Real Estate

If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer through the changes. If they think money will solve the problems, I am afraid those people will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone.”
― Robert T. Kiyosaki, Rich Dad, Poor Dad

“If you’re the kind of person who has no guts, you just give up every time life pushes you. If you’re that kind of person, you’ll live all your life playing it safe, doing the right things, saving yourself for something that never happens. Then, you die a boring old man.”
