Robert Kiyosaki quotes.
We never put water instead of petrol in our vehicles. We never eat McDonald’s for one week straight. We are aware that these are slow poisons that will harm your vehicle or body in long term.
But what about our mind? Do we see the useless things going in our mind daily through social media?
Most of the people these days spend majority of their time consuming toxic information from the internet and then complain about the lack of time.
What Robert want to suggest us by this quote is that every successful person in this world has reached at that level by using his mind by seeing the opportunities others couldn’t. This happened only because they treated their mind as an asset and only put what was required inside to reach that level.
If you put garbage in your mind everyday, you know what will come out.
Time is the most limited thing we have and is the only thing we waste most.
I wrote seven chapters of my book as a ghostwriter in three months but I wrote the last chapter in just 4 hours. This happened because I worked with a plan and avoided every distraction that stopped me from writing. Had I written with this concentration in first seven chapters, I would have completed an entire book in just a week.
I was amazed by this realization. I could now write at-least one book a month. Imagine how many books I could write within next 3 years and where would it take my expertise? The rich adopts this way of thinking.
Think about it.
When I met a motivational speaker who was doing as I want to do, I offered to write him few articles for free. When I had to submit my first article in next few days, I was not feeling like writing it. I had doubts and fear whether the article will go well.
But due to prior commitment, I had to write it. I had to face my doubts and fears.
To my surprise, I went on to write amazingly well. Everyone loved the article. I wrote few more articles and this led me to write an entire book for him.
This happened because I faced my fears and doubts by making a prior commitment.
Prior to being millionaires, Robert and his wife Kim rejected many jobs in-spite of having very little money. They didn’t see any opportunity with their eyes but they knew in their mind that they will become millionaires. They saw opportunity in their mind and worked on it.
Rest all is history.
Uber didn’t see people on roads waiting for taxi, Zomato didn’t see people wanting to order food at their homes. They all saw the opportunities with their mind.
Look at your surroundings. Do you see any opportunities with your mind which other people are not able to see?
Business is not possible to run single handed. We need to manage other people too. For that you need leadership skills. If you think that you have a good business idea and your business will succeed, then you are wrong.
A business is run by many people and the one who manages all needs good leadership skills. Kiyosaki says that only because of a leader’s lack of leadership skills, people are either motivated or demotivated to work. And demotivated people are one of the reason for a company’s lack of progress ahead.
