His own fathers was a conventionally well educated man. He went through college for his education and later he had a corporate style career in education. One of his friend’s Dads is represented by other father or the ‘Rich Dad’ he did no well in school but created and ran successful businesses that made him rich.

The typical advice parents and grandparents give is to get a good education gives you a good job. As times change everything changes even the way to earn money also. But the sad part is that this mentality of parents never changes and you will find many people who still believe this.

Robert Kiyosaki explains that it is the most important step to start understanding how to create wealth in your life. In his book Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki says that people are trap and they trade their life when right price is offered them by a company. People every time just hunt for jobs because they have the fear of not having money to buy the necessities in life. It is the greed and fear of person that wakes them early in the morning and waste their life away at a job they probably don’t even like.

Since fear and greed are an emotion, having money in itself doesn’t always solve the problem. A person needs to change mental shift otherwise it becomes difficult to control the emotions. Even the rich person also fears losing the money. Most of us think that a rich person is never worried about his money but that’s not true. That mental shift needs to happen.

People are so alert to hound that next pay check they never take the time to step back and see where it is taking them. You should always realizing that job is only a temporary solution this won’t solve all your problems. Once you realize this your conscience and sub-conscience mind will start looking for ways to solve this problem.
