Ever since I can remember, I was accustomed to “study hard in order to get good grades and work in a good company.” Everything went well until I read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad.

The book disturbed my seemingly placid life, financial-wise. What Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad) said in the book were counter-intuitive! It was totally different from what many of us learned.

Stop working for money

Kiyosaki doesn’t believe in job security. In his book, he was saying that you work to learn. Learning meant everything to him. Instead of working for money, you make money work for you. 

Instead of “study hard in order to get good grades and work in a good company”, Kiyosaki said, “study hard so you could put up your own company.”


Work less, earn more

As an employee, I knew that in order to earn more, I need to work more. In order to increase my salary, I need to work hard to get a promotion and get a raise.

Kiyosaki taught otherwise. He said, you could work less and earn more. In fact, you could stop working and still continue earning. He introduced the concept of  passive incomeIt is the income that you earn even while you’re on vacation or while you’re sleeping.

Later on, he also explained concepts like assets and liabilities, good debts and bad debts. If you think that a car is an asset, you’ll be surprised at how Kiyosaki views it.


Financial Freedom

If I were to summarize his 266-page book into two words, it’s financial freedom. This is the stage wherein we could choose to stop working if we want to but we still maintain the kind of lifestyle we want. I would like to be financially free! Imagine, if money is no longer an issue, then you could go on vacations with your family and friends, play your favorite sports, or pursue your real passion.

Though Kiyosaki’s teachings are counter-intuitive, I bought his ideas because they made sense. And so I immersed myself in books and seminars on financial literacy.

One seminar I’m really excited about is the upcoming Rich Dad Asia seminar here in Manila! Now we don’t have to go abroad just to attend a Rich Dad seminar. I know of someone who actually went to Singapore and pay Php200k just to attend a Rich Dad seminar.
