Just read Rich Dad Poor Dad for the umpteenth time (a great book by the way)

10 lessons I picked up from the book.

A thread.
1. To win, you have to understand that failure is part of the process, see it as a growth opportunity. Never fear failing.

"Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success.
People who avoid failure also avoid success"
2. You can not talk or dream yourself into getting rich. You have to take action.

"You’re only poor if you give up. The most important thing is that you did something.

Most people only talk and dream of getting rich. You’ve done something.”
3. “Emotions are what make us human. Make us real.

The word 'emotion' stands for energy in motion.

Be truthful about your emotions, and use your mind and emotions in your favor, not against yourself.”
4. If you’re the kind of person who has no guts, you just give up every time life pushes you.

If you 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.
5. Do you face your fears or run away from it?

"The primary difference between a rich person and poor person is how they manage fear.”
6. Are you buying Stocks or the lastest iPhone?

“Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle class acquire liabilities that they think are assets.”
7. Money Twitter loves this one

"In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them.

Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes.

We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk.”
8. Don't just have a goal. Have a mission, have vision.

"Sight is what you see with your eyes, vision is what you see with your mind.”
9. Really though?

"Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit.”
10. The stronger your will, the easier the task.

If you want it bad enough, you will certainly find it.

“As I said, I wish I could say it was easy. It wasn’t, but it wasn’t hard either.

But without a strong reason or purpose, anything in life is hard

5 Life changing lessons from Naval you should know.

A thread..
Think long term.

If we embrace the long-term view, try being patient and getting rid of too much emotion, we will be able to achieve many things.

Self-esteem is the reputation you have with yourself.

'The more you do good things — the more you respect yourself and love yourself. Every time you lie, you lie to yourself.
And you gradually start to love yourself less and have low self-esteem' - Naval

Steve Jobs once said:

“It’s only by saying “No” that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.”

6 things you should say "No" to for a happier life.

A thread...
1. Unsolicited advice.

When someone is trying to tell you what to do or how to do something, question whether they are eligible to give you tips.

If they didn’t achieve the results you want to achieve, you should probably ignore their advice and talk to someone more experienced
2. Eliminate "busywork"

Busywork are activities that waste lots of time but don’t lead to valuable outcomes.

Typical examples are meetings, notifications that distract you during work hours, constantly checking newsfeeds and social media.

Between the ages of 18 and 25 we have a certain superpower - Power to Screw Things Up.

Mistakes made during this time rarely cause permanent damage our lives

While making mistakes can set our paths, investing does it better.

5 things to invest in while in your 20s

A thread.
1. Invest in Books

Books hold information that someone else spent years collecting, organizing and making easy to understand.

Use that help!

It stays with you forever.
Most people stagnate as soon as they get a job out of college because they stop growing and learning at the same rate they used to.

Learn what others are unwilling to learn so you create an arsenal of knowledge that supports you in creating the life you desire!

If you could spend $1 and get $2 back, how many $ would you spend? Everything you could get your hands on right?

That's one of the best things about Solo ads.

For every dollar you spend, you know exactly how much you can get in return.

A short thread.
Let's imagine this.

You spend $97 to buying 150 clicks.

You know the approximate amount of visitors to expect to click your link

You also know that each one of those visitors cost you $0.65.
Imagine half of those visitors (75) subscribe to your email list.

Then every new subscriber has cost you $1.29

Imagine if just 4 people purchased your product and you get a commission of $25 per sale.

You'd have made $100 after spending $97.

"Typical buyers will say no as many as five times before saying yes to owning a product."

Many salespeople hear that statistic and think it
means that to become a top salesperson, one must hit buyers with same information until they cave in.

They imagine this conversation👇
Kyle: Would you like to buy?
Josefa: No.

Kyle: Are you sure? It’s a really good deal.
Josefa: No.

Kyle: We both know you have a need for it. And you told me you have room in your budget.
Josefa: No.
Kyle: You can count on us to deliver what we promise. We have been around for one hundred years.
Josefa: No.

Kyle: It includes free shipping and your choice of colors.
Josefa: No.

Kyle: At this price, they won’t last long. Now is the best time to buy.
Josefa: Well… maybe.

Did you know?

88% of millionaires are self made?

They weren't born into their wealth, their habits led them to their wealth.

A thread...
I may not be a millionaire yet, but I have been around quite a lot of them and can tell you exactly how they think.

The 6 biggest difference between them and us.
1. Belief

The Rich: Believe they can succeed even when no one believes them

The Poor: They are dependent on other people's opinions, they don't believe they can do it.
