After working 13 years of my life working hard in what I thought was a safe, secure job, I realized I was still broke, very tired, spent no time with my family, and thought to myself “Is this it? Is This The Rest Of My Life?”. I knew there had to be a better way, so I started to search.
I Was Playing With The Old Rules Of Money
One thing I knew I had to learn was “Why Some People Become Financially Free” and I started to study many books, tapes, CDs, DVDs, & I attended seminars. One of my favorite authors who taught me most of my Financial Education is Robert Kiyosaki. He said there were New Rules Of Money, that everything changed after 1971 when President Nixon took the US off the gold standard, and after 1974 when ERISA (401K) was passed.
Robert says “Are You Still Playing By The Old Rules Of Money?”
Here’s the list, see which ones you are still playing by:
1) Go to school & get a safe, secure job
2) Work hard to earn more money
3) Save money
4) Buy a house
5) Get out of debt
6) Invest for the long term (mutual funds)
Here’s a video by Robert Kiyosaki to explain some of the new rules:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALymGxpyi6M
Isn’t that mind boggling? It was the first time I heard it and then I realized it all made sense! I finally knew The Secret! 😯 If you would like to continue to learn about the “New Rules of Money”, click on Part II.
