Cynicism and Fear
Taking the lessons of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and using them to your advantage, can help you make money work for you. In Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki compares the habits of rich people to those of poor people. He uses a variety of examples to drive home the message.
The first obstacle is fear. Many people are stuck in jobs they don’t want because they are worried about not making enough money. Many of them are also afraid of failure.
The second obstacle is cynicism. Cynicism can manifest in a variety of ways, from doubting a good deal to backing out of an investment at the last minute. The third obstacle is laziness. The most common form of laziness is being too busy to work on things that will improve your wealth.
Working to earn a pension doesn’t make you rich
Getting a shot in the arm is one thing, figuring out how to save money for retirement is another. A retirement savings plan is a great way to make sure you’re not reliant on social security for your financial future. A good retirement plan can also provide the peace of mind of knowing that you’ll be able to retire with some semblance of affluence.
The best way to go about this is to find a retirement plan that has a reputable track record, preferably a plan that you’ll have some involvement in. It’s a good idea to start planning your retirement early on if you aren’t fortunate enough to have a job that will pay you for life. Most retirement plans are set up to pay you for life, but that isn’t always the case.
