THE POOR DAD

The author, Robert Kiyosaki, compares his poor dad to the millions of fathers who encourage their sons to do well in school so they could get a good job with a good company. Poor dad believed in the traditional principles of working hard, saving money, and not buying material things that one cannot afford. He believed that having a good job with a solid company is what one should aspire for; hence he expresses disappointment when his son leaves the employ of a large, reputable corporation.

Poor dad looks to education as the passport to success. He held a doctorate degree, went to Ivy League universities, but was always struggling financially. He believed he would never be a rich man and the author points out that this became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Poor dad was more interested in a good education than the subject of money. The author wrote that his poor dad would always say things like, “I’m not interested in money” or “money doesn’t matter.”

The author points out that poor dad was preoccupied with things like job tenure and security, Social Security, vacation and sick leaves, company insurance and salary raises and promotions. The author felt that his poor dad was more interested in these factors rather than on the job itself. This is what the author calls being trapped in the Rat Race. His poor dad worked hard incessantly but somehow never made it ahead financially. Poor dad’s approach to the subject of money was based on working hard to have enough money to pay the bills (in contrast to rich dad’s approach to make one’s money work for him).

  1. Fabulous Indeginous House

    Indigenous home, in the picture, was developed by Michael Flowers consists of decks larges windows and practical facades in line with a strong indoor-outdoor connection, according to furniture shop in Phnom Penh construction materials reported.

    Flowers stated, “The addition is shifted back to produce a sequence of spatial filters that smoothly mediate levels of exposure for more private areas of the home and take advantage of numerous views to the lake.
    Remaining connected through the kitchen, dining, and living areas, the addition and existing cabin act as a series of transitional interior and exterior spaces, with the ability to adapt to seasons, lake lifestyle, and the evolving needs of a growing family, while keeping the idea of lake cabin and bunk house intact.”
    Additionally, the interior features a wonderful show of modern furniture which make house look more fabulous.
