Second Chance

For Your Money, Your Life and Our World (2015.1)


关于本书 About the book

Robert Kiyosaki’s new book, Second Chance…for Your Money and Your Life, uses the lessons from the past and a brutal assessment of the present to prepare readers to see—–and seize–—the future.

If readers can train their minds to see what their eyes cannot, in a world that is becoming increasingly more ‘invisible’ and moving at a high rate of speed, they can have a second chance at creating the life they’ve always wanted.

本书金句 Key insights

● Bailouts and a system of inflation are only harmful to the people who work for a paycheck: employees, freelancers, small businesses and specialists. These are the groups that pay the highest taxes and tend to keep their savings in the bank.

● Modern education is designed to turn people into employees, taxpayers and consumers. People often assume that education is the solution to poverty: if you study harder, you’ll get a better job and earn more. Unfortunately things aren’t that simple.

● People who haven’t been educated on finance think in terms of income and expenses instead. That’s why they often mistake liabilities for assets.

● For entrepreneurs, intelligence is all about handling risks and financial losses, learning from mistakes and staying level-headed.

● If you want to become wealthy, find ways to do more with less. Debt can help you in a similar way, it can be powerful because it allows you to do things you don’t otherwise have the savings to do.
