Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad) says, “The world is filled with smart, talented, educated and gifted people…(who) are one skill away from great wealth.” I guess the trick is working out what that particular skill is!
I am a big believer in perpetual learning. Recently I dramatically increased the amount of property-related reading I’ve done. Not only have I learned a huge amount about property, tax, loans and renovating, but I’ve found myself increasingly motivated. I’m normally very interested in property and investment but now my excitement has moved to a whole new level. I’m seeing opportunities I never thought existed. I’ve gained an even deeper understanding of my own investments. I’ve even considered a few options I never thought possible…
The lesson I’ve learned is that doing the right reading increases your knowledge AND your motivation levels. I’m sure it’ll do the same for you.
So don’t sit back and wait for information to present itself to you – go and find it. Listen to a podcast, read a blog, buy a magazine. You’ll be glad you did. That wealth-bringing skill may be just one chapter away!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and finish my book.
