87 Robert Kiyosaki Quotes About Wealth & Success

One of the most popular financial books ever written has inspired millions to pursue passive income via real estate investing. It’s also been responsible for changing the way investors think about wealth and success. 

Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad is that book with over 40 million copies sold worldwide. 

Two major points that stood out to me were:

  1. You do NOT need a high income to become rich.
  2. The poor work for money whereas the rich make  money work for them.

Shortly after reading this book, I picked up his follow up book, The Cashflow Quadrant.

I felt the information that I was learning was important enough to teach our boys so I purchased his Cashflow for Kids board game

One of the points that really stood out was the particular mindset congruent to making money that was needed.

I knew that I couldn’t continue to only be self-employed my entire life as it would still require me to continue trade time for money.

This mindset shift has allowed me to focus on acquiring assets that can work for me instead of me working for them. 

Once you obtain this growth mindset, then you’ll be well on your way to financial independence. 

Here’s 87 Robert Kiyosaki quotes about wealth and success to get you started in the right direction.
