When You Think Real Estate Think Rich

When You Think Real Estate - Think Rich

What is the difference between people who get rich and people who don't? It is a very simple question that many people simply forget to ask. The first time you are truly confronted with this question, you will probably reach for an easy answer, such as, “Being born into a rich family” or “Getting lucky with the lotto” or even “Having a good career that pays a lot of money.” And you might indeed be considered lucky if any of those things had happened to you.

The bad news for those lucky people is that being in those circumstances is no guarantee of wealth. In fact, according to Robert Kiyosaki, author of the Rich Dad book series, it isn't about how much money you bring in, but how much money you keep that determines how wealthy you are.

For instance, his father, the highly educated man to whom he refers in his books as his “poor dad,” always had a good salary. Yet, Kiyosaki said, at the end of every quarter, he was practically penniless.

The good news for you, is that becoming rich has less to do with external factors like your job or whether you were born a Rockefeller, which you can't control, and more to do with internal factors which you can.

Whether you ever become rich or not is determined, in large part, by nothing more than how you think.

The man Kiyosaki dubbed his “rich dad” broke people down into four types and set them on a graph he called the Cash Flow Quadrant. On one side of the quadrant are the E's and S's, or the Employees and the Self-employed. On the other side are the B's and I's, or the Businesspeople and the Investors. According to Kiyosaki, each of those quadrants represents which sector a person's money comes from. It also represents the way that person thinks.

Are you beginning to see? The people in the four quadrants are not there by chance–they are there because they experience life in fundamentally different ways.

“The four people in the four quadrants are four totally different people,” Kiyosaki says in his book “Cash Flow Quadrant.” “The four people found in the four different quadrants are different mentally as well as emotionally.”

What's more, Kiyosaki says, it is that emotional difference that determines to which quadrant a person is drawn. And, he says, you can always tell which quadrant a person is coming from simply by listening to what they say. If you hear a person talking primarily about their benefits and job security, then that person is coming from Kiyosaki's E or employee quadrant. He also goes on to say that it is perfectly all right to live your life in the E quadrant if security is indeed the most important thing to you. But, he adds, the E quadrant is the most difficult quadrant from which to become rich.

It sounds a little scary at first, but this is actually good news for you. It's good news because it means that, if you want to get rich, all you have to do is start thinking more like the people who live in the I, or investors, quadrant.

One of the best things you can invest in is real estate. That is what Kiyosaki's rich dad did, and it made him...well, rich. In order to think like a real estate investor, simply tell your money that you are through working for it. It is time for your money to get to work for you.

Why Real Estate Investing Is A Process
One thing that many people do not realize is that learning to invest in real estate is a process. They don't realize that because they often only see the end result – a prosperous person with a Midas Touch, or a person who always finds themselves in an avalanche of great deals.

Perhaps they have...

The Psychology Of Real Estate Investing

Actually, it does. Specifically, you should adopt the mindset of the successful real estate investor. Successful real estate...

Anyone Can Learn To Win At The Real Estate Game
People enjoy being mystified. Art mystifies them, so they ooh and ahh and congratulate the artist on his or her natural talent. They see science as a mystery, so they aren't even interested in what it is that scientists are actually doing. Investment in real estate mystifies them, and so they assume it's just a gamble and that certain people are either lucky, or that they must have been born with a gift . The fact is that succeeding in these disciplines and others is just a matter of...

How You Can Invest In Real Estate

In “Cash Flow Quadrant” however, he reveals how much money he paid for his first investment condo.

Avoid Rookie Real Estate Investing Mistakes

He had taken that first important step in truly building his wealth that the man he called his “rich dad” so often touted—investing. He knew it was very important to become an investor and make his money work for him. The trouble was, the property he purchased was a losing deal for him. He didn't see this at first, thanks to a smooth-talking real estate...

Why Real Estate Investing Is For Skeptics
According to the American Heritage Dictionary, a skeptic can be defined as, one who instinctively or habitually doubts, questions, or disagrees with assertions or generally accepted conclusions. People generally use a derisive tone to call someone who questions things a skeptic, because it is easier for them to bully someone out of having a scientific approach to things, than to back up their own assertions. However, being a skeptic is not a bad thing, especially when it comes to money....

Real Estate Investing The Pipeline To Your Financial Freedom
If you need to get water from one place to another, it seems to be common sense that you would build a pipeline to get the most water for the least amount of work, using technology. But the reality is, most people are taught to overlook the obvious in favor of the most familiar approach. Consider this story, told by Robert Kiyosaki in his book, “Cash Flow Quadrant.” There once was a village that had to wait for the rain in order to have water. This was a major problem for the village, and so...

Investment Property Is Good Debt
There is a lot of buzz on the web about Good Debt vs Bad Debt. The fact is, most of the baby boomers learned money matters from parents who grew up during the Great Depression. Since that time, many things have changed such as the Federal Reserve Board, insurance for deposits, checks and balances on banking procedures and since the 80s, checks and balances on Savings and Loans businesses. If you talk to a banker, you will hear one side, if you talk to a real estate investor, you will hear...
