According to Robert T. Kiyosaki, there are five things happen to people who do not invest. If you are not investing money yet, you better read this so that you will have an idea on what would happen to you for the future or for your retirement. In the book Rich Dad’s Cashflow Quadrant; a guide to financial freedom Robert T. Kiyosaki said that “learning to invest is important because investing is the key to financial freedom“.
I absolutely agree with Robert T. Kiyosaki when he talked about investing. Most people do know they should invest for their financial future (retirement). The problem of most people (in his book like Poor Dad), believe that investing money is risky. But the truth is investing is risky if you are lack of financial education, investing experience and guidance.
Learn Personal Finance Education
Take note of the first criteria. You should have financial education. Where to learn financial education? There are many ways to learn financial education nowadays. You can read books, attend seminars, ask certified financial planners, read personal finance blogs like Investment Total.com or ask the investors in online forum.
Acquire Investing Experience
The second criteria is investing experience. How can you have experience in investing if you are afraid to take risk? if you always think investing is risky, then, you will have no time and always afraid to invest. Thus, you can’t acquired investing experience.
Seek Help and Guidance
Investing will only become risky if you are not sure on what you’re doing. You need a personal finance planner, a investment advisor or expert investors that can teach you along the way.
5 Things Happen to People who Do no Invest
The idea is to conquer your fear. You have to face your fear in investing money so that you can start right now. Unless you want to experience these five things happen to people who do not invest;
- They work hard all their lives.
- They worry about money all their lives.
- They depend on others, such as family, a company pension, or the government, to take care of them.
- The boundaries of their lives are defined by money.
- They will not know what true freedom is.
If you don’t want to work hard for a lifetime, then start investing money today. If you don’t want to worry about money today, next week, next month, next year or even a lifetime, then invest money right now. I will leave you this special quote from Rich Dad;
“You will never know true freedom until you achieve financial freedom”. I hope you liked this article. Stay tuned to Return on Investment blog for more encouragement, useful articles and resources about personal finance and investments.
