“The most important specialized skills are sales and marketing. The ability to sell—to communicate to another human being, be it a customer, employee, boss, spouse, or child—is the base skill of personal success.”

“It’s how you handle failure that makes the difference in one’s life.”

“Communication skills such as writing, speaking, and negotiating are crucial to a life of success. These are skills I work on constantly, attending courses or buying educational resources to expand my knowledge.”

“Rich dad encouraged Mike and me to know a little about a lot. He encouraged us to work with people smarter than we were and to bring smart people together to work as a team. Today it would be called a synergy of professional specialties.”

“The better you are at communicating, negotiating, and handling your fear of rejection, the easier life is.”

“People are so afraid of losing that they lose”

“A savvy investor knows that the seemingly worst of times is actually the best of times to make money. When everyone else is too afraid to act, they pull the trigger and are rewarded.”

1.Management of cash flow

2.Management of systems

3.Management of people”

“Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness.”

“What I know makes me money. What I don’t know loses me money. Every time I have been arrogant, I have lost money. Because when I’m arrogant, I truly believe that what I don’t know is not important,”

“There is gold everywhere. Most people are not trained to see it.”

“Money is made on information. You want to hear about the next boom, get in, and get out before the next bust.”

“It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk.”

“Master a formula and then learn a new one: the power of learning quickly”

“You become what you study.” In other words, be careful what you learn, because your mind is so powerful that you become what you put in your head.”

“I constantly remind people to not focus on their product, service, or widget, but to focus on developing management skills. The three most important management skills necessary to start your own business are management of:

1.Cash flow

2.People

3.Personal time”

“Finding what people miss is key to any success.”

There are 2 types of people. People who are too busy to take care of their wealth, and people too busy to take care of their health.

The words “I can’t afford it” shut down your brain. “How can I afford it?” opens up possibilities, excitement, and dreams.

“The rich know that savings are only used to create more money, not to pay bills.”

“If you’re not tough inside, the world will always push you around”

“I only play with money I can afford to lose.”

Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki Book Quotes Part 1

“One dad would say, ‘The love of money is the root of all evil.’ The other said, ‘The lack of money is the root of all evil.’”

“As a process, choosing for myself turned out to be much more valuable in the long run than simply accepting or rejecting a single point of view.”

“One of the reasons the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the middle class struggles in debt is that the subject of money is taught at home, not in school.”

“One dad had a habit of saying, ‘I can’t afford it.’ The other dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted I ask, ‘How can I afford it?’”

“Proper physical exercise increases your chances for health, and proper mental exercise increases your chances for wealth.”

One dad recommended, “Study hard so you can find a good company to work for.” The other recommended, “Study hard so you can find a good company to buy.”

One said, “When it comes to money, play it safe. Don’t take risks.” The other said, “Learn to manage risk.”

“One believed, “Our home is our largest investment and our greatest asset.” The other believed, “My house is a liability, and if your house is your largest investment, you’re in trouble.”

“One dad taught me how to write an impressive resumé so I could find a good job. The other taught me how to write strong business and financial plans so I could create jobs.”

“Choosing not to listen to my highly educated dad’s advice and attitude about money was a painful decision, but it was a decision that shaped the rest of my life.”

“Money is one form of power. But what is more powerful is financial education. Money comes and goes, but if you have the education about how money works, you gain power over it and can begin building wealth.”

“People go to school and never learned how money works, so they spend their lives working for money.”

“Opportunities come and go. Being able to know when to make quick decisions is an important skill.”

“Most of the time, life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying, ‘Wake up. There’s something I want you to learn.”

“If you learn life’s lessons, you will do well. If not, life will just continue to push you around.”

“Life pushes all of us around. Some people give up and others fight. A few learn the lesson and move on. They welcome life pushing them around. To these few people, it means they need and want to learn something. They learn and move on. Most quit, and a few like you fight.”

“Most will spend the best years of their lives working for money, not really understanding what it is they are working for.”

“When it comes to money, most people want to play it safe and feel secure. So passion does not direct them. Fear does.”

“It’s fear that keeps most people working at a job: the fear of not paying their bills, the fear of being fired, the fear of not having enough money, and the fear of starting over. That’s the price of studying to learn a profession or trade, and then working for money. Most people become a slave to money—and then get angry at their boss.”

“You’re taxed when you earn. You’re taxed when you spend. You’re taxed when you save. You’re taxed when you die.”

“They think that more money will solve the problem and don’t realize that it’s their lack of financial education that is the problem.”

“Their vision is too narrow. Most people never see the trap they are in.”

“Every person has a weak and needy part of their soul that can be bought, and he knew that every individual also had a part of their soul that was resilient and could never be bought.”

“People’s lives are forever controlled by two emotions: FEAR and GREED.”

“Money Trap Pattern: Get up, go to work, pay bills. (Cycle goes on) earn more money, and the spending just increases.”

“The main cause of poverty or financial struggle is fear and ignorance, not the economy or the government or the rich.”

“Fear pushes you out the door, and desire calls to you. That’s the trap.”

“Once a person stops searching for information and self-knowledge, ignorance sets in.”

“School is important. You go to school to learn a skill or profession to become a contributing member of society. Every culture needs teachers, doctors, mechanics, artists, cooks, businesspeople, police officers, firefighters, and soldiers. Schools train them so society can thrive and flourish,” said rich dad. “Unfortunately, for many people school is the end, not the beginning.”

“To spend your life living in fear, never exploring your dreams, is cruel. To work hard for money, thinking that it will buy you things that will make you happy is also cruel. To wake up in the middle of the night terrified about paying bills is a horrible way to live. To live a life dictated by the size of a paycheck is not really living a life. Thinking that a job makes you secure is lying to yourself.”

“It is ignorance about money that causes so much greed and fear.”

“History proves that great civilizations collapse when the gap between the haves and have-nots is too great. We haven’t learned from history. We only memorize historical dates and names, not the lesson.”

“Learn to use your emotions to think, not think with your emotions”

“Confronting fear, weaknesses, and neediness by choosing our own thoughts is the way out.”

“Instead of just getting up and going to work because not having the money to pay your bills is scaring you, ask yourself, ‘Is working harder at this the best solution to this problem?’ Most people are too afraid to rationally think things through and instead run out the door to a job they hate. The Tar Baby (bills at the end of the month) is in control.”

“A job is only a short-term solution to a long-term problem.”

“Money controls their lives, or should I say the fear and ignorance about money controls it”

“The rich know that money is an illusion, truly like the carrot for the donkey.”

“The avoidance of money is just as psychotic as being attached to money.”

“Money is not the answer to everything. There are rich people who are more fearful of becoming poor. Of losing it all.”

“Emotions are what make us human. The word ‘emotion’ stands for ‘energy in motion.’ Be truthful about your emotions and use your mind and emotions in your favor, not against yourself.”

“Just be an observer, not a reactor, to your emotions. Most people do not know that it’s their emotions that are doing the thinking. Your emotions are your emotions, but you have got to learn to do your own thinking.”

“If the fear of not having enough money arises, instead of immediately running out to get a job, they instead might ask themselves this question: ‘Will a job be the best solution to this fear over the long run?’ In my opinion, the answer is no. A job is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem.”

“I want to teach you to master the power of money, instead of being afraid of it. They don’t teach that in school and, if you don’t learn it, you become a slave to money.”

“Too many people are too focused on money and not on their greatest wealth, their education.”

“If people are prepared to be flexible, keep an open mind and learn, they will grow richer and richer despite tough changes.”

“If you think money will solve problems, you will have a rough ride. Intelligence solves problems and produces money. Money without financial intelligence is money soon gone.”

“Most people fail to realize that in life, it’s not how much money you make. It’s how much money you keep.”

“If you want to be rich, you need to be financially literate.”

Recommended: Reading Book Quotes

“If you are going to build the Empire State Building, the first thing you need to do is dig a deep hole and pour a strong foundation. If you are going to build a home in the suburbs, all you need to do is pour a six-inch slab of concrete. Most people, in their drive to get rich, are trying to build an Empire State Building on a six-inch slab.”

“Accounting is possibly the most confusing, boring subject in the world, but if you want to be rich long-term, it could be the most important subject.”

“An asset puts money in my pocket. A liability takes money out of my pocket.”

“Illiteracy, both in words and numbers, is the foundation of financial struggle. If people are having difficulties financially, there is something that they don’t understand, either in words or numbers.”

“In financial reporting, reading numbers is looking for the plot, the story of where the cash is flowing.”

“It is the cash flow that tells the story of how a person handles their money.”

“Money only accentuates the cash-flow pattern running in your head. If your pattern is to spend everything you get, most likely an increase in cash will just result in an increase in spending. Thus, the saying, “A fool and his money is one big party.”

“What is missing from their education is not how to make money, but how to manage money. It’s called financial aptitude—what you do with the money once you make it, how to keep people from taking it from you, how to keep it longer, and how to make that money work hard for you.”

“Most people don’t understand why they struggle financially because they don’t understand cash flow. A person can be highly educated, professionally successful, and financially illiterate. These people often work harder than they need to because they learned how to work hard, but not how to have their money work hard for them.”

Charming Falls Apart by Angela Terry Book Quotes

“What attracted you to your current job? What do you like about your job? What don’t you like? What do people tell you you’re good at? What do you do in your free time as opposed to the nine-to-five? If you’re still at a loss, then make a list of what you liked to do as a child! What did you dream your life would look like?”

Most Anticipated Books of October 2020

Read it in Flexi Reads App.

1. Among the Beasts and Briars

Author: Ashley Poston

Publication Date: October 20, 2020

Cerys is safe in the kingdom of Aloriya.

Here there are no droughts, disease, or famine, and peace is everlasting. It has been this way for hundreds of years, since the first king made a bargain with the Lady who ruled the forest that borders the kingdom. But as Aloriya prospered, the woods grew dark, cursed, and forbidden. Cerys knows this all too well: when she was young, she barely escaped as the woods killed her friends and her mother. Now Cerys carries a small bit of the curse—the magic—in her blood, a reminder of the day she lost everything. The most danger she faces now, as a gardener’s daughter, is the annoying fox who stalks the royal gardens and won’t leave her alone.

As a new queen is crowned, however, things long hidden in the woods descend on the kingdom itself. Cerys is forced on the run, her only companions the small fox from the garden, a strange and powerful bear, and the magic in her veins. It’s up to her to find the legendary Lady of the Wilds and beg for a way to save her home. But the road is darker and more dangerous than she knows, and as secrets from the past are uncovered amid the teeth and roots of the forest, it’s going to take everything she has just to survive.

2. Hush

Author: Dylan Farrow

Publication Date: October 6

They use magic to silence the world. Who will break the hush?

Seventeen-year-old Shae has led a seemingly quiet life, joking with her best friend Fiona, and chatting with Mads, the neighborhood boy who always knows how to make her smile. All while secretly keeping her fears at bay… Of the disease that took her brother’s life. Of how her dreams seem to bleed into reality around her. Of a group of justice seekers called the Bards who claim to use the magic of Telling to keep her community safe.

When her mother is murdered, she can no longer pretend.

Not knowing who to trust, Shae journeys to unlock the truth, instead finding a new enemy keen to destroy her, a brooding boy with dark secrets, and an untold power she never thought possible.

3. The Once and Future Witches

Author: Alix E. Harrow

Publication Date: October 13, 2020

In 1893, there’s no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild, dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.

But when the Eastwood sisters–James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth, and Beatrice Belladonna–join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to pursue the forgotten words and ways that might turn the women’s movement into the witch’s movement. Stalked by shadows and sickness, hunted by forces who will not suffer a witch to vote-and perhaps not even to live-the sisters will need to delve into the oldest magics, draw new alliances, and heal the bond between them if they want to survive.

There’s no such thing as witches. But there will be.

4. Plain Bad Heroines

Author: Emily M. Danforth

Publication Date: October 13, 2020

Our story begins in 1902, at The Brookhants School for Girls. Flo and Clara, two impressionable students, are obsessed with each other and with a daring young writer named Mary MacLane, the author of a scandalous bestselling memoir. To show their devotion to Mary, the girls establish their own private club and call it The Plain Bad Heroine Society. They meet in secret in a nearby apple orchard, the setting of their wildest happiness and, ultimately, of their macabre deaths. This is where their bodies are later discovered with a copy of Mary’s book splayed beside them, the victims of a swarm of stinging, angry yellow jackets. Less than five years later, The Brookhants School for Girls closes its doors forever—but not before three more people mysteriously die on the property, each in a most troubling way.Over a century later, the now abandoned and crumbling Brookhants is back in the news when wunderkind writer, Merritt Emmons, publishes a breakout book celebrating the queer, feminist history surrounding the “haunted and cursed” Gilded-Age institution. Her bestselling book inspires a controversial horror film adaptation starring celebrity actor and lesbian it girl Harper Harper playing the ill-fated heroine Flo, opposite B-list actress and former child star Audrey Wells as Clara. But as Brookhants opens its gates once again, and our three modern heroines arrive on set to begin filming, past and present become grimly entangled—or perhaps just grimly exploited—and soon it’s impossible to tell where the curse leaves off and Hollywood begins.

A story within a story within a story and featuring black-and-white period illustrations,Plain Bad Heroines is a devilishly haunting, modern masterwork of metafiction that manages to combine the ghostly sensibility of Sarah Waters with the dark imagination of Marisha Pessl and the sharp humor and incisive social commentary of Curtis Sittenfeld into one laugh-out-loud funny, spellbinding, and wonderfully luxuriant read.

5. We Were Restless Things

Author: Cole Nagamatsu

Publication Date: October 6, 2020

Last summer, Link Miller drowned on dry land in the woods, miles away from the nearest body of water. His death was ruled a strange accident, and in the months since, his friends and family have struggled to make sense of it. But Link’s close friend Noemi Amato knows the truth: Link drowned in an impossible lake that only she can find. And what’s more, someone claiming to be Link has been contacting her, warning Noemi to stay out of the forest.

As these secrets become too heavy for Noemi to shoulder on her own, she turns to Jonas, her new housemate, and Amberlyn, Link’s younger sister. All three are trying to find their place—and together, they start to unravel the truth: about themselves, about the world, and about what happened to Link.

Unfolding over a year and told through multiple POVs and a dream journal, We Were Restless Things explores the ways society shapes our reality, how we can learn to love ourselves and others, and the incredible power of our own desires.
