Escaping the rat race is the farthest
thing from an average mind. Sadly, only a few from the majority of the population
figured out how to escape the rat race. Those that did escape, understood how
their time is precious. They understood the way we spend our time defines who we
are and how we live. Take a look of how many people get themselves into this
so-called rat race. This may very well be your very current life being depicted
here. Here we have a child who is born raised and couple years later he goes to
school. The proud parents are excited because the child excels gets fair –
good grades and is accepted into a college. The child graduates perhaps goes
to a graduate school and does exactly as programmed afterwards – looks for a safe
and secure job. This child now as an adult finds that job maybe as a doctor
or a professor or joins the army or works for the government,
but now as an adult, money is finally being made. Having money to burn the
young adult goes to places where other young people like to hang out. They meet
people, they date, and sometimes they get married. Life is wonderful now because
today both of them work with decent income. They feel successful! Their future
looks bright and they decide to buy a house, a car, a television,take vacations
and eventually start to have children. They achieved the perfect life bundle
and it seems perfect. Except without realizing it. They caught themselves in
the discrete notorious rat race and so comes the greater demand for money that
grows bigger every month and every year. The happy couple decides
that their careers are vitally important and begins to work harder. Seeking
promotions and raises. The raises come and so does another child and a need for
a bigger house. They work harder, become better employees and become even more
dedicated. They go back to school just to get more specialized skills so they can
earn more money. Maybe they take a second job. Their
incomes go up. But so does the real estate taxes on their new large home and
their Social Security taxes and all the other taxes. They get their large
paycheck and wonder after a while where all that money went. Now their children
reach five or six years of age. The need to save for college for that increases
as well as the need to save for their retirement.
exhausted, having to wake up early, get up to work, finish that 9:00 to 5:00, punch
out, come back home and crash and repeat. For this is the same cycle for about
five days a week Wishing along that next weekend would
just come faster! This is the life of an average educated hard-working person.
This is the path of the rat race trapping the happy couple for the rest
of their working lives, working for the owners of their company, for the
government paying taxes and for the bank paying off a mortgage and credit cards.
What’s astonishing most families work from January to mid-may for the
government just to cover their taxes! Perhaps the biggest surprise is that
they advise your own children to the only study hard, get good grades and find
a safe job or a career. Many of times leaving them with little financial
education so their kids will work hard all their lives. This rat race continues
on into another hard-working generation Despite of all of that, is there a way to
escape the rat race? According to one of Robert Kiyosaki’s book called Rich Dad
Poor Dad, yes! There is! This man who has been living in financial freedom
explains that there’s hope for those that are tired, who are willing to get
out of the rat race. I’ll say this there isn’t a magic formula to jump out of it
but there are proper skills that will be required to prove your proficiency of
both accounting and investing. Arguably two of the most difficult subjects to
master. But there is hope for learning how to achieve financial freedom by
changing your own perspective to that who has been successful. As mentioned
before in the book Rich Dad Poor Dad majority of the people’s
lives are controlled forever by two emotions. Fear and Greed. This will keep
them to get up for work, focusing solely on paying their bills in an ongoing
continuous cycle. Sadly, people will always believe this will always be their
reality. I highly advise you to check out the breakdown and quick explanation of
the Rich Dad Poor Dad in this animated book review I did here. Escaping the rat
race, Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad mentored him with great lessons like focusing on
investing into assets, minimizing liabilities, understanding the difference
between active income and passive income. Realized this. You could be in the rat
race that’s preventing you to see the bigger picture of your life’s potential!
Ask yourself. How long will you be in the rat race? I say get out! Your time is now! If you enjoy what you just saw, don’t
