I want to talk about what you should do with your life. Specifically, if you should attend school or higher education. I Think I also want to speak about some goals that you might have and the best way to becoming rich.
Should you go to college or university? That decision really comes down to you. What the school system is set up for is to help train highly qualified people to enter the work force. This does not extend to those who wish to create jobs, but to those looking to get jobs.
Robert Kiyosaki’s book talks about the cashflow quadrant which is broken down quite simply.
The picture on the bottom half of the book is a visual of each quadrant. Each quadrant represents a different place in someone’s life. If you desire to become rich, you must begin to think in the right side of the quadrants. If your happy just getting by or being just over broke (JOB) then the left side might be for you.
You first have to break down what it is that you want in life. How do you want to be of service and how can you make that happen. The book talks about a D
Soon the D
In the B quadrant, the Dentist now hires other dentist and management to work for him. He is now able to leave the office for a few months and come back and things will continue to run smoothly.
The I quadrant is where you take all your earnings from any source and invest it to grow. This can be anything like real estate, bitcoin, stocks, businesses, or gold among other investment types. This is where you put your money to work for you creating infinite returns.
So if you decide you want to become a D
A marketer might go to school and learn all about marketing. To further their skills they will get a job as a marketer for a company. To expand further they might consider starting a marketing business. Later they will want to cause that business to be automated with a system of staffing and programs. They will then take a portion of their earnings and put it towards investments. This will start the snowball of their money working for them as they progress.
Many people are able to do this without going to school. Starting a business does not necessarily have to cost a lot of money to start up. But if your in a job that is not progressing you towards your end goal you need to find a job that will give you the skills to get where you want to be.
Maybe you don’t know what it is that you want to do with your life. That’s okay too. Be something that can make you a decent amount of money and give you time to think about what it is, for me that was trucking. Beyond that, you might consider trying a bunch of different things until you find what it is that you love.
I think to be fulfilled you’ll want to consider how you might serve people. Someone might serve people in construction work building roads for people. Someone else might serve others by being a nurse and washing someones back.
I don’t think there is a wrong path necessarily but if you desire to become rich that path is simply broken down to the cashflow quadrants. There are a million ways to get there and the best way is to find something you’re passionate about and can consistently do to bring value to others. I think its all about service. How may I be of service to you?
