8 habits to be rich | Being a Rich Dad Advisor to Robert Kiyosaki

Here are 8 habits you need to learn in order to become rich.

You might already know, Robert Kiyosaki and I have been friends since 1980. We’ve been working together ever since. I’m going to tell you what he’s really like, and the real story of the experience of being his advisor. 

1. Be an insatiable student. 

Robert is an adamant student. He studies things intently. 

We show up having already studied the information – Why? Because we want to be prepared and have an edge over others around us. 

2. Know it’s not for the faint of heart.

You’ve got to be ready for immediate and direct feedback – not only from Robert, but from any advisor.

Who do you hang around with? If you want to be successful, you have to hang around with people who tell you the truth. 

If you’re going to be rich, you need to be able to take direct, unabridged, unbiased feedback. And when you get that feedback, whether you agree with it or not, shut up and listen to it. 

 

 

3. Hang around people smarter than you. 

My team is composed of the smartest people I’ve ever met, and any advisor will tell you they are fortunate to be a part of their team. Why? Because they are consistent students, and they’re always learning and getting smarter every day. 

4. Expect random phone calls. 

At any time of day, the phone could ring with one of the other advisors asking you a question or giving feedback. 

This random phone call could make a difference in your life, which is why you should always be ready to receive it. 

5. Be your best at all times.

There is no downtime, whether you’re on stage, a guest on a podcast, or with a client – no matter what, strive to be your best. If you’re in action, there’s no slack to be had whatsoever. 

Never settle for second best. 

The wealth of each advisor is linked to another advisor in the group, and you can’t let your team down.

6. Network

The network of the advisors is sacred. I’m not going to do anything in business without running it by one of them. Why recreate the wheel when your friends are your advisors? Do you have those kinds of trustworthy people in your midst? 

7. Be generous. 

What is Robert Kiyosaki like? 

He’s very generous with his time, wealth, and knowledge. What he does for others in terms of education and contributions is amazing. If he feels he can trust you, the door is always open. 

In your midst, do you have that level of trust? 

Are people willing to do whatever it takes to support you, and are you willing to support them in return? 

8. Have fun. 

If you can’t laugh, you have no business being an entrepreneur. You’ve got to have fun and make light of things. That fun comes from the passion of entrepreneurship and the passion of being who we want to be. 

Getting Rich

On your road to becoming an entrepreneur, don’t forget to challenge yourself, educate yourself, and hold yourself accountable. Remember that you can only learn more, never less. 

How to Earn Respect and Trust from People Immediately

In your ascent to building a great business, you’ve got to learn how to earn respect and trust from people quickly. 

If you don’t command trust and respect from someone early on, they’re gone. You’ve got anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes to make or break it – and knowing how to establish trust is one of the most nerve-wracking things for a salesperson and a leader.

You’re nervous, they’re skeptical – and it only takes seconds to make a judgment. 

That creates the perfect storm to fail… And now you won’t, not after you read this. 

7 Ways to Earn Respect and Trust

Here are 7 ways to earn trust that will work in any situation, at any time. 

1. Go into their world first.

Don’t immediately try to sell them something. Go into their world and show that you’re interested by asking lots of questions. By doing this, you’re creating an environment in which they can trust you. 

2. Spend time acknowledging them.

Don’t blow smoke, because people know when that’s happening. Instead, be sincere. Always remember your body language and facial expressions. Faking it will never work, so acknowledge people from the heart. 

3. Earn the right. 

People want to know why they should listen to you, and why they should trust you – so you’ve got to earn the right. You can do that by establishing your credibility early on and sharing the honest reason as to why you’re there. This allows people to get to know you through transparency. 

4. Ask for permission. 

Always preface anything new by asking for permission. It’s common courtesy, and that courtesy will register within people’s heads. 

5. Be honest and vulnerable. 

Don’t pretend you’re someone that you’re not – be 100% honest and 100% vulnerable at all times. 

6. Never, ever trash a competitor.

All this does is send the message that you’re a complainer. Use responsible language instead of blaming others and making excuses. 

7. Make agreements for the purpose of keeping that agreement later.

Now, that person sees you did what you said you were going to do. You’re building a track record that says you keep your promises. This sets you apart from everyone else and earns you respect. 

There should be no reason why your nervousness prevents you from making a sale. And there should be no reason why it prevents people from seeing the real you, because at the end of the day, that’s what people want to see. 

Establish the trust and respect that you deserve. Go out there and be amazing. 

It takes conscious effort to follow each of the 7 ways to establish trust and respect. There is always this little voice inside your head that is telling you to do otherwise.

You can choose to be the master of that Little Voice inside you that casts doubt and makes you question yourself.

8 Things You Should NOT Do to Succeed in Business

If you want to start, grow, or scale a business, this could be the most important article you read this year. These are tricky details that have the potential to trip you up and cause a lot of struggle when starting, building, and scaling a business. 

Let me put it to you straight. 

If you avoid the 8 points below, you will have even more control over your outcome, be better able to achieve your goals, and be admired by your friends, family, and peers as they watch you ascend into your own personal greatness. 

What’s more… 

If you ignore these details, you might find yourself under the thumb of your business, find it difficult (or impossible) to achieve your goals, and you might find resistance and discouragement from your friends and family as your peers laugh at you behind your back.

8 Things You Should NOT Do To Start, Grow, or Scale a Business.

1. Don’t be a person that has no ‘why.’ 

You need to have a great reason as to why you want to create your business. If you’re getting your business started in order to be financially free – that’s a good reason. It shouldn’t be your only reason, however. 

2. Don’t go in without a plan.

Having a goal, wish, or a vision isn’t the same thing as having a plan. These things provide a mission to get excited about, but you need a roadmap detailing how you’re going to get there.

3. Don’t be without advisors. 

Advisors are people to converse with who have expertise in an area relevant to you. You are not an island – the thought that you’ve got to do everything on your own will stop you from reaching out for support, and that’s something you cannot do. 

4. Don’t avoid being a student. 

Have a student mindset. Research all that you can. You don’t have to be an expert, but you should be excited over what you’re doing business about. 

5. Don’t begin without an idea of how to scale your business. 

From the very beginning, you should have an idea on how to see as much growth as possible without collapse. 

6. Don’t be averse to being on a team. 

You need to start with a team. Take on a project that there’s no way you can do it by yourself. If you’re not a team player, become one. In order to be an entrepreneur, this is something you need to do. 

7. Don’t avoid making mistakes.

There are times that you will be embarrassed, make mistakes, and times when you’ll need to change quickly. You have to learn to develop a thick skin and roll with the punches. Keep moving, don’t stop and contemplate your mistake – just continue your upward track. 

8. Never consider quitting as your first option. 

If quitting is your first option, it becomes a habit. Once you start confronting hardships instead of running away from them, you’re going to get superb at that confrontation. 

At the end of the day, if you can avoid these 8 ‘don’ts,’ you will become the person you want to become, whether your business succeeds or fails

You will also gain more control over your outcomes, rather than being controlled by external forces. 

Plus… you just might find yourself as an authority in your space. Imagine people looking up to you as a pillar of success and security. Let’s face it, it beats the alternative. 

Before you go any farther, be honest with yourself as I ask you a couple of questions… 

Does money elude you? Is Success a fleeting wish? 

Are you still waiting for a “breakthrough” in your life?

Would you feel uncomfortable if you suddenly became rich and famous?

If you said, “Yes” to any of those questions, the Self-Sabotage Eliminator can help you eliminate any subconscious problems in your life that interfere with you attaining your long-standing goals in minutes…

… For good.

6 Things You Should NEVER Do If you Want to Win in Business or in Life

Here are 6 things you should never do if you want to win – in every sense of the word. 

1. Never tell your mentor: “I know that.” 

If someone is taking the time to show you the ropes, they’ve clearly got the experience it takes to do that. To this person, you should never say, “I know that” or “I’ve tried that” in regards to something they’re trying to teach you. Even if you actually have tried what they’re suggesting and it didn’t work, you still need to take the time to listen. 

Hear it differently this time. Ask questions. Be open and receptive so you can get new ideas, be included in great investments, and be a part of great opportunities. 

2. Wait 60 seconds to respond to something upsetting.

If you can wait longer than 60 seconds, that’s ideal. If you don’t respond right away, you’ll find that your quality of response will be 100 times better. If you respond right away, your emotions are high and your intelligence is low. 

3. Never gossip about other people. 

No matter who you’re with or if you think you’re safe, don’t do it. In sales, we’re taught never to trash our competition to a customer because doing so is in poor taste. Not only that – what goes around comes around.

The second reason not to trash others is because putting others down is no way to build yourself up. 

If you avoid talking poorly about others, you become someone that people trust with confidential information. 

4. Don’t compare yourself to others. 

By comparing yourself, you cut your energy and effectiveness in half because you’re focusing on what another party is doing and letting their actions guide your decisions. 

Remember that there’s no one out there like you, no one with exactly your experience.

You need to spend time learning to like yourself and building your self-esteem. Comparing your wealth, your position, your effectiveness… all of those things will kill you. 

5. Never let someone else determine your mood. 

There’s only one person that can make you feel bad, and that’s you. If you believe the bad things that people say about you, that’s on you. It can be hard not to take these things to heart, but it’s a skill that you have to learn. 

You’re the one who manufactures your mood. 

6. Never make a sizable investment for a brochure or an ad. 

Make sure to have due diligence. Get experience with whoever you’re buying from and look into what they do. Get a referral. Don’t go into something blindly just because an ad looks enticing. 

Bonus – Three Things TO Do

Here are three things TO do in order to win:

  1. Boost your self-esteem. 
  2. Be a goal-setter
  3. Be grateful 

If you follow these tips, you will be able to walk into a room as your best self every single time – and you will see success both in business and in your life. 

Wait.

No matter how much you follow the tips I have, things will not always be a walk in the park.

There are times when you think you can’t do it. You are sabotaging yourself.

The annoying  “Little Voice” in your head will tell you you are tired, you need to stop, you’re not good enough.

Will you listen to the annoying voice in your head?

The Fastest Way To Destroy Your Business

When I talk to trainers and entrepreneurs, I don’t think it would surprise you to know that they have no intention to destroy their business. In fact most want the same sort of things. And those things generally boil down to consistent revenue and what they revenue could bring them. 

What that DOESN’T mean is hope and theory of what could work. Any success entrepreneur knows business hinges on real-world situations and lessons learned.

THEORY could destroy your business…And fast!

(keep reading…)


Business training and education should be actionable, real world advice from people who have been there hands-on.

It’s not right that business schools and many “Guru” Trainers charge an arm and a leg, and CLAIM to educate when they ACTUALLY teach you things you should NEVER do in business.

Let me tell you… they are NOT teaching you how to succeed.

Here’s my vision of the future: A completely new and different education system that focuses on entrepreneurs teaching others how to be better entrepreneurs. 

Why?

Our current education system has failed, proven by the fact that most businesses (about 95%) go under within the first 3-5 years of getting off the ground. The reason why these businesses fail is because schools don’t teach you how to succeed. All the information they provide you with is theoretical, when business hinges on real-world situations and lessons learned.

In fact, in my opinion, schools teach you what NOT to do in business. 

– MID

Many put forth the idea of poor communication, not being responsible, and avoiding collaboration. The truth is that entrepreneurs teaching other entrepreneurs how to succeed would do so individually — not in a school-type setting, as that type of setting clearly emphasizes the wrong values and business tactics. 

The school setting is old news when it comes to entrepreneurship. That environment is not the environment of life. 

You know an entrepreneur when you meet one because of their grit and ability to stand back up when they get knocked down. Those are skills that can’t be taught in a conventional school setting, as made obvious by the slew of businesses that fail to succeed every year. 

I once got a great piece of information from my friend, Pung, who started a company called DHL International. He said to me: It’s a business owner’s responsibility, not their duty, to teach what they know — otherwise, when his business goes away, his secrets go with him, and all of that information is lost. 

Imagine an education system where the business is the school, because every day in business you learn lesson after lesson. 

And then ask yourself: Who is teaching these lessons? Life? No, all life is doing is providing you with the situation, the problem, and opportunity to find a way through it. 

The teacher is not life, instead it should be the business owner — the entrepreneur. 

An entrepreneur has the skills to teach other entrepreneurs how to succeed in the business world, and in order to keep the circle of life flowing, they should share those skills.

That’s my vision for business education in the future. 

Now, I want you to think about something regarding your business. 

Imagine… What if people loved your brand so much that they’d get into bidding wars for the opportunity to work with you… just because it’s you?

Picture this… What if they were willing to jump through all kinds of hoops (not that it’s necessary, but they’d be willing to) just because they had that much respect for what you’re doing?

And… How would you feel if you were recognized as a leader in your market, niche, or industry for the incredible impact you are able to deliver to the marketplace?

The time is now to embrace the dream that’s been tugging at you.

Do you feel it?

It’s the dream that there’s more for you.

And that’s why I created THIS… it’s for “Next Level” Entrepreneurs like you >>

Unpopular Opinions on Creating Teams that Win

You won’t walk alone if you want to be successful… You need a great team who will support your mission. A force to help you thrive.

There are unpopular tactics that get overlooked when it comes to selecting people for your winning team. Buckle up, get ready for controversy, and read until the end. 

1. Don’t hire your family out of convenience. 

There are times when including your family on your team will benefit you. However, it’s not going to work if you’re doing it out of expediency.(Keep Reading)

 

 

You’ll fall into the trap of being treated like family instead of business equals if you hire them to save money and not because of their expertise.

Things get uncomfortable. 

Remember… The rules of business are different from the rules of family. 

Look for people who are the right fit for your team. Not because they’re an easy hire, not because they’re close, not because hiring them can save you money, but because you see eye-to-eye with them when it comes to business. 

2. Don’t just hire for skill. 

While having skill is important, it’s not the only quality a valued team member should have. The people you hire should have an innate desire to learn, mental discipline, and the right attitude for the job. 

Hire them for their personal vision, who they are, and how they can help your company instead of simply on the basis of what they can do.

3. Only hire when you need to.

Technology can do a lot of the work for you as it continues to advance. There will be times when you don’t need to hire people. 

Take social media, for example. 

You can create a community easily, spreading your message with a few simple taps. Future customers will find you, listen, comment, and become a part of your mission. 

 

Some of these customers from social media might even become a part of your team. Maybe they sell for you or donate intellectual property, which allows them to join your ventures and build your community. That’s called a movement, a form of a team that doesn’t involve hiring people. 

4. Everyone should be selling.

If the people you hire aren’t directly generating income for your business, think twice about the necessity of their role. The wages you pay employees can be viewed as a business expense, and when expenses go out, there should always be money coming in. 

If people that you hire don’t know how to sell, they should be willing to learn if they want to join your team. 

5. Hire people who are willing to grow.

If you’re interviewing someone for a position and they say something along the lines of, “I already know that,” be wary. This usually means that part of their brain is closed off. 

The thing is — maybe they are familiar with what you’re talking about, but a good team member is always hungry for more information that will help them grow. They will ask follow-up questions to learn more because they’re curious.

Thrive and Succeed, Together

Following these tips will put you on the path to creating a multi-million dollar team that will consistently generate income. Keep them in mind, and your business is sure to see success. 

Now, your mission and your team’s mission may not be the same. Getting clear on your mission will bring your team together

You see, a great team needs to play the same game. For long lasting success, everyone on the team should be working in the same direction.  Click here for a short training about getting your mission clear >>
