"Getting rich begins with the right mindset,
the right words and the right plan."

you´ve got to transform your spirit from poor to rich."

Have you read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki?
It is a great book if you want to gain control of your financial future.
It is a book about taking responsibility of your financial affairs and improving your wealth by mastering money.
This is not a book about getting rich quickly.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is a true story on the lessons about money that Robert Kiyosaki, the author learned from his two "Dads". One Dad, a PhD and Superintendent of Education never had enough money at the end of the month and died broke.
His other Dad dropped out of school at age 13 and went to become one of the wealthiest men in Hawaii.
In Rich Dad Poor Dad, Robert explains how to make money work hard for you instead of you working hard for money.
There is an old cliché that goes, "¨Job is an acronym for `Just Over Broke.`" And unfortunately, I would say that the saying applies to millions of people. Because school does not think financial intelligence is an intelligence, most workers "live within their means." They work and they pay the bills.
There is another horrible management theory that goes, "Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won´t quit." And if you look at the pay scales of most companies, again I would say there is a degree of truth in the statement.
The result is that most workers never get ahead. They do what they´ve been taught to do; "Get a secure job." Most workers focus on working for pay and benefits that reward them in the short term, but is often disastrous in the long term.
Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the "Rat Race."
Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of bill paying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiously, but come tomorrow morning, they´ll still be in the same cage: great job.

I recommend reading this book.
It is easy to read and it is filled with key messages.
