Losers love excuses.
They love excuses because it lets them ignore the problems that they need to address and provides them an out for not taking action, even when they know that they should.
Unfortunately, we have all made excuses in order to avoid taking an honest look at our circumstances. We’ve all opted to take the easy path at one time or another and sometimes that lack of action has led us to a dead end—a place where we have to learn to live with our poor choices. However, on other occasions, we have been given a second chance—an opportunity to make things right.
When it comes to their financial future, too many people have been making excuses for too long. They have told themselves, they are either too old, too young, don’t have enough money, etc. as a way to put off taking action and doing something about their future. They have ignored the markets. They have turned a blind-eye to government shenanigans. They have been quick to dismiss signs that point to a financial collapse. Fortunately, all these signs have set the stage for those who are prepared to make a change.
To help everyone put away their excuses and recognize their opportunity, Robert Kiyosaki recently released, Second Chance: For Your Money, Your Life and Our World. In his book, Robert dissects a number of topics that are affecting our financial future whether we are willing to admit it or not. In it, he points out, “Most people only see chaos or crisis in an emergency.” He knows that an emergency is also were opportunity lies.
So how do you take hold of your second chance? While the answer encompasses more than can be discussed here, a simple three-step formula will help you along the path.
This formula is only a starting point and you need to couple it with action. However, if you are serious about increasing your financial education so you are prepared to take your second chance, the resources available in the “You Can Choose to Be Rich” course on RichDadWorld.com, as well as the help of a coach can assist you in capitalizing on this moment.
