Hang on tight… because this isn’t going to be your typical job seeking advice.
I’m going to reveal a little-known piece of wisdom that when used correctly could lead to your wildest dreams coming true.
Don’t worry, this isn’t some get rich quick scheme.
These are tried and true practices documented by Robert Kiyosaki, the best-selling author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
If you want to create success and wealth in your life, then Robert is “The Guy” to follow.
And the three pieces of his wisdom that I’m about to share with you have the power to significantly increase your income, as well as lead to the happy and fulfilling life you deserve.
The 3-Step Income-Boosting Approach
Now, let’s get into the 3-step income-boosting approach (it could make you rich):
1. Get Out Of The Matrix
Most of us think were brought up to believe that the purpose of a job is to earn a living…
But what if I told you that was completely backwards? (If you want to become rich, that is.)
According to Robert Kiyosaki, the idea of being able to create wealth and success by working for someone else is a scam.
This shocked me a bit when I first read it, but then I looked carefully at his argument.
First, it’s about the numbers. Percentage-wise, employees pay significantly more taxes than the owner of the business they’re working for.
Any raise achieved will usually only be enough to keep up with the rising cost of living, while at the same time leading to paying higher taxes.
Second, as an employee, you’re limited to trading your hours for dollars. If you want to make more, you have work more – and there’s only so much time you can trade.
You have no leverage, which is a favorite tool of the wealthy.
So, the simple truth of the matter is that they system was not designed for employees to get rich.
What you really need to do is…
2. Work To Learn, Not To Earn
This is the real purpose of working for other people.
Use any job you get as a training ground that pays the bills, and develops your skills to the point of mastering whatever it is you do.
Accept that you’ll never become wealthy working there, because that’s okay.
You can create a good life for yourself while developing the valuable skills you need to…
3. Beat The System
How do you win? How do you create wealth and success in your life?
Use the skills you develop at your job to become the business owner, where you have 2 main advantages over any employee out there:
- Tax advantages
- Leverage – as a business owner, you can leverage systems and other people’s time to create better results than you could on your own.
Now, the real glue that holds this entire approach together is following a proven formula for getting the right job… The job that will teach you everything you need to know, develop your skills, and make for an enjoyable journey on your path to wealth.
You’re not the first person to do this, and you won’t be the last. So find others who have succeeded at what you want to do, and use their wisdom to take the shortcut to success on your journey.
And if you need a little help, then here’s a free video I put together with my mentor – the man whose wisdom helped me get the job that started me on this path.
It shares 3 highly valuable job-seeking tips and some additional insight into the best types of companies to work for.
Cheers to your success!
