Rich Dad Poor Dad

I came across this book on my computer about a year ago, but i wasn't really interested in reading it. Until this week, when a very sweet neighbor of mine, ttony gave me the PDF format of the book and told me i had to read it. I'm grateful he did. I would like to share a few things i learnt in the book. I'll try to be as brief as possible.

LESSONS LEARNED..
1. TALENT ISN'T ALWAYS ENOUGH.
Our world is full of untalented rich men, yet the people who have the true talents are at the bottom. Dying of financial illiteracy. Robert Kiyosaki, in his book gives a few wonderful illustrations of how talent isn't always enough. Read the book to find out more.
2. YOU NEED TO HAVE GOOD COMMUNICATION, SELLING AND MARKETING SKILLS TO SURVIVE.
You might have great talents, but if you don't have these three skills, you're really not going anywhere. If you write a book so well, and you don't market the book well to sell it, your book will die on the shelf. 
3.MORE MONEY DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
More money always means more spending and more taxes and more debt and more liabilities. Learn to save and invest from an early age.
4. KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIABILITIES AND ASSETS.
Liabilities take money from your pocket.
Assets put money into your pocket.
Liabilities usually take the form of luxuries, like cars and big houses.
5.TODAY A READER, TOMORROW A LEADER.
Reading thit book has made me come to understand a number of financial and important things which would be of help to me, tomorrow. The more you read books, the more you become versatile in subjects, the more your scope widens, the more advantage you have over your peers.
BONUS LESSON -SELF DOUBT CAN BE A KILLER.
There's always a cynical part of people which always doubts. That low confidence part. One could have a wonderful piece of work or idea, but because of self doubt, or fear of criticism, that idea is never executed.

But i still believe God can do marvelous things
