Rich Dad Lesson #1: The Rich Don’t Work for Money

Have you ever run out of money before you ran out of month? That is because you have too many expenses and not enough income. It has been a struggle of mine many times while in college. Many of you might be feeling this issue every month. To increase your income, you must learn how money works, and make it start working for you.
The rich use money as a tool to produce more income. The second step of the process of learning is seeing money differently. We all get 24 hrs. a day, and nothing can change that. The question is what tools are you using daily to assist you in gaining your wealth? Are you using all your 24 hrs. and all your physical efforts in the day to work for money? There is nothing wrong with this, if you take your money and put it to work.
Think of yourself as the foreman at a job site, and your dollar bills are you work force. They are either going to work hard and build you a wonderful skyscraper, or they are going to sit around and waste your time and lose you money.
The trick in becoming wealthy is simple: keep some of what you earn and invest it so that it may grow!
