''robert Kiyosaki'' And The Road To 'forbes',how Possible?

So much has been said about Robert Kiyosaki's inability

to enter Forbes[the World's Rich List].This keeps people

wondering if this man is 'real' because despite his

claim of knowing much about wealth creation and

all that,he is yet to enter Forbes.

These things I am still wondering.I am a big fan of this

great guy,I have learnt a great lot from his numerous

and wonderful teachings.

What do you think?

Robert kiyosaki is a great financial teacher nd he is also rich from what i know. So as to whether he is in forbes magazine or not is not a measure of his practicality of what he teaches. He is a great mentor nd inspiration. His teachings are wonders to ones financial freedow. Luv him. Forbes or not, he is great!

First of all, Robert has never claimed to be a billionaire so dont expect him on that list.

Infact, in his book with Donald Trump, Why We Want You To Be Rich, he talked about the tension he had when he was meeting The Donald. He said he feels he didnt deserve to write a book with him as he is just a millionaire and Donald is a billionaire.

Robert has never shown you how to be a billionaire. He teaches how to be financially free.

He walks his talk.

And in one of his books he said: 'Mind Your Business'

I think you guys are missing something here. Robert Kiyosaki is a realestate investor, not just an author who write books.

Robert Kiyosaki has influence so many people to change their thoughts from negativity to positivity with regard to wealth. I think this is what is important to us.

Forbes is just an organization. So, it shouldn't create any concern weather his name is there or not.

Remember that you have to be the best that you can be.

I think Robert Kiyosaki is not worried that his name is not on Forbes.

Robert Kiyosaki has been an object of criticism but it's ok. I have been following kiyosaki's teachings and this is what i have to say. How can a man help others become rich when he is not rich himself. I am financially independent today is because of his teachings. Robert himself said he prefers to keep his companies private because it gives him maximum flexibility. So don't expect him on the Forbes list, same goes for Mike Adenuga.

I LOVE YOUR TREND.

BUT JUST TO CLARIFY YOU THAT FORBES RATING IS BASED ON FACT AND THE FACT WILL BE GOTTEN FROM EXCHANGE COMMISSIONS.

FOR EXAMPLE YOU MAY HAVE A COMPANY QUOTED ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE, THAT IS WHERE FORBES GETS THE WORTH OF YOUR COMPANY FROM, BUT I MAY HAVE A COMPANY WORTH MORE THAT YOUR OWN COMPANY, BUT BECAUSE ITS NOT QUOTED I MAY NOT BE RATED.

Please hear it from the horse's mouth:

"We go to school to learn to work hard for money. I write books and create products that teach people how to have money work hard for them".

I am not sure if I am correct Forbes basically have list of world Billionaires. Some of these guys are Millionaires or decamillionaires. Which is a lot of money, from Forbes record Dangote is worth about 3.3Billion dollars actually he is worth much more than that. Is Adenuga on forbes list, is he wealthy? So it is not all wealthy people that are on Forbes list.

Bishop Oyedepo has 3 jets and his third is the latest Boeing own by very few people in the world. Forbes measures people's wealth by the value of their stock in their countries stock exchange, so if your company is not listed on the stock exchange there is no way forbes is going to know your worth. Robert kiyosak is mega rich, Pastor sam is mega rich.

There is a great difference between ideology and reality.

Note this.Ideologists don't care how it works - they just

deliver the burning ideas and feel it must work.They don't

care if they are making millions or billions.Their pleasure

lies in motivating others - they love to influence the way

people think,they change the world.

This is where they feel their calling or talents lie.There are

political,social,financial,economic,or spiritual ideologists.

Robert Kiyosaki happens to be ones of them.

Take a look at some of the world's most influential professional

speakers like Zig Ziglar,Jim Rohn,Anthony Robbins,Brian Tracy,

Stephen Covey and so on.Are these guys ''really'' affluent?

Stephen Covey,author of The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People

has sold more than 15million copies of that book and the book is in

about 38 language! But come to think of it,is he in Forbes[the World Rich

List].He is not,and he doesn't care that much[this does not mean

he did not like money].All he wants is to motivate and inspire lives,

and he is rightly doing that.Infact,Stephen Covey is a managerial

advisor to some of the Fortune 500 Companies in America.These

companies are raking in billions of dollars in profit annually,and

most their CEOs are in Forbes.

Sam Adeyemi,one of Nigeria's foremost professional speakers,

talks about successful living,personal and organisational

finance strategies.He hosts the radio programme,''Success

Power'',which is broadcast in Nigeria and other nations.He

teaches wealth creation tactics.The question now is,Is he

among the top 1000 richest people in Nigeria?I don't think

he is.But I am sure Sam loves what he is doing - speaking.

Remember we said he teaches wealth creation,we did't say

he practices wealth creation tactics.

So for Robert Kiyosaki,he should be allowed to be.After all,his

teachings[not practice,please]has touched and is still touching

millions of lives positively around the world,his teachings has

made new billionaires and inspired others to be.

Let us take an excerpt from one of his books on his autobiog-

raphy:

, Returning from war,Robert went to work for Xerox

Corporation and in 1977 started a company that brought the

first Nylon Velcro surfer nylon to market,In 1985 he founded

an international company that taught[not practiced] business

and investing to tens of thousands of students throughout

the world,

Whether he taught or practiced what he teahes,I believed

this great icon has made his mark positively.

And I am sure you agree with me.

Thanks

@hazh

Good job there.

@post

Robert Kiyosaki is not teaching us to be wealthy so as to be in Forbes rating. He is there to motivate you to leave the elemental poverty level, to a comfortable level where you can afford the necesities of life with ease. I value his books and encourage people to read them for financial re-orientation and growth.

I have read his books and have really learned a lot from them.

Personally, whether he enter in that circle or not is unimportant to me, I just need more of his knowledge(more books from here).
