读好书《Rich Dad Poor Dad》

很多年前这就是本极其风靡的书,不过年少时文艺的我尽量避免去看经济金钱类的书,所以我那时没看过。前段时间猛然遇到英文版本,一翻发现还挺有趣,就看完了。

现在年纪有了,钱也没有,还从事教育行业,所以看这本书极其适合我。大概就是每本书都有它适合读的时候。

这本书词汇量极其简单,建议还没看过的大家去看英文版本,作者是个日裔美国人。为了求证他是不是真的如书中所说地那么有钱,我还专门百度谷歌了他。还行,不过后期没那么火了。因为书很火,很多英文阅读软件上都有这本书。

全书一共208页,分为9个章节。因为语言易懂,叙事较多,很快可以看完。

以下是我的书摘,与大家分享。

1.For example, one dad had a habit of saying, "I can't afford it." The other dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted I say, "How can I afford it?" One is a statement, and the other is a question. One lets you off the hook, and the other forces you to think.
穷爸爸会说,我买不起。富爸爸会问,我应该怎样才买得起?一个让你别想了,一个强迫你思考。

2."My brain gets stronger every day because I exercise it. The stronger it gets, the more money I can make." He believed that automatically saying "I can't afford it" was a sign of mental laziness.
说“我买不起”其实是思想上的懒惰。

3.My two dads had opposing attitudes in thought. One dad thought that the rich should pay more in taxes to take care of those less fortunate. The other said, "Taxes punish those who produce and reward those who don't produce.
穷爸爸认为富人应该交更多税以照应穷人;富爸爸认为税收在惩罚那些产出的人,奖赏那些不产出的人。

4.If you can't make up you mind decisively, then you'll never learn to make money anyway. Opportunities come and go. Being decisions is an important skill.
快速而准确地做决定很重要。

5.life is the best teacher of all. Most of the time life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying, `Wake up. There's something I want you to learn.' "
生活是最好的老师。大多数时候生活并不说话,它只是逼迫你前进,每一个逼迫都是在说,醒醒吧,我得教你点东西了。

6.Life pushes all of us around. Some give up. Others fight. A few learn the lesson and move on. They welcome life pushing them around. To these few people, it means they need and want to learn something. They learn and move on. Most quit, and a few like you fight.
生活把我们往前推,有的人放弃了,有的人选择战斗。

7.You'd best change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I'm the problem. If you think I'm the problem, then you have to change me. If you realize that you're the problem, then you can change yourself, learn something and grow wiser. Most people want problem, then you can change yourself, learn something and grow wiser. Most people want everyone else in the world to change but themselves. Let me tell you, it's easier to change yourself than everyone else."
出任何事儿,都从自己身上找问题,因为自己的问题自己可以改正。怪罪别人是没用的,改变自己比改变别人容易多了。

8.Well, if you don't pay me more or show me more respect and teach me, I'll quit."
"Well put," rich dad said. "And that's exactly what most people do. They quit and go looking for another job, better opportunity, and higher pay, actually thinking that a new job or more pay will solve the problem. In most cases, it won't."
大多数人遇到问题了就辞职,其实一份新的工作根本不能解决问题。你的问题还在那里。

9.First, the fear of being without money motivates us to work hard, and then once we get that paycheck, greed or desire starts us thinking about all the wonderful things money can buy. The pattern is then set."
"What pattern?" I asked.
"The pattern of get up, go to work, pay bills, get up, go to work, pay bills... Their lives are then run forever by two emotions, fear and greed. Offer them more money, and they continue the cycle by also increasing their spending. This is what I call the Rat Race."
“害怕没钱”激励我们工作。一旦有了工资,贪婪和欲望就会来了。于是我们的人生被“害怕没钱”和“渴望更多钱”支配着。

10.They feel the fear, they go to work, hoping that money will soothe the fear, but it doesn't. That old fear haunts them, and they go back to work, hoping again that money will calm their fears, and again it doesn't. Fear has them in this trap of working, earning money, working, earning money, hoping the fear will go away. But every day they get up, and that old fear wakes up with them. For millions of people, that old fear keeps them awake all night, causing a night of turmoil and worry. So they get up and go to work, hoping that a paycheck will kill that fear gnawing at their soul. Money is running their lives, and they refuse to tell the truth about that.
Money is in control of their emotions and hence their souls.
这种恐惧一直萦绕着人们。金钱控制着人们的情绪和灵魂。

11.It is perfectly normal to desire something better, prettier, more fun or exciting. So people also work for money because of desire. They desire money for the joy they think it can buy. But the joy that money brings is often short lived, and they soon need more money for more joy, more more pleasure, more comfort, more security. So they keep working, thinking money will soothe their souls that is troubled by fear and desire. But money cannot do that."
人们会为了想买更好的东西而工作,他们觉得钱能买来快乐。但是这种快乐是短暂的。于是人们更加努力工作,觉得金钱可以抚平恐惧和欲望,但其实并不能。(那也比没钱好啊。)

12.To wake up in the middle of the night terrified about paying bills is a horrible way to live. To live a life dictated by the size of a paycheck is not really a life. Thinking that a job will make you feel secure is lying to yourself.
半夜醒来想着没付的账单这种生活是可怕的。认为一份工作可以给你安全感是在对自己撒谎。

13.Intelligence solves problems and produces money.
聪明能够解决问题,创造金钱。

14.If your pattern is to spend everything you get, most likely an increase in cash will just result in an increase in spending.

15.They know that professional success is no longer solely linked to academic success, as it once was.
职业上的成就并不仅仅指学业上的成就。

16.“An intelligent person hires people who are more intelligent than they are.”
聪明的人雇更聪明的人为他们工作。

17.schools were designed to produce good employees instead of employers.
学校就是用来培养员工而不是老板的。

18.A problem with school is that you often become what you study.
学校的问题在于,你总是学什么就做什么职业。

19.Keep your daytime job, be a great hard-working employee, but keep building that asset column.

20.An important distinction is that rich people buy luxuries last, while the poor and middle class tend to buy luxuries first. The poor and the middle class often buy luxury items such as big houses, diamonds, furs, jewelry or boats because they want to look rich. They look rich, but in reality they just get deeper in debt on credit. The old-money people, the long-term rich, built their asset column first. Then, the income generated from the asset column bought their luxuries.
最重要的区别在于,富人总是最后才买奢侈品,但是穷人或中产阶级会先买奢侈品。因为他们想看起来有钱。他们是看起来有钱,但实际上他们有越来越多的信用卡没还。(哈哈哈,那些看起来有钱的起码看起来有钱啊。)

21.The reason the middle class is so heavily taxed is because of the Robin Hood ideal. The real reality is that the rich are not taxed. It's the middle
class who pays for the poor, especially the educated upper-income middle class.
富人是不怎么交税的(我想到我在深圳的房东),都是中产阶级,尤其是受过教育的中产阶级在交税。

22.We all have tremendous potential, and we all are blessed with gifts. Yet, the one thing that holds all of us back is some degree of self-doubt. It is not so much the lack of technical information that holds us back, but more the lack of self-confidence.
我们都是有各种潜力的,唯一没让我们去尝试的是自我怀疑。所以自信点,管他呢。

23.your financial genius requires both technical knowledge as well as courage.

24.I have never met a rich person who has never lost money. But I have met a lot of poor people who have never lost a dime.
我从没见过富人没亏过钱的。但是我见过很多穷人从没亏过钱。

25.We're all heroes at something and cowards at something else.
我们总是擅长某些事,在另外一些事上比较怂。

26.“If you hate risk and worry. . .start early.”
如果你讨厌冒险和担忧,那就早点开始。(这句话真适合我现在,赶各种deadline。)

27.They're proud when they win, and they brag when they lose.
富人赢的时候骄傲,输的时候吹嘘。(总之无论如何都是傲娇的。)

28.If you're going to go broke, go big.
要破产也得破点大的。

29.“Everyone wants to go to Heaven, but no one wants to die.”
每个人都想去天堂,但是没人想死。(你也太真理了。大意是,大家都想收获,但计较付出。)

30.For winners, losing inspires them. For losers, losing defeats them.
Quoting John D. Rockefeller, “I always tried to turn every disaster ' into an opportunity.”
对赢家来说,失败激励了他们。对于loser来说,失败会击败他们。

31.Repeating Fran Tarkenton's quote, “Winning means being unafraid to lose.”

32.they play not to lose. They don't play to win.
他们参与是为了不失去,而不是为了赢。

33.As I said, I wish I could say it was easy. It wasn't, but it wasn't hard either. But without a strong reason or purpose, anything in life is hard.
文艺地表达,生活不容易。

34.There are so many “intelligent” people who argue or defend when a new idea clashes with the way they think. In this case, their so-called “intelligence” combined with “arrogance” equals “ignorance”.
有很多自认为聪明的人总是拒绝新的想法的出现,这种人根本不聪明,只是傲慢和无知。

35.A truly intelligent person welcomes new ideas, for new ideas can add to the synergy of other accumulated ideas. Listening is more important than talking. If that was not true, God would not have given us two ears and only one mouth. Too many people think with their mouth instead of listening to absorb new ideas and possibilities. They argue instead of asking questions.
聪明人是会接受新观点的。倾听比说重要。太多人靠嘴思考了。

36.Most of us have heard the saying “You are what you eat.” I have a different slant on the same saying. I say, “You become what you study.” In other words, be careful what you study and learn, because your mind is so powerful that you become what you put in your head.
你学什么就会变成什么。

37.Choose what you study carefully.
所以,慎重选择你学的东西。

38.People who lack internal fortitude often become victims of those who have self-discipline.
自律的人最终会掌控不自律的人。

39.if you're not tough inside, the world will always push you around anyway.
如果你内心不够强大,这世界总是会指使你。

40.you kiss a lot of frogs to find one prince.
为了找到王子🤴,你亲吻太多青蛙🐸了。(哈哈哈,有趣。)

41.Remember, the easy road often becomes hard, and the hard road often becomes easy.
容易走的路后来都不容易,开始困难的路后来会变得容易。

42.Poor people are more greedy than rich people.
穷人往往更贪婪。

43.Whenever I feel that people aren't smiling at me, I simply begin smiling and saying hello, and like magic, there are suddenly more smiling people around me. It is true that your world is only a mirror of you.
一碗鸡汤,今天你微笑🙂了吗?

总结:我还很穷。
