Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Read my thoughts after reading the book "Rich Dad Poor Dad" (Click on the link to open)

Here are few lines I re-read:

“The love of money is the root of all evil.”

“The lack of money is the root of all evil.”

One of the reasons the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the middle class struggles in debt is that the subject of money is taught at home, not in school.

Proper physical exercise increases your chances for health, and proper mental exercise increases your chances for wealth.

There is a difference between being poor and being broke. Broke is temporary. Poor is eternal.

Money is one form of power. But what is more powerful is financial education. Money comes and goes, but if you have the education about how money works, you gain power over it and can begin building wealth.

The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.

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’.

“Emotions are what make us human. The word ‘emotion’ stands for ‘energy in motion.’ Be truthful about your emotions and use your mind and emotions in your favor, not against yourself.”

KISS principle—Keep It Simple, Stupid (or Keep It Super Simple)

An asset puts money in my pocket. A liability takes money out of my pocket. ... new definitions of asset and liability
My rich dad did not see Robin Hood as a hero. He called Robin Hood a crook.

“If you know you’re right, you’re not afraid of fighting back.”

Often in the real world, it’s not the smart who get ahead, but the bold.

Wealth is in information...The problem is that information flies around the world at the speed of light.

Great opportunities are not seen with your eyes. They are seen with your mind.

Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.

Life is much like going to the gym. The most painful part is deciding to go.

“Everyone wants to go to heaven, but no one wants to die.”

Failure inspires winners. And failure defeats losers.

FOCUS: Follow One Course Until Successful.

“Guilt is worse than greed, for guilt robs the body of its soul.”

Whenever I feel that people aren’t smiling at me, I simply begin smiling and saying hello. Like magic, the next thing I know I’m surrounded by smiling people. It is true that your world is only a mirror of you.

Quotes by Apurva Purohit: Author of Lady, You're Not a Man! : The Adventures of a Woman at Work

Below are some lines that caught my attention from the book -

Lady, You're Not a Man! : The Adventures of a Woman at Work

Follow the link above to read my review of the book.

"Priorities need to change at different stages of our life if we want to grow and evolve."

" We women actually have very simple needs indeed. Give or take a few diamonds, about forty pair of shoes, a few cuddles from our spouses and a reliable cook, all we want is to be happy and successful - both in our corporate lives and at home."

"Most wars are lost in our minds much before we have stepped out on the battlefield. In a choice between skill and great attitude, attitude always wins, hands down."

"Pregnancy is not an illness, it's a process of life."

Reflections: A to Z Challenge April 2015

It's finally over. Yes, it was my reaction when I published the last post with letter "Z".

If was my year of participation and I am proud of myself that I completed the challenge on both my blogs.

I am glad I choose a theme and more glad that I stuck to it!

I got two reminder emails from the one of the hosts asking me to catch up. Kudos to them for keeping a good track of all. Both emails pushed me to catch up and schedule rest in advance.

For this blog, I decided to blog the pregnancy quotes with an expression or word starting with each letter of the day. While, some were easy, others were extremely difficult to find. I also came across several quotes I simply loved - I loved all I posted, but you know some just stays in your heart.

An interview to myself!

Q: Did I have a theme?
A: yeah! Check out the theme reveal...

Q: Did I finished with success?
A: Yes.

Q: Did I plan my posts in advance?
A: I tried to do that before April, but failed to do that.

Q: Did I post everyday?
A: No. While I managed to schedule some of my posts in advance once a while, I also had to work really hard to catch up many times.

Q: Did I learn anything?
A: Yes. 
1. General knowledge
2. Importance of planning and drafting posts in advance.

Q: Did I get more views?
A: Yes, as compared to normal months.

Q: Did I get more comments?
A: Yes, it's incredible how fellow bloggers take out time for this amazing encouragement.

Q: Did I visit more blogs and commented?
A: No! I so wish I had done it. But my official work and personal commitments left me no time to visit any blog and I barely managed to post with each letter though not everyday. 
I would definitely try to make up for it by visiting as many reflections as possible - at-least who those took out time to comment on my posts.

Q: Would I participate again next year?
A: Yes, as long as I am blogging :)

Z is for Zest - Enthusiasm - Pregnancy

Every time I felt tired during my pregnancy, my zest came back at one at the mere movement of little feet.

And the last one, I so pray from the deepest corner of my heart that no soul ever experience this thought...
Ok... One more...
