On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing how reading changed my life, as well as my thoughts on the leadership self-help book I’m currently reading.
By now you know I’m a big believer in constantly working on creating the best version of yourself, physically and mentally.
It’s funny that, throughout all my years of studying at school, what stands out most, from all the lectures and textbooks, are three words that one of my professors said to me on my last day of classes.
Never stop learning.
To this day, these three words still stand out as the most important thing I learned in college.
Regardless if you:
I’m committed to reading at least 1 book a month.
It’s usually an autobiography of someone I admire or a self-help book on:
You may be wondering why I’m constantly reading books on leadership.
Well, it’s because I’m leading our Live Lean Transformation 1,000,000 mission to make healthy habits, like moving your body and eating real food, normal again.
It may sound crazy, but as a society, we need this.
Robert is a well known as the author of the best-selling Rich Dad Poor Dad book series.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is the book that helped changed my mindset about my career.
I used to think I was supposed to find a safe job, with a pension, where I report to a boss, and fulfill a company’s mission.
After a lot of soul searching and reading, I soon realized that path wasn’t meant for me.
The books I was reading made me realize I had the power to create my own entrepreneurial lifestyle.
A lifestyle where I was excited to:
When my mindset on this changed, everything else followed.
Even though the first few years as an entrepreneur were really tough, both financially and mentally, I understood what my “why” was.
I believed it was possible, so I kept consistently hustling harder than I ever did before, to make it happen.
Now that hard work and dedication is helping people Live Lean from all over the world.
I owe a lot of my success to the teachings that I learned from many of Robert’s books, especially the Rich Dad Poor Dad.
Without a doubt, when I was sent Robert’s new book, 8 Lessons In Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs, I was excited to read his new material.
Even though I’m not in the military, it’s no surprise that the leadership experience our soldiers receive during training is top notch.
I remember watching the TV show, The Apprentice.
The contestants with military experience always seemed to rise to the top, based on their leadership skills.
In this book, Robert shares 8 lessons on how his military experience ultimately provided the foundation he needed to succeed as an entrepreneur.
There are lots of great insights in this book.
Even if you aren’t in a leadership role, it’s important to know how to lead yourself through self-discipline.
That’s why leadership ties so closely to Living Lean.
We need self-discipline to:
These life-long healthy habits are exactly what I’m teaching you every single week on our Live Lean TV YouTube channel.
If you want to check out Robert Kiyosaki’s 8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs, or any of his other books such as Rich Dad Poor Dad, or the Cashflow Quadrant, I recommend you can get them on Amazon.
Also, I wanted to point out that $3 from every sale of his new book will go to a military charity to assist veterans.
That is very cool and inspiring.
