Your Financial Education Is Your Path To Becoming Rich

How would you score your your financial IQ and the level of your financial education?

Do you ever find yourself afraid to take a particular action, particularly when it comes to your financial affairs, simply because you're don't know what to do?

You know what I mean. You're afraid of losing money and so you are indecisive about what to do with your money to make it grow.

And because you are afraid of losing it, you let the fear lead you to inaction. And so now you're stuck because nothing has changed.

You can relate, right? Most of us experience this at some point in our life.

So, what is it that can allow you to overcome those fears which are trapping you in a cycle of inaction?

The answer is education. Specifically, financial education.

Education is growth. And growth is the only evidence of life.

So why wouldn't you invest in your own growth? It's paramount to your success.

An excellent book that deals with the concept of financial education and why it is so important is Why We Want You To Be Rich, by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki.

In their book, Trump and Kiyosaki talk about a number of trends and factors that are aligning into a "perfect storm" of sort that can have frightening implications to your financial future.

I believe it is your job to educate yourself about these trends and factors so that you can lead yourself with regard to your financial affairs.

Learn about things such as the growing trade deficit, the exponentially growing US debt, the declining US dollar, the fact that a huge number of baby boomers are on the verge of retirement without enough money to do so, the financial condition of our social programs, what's driving rising oil and energy prices, and so on.

This is what financial education is all about.

You see, the more I've learned over the years, the more I realize I just don't know.

But with an investment of a couple of hours a week, you can begin to position yourself so that you can have full responsibility and control over your financial life. You position yourself through some education.

Become informed enough that you can function as a generalist, directing the professionals or experts, with which you engage in your wealth building affairs.

It's your life, and your financial well being, so start driving your own car.

And it doesn't need to be anywhere as complicated as you've been led to believe.

There are a number of very informative books and newsletters to which you can subscribe that will give you tremendous guidance to assist with your financial education.

And a great place to start is to pick up Trump and Kiyosaki's book.
