author blogger and internet entrepreneur and he's he's the best-selling author of a book I love the title the subtle art of not giving a F and I usually say that word a lot but Kim is sitting here is I'm not allowed to say a counterintuitive approach to living a good life which came out in 2016 and his more recent book is everything is effed a book about hope and I don't know if you guys know this but I sit there and I see a lot of know where men and women everywhere maybe it's a reflection of me seeing what you know reflecting in the mirror but I meet so many people whose lives are effed and so today if you're one of these people who's effed up in life this is your program for you and we have a fantastic Gotham's going to talk to you how to get on EFT wait thank you I'm excited I'm excited because I want to I want to start with them I want to start with this the subtle art of not giving an F but you know as you talked about there's a lot of fake I think this whole with Robert you're coming out with your new book fake I think there's a lot of fake and we were talking before we started the show about all the people that they go on Instagram and Facebook and they say oh look at all the thousands of friends I have I have all these friends and they don't have friends they don't even know who these people are but they have this they've made stuff up in their mind that there's this delusion people I think are delusional and so we're gonna figure out how to get past the delusion with Mark Manson so mark so the marks a mark you can use the f-word cousin you can say whatever you want what's your motivation for writing these effed up books books we have it yeah right it's um basically I you know I I grew up reading a lot of self-help and a lot of it you know there were there were a lot of great messages about positive thinking and both setting and and things like that and but by the time I I got into my thirties I I think I got caught and a lot of those traps a lot of those fake a lot of that fakeness that you guys were saying and and I figured that you know we needed to have as a culture we need to have a very difficult discussion about what we value and what we are choosing to make important in our lives and and so I wanted to write self-help books around that but since nobody will buy a book about values you know I had to put the effort that's very smart marketing I think you know everybody's got their handle and yours is EFT that's pretty good you know I you know it's a it's a you you you now you know control that territory so why do you think people so let's go into the subtle art of not giving a eff a computer intuitive approach to living a good life was a message to people listening right now who think their lives are kind of effed up yeah and are you saying don't care the subtle art of not sharing or what what it what's the message so the message is basically you have to you have to care about something there's no such thing as not and I think we all wish and our fantasies we wish that we had a very carefree life and that nothing bothers us but the truth of the matter is that there's always going to be issues in life there's always going to be problems and essentially we need to focus on choosing better problems for ourselves instead of running away from our problems we need to like choose better problems good that you choose drugs that benefit our lives versus just go just doing all this stuff that's not important that doesn't have any meaning just doing you know posting all your pictures on Instagram and worrying about all these little things yours are you saying you need to you need to have take on bigger bigger tasks yeah essentially the argument I make is that if you're really unhappy with your life it's not because you have problems it's because you have bad problems you have problems that are not adding meaning and purpose to your life a good life is a life with good problem what you know one of the things I even say in the book is that you know people without money suffer because they don't have money people with money suffer because they have money you know it's that the suffering is always there it's just that one set of problems is much more desirable than another set of problems you know I was just I was just in Las Vegas at a Tony Robbins seminar and he's got them all revved up that's like 5,000 of them and they're all jumping up and down and screaming and yelling and having a good time what do you think of all that I'm not a huge subscriber to that I mean I think I think Tony does great stuff um I think there's a lot of good advice but you know one of the things I'm a much more pessimistic person I think human humans by nature are we're very flawed selfish creatures were very irrational short-sighted and so while it often feels very good to get in a room and jump up and down and say that you know you can do anything and you can accomplish your dreams and all this stuff you know it that feels nice but at the end of the day if you're if you have bad dreams then being able to accomplish them is not a good thing and so I I just take a much more pessimistic in cynical view towards our own minds and our own happiness well just and I and I try go ahead Oh fYI you know me when Tony first came out were Kim and I were living in La Jolla California and he he came out and he was the hottest guy and he was our part he was our partner for a while and then we parted ways you know because he has good stuff and I learned a lot from him but I tend to agree with you I think one of the reasons people are not successful is because I don't think they're handling what they need to handle first of all in life you know and like you have money problems oh that's your next opportunity can you handle that problem or not jumping up and down and high-fiving and feeling good it's not going to handle it I mean that's kind of what happened for Kim and myself and and we went our separate ways none you know Kim and I learned a lot from them I can we learned a whole lot and he's a great teacher and he and he does a lot of great things for a lot of people just it's a different a different style definitely and so let me ask you mark because you talked a lot about values and so invaluable and everybody's so busy on all these devices do they even know what their values are i well i think a lot of us don't I think it's it's a very difficult process because I think we all think we do you know if you ask somebody is like oh what's most important in your life you know they'll say like my family and yeah you know my friends in blah blah blah but if you look at their behaviors you look at their actions if you look at their track record most of us are not living up to the values that we aspire to so I think let me ask you this question let's say somebody is uh nowhere nowhere woman that's sitting here in a bad bad marriage or bad job or not making enough money or they're under mountains of debt or student loan debt and all this and you're kind of anti the self-help movement or positive thinking stuff is that as I understand yeah I describe myself as like a self-help for people who hate self-help that's pretty good so if I could just get back to values for one second because when Robert and I on early on in our relationship we wouldn't even soul process and it was a great process for anybody who goes going into partnership and so what we did is we took a three by five card and I wrote down my top ten values and then I flipped it over and I wrote what I thought Roberts top ten values were and he did the same and then we discussed it and when you say it's a process cope so a few years ago I went back to that list and my girlfriends and I went through and kind of redefined some of our values and it was a process and it took it took a few months actually to get crystal clear on what it is I stood for what's important to me what's most meaningful to me it is a process and why do you think people don't want to look why don't they look it's painful it's difficult it's because you have to be honest about your own failures and I think it's just it's much easier to distract yourself with simple pleasures and you know hits a dopamine yeah from the internet and everything Roberts very proud of his failures we'd we'd learn from them we discuss them we put them up on we put them in lights you gotta be you gotta be it's it's the only way you learn are you one of these people no pain no gain yeah I think that's kind of a simplified way to look at it I think we're simple she knows how we do I guess my argument would be no pain no game but also just no pain no luck like even if you're not gaining you're gonna have pain so you might as well gay right right I agree this there's pain anywhere so so what role did that what role does pain play in success I think it's it's it's necessary it's a you know I think success is a product of who is able to face and deal with their pain the best I think the more we avoid our pain acted the more fragile we become I got more excited yeah I've got an example I was just at the gym yesterday and here's this guy and he's about he was about 350 pounds and he wants to lose weight he wants to get fit but he shows up once maybe every two weeks he has excuses of why he can't do it so he's not willing to face that pain he's not willing to go through it yeah and it's the same is true in business the same choosin money like it's painful it sucks to put away like 20% of your paycheck like that that's not fun but it's that is what you know gives you a stable financial life it's true in business is true and everything one of the things I just read this morning is that it's what you react to is how big you are now if you you get upset that somebody's not doing something that's very petty and I think a lot of times people are in pain over a little petty things that get in the way of the big picture of their life and things like that so what is what is the art of not giving a yeah well I I joke with people you know everybody focuses on the F word in the title but I always tell people I say the most important word is subtle because ultimately all these questions about values what you're choosing to care about what you're choosing to focus your time and energy on these are actually very subtle questions our mind plays tricks on us we're always looking for ways to avoid the difficult question and it ultimately it requires like a consistent skepticism of our own thoughts and feelings – to stay aligned with were ultimately like can we come back on an asset if you give me an example of a know where man or know where a woman just to be politically correct here sure but you know I was just reading this because I do a lot of self-help stuff I mean I like it mm-hmm but I going to go through the you know being a former I am a Marine I don't see but you go through the pain meditation every morning and I go to the gym and I hate it you know I hate writing books and I hate dealing with idiots and all that stuff but it's part of the process of growing so I'm kind of the you know you don't join the Marine Corps because you're a wimp if you know what I mean yeah what's you I just I knew I joined them because it was going to be painful that was the main razor so it's kind of refreshing to hear somebody like us trust you of your generation in your age saying the same thing because I'm so sick and tired of everybody gets a trophy and don't say anything that hurts somebody's feeling and all this I'm going hey you know when my feelings are hurt I mean I don't like it but there's some of the best feedback I can get at that moment in time so we come back we'll be talking more about a real person or an example of a male or female or they're not looking in the mirror they're not going through the pain so all of you out there who are dodging the pain like you in a job you hate or a relationship you hate or your kids hate you or whatever the situation may be that could be a best opportunity for success in life you're listening to the Rich Dad radio show with Robert Kiyosaki don't be like charlie charlie is that do-it-yourselfer who does himself in do it yourself is good for tile and grout it is not good for asset protection Charlie thought he'd save a few dollars forming his LLC online with no guidance he did it wrong when he sold the property he lost thousands and thousands of dollars he did himself in by trying to do it himself don't burn yourself use corporate direct to set up and maintain your LLC's and corporations corporate direct is owned and operated by attorney and Rich Dad adviser Garrett Sutton Garrett wrote the bestsellers loopholes of real estate and start your own corporation he is Robert Kiyosaki's attorney for asset protection he and his team will do it right visit them at corporate direct comm or call eight hundred 676 zero mention Rich Dad and receive $100 off your formation fee that's corporate direct com corporate director comm what is your number one expense in life your number one expense it's taxes and I'll go ask the question that's how come there's no financial education in school but why isn't their education on taxes either you know they tell you to save money which is stupid until you invest in the stock market which is stupid but what they teach you about taxes so here at Rich that advisor Tom wheelwright we're talking about is revision for his book tax free well welcome Tom thanks Robert so what's the tax free wealth about what what's different this time subrip dot revised edition well so what we did was is we had this is the first major tax reform we've had in thirty years to 2017 was a TSX was the last eighty six was last one back when I was in Washington DC so many guys got wiped out because of that texture yeah they did they did it wiped out an entire industry savings and loans this new tax law is just as big but in a very different way it affects different industries you know the tax law is always a series of incentives and the question is always which incentives and which ones apply to me and so the key to revising tax-free wealth was what is a what changed so much in this new tax law that we can absolutely take advantage of in me I mean seriously the amazing the sentence for example I mean the bonus depreciation for example for real estate is unbelievable you buy a $1,000,000 apartment get a $300,000 deduction or more the very first year so if you want to make more money and pay less taxes like Donald Trump and myself get Tom's book tax-free well log on to Rich Dad radio.com while you listen now back to Robert Kiyosaki welcome back Robert Kiyosaki the pitch day radio show the good news and bad news about money and today we're talking to all those people out there may not be you but you probably have a brother sister or son or a daughter or father or mother who is just nowhere nowhere and they don't get up every morning and today is the same as it was yesterday and you know their lives are screwed up so once again you can listen to the rich their radio show anytime anywhere when iTunes are a joy and all of our programs are archived at Rich Dad radio.com we archive them for one reason is that you can listen to this program again because we're an educational program we don't sell recommend any kind of investment but when you listen to this program again you will retain probably 70% more than you'll hear it the first time but more importantly I think this program is important to share with friends family business associates and the losers in your life I mean it's a very important program because there's no scarcity of losers out there it's just horrifying you know now with all this the left-wing I mean Bernie Sanders running for president he looks like a conservative and I can't believe they want free large free food free medical free free paychecks free manicures free pedicures I mean what has happened to this country where are we going so my guest today is Mark Manson I love the title book everything is effed a book about hope out now and the subtle art of not giving a eff a counterintuitive approach to living a good life his website is Mark Manson ma RK ma and som dotnet and this is a very important book especially if you're tending to the Norway our man status you wanted why is my life effed any comments Kim well I think it's a I think this is a really perfect subject right now because if you look at what's going on with social media and the media and everybody's so engaged in all these devices that they're not taking the time to really focus on what's important to them what their values are and that's what Mark's talking about so so if I can add one more thing and we're talking about values but the other thing I found out that makes a person successful is a thing called priorities you know can you get your priorities in a line and as we're saying you know like Kim and I years and years ago said let's let's make it a goal to retire young so we have a book called called retire young retire rich you know and all this just get on with our lives and now you know I just turned 72 in April and I see people they haven't even started to think about retirement they got Jack they got nothing then I say younger people who were in their 40s and 50s they're still not thinking it's still not a priority and this one thing that I think we all know setting up for retirement takes time and when effort and as mark says struggle and pain you got to go through it to get there yeah and so they're they're out there having a good time but their priorities oh oh I have an extra 100 bucks you know I could do so I think I'll go to Las Vegas with it and their priorities are EFT any comments on that mark yeah a lot we got 20 minutes you can do it that well I I think one of the biggest issues is that we tend to prioritize based on our feelings you know we so planning for retirement it's it's anxiety inducing it's it can be depressing it's not fun and our mind is always biased towards prioritizing what feels good and I think it's we have to constantly counteract that within ourselves and I think there used to be a lot of cultural institutions and traditions of like helping people like to push against their own just indulging their own emotions and I think a lot of what has changed today is that those restraints are being removed but you know it's it the cold the culture today is just like if it feels good go for it yeah but also I read that people have lost the resilience you know if you say something hurts their feelings you know that they they attack you on social media and so you call yeah you the pain is now what you've said something that offended me you know I mean their pain tolerance is so low but worst of all they take that pain they attack everybody else minutes I'm not on social media and I am but I don't pay much attention to it they go out there and they attack anybody who hurts their feelings yeah I get it all the time I actually I just made a I sent an email out and hey you know I have a pretty F word in my book title so obviously I have a pretty crass sense of humor so I made a I made a joke esmie it offends me I made it I made a joke about a stripper I count like 40 emails of people telling me I'm immoral and I'm I'm disgusting and they can't believe I would say so I'm like what world are we living it like can everybody relax for a second mark woman who wrote a book on economist walks into a brothel and I told him the story yes I told the story of how I was sitting in this cathouse in Costa Rica talking to Kim and the emails flow so what the hell are you doing in a cathouse you know I said well kind of looking around I don't fool around I like to go and look and oh man it's like there are moral standards oh I thought I was talking to the Pope or something so into that point to that point I think this goes right into what you're saying is that people are focusing on all these little bitty tiny things that really don't matter instead of looking at something that is important in their life or meaningful in their life that really matters and they should get on with that and quit messing around with all the other crap so let me ask you this mark we'd see a chance to pump your book again this everything is EFT and the subtle art of not giving it what do you want what what is the benefit for all the people listening right now why should they read your book especially if they are not you know values are messed up and their priorities are out of sync and they're EFT liquid why should they read your book I think right now we're living in a culture of instant gratification and and I think it's affecting everybody I think you know I'm a younger guy it probably affects my generation a bit more but I think it's affecting everybody we're putting too much emphasis on immediately feeling good and distracting ourselves to feel good and basically my whole career is writing self-help and personal development books that help people confront painful realities that they need to confront and we need more of that in our culture but what's different about your book I mean I mean it's different than that you say well you're basically saying almost no pain no gain which I agree with this I like pain because when I get yeah pain I've gone to another level of life you know it's like I hate going to the gym but when I'm through I'm happy but most people never go to the gym and they get unhappier that's a real settling well in it yeah I mean my first point would just be that you're gonna have pain no matter what so you might as well gain from it you know it's there's no avoiding the pain there's always gonna be pain so you might as well pick good pain but the other thing that I do that I think is very different than other people in the industry is that I come from a starting point I have a very pessimistic view of human nature I think we're just very irrational and flawed creatures and we need to accept that you think they're having counteracted well you were totally yes we've always been after we've been asked since the beginning of time and we're gonna be asked forever so would you recommend that somebody give this book to their brother-in-law who's ft and here's what here's what I here's what I understand and everything is EFT is that people you say you know we have technology as people are healthier living longer economies supposedly good people are wealthier yet everybody's EFT and they're angry and they're not happy and they take offense at the littlest thing what the heck is what what's going on yeah it's we live in a very strange time in that the world materially the world is the best it's ever been yet there's tons of data out there showing that people are more depressed anxious angry upset than in generations and so the book looks at what it what is it about our current technology or current culture that is enabling people to that is essentially just bringing out the worst in ourselves emotionally and causing all this conflict all the time well you must have hit a nerve because your international bestseller then you know a lot of people would agree with you that how can I be so unhappy when I have everything yeah what part of the problem you know one of those one of the first points I make in the book is that it the better things get was so much of us feeling good and stable and healthy is having something to look forward to and so when we're sitting you know in an air-conditioned room and we've got a nice big TV and you know we have like mocha frappuccinos delivered to our door with a click of a button oh that sounds good it's hard it's hard to know what to hope for what what to pursue and so that actually it creates this this this discomfort and malaise within people they feel like they have to invent problems where there are none in order to feel like they're they're accomplishing something and does it come down to the main point of they just don't have that meaning in their life they don't know what's most important to them so they're looking outside of themselves yes when you flood people with information all day every day and then nothing's more difficult to know what's important then and before you know thing you'll say feeling hi is not being happy yes is that why they yeah is that why the drug epidemic is so rampant now I think I think you're seeing it on a lot of fronts I think social media addiction there's you know people talk about porn addiction now and then so they're looking for that adrenaline rush all the time yeah and and and it's you know one of the things I talk about is there's a difference between happiness and highs and I think our culture's started to confuse highs for happy so I learn easy to market they're easy to sell to people so everything is EFT and the sole art of not giving and a few you'll you'll explain this between happiness and highs yeah that's a good reason there is your book there but I would do want to know what's that what's your definition of happiness so happiness is having something meaningful that you're pursuing yeah day to day yeah in the thing about happiness who said it's not always pleasant you know sometimes if you think about like raising a kid or building a business like it's a very stressful uncomfortable thing but it's also what makes you happiest and most proud proud of in your life yes and we because we talk about if you're building a business you've got to find that purpose for your business and purpose within yourself otherwise you're gonna quit when it gets hard and I see a lot of people quit really quickly because it gets too hard they have a setback they can't handle it because they're in it for the highs yeah and the money so you know mark I congratulate you on your success I'm glad you now control the f-word not me you have no idea of mark I mean you know you're passing the torch pass that torch well you know when I went to a military school and then six years Marine Corps and if somebody wasn't cursing me out that meant that didn't love me you know I mean and come out in society of like ah you hurt my feelings I said that hurts your feelings you know it's like give me a break yeah anyway so I thank you for you know writing your books and giving a F for people I think it's timely I think it's important and you know like the old it's time to man up or woman up or something you know you get more resilient because I've never met such wimpy people all my life I think yes it we really need to introduce more grit and resilience into the culture for sure amen brother amen amen so once again as Mark Manson he's not not related to other guy are you I congratulate you all your success you know for forgiving 8nf and wanting to get people you know the state to stand your ground basically because there's too much going the other way oh you hurt my feelings and you you've said something offended me and this is the point I don't want to say where I don't want to say or do anything anymore does it make sense to you yeah absolutely I feel it too yeah it's tiring what the hell are we doing is my question it's like why are we responsible for other people's feelings it's not my fault you're upset about something yeah and you know that I was I was in pro the civil and I like the Civil War as a student of it but now they're tearing down all these statues and all this it's not going to change the war tearing down our past trying to rewrite the future and that's gonna screw up our future yeah we don't learn the lessons from the past it's a weird time to be sure and and you know my new book is my attempt to kind of make sense of it yeah it's called everything is effed a book about hope and it's just just out now so mark thank you for writing your books and taking a stand we support your mother yeah thank you mark great work keep it up and look forward to everything you're doing in the future so let's jump we come back we've been going to the next most popular part of our program is called a squadron you're listening to the Rich Dad radio show with Robert Kiyosaki don't be like Charlie Charlie is that do-it-yourselfer who does himself in do-it-yourself is good for tile and grout it is not good for asset protection Charlie thought he'd save a few dollars forming his LLC online with no guidance he did it wrong when he sold the property he lost thousands and thousands of dollars he did himself in by trying to do it himself don't burn yourself use corporate direct to set up and maintain your LLC's and corporations corporate direct is owned and operated by attorney and Rich Dad adviser Garrett Sutton Garrett wrote the bestsellers loopholes of real estate and

and receive $100 off your formation fee that's corporate direct comm corporate direct comment freedom begins with financial education now back to Robert Kiyosaki and the Rich Dad radio show welcome back Robert Kiyosaki first I'm ready to show the good news and bad news about money once again listen to risk a radio program anytime anywhere on iTunes or Android and all of our programs are archived at Rich Dad radio.com we archive them because if you listen to it again your retention and your intelligence will jump at least another 70% but more importantly is listen to a friends family and business associates and any know where men and women in your life and discuss it because it's a very important subject that our author Mark Manson ma NSO N and he's author of everything is EFT and the subtle art of not giving him an F is talking about today because there's too much PC that people are too in my opinion wimpy they're just so wimpy you you can't say anything you hurt their feelings and I understand why you got social media out there is pounding on people you know the what happens in social media today if they find out you don't like Trump they'll send everything that'll keep you inflamed and you're upset about Trump you love them they'll fuck they'll send Hillary Hillary things or Obama things he and people are just so effed up so that's why I think what Mark is doing is a very important book is because there's too much turmoil you know it's just really time to be calm or more peaceful not non reactionary any comments Kim with that well I thought it was a great show and really when he talked about that people prioritize things and they base their values on what feels good in the moment and I think that's part of the big problem and in not having that meaning or finding out what's most important to you and operating on really what your core values are versus posting a picture on Instagram and hanging out with all your friends your thousands of friends who really aren't your friends I mean they've kind of created a fake world for themselves so I feel like this was like a get back to basics and really get back to work so we're going to ask why but you can submit your question so I asked Robert a rich dad radio.com we appreciate them because I want to find out what you guys are thinking please what's the first question Melissa our first question today comes from Anna from the Bronx New York favorite book Rich Dad Poor Dad she says I'm involved with the network marketing industry and I really love the concept and want to always keep doing whatever I can to get out of the rat race sometimes however I get discouraged because so many people want success and money but are not willing to do what others do how do you suggest handling these people meaning the others that don't want to do the work but only want the rewards fantastic question and congratulations for being in that industry because it's not about handling the other people it's really about handling yourself if you can do that and keep going no matter what happens you're like Kim and I we're just studying the core of the ego Eckhart Tolly it says if you cannot react to it you can just be calm to it and I think that's the most important thing it's like as as a marine and pilots you know when things really bad we think I really calm because if he reacted you went nuts menu you are not functioning any comments of that it's interesting that that Ana talks about network marketing so I was recently at a large network marketing conference and almost every speaker there was two messages one was the more people I serve the more effective I become and the second one was how do you serve more people how do you basically work your butt off to get what you want and I spoke with many women who were at that top levels of their company and these women work like crazy around the clock there was no shortcut that's exactly what Mark Manson is talking about in terms of you got to get out there and you got to feel that pain and you got to go through the struggle there going through it and they're having huge rewards but it's it is them taking the initiative as you said Robert but you gotta learn to control yourself you know that's what tolik Eckhart Tolle is about in all this there isn't say congratulation this most of my friends are very tough people men you know they're Marines or they went there Mormon missionaries and they're in network marketing and what happens for most people they choose the easy route you know how much money can I make is you know can I just sit there at TSA let people go pass and get a paycheck and but the people who are the most successful I've learned to deal with themselves so you know we have Tom we all write our CPA so he's the author of the book tax free wealth he was a Mormon missionary in France and he worked one whole year to cook to convert I think one or two people only everyday taking no taking no taking no and my best friend Larry you know he was in Northern Ireland he has a highest conversion rate of Catholics to Mormonism and he's like so extremely successful because they learned to deal with themselves if you cannot and that's what author smark is talking about if if you let other people affect your life the subtle art of not giving an F you're not gonna make it you know too many people are more worried about other people think of them then learning to control the internal reactions within yourself I was just reading tally this morning he says you are the size of you're upset so like if somebody doesn't deliver your paper in the morning and you're upset that's that's how big you are so people that little tiny things affect them so the longer you stand that network marketing business and keep taking those rejections but Lauren days not get tougher but learn to deal with yourself the better off you'll be and and I think – you hit it on the head when you say people are looking for the easy way they're looking for the easy thing and even this even came up in the conference I was just at that they say well everybody is looking to find that big fish you know that person that has all these connections instead of just doing that hard work every single day meeting people talking to people doing what needs to be done they're looking for the big aha we have a friend who was always making looking for that big real estate deal that was gonna make him Millions and he never found it but he never did the work every day that was necessary to where he could have been successful and he's broke he's broke today he's my agent broke so keep up the good work yeah the most important thing is you know it's like I read about in my book fake as the day I lost my engine over the ocean I went into the biggest calm had ever been in and most people would panic like if you saw that TV that movie Sulli about what starring Tom Hanks he just got calm and if you can do that life's gonna be easy but if you can't do that life's gonna be effed up this question of Melissa our next question comes from Eddie in El Paso Texas favorite book Rich Dad Poor Dad Robert and Kim how do you both handle failure I don't think I think success is dependent upon failure that's exactly what Mark says – yeah I mean if you that's you know that's reason I don't think people should go to school because most school teachers are so afraid of failing that's why they hang out in academics that's my poor debt I grew up in a family of them the good people they just can't handle failure so my my poor dad you know he lost his job he couldn't stand up you know he ran from lieutenant governor in the state of Hawaii as a Republican which is not the brightest thing to do in the communist Republic of Hawaii but he ran for lieutenant governor the governor fired him and my father couldn't stand up he had never failed he had been inhe student all his life so the better you can handle rejection the simpler the question to the woman network marketing when I came out of the Marine Corps took a job at Xerox knocking on doors and you had to knock on a thousand doors to get one sale that's a lot of knocking and it toughen you up it makes you a better person stronger more resilient does it make you mean it makes you a better you learning with each failure I mean every knock on the door was a failure but that's the way I looked at it in the comments you did the same thing with your little network marketing thing yeah I had an I was in network marketing for a little bit and I learned more about business in a year and a half than I did in four years of college but the biggest thing was this whole thing about mistakes is that a mistake just shows you something you didn't know it just shows you something you didn't know and everybody every successful person I have talked to they talk about their mistakes and somebody just the other day said I don't learn anything from my successes but I learned a lot from all my mistakes and my failures and I think that's the key so right now I'm looking at starting I'm starting I'm starting other business you know am I gonna fail yes I look forward to it because that's how I'm going to learn you know I must keep doing the same old thing you know that's good but that's not me so failure is how I learned that question Melissa our next question comes from Oscar in Las Vegas Nevada favorite book unfair advantage says I hear you and Kim talk about how you feel that the coming economic crisis is potentially upon us I'm curious as to how will our lives be affected if the u.s. goes bankrupt it's going to be exciting it's not gonna be boring well justjust look at what's happening in Greece and Italy right now you'll get an idea of it look ups having on Venezuela Cuba Zimbabwe and Japan you just look at those things and you'll see how they're surviving you know Japan is doing okay their debt to GDP is now 220 percent United States is only 107 percent debt-to-gdp when I say that the average guy has no idea what I mean talking about because they don't study this stuff so what happens in an economy once it goes past 60% debt to GDP if the government doesn't make a correction it continues on when it passes 90% debt to GDP is irreversible so now under Trump because you give all these tax cuts to the rich which I like but anyway at a hundred and nine percent hundred and seven percent we're not we cannot turn around where we're now going off the edge so you may as well prepare for it so that's why I wrote the book fake you know the more you understand if you believe CNBC and Fortune magazine and Money Magazine and those guys you're listening to people who actually profit from your ignorance and that's your choice that really is your choice but I'd rather be prepared for the coming crash then pretend it's not coming so I write about in my book fake you know we practice crashing every single day as marine pilots every single day we have emergency procedures so when that baby my engine quit off the coast of Vietnam it was like another day at the park you know I just get calm you go through motions if you've seen that movie about Sully Sullenberger you know putting up putting with a US air into the Hudson River it was calm that's the answer if you're prepared for it it's a wonderful experience if you're not prepared for it that's horrible so really that's what I have to say I read the book fake look at it you know fake money fake teachers fake asses because they're all the same thing they're all the same problem fake money fake teachers fake asses that's why there's no financial education in school and that's why the people I give you the financial education of people that sell you stocks bonds mutual funds and ETFs you're being lied to thank you for listening to Rich Dad you can submit your questions to ask Robert at Rich Dad radio.com thank you to mark
