6) Learn how to handle debt

‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’ shows you how to use debt wisely. It emphasises the distinction between good debt, which provides revenue, and bad debt, which drains wealth.

7) How to achieve financial success

Kiyosaki recommends focusing on financial education that offers actual wealth-generating techniques. Viplav Majumdar, Founder and Director of said the book questions the conventional wisdom that a high degree of formal education is required to achieve financial success. 

8) Develop an abundant mindset

This book advocates for moving from a scarcity attitude to an abundance mentality. Positivity and belief in one's potential to produce riches might attract possibilities.

9) Accept and learn from failure

Kiyosaki emphasises the necessity of learning from mistakes and setbacks. Failing may be an advantageous educational experience that results in personal and financial development.

10) Invest in yourself

According to Viplav Majumdar, the book promotes personal growth and the constant improvement of one's talents. Investing in oneself can boost one's potential for earnings and financial success.
