Today I have a rather unusual and more personal post. Recently I was thinking a few things over about where my life was heading and where I wanted to be. The same morning I had been reading a book called “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki and I must tell you it has been a while since I picked up a book and didn’t let go until the last page.
The book is about how a young kid who was brought up by two Dads, a rich Dad and a poor Dad and how he learned different lessons from each Dad about making money, financial awareness and building assets. But after reading the book, it also gives a much bigger picture.
The book wasn’t just about money and making money - It was about life .
The book describes how the the rich think differently – they think of building assets that will support their families future for as long as possible, rather than trying to consistently find new offers and having to go out hunting for a living all the time.
This was good information but there was something more to it than that.
The book really made me look hard at my own life as a big picture..
And I mean REALLY look.
It threw me into a thinking frenzy for 2 days – in fact I thought so hard my brain hurt – (I’m not joking) .
The book made me realize I was heading in the right direction partly but I had made some big mistakes and I had picked up some bad habits along the way that had diverted my path.
This book made me realize that those bad habits had to go and I must try hard to correct the path and amend mistakes. I only hope that it’s not too late to correct the path and that those who were affected by my own bad habits will show forgiveness.
I’ve never been much of a religious person but I must admit there have been a few moments where I have experienced a feeling of a greater force of guidance that I simply couldn’t explain.
I know, I know..
‘Heavy stuff John” I hear you say..
But I had to write this since I truly believe that there comes a point in everyone’s life where they reach a fork in the road. If you suddenly realize you have been diverted or somehow nudged from the right path for any reason then you must realize that as soon as possible and correct it – get back on the right path.
The moral of this post I suppose is that if you suddenly have a moment of enlightenment, don’t let it go, embrace it – it might just be that something bigger than you is trying to guide you along the right path.
If you are feeling upto a life changing moment then I really would recommend the book..

So, now I’ve got that off my chest I feel a whole lot better and I would welcome anyone else to do the same by leaving a comment below.
I’m not trying to be the vicar of Dibley here or anything but seriously, If there is anything you want to get of your chest, OR if you have ever realized your on the wrong path and had to back track a few steps to correct it, then I’d love to know about it, let me know by leaving a comment below..
