Lessons from “It’s rising time” by Kim Kiyosaki

kim kiyosaki its rising timeOne of the books I’m reading these days is « It’s rising time » written by Kim Kiyosaki. She is an entrepreneur, investor and famous speaker but she’s also well known as Robert Kiyosaki’s wife.

It’s rising time is her second book, and the main idea of the book is that women need to educate themselves financially and become financially independant, putting cashflow investment into practice.

I’m in the middle of the book, and the book is worth reading even if there are lots of repetitions compared to her first book « Rich Woman ». She continues to encourage women to find their passions, listen to their dreams and build businesses on them, improving their financial knowledge. Of course, in the book, she explains how to fundamentally improve one’s financial knowledge very well.

Here I am writing an article about this book, because I have found some interesting quotes there and I wanted to share them with you.

1. Telling that it’s important to understand who you are, what you want to do, she puts a quote of Dr.Radha :

If you’re doing something that you don’t want to do, that goes against who you are at the core, then that causes conflict within the body and the spirit, which leads to disease.

2. Generally speaking we women worry more than men usually. Even if we decide to do something challenging, sometimes we go through a period of doubt. Here is advice from Kim :

Have you ever journaled ? It’s a simple and extremely effective tool for discovering the truth about yourself and the environment you’re in. (…)
I journal when I’m looking for an answer. It’s a type of meditation for me. I may have a question I’m struggling with, an upset I’m not over, or a habit or behavior I’ve noticed that’s not serving me. I break open my journal, state the issue in writing, and then just write.

She explains that when her energy is low, she simply writes down all the thoughts that come out such as anger, blame, self pity… without analyzing, questionning, or filtering, until she gets an answer.

3. Talking about our spirit, she quotes a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Will

You will be what you will to be ;
Let failure finds its false content
In that poor word, « environment, »
But spirit scorns it, and is free.

It masters time, it conquers space ;
It cows that boastful trickster, Chance,
And bids the tyrant Circumstance,
Uncrown, and fill a servant’s place.

The human Will, that force unseen,
The offspring of a deathless Soul,
Can hew a way to any goal,
Though walls of granite intervene.

Be not impatient in delay,
But wait as one who understands ;
When spirit rises and commands,
The gods are ready to obey.

The river seeking for the sea
Confronts the dam and precipice,
Yet knows it cannot fail or miss ;
You will be what you will to be !

I’m in the middle of this book. If I find others interesting parts, I’ll present you in the next post 🙂

Keep simple, positive, and have a good day !
