Reasons Why You Should Get Financial Education (Part 2)

[Note: As I put online the second half of the previous post, an Inquirer news report greeted the Philippines (Nov.11.2009)-- Almost a million jobs lost between October 2008 and March 2009. If you still think job security is the way to go, think again and analyze your employer, and your situation. Is it getting ahead financially? Is the business of your company riding the trends, and technology, or is it becoming obsolete? Getting financially educated at these hard times will open up new knowledge and information to you, and why you should be minding your own business, instead of others.]

Here's the second and last part of the 10 reasons why you should educate yourself financially:

6. Solve Problems
Successful entrepreneurs are the richest people on earth. Just look at Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Mark Zuckerberg, just to name a few. What is common with these guys is they solve problems (and continue doing it) for many people. In fact, millions of people.
Entrepreneurs are problem solvers. They see it as an opportunity to do good things and make money from it. They don't run away from problems but face it squarely and seriously.
They have a good financial wisdom trained from educating themselves financially by believing in their goals, acting on their plans and doing without reservations.

7. Fail
Yes! To gain financial education requires you to fail!
Tell me, did you learn to ride a bicycle without falling one time or another?
Mistakes are the best teachers. In your quest for financial success, you'll sure meet a lot of obstacles and failures. And the more mistakes you make, the more you learn and grow, and become closer to success as long as you don't quit.
Because winners never quit.

8. It's Only A Game
Believe it or not, rich people play the money game to win. And for them, making money is just a game.
They don't get personally attached to their products nor the business. Often times, that is hard to realize for someone having a poor mindset.

9. Achieve Your Dreams
There's a major difference between dreaming and achieving dreams. It's actually a two different worlds.
Dreams or goals will only remain as such, unless you act on it. And the good news is, most dreams can be realized by "choice". Financial education holds the key to this entirely new world full of abundance and choices.

10. Get Rich
Why get rich? There's obviously a ton of answers for that question. But whatever your purpose is, I'm sure living an abundant and rich life is rather preferred. Because with abundant and rich comes choice of doing whatever that can make us happy and joyful.
"ANYBODY can wish for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a burning desire for wealth, are the only dependable means of accumulating wealth." - Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich
Teach2Fish aims to spread financial education to share to other people .
The process is available to everyone, but only to those who have the willingness to change themselves, break the limits of their comfort zones and create BIG change not only to self, but for others as well.

Lots of love!
