I personally like what he talks about and I definitely agree with him that the biggest pyramid scheme in America is Corporate America.
I also agree with him on the fact that as a society we spend more time and money focusing on stupid certificates and degree's than we do on what people actually know and can do.
As a society we are more prone to listen to Dr. Phil tell us what is wrong with us and how we are supposed to change, yet we spend absolutely no time really looking at ourselves or trusting ourselves and believing in ourselves and I think that is a shame because all it does is make us into one of the mindless masses otherwise known as Sheeple.
I've been a big fan of Robert Kiyosaki ever since I read an article that he wrote where he says that Corporate America is the biggest pyramid scheme in America.
What he says is not very far off from what I am reading in a book about getting jobs.
I that book the author says that we spend a lot of time focusing on degree's and certificates and we will even equate that with being an expert. He goes on to say that it's kind of like saying you have a certificate saying that you're an expert marksman, but when we take you to the gun range you can't hit the broad side of a barn.
He further goes on to say that thankfully we don't do that with airline pilots and I tend to agree with the author on that as I sure as hell would be the first one getting off the plane if the pilot were to stand up and say 'I've got my certificate saying I know how to fly, but this is my first time in the cockpit of a plane'.
I don't know about the rest of you, but if that were to ever happen I'm making like the cast of a really bad play and exiting stage left off the plane as fast as I could because I certainly would not want to be his guinea pig.
