He is born in 1962. He married to my mother in 1985 and blessed with 4 children.
He has his own sad story which really inspires me. He comes from a very poor family who hardly eat rice twice a week. His has eight siblings and his mother works a rubber taper and his father always on his own lifestyle and doesn’t care for his family. My grandmother was a very poor lady so she does not have enough money and facilities to send my father to school. My father always cries to go to school but my grandma warns him that he should go to work to survive. My father is working since he is six years old. He works from early morning to night with my grandma while all his friends and neighbors were going to school. My father cries until today because he is not educated. Even my mother also not educated. However, today even though he is not educated and comes from an estate, he lives in city self-employed as a taxi driver while owning two houses and two cars in city. In addition, all of my siblings are well educated. My sister obtained a first class diploma from her College and make proud of my father. My father knows a lot of foreigners who have been his customer, he cloud speak English fluently. He is so sociable, no one would trust if I say he has not stepped even one step in school and does not know how an alphabet look like. He achieved all this without help from anyone not even his siblings. He stands on his own feet.

He is a great adviser, he always advices his children to study at our level best and has not beat us for anything, not even for a joke. He is a good listener and the finest kind of friend. He gives us extra freedom which we don’t expect from a father. I could get anything I want without a comment. He always spends time with family. That is why he chooses to be self-employed so that he could be with us anytime we need his assistance. He always thinks about his…...

My Dad Dream

...daily October 14, 2009 JOURNAL ENTRY I came from the big family, and my dad always hoped that we all can graduate university. We came to United State in five different times. Fortunately, we had united in 1985 with my parent and eight brothers and sisters. In the mean time, we all lived together except my other two sisters who already got married. My dad had to work two jobs in order to support the whole family. I just liked a handicap person without speaking English, driving vehicle. As my dad’s dream, I also loved to go to college after graduated from high school. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a good job to help my dad with financial. I could see furrows on his forehead, wrinkles on his face after a few months my family reunion. I felt selfishly to go to school with his supporting. I decided to work hard instead of going to school; because I thought that the only way to share his responsibilities. The time went by, I got married, moved out, and had my own obligations. I had two children, and divorced when my youngest daughter turned six year olds. I still didn’t help him at all when I was raising the children on my own. I step on his foot to work two jobs to support my kids. I was so regretted to make the bad decision. I still burst into tears every time I talked to my children about this. What if I did go back to school, it took me six years the most, so I could make my own living and helped him as well. I taught them how important is......

...Lizet Moreno Professor Allen October 7, 2013 Rich Dad Poor Dad In the book rich dad and poor dad basically was summons up that for an individual to be wealthy, one must aim to own the system or means of the production. In other words the book shows you how to strive for success, there is different types of ways to succeed like the book tells you. The rich dad and poor dad both had strong point of views in earning and succeeding in life, in my opinion I would have followed on the same footsteps Kiyosaki did in following his rich dad. It is true when his poor dad says in order to get somewhere in life you have to get a good education and have a secure safe job but that really isn’t the path to become a wealth person. The rich dad’s opinion differ from the poor dad, he said in order to become wealth you first need to understand how money works. Based on the book rich dad poor dad it taught me and changed my mind in how to deal with money and finance. That financial literacy is key, also rather own business instead of work at them. Also it thought me to understand taxes and the power of corporations. One thing that he helped me understood was when he was explaining that the rich don’t work for money; they force money to work for them, when the rich required assets then liabilities. To know the difference an asset and liability, He quoted that “in order to be truly wealthy, your asset column must be robust and able to offset your living expenses” and that most people think...

Rich Dad, Poor Dad

...Rich Dad Poor Dad is a very interesting book. It is told as story of two Dads which in my perspective, exactly points out the difference between serviced oriented vision of most of the Indian students and business oriented vision in American youth. Poor Dad is like a typical father in middle class Indian family who expects the child to study hard, get degrees, find lucrative job, get promotions, stick to job and save money to build a secure old life. It represents middle class Indian mentality. Due to stiff competition, few succeed in getting high salaried job. But their dreams of becoming rich, seldom come true as there are so many takers whenever the savings accumulate, like govt, income tax etc. and he remains a middle class or at the most upper middle class citizen. Rich Dad represents family head in America who expects his child to become young entrepreneur. He deliberately exposes his child to real world, prompts the child to study how the money moves, how to get money, take risk, grab opportunity, increase assets than liability. He creates urge and desire in child to become business owner, do job initially to earn money not to be used as secure saving for future but as capital seed for his business. True business man knows that desire increases liability and so he spends money not in luxury consumable items or property which invites tax cuts but for investing in projects he knows which will reap benefits. He doesn’t learned himself to become expert and smart. He is...

...spend countless hours online, in the library and talking to others with similar ideas of their latest and greatest “get rich quick” scheme. If only they would put the same effort into actually learning keys to success and reading literature that is actually worth the time you put into it more people would end up living how they always dreamed. For many, that’s all being rich will ever be, a dream. But then there are those who see no other option; they read books, take classes and immerse themselves in knowledge to try and gain an upper hand but even out of these few there are even less that will actually succeed in actually fulfilling their dream of becoming rich. However, there is hope, but only if you put in the work. The book Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki is a great place to start. It provides a solid foundation for those who wish to exit the “rat race” and start on the path to financial freedom. This book can be truly inspirational for someone who has had the dream of financial freedom but just didn’t know where to start or perhaps where to stop. It is thought that being rich is in the eyes of the beholder; but what does it truly mean to be rich? Perhaps it is just a number that makes us rich, but what would this number be; 60, 70, 80 or maybe even 100 thousand? Many believe it is a personal preference, but there is a way you can determine once you have truly have become rich. One is has not achieved the status of calling themselves “rich” until they......

The Death of a Dad

...for about 20 years. I thought my father was going to die 20 years ago. He had a heart attack. His brother had died in his 60’s of a heart attack and his father had died of a heart attack in his 60’s. My father was 61, not a good record. So I cherished every day I had with him these last twenty years. To make it another 20 years is truly remarkable. We owe that mostly to two things: my mother and his grandchildren. My mom and dad were married almost 49 years, another pretty remarkable thing. I will never, ever forget how well my mother took care of my father. As with everything in our house, she was in charge of his health, thank god. Thank you mom for all you did. My father loved his grandchildren. Every single time I spoke to him he would say, how’s the baby. In the last couple of years I would say what baby? He would say you know who I’m talking about. I would say dad she’s ten. I said to him one day you treat your grandchildren better than your own children, he said that‘s because I had to raise you! My father could be brutally honest. My father’s happiest days were having everyone at his house, all his children and grand children. Many a birthday or anniversary we were all in my parent’s backyard having a great time. One of the great memories I have is being at my cousin Michele’s wedding last summer. We were all there. And if we were at a wedding and there was a microphone he was going to use it. Of course he sang My Way by Frank Sinatra. He......

Drinkin' with Dad

...Drinkin’ with Dad My family likes to drink. In fact, looking back on my life, it is really what we did together the most. It seemed like it was the one thing we were best at and proud of. My Dad used to own a bar. I began working at my Dad’s bar when I was still in school. I would walk to the bar after football practice work at the bar. On weekends I would work one night in the back. My brother John worked there too and my brother Brian got sent away. One time we were drinking at the bar and some of the guys were arm wrestling. I pretended I was beating Stan the bouncer and my Dad got mad at me for it. My Dad, thought that I was really dissing Stan. My Dad then went to the bottle bin, took out two empty beer bottles and smashed the bottoms off of them. He then told me to stand opposite him. We’ll hold these bottles out here (about a foot away from our respective faces), and at the count of ‘three’, we’ll grind this broken glass into each other’s faces. Just then, Stan got between us and grabbed my Dad’s “bottle” hand. He broke us up and Dad gave Stan a fake smile. He did not look at me and went to sit down. My Dad was not always like this, especially now that he does not drink anymore. I guess experiences like this let me know at an early age that my Dad could not really be counted on. This made me more independent. This was what was considered a typical experience for a......

My Dad Is a Good Guy

...Abhinivesha remains until you die. Although everyone knows that one day they will one hundred percent die, fear of death is still buried in the mind. The first stage of working with the kleshas is to acknowledge them. Reflection promotes self-awareness, self-understanding and self-knowledge to uncover and see the kleshas and their roots. For a while i have had trouble find happiness in my life, and have been very depressed. While researching the yamas, niyamas, and kleshas, I realized that there are other ways to find happiness besides money, friends, and food. For many years I relied on money, friends, and food to bring me happiness, so this research opened my eyes to happiness. I believe practicing yoga will absolutely help with my depression. I have had a hard time connecting with God lately, so hopefully yoga class helps with that too. I could not think of a better time in my life to begin doing yoga. If yoga helps with my depression, which I genuinely believe it will, I can see myself practicing yoga for the rest of my life. In addition, I will pass the practice of yoga on to my friends and family. I really hope there are more yoga classes like the one I am in right now....
