The Drive Behind A Millionaire – Robert Kiyosaki [Millennial Money]

The Drive Behind A Millionaire – Robert Kiyosaki [Millennial Money]

(upbeat music) – Buenos dias, millennials. And welcome back to another Advanced Lesson in Millennial Money. I’m your host, Alexandra Gonzalez. Today, we have an incredibly
special interview for you guys. Where I sat down with Robert, and saw a side of him
I’ve never seen before. One that was honest, truthful, raw, and it got a little emotional. But in this episode, we find out why a millionaire like
him does what he does. What guides him and what drives him. So let’s use this episode
to enlighten us all on how to find out true purpose in life. – I just know that, like your father, he went to military school
and I went to military school, and noticed the people that have had really tough mental, emotional, physical and spiritual
training, they’re tougher. So I came out of the
academy, like your dad, he went in the Navy, I
went in the Marine Corps, and we come out tougher,
internally stronger. And I don’t know how you guys get that. I call it spiritual
intelligence at this point. Let me draw this (mumbles),
you guys have seen it before. But again, if you look at it this way, this is intelligences, and this is what makes us human beings. We have mental intelligence. we have physical intelligence, you know, like Tiger Woods
is a fantastic golfer. I suck, you know. And then you have emotional intelligence, and emotional intelligence,
they call it EQ, is the most important. Because I get my feelings
hurt all the time, I get angry, I hallucinate in my head, I think things that aren’t true, but the biggest one of
all is the spiritual. Difference between mental and
spiritual, it’s very simple. Mental causes two. So man, woman, good, bad, up, down. Where spiritual is one, so
I’ll give you an example. Why do I do my work? Yesterday, I was driving down the road and I saw this young
guy, just broke my heart. He’s standing there in
the hot Phoenix sun, he says “unemployed, need money to feed the kids,” and all that. Now, mentally I could
say get a job, you idiot. But spiritually, I am him. I feel for him. So in my work, I work for this. I don’t need the money. My teacher was R. Buckminster Fuller, and he says “I don’t work
for me, I work for everyone.” And that was one the biggest lessons I got from the military, from the military was very high spiritual intelligence. That’s why you dad and
I get along so well. Because when we went into combat, which is a horrible experience of good and bad people, enemy and friends. But when we climbed into our aircraft, it was a crew of five, we became one. It is the best feeling,
as horrible as it is, flying into combat, because
we might not come back. But it was the highest feeling
of all, it was spiritual. And I’m afraid, as not just millennials, as as human beings, well
is this good, is this bad? Is this the best Vuitton shirt? Can I get it at a better price? Or he’s cute, or she’s cute,
but is there somebody better? Right? – Yeah, I mean that’s
exactly what’s going on. – So you guys are stuck in your head, and I think you should
get more into your spirit. Like saying what can I do
for my fellow human being? What can I do for the environment? And I think the biggest
secret of my success is I have all, and we all have these. We all have some degree
of physical things we do, emotionally I’m a basket
case a lot of the time, I get upset, I get angry, I get
sad, I get my feelings hurt, and I’m always this is good, this is bad. You know, you watch politics,
it’s all good and bad. It’s a bunch of BS. But what keeps me going is
this, and it’s spiritual, is how can I serve others? How can I serve the planet? How can I fix this problem? Millennials, it’s not just millennials, it’s just human beings in general, if you can get back to being one. Being compassionate. You’ll always have idiots here, you’ll always have idiots
here and idiots here, but just stay in your spirit. It’s like when I saw that guy, he’s probably 45 years
old, I couldn’t imagine being a father saying I
need money for my kids. I gave him a few bucks,
but it doesn’t help. When I gave him a few bucks, I was saying hey, we’re one, I feel your pain. And so what’s happening I think, it’s not just millennials, it’s human. Human beings are idiots, you know? We inflict a lot of pain, but this is spiritual intelligence. Is how do we make it one? Like my love of trees, when I see people cutting down trees, I wanna kill them. (laughing) And then the oceans,
it just breaks my heart because I grew up in the oceans. So when we’re in our spiritual, in our hearts, in our
silence of the brain, of the mind, that we’re most effective. – And I think you nailed it there Robert, because I think a lot of
us haven’t made the shift from being just in mental to spiritual. And so we’re so
concentrated on me, me, me, and it’s because of the era we grew up in. Just all these platforms
are just about me. And so I think if a lot of us made the shift from mental to spiritual, and concentrated on the greater good, we’d do a lot better in
life, be more successful too. It’s sad that we have
lived our lives so small, instead of thinking bigger. And I think what you said too, is what really pushed
you are these critics, and when your feelings have been hurt. And I grew up and I had a hard time because my dad, the Marine,
he grew up with four brothers, and here we are four women,
growing up with a soldier, and he would push us in a very hard way. And I don’t think I
understood until now why that. And I took it very painfully, but it also, I understand now that it
was for the greater good. And that’s what pushed me, and I think we need to use these
platforms that we have to develop that, and find that pain, and create into something good. – Yeah, go here. – Go spiritual. So when I see these
comments, what helped me know that they have a little
bit of truth behind them, and help them make me
into a better person. – And so the compliment I
will pay to millennials, I think your generation is
more socially conscious. You wanna take on these challenges, you wanna right the wrongs of the past, so you’re more stepping
up to, hate to say it, but what the military was. Where we’re here not for us, we’re here for a higher cause. And I noticed that with the millennials, you guys are more looking for
a spiritual purpose in life. And that’s the difference. You find that spiritual purposes, like the reason I teach,
I don’t need the money, I just need to teach what I was taught. And it wasn’t taught in school. So anyway, if you can stay,
there’ll always be idiots here. A hundred years from now, there’ll still be idiots out here. – Yeah, and I think that’s
what keeps you going. So many people are like whoa, Robert has all this
money, what is he doing? Why is he giving us all
this free information? And I think that it’s your spirituality that just keeps you going
and won’t let you stop. – I used to remember my teacher said “I do not work for me,
I work for everybody.” If you work for everybody,
whether saving trees, or the environment, or the
oceans, picking up litter, like I don’t know if you see me outside our building here, these guys, bunch of drunks out here all the time. – All the time, it’s scary. – Lot of good bars, but a
lot of drunks too, you know? But they just throw
trash around the place. I wasn’t trained to do that,
I’m trained to pick it up. And so if you pick it
up, you’re spiritual. If you criticize, you’re mental. – Wow, I’m so glad we got to
see another side of Robert we don’t get to see that often. And I know we teach a lot about money, but it’s not just about
that, it’s so much more. And while being successful is important, we also have to be proud about what we do. So I hope this episode guides you towards your true passion

    usually its the job of the leader of a company to get the staff work together so they are one team.bad leaders are more concerned to be liked then to get them to do that

  21. girlonlaptop says:

    If you don't "need money" or a job why did you join the military as an officer which pays the highest in the military? Obviously you needed money.

  22. Henry C says:

    Robert is preaching the military made him into the success he is today, yet how can he explain so many homeless vets and vets committing violence in the civilian world? I think the military has nothing to do with the type of person you turn out to be. You are either born benevolent or not.

  23. Ali Ataya says:

    I don't work for me I work for everybody!i🙏🙏🙏👍

  27. Aristote Kalenda says:

    My accounting teacher described me yesterday the 4 cash flow quadrant which is Employee, Self employee, , business and investor. I was just wondering why he is still an employee with a job security as he has an entrepreneurship mindset. Maybe he is afraid to take risk

  28. Ayoka Moss says:

  30. Josiah X says:

    This is a excellent video that everyone needs to learn from, especially in this ego heightened society. Alexandria Gonzalez, I love how you are learning this information from Robert and passing it on. . .

  31. Dustin Miller - PolyInnovator says:

    Whoa this is hitting real close to home. I created what I call the Four Pillars Philosophy: MIND BODY SPIRIT AND EMOTIONS. It is amazing to see someone come to the same conclusion. Honestly what I created was a path to understand the balance between them in a modern age, but people from all over history have thought of this. When someone is "intelligent" enough, particularly in two or more areas, it starts to make more and more sense. Especially if you come from a really low level, when you rise you appreciate it more.

  32. Stick Bogart says:

    Keep doing what you’re doing I wish you would look me up on LinkedIn

  33. Detail Enthusiast says:

    Being successful is important? What is success? When do you reach it & when is it take away and by who's standard?

  34. mohd al-azizi says:

    If you criticise you are mental woww..

  35. adrian garcia says:

    Powerful advice thank you sir!

  36. Gigsro Uiy says:

    Japanese-American using those Jerry Lewis Chinese glasses a little too small for his head. That's funniest shitt he should also where fake Bugs Bunny teeth. Anyway it's good to have Robert Kiyosaki around very unique guy to have in the freedom-loving camp, a true precious metals bug, and fall is a good strategy that is to always be in a position where you're owing something so that you can use that as a tax deduction, and this way one can avoid paying taxes. Of course the assets are there but you don't pay taxes on assets until you sell those assets and even then there are ways around paying taxes at least a good portion of taxes. Robert speaks the truth about reality how this world operates, of course he leaves out many pertinent and important facts. I like the fact that this time around this crisis is little more different not only that it is a global wide end of economic super Cycles but that's it is going to potentially involved New World Order Global wide communist regime what the abolishment of private property and currencies that can be used to avoid taxes. So the strategy is to digitize and make all paper money or currency a thing of the past. My question is how old politicians get their cocaine and hookers without leaving a digital Trail?

  37. Sachin Ardao says:

    She is beautiful 😍 aww! melted my heart

  38. Brian Thomas BRIANSBEAT says:

    Alex, this segment is one of your best. Throughout my life, us baby boomers have been described as the most self-centered and socially conscious. Each generation fits the above pros and cons, because their generation does have more than any previous generation. This episode reminds me of a piece Robert and Kim put out about east meets west on healthcare philosophies. Thank you for this segment!

  39. Kahn Nu-wen says:

    Thank you Mr. Kiyosaki, Namaste.

  40. Alexander Roberts says:

    Any Centennials here?

  41. Abbas Wandara says:

    Thank you Robert . You are a gift to the universe.

  42. gsc king says:

    You are great ##

  43. Crab Out The Bucket says:

    Real shit for sure 💯

  44. touchdownraiders2009 says:

    What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but to loose his soul. I love Robert but he is blind to the truth. He will be dead in 10 years and can’t take his riches with him.

  45. BocaDelCielo Playa says:

    Spirituality is another subject that should be taught AND practiced in school…then practiced in the workplace as well…for a better society.

  46. Zarach & Bo says:

    I believe that if prayers weren't taken out of the fake schools/fake teachers system…people now would've been better equipped spiritually

  47. Igor Karpiuk says:

    That's right, i have no idea what to do until i finally find the purpose in everything

  48. Deshon Miller says:

    School has destroyed the minds of the people. Thanks for given us some game of knowledge! PEACE

  49. sridhar susindhran says:

    I feel Robert, people around me so called friends in childhood but not really anymore cuz they used to tease me for helping mentally disabled persons and poor people on road side, one day I decided not to end up with bunch of idiots anymore and stood up against everyone teased me then had some few true friends really I can see humanity in their deeds. My friends circle got smaller but it's really meanfull circle to work with and do business in more humane way.

  50. NeedForCars says:

    Love the videos, love the books and the man !! Just got my game last week, keep up the good work!!

  51. A. G says:

    Thanks Braddah Alohas🤙🏽

  52. Dav Mac says:

    here we are in a wealthy plane filled with wonders, we have the technologies to feed everyone to give to everyone a better quality of life and yet we keep asking to ourselves, where are the money to do all this. but what is money if not something we human beings have invented? How stupid the leaders of this world have become, at this point I don't know if another world war is a good thing or a bad bad thing after the 2 world war people had few good years of prosperity, do we need a third world war to regain what has been lost? Time is money but there is one problem time and money exist only because humans invented both. Is just a game? That is what life is a monopoly came where real people die from starvation, making the game more interesting?

  53. pira76 says:

    Robert is my lifetime mentor. Wish I had the resources to stay closer to him when I was younger. He speaks to the soul

  54. Lewis Burton says:

  63. Rinku Tiwari says:

    Time is money, money is work, work is knowledge. I think the whole world is fake. When I sleep, the world is gone after waking I see world again. My question is " Whose is fake money, people' thought, time and our life? "

  64. Jitesh Verma says:

    I love the content. U are my father figure Robert Kiyosaki Sir. I am following your advices and ur teachings. That's why I dropped the plan for job. Right now I am 19 yo and pursuing my bachelor's degree. As u say Fake Money, Fake Teachers, Fake Assets that's what literally is happening. In my college my so called "Accounting" Teacher taught that "Our house and Car is an asset". Then I tell her that that they are liabilities, then she said no they are not you are wrong. Such a moron she is😂😂 and all the fucking fake teachers😂😂. Just a whole pile of bullshit.
    Love u sir. Please keep making content. Right now I am reading cashflow quadrant and finished rich dad poor dad

  65. Alina Brad says:

    Who’s her dad

  66. She Wolf says:

  67. Julo Gálvez says:

    A REAL teacher…. Thank u Robert. I would like to get that talk extended. Can Robert explain how to canalize that spiritual intelligence into our daily lives. It would be awesome.

  68. Loui says:


  69. Heart Centrepoint says:

    Rob, but your money plan is exacerbateing the disparity.

  70. Heart Centrepoint says:

    We don't have a choice but to step up to spiritual purpose because Robert's generation didn't think about others or even their kids and trashed this earth.

  71. Lubosi Maboshe says:

    Yeah Alex thanks.Yeah Robert is really cool, and a great leader. We got you! Take care.

  72. Banks of Barcelona says:

    Living a life of purpose that involves applying the greatest commandments of loving God and people as you love yourself to solving pressing problems with God's help in a way that impacts people positively, hence make the world prosperous. This is the height of spirituality

  87. karlos al says:

    JesusChrist said we are eternal spirit beings living inside a dying mortal body….when we die eternity starts either in Hell or Heaven Gods house …..u choose …do your will takes u to Hell do Gods will takes u to heaven….you actions take u to ur eternal future….
    JesusChrist came to show us how to live on his planet…we are to imitate JesusChrist….or at least Repent cause …evil starts in your thoughts/brain..and than your body acts…envy hate lust….this are unseen crimes against our fellow humans…we all have done…and God calls it crimes against his laws…….thats why JesusChrist came to redeem us ….cause we inherited rebellion against God
    …the bible Gods constitution for his planet earth…its clear we all have broken Gods divine moral laws…..God lives in heaven he owns planet earth his rules his laws…if u ever decide to become a deciple of JesusChrist…we teach u that protecting humans are Gods priority and doing his will not our will…
    Its simple you live in a temporary system
    Created by almighty God….it is his intellectual property
    Key notes
    God hates evil actions done by humans to their fellow humans…
    God judges our thoughts he knows what you are thinking before u use your body to do the crime ….
    JesusChrist said if u hate your fellow human it's a big crime is equivalent to killing a human here in the physical world we live in…
    satan loves your evil thoughts…a d actions. …cause he knows that u become his partner in crime against God if u do not repent …
    I wish I could be politically correct with u creatures .
    Advise from x liberal who use to hate God

    Good evening, Mr. Kiyosaki.
    I would be glad if you answered the following question in the next episode of the Millennial Money series: It's true that currency (money, banknotes, coin, cash) will disappear in the future and won't be used as a payment method anymore?
