While growing up, everyone has that dream of becoming rich and famous but sadly our college and our textbooks never taught us about how to be rich and make money. In college, everybody taught us to get a good job so we can pay our bills, and I think every student must have felt in their college life that, Is this the only way to earn?. What if I don't get a good job? To be honest, college doesn't prepare us to get a good job but yes during college we are stuffed with thoughts such as 'What will happen if I don’t get a good job' or 'Who will pay my bills after 2 years? 

Hey! Here's some great advice for you. I know getting a good job is not easy but if you know what you love, if you know what makes you feel good, Just follow it.

Many of you have definitely heard about the greatest finance books of all time, Rich dad and Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Whoever has read that book has a different perspective on money and wealth. 

I know you all will be thinking that I am not a commerce/ management student and I don't know much about finances but let me tell you, even if you don't know about different finance terms, still you will understand each and every word in the above mentioned book. The best lesson I have learned from this book is- "Don't spend money, invest money.” 

In school, nobody taught us about important skills, wealth building, money, etc. but you have to understand that you can get all this knowledge from some great books. Be it Rich Dad and Poor Dad or Think and Grow Rich. All you have to do is invest in these books or any fiction books and you can see how your perspective on the world changes.

The worst part is because of this fear you feel like following my passion would be a crime and I have to do something great to get a good job. 

Hey! Here's some great advice for you. I know getting a good job is not easy but if you know what you love, if you know what makes you feel good, Just follow it. Keep on setting higher and higher goals and trust me soon you will love the process.

3 investments that will help you to achieve more

1. Books

Books are your best friends. Just read 20 pages a day, no matter what your age is. Start investing in books is the best advice. What actually happens is if we order some food online and we get that food with some discount, we get very happy that in just 12,00 bucks I got a complete meal but when we think of buying a book, we start giving ourselves excuses that this book is costly and not that famous. 

Books are one of the best investments. It will be worth every penny if it is a good book. Books won't disappear like the food you bought last night. You can read them a gazillion times. Books are best. You can get so much knowledge just by reading a good book. 

Start with a single page, after that two pages, and then three, and trust me you will love the process. In no time, you started feeling like let's read something. You'll soon become an avid reader. 

Read what you like. I am not saying to read this specific book. If you like fiction, read fiction books, if you like memoir read them and non-fiction are also great. Every genre has its own advantage.

2. Skills

We love social media. No really, if we are giving 2-3 hours daily on Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter this means we love social media. 

When it comes to learning a new skill, we often say, Nah, I don’t have time, right? But we have time for social media and unnecessary gossip.

The world is changing rapidly. Knowledge is important. Skills are important and if you don't upgrade yourself, you will become replaceable. Learn so much that you become irreplaceable.

Don't give excuses such as I don't have a good mentor or I don't have good resources. The world is changing rapidly. You can buy any subscription and learn something new daily. 

The single most powerful asset we all have is our minds. If it is trained well, it can create enormous wealth in what seems to be an instant.- Robert T. Kiyosaki.

Advice: Knowledge is the only way through which you can make more assets.

3. Online Notes 

As I've discussed, books are investments and you have to read 20 pages daily. But we are humans, and we easily forget things. 

Make notes if you want to remember what you have read. I won't recommend you to write everything because we have online notes. They are saviours. 

Conclusion

I know getting a good job is not easy but if you know what you love, if you know what makes you feel good, Just follow it. Keep on setting higher and higher goals and trust me soon you will love the process. Make smart investments so you won't regret in the future. Books, Skills, and Online notes are the best investments, especially if you are in your 20s. These are my personal 3 favorite investments but you can decide what you want to go ahead with.
