“What can I do?” Bucky Fuller would ask. “I’m just a little guy…”
Three years after this photo was taken I started to work on what I could do.
I believe we need financial education in our schools and available to everyone, rich and poor alike.
We need an educational system that teaches people to learn from their mistakes, rather than be punished for making them.
We need to teach that there are three sides to every coin—heads, tails, and the edge. Three points of view… with the ‘edge’ representing intelligence and the point from which you can see both sides.

At an early age, I decided I would gain my wealth my rich dad's way—via financial education and acquiring assets.

The other type of rich is the person who does not need a job to be rich. Most of these people are asset-rich.

Financial education is…
The Opposite Side of the Coin
Most people see only the chaos or crisis in an emergency. The opposite side of the coin is the opportunity that lies within every emergency. The opportunity that you can leverage in creating your second chance.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
And from Albert Einstein:
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

And, lastly, from Bucky Fuller:
“We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.”
Lesson for Your Second Chance
b8342459208has quoted2 years ago
Do the Opposite
Here are a few ideas as you consider your second chance and what that could mean to your life, your spirit, your family, and your future:
1. Rather than look for a job, look for problems that need solving.
2. Rather than work hard for money, work hard to serve more people.
3. Rather than ask god for help, find ways you can help god.
I believe the answers to these questions will guide your second chance.

In 1984, Kim and I were very hungry and very foolish.
And Steve Jobs is correct. Being hungry and foolish has been a good thing. If we had not taken our leap of faith into the unknown, we would never have become friends with John Denver, spent an hour with Oprah Winfrey on her television show, co-authored books with Donald Trump, gotten to know Steve Forbes, been granted audiences with world leaders like Shimon Peres, President of Israel, and, most importantly, traveled the world to meet millions of great people like you.
It’s been great being hungry and foolish and I have no plans to change the way I operate.
There are a number of questions I would like you to ask yourself:
1. If I connect the dots of my past, where is my future going?
2. When I was a kid, what questions did I want answered?
3. What do I see that needs to be done—and that no one else is doing?
This is a very important question. Because if you do what needs to be done, without being told how to do it, your true genius will emerge.
4. What cause am I willing to be hungry and foolish for?
5. How much good is my work doing for the world?
That question pushed me over the edge. When I stepped back and looked at my rock-and-roll business, the answer to that question was, “Not much.” I was working hard, making money, but not doing much for the world.

Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
In 1984, Kim and I did something really foolish. We took a leap into the unknown, looking for answers to the same question I had asked decades earlier: Why don’t we learn about money in school?

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
To begin your second chance, take some time and look backwards. Then connect the dots and ask yourself, What in my past is pointing to my future?

“The things to do are: the things that need doing, that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done.”
