There's no shortcut to being wealthy -- the Kiyosaki book is big marketing ploy. There's a strong possibility that he even makes more money selling his books than his purported real estate business.

First of all, ask yourself why you want to be wealthy. It's important because money alone is meaningless without an objective and purpose for it. Once you've established a purpose, do the following:

(1) Find a job that you like working for, be it your own business or a company. Unless you like doing what you do, there is no way to rise to the top.

(2) Save as much as possible. No savings == no money to invest.

(3) Find ways to earn more money like doing a side job, consulting etc.

(4) Invest with a rational mind. If it sounds too good to be true, it is probably so. Understand why your particular investment makes sense -- question everything. See my first post for a good book to read on investing -- it's not an easy read like Kiyosaki's book since that book is not a marketing ploy.
