If you’re looking for a “Rich Dad” role model, you can’t do much better than the popular motivational speaker and best-selling author, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. Wayne is rich in every sense of the word—in funds, in family, in friends and fans, and in fantastic life experiences. Father of eight and grandfather of five, Wayne believes in giving back.
Growing up in a foster home, Wayne never doubted that he would achieve his goals in life. He earned his way through school all the way to a Ph.D. in educational counseling. When his first book, Your Erroneous Zones, was published, he traveled across the country giving motivational talks and selling books out of the back of his car. Many years and thirty books later, he’s probably the best-known self-help author in America. His message remains the same—you have it within you to achieve your dreams.
In recent years, Wayne has created several self-esteem-building books for kids, including It’s Not What You’ve Got: Lessons for Kids on Money and Abundance A positive, values-driven spin on money and abundance, Wayne’s book could be a great tool for opening the conversation about money that all parents should have with their kids.
Talking openly with kids about money and the role it plays in a person’s life gives them a feeling of confidence and security. Without positive ideas and information, money can become a mysterious and scary monster that comes back to haunt us later in life. Wayne Dyer wants kids to have a healthy relationship with money and to believe in their dreams.
He also preaches faith in abundance, “Love, laughter, and fun, all these things you can’t measure. And believe it or not…they are the real treasure!”
Happy Father’s Day!
