The Poet, Robert Frost (b. 26 March 1874 - d. 29 Jan 1963) whose work was recognized by England and published first time. However, Robert was born in the United States of America. Moreover, the most of his poems depicts the real life of New England in the early 20th century.

He was the only one who had received many honour awards and Pulitzer Price for Poetry four times.

The poem, “The Road Not Taken” is one of the famous poems of Frost that Robert Kiyosaki has published in his book. Furthermore, this poetry has very meaningful thoughts when you read it. Your intention looking at your work, your path of success will definitely change. Talking about a meaningful Punchline in this book so that you get inside the book.

Many of our parents give good advice no doubt, I have never seen a parent giving any bad advice but some of them became successful in their parenting or some got failed. So don’t worry! After reading this book, you may get a chance to parenting again and prove yourself one of the best parents to your kids. Yes, and that is in this book.

Most of the parents will learn how to shape their kids in the proper direction. Many of them who have already read this book treat this as a dusting reads. There is a punchline that makes us think twice or out of the box. We take our child to an expensive school thinking that one day he would come out becoming one of a businessman or a celebrity or a doctor or engineer. However, most of the time it doesn't happen with all.

Mr. Kiyosaki only asks this question at the beginning of his book, “Does school prepare children for the real world?” When any amateur becomes a surgeon and passes his degree out with 1st class but has poor practical knowledge. It would never turn him a successful surgeon. Thus, Mr Kiyosaki makes us realize how important it is to understand this advanced world and changing the education system as per the requirement.

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.

Robert Kiyosaki

However, he said that we as a human constantly bring the change, but the education system is not getting that required change since. Mr. Kiyosaki says that we are trapped in Rat Race, well written, “Rich Dad and Poor Dad” with practical examples of how to get out of the Rat Race. What is Rat Race? It is defined as below,

Go to a good school, get good marks, get hired by a good company, a better job than your neighbour and earn a lot of money.

Perfect example of Rat Race by Robert Kiyosaki.

Study hard and get good grades, and you will find a high-paying job with great benefits.

Opinion

Every parent says stated as above. The first chapter of the book ends with Mr Robert Kiyosaki’s favorite poem The Road Not Taken written by Robert Frost.

Poem: "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged into a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveller,
long I stood And looked down one as far as I could.
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Then took the other as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there,
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay In leaves,
no step had trodden black, Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads onto way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence,
Two roads diverged in a wood,
I took the one less travelled by That made all the difference.

Robert Frost

The poetry gives a message that a road or path when we choose decides our future. And the path that we don’t choose is called “The Road Not Taken” and that made all the difference.
