The Monopoly game is rather similar to the real world, isn't it? Wealthy people frequently invest in properties to generate income to grow their wealth while the majority travel round in circles to pass “GO” every month to collect salary. Unfortunately, most people choose to play their real life Monopoly this way - by collecting salary, spending on consumables and saving any money left without investing in assets to create more wealth. No wonder most people find it hard to become financially free!
Without a doubt, the Monopoly game has shaped the direction of my life. The game taught me the value of asset ownership which could bring massive income to reach the next financial milestone. It helped developed an entrepreneurial mindset in me. Now, I see myself playing Monopoly in real life and collecting real money from tenants of my properties. My wife and I bought our first “green house” in 2000 - a condominium in Singapore intended to be leased for rental income. Fast forward to today, we now own several “green houses” in Singapore and Australia with more coming in the pipeline. Our “green houses” are providing us with respectable rental incomes that would enable us to buy “red hotels” at the appropriate time. I spend much time researching on the property market and am always on the lookout for any great property to invest in. Another few more residential properties within the next 5 years and I shall be moving on to buy “red hotels” involving commercial real estates. This is my Monopoly game plan for my property investment in the real world.
Having enjoyed the thrill of being a fictitious property tycoon every time you play the Monopoly game, why not move on to play Monopoly in the real world and be a real property tycoon?
