Do you want to be rich? What are some of the things poor people do that hinder their progress?
Here are some of the beliefs and habits that are keeping you poor.
Rich People Read Books | Poor People Watch TV
Warren Buffett the third richest man in the world, still aims to read 500 pages every single day. He knows the knowledge gained is priceless.
In fact it’s a remarkably common theme among the world’s most successful people. They all swear by reading as much as possible. So throw your TV out the window and pick up a book that will improve you as an individual and begin the process of becoming the best version of yourself.
Rich People Get Paid Based On Results | Poor People Get Paid Based On Time
It’s important to grasp that results are the real currency of the world, not effort. For some this is a shocking revelation.
It does not matter if you are the best at your specific job. If you are not contributing to the bigger picture you will be seen as just another number.
Don’t be afraid of making big moves, shock everyone and change the world.
Rich People Take Responsibility | Poor People Blame Others
Don’t fall into the blame trap. Blaming external circumstances take away your power! No matter the challenge, it is your responsibility to change it.
Rich people gain self confidence from knowing that their lives are in their own hands if they want better they do better. Stop blaming, start acting.
Rich People Focus On Investing | Poor People Focus On Saving
As the author said “you don’t have a saving problem, you have an income problem.” If you’re broke you need to make more, not save more. One of the things poor people do is stress over money, rich people see it as a tool, a resource that can be used to get to where they need to be.
Money saved money does not grow, put your money to work, don’t squirrel it away for when you’re too old to live your best life.
Poor People Think They Have All The Answers
If you ask a poor person why they are poor they will give an answer or rather their belief, why they are poor. One of the things poor people do is talking about other people rather than ideas. Poor people tend to be opinionated about anything that is outside their realm of influence. Rich people are continuously learning, continuously growing and stepping out over their own boundaries in the search for self development.
What’s worse than people than have an opinion on everything? People that listen to them! It does not matter how perfectly you do things or how successful you become there will ALWAYS be haters. Haters will drag you down to their level if you let them, that’s all they want, to feel equal.
Put the blinkers on, don’t look back, you’re not going that way.
Poor People Believe Money Is Evil
Money can be used for good or evil. While it’s true there are evil people with money in the world, most of the richest people in the world are extremely charitable. Money is just an object and people who see it as being evil are generally just using that as another excuse because they fear going after their dreams.
Be the change you want to see in the world, becoming wealthy comes with the privilege of being able to help others. Become wealthy and make the world a better place.
Poor People Possess Lottery Mentality
One of the things poor people do, is believing in fantasy like winning the lottery or that they’ll just ‘get lucky.’ You make your own luck! stop dreaming and start doing. Success is not a lottery, you don’t become successful by wishing. You become successful by consistently taking massive determined action!
Decide where you want to be and don’t stop until you get there. Make it happen.
