They say that money doesn’t make you happy, but being poor doesn’t make you happy either.
Banknotes in themselves won’t make you smile from ear to ear (unless you win the lotto, but that will still be a temporary happiness). However, money can give you a lot of opportunities that you wouldn’t have as someone who is barely making ends meet. After all, it’s not about how much money you have, but rather what you do with it. Poor people tend to think differently, have different habits and a different way of approaching life than rich people. That is why it is easier for people with a ‘good attitude’ to make a living or to bounce back after bankruptcy. Poor people, on the other hand, can let go of assets they inherit or win.
Learn the six most common mistakes poor people make. Avoid them and you may one day make a pretty good fortune yourself.

Here are the most common traits of poor people:
Another infamous attribute of people who are unlikely to achieve anything great in life is whining. People with a winner’s mentality don’t like to waste their time complaining because they know it won’t do any good. In fact, it can take something away – their good mood and their precious time. If something doesn’t suit them – they change it, not just talk and talk. And if they can’t do something about it, they just know that they have to put up with it.
Can’t you do that? Think you might have a problem with complaining? Here’s a simple solution – set an alarm on your phone three times a day signed ‘Remember not to complain‘. Each time the alarm rings, remind yourself of the last thing you complained about. Think back to it and ask yourself- “What can I do about it?”. If nothing, say to yourself in your mind: “Tough, I can’t change it“. And if there are possibilities, put them into practice, or stop being a malcontent altogether.
After using this method for a while, you will notice that you catch yourself complaining about something on a regular basis. Then try to “turn the cat on its head” and think about the advantages of a particular thing. Look for even ridiculous and funny positives of a situation and you will see that your mood will improve instead of deteriorating. You will end up wasting energy and time on unnecessary anger and bitterness.
