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.
MY POOR FATHER OFTEN SAID “I’D RATHER BE HAPPY THAN RICH.” MY RICH FATHER WOULD SAY “ISN’T IT BETTER TO BE BOTH HAPPY AND RICH?” – ROBERT KIYOSAKI
Here are the most common traits of poor people:
Rich people don’t need to find excuses for their laziness. Do you know why? Because they are not lazy. For them, obstacles are not something that definitively derails their chance of success, but just another stepping stone to overcome. Do you think that every athlete, actor, musician or bank president has always had it easy, so they achieved what they achieved? Often, even rich people are those who faced extreme poverty when they were young. Instead of being stifled by it, instead of being told that their dreams are impossible to fulfil, they worked harder and longer than others, or studied more diligently.
You, too, be like the rich people-just tell yourself that you “don’t give a damn” about all the adversity, because you will reach your goal anyway. Ask yourself – how are you investing your time and money? Stop making excuses and being lazy. Even if you don’t want to and it requires effort, dedication, sacrifice, but will bring you benefits in the long run, get to work. Do what you need to do, when you need to do it.
