Things Poor People DO That The Rich DON’T
Everyone wants to be rich, but only few people have the attitude and orientation of the rich.
Do you want to be rich? What are some of the things poor people do that hinder their progress?
See how a successful business man breaks it down…
1. Poor People Watch TV Rich People Read Books
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.
2. Poor People Get Paid Based On Time | Rich People Get Paid Based On Results
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.
3. Poor People Blame Others | Rich People Take Responsibility
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.
4. Poor People Focus On Saving | Rich People Focus On Investing
As Dan Lok 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.
5. 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.
