What differentiate the rich from the poor is in their habits. We are all a sum of our choices and unluckily most people who are poor are that way because they chose to be imprisoned by habits of poor people.
Aristotle once said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, is not an act but a habit.”
By avoiding poverty, then you must examine your daily choices and see if they are leading you to wealth or the opposite. And you must cut yourself lose of the habits of poor people and welcome rich people’s habits to have a better life and a brighter future.
Here are some of the habits of poor people you must let go or give a wide berth to if you want to avoid poverty and be rich.
#1: Idle Talk.
Poor people stand around early in the morning or surrounding newspaper stands and just talk their lives. They often have verbal energy to dissipate. They never take a moment to meditate or digest things about their lives. They just want to talk, talk and talk and forever chitter-chatter if you allow them. Wasted verbal energy is as good as money and that time used or spent talking could have been used to cook up some business idea. Look around you, how many millionaire do you know that talk too much?.
Poor people always hunt temporary pleasure. They don’t think nor foresee the future. They are always interested in what they can get now and what they can enjoy in the moment. They don’t understand the need for self discipline, because they are all about acting of compulsion. They spend to eat, spend everything now and give no thought to the future; to become poor is the easiest thing in life, all you need to do is to make wrong choices and habits consistently therefore if you don’t want to end up being poor, is about time to make necessary changes to prevent that journey.
The most common habits of poor people is that they see themselves a disadvantaged. Their believe is that life has dealt them an unfair hand and in that case they must simply accept their fate and forever beg, they want to forever be charity cases and warfare projects forever. There is nothing wrong with going through a rough time patch but if your mind accepts it as your destiny then you will most likely remain poor.
