THE THIN LINE BETWEEN THE RICH AND THE POOR
There is a very thin line between POVERTY and WEALTH called MINDSET.The rich have a whole different mindset from the poor. They transfer that mindset to their kids and people around them and that is what makes the rich people richer. The poor do the same, transfer the poor mindset to their kids and to those around them and thats why the poor are growing poorer everyday. This explains why the gap between the rich and the poor is widening everyday.
I the other day read a book on why Environment is more important than heredity.We speak the language we speak because of the environment we grew up in.Our walking style, culture, food and behavior is a product of the environment we have spent most of our time in.Choose your environment wisely.
The reason i believe we have a very thin line between the poor and the rich is because of the few things i have personally observed and things you have observed too.Lets take a few examples:
1) both the rich and the poor keep dogs in their homes,However, the rich keep dogs as pets while the poor keep them for security😂
2)Both the rich and the poor keep cats, but the rich keep them as pets whereas the poor keep them to keep away the Rats.
3)Both the rich and the poor have 24hrs each in a day, the poor spend their day working for others while the rich do the same working on their businesses.
4)Both the rich and the poor use Banking services, However, the poor run fixed deposit and savings account while the rich run corporate accounts to borrow, borrow and do more borrowing to build their companies.
5)Both the rich and the poor use Vehicles for transport.The rich own the best cars available. Mostly you find them using 5/7 seater cars to work and back Alone. On the other end you find a 14 seater matatu overloaded to upto 20 people.
6)Both the rich and the poor live in Houses.The poor have like 20 families on a 40×80 piece of land(Rentals) while the rich live a single family on an acre piece of land in very expensive estates.
Regardless of where you are right now or have been previously,we all have a chance to choose either side of the coin.
The richest man in the planet says, if you were born poor, it ain’t your mistake, however, if you die poor, it is your mistake.
The list is endless. All i hope is that my point is home. All am saying is, change your mindset and your financial status will also change.
