If you’re really serious about having a life of wealth and abundance, you must realize that learning from those who have attained and sustained wealth is not an option but a necessity.
While many people seem to derive a weird sort of pleasure in slandering the rich and affluent, I confess to you that I’m an unrepentant student of the wealthy and affluent.
On my journey to wealth and abundance, I have found that its not just the results that separates the rich from the poor but the little things they do consistently to produce the results they have.
I have often heard billionaires make bold statements like “Take away all my money and I’ll make it back in a year!” While many people consider this to be braggadocio, I call this confidence.
Truthfully, If all the money in the world were shared equally among humans…the money would find its way back to the originally wealthy ones before long and the poor people will return to their original financial state.
So what are the things that sets the rich apart from the poor among us?
There are many things that separates the rich from the poor but in this article, I’ll share 3 of those things with you.
1. The rich take responsibility while the poor wait for fate.
There’s an unspoken mantra among the rich which goes “If its going to be, its up to me” while the poor hold onto failed mantras like “what will be will be” & “if God wants me to have it, He will give it to me” and then wonder why they struggle financially.
It takes deliberate effort to arrive at the place of wealth and abundance, a firm decision backed up by consistent action – these do not happen by chance.
2. The rich are life long learners while the poor stop learning.
I read a staggering report which revealed that “42 percent of college graduates never read another book after college.” Although this report was from an unverified source, it directs our attention toward the decline in reading as a culture.
It will amaze you to know that Bill Gates reads about 10 books each summer while Warren Buffet spends 90% of his office time reading.
Reading opens you up to new ideas and expands the boundaries of what’s possible for you. Make reading a habit rather than an occasional thing for you. Study to improve your financial IQ and become better at the money game.
Read good books, take courses (thank God for the internet), watch videos and listen to audios to help you develop your financial intelligence.
3. The rich make money work for them while the poor only work for money.
Wealthy people know how to put their money to work through investment while the poor only know how to spend their money.
If you really want to be wealthy, then you must begin to read and learn about investing, it will amaze you that there are simple ways to invest your money that you didn’t imagine.
These three things done consistently separates the rich people from the poor among us.
