8 REAL Things Poor People Do That The Rich Don’t

8 REAL Things Poor People Do That The Rich Don’t


YouTube is filled with videos such as 10 things
poor people do that the rich don’t or 15 things rich people do that the poor don’t
or something along those lines. Many of them are quite interesting and are fun to watch
but they don’t really explain the difference. DO you really think that the difference between
the rich and poor is that, poor people watch tv while the poor don’t or rich people shower
more often compare to the poor? Neither do I, If you suddenly start showering
more often or watching less TV, you are not going to get rich
because the real difference is in the mentality, in the way, the play the game of money. And
in this video, we are going to take a look at 8 things that poor people do that are keeping
them poor. Number 1, Poor People Play Defence If you were to play any game strictly on defense,
what are the chances of you winning that game? extremely low or none, right?
And yet, most people play the game of money exactly like that. Their primary goal is not
to win or to be at the top but rather not to lose. They just want to pay all the bills
and stay out of the debt. The problem with this strategy is that when
your goal is to simply to be above the water, that’s maximum what you will get. Of course, some people are little better than
that, they save 10 percent of their income, invest it in the stock market and just hope
that the stock market doesn’t collapse so that when they get old, they will have something
to rely on. But until then, they will be locked into the
comfort zone of a small paycheck! There is absolutely nothing wrong with that,
but if your goal is to simply pay the bills, you will just stay wherever you are.
If you want to create real wealth, you should stop playing defense and start playing offense
and shoot for the stars. As a wise man once said: “If you shoot for
the stars, you’ll at least hit the moon.” 2. Next, Poor People Do Not Value Freedom When I say freedom, I do not mean living in
a democracy or not. Freedom means living the life that you want, and not the one that someone
else wants you to live, doing what you want, how you want and where you want! That’s why you find a lot of people say: Money
isn’t important! Don’t make your life all about money! or the most famous of them: Money
is the root of all evils! And yet you find those people working all
of their life from morning till evening for some pennies just to keep the bill collectors
away from their house. doing the job that they wish they can quite,
not only because they hate the job, but they also probably hate their boss! and if they
had the opportunity, they would quit that job. That’s why money equals freedom!
So, how do you expect yourself to chase money if you look at it as something negative? Rich
people keep getting richer because it gives them more and more freedom to do with their
lives what they want. 3. Number 3, Poor people work hard for their
money It sounds a bit controversial, aren’t you
suppose to work hard for your money. Let me explain.
What do most people do if they want to make more money? They work harder to get promoted
and if that’s not enough, they might consider working overtime or getting a second job. 
The problem with this is that, no matter how much you are paid, at the end of the day,
your time is limited. And rich people perfectly understand that,
so instead of working hard for their money, they let their money work hard for them. 
They look at money as a tool that can earn them even more money and not simply a piece
of paper they can use to buy what they want like most people treat money. Of course, first you probably will have to
work hard for the money, but it’s temporary for the rich while it’s permanent for the
poor. Once you make enough where your money can replace you, you will have more freedom! 4. Number 4, Poor People Focus On Obstacles One of my friends wants to start a chain of
restaurants. In fact, he has been telling me that for the last 3 or 4 years but every
time I ask him why he hasn’t started yet, he typical response, I don’t have the money
and I don’t want to get into debt. And that’s the problem.
Poor people are constantly looking for something to go wrong.
In these 4 years, he could have found an investor or at least saved up enough to start.
He hasn’t even studied the market, he doesn’t even have a plan. He believes that if he gets
the money, the rest will somehow magically happens. But what will end up happening is
that, he will just come across another obstacle. It doesn’t matter what business you want
to get in, there will always be obstacles, there are millions of things that could go
wrong. And if you are like my friend who isn’t
doing anything but complains how difficult it is, you are probably in the same dark financial
position that he is. Some people are even on a different level, even if they have the money and all the essentials,
they will say things such as: What if it doesn’t work? What if people are going to know that
I have failed! For God’s sake, no one cares about that. 5. Poor people chose to be paid based on time How often do you hear people say, I deserve
to be paid 50 bucks an hour or 60 bucks. I have a degree from such and such school, I
work harder than any else, I am smarter or more talented.
You know what! No one gives a damn, Would you watch this video because I have
spent so and so hour creating it? What matters at the end of the day is how
much value you can deliver. You might be working harder than Jeff Bezos,
but Bezos will be making 4.5 million dollars an hour and you won’t because while you
are complaining, his company is providing value to millions of people all around the
globe. 6. Poor People resent rich and successful
people The other day, I was watching an interview
with a successful and quite famous entrepreneur. Then, I scrolled down to read some of the
comments and a lot of people were like. THis douchbag doesn’t deserve to be on this
channel, he is a scumbag. And it really freaked me out, the guy worked
hard to be in that position, Even if he has inherited some of his wealth, he is probably
much more disciplined than you. Some people seem to have some kind of moral
obligation to hate the top 1 percent or certain rich families.
Here is a lifehack! instead of hating them, how about you join
them! 7. poor people think they know everything This is the most ridiculers one. What do people
do when they face financial problems. They complain about it, there are bazillion number
of things you can blame, starting from politicians that run the country and ending it with your
boss. But if you tell him to pick up a book and
learn even the basics of money management. He will tell you, this is my money and I know
how to take care of it, Well, if you have figured everything out,
why on earth you are always broke. And then they will give you even more excuses. And it’s not only about money. But everything
else. haven’t you realized when people get into an argument, they try to prove that they
are right, even if they are not, instead of trying to learn? And to be honest, I have had this mentality
back when I was a teenager, I was quite stubborn. But then I realized that, If I keep going
like this, I am never going to grow, So I stopped acting like I know everything, and
start paying attention to my flows and How can I fix them. 8. Poor People Mismanage their money Knowing how to manage money isn’t something
you are born with, but rather you have to learn. Just because you are making money,
doesn’t mean you know how to manage it properly. People think that if they start managing their
money, it will restrict their freedom. They don’t want to stick to a certain budget
or think hard before buying something. They finally got the paycheck and they wanna enjoy
it. But the truth is, if you don’t manage your money, you will never achieve financial
independence and that short term feeling of mindless satisfaction isn’t real freedom. 
And secondly, people think that you need to make a lot of money to manage it. Trust me,
it gets way more difficult than you think and if you can’t even handle your paycheck
properly, do you think you can manage 10 times that amount? By now, you probably have already realized
that what makes poor people really poor is a poor mentality and not having money is one
of the consequences of that. The good news is that you can change your
mentality. That doesn’t you mean, the next day you
will be sitting on a pile of cash. No, but slowly, you will start looking at things differently,
you will start thinking differently and instead of complaining, you will start taking advantage
of all the opportunities that you are coming across and over time, you will improve your
financial situation. a wise man once said: the best way to help
the poor is not to become one of them. this video is based on a book Secrets of the
Millionaire Mind by Harv Eker. It’s an amazing book, I would recommend anyone, as usual,
I will leave an amazon link in the description as well as a link to Audible where you can
get the audiobook for free. Thanks for watching

    Alux.com triggered!!! LOL
    Great video btw

  60. Albert Gongora says:

    I think this video takes a lot of good points on how people truly don't understand what it truly means to be poor and what it truly means to be middle class or Rich because I'll admit this I'm somebody who's middle-class I own a house I have a car like anyone else and I have money put away to invest into I will say that but I'm going to say this I'm somebody who had to work hard for it all my life I had to be an adult I'm somebody that grew up with not really an easy life I will say that but the thing that I've learned in life throughout all my years is if you really want something you got to work hard for it and if you don't work hard for it and you only want to stay at a certain point you don't get anywhere I mean I will still give props to somebody that at least has an apartment and a car instead of living with their parents I mean don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with that but it's like at the same time if you have parents that you can tolerate great but if you have parents that make you feel like I wish I could have my girlfriend live with me but it's kind of hard because some kind of my parents can be embarrassing now if you have the type of relationship with a girl or a guy that can tolerate the parents that's great to don't get me wrong I'm not trying to offend anyone. Just live with their parents I understand that there are certain circumstances on why people can get an apartment or a car and sometimes it takes time just like any other situation like nobody immediately leaves their parents house and gets a house or an apartment and I know what that's like cuz you know when I graduated from high school and started working as much as I can and once I was able to save up enough money to get my first apartment I did things went wrong with that first apartment things went right with my second apartment and things got better with my third apartment cuz after I got a much more better job it went way want to bet it and the more I kept saving money in my being and investing it right I was able to get a house with the right type of income and I really some things to me and my girlfriend working hard or a relationship and little issues we had here in there and stuck by each other side to know that things are going to get better no matter what I think that's what sustains us to get better in life is somebody there and I understand we may not all have that some of us may have to reach this goal by ourselves but the thing is I feel like why some people are poor is because they keep themselves where they're at and they think this is my type of lifestyle I'm just going to live it that way and as much as I hate to say it a liar so like that isn't always healthy like the idea of how people say money isn't that important you don't understand in this day's economy money is all that is important now I understand now it's something to obsess over but people should truly understand what it means to value money in a sentence cuz it's easy you have a hundred thousand saved up from the time you were a baby from the time you became an adult and it's grown even more maybe only by a thousand something and you decide okay I have gone to the hospital today I got to pay off this hospital bill fine understandable but as time goes on you start to realize the moment that money is gone that was it if you start to realize then I wish I could have done something with it so what I'm saying is don't just take things for granted work hard for them and if you feel there they're not worth it then you don't see the potential of it yet

    1. Delusional people have unrealistic expectations.
