9 Things Poor People DO That The Rich DON’T!

9 Things Poor People DO That The Rich DON’T!

9 Things Poor People Do That the Rich Don’t #9. “Sleep-In”- The saying goes “the early
bird catches the worm” and this couldn’t be more true as a 5 year study by Thomas Corley
has shown that 50% of self-made millionaires wake up at least 3 hours before they go to
work. Many of these millionaires use the extra hours
in order to workout, plan their days so they are more efficient, and to brainstorm new
ideas. People on the poorer end of the spectrum have
a tendency to sleep until the last minute and go into their days less prepared. Also, forcing yourself to wake up when you
don’t want to can have the added benefit of giving you more energy, as having a strict
and consistent regimen allows your body to function at a higher capacity. Consistently waking up early allows you to
take charge of your day, just think of an alarm clock as the bell in a boxing match. However, a lot of poor people don’t have
the option of waking up early as they are forced to work long hours, night shifts, and
shifts that constantly fluctuate making it harder for them to lock into a healthy circadian
rhythm. #8. “Eat Poorly”- The phrase “You are what
you eat” could not fit more appropriately when speaking of this big difference between
the rich and poor. Getting past the notion that poor people sometimes
get stuck eating bad food because for the most part healthier food is more expensive
or that poor people find it harder to find the time to cook from home, there is a huge
link between success and a healthy diet. Eating fast food and unhealthy snacks can
drain your body and mind. If you have ever eaten McDonald’s breakfast,
you will know that instead of feeling full of energy and ready to attack the day it usually
just makes you want to go back to sleep. Though it can be tough getting into the habit
of planning meals, shopping for the right kind of groceries and weaning off sugar, salt
and fatty foods the end results are always worth it. Most rich people, though their are exceptions,
have figured out early that they won’t be able to sustain success without the proper
food fueling their days. This is one improvement that doesn’t require
having a personal chef either, as just attempting to consistently eat better foods or eating
on a healthy schedule can have instant results. #7. “Skip Exercise”- A recent study shows
that 76% of rich people exercise half an hour or more everyday. This fact goes hand in hand with the other
topics of rich people being all-around healthier. One of the main reasons that more successful
people exercise more is because they know that in order to be fully focused and ready
for the day the body and mind have to cooperate. Exercising can also help you to deal with
stress and solve problems with the full working capacity of your body. If you are feeling sleepy or sluggish exercise
can wake you up and help you to continue on at full-strength. Access to Gym memberships, personal equipment
and the ability to take part in leisure activities that may be too expensive for the poor does
play into the rich being able to stay in better shape, but anyone can workout without those
things and doing it can work wonders. Adding daily exercise of even just half an
hour can increase your productivity and help you to stick to your schedule and reach your
goals. #6. “Watch T.V.”-According to Thomas Corley’s
book Rich Habits, 67% of wealthy people watch less than an hour of television a day as opposed
to 23% of poor people. This could be do to the fact that successful
people know that television is a distraction from achieving goals and replace the time
with more productive habits. It could also be a result of the fact that
rich people tend to have their hands in more than one business, so they don’t have time
to watch television. The study also shows that poor people tend
to watch less quality television than poor people as there is a significant amount of
poor people that watch reality shows. Dedicated sports fandom and video games are
another type of escapism that the rich don’t necessarily participate in on the levels that
the poor do. As the rich usually have easy going lifestyles
where they can meet success in real life one can see why they don’t feel the need to
hang on to the hopes of their team winning or beating a level in a videogame to feel
a sense of accomplishment. But no one can blame those who haven’t reached
financial success for enjoying sports, television and video games because sometimes it is impossible
to climb the ladder with so many obstacles (some that are put in place by the rich) in
everyday life. Poor people may need to take refuge in these
things to distract them from their everyday struggles and avoid depression. #5. “Dwell on Problems”- One of the biggest
differences between mindsets of financially successful people and those that aren’t
is that successful people don’t dwell on their problems. When a person who is strong of mind and a
go-getter comes upon an obstacle instead of trying to avoid it or sulking in their misfortune–they
attack it head on. Some of the most successful people have faced
some intensely adverse situations in their lives and the way they dealt with them through
innovation and positivity left them as better equipped to handle seemingly less important
situations in business. Sometimes a problem that comes into a person’s
life can even be the moment that sparks the successful person’s rise to glory. There are many stories of rich people who
started off broke or who had terrible events in their lives that forced them to become
great or crumble under the pressure. Less successful people have a tendency towards
being self-defeating and drown themselves in negativity this a big reason why alcoholism
and addiction is more common among the poorer classes. Procrastination is a common affliction of
those who have the capacity for financial success. Putting something off can lead to a snowball
effect of problems that becomes insurmountable whereas successful people try to stay ahead
of the game and even plan for problems that may occur in the future. #4. “Don’t Read”- Financially successful
people are found trying to constantly improve themselves and one of the biggest ways a person
can do this is by reading. Surveys of the rich vs. poor have shown a
dramatic difference in their reading habits. Whereas the poor spend more time in aforementioned
escapist hobbies such as television the rich devour books by the truckload. Take for instance Warren Buffett who will
spend up to 80% of his day reading and Bill Gates who makes a point to read at least fifty
books a year. Though these two extreme examples might have
a little more time now that they have already achieved such resounding success and no longer
have to do hard labor, they probably developed these habits before success and there is still
a lesson to be learned from them. Reading can help to focus your mind, upgrade
communication skills and help you to learn from the mistakes of others whether fictional
or non. Two of the most popular types of books that
are read by rich people are biographies and self-help books. Reading biographies is way to live vicariously
through another and help deal with one’s one tribulations by learning how they did,
or where they failed. Self-help books are just another testament
to how successful people are constantly looking inward and trying to improve themselves instead
of being satisfied with their current status. #3. “Forget to Invest”-Now investing is hard
if you don’t have any money to begin with, but some of the richest people in the world
weren’t always able to put aside large chunks of dough like they can now. Many successful people began investing little
by little, whether it was just investing in themselves by putting any extra money into
their ideas—- or not spending unless the purchases they made were working to their
advantage. One of the biggest reasons that the poor remain
poor is by overspending in the moment and hoping for a future bail-out that never comes. Credit cards can be a dangerous trap and may
even exist only to further the gap between the rich and poor. The instant gratification of being able to
pay for something now with ‘future money’ can be a hard thing to overcome–especially
in the materialistic world we live in. This aspect is what credit card companies
thrive off of–and the interest rates of a credit card that is incorrectly managed–can
lead to devastating future hardships and the inability to get loans when a person really
needs it. Rich people tend to only use a credit card
when the card is working for them and they know they already have the money to pay it
off. In fact, studies show that most rich people
carry an average of one credit card whereas poor people tend to carry multiple. Poor people also involve themselves with less
responsible investments such as gambling or the lottery–hoping for the improbable prospect
of instant riches via luck– instead of slowly cultivating long-term wealth. #2. “Live in Chronic Pain”- Kaiser Health
News reported in 2010 that the percentage of people who experience daily pain is doubled
in those living below the poverty line. This may be due to holding more physically
demanding jobs and harsher living conditions. Living in chronic pain can be a catch-22 in
which those who want to get better jobs and be more successful are unable to do so because
of their pain and the inability to function at full strength, which in turn relegates
them to being stuck in the same physical jobs that cause the pain, health insurance that
doesn’t cover the help they need, or a wage that isn’t enough to sustain a healthy life. In opposition to the aesthetic mirage that
the rich take better care of themselves, is our paradoxical culture where the higher earning
jobs usually involve less physical labor, so it’s no wonder that the rich are generally
more pain-free. That being said, another place where successful
people invest where unsuccessful people don’t is in personal healthcare. To make sure that unforeseen physical problems
and the medical expenses that come with them don’t put them in the red, rich people put
money aside for worst-case scenarios. Statistically, rich people also visit their
physician more frequently for check-ups. Where a poor person might avoid going to the
doctor to avoid bills until they have serious medical issues, the rich have the foresight
and luxury of grabbing the bull by the horns and making sure they are in peak condition
in order to prevent ailments. In addition, the lower class has an especially
hard time paying for specialists that the rich take for granted, such as chiropractors
and psychologists, which only perpetuates the cyclic trap of pain and depression in
the poor. Untreated medical conditions can result in
people turning to drugs or alcohol–and addiction is one of the quickest ways to the poor house. #1. “Resent Teamwork”- Most of the richest
people in the world didn’t get there on their own, they networked and teamed up with
other very successful people in order to achieve something great. As easy as teamwork sounds, many people find
it difficult to put aside their own ideals in favor of what could be a better idea or
the direction others want to move in. A common link between self-made millionaires
is their ability to mesh the ideas of others into innovation and keeping a positive work
environment where everyone’s voice can be heard. Studies have shown that a high percentage
of poor people, if given a choice to work alone or with a team, will choose to work
alone. This stubborn independence is a major factor
in some poor people’s ability to be leaders or to move up in a workplace. People who would rather work independently
are less efficient if working in management roles because they either try to do everything
themselves or they view any work or idea by their employees to be inadequate. The financially unsuccessful people also have
a propensity towards blaming others for their problems or things that were their fault. On the flipside, some of the most successful
people take responsibility for their actions and admit when they’ve made a mistake, showing
time and time again that the secret to self growth is being able to look at oneself objectively.

    Poor people aren't born rich, either. Trump doesn't read, watches ridiculous amounts of TV, has had so much debt he's had companies go bankrupt multiple times, doesn't exercise, eats crap. He's learned how to con and cheat his way through life.

  5. Christopher Winstanley says:

    The thing with diet. A lot of healthier food don't have long self life. So it can be expensive, especially for a family, or one parent families. The healthy eating guide (nutrition) means more vegetable, fresh fruit and oily fish and a lot of foods such as snack, crisps, chocolate, fizzy drinks and binge food are taken out. It's going to be a real problem in years to come!!! I'm content with my income and don't envy. It would be wise to take care of diet, up against these fast food chains that contain huge amount of saturated fat, salt and sugar and they don't label ingredient or nutrition value. Best way is just introduce health foods without giving up on other foods and see how you feel both physically and mentally. I'm sure it will alter some preception. 😊

  8. Darbur 68 says:

    There may be a link between healthy eating and success, but you need to dig into which came first. Did the healthy eating assist in the success of obtaining wealth or was it the ability of a wealthy person to afford the healthier food. We all know that the cheapest food is the unhealthiest. So…

    The person in Australia who compiles our Rich List was asked what characteristic the self-made wealthy often had in common: the breathtaking number of hours they work. While we are having fun, they are usually working. I remember the stunning wife of one of our wealthy self-made said she hardly ever saw him, he was always working.
