Poverty is not a condition, situation or circumstance, it is basically a mentality. More also, it is a way of thinking that rejects and fights natural principles, rules and command for wealth creation. The poor are not poor because there are no opportunities or wealth does not abound around them.
Poverty mentality makes people to resist the instructions tied to real wealth. Being poor is not about your location. There are rich people in poor nation and there are poor people in wealthy nations.
Wealthy nations are called wealthy because of the thinking and results of the majority about wealth creation. Conversely, Poor nations are called poor because of the thought patterns of the majority, resisting the rules and thinking that applies to wealth creation.
Being rich or poor is not about the environment, it is all about the cumulative way of thinking of the majority found in an environment. Some belief the government should make them wealthy. Others believe their parents should bequeath wealth to them while others belief their rich partners will make them rich eventually. Furthermore, so many believe God will make them rich. All these thought patterns promotes and encourage the spirit of poverty.
Being rich is not about your bank balance, it essentially about the mentality and the capacity to keep creating wealth in any circumstance. Being rich is about capacity, knowledge and efforts applied to things that yield values. If your efforts, knowledge and insights are not enough, your money will never be enough.
Success in life is essentially about capacity contest. Many are poor because their capacities to create wealth are low. Many can do things but their level of capacity and competence is too low to attract the kind of money they desire. Hence, they remain poor and are denied access to opportunities for great reward.
It is not about what you do, it is about your capacity. That is why there are rich footballers and poor footballers, rich doctors and poor doctors, rich lawyers and poor lawyers, rich traders and poor traders.
If you are not excellent at what you do, you will not earn the rewards of the excellent. From today, refuse to blame your financial challenges on your environment, the government, employer, parents, spouse or friends.
Take responsibility, master your act and skills until you become one of the best and money will naturally flow to your direction. Poverty is not a condition; it is essentially your way of thinking that has resisted the principles of wealth creation.
