How Rich People Think

There’s no myth, no mystery, no new age thinking.
Rich people think differently to poor people!
It’s been known for ages and yet, we still have “rich” and “poor” people.
And maybe just because of these two types of thinking.
I remember once being told when I’m growing up that we will always have poor people in the world!
At the age I thought – WHY?
My question at that age was

“Why would anybody want to be poor?”

At that tender age I got something that I didn’t realize I got.
We all know children tend to simplify things.
As we get older we start to complicate the world and our thinking.
As I child I thought – if you want to be poor then you’ll be poor.
So I couldn’t understand how you could WANT to be poor.
Obviously everyone will WANT to be rich!
Well I recently got a chance to review again the ways that Rich People think.
And even as I’m reading through the list I realized that children think like the rich!
Do you know any child regardless of their background to think small?
Do you know any child regardless of their social status to be afraid to act?
Rich people just have a way of BEING, that is totally different to poor people.
I remember sharing in a very subtle way some of the ways poor people think in a recent conversation —
I was amazed at how they agreed with some of the statements.
It did make me question my choice of company immediately
Rather than boring you with my opinion of how the thinking of the rich I will share with you  what I recently learned form T Harv Eker’s book “The Millionaire Mind”

      I absolutely agree with your thoughts!
      I read a book a few years ago about a journalist who wanted to see if the American Dream was really dead. So he took a bus to a city he’d never been to, and with $25 in his pocket, and not using his degree or job skills at all, wanted to see if he could live on his own and have a car and have something like $500 in the bank by 1 year?
      He started out in a homeless shelter, and within 9 or 10 months, he had surpassed his goals.
      Great list of 17 points. Thanks!
