The benefits of being poor
We all noticed that being poor has gotten popular lately, some say because the failing economy has put poverty in our minds but I think it’s because being poor is cool.
We know that being rich is hard to find a moment to enjoy life among having to tell your employees what to do, your household help what to do, and your broker how to invest your money.
It’s true we spend several hours each day exercising, listening to audio books, reading nonfiction, making happy birthday calls, networking, and going out to lunch with other rich colleagues but what poor people can’t understand is that isn’t all that what we truly consider recreation.
We perform all these activities to improve ourselves, they are investments.
Some of the people I network with can be the most absolute bores but they are rich, powerful and classy as me so that’s why I keep related to them. They make us richer every day and that’s what count.
On the other side, poor people do not listen to audio books; they don’t talk business at lunch and don’t share investment advices with friends and even if that’s useless from a financial standpoint their activities are way funniest and careless.
Think about all the weight you could lose if you couldn’t afford all the delicious meals you enjoy every day.
It’s really hard to have the necessary self-discipline to avoid a meal but if you are poor you don’t need that discipline simply because you don’t have food.
Imagine if the financial circumstances make it impossible for you to eat; it would be like having your own personal diet coach, and having it for free!
Poor people don’t have business meetings, work conferences or job training all day long; they just have free time to spend inside their little houses.
Without obligations to their shareholders, partners and regional managers, they can just take off spontaneously and take naps on their small beds.
Poor people have the wrong idea that being rich is a piece of cake but we know it is absolutely exhausting.
We have so many possessions to manage and worry about, many businesses to keep going and inversions to preserve that we are always trying to figure out how to simplify our lives because it’s very time consuming having to manage a fortune.
Poor are extremely lucky, they don’t have nothing to simplify because their lives are naturally simple since they don’t possess anything and they have nothing to care about.
We are all day trying to prioritize and decide how to spend the little free time we have in our hands; poor people don’t have that struggle, they can spend the entire day doing nothing thanks to their lack of possessions.
Sometimes when I listen other rich people trying to build orphanage in Africa or get financial aid to poor countries I realize how mean they are, why would they like to take all this happy poor people out of poverty and take away the reason of their happiness.
It’s also true that poor people can easily became rich just by stop doing poor people activities like not going to work or not investing wisely but clearly they don’t want to.
They are poor because they want to, and that’s because they know that it’s so much fun.
That’s why they don’t travel, don’t learn languages and are always thinking about mundane things like being hungry or paying bills.
Poor people have everything we have, just smaller
Poor people have a lot less money than we do to spend on their houses so their houses are not as nice as ours.
Maybe they only have one house or they can only afford one or two bedrooms in that little house but all those details are not important.
If you have the right perspective, you can be as comfortable as you are without having 3 rooms to select where to sleep every night.
My point is, poor people always make a big deal about not being able to afford this or that when the truth is that they can have anything that we have, just smaller.
They may not be able to afford a nice car but why can’t they be happy using the bus? Not everything needs to be done the way we do it, trust me.
Being poor is something you have to be grateful for because being poor empowers and motivates. If you’ve got nothing then you’ve got nothing to lose.
The biggest deterrent of success is fear and you can avoid the fear of losing money by being poor.
Poverty also harnesses your talents because without money you have to use them to survive and that boosts ambition.
When you grow up having everything you don’t have a reason to effort because feeling material fulfillment lead us to believe that there is nothing else to achieve in life.
Poor people don’t get that feeling and there’s where ambition comes from.
As a conclusion we can say that the only difference between being poor or rich is the thoughts.
While poor people are always thinking about paying bills, what to eat and looking for a better job, rich people are think about investments, avoid anyone who isn’t rich or writing articles about poor people.
the world must know the truth!
