The top 8 attitudes for people who plan to stay poor..

  1. “The wealthy are just lucky.” So they keep waiting to get lucky. And somehow never do. Sure the wealthy got some lucky breaks. But they also learned to recognize them and what to do when they popped up. Because lucky breaks, like the morning dew, evaporate fast.
  2. “I need this new BMW. And I can afford the payments.” By the time they pay it off and eat the depreciation it probably cost them 70% more than MSRP. Never pay interest on depreciating assets. Buy for 0% interest or pay cash. Period. Oh, and leasing is just financing.

The truth is, you never know what people are capable of so you need to be educated & protect yourself at all times – and by every means necessary. Don’t trust, hope or wait. You need to protect your money, idea’s, possessions, IP etc because someone could just take it – and probably will or waiting too if they get the opportunity.

It’s sad to say ..but sadly it seems that most people are out for themselves, greedy, untrustworthy and/or have alterior motives these days – especially the ones with no purpose, skills, or integrity.
