8 Habits That Separate the Rich From the Poor

How to live a rich life? Our habits can program us into poverty and prevent us from earning more. Here is a list of habits that separate the rich people from the poor ones.

1. Uncleanliness

There  is always dirt where poverty is. Greasy oilcloths on the tables, dust, old wallpaper, dirty floor, torn old slippers, dirty mirrors and bathrobes, piles of forgotten trash placed in the corners, ungroomed yard, etc. Updating and washing all of this almost does not cost money – everyone has a rag and water, BUT poor people prefer not to notice it. By the way, this is where the line between intelligent low income and the poor passes. The unpretentious, but well-groomed teachers’ apartments never create such an impression.

The “rich” habit with regards to this is very simple: see the dirt – remove it. Do not live with it, do not turn it into part of your life and do not pretend that it does not exist, but take a rag and wipe the table. Or hire someone to do this for you.

2. Bad habits

The habits of people who are poor in consciousness (and permanent poverty at its worst is precisely low awareness) is aimed at destroying oneself. That is, drinkingin excess, eating mindlessly, smoking, watching too much TV, etc.

The habits of people with “rich” thinking are aimed at creating themselves; reading, playing sports, communicating with smart people. In general, do everything so as not to waste your time in vain. Of course, almost everyone has bad habits, but their ratio between the poor and the rich differs significantly.

“Depending on what they are, our habits will either make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.” – Sean Covey

3. Empty leisure

Chronic poverty always pushes on rest, where the soul and body are degrading, reinforcing a vicious circle. There is no new knowledge and experience – there is no resource – there is no way to reach a new level. Theater tickets can now be found almost for nothing; to marvel at beautiful parks, you need to pay only for the fare, but most people prefer TV shows, bars, and taking it lying down.

A sign of wealth not only externally, but also internally, is interesting in developing leisure, from which it feels like living even more. In other words, it is thirst for knowledge of life, not down the road.

4. Poor speech

This is a tone (talking with a claim, talking in elevated tones), inability to convey a thought without strong language, junk words. In principle, it’s the inability to convey one’s thoughts.

Speech is why we can instantly make an impression of a person. After all, after a minute of conversation, the person’s level of education, his upbringing, and our desire to be near him becomes clear. Certainly, the circle of communication, books, and leisure influences speech most of all. And, of course, in permanent poverty, these three components leave much to be desired.

5. Living day-to-day without goals and plans

Well, the final touch will be a purposeless life in which there is a refrigerator, a roof, and no thoughts about the future. It seems to be the “poorest” habit of all possible.

Purposefulness, desires, and plans for life – this is the ticket by which we go to a new level of well-being and in return, we give up our laziness and sense of comfort. Surprisingly, the more material a person has to pay, the lower the likelihood that he will buy it. Excessive comfort is an ungrateful personal capital that not only stops us but also makes us go backwards. That is why low-income people spend their money on luxuries they can’t afford and richer people invest in impressions and future endeavors.

6. Blaming others for failures

Poor people always blame others for their failures. How many people do you know who are constantly being disturbed by someone or something? The rich, on the other hand, take responsibility for everything that happens, and in difficult situations, they study the cause of this situation to prevent it in the future. 99% of the success of your life is directly up to you.

“Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” – Warren Buffett

7. No savings for a rainy day

Poor people have no cash savings and live paycheck to paycheck. If you do not know how to save money in principle, you cannot become rich. In the event of a difficult situation, the poor will be left with nothing; the rich person will have reserves and assets that will give him time and allow him to calmly solve any difficult situation. The poor do not think about what awaits them next.

8. Wrong environment

Poor people surround themselves with poor people. There is a saying – if you want to become a loser, contact a loser. The average income of 5 people from your environment, with whom you most often communicate, is the mental amount of your average income. If you want to earn more, look for mentors and a high-income environment.

That is why the rich are not afraid to spend money and time on their training and education, as this is including the opportunity to meet more successful people than you, and, accordingly, this is a direct opportunity for you to grow. That is why wise parents send their children to study at the most expensive universities, since people with an appropriate income level study at expensive universities and expensive courses.

And since your environment determines you and your income, this is a direct path to growth. Poor people save on their education, while the rich learn from the best and regret investing neither their time nor money. Do not be afraid to get out of the grey crowd and go for something better.

In conclusion, even with the least amount of money, you can lead a life, full of intelligence and dignity. The choice is ours.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.
