What is your definition of poor? Many people, especially in Kenya, usually attribute their status in life to the circumstances of their births and the inability of their parents to leave any wealth for them. They are quick to blame their parents, family background, witches and wizards and everything except themselves for their poverty.
1. You’re Trying to Get Rich Quick
Too many people are looking for the quick and easy way out of poverty and are trying to get rich quick, said Jon Dulin, founder of Money Smart Guides. Whether it be a hot stock, a job or business idea, too many of us chase the idea that we can come into extraordinary wealth overnight.
Sadly, it doesn’t work this way. You have to put in the hard work to become rich. We see the rich now, thinking they got lucky or made it without much work. But we don’t see behind the scenes at just how much work they put in to get where they are.
2. You Spend More Than You Make
Nick Loper, founder of Side Hustle Nation, said the root cause of being broke is nearly always the same: People “spend more than they make.”
“As far as I know, that’s the only cause of bankruptcy,” Loper said. “The good news is you can tackle this from both sides of the equation,” he said. “Spend less to live within your means and work to earn more so you have more financial breathing room.”
3. You love “Comfort Zones”
Don’t we all love comfort zones and stay in bed all day long and procrastinate about life? Well, all these things are keeping you away from being a success and get things done. Neale Donald Walsch stated “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” and it sure is true. If you love comfort zones you will be living in a dark box looking for sunshine. Get yourself out of the comfort zones and you will be leaping mountains.
