7 Main Differences Between Rich And Poor People

Rich or poor, which category do you fit in?

Most people want to be rich, but most of them are poor, why?

There must be some differences between rich people and poor people. If you study carefully, you will find out why rich and successful people are able to produce amazing results in their life, and why some people are living in poverty.

To be rich and successful, you don’t need to be lucky, extremely hard working or you need to have a college diploma or a university degree.

What you need, is the right mindset and the right mindset will form the right habit. As a result, the right habit will lead you toward the financial abundance kind of lifestyle that you always desire.

So here are the 7 main differences between rich and poor people…

1. Rich people believe that they create their lives while poor people believe that life happens to them. Can you see why rich and successful people are able to create amazing results in their life right now?

It is simply because they are in control of their lives. They believe that they are the ones who is responsible for their lives, they are the ones who is creating their future, not the economy or the knowledge or luck.

On the other hand, poor people will always give excuses and blame on the circumstances. When they failed in their business, they will blame the economy, their boss, their family or anything that did not go according to their plan.

Whenever you believe that life happens to you, you will lose the power to change and the power to control your future. You must believe that you’re the one who is creating your future, not other people or events.

2. Rich people play the money game to win but poor people play the money game just not to lose money. This is a big mindset difference.

Have you ever seen people invest in the stock market? Some people are so afraid that they will lose their money and they form a mindset that blocks their creativity. They formed the mindset of ‘investing not to lose the money’.

However, rich and successful people know exactly how they need to think in order to win the game of money. They will think and act from the view of playing the game to win. Unlike poor people, they will never invest just not to lose the money.

3. Rich people think and focus on opportunities while poor people focus on obstacles. When you face with problems, what are you focus on?

Are you focus on the problems, thinking how bad the situation is going to be? Or are you focusing on the solution and thinking about how you can solve or even turn the situation into opportunity?

Think about this carefully. No matter who you are, you will definitely face with all kinds of choices in your life. And when you need to decide to move on, try to notice on you thinking, what do you focus on, the solution, or the problem?

4. Rich people dare to dream big, poor people think small. When I tell my parents that I want to make a million dollar, they will tell me, “Why do you need so much money? You can live a very good lifestyle if you got a job that has a good pay. You don’t need to be a millionaire.”

I don’t know about you, but this statement happens to me all the time. And I definitely believe that poor people will tend to think small while rich people always think big.

To poor people, they will think that rich people are greedy because they always think big. Is it true that you are being greedy if you think big? I don’t know if I buy this, but to me, I’ll think of it as a waste if you’re not using the resources available (your thinking) to you at full.

Don’t you owe it to everyone around you to create a better life for them? Don’t you want your family to live good? So think big and create the abundance lifestyle for these people right now.

5. Rich people are committed to their dreams, poor people are just dreaming about their dreams. Yes, this is an obvious one.

If you’re not committed to be rich, you can never be rich. How many times have you heard people say that they want to be rich, but they never do anything about it?

This is the mentality of poor people. They will just think about how good it is going to be if they are rich, but they will never do anything about their dreams. They know that they cannot afford a luxury car if they have a low pay job. The thing is, they never do anything to change it.

On the contrary, rich and successful people are committed toward their dreams. They will do whatever it takes, in the boundary or moral and ethics of course, to achieve their dreams.

6. Rich people associate with rich and successful people. Poor people will associate with poor people. Do you have any rich friends? Or all of your friends are poor?

I’m not suggesting that you need to stop making friends with poor people, what I’m suggesting it, try to get to know more about rich people. The more you mix with them, the more you will think like them. And if you think like them, you will start to create amazing results just like them.

If most of your friends are poor and their working salary all are below, $2,000, you will be having the same range of salary most of the time. However, if you associate with rich people who are making $2,000 in just a day, you will start to see the possibility of what you can accomplish in your life.

And this will change your thinking of what you can achieve in your life. $2,000 will become a small amount for you once you changed your mindset about money.

7. Rich people good learners while poor people think that they have learned everything in the world. One of the fastest ways to be financially abundance is to learn directly from people who have already achieved this status.

And if you’re not willing to learn, you will never be able to be successful. If you want to get the best pay, you must be the best. And the only way you can be the best is to learn from the best and learn to be the best.

You now know what are the 7 main differences between rich and poor people. Do what rich people do and try to avoid the adopting the mindset and habits of the poor.

This will guarantee you a financial abundance lifestyle.

  1. I liked the photo. It really happens with me also .. every morning I use to think of How the rich people will be thinking at this time. How to grab a opportunity.
    Your blog has gave insight of Dream building.
    Thanks, Would like to read more on this

  2. Now tell these facts to the people in slums. How can they enrich their lives? The fact is the rich don’t give a shit about the poor. Period. Getting rich is not the epitome of life. You want to get rich because the media and the celebrities propels it.

  3. If a rich person inherited their money, they are not a valid rich person, just lucky mofos. However, if they were born poor but now are self made, then that is an accomplishment.

  4. The folks in the slums can leave I went in the military at 17 now at 60 I am wealthy and never had a high paying job just saved and invested. My son did the same he only finished 8th grad in 1990 went in military now is a manager over several degreed engineers and still only has an 8th grad education, Finished his ged in 3 weeks. most rich people made it on their own.

  5. I’m with most of it. I believe in hard work. I’m not about to gamble with the stock; I don’t know a thing about it anyway. What about Black Tuesday? If I had been able to, I would have finished college majoring in computer science. I would have fostered the money I made—-not that I”m not doing that now. I don’t think about making $1mil immediately. I would save up, and it would come to mind when I’m close it it because I take things one day at a time. I couldn’t accomplish this because of disabilities—–not because I’m lazy. I tried for 20 years——at restaurants—-but had to quit due to so many seizures caused by stress.I’m not like other handicapped people; I want to make money not depend on Uncle Sam.

  6. I like reading your comments about rich and poor, I wanted to start a business for many years now, but how can I start without money?


  7. I really enjoyed reading the above statements about how to become wealthy and it makes a lot of sence to me. The thing that I’m struggling with is, I just don’t know how you can come from nothing and become something. I know it can happen but just really don’t know how I can even talk to about becoming wealthy. I personally don’t want to be rich but I do want to live comfortable. I have been wrking my whole life and I’m trying to learn how to get ahead but every time I get a few steps ahead I’m always back to being, I wouldn’t say poor where I don’t have anything but I’m most definatey not rich so I’m just trying to learn how to get and keep the things I want in my life.

  8. What i don’t realize is actually how you’re no longer actually a lot more smartly-appreciated than you may be now. You’re so intelligent. You know therefore significantly in relation to this topic, made me in my opinion consider it from so many numerous angles. Its like women and men aren’t involved except it is one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. Always handle it up!

  9. Interesting but hypocritical! money goes to money. if you are rich in the first place you have the resources to go to University and have a better education, and you don’t have to take a lower paid job just to feed your family. Also it angers me that some people think money is the most important thing in life. How about being rich in love! Poor people have more time for their family and friends whereas rich just let money become the most important factor in life.

  10. I agree with this. It’s funny how some people would justify being poor, that it is not their fault that they are, if you were born poor then it is really not your fault, but if you die still poor, well, somehow, you chose it. Well, I am not yet that rich, I am making a good income (based on where I am from) but I was not like this before. I also came from poverty. Believe me, from where I am at now, poverty is so prevalent. The slums here are way way different than the slums in other countries – it’s worse. I was once very poor, experienced not eating for 4 days (there are no food stubs here, the government does not help poor people) but I did everything to get out of poverty. I believed that I can become rich, I believed that I was made for something more, and everything now is moving according to my belief.

  11. It is a very good for me. This can make me know what I have now. The rich habit or the poor habit which can make me to be a better one. Try to change the obstacle to be the opportunities. Thank for those who wrote this to share.

  12. For me the main purpose of wealth is to love others. If you are rich, then you will have more time with your family since you’ll have someone work for you. And your money is working for you too. I know I’m not that rich yet but someday I know I’ll be. I am an orphan left with nothing but debts. Started out as an oldsitter for a couple of years and saw people who are poorer than me. I want to help them but I can’t because my resources are also limited. I realized, I cannot give them what I do not have. So I need to have it first so I can give. I need to be rich first so I can help more people. Right now, I am into business (small businesess though, including stock market ) . I worked only 2-3 days a week, spent most of my time with my loved ones. We visit our friends who are sick and in prison and we feed the streetchildren every christmas.

  13. Hearing these differences, I think that It is important for those who want to be rich in their life. We born in the world should determine our life not just let it happen without fighting the obstacle to be rich.

  14. Jesus said: “Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

  15. Being rich really is within all of yourselves. I started off rich at 19 when my Dad died, then multiplied our riches by like 5 times in a few years. You really do create your life. You have to understand how to create value of something. I’m still chasing money at 29, I live in the newest neighbourhood, bought a brand new SUV at 25. We just paid for my aunt and uncle to go to the Cayman Islands. There’s nothing like money, to feel important. I have a very expensive, shiny suit too. I don’t even make alot from my hourly wage, either. I continue getting ahead while i’m off work too. I can’t waste time.

  16. this is the biggest bullshit article ive come across in awhile,
    rich people believe they created their lives because they don’t want to feel like everything was given to them through random events or luck.
    anyway every single point you made was moronic, i don’t even care to prove my point. anyone that falls into this bullshit is probably dumb enough to fall into that scam you probably have going on your next page.
    funny thing is you probably wont even post this, biatch.

  17. Rich and poor created by and from the society. Both paties are some time poor in mind when any one rich in mind. All the time ich.

  18. There are good points like positive thinking and thinking big, but other parts were judgmental, condescending, and insulting and overgeneralizing. I used to be fairly well off, but due to the bad economy, I’m barely getting by and paying a lot more in taxes ironically.

    #1 ,3,5 and 7 Plenty of poor people work on re-creating their lives by going to school, opening business, working 2 and 3 jobs and doing home businesses and going for higher paying jobs. You control the things you can but you’re not God so can’t control everything.

    #2, 4 I used to invest in the stock market when I had money and did pretty well. That’s how I bought my real property. Now that I’m on the other side of the fence I can see where investing is difficult. If it takes everything you make just to gas up the car, keep the car insured, pay rent and buy food, where’s the disposable income to invest? I’ve known people that spent their rent money trying to get of their financial difficulty and it paid off!LOL That was years ago though. In the place I stay, if you’re 3 days late they charge you another $100. If you are ten days late, they file eviction papers on you and the tack another $300 to the rent and the late charge.

    #6 is pure hogwash. If the 1%ers look at us a losers, why would they want to hang out with us? You cannot go the places they go and do the things they do. It would be a one sided relationship. Very few people are that altruistic (rich, poor, middle class) to help you out and share knowlege with you expecting nothing in return. In other words, you’re not in the same circles. I actually LOST some friends after I no longer had money

    I see why the rich get richer. I recently bought a suit, shoes to go on an internal job interview for a position I was qualified for. I have a master’s and several years of job experience. Right now I’m really underemployed. It was my boss’s old job and he recommended me to the owner as did the HR manager. The selection process came down to me and this other woman from the outside and the position was given to her. This woman already had a good job and a husband with a good job. I’m a struggling single parent who had been with the company since the beginng when we had no phones, computers or desks. I’ve worked many Saturdays when he couldn’t pay anyone to do it. All I know is if I were the owner, I would have gone with the person who was qualified, who already knows the ropes,who I know about their work ethic and who really needed the job. That $30 K raise would have loosened the financial noose that’s around my neck so I could have breathed.

    It’s ok though. I believe in God and I know I can have everything that He says I can have!

  19. Ya, half of these comments are just us lost in our own world and minds. Travel a bit with no boundries to whether you can afford it or not and see how the rest of the world lives or gets by. Yes, there are rich and poor every where, and I wish I could have an adbunadance of money to throw away on luxery dinning, planes, hotels, and personal gifts for family and friends and such to decorate my home. But the bottem line stops with us and the mind set between rich and poor is a true one. You have to risk everything to acheive more and not be afraid of losing what you have already and most people can’t do that in fear of being in the streets homeless.
    Although, I believe you can’t just do this with no education; one has to have some academic education and street experience and labor skills be hind them on top of the mind set then allow or accept the lostes in route to their goal journey with strength and learn from them etc…I don’t even know anymore if having money is so important. It’s more about doing what you want to do and having love; family,partner, friends etc no matter if we struggle or need it’s the togetherness that makes it’s all wonderful when we do acheive some wealth. If lose everyone along the way and acheive the wealth dream what will it matter if we don’t have true loves to share it with

  20. An entitlement-minded society such as our own breeds and festers hate and jealousy towards the most successful. I agree with this article, having been on both sides of the socioeconomic fence at some point or another.

  21. 8. Poor people get mad and start cursing you in CAPS when you try to explain what they’re doing wrong.

  22. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

  23. I think this is among the most significant info for me. And i’m glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The web site style is ideal, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers

  24. this article is pure bullshit. if everyone was rich we would have nobody making are big macs, cleaning are bathrooms, educating are kids in high school, working at the dmv, or cops and firefighters protecting us. we sit back and we claim so many things as the key to success and money when really its 1 luck 2 having a shitty attitude and stepping on people all the way to the top 3 narcissism. there are lots of people who get educated, make good decisions, and do there best everyday and they JUST DONT MAKE ENOUGH. and yet you liars want everyone to feel bad because they didnt fuck everyone over in life to be a millionaire. this country has made a huge distinction between respectable-rich and nonrespectable-poor. i find this sad seeing that poor people are what keeps this fucking pisspoor economy running. without all the minimum wage to 12 dollar an hour “blue collar” workers rich people wouldnt even have food because it take 13 an hr truck drivers to haul it. and yet what does a millionaire produce and yet he is seen as respectable and not a ‘loser’? i will admit that some people who become millionaires alot was luck and also hard work but come on!!! the majority just got lucky making a risky investment that happened to pay off. fuck it im out. you all can keep sucking off the millionaires you dream of becoming while 98% of the blue collar workforce does the real work and gets the jobs done that none of you can live without. have a nice life.

  25. This article is absolutely true message for everybody, who wil be adopeted these 7 message he wil be successful in his life

  26. If we think about the rich and poor all around the world especially in Asia and Africa, it will take us to political systems which is communism and capitalism.

    Communism: close the gap between rich and poor and brings equalization amongst people, so all people live in peace.

    Capitalism: make the rich richer and poor poorer, accordingly crime and corruption is the results.

  27. What an appallingly ignorant, judgmental and snide article. You’re all about you, and you make it clear that in your opinion, rich people get rich by being all about themselves. That assumption is not true, as evidenced by numerous wealthy entrepreneurs who give a lot back to society, including a leg-up to those whose circumstances forbid even the ‘biggest’ of thinkers to benefit from their own intelligence or hard work. Your assumptions about the poor are not just nasty and ignorant and only serve to bolster your insecurities. You have to make the poor ‘bad’ and responsible for any and all ills that befall them in order to justify both your greed and your success. In so doing, you prove the opposite of your professed beliefs. If you have to put down others in order to feel good about yourself, you demonstrate a complete disbelief that you have, indeed, made your own luck. Your wealth is dependent on a demonized unwealthy, rendering your contribution to your ‘success’ meaningless. Congratulations on that failure.

  28. You did not mention all the wealth that is given to people by “cronyism” or out-right stolen through corrupt practices.

    Since “good” people would never do anything dishonest, the bad people who lie, cheat and steal will always win the game over the majority good people no matter how hard they work or try.

    Good people would never think about murder to get what they want while the most Evil organised criminals running around in the highest places would kill anyone that gets in their way!
