10 Steps to Become Poor Until You Die


People who are poor are self-made intentional or unintentional, and you will keep on asking these questions,
  • Why are some people poor?
  • If everyone wants to be financially successful, then why isn't everyone wealthy?
The answer isn't a simple one. Of course, there are circumstantial reasons, like living in an area where there's too much competition for jobs, having no mentors, and not having access to a good education . Of course, institutional racism and sexism exist, and as they say, it does take money to make money.

But sometimes, being poor is a state of mind. Sometimes, being poor seeps into your brain and takes over. I have created this list to help show some of the destructive behaviours, mistakes, and ideologies that people fall into that may keep them from achieving success.

Step #10: Do not Manage your State of Mind

South Africa is one good example with most of people who are poor because they are unable to control their state of mind. Firstly what is "State" ,  I mean your physiological and emotional state. You can be the most talented person in the world, but if you are in a dis-empowered emotional state you can't achieve crap. Most Africans are very creative they do all the work for their boss but they emotion keeps they in the same jobs for ever because they think is where they belong.

This will influence your decisions and undermine your ability to reach your aspirations and goals. If you find you are constantly feeling powerless, and you don't fight that feeling, then you are only setting yourself up for failure. Mind is like an car engine if you feed it poor food will not give good feedback.

 If you can be able achieving an empowering state of mind will give you the mental edge and attitude that you need to be successful. When something goes wrong, most people create a bullshit story to justify why they can't have what they want. It stops them from being honest with themselves and seeing things as they really are.

If you want to continue have poor state of mine don't do the following list of empowering mindsets for business: certainty, confidence, clarity, courage, conviction, ambition, and passion.

Step #9  Set your Goals Too Low or Average 

The reason most people are not successful is not because they set their goals too high and therefore miss them, it's because they set their goals too low and hit them. If your goals are low and you keep hitting them, then you need to raise your standards and ambitions. You need to have a continuing dedication to going further than those around you. Don't set your goal for average because average sucks.For example, if you your goal is get a Metric or STD 10 obvious you will achieve that but once you achieve it what next .

On the other hand, don't set your goals so high that they become unrealistic, because people abandon unrealistic goals. Instead, set your goals just above your comfort zone so that they inspire you to continue working toward them. The right goal will help you secure a better future for not only you, but also your family. The proper goal will bring you wealth. Money is simply a way of achieving freedom.
For example, if you goals is to be a millionaire, at the stage you are currently in,  this goal might look unrealistic, that will keep you working on it for a very long time until you closely achieve it or not. but at least you will have may be 1 million that keeps you away from being poor.

 Step #8  Become too religious 

 

Most of people believe God can make you happy, but once they join the church they get The study uncovered a link between belief in God and other societal characteristics, such as a strong social hierarchy. Scientists suggest that religious beliefs help people cope in inhospitable habitats. When life is tough or when it's uncertain, people believe in big gods,’ said Russell Gray, a professor at the University of Auckland and a founding director of the Max Planck Institute for History and the Sciences in Jena, Germany.

‘Prosocial behaviour [actions that help others] maybe helps people do well in harsh or unpredictable environments.’

 Step #7 Choose Bad Mentors

 

You must be careful who you choose as your mentor. People without money are very quick to offer their advice, and the world is full of people who claim to be life coaches, business coaches, or success coaches. The scary thing is that most of them haven’t achieved anything. If you find a life coach over the Internet how do you know they’ve actually achieved something?

Poor people always try to come up with something spectacular and new to make their fortune. This is the biggest trap you face as you work toward your goals. Instead of something new, what you need is a proven system, one that you know works and will help you gain successes.

Warren Buffet once said: “When I buy a business I want to make sure that the system is so good that even an idiot can run it because sooner or later one will.” I believe this statement, and that’s why I recommend the Straight Line System. It’s so simple that it’s being used to help hundreds of struggling companies and thousands of people to become wealthy.

Step #6 Slave Away For A Paycheck


 

There are only two jobs where you can make real money if you work for someone else:

1) If you work in a job that gives you heavy commissions.
2) If you work in the investment banking industry and can leverage off of a huge company’s assets.

Other than these two exceptions if you really want to get ahead in life you have to own your own business. I am not saying that you need to quit your job immediately. That is not what I’m writing this for. Instead, I’m writing this to give you the mindsets you must have to start your own successful business without quitting your job, without having to put up a lot of money, and how to raise (not borrow) money cheaply.

At some point if you want to be wealthy you have to get into your own business. Otherwise you are a pawn in someone else’s game of chess.

Step #5 Play the blame game

 

One of the most destructive human pastimes is playing the blame game. It has been responsible for mass casualties of war, regrettable acts of road rage, and on a broad interpersonal level (social, familial and work-related), a considerable amount of human frustration and unhappiness. The blame game consists of blaming another person for an event or state of affairs thought to be undesirable, and persisting in it instead of proactively making changes that ameliorate the situation. You blame anyone and everyone for why you don't have what you want. You blame the government, your family, your boss, the economy, or the people on Wall Street. If you do this, you are powerless to achieve success.

Step #4 Try To Reinvent The Wheel

 

Poor people always try to come up with something spectacular and new to make their fortune. This is the biggest trap you face as you work toward your goals. Instead of something new, what you need is a proven system, one that you know works and will help you gain successes.

Warren Buffet once said: “When I buy a business I want to make sure that the system is so good that even an idiot can run it because sooner or later one will.” I believe this statement, and that’s why I recommend the Straight Line System. It’s so simple that it’s being used to help hundreds of struggling companies and thousands of people to become wealthy.

What is the system that you have in place? Are you trying to reinvent the wheel or do you have one that is proven?

Step #3  Lousy at Business

 If you don't have any business experience, it's nothing to be ashamed of. No one is born with business skills. Someone has to teach or show you the ropes. This is why you must be careful when choosing your mentor. You want to make sure that you're getting the best information available. 

 Step #2 Save Too Little or Don't Save at All 

 If you’re like most folks, your savings habits could use some improvement. The idea that you can save too much has popular appeal because most people would prefer to enjoy their incomes now, rather than to save it for retirement. At the end of the day, saving for retirement is a lot like having an insurance policy. In an ideal world, you will never need it, but if the day comes when you do, you'll be glad you have it available. 

Step #1 Quit at School

 "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" by Nelson Mandela. Your parents nagged you about the importance of getting an education . Well, guess what? They were right. But you do the opposite quit. The difference in lifetime earnings between a typical high school graduate and a typical college grad with a bachelor’s degree is staggering. Over a 40-year career, a worker with a bachelor’s will earn R1 million more than a worker with just a high school diploma

Simply going back to school doesn’t guarantee a bigger paycheck. As you mull over what to study consider what majors are more likely to lead to a lucrative career. (Hint: Think about studying finance, pharmacy, nursing or just about anything computer-related.)
