Thought Process of Wealthy People vs Poor People

 

It’s not rocket science, but it’s a well known fact that wealthy people inherently think differently than poor people.  How wealthy people got to this point of thinking differently is beyond me, I’ll leave that for the psychologists to figure out.

I recently read “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth.” The author, “T. Harv Eker, has a fundamental belief that wealthy people think very differently than poor people.  This might seem obvious at the surface of the matter, but it goes much deeper than that.  Eker believes that each one of us develop a unique financial blueprint over time.  This blueprint is the result of mass marketing, parental influence, education and all sorts of other factors.

Here are 17 ways Eker believe wealthy people think differently than poor people:

  1. Wealthy people believe, I create my life.❠Poor people believe, Life happens to me.â
  2. Wealthy people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose.
  3. Wealthy people are committed to being rich. Poor people want to be rich.
  4. Wealthy people think big. Poor people think small.
  5. Wealthy people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles.
  6. Wealthy people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people.
  7. Wealthy people associate with positive, successful people. Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people.
  8. Wealthy people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.
  9. Wealthy people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems.
  10. Wealthy people are excellent receivers. Poor people are poor receivers.
  11. Wealthy people choose to get paid based on results. Poor people choose to get paid based on time.
  12. Wealthy people think bothâ. Poor people think either/orâ.
  13. Wealthy people focus on their net worth. Poor people focus on their working income.
  14. Wealthy people manage their money well. Poor people mismanage their money well.
  15. Wealthy people have their money work hard for them. Poor people work hard for their money.
  16. Wealthy people act in spite of fear. Poor people let fear stop them.
  17. Wealthy people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know.

So, what do you think about this list?  Any disagreement here?  Please comment below with your thoughts.
