Rich Man And Poor Man: 10 Habits That Set Them Apart For A Good Reason

Which one do agree the most?


The amount of wealth that 26 people in this world own can equal to that of almost half of the world’s population. It’s pretty darn clear that some people seem to have been born for an amazing cause, excelling in what they have done, despite the similar tribulation everyone faces, more or less.

But it’s not the problem or even the opportunities thrown at them that defined whether one will succeed or not – it’s the attitude.

Research shows that rich people almost always give out for others in need. Of course, there are those who do this for the image, but in reality, giving out is an attitude that allows you to even be more appreciative of what you have. Giving out eases the mind, allowing one to be happier and more positive thinking.

2. Make a habit to wait and think.

Humans are very biased creatures and thus, we might have cut out those who may have come with great ideas for you. Make a habit to let the other person speak and listen attentively, not to think of a better reason to say no, but to actually contemplate every possibility to become better, as a person, as a team, and as an employee.



3. Stop gossiping.

Some of us find this hard to stop – it’s intrinsic that human beings just like to talk about what caught their eyes. Instead of talking about others behind them, be respectful and speak to the other party alone. Discuss it as civilized people would.

4. Make clear goals.

Wishlist is nice, but simply wishing will not grant you anything. Work for it and to do that, make a clear step as to how you want to reach your end goal. Don’t worry! You don’t have to start big. Start from small things, like waking up early and not skipping your breakfast.

6. Don’t rely on luck.

Luck is definitely part of skill and life – just look at those people who become millionaires overnight. But those people who have never worked for it ended up destroyed, depressed and even dead. Work for what you earn and therefore, learn to appreciate and manage your expenses and business.

Even if you don’t end up like Jack Ma or Mark Zuckerberg, you won’t end up as a depressed man who is not financially stable.



6. Read, read and read.

Needless to say, knowledge can really turn the table in a pinchy situation. The more knowledgeable you are, the better you will fare in a world that is constantly expanding and evolving. That said, make sure to choose what kind of books, news, and articles you are reading.

Are they useful? Do they contain crosschecked facts? Are they up-to-date? Will they help you fare better not just in business, but also as an individual?

7. Stop showing-off.

Those who focus on making bucks are usually the ones who don’t have time to show off what they’ve done. It’s not wrong to buy yourself that beautiful sports car you’ve always dreamt off ever since you were 6. The point is that you don’t flex everything you have and learn to be low profile.

Don’t be stingy, though.



8. Smile~

Yeah, surprisingly, this simple habit can make all the difference when you meet people. It’s not about faking your expression or emotion. Learn to eliminate any prejudice you have of someone, adjust quickly even under uncomfortable situations and these will help you flash a smile even under pressure. Why?

It allows people to think positively of you, helps bridge a good relationship on first meetings and basically, fake it till you make it.

9. Don’t pile on debt. Pile on the money.

Well, duh, is what people say. But have you ever check how much you’ve been spending on credit cards? They’re not always bad – credit cards eliminate the need to bring a lot of cash while travelling. But always be sure to keep track of yourself.

You can’t be rich if you keep spending every penny you get.



10. Make friends!

Nobody can be successful on their own. How can you when you need employees for your business, people to take care of your storage warehouse, and most importantly people to buy your service or goods?

You’re not alone. And if you don’t have friends or at least ones that are supportive and helpful, find one. Among 7.7 billion people alive on earth, there must be someone out there for you.
