An ancient piece of common wisdom says the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. The wealth of the rich is the ignorance of the people; in fact, the rich profits from the ignorance of the poor. There is no man that is poor; every man is rich in something. The ‘rich’ are rich in ideas while the ‘poor’ are rich in ignorance.
There is a conspiracy to keep you poor by the elite in the Society. Your passion and not your salary is your surest route to wealth. The illusions of salaries and pensions have stagnated the pursuit of many for excellence and impactful adventures. Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
The pursuit of salary and pension has made you miss golden opportunities. Poverty is Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly (POOR). The rich baits you with the idea of salary and therefore perpetuate you in a vicious cycle. Pursue your passion, not your pension!
The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty”- Proverbs 10:15
Poverty is a reflection of how you use your time. One of the most critical evidence that you are in the wrong place or with the wrong people is that you will not have time for essential things. People that are in charge of their time will always be in charge of people that do not know how to use their time. This is one of the core secrets of entrepreneurs.
The only difference between a rich person and a poor person is how they use their time. When you say you are not happy with your life, you are actually saying that you are not happy with the way you have used your time. Time is the only wealth that is truly ours. The more you give it away to people that do not appreciate it, the poorer you become.
You attract money with ideas; infact, money flows naturally towards the path of an idea. Poverty is not the absence of money but the absence of ideas. The poor man is not the one who lacks money but the one who lacks idea. It is either you work hard to get an idea or you will work hard for people that have ideas. The rich makes us see money as something to be pursued while they attract money.
