Signs You will Never Become Rich One Day

  “Being born poor is not your fault, but dying poor is your fault.”
    ― Bill Gates

Entrepreneur and businessman Bill Gates once famously said that if you are born poor that’s not your mistake, but if you die poor that is your mistake. May be some people not agree to the point. But if we look at the world, we may find a large percentage of people who are still struggling to make their ends meet. So, what are the reasons keeping them poor? What mistakes they are making? What habits and beliefs they having, which keeps them poor.

In this article, we will discuss the signs you will never be rich in your life. So, make sure to pay close attention to every single one of these signs, because you may discover the blockage that’s truly keeping you away from the life you deserve.

You focus more on saving

  “A simple fact that is hard to learn is that the time to save money is when you have some.”
   ― Joe Moore

Some people want to be rich while some people don’t want to be poor. This is a major difference between rich and poor thinking. One thinking wants to be rich and the other is afraid of poverty. Rich people always focus to increase their sources of income; they invest and then earn and become even richer. While, poor people focus only on saving. They have more focus on saving than to increase their income.

There is no doubt that saving is crucial for building wealth, but if you want to be rich then you have to focus more on earning than saving.

You blame others

  “Your life is what you make it. So, don’t blame others when you screw up.”

If anything goes wrong in our life, we have two choices. First, accept and identify our own areas of improvement and take corrective measures. Secondly, blame someone else. First one is difficult to adopt, while second one is easy. Blaming is an easy way of making others responsible for all the difficult things that happen to us. And this is the major difference between rich and poor. Rich people always take the responsibility of their lives, their mistakes, their good and bad things. And this way leads to success. While poor people always blame others, their system, and their society. If your focus is on others to change, you are waiting for this world to change for you. Then be confident, you will remain poor.

I will repeat the words of Bill Gates, “ Being born poor is not your fault, but dying poor is your fault.

Rich people are lucky

   “Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation, while bad luck is when bad preparation meets reality.”
    ― Eliyahu Goldratt

Poor people usually think that rich people are lucky, rich people have more resources and opportunities. There is no doubt that luck is an important factor, but it not the deciding one. Hard work and dedication is a key towards a happy, rich and successful life.

This world is full examples of millionaires who born in a poor or average family, but with their hard work and dedication, they become rich. Everyone has given opportunities, wise people grabs them and are called lucky, while lazy people ignore them and become unlucky and poor. Always remember, good luck happens to those who worked hard for it.

You are a hard worker, not a smart worker

  “The early bird gets the first worm, but the wisest bird gets the fastest one.”
   ― Matshona Dhliwayo

Hard work is a good thing, but only hard work not works. You should be smart enough to get rich. If you are only hard worker, then you are never going to be rich.

Hard work is one when we do certain things without effective planning and no results could have been obtained. With hard work, you can earn money but to be rich you should be wise enough to work smart. Smart work gives a direction to your hard work, it directs the way to success.

Hard work is work and think.

While smart work is think and work.

If you are a hard worker, continue it and learn to work smart. With continuous learning, hard worker can become smart worker.

Don’t plan long term

  “If you do not know where you are going, you will end up someplace else.”
   ― Yogi Berra

If you think that planning is boring. If it is more exciting for you to do things rather to plan them, then you probably will be poor. Secret of success is in planning. Poor people usually don’t have goals and plans in their life while rich people have. Rich people make clear goals and then make clear plans to achieve them. They have short term plans, long term plans and life plans.

Planning make things happen. So, if you want to be rich in life, then plan your life. Make clear plans and work hard to achieve them. This is a way towards a successful life.
