  • The poor will always be amongst us because it starts up here. It's in their words you

  • know and their words become flesh. When they say I can't afford it or I can't do that,

  • they go down. They become what they say. And I meet so many people “I can't afford

  • it, you think I'm made of money?” My PhD dad he says what do you think I am made of

  • money? I can't afford that. And my rich dad would say that's why he's poor. Poor

  • people say “I can't afford it I can't do that. I don't have time.” Because it's

  • an escape. “How can I afford it? How can I do that? You know what would it take? Or

  • why should I do that?” A question opens the mind a statement closes the mind. See

  • when you say you can't afford it, your mind shuts down and you become what you say. Two

  • thirds of all Fortune 500 CEOs have one thing in common. Military background. Two thirds

  • of those two thirds have something else. Martial arts. What do you learn in martial arts? Discipline.

  • Focus. Rich people are constantly improving their earning ability. You need to improve

  • your earning ability. You need to find ways how you can add value to the marketplace,

  • how to add more value to the marketplace. So every single year, your income is going

  • up every year. Poor people watch tv, and rich people read books. How many hours you spent

  • in front of the tv and when was the last time you read a book? How many books do you read

  • per year? Rich, poor, middle class, poverty starts with a fundamental attitude. My rich

  • dad started teaching me about money on one condition. And that condition was he would

  • never pay me. He saysthe moment I pay you, you think like an employee.” He says

  • that's the trap.” Entrepreneurs work for free. The moment you accept the pay check

  • the brain goes dead. You just got paid. He says as long as you're hungry you'll think.

  • Rich people we take responsibility for our own failures. You see for poor people it's

  • always somebody else's fault. It's the economy. It's the government. It's my

  • boss. It's my job. It's my city. It's my neighbour. It's my friends. It's always

  • somebody else. It's never their own fault. Rich people we take responsibility. If your

  • life stinks it's your fault. We take responsibility for own action. When you take responsibility

  • what happens is you gain power. The power to change. The power to do something different.

  • We are what we repeatedly do. Human beings, we are creatures of habit. Getting rich is

  • not an act, it is a habit. So is staying poor, is also not an act it doesn't just happen

  • to you. It is a habit.

The poor will always be amongst us because it starts up here. It's in their words you
