  • - 97 percent, three percent, 97 percent

  • of the population are dead or dead broke by the age of 65.

  • Only three percent succeed financially.

  • The 97 percent are broke because of these seven reasons.

  • Reason number one why you'll never get rich

  • is because you don't think money is that important.

  • Have you heard of the saying people say,

  • "Oh, money isn't everything."

  • You know when people say that,

  • usually what happens is they got none.

  • They have no money, and money isn't everything,

  • but money is very, very important in life.

  • Money makes the world move.

  • Money takes care of your family.

  • Money gives you security, money gives you comfort.

  • Money itself is just a tool, nothing more.

  • Imagine you saying to your girlfriend, your boyfriend,

  • your spouse, your husband, your wife and say,

  • "Hey, you know what, you're not that important to me."

  • Guess how long they will stick around, not long.

  • It's the same thing, when you say to money,

  • if you imagine money is actually a person

  • and you say to money, "You're not that important to me."

  • Guess what, they won't stay around,

  • and that's why you got no money.

  • Reason number two why you'll never get rich

  • is because school never taught you about money and wealth.

  • You see, when you were going through school,

  • remember the classes?

  • Chemistry 101, Biology 101, Mathematics 101.

  • Where is Wealth 101, Money 101, Investing 101?

  • Those courses don't exist because the school system

  • is designed to teach you how to play it safe.

  • To turn you into a nice, compliant worker.

  • You see, that's why your professor is not rich.

  • The instructor in school is not rich.

  • Your principal that taught you is not rich.

  • So how could they teach you how to be rich

  • if they're not rich themselves?

  • Reason number three why you'll never get rich

  • is because your parents never taught you about money

  • and how money works.

  • You see, unless you come from a wealthy family,

  • or you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth,

  • growing up you did not pick up the right beliefs

  • about money, about wealth, about successful people.

  • In spite, maybe your parents, they love you,

  • they want the best for you.

  • However, they are not qualified

  • to give you business and financial advice.

  • And guess what, because you love your parents

  • and you listen to them when it comes to money,

  • and that's why you will never be rich.

  • Reason number four why you'll never get rich

  • is because you were never taught

  • how to make money beyond a job.

  • Thinking back when you were a teenager,

  • and you wanted to make some money,

  • you wanted some allowance, right?

  • You wanna buy that toy, you wanna buy that car,

  • you wanna go on the vacation,

  • you wanna hang out with your friends.

  • You go to your parents and you ask mommy, daddy,

  • I want to make some money, and they say to you, what?

  • Go get a job, how do you make money?

  • You get a job, but is that the only way to make money?

  • You see, you have to understand how money works.

  • Money earned is nothing more

  • than a byproduct of value creation.

  • As long as you can bring value to the marketplace,

  • you can render a service or product in exchange of money.

  • So instead of trading hours for dollars,

  • you can trade your ideas and skills for millions.

  • Reason number five why you'll never get rich

  • is because the mainstream media and advertisers,

  • they want you to consume.

  • Why do they want you to consume?

  • It's so that they can better control you.

  • Starting at a young age, you were taught

  • to spend money that you don't have.

  • To buy things you don't need.

  • To impress people you don't even like in your life.

  • You want to buy the toys for your kids?

  • Put that on the credit card.

  • You want to take that vacation?

  • Put it on that credit card.

  • Hey, you want to buy that new car that you cannot afford?

  • That's okay, get a second credit card.

  • Borrow from your mortgage.

  • It's perfectly normal to have some debt.

  • Do you have a lot of debt, and that's the problem

  • that we have in the world, especially in North America.

  • That's why families, they are heavily in debt.

  • And when you are in debt, you are controlled

  • by the media, and you're controlled

  • by the financial institutions

  • and you're controlled by the banks, remember that.

  • Reason number six why you'll never get rich

  • is because you have a negative association

  • towards rich people and wealthy people.

  • Why, because you've been brainwashed by the media,

  • by your parents, by your friends that rich people

  • are greedy, they are mean, they are arrogant, they are evil.

  • So what, in order not to be one of those people,

  • you make sure you stay broke

  • 'cause you don't want to be one of those people.

  • You don't want people to think of you as greedy.

  • You don't want people to think of you as evil.

  • So what do you do, you stay broke.

  • My question to you is, is it true?

  • And if you believe that it is true, you will never get rich.

  • Reason number seven why you'll never get rich

  • is because you never take full responsibility

  • for your own financial future.

  • You see, the 97 percent,

  • they always like to bitch and complain

  • and being a victim, pointing fingers to others.

  • What they don't know is every time they point

  • a finger at someone else,

  • there are three fingers that are pointing to yourself.

  • And unless, until you take full responsibility

  • and say, "You know what, I'm gonna do something."

  • I want you to think about how many hours

  • you spend watching TV or on Netflix

  • versus how many hours you study finance,

  • business, money, how money works.

  • I want you to compare the time that you invest.

  • Think about it, most people,

  • they spend their entire lives working for money

  • yet they never spend even a few hours their whole life

  • learning how money works.

  • And those are the seven reasons why most people

  • will never get rich.

  • if you want to be the top three percent in a society,

  • in a population, click the link below and find out how.
