HOW TO STAY POOR FOREVER



  1. Start tomorrow 

  2. Read lots of books, and then do nothing (read just 1 book and actually do something)

  3. Take advice from poor people on how to get rich 

  4. Pick a spouse who will make you feel guilty for working (don’t put your power in to someone else)

  5. Fail once, never attempt again. (failure is just a lesson)

  6. Think that the world is fair (the world isn’t fair, get over it. Blaming your circumstances doesn’t help)

  7. Blame your circumstances (thank your circumstances for creating you. Your mess is your message. How sad would it be to wish for a life of ease? Strong character is caused by tough situations). 

  8. Expect the government or other people to save you. 

  9. Value the opinions of others, over your own. (you are successful the moment you tell yourself you are)

  10. Avoid discomfort. (At the beginning, you will suck. This is normal. Who cares?)

  11. Tolerate mediocrity from yourself or others. (If you tolerate mediocrity - all you will ever get is mediocrity. Hold a standard that you yourself exceed).

  12. Make promises and break promises. (This destroys your reputation with other people and yourself. You are the only one holding yourself accountable. Your own respect is the hardest one to earn because you know the whole truth…. You could have gone to the gym…. You could have acted better…. You could have ….

  13. Wait for perfect conditions and perfectly aligned for you. (If you need perfect conditions to be successful, the moment these change, you will no longer be successful - so, you may as well start when you are not in the perfect conditions)

  14. Prioritize looking rich over being rich (To become rich, you need to spend less over a longer period of time…Be willing to look poor!!)

  15. Avoid working on what matters most (The nature of speed is not about the activity - it doesn’t matter how much you do, you just need to do the important things. Typically, the things that really need to get done, are the things that you don’t want to do)

  16. Saying you’re going to do something, but not doing it 

  17. Do what everyone else is doing. (Most people are not in the 1%, so, you have to act differently to get in the 1%, otherwise - you’ll just be in the 99%. Get used to people not agreeing or liking what you do)

  18. Do your best, not what it takes. (Sometimes, your best sucks. So, you need to improve. You HAVE TO level up)

  19. Talk more, do less. (Post about your goals, post affirmations, but actually - do little)

  20. Start something new today, start something new tomorrow. Always leave half built bridges. (As soon as you jump in to something, you go oh crap… work! And then you need to quit)

  21. Believe what other people think about you more than what you think about yourself 

  22. Make a mistake, then wait, repeat it and do it again and again. (STOP! Learn your lessons! If you keep on doing the same stuff, you will always get the same results)

  23. Be replaceable. (If you can get a degree to do the job, anyone can do it. Create a new job that NO ONE, other than you, can do)

  24. Find something that works, and then stop doing it! 

  25. Hire dumb people (A great way to make your life miserable… You’ll feel good, but you’ll be poor)

  26. Assume you are always right (How many unsuccessful people do you know that just ALWAYS think that they are right? There is no way you can learn from other people, if you always think you are right. You can either be right all the time, or RICH)

  27. Spend more than you make. Always adjust your spending to your income, eg get a pay rise and then spend more money 


How to become rich:


  1. START TODAY

  2. READ BOOKS AND DO THE STUFF IN THE BOOKS 

  3. TAKE ADVICE FROM RICH PEOPLE ON HOW TO BE RICH 

  4. PICK A SPOUSE WHO MAKES YOU FEEL AWESOME ABOUT WORKING 

  5. FAIL ONCE, TRY AGAIN 

  6. THINK THE WORLD IS UNFAIR AND ACT ACCORDINGLY 

  7. NEVER BLAME YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES, THANK YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES FOR MAKING YOU WHO YOU ARE 

  8. INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING, DO SOMETHING 

  9. EXPECT NO ONE TO SAVE YOPU EXCEPT YOURSELF 

  10. VALUE YOUR OPINION OVER OTHER THOSE OF OTHER PEOPLE 

  11. SEEK OUT DISCOMFORT 

  12. TOLERATE NOTHING BUT EXCELLENCE 

  13. MAKE PROMISES, KEEP PROMISES 

  14. WAIT FOR THE WORST CONDITIONS, WAIT FOR IMPERFECT CONDITIONS AND ACT ANYWAYS ON WHAT YOU WANT 

  15. AVOID WORKING ON THE STUFF THAT DOESN’T MATTER, WORK ON THE THINGS THAT MATTER MOST, IGNORE THE REST

  16. DO WHAT NO ONE ELSE IS DOING 

  17. DO YOUR BEST AND MISTAKES TO BE SUCCESSFUL 

  18. TALK LESS, DO MORE 

  19. START SOMETHING NEW TODAY AND KEEP AT IT UNTIL YOU ARE GOOD. DO IT SO LONG THAT IT WOULD BE UNREASONABLE FOR YOU TO BE BAD. 

  20. DON’T BELIEVE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK ABOUT YOU MORE THAN WHAT YOU THINK YOURSELF. 

  21. BE IRREPLACEABLE

  22. FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS AND DON’T STOP DOING IT
