What Is Worse Than Being Poor?

Changing My Condition

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can’t, I give myself reasons why I can. Unknown

You can have a life that is exceptional if you can look beyond where you are currently. It is important to know that if you are in pursuit of having a better life for yourself you can once you realize that the mind is a powerful tool. You may have seen and heard of many who came from humble beginnings. Therefore if you are in a situation that you would like to change as long as you are not poor in mind, you can have that which you want. What I think is worse than being poor is to have a negative mindset, a negative attitude towards life.

You want to give yourself reasons for the things you have said you wanted.

The people who have changed their outcome in life have a positive mindset, a positive attitude towards life. Therefore, if you want to change your situation despite your humble beginning you can if you can change your outlook on life.

A positive attitude brings strength, energy, motivation and initiative. Unknown

Our mind is powerful – it can be our greatest ally and or our worst enemy. It is us who have to decide on if we are going to use it for our pathway to where we want to go or have it holding us back from what is possible.

“I can do it” is the attitude you want to have.

For you to have the breakthrough you want in life you have to have a breakthrough attitude. Your breakthrough will be based on how you think. Your mindset has a lot to do with your outcome. You may have heard it before, but I will tell you again – your success is a matter of your mindset.

If it’s hard, it’s time to do it hard.

  1. Richard, your highly motivational and empowering insights on how to think outside the box, how to change our own mindset as a great door swinging wide open to possibilities is inspiring to say the least.

    Our mind is our single most valuable, most influential and powerful personal tool that we have in our arsenal when it comes to how we live out our own life. I have met many individuals who look upon goals as lofty unattainables, largely due to their observation of the failures of others rather than looking inward to their own strengths and capabilities.

    Many believe that being ‘poor’ is as bad as it gets in life yet what is poor really?…is it a lack of money, a lack of material things, a lack of authority and power? It’s all relative to how we define it through our own perceptions. Truly being poor presents great hardships yet it can also be the catalyst for change, for an overwhelming desire to achieve greater…there are so many remarkable stories that have stemmed from abject poverty.

    If we can reshape our thoughts and beliefs and in doing so embrace change…we are rich in the presence of mind to overcome hardship and lacking and we have a wealth of resource within our own mind that can and will open up doors to greater possibilities.

    “Where there is a will there is a way”…an old English proverb that has stood the test of time…and I believe that message has been shared right here on occasion too!

    • Don, it’s funny, my mom always say that quote”where there is a will there is a way” I didn’t believe her then because I couldn’t see a way – it came full circle where she was absolutely right.

      You said it here, “Our mind is our single most valuable, most influential and powerful personal tool that we have in our arsenal when it comes to how we live out our own life.” And we must take hold of the most valuable tool we have.

      Have a bless one Don.
