Wealth is a choice, for which we all have to choose. Bill Gates once said, "It's not your fault if you were born poor, but it's your fault if you die poorly." There is no reason to live in poverty. Wealth is primarily a mental state and begins with a proper way of thinking. The results we have are due to the way we think and the decisions we take. For this we have to observe the differences of thought and the actions between the "rich" and the "poor" people, or, more simply, those who have and those who do not.
Poor people are skeptical, they think everyone wants their money and everybody is there to steal them, instead wealthy people trust, they tend to trust those they meet (no reason), giving the possibility of being themselves. Poor people are always looking for problems instead of solutions. They come to blame the environment, conditions, work, weather, government, etc., and make an extremely long list of apologies for which they can not be successful. Look for mistakes, who to blame, focus on negative and non-constructive things. Rich people follow success, I understand that everything that happens happens for a reason. Instead of letting things happen, they prefer to take direct action and make things happen as they please.
