Many poor people dream of getting rich, they are making incredible efforts, they take additional jobs, they disappear all day at work, they play the lottery. But in the end, all efforts are in vain, the expected results do not occur, and people, disappointed, convince themselves that the rich need only be born. In fact, each person can achieve financial independence. The secret of the success of wealthy people lies in the psychology of thinking, which is radically different from the thinking of the poor man in the street.
Thinking is the highest level of human knowledge, as well as the process of cognition of the real, surrounding world, the basis of which is education. Human cognitive activity is a function of the brain. The behavior and activities of any person (poor or financial independent) are associated with thinking, and the term “mind” is understood to mean the process of thinking, as well as its features.
Theories about the origin and presence of thinking in an individual are divided into two groups.
Representatives of the first group are convinced that intellectual abilities are unchanged and innate. Supporters of the second group believe that mental abilities can develop in the process of life. It is established that the cognitive activity of any person is dependent on external environmental influences and on the internal development of the individual.
Having dealt specifically with the definition of thinking, one can proceed to the thinking strategy of rich and poor people.
If you ask, then each person would like to improve their financial situation, but very often this is only a simple desire, for example, people often make personal wishes related to financial well-being on the New Year. But they do not do anything specifically, and so the desire to achieve material benefits also ends, and before it begins.
It is not easy to develop the thinking of a rich person, since from childhood simple poor philistine’s parents set the stereotype of their poverty. At this point, you will have to work on each individual person and believe in yourself, your capabilities and your financial success.
Many poor people consider money to be evil, while the rich, on the contrary, attribute poverty to evil. Simple, poor people since childhood "put" information into their heads that financially independent individuals were initially very lucky in life or they came to an unjust way. Therefore, many are simply discouraged by this enrichment option, fearing the condemnation of society.
Millionaires relate to money more easily, understanding that the availability of money does not guarantee happiness, but they definitely simplify life, making it more comfortable.
Poor people attribute egoism to vice, but rich egoism is attributed to virtue. Financially independent individuals try to make themselves happier without pretending that they are ready to save the planet. They reason like this, I will first help myself, my child to become "on my feet", having received an education, and afterwards I will help orphans. This selfish approach is often annoying for people. They don’t understand that initially they need to take care of themselves, and then help others.
Poor people stubbornly believe in lotteries, and the rich rely only on personal strength. While ordinary people pray that their lucky number is winning, financially independent individuals solve problematic issues, earning money from it.
A simple person usually waits for inspiration to descend on him or when he receives a "magic pendel" from his boss and afterwards he begins to work fruitfully. So, in anticipation of pushes, the whole life is often useless.
Ordinary people want to get an education, and the rich are looking for special and unusual knowledge. Many of the financially independent individuals do not have higher education, and they have achieved their condition as a result of the acquired special knowledge and related services and products.
Ordinary people are hostages of linear thinking and mistakenly believe that having received a master's degree and then a doctoral degree, they will certainly take the path to a decent existence.
But for rich personalities, the process itself is not important, for them the result is significant. For them, education itself is an empty sound, only certain knowledge is important, which helps to achieve goals.
Poor people often recall memories, but the rich live in the future. Rich people became financially independent because they lived with their ideas, projected these ideas into the future.
The thinking of the poor is often fixed on the fact that his best years are over. This contributes to the emergence of his depressive mood and the absence of any desire to try to change anything in life.
Poor people value money through the prism of emotions, and rich people think coldly and logically about money. They know the value of money, but they attribute it to an important tool that gives just new opportunities.
The average person (educated, intelligent, successful) can easily become a pathetic person who is insanely afraid of losing the existing level of comfort, because he attributes money to the means of preserving his existing standard of living.
Mostly poor people make money because they don’t like it, but the rich do what they love or do well.
The psychology of the poor person’s thinking of relatively rich people is erroneous, for example, for ordinary people it seems that independent financial personalities work all the time. And in fact, they became such, doing what they personally like, often this was helped by their passion, which began to bring good money in the future.
A simple person has been taught since childhood that work is necessary for making money, and they can be obtained by doing only intellectual or physical labor. It’s not easy to change the psychology of a poor man’s mindset.
The poor people, fearing disappointments, set a low target level for themselves, but rich personalities set unattainable goals for themselves.
Psychologists believe that it is necessary to voice and write realistic goals, otherwise there will be frustration in their ability to achieve what they want and a person will become depressed. And the paradox is precisely that offhand, an unrealistic goal, for example, how to become rich, can become realistic.
Poor people think that in order to acquire a state they have to do something, the rich know that they need to become a professional in their work.
Ordinary people, in order to get rich, concentrate on concrete actions, while the rich in practice, analyzing their own failures and success, tend to become those who are “lucky through life”, while realizing that they are lucky to those who are lucky.
The rich do not disdain to use not their money. It is widely believed among poor people that it is initially required to earn money. And people who want to get rich, do not hesitate to fund their ventures at the expense of others. They do not bother those whose money they invest in the implementation of projects (personal or funds of investors and bankers). For them, the key question is whether it is worth investing at all, regardless of whether it is buying someone else's business, an investment, an attempt to create your own business from scratch.
Simple people think that logic and numbers move the market, but the rich clearly realize that greed and emotions, in particular fear, rule everyone. Knowledge of the human essence is advisable to lay in their predictions and calculations - this is what states are made of.
Ordinary people often live beyond their means, but the rich spend less than they could. Rich people make spending significantly less than they can afford, without consciously limiting themselves, because they earn so much that they can allow themselves not to think at all about money.
Poor people teach their children to survive, but the rich teach children to be financially independent. If children realize what opportunities give money, then in the future there are more chances that they will want to become rich.
From infancy, rich people explain to their heirs that there are those who have everything, and there are those who do not. Financially independent people teach offspring to soberly assess the surrounding reality.
The thinking of rich people is different from the thinking of the poor in that they boldly acknowledge the fact that money solves most problems. Poor people consider money to be evil, and all their life with this judgment they have to somehow live.
The well-to-do people perceive money as a cure for financial stress, and once they have earned a lot of money, they allow themselves not to think about them at all.
Poor people will spend their free time on entertainment, rather than learning something new, and the rich will spend their free time on something educational.
Rich people have a bad attitude to formal education, they are perfectly aware of the power of acquiring new knowledge. If ordinary people read entertainment magazines, watch serials, then in the house of a rich person there will definitely be books on how to become successful.
Poor people attribute the rich to the proud and snobs, and they just want to be surrounded by people of the same mentality.
Poor people often have a negative attitude towards wealth and often stay away from rich people. Financially independent individuals in their turn do not wish to communicate with those who hate them or envy their state.
Poor people do not like financially successful and consider them to be ignorant, thus justifying their chosen life "stable" way. Poor people are thinking about how to save money, and the rich are thinking about how to make more money.
Thinking rich is not focused on how to preserve existing wealth, it is aimed at how to multiply.
Poor people are afraid to risk money, but the rich feel when they have to take the risk. Big money occasionally gets hard work. Any entrepreneur at least once lost the invested finances, but successful personalities are sure that they will still earn in any case. This conviction distinguishes the thinking of a rich person from the thinking of a poor person.
Ordinary people value their tranquility and comfort, while the rich quickly and early enough adapt to feel normal in a situation of uncertainty or stress.
To take the financial risk, the result of which will be wealth, you need character and remarkable endurance. At the same time, on the other side of the scale, there is comfort and tranquility, which the poor man often does not want to disturb. For an ordinary person, psychological, physical, and emotional comfort are priority life goals. Successful people quickly realize that being rich is not easy and a calm life “does not shine” for them.
Poor individuals believe that it is necessary to choose: between family and state. The rich are convinced that it is real to have everything.
It is a myth that the rich refuse family values for the sake of personal wealth. Most wealthy people know that having a full-fledged focus is a prerequisite for financial success.
