When it comes to riches or doing well financially, there are people who will never be rich not because it is not in their destiny to be rich but because of certain habits, attitude and character that they possess. So, in this article we will be looking at the various habits and attitudes that people could possess that makes them unable to get rich. The idea of this article is to identify these habits and attitudes so that you can learn from it. So, let’s get right into it.
- People who are unwilling to leave their comfort zone: When it comes to riches, one truth you must know is that it doesn’t happen in a place of comfort. It is always a result of a prolonged period of sacrifice and hard work. Now, people who are not willing to leave their comfort zone can never be rich because of that attitude of remaining in their comfort zone. As long as they are not willing to leave their comfort zone, then it is not possible to access riches except they change
- People who have no vision: The next kind of people who will never be rich are those who have no vision. I mean these are people with no destination in life. They have nowhere they are going in their finances. They take anything that comes to them because they have no choice and interestingly, if nothing comes to them, they remain that way. These kinds of people will never be rich because to be rich, you must have a vision. As a matter of fact, riches are a product of vision. You need vision to achieve it in your life because of the process and procedures that it takes to achieve it in your life. So if you truly want to be rich, you must have a vision for your life. Now, when I am talking about a vision, I am talking about a financial vision, where you will have long and short-term goals and time limits that have been listed out on how to achieve their goals.
- People who are afraid to fail: The next kind of people who will never be rich are those who are afraid to fail. These kinds of people will never get into the corridors of riches, because they will always shy away from opportunities that will get them into that corridor of riches. They will always have this hesitation because they don’t want to fail. They will not be bold enough to take the necessary steps that are needed of them to accomplish great things in their finances. When they have ideas that could change their lives forever, they will not want to execute their ideas because somewhere in them, they feel it will fail and this will always make them remain small in their finances. However, you have to understand that if you truly want to be rich in your life or be financially okay, you must be willing to fail, because failure is part of the process. As a matter of fact, failure is what produces in you the success that you need. Therefore, be willing to fail at any time knowing well that that is not the end of your life but the beginning of a new opportunity. You must always see the opportunities that are hidden in every failure.
- People who are unwilling to learn, unlearn and relearn: If there is one thing that does not support riches is the inability to learn, unlearn and relearn. Sadly, that is where many people have found themselves. There are many out there who are not willing to learn new things, unlearn some things that they have erroneously learnt over the years and relearn. They choose to stay with old ideas and knowledge and yet they want to be rich. It doesn’t happen that way because riches are built on the premise of learning. As long as a man is not willing to take the time to learn, he can never be rich no matter how he tries, because there is so much to learn. So take a cue from this and make a conscious decision to learn because this is what differentiates you.
- People who are unwilling to take responsibility for their finances: One of the things you will notice among many people is that they always push the responsibility of their finances into the hands of others. Either they are blaming their lack of finances on the government or the companies that have refused to hire them or they are blaming their friends or uncle who have refused to help them and they do this with all authority and a sense of entitlement. Unknown to them that they are making a big mistake. Now, these kinds of people can never be rich because the time that they are supposed to use in taking responsibility for their finances and looking for a permanent solution to their financial problems, they use in blaming others. So, you see why these people will never be rich? They have unknowingly thrown away all the possibilities of getting rich by seeing others as their key to getting rich. It is true that when it comes to the journey of riches, you need people. But the truth is that, until you stand up for yourself, you may never get the kind of help that will truly make you rich.
- People who say “business is not my thing”: Over the years, I have come across lots and lots of people who find business a difficult thing to venture into. They tell you plainly that they are not interested in business because it is too difficult. They always believe that it is best to work in a firm because it is easy and you don’t need to crack your brains to make it work. These kinds of people will never be rich because they put aside that one thing that can make them very rich which is business. It is true that business has its own down sides and risks but the truth is that those who are not willing to take these risks and rough it have no business with being rich. You have to understand that achieving true riches is not an overnight thing. You must put in the work and be diligent enough to see things happen. So, you see why people like this will never be rich and you must avoid such attitude with all vehemence because it will bring you a kind of limitation that you may never be able to overcome. There is nothing wrong with working for a firm but be flexible in your decisions and actions. If you have the opportunity to do business, then go ahead and do so. As a matter of fact, it should be part of your agenda in life because that is one thing that opens you up true riches. Of course, it will not be easy but face it because that is where the success lies.
- People who chase after money: A common phenomenon you see today is the barrage of people who are just busy chasing after money. They are so much under pressure to the point that they don’t really care how they get this money. They just want to get the money by all means, so they keep chasing after it and sacrificing some precious things like family, just to go after money but at the end, they don’t get this money as much as they want. And the reason is because you don’t get rich by going after money, you only get rich by attracting money to you. So, people who fall into this category can never be rich because riches only come when you attract it not when you run after it. If you want to be rich, you must set yourself apart and focus on how to attract riches.
It is important that you take note of the various kinds of people and identify the area that concerns you so that you can make some adjustments in your life.
