Victim of Circumstances

We have all been broke, either financially, physically or spiritually at one time or another and we may be again at some time. But we are smart enough to know that it is a temporary condition and we will look for options. There are people who have money and then there are people who are rich. No one’s poverty has ever been cured with a dose of money. The only way to cure poverty, which is a state of mind, is through an emotional change of attitude. Being poor is a choice.

 

Hence; The cause of poverty is poor thinking, poor beliefs and poor attitudes; it comes from a poor mindset.

 

The poor also remains a victim of circumstances, and has his state of poverty into his psyche. Opportunities knock on his door several times, but he will find an excuse not to grasp it with both hands. To him, menial jobs are not considered little opportunities, but hindrances.

 

Often we, unconsciously, relate our worth to the world in terms of money or possessions. Our inner feelings on how we earn, save and even handle money are connected to our self-esteem. We judge ourselves at our worst and others at their best.

 

The cause of poverty is not a lack of money. It's true. A lack of money may be an effect of poverty, but it is not the cause of poverty.
