What if I told you the people who are complaining about the wealthy are the same people keeping your from becoming wealthy yourself?
I think there is misinformation floating around that casts the wealthy as if they were all evil like the old evil stepmother depiction that was oh so popular in the Disney movie classics (I wonder what they had against stepmothers? Perhaps childhood issues, or an easy target?).
Now just in the little that I wrote so far I’m sure some readers put their hands over their ears, closed their eyes and started chanting “I’m not listening, la la la”. If you have made it this far read each of the points below with an open mind.
- 8 out of 10 people who are rich today came from a middle class or lower background. This means that 80% of those that are rich are just like you and me! Look around and in the mirror, practically everybody you see, including yourself, can or may already be rich. Don’t believe the crazy people they have on “The Real Desperate Housewives” as representing the rich. As much as they say it’s real, it not really representative of the rich. Those TV shows are about as representative of the rich as a pink dolphin is representing the average dolphins.
- There are both good and bad people who are rich. Bad is a relative term, perhaps good and (aggressive, mean or selfish) people who are rich is a better way of describing them.
- There isn’t some magic that happens to these people who come from the middle class that makes them more prone to be successful other than drive, belief that they can do it, and the willingness to try.
- Most rich people (at least the ones that I know) give money away to causes that improves everybody’s lives, whether they realize it or not. Parks, recreations centers, the Arts (yes, liberals that protest the rich benefit greatly from people being rich… surprise), medicine, hospitals, and quite literally the list goes on and on.
- Big media like to portray the rich as bad guys (which is ironic since they themselves are super rich), but if you read blog sites and their interviews with the rich, you’ll see that they aren’t really the way big media like to present them. Big media just want you to watch their shows because it makes them money. I wonder if they think we are all slow? Just remember when you listen to one of those shows trashing the rich, that the people pulling the strings are richer than you or I can imagine. A bit hypocritical huh…
The wealthy are the ones that bought apple products, enabling the android devices to take off and become popular at a much lower price. If it weren’t for the wealthy buying both calculators and computers of yesteryear, computer still might be giant behemoths of past, or so expensive that they never become mass-produced and exist only in the government world. I don’t know about you, but my computers and electronic devices has made a huge impact on my life, and might be a way for me to someday advance to the wealth level of the rich, even on a middle class income.
Think you are still a victim? The try the following:
- Grow your own food
- Stop buying products that the rich provide
- Start bartering more
- Make your own clothes
- Start a side business on the cheap
- Think and exist outside of the box
- Become more socially active and make new friends
- Live life well…
The thing is you are a victim only because you let people tell you that you are. You are only limited by your desire to be wealthy and your determination to get there.
I’ve been asleep for years, not really believing or even trying to become wealthy. Now I’m awake and trying things. I think life will slip by too quickly if you let it.
If you don’t play the game, how do you expect to win?
