No matter how hard it is, it is a valid fact that there are people who live at or below the poverty line. The thing that is most amazing and shocking pertaining to such people is that there is a vast majority within such people who do not wish to change their life and consequently stay within the same limits and problems their whole life.
The reason why people aren’t able to break free and live a wealthy life emotionally and materialistically is the fact that people have a broke mindset. This mindset of theirs does not allow them to think about the ways in which they can break through and pave their way to success. The lines below discuss the biggest factor that causes a broke mindset and the countermeasures to reach prosperity.
It cannot be said any plainer than this that the biggest reason why people aren’t able to make good use of their life and live in abundance is the poor choices they make. We all are humans and it is in our nature to commit mistakes, however, if we keep on repeating those mistakes, then we won’t reach anywhere and as a result, we will have a mindset that won’t allow us to think of other possibilities. For instance, people who live hand to mouth will fight on a Black Friday sale over a few bucks cheaper Xbox, however, such people won’t spend a few dollars to attend a seminar or read a book that can lead to their personal development. Thus, by far and above all it is the poor choices made by people that cause a poor mindset and does not allow them to live and enjoy a life of prosperity.
Make Right Choices
Obviously the countermeasure to poor choices is making the right choices. Thus, if you are able to make the right choices, then chances are that you will be able to break the broke mindset and make your way to prosperity. There are certain choices that are the right ones and that differentiate prosperous people from broke people. The 3 major right choices that you should make in order to do away with the broke mindset are discussed below:
Focus on Personal Development- The first thing that will help you become successful and prosperous is your own self. Thus, the more skilled and more talented you are the more the chances of your success and prosperity. Therefore, if you wish to be prosperous in any way you want to, then the best thing you can do in this regard is to invest in personal development, whether it is by buying a book about personal growth or attending a seminar where you learn something new or meet knowledgeable people.
Abundance over Scarcity- There are two prime approaches pertaining to the resources available in life. Some people think that the resources are abundant, therefore, they try their best to utilize what they have and aim for a greater share in that abundance. On the other hand, there is the other school of thought that thinks that the resources in the world are scarce, thus they have to make the best out of every little thing they have and stay within their limit else they would lose whatever they have as well. Out of the two approaches, the abundance approach is what prosperous people have while the meek ones who merely survive life are the ones who live by the scarcity approach. Thus, the second choice you have to make is having the right approach to life.
Don’t Argue- The biggest factor that you will find common in all those people who live check to check is that they always argue about their poor condition and find ways to justify their circumstances. They always have some excuse or have someone to blame for their poor condition. This is the wrong approach and it encourages a broke mindset. On the other hand, if poor people would keep their minds open and always be in search of opportunities instead of lamenting about their condition, then chances are that they would get an opportunity that would change their life. Thus, instead of arguing make the chance of being on the lookout for an opportunity, and eventually you will be able to reach the destination of prosperity by defeating broke mindset.
