Rich vs. Poor:  How Rich People Think Differently

I hate to put things in terms of the rich vs poor, but when it comes to amassing and keeping money, wealthy people do think inherently differently from poor people.

You certainly can't just think yourself wealthy. You have to take action. But if you're working hard to make and grow your money and you still aren't as wealthy as you'd like to be, it just might be your mindset.

How Do Wealthy People Think Differently?

I recently read Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth. The author, T. Harv Eker, has a fundamental belief that rich vs poor people think very differently than poor people.

Eker believes that each one of us develops a unique “money and success blueprint” over time. This blueprint is the result of mass marketing, parental influence, education and all sorts of other factors.

The most widely known book that put this in a good content is Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad. But after that you really should also ready Loopholes of Real Estate by Garrett Sutton, and Tax Free Wealth by Tom Wheelwright.

1. Wealthy people believe,  “I create my life.” Poor people believe, “Life happens to me.” 2. Wealthy people play the money game to win.  Poor people play the money game to not lose.

17 Ways Wealthy People Think Differently Than Poor People  (According to Harv Eker):

4. Wealthy people think big. Poor people think small. 5. Wealthy people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles. 6. Wealthy people admire other rich and successful people. Poor people resent rich and successful people.
