If you don’t know what keeps you poor, then you’ll remain poor

If you don’t know what keeps you poor, then you’ll remain poor… and if you are not even willing to look, then I know your future, as surely as if it had already happened.

habits-that-will-keep-you-poorThis may be the most important question... because I am certain you are not rich...

If you don’t know what keeps you poor, then you’ll remain poor... and if you are not even willing to look, then I know your future, as surely as if it had already happened.

I have been observing myself and have found, so far, seven things that keep me poor, that each, by itself, could keep me poor.

How willing you are to look deeply will be the best feedback for you, like a promise, like a horoscope, like fortune telling:

...because if you don’t know what keeps you poor, then you’ll remain poor... or get even poorer.

Life is not forgiving.

You don't have to use your name, but if you are unwilling to comment... that will say the same thing.

So, start looking and start commenting.

I am not particularly interested in surface stuff. Or even money stuff... I am also not interested in belief crap...

If you are in my 67-step coaching... go beyond where you've stopped... and go deeper, wider, so you can map out all the things that you can detect with your current level of understanding.

Warning: poverty is not about money and being rich is not about money.

You can be poor and have a lot of money!

    1. 1. I have never focused on becoming rich.I haven’t studied it extensively, and the times that I looked into money-making propositions like real estate, I did not follow up and do the work.
    2. 2. My lack of mastery and focus on a skill, craft, or area of knowledge to the level that I deserve a lot of money in exchange for what I can provide.
    3. 3. Being depressed detracted from my wealth-building years (low-paying jobs, etc.).
    4. 4. Spending more money than I made, and accumulating a lot of credit card debt.(I went through a bankruptcy about 10 years ago.)
    5. 5. Not taking actions consistent with being rich: Investing, starting a business, pursuing a profession that earns a lot of money.
    6. 6. Not being interested in doing something just to make money.

    In short, not doing anything to deserve being rich.

  1. Let me add two things:

    1. Relative to the rest of the world, I am rich and wealthy, mostly as a result of having been born in the United States to industrious parents. We were never rich, but I always had what I needed and almost everything I wanted. I had the experience of wealth, or plenty, or comfort while growing up. The afterglow of that feeling continues, for better or for worse. The flavor of it is: I will always be taken care of. Actually, this is kind of how I have played the game of life, as a fragile thing needing to be protected from the world.

    2. I have a difficult relationship with being here, present in my life and experience. I have not taken responsibility for it. I have not embraced it fully. I’m stumbling through my life. I’m not really causing it. If life is a game, I’m on the field, but still sitting on the bench. And I’m hoping to not be called in to play; I’m happy enough to just be in uniform, going through the motions. That’s a kind of poverty. Anything piled on top of that is a lie.

  2. I’m in. Been in for two weeks. Best advice: “Learn to love the grind.” Trying to get into the mindset of being worth a damn.
