What the Rich Know that You Don't

Aug 17, 2007
Rich people sometimes come by it naturally. Some of them are born into it and learn the ways of the wealthy from their parents. Others are born with a natural bent toward saving money instead of spending it and other helpful habits. If you don't fit into either of these categories, you can still learn things that the rich know.

One thing rich people know is that you shouldn't waste your money. Some of the wealthiest people ever were little children who saved pennies. Learn to respect money. Keep it neat in your wallet instead of cramming it in any old way. Pick up coins from around the house and put them in a piggy bank or coin purse. Money has a way of growing for people who respect it. For instance, think twice if you are in the habit of getting a $3 coffee on the way to work every morning. Learn to make it at home for a fraction of the cost.

Rich people also know that time equals money. How you spend your time will determine much about the material prosperity of your home and life. For one thing, being organized saves much in both time and money. Have a place to keep your bills and an orderly method for getting them paid each month. Have a central calendar on which you can keep track of events you don't want to miss. It takes a few moments to keep up with a system, but the order will be your servant in the end.

Another thing rich people do is ask questions. They are not above learning from others. Are you prideful and unable to admit it when you have been doing something wrong for a long time? If you find out a better way of doing something, by all means, adopt it as your own. No one ever became rich by being a lone ranger who had to do everything their own way. Instead, they learned from the others around them.

Many people have a misconception that asking questions makes you look dumb. Even if that were true, it is worth looking dumb for a moment in order to become smart for the long run, isn't it? Don't let what other people think keep you from making the most out of every learning situation. Then learn from it and from your mistakes. Don't let pride keep you doing things the wrong way!

Rich people not only talk to people to learn things, but they take time to read and improve their minds. Reading will open the door to many new ways of looking at things. Perhaps the thing holding your business or career back is just a little attitude hang-up of yours. Wise words in a classic novel might be the very thing that would alert you to your problem and give you the motivation to change your way of looking at things.

Attitude, in fact, is really where it's at, and rich people know this. Expect good things to happen. Expect people to like you. Expect success and it is very likely to come your way!
