SUCCESS MINDSET: Differences Between the Poor and Rich People’s Mindset

The Differences between the Rich Mindset versus the Poor Mindset

Do you want to know what is the difference between the rich and the poor people? It’s simple, their mindset. Here are the examples on how these two classes of people differs.

Mindset #1. Managing Money for the Rich People vs Wasting Money for the Poor People

You can already spot the difference. Rich people manage their money wisely. They always make sure that when they spend, they will always get the most out of their money. The rich people will focus more on the quality and don’t mind if they have to pay a higher price. That is to make sure that they can use what they bought for a very long time.

How about the poor people? Instead of managing their hard earned money, they are better in wasting it. They are more into fad items that they don’t really need. They just buy it because everyone has it. Most of the times, they buy cheap products with low quality just to keep up. The end result, they lost the money and a defective item. What a waste!

Mindset #2. Rich people wants to get paid based on the results while poor people wants to get paid based from the time they invested

Rich people are mostly businessmen and entrepreneurs. They focus on the results of a certain project and ask to get paid based on the value of it. It will mean more income regardless of the time spent working.

Poor people demands on getting paid per hour as mostly, employees are getting paid for their time. By doing this, you will not earn more or less of what your rate is. Means you are restricted to earn more.

Mindset #3. The rich people promote themselves and their values while poor people have a negative self worth

Rich people highlights what they can do. They do not have to bring up their weaknesses. If any, they are willing to work on it to become a better person. It will gain the trust of their clients and have more business to earn from.

Poor people tend to be on the negative side of things. They like to talk about how bad they are into something. Instead, they should be highlighting their skills more. This is due to their belief and low self worth. That’s why they will just stay where they are instead of trying a greener pasture.

Mindset #4. Rich people admire richer people than them but poor people resent rich people

Rich people look up to their own kind. If the person is richer than them, they will idolize the person. They will make sure to be on the same circle so they can learn their ways and lifestyles. That, for them is the best way to become more successful.

Poor people hates rich people. They think that only rich people can have everything. They also believe that if they don’t exist, they can have better lives.

Mindset #5. Rich people focus on the opportunities around them while poor people focus more on obstacles

When a disaster happened, rich people focus more on the opportunities there is in the situation. They believe that everything that is happening can always open an opportunity.

Poor people loves to do the pity party. They focus more with the obstacles. If it seems so hard, they will just give up and feel sorry for themselves.

Mindset #6. The rich people always think big while poor people only thinks small

Why do you have to think small if you can think big? Rich people always think big. They don’t waste their time with small projects that will not give them big results.

Poor people thinks small because they are afraid to get disappointed. They believe that the smaller their dreams are, the more achievable they will be. The result of thinking small is to stay poor.

From these examples, which one are you? Do you have the rich mindset or the poor mindset? If you want to stay poor, then you can continue practicing that mindset. But if you want to get rich, then it’s time to change how you think. Think they way rich people and millionaires do.

The 5 P’s of a SUCCESSFUL Life

The 5 P’s of a SUCCESSFUL Life

We all want to succeed in life – in fact, we want to succeed in everything we do. But the secret to success lies not only on your skill but on the comprehensive alignment of five components – PASSION. PATIENCE. PERSISTENCE. PURPOSE. PRAYER. Kung akala mo kaya mo lahat daanin sa galing o sa angas lang, nagkakamali ka. Kailangan mo pa rin lahat nang nabanggit ko para talagang successful ka.

Today I would like to speak to you about these components that would make you a truly successful individual, no matter where you are, no matter what you do.


When we talk about your passion – we talk about something that you love doing – come hell or high water. Harangan ka man ng sibat, walang makakapigil sa iyo. Dahil yan ang gusto mo – yan ang passion mo – ito ang nagtutulak sa iyo na gumawa – upang maging maligaya. In a world that is driven by passion, you must have one thing you are truly passionate about. You need to be able to align your actions and your decision based on your passion. This would be your underlying motivation – your burning desire to keep things going. Kung di ka passionate, laging me kulang sa ginagawa mo – laging mayroong nawawala – hindi buo ang naibibigay mo. Hindi ka satisfied, hindi ka contented. Whereas when you are passionate, you would give everything to make sure it is going to be successful – your time, your effort, your resources – everything will be lined up for you. And more importantly, you will be happy in what you are doing.


We keep on hearing – patience is a virtue. Yes. It is a virtue that would allow you to succeed in life. Walang overnight sensation na nagtatagal – ang nananalo palagi yung may sipag, may tiyaga at may pasensya na mag-adapt sa lahat ng mga nangyayari sa inyong buhay. There will always be a good time to act – there will always be a great time to decide. You do not succeed when you make impulsive decisions – you succeed when you make patient decisions – you wait out everything before acting, you make sure of everything first before you commit. It’s not cowardice, it’s not indecision – you are simply making sure everything is in place before you move. There lies the difference. Hindi naman maganda ang ora-orada di ba?


Just because you didn’t get the desired result, you would give up? This is not a winning attitude. Winners do not always start as winners. Some falter, some take a knee, some take a fall or two before really being successful. Hindi lahat ng panalo, nagsisimula sa panalo – minsan sila ay natatalo muna pero laging bumabangon. It’s comparable to the frog that was being told to stop by his colleagues. He didn’t stop until he reached the end. His colleagues were astonished to find out he was deaf! We must be stubborn sometimes – minsan, may patutunguhan ang pagiging matigas ang ulo – kung kakayanin mo lahat ng dumarating sa iyo, you will undeniably find success. You just have to be positively persistent – you need to be making the right decisions.


You have to make sure before you begin to do anything to ask yourself, what is my ultimate purpose? Is this going to be for the common good? Is this going to be for the betterment of others or just for myself? Normally, ang mga nagtatagumpay inuuna ang kapakanan ng mas nakararami bago ang kanyang sarili. Sabihin mo nang napakaidealistic ng statement na yun, but it is real – it is what really happens. Yes, you may profit from your venture, you may get money from everything you do but the most important thing that you have to consider is if it will positively affect the lives of the people around. Always make sure that anything you would do would uplift the lives of others – because if that is your purpose, you would easily meet with success – because your purpose is truthful, pure and is undeniably for the common good.


Of course, no one really becomes successful without the guidance from the Heavenly father – or upon whomever you call for guidance. Lahat tayo need ng divine inspiration, need natin ang divine intervention – kasi we have to be able to see the hand of the Almighty. Prayer is not only a plea for guidance, it would also be a silent commune with ourselves. During our time of reflection, our time of prayer, we contemplate and we seek the balance in everything we do. And in this time, we get clarity – we get the guidance we need to make things happen. Nakikita natin ang ating dapat gawin, ano ba ang ating dapat tahakin, nang mas malinaw? Prayer not only leads us closer to the Almighty, it also gives us an avenue to look for the solutions that we need – the path of enlightenment, the path to success.

Success is worthwhile when it is founded on the 5Ps – PASSION. PATIENCE. PERSISTENCE. PURPOSE. PRAYER. These things make it possible to be a balanced individual – make it possible for you to be as good as you can be. This would be a good balance – a good foundation for someone who seeks to make his mark in this world, in this society that is thirsty for people who would continuously shine so that others would also shine in his light.

God Bless!
