1. Rich People Believe that They Create their Own Destiny while Poor People Believe that they are Predestined
Destiny refers to the predetermined course of events in one‟s life. The idea of destiny has a deep history and divine intervention is the most popular belief. People trust that their lives depend on the will of a supernatural being. All of the actions are in vain if it does not coincide with the will of the divine.
⇒ Destiny versus Action
Rich people create an amazing life because they do not believe in predetermined fate. Instead, they believe that life is what they make it. If you repose all day and wait for the big fruit to fall into your mouth, nothing will move. Everything will stay in its place unless you move it. Like Newton‟s Law of Motion, “Unless acted upon by a net external force, a body at rest remains at rest and a body in motion remains in motion”. This scientific example is true even in real life and rich people apply this theory in their lives. For rich people, they believe they are responsible for their own life. They create their own destiny and not the economy, luck or knowledge.
Poor people, on the other hand, believe that they are the slaves of their own destiny. Whatever they do, adversaries come no matter how they elude them.
⇒ In-Control versus Out-of-Control
Poor people believe they live an unruly life. Their existence is very uncontrollable. When they act, the results are always unmanageable. When they fail in their endeavors, they blame the economy, the boss, their family and others who did not go accordingly.
Rich people think otherwise. Life is a series of plans. With the right planning and appropriate actions, the results are favorable. They take full accountability for all their actions.
When you keep on thinking that life only happens to you, you will eventually lose the power to change things and control your life. A rich man takes responsibility for the circumstances he created while a poor man feels like a victim of the world. If you want to attain financial abundance, think as a rich man would do. Believe that you create your future and not other people or events.
