I read of the lottery winner (88 million net winnings) who bailed her boyfriend out of jail for 6 million dollars. It broke my heart. She will be flat broke in ten years, living in a trailer park. She has a demon called poverty.…/lottery-winner-marie-holmes-s…/

There was a study long ago that a very wealthy man gave 100 people $100,000 each. He told them to use the money as they saw fit. That is Ten Million Dollars. This was in the 1920s. A hundred grand was about like 2 million today. He gave to people of all economic and social strata. Rich, middle class and poor. So they all had a start. All were in their 40s. Experience was not the issue. In 5 years doing a longitudinal study, he came to all these folks and discovered this truth: The rich got richer, in some cases MUCH richer. Some of the Middle Class did some better, but the poor were just as poor as they started out at the end of 5 years. He asked the rich to help offset his "loss" for the study and he got all his money back. The money given to the poor and the middle class he made no request. 

MONEY is NOT a solution to poverty. A change in attitude and complete deliverance from the Spirit of Poverty is the only answer. IF you think you are different, consider this, why? IF I were able to give you a million dollars. you would end up exactly where you are right now.. at least according to the study. I agree with the article below.. it tells the truth. IF some of these attitudes offend you, you just may have a demon called poverty locked up somewhere.

I agree in particular with these:

Average people believe you need money to make money. Rich people use other people’s money.

Average people believe the markets are driven by logic and strategy. Rich people know they’re driven by emotion and greed.

Average people live beyond their means. Rich people live below theirs.

Average people teach their children how to survive. Rich people teach their kids to get rich.

Average people let money stress them out. Rich people find peace of mind in wealth.

Average people would rather be entertained than educated. Rich people would rather be educated than entertained.

Average people think rich people are snobs. Rich people just want to surround themselves with like-minded people.

Average people focus on saving. Rich people focus on earning.

Average people play it safe with money. Rich people know when to take risks.

Average people love to be comfortable. Rich people find comfort in uncertainty.

Average people believe they must choose between a great family and being rich. Rich people know you can have it all.
