Middle Class Mentality vs. The Rich

Middle Class Mentality

Middle Class Mentality

  • Buying everything on credit and paying interest
  • Getting a job and not looking past it
  • Being loyal to a single company even if you have more potential to do something better
  • Thinking the week is for always working and the weekend always is for playing
  • Being OK with living paycheck to paycheck or having a few thousand dollars in the bank
  • Not having a plan for the future
  • Doing everything yourself and refusing to pay other people

The (Hard-Working) Rich Mentality

  • extremely hard-working. They don’t treat weekends as play time but more grow time.
  • able to blend work and personal life as one instead of doing all that work/life balance stuff.
  • patient. They realize that a payoff doesn’t necessarily have to come today or tomorrow. As long as the circumstances are setup for the payoff to happen, that’s all that matters.
  • are willing to pay others to do work that isn’t related to their primary goals. Have you ever seen a CEO change his own oil or cut her own grass?
