9 Differences Between the Super Rich and the Poor
9 Simple Differences between Rich & Poor
Wealth Inequality? - No, it is more a matter of thought. #FYP
There is a mind set, accompanied by a few things, that the Super Rich Do, that the poor just don't understand. I'm not talking about those who have accumulated One or even Three Million Dollars, no I am talking about those who are worth in excess of 100 million dollars.
This mind set is based on principles found in the universe when one studies deeper thoughts. Mystics have knows these fundamentals for centuries, and now Quantum Physics is reaching into the same place of "knowing."
Bottom line - The Mind is either a Beautiful Servant, or a Dangerous Master.
It's a "Mind Set"
1 – The Rich See Abundance
While the poor run around focusing their attention on the “lack” of money, concerning themselves about the unending stack of bills, or just the lack of money to buy the “things” they want. The rich see abundance.
Even long before the rich acquire any wealth, they tend to see things differently. They seem to retain the child like wonder of the marvels of the universe, and see the magic of life all around them. “They see it as abundance.”
THEY SEE THEMSELVES AS ABUNDANT TOO.
Imagine if you will the earth, spinning on it's axis circling the sun, the sun on a path around the Milky Way which takes approximately 225-250 million years, and we are lucky to ride on it (in our current bodies) for this tiny bleep in time.
The poor, while they may appreciate the universe and marvel in amazement – they wont classify it as ABUNDANCE. They see life with limitations – the Rich see it as forever expanding.
Ever wonder why so many people who win One Million Dollars, are broke in just a few years? It is entirely because of the way they see the Million Dollars. The poor see it as means to owning all the “things” they want to buy, or maybe help some other poor soul or to help a cause they hold dear.
The Wealthy see One Million Dollars as “potentially” a $50,000 - $80,000 a year residual income, if invested wisely.
The wealthy understand that a Million is NOTHING MORE than an extra paycheck into the house. Even if they choose to spend, or give away ALL the interest earned – they wont touch the principle. To spend the principle would end the freedom of knowing they always have more. To the wealthy, the “Feeling of Abundance” does not come from owning things. You see, it simply goes back to a Mind set of ABUNDANCE.
Another perfect point on this thought is "delayed gratification" .... the Rich wont spend their money foolishly. They invest it and spend the interest so they appreciate the meaing behind the phrase "Delayed Gratification."
My words fall short, because it really is more a “feeling” than an understanding. Words don't teach, it takes a playful practice to feel your way.
Asking for and Attracting Help
2 – The Wealthy will ask for help.
While the poor are afraid to ask for help when they want it, afraid it will make them look like a beggar, the wealthy are eager to get on with their dreams and projects and will always ask for the help needed. Another project to have fun with, or another dream to build, they know they can not do it alone..... but the universe always provides, and it provides through others. The wealthy will ask until, while the poor may ask, but feel themselves unworthy and wont ask until.
The key point here is, “the wealthy wont hound a few people over and over,” they will move on and seek someone who is willing, ready and able. The poor give up. Strange, the poor are afraid to ask their friends to go to a meeting on a home based opportunity and invest a hundred bucks a month into a home based business that could potentially earn them both $50,000 a year..... Worse yet, if a poor person who's friend does ask them to check it out, they will often look down on the the person as well as the opportunity. Judging their friend, who is presenting the opportunity, as someone who is trying to take something from them. They'll prejudge, without even investigating the opportunity with an open mind as to what it might even do for themselves.
Again – it is the feeling. A feeling of eagerness and excitement that the wealthy have when asking. The poor, being that they tune into lack, may present a venture to a friend, with their own feelings of lack dominating the presentation. They will soon give up, or hound one person over and over making themselves feel even worse. Amplifying their feeling of lack. It's all really about feelings.
The Rich, generally have good peoples skills. (See 4 types of people here)
Abundance Is Everywhere
3 - Accept others.
Believe it or not, one of the key mind sets the wealthy have that poor people do not see, is “the wealthy accept others as they are.” While the poor seem to run around casting judgements on everyone and every situation that makes them feel sad, unworthy or threatened, the wealthy realize it always boils down to how happy they are themselves. They don't have time to spend judging others, nor even time to judge world situations as good or bad. They accept others and things as they are, and worry about “feeling” abundant, "feeling" appreciative (of all life has to offer), and "feeling" eager to move on while enjoying every moment.
With the feeling of abundance comes the feeling of joy, and with that acceptance.
Accept things, and "Others" as they are.
4 - Don't Take Things Personally
The wealthy don't take life, people, nor situations personally. They accept things, and people as they are, and they will continue moving on with what they are working for. Example - If they are eager to move on with a project that potentially could net them millions (so they can buy that yacht they dream about), and the first 50 people they introduce the project too, all say no...... They will ask the 51st person with the same eager enthusiasm as they did the first. The wealthy see that situation just like ketchup.
When you go to a restaurant and the waitress asks you if you want ketchup and you say no, do they take it personally? No!
Why do poor people take a “no” with such extreme feelings of rejection? There are over 5 Billion people on the planet, surly one will say yes, to almost anything.
Interesting... this goes hand in hand with the “feeling of abundance” vs the way the poor see it as a “feeling of lack.”

5 – Assist others
The wealthy do more good than most poor realize. The wealthy are almost always willing to assist others when they have the time or money available to do so. They are more approachable and interested in others than the poor can imagine. Just take time to get to know them and see for yourself. First, put on your acceptance hat, and be willing to ask .... and don't take rejection personally. Ask until.
6 - Appreciation
Appreciation is huge with the wealthy. This again ties into that feeling of abundance that is their constant "mind set." Unfortunately, the poor being focused on their bills, or some world issue or some cause they are fighting against, they do not take enough time to really tune into the emotion of appreciation.
Appreciation is key to receiving abundance.
7 - Focus on Who You Are
The Wealthy focus on who they are. They realize they are greater than what is trapped within the framework of their body. They realize there is a source, a higher power, a God or what ever you choose to name it. They appreciate that power and learn to "allow" source energy to fulfill their hopes, dreams and desires. (See Law Of Attraction Overview)
When going after a goal, the wealthy focus their attention on who they are in this manner, the poor again will end up focusing on lack.
Who are you? Really!

8 - Destinty vs Creator Of Your Reality
When something goes wrong on the pursuit of a dream or goal, the poor will say it was destiny for things to work out as they do. The wealthy on the other hand, will focus on who they are, and look for the gift they gained through the experience and see the event as something they themselves created.
The Wealthy see everything that happens in their life, as something they themselves have created. "Thoughts are things," they say. Something was not quite in alignment for their goal to manifest exactly as they thought. With eagerness, appreciation, and focusing on “who they really are” they will take the situation as a gain, a lesson learned, and move on.
It's a Matter Of Thought
9 - Vibrations and Higher Self
Already alluded too in points 6-8 – the wealthy see the universe as well as themselves as part of one universe that is forever expanding and wonderfully becoming. They realize they are not separate from their higher self, and are constantly working on allowing a greater connection to that which they are.
Getting Rich, is looked upon as a means of becoming more, being more, doing more. To "Be All You Can Be," to the wealthy, includes attaining wealth.
Unfortunately, the poor see wealth as greed and a sin against others, as if there is a limited supply of wealth. There isn't. There is no set number as to amount of money available in the world. The is no lack.... there is abundance. There is no separation between material wealth and spirituality. ALL is spiritual. All Material Wealth is also Spiritual. ALL is a part of one abundant source.
Again – the poor see lack – the wealthy know better.
Bottom line - "The Mind is either a Beautiful Servant, or a Dangerous Master..... and how you feel, your 'emotions, are the vibrations' that are your guide. When you are happy and feel good, you are attracting that which you desire.... BUT - when you are NOT feeling good, then you are attracting more of that which has you stuck where you are."
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl
“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.”
― Carlos Castaneda
Again - Bottom line - "The Mind is either a Beautiful Servant, or a Dangerous Master..... and how you feel, your "Thoughts" create, and your emotions are your guide."
