    What creates a poverty, struggling consciousness, mentality, mindset, philosophy, & psychology?

    What makes such people have an inverse logic that being socioeconomically poor, penurious, struggling, even impoverished are superior to that of being socioeconomic affluent, wealthy, & even rich without a struggle in the world?  Logical, intelligent answers please.  Any answer glorifying poverty & struggle & denigrating wealth will be.........DELETED!

    The poverty mindset is born of the desperation that you don't have enough, can't get enough, if you get it, spend it or hoard it, fear clouding long term decision making.

    The inability to learn from others mistakes before making our own, not learning from our own mistakes, not demanding more from ourselves, not associating with people who are goal/success oriented. (Adapt to succeed).
    One also has to have "dream" or "goal" that drives them.
    No one succeeds by "accident".
    Last but not least avoiding major mistakes such as having children before being in a position to adequately take care of them, committing crimes that lead to felony records, and using drugs or whatever to escape reality. When (we) change our circumstances change!
    One needs ambition, a clear head, focus, and determination.

      And opportunities. A hand up not hand out.
