(1) You are in charge of your life. You are poor because of stupid, mindless, & negative choices. If you want to be wealthy, first become educated, strategize & achieve your goals, brand yourself, & adopt positive & life enhancing behaviors.
(2) Don't marry & have children before you are established educationally & career-wise-one should marry & have children in his/her 30s, at that time, h/she is established educationally & career-wise. The earlier one marries & have children(in his/her 20s), the more impoverished h/she is likely to be. Oftentimes when one marries & have children early, his/her plans for further education is severely curtailed. The time that should be spent furthering one's education & career is spent on marriage & parenthood. Also when one marries in his/her 20s, he/she isn't established socioeconomically but is struggling.
(3) Don't have large families. Poor people tend to have large families. There is a strong correlation between poverty & large families. Large families do nothing except to reduce the family further into poverty. Fathers have to endlessly work to provide for an ever-growing family but to no avail. Children have to go w/o proper food, clothing, & medical care. It is common in large families do w/o, even the basic rudiments. Rich/wealthy people oftentimes have small families. They know that small families have more socioeconomic & educational opportunities than large families. There is more monies allocated in small families than in large families.
