How do you look at the world? The rich and the poor have a completely different look to the world. Opportunities and risks are not the same for rich and poor people. The rich are looking at many things as an opportunity, but poor people consider the same happenings as risk. In this article, we’ll explain how to change your mind to use all the opportunities in the best way.
Do you make your choices based on the opportunity or risk?
Our choices make our lives. So it’s important to know how we make our choices. Usually we make our choices based on the most important things for us. For example, color is the most important factor for some people. So they finally choose based on the color of the clothes, not even by its model and price.
The difference between the rich and the poor makes the rich looking for opportunity and focus on getting it. But the poor pay attention more on losing the opportunity. The poor people always regret about their lost opportunities. It means that the prominent thing in a rich person’s mind is using the opportunity but in a poor person’s mind is losing the opportunity.
Rich people focus on achievements in life, but poor people focus on potential risks and disadvantages. In fact, the difference between the poor and the rich is the same as seeing half empty or full of the glasses. Of course, we do not mean thinking positively. It means looking deep into the world.
Rich people also see dangers and risks. But they find the opportunity in the depth of the risks and use it. As a result, after finding the opportunity, they make their choices based on it, but poor people make their choices based on fear and actually make their lives based on their fears.
Why do poor see the risks and the rich see opportunities? This issue relates to the criteria of the individual minds.
How are the poor and rich mind’s criteria?
The poor people mind’s criterion is usually: “what will happen if it fail?” Or “No it is impossible”. Average people are a bit more optimistic, their mind criterion is: “I hope to be.” That is, poor and average people do not focus on success. They think about failing and then achieve the same failure or hope to succeed, and this will change them to average people but cannot make them rich.
Rich people, as we said earlier, take the results of their lives responsibility. Therefore, their mind criterion acts on the basis of the acceptance the responsibility of the results. That is, their mind’s criterion is: “It will be succeeded. Because I will execute it.” Their criterion is that they expect themselves to be successful. So they try for it. Even if they fail, because they expect themselves to be successful, they will learn some lessons from this failure and use of them for the next success.
Rich people usually say: “The bigger risk, the more rewards.” Rich people, as they are constantly looking for an opportunity, are also at risk. They say: “If we fail, we can always return our money”. On the other hand, poor people are waiting for failure, avoiding danger and never trust themselves and their abilities. When we avoid the risk, we also lose opportunities. Because most of the time the opportunity is in danger. Like a pearl hid in the heart of the shell.
How to analyze the risks?
The poor do not risk because they do not know how to analyze it. But the rich are going to welcome the analyzed risks. That is, they search before they risk on it. Do the necessary things and get the required information. Then, based on the information and facts that they have gained, they make decisions and do the risk.
Many poor people realize the fact that they must be at risk in order to get the most valuable things in life. But they do not know that they should analyze the risk and study about it, or do not properly analyze the risk. As a result, they are disappointed and do not get the opportunity. One of the reasons for this is that when someone decides to risk, he focuses on the dangers of the road instead of focusing on opportunity.
How to focus on getting more opportunities?
The rich people focus on opportunity, so the opportunities increased for them. The poor people focus on barriers, so the barriers are getting bigger for them. As a result, when poor people take risks, their biggest problem is how to deal with all the barriers they create for themselves.
The thing you focus on determines what you will get in life. If you focus on opportunities, that opportunity will be what you will find in life. If you want to become wealthy, spend your money on creating, keeping and investing. Focus on spending if you want to be poor. Stop for a moment. First of every month, do you focus on how you save, or more on how you spend until the end of the month? If your focus is more on how you pay, please improve it.
