    17 Differences in Thinking of Rich People and Lower Middle Class People Based on T. Harv Eker's book.

    Here are 17 different ways of thinking of the rich and the poor / class people middle down :

    Difference 1:

    Rich people believe "I created My Life."
    Poor people believe "life just happened to me."

    You have to believe that you are in control of your life, especially your financial life. On the other hand, people the poor and the lower middle class play victim roles in their lives. Thus, they will often blame their condition and often justify / excuse their situation.

    After that, they also usually will often complain about everything they face. When you complain, You are actually focusing on the things that are not going well in your life. 

    As a result of natural law, 'what you focus on gets bigger', so their problems will keep getting bigger because of habit complained about it.

    Difference 2:

    The rich play the game of money to win.
    The poor play the game of money not to lose.

    The poor play the game of money on the defensive, not offensive, so they think they have enough money to pay bills on time is already a miracle! Meanwhile, middle class people have one step more advanced, namely wanting to be comfortable. On the other hand, the rich play to create wealth and wealth abundant.

    Difference 3:

    Rich people are committed to being rich.
    Poor people want to be rich.

    There is quite a difference between simply "wanting" and having a commitment to make it happen. Most people just want to be rich, but then have a myriad of reasons not to do anything, such as “too much work”, “not have capital”, “I will never know if people like me for my personality or because my money ”, and so on. 

    The main reason most people don't understand what they want is they don't know what they want. "I want to be rich" is only a very weak first grade strength. 

    The second, stronger level is "I choose to be rich." The third most powerful level is "I have a commitment to be rich."

    Difference 4:

    Rich people think big.
    Poor people think small.

    How you want to live your life depends on your choices. Many people choose to play in the game small with fear. They are very afraid of failure and even fear of success. 

    Your life is not just about you, it is it's also about contributing to others, which is how you add your puzzle pieces to the world.

    Difference 5:

    Rich people focus on opportunities.
    Poor people focus on obstacles.

    If presented with an opportunity, poor people will think, "What if it doesn't work?" or even decided right away that it would not work. Middle class people are a bit more optimistic about their mindset, “I am really hope it will be effective." 

    The rich have a mindset that is responsible for the results in life them, "It will work because I will make it work".

    Difference 6:

    The rich admire the rich and successful.
    Poor people do not like rich and successful people.

    Poor people often view other people's successes with resentment or jealousy. For example, they will say, "Ah, they are very lucky," or "that person must be rich from the result of cheat." 

    If you see the rich as something bad in any way or shape, and you want to be a rich person, then you are never a person rich. 

    On the other hand, the rich admire other rich and successful people, seeing them as a means of self-motivation themselves, and want to learn from them. Praise what you want.

    Difference 7:

    Rich people get along with positive and successful people.
    Poor people get along with people who are negative or unsuccessful.

    The rich are grateful that others have succeeded before them so they now have the blueprint for followed which will make it easier for them to achieve their success. 

    That energy is contagious, it could be you influencing people or being influenced by people. When you hang out with negative and unsuccessful people, then you are also will be exposed to these negative energies. 

    You don't have to bother trying to convert negative people because it will only drain your energy. But, you can be an example, be a successful and happy person, then maybe they'll see the light within you and want that.

    Difference 8:

    The rich are willing to promote themselves and their worth.
    Poor People think negatively about sales and promotions.

    The rich are almost always extraordinary promoters. They can and are willing to promote products, services, and their ideas with great enthusiasm and passion. 

    If you believe what you have to offer it can really help people otherwise, it is your job to let as many people know about it as possible. In this way, you not only help others, you also become rich!

    Difference 9:

    The rich are bigger than their problems.
    The poor are smaller than their problems.

    The poor will do almost anything to avoid trouble. But in truth, the secret to success is not try to avoid or remove or hide from your problem. The secret is to develop yourself you so you outweigh any problems. 
    If you have a big problem in your life, that means it you are a small person.
    Poor and unsuccessful people are problem-oriented. They spend time and energy to complain and rarely generate creative ideas to solve problems.

    Rich people do not stay away from problems, Don't avoid problems, and don't complain about problems. They are financial warriors.

    Difference 10:

    The rich are extraordinary recipients.
    The poor are bad receivers.

    Many people feel ungrateful. In fact 90% of people have the feeling that they are not good enough. That all are stories they tell themselves so that's what happened. 

    This makes you bad receiver. When you are not willing to accept it wholeheartedly, you are training the universe not to give to you. If you are not willing to accept your share, it will move on to someone else.

    Difference 11:

    The rich choose to be paid based on the results.
    Poor people choose to be paid based on time.

    The poor and middle class tend to receive fixed wages or wages based on hours worked. They need a "taste safe ”knowing that the money will be received at the same time, that is, every month. 

    On the other hand, the rich prefer to be paid based on the results they produce, if not in total, then at least partially.

    Difference 12:

    The rich think "both."
    Poor people think "one."

    The rich live in a world of abundance, while the poor live in a world that is limited, because of differences perspective. 

    For example, when you are faced with the question, “do you want a successful career or relationship who is close to your family? " The rich man's answer is "both!" If there are questions that make you have to choose, then ask yourself, "How can I have both?" 

    On the other hand, middle class people believes in the limitation principle, "the cake is too expensive, so I'll only buy a small piece".

    Difference 13:

    The rich focus on their assets.
    Poor people focus on their income.

    The true measure of well-being is assets, not income from work. However, the poor and class Medium focus exclusively on income from work, so most of them have a value asset low or even have no assets. The rich spend their time and energy learning about investing and later invest.

    Difference 14:

    The rich manage their money well.
    Poor people are not able to manage their money properly.

    People who are more prosperous are not smarter than people who are poor. They just have money-related habits different and more supportive. They are better at managing their money. 

    The habit of managing your money is more important than the amount. Until you can show that you can handle what you have, you won't got more. When you start by managing your money well, then you will have a lot more money to manage.

    Difference 15:

    The rich make their money work hard for them.
    The poor work hard for their money.

    The rich understand that you have to work hard until your money is working hard enough to take over your place. 

    They understand that the more money you work, the less you need to work. Thus, you achieve financial freedom. In that situation, you just keep working because it is an option you, no longer an obligation.

    Difference 16:

    The rich act indifferent to fear.
    Poor people let fear stop them.

    Thought produces feelings, feelings produce action, and actions produce results.
    Thoughts and feelings are part of the world within.
    Results are part of the world outside oneself.

    Thus, the desire to act is a bridge between the world within oneself and the world outside oneself. One of the things that keeps many people from taking action is fear. 

    Rich and successful people have a sense of insecurity, doubt, and worry. But they just didn't let this feeling stop them. 

    Since we are beings of habit, we need to practice acting, regardless of fear, doubt, worry, uncertainty, discomfort, and even practice acting when we don't feel like acting all the time.

    Difference 17:

    The rich are constantly learning and growing.
    Poor people think they already know.

    Poor people often try to prove they already know. The rich understand the sequence for success is: "Be, do, have." Meanwhile, the poor and middle class believe the sequence for success is: "Have, do, be."

    Conlusion and Personal Review

    This book Secret of The Millionaire Mind provides a clear picture of the difference in mindset as fundamental why are rich people different from middle class people and lower middle class people. 

    Poor mindset makes you are still poor, whereas a rich mindset will make you rich if you also behave in the right way (do what rich people do).

    In the book The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace Wattles also put forward the same principle to get rich, namely think in a certain way and do certain things act in a certain way. 

    When you do all these things, your frequency will be shifted automatically to the rich frequency, thus making it easier for you to attract wealth yourself.

    Hopefully this review of the book Secret of The Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker can be useful for all of you!
