Livinglifeph: Why the Rich gets Richer and the Poor gets Poorer.

Let me tell you a secret in this financial world – INFORMATION is MONEY.

Here in, we will discuss why the rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer (esp. in the Philippines but also in the World.). As some of you have already noticed, this vicious cycle will probably never end, the question is, WHERE WILL YOU BE?

Are you the Rich or the Poor? (er)…

Point of Secrecy.

It is a no brainer guys. Being rich is one of the utmost secret human beings try to keep from the masses. Problem is, this secret is the same as water – in due time, it will gush out and leak. Nowadays, it is easier to get richer than poorer. I don’t want to sound bashful but often the poor curses the richer by sabotaging both opportunities to become successful and powerful. You could see it everywhere, everyone just wants to have a “Better Place” but nobody wants to stand up for that ideal. So where do they ask for? You name it:

Politicians, Businessman, Tycoons, Conglomerates, even… Syndicates.

Often, the poor blames the society or the government on their state of lives, but apparently, they are blind to their own misunderstanding – they lack the motivation and effort to succeed. And you could see this on the streets.

Point is, if you want to be successful, you got to do it yourself. Focus and Motivation goes a long way (and EDUCATION). Eventually, you will find that the secret is not a secret anymore. (On my experience, I never heard about getting rich in Stocks and UITFs until I researched and did it MYSELF.). 

So, stop watching that TV for news about change in life, it will never come. You gotta go grab the opportunity to work or invest to become successful.

A Matter of Inheritance (Or Not):

We all have this quote at least one time – “My family is not Rich, so am I” or “I will never get rich because I wasn’t born one.”.

On my point of view, it’s all a load of rubbish. See, you can’t always blame your inheritance and have it as an excuse to not strive to be better.

You can’t become rich by clinging on that aspect, it will never work. You have to be positive and downright HARDWORKING!

I remember this co-worker of mine, smart and charismatic, but he fails to understand that without due diligence, you won’t get rich just by expecting change. You got to do work. And of course, as he always say- “After all, I am not born rich.” – then, he didn’t get anywhere. Right now, he still works in a Pizza shop. Remember, under-achievement is a path to failure.


Don’t be that guy:

You can change your life and live it to the fullest. If there is one person whom you could blame then there is NONE, because if you read my Ebook “Living Successfully in the Philippines”, I assure you that you can change for the better.

Stop blaming yourself, your family, the government or your heritage. You will be rich and successful, but it’s gonna be a matter of time. So, you have to start first with yourself. Do yourself a favor and get my ebook.


*But What About those POOR KIDS, THE SICK, and THE ELDERLY?:

Well, let me let you in to another secret; often this is disregarded by everybody… However, “Don’t worry about them, worry about yourself first. When you become rich and successful, it is then your turn to help them.”.

The other reason why the poor is poorer is because the rich often neglects their poor. The only time everybody gets to be successful is when everybody stops looking at each other’s inequality and start helping each other instead.

Live Rich in the Philippines.
