Poverty is the scarcity or the lack of a certain (variant) amount of material possessions or money.
Poverty has been in existence since ages but its more rampant now, because most people aren’t willing to take challenge to get up and get out of bed. No matter how hard we try to help the poor, most of them still remain poor, not because they enjoy being poor but because they haven’t developed the wealthy habit. Everyone wants to live In luxury, no one enjoys being poor, but the problem is, they only wish to be and they never decide to be.
” I remember riding in a top top (Keke) heading home and there’s this man sitting right before me lip singing a song. What amused me was how he was seriously rejecting poverty with all his might, what he didn’t realize was rebuking poverty wouldn’t change a thing until he decide to decide. This happen everywhere and everyday. There are scenarios where you might have seen group of people who regularly go to drink at a particular spot. If you are opportune to eavesdrop in their conversation you would be shocked at their conversation on how they constantly sit on a spot and wish to be rich. They never decide and take action. The universe only rewards speed and action, it reads the mind and instantly responds.
Most people would cast blame on the society for not offering employment, for supporting favoritism and practicing too much corruption . We need to think and learn to live beyond the average mentality. Owner of private companies spring up each day are owned by humans like us, most of them do not have qualifications but they put their ideas into action. The excuse most people come up with is “all humans are not the same and can never be”. Not until that mentality is changed, they would get nothing done. It irritates me when people say the society is useless, they can’t create job opportunities for its citizens. Joyce mayer said ” its useless to complain about something, if you could change it but aren’t willing to do so”. Complaining is useless. Why waste time complaining when you can literally use e to sort out ideas and put it into action. If you are getting nothing out of life, you’ve got yourself to blame. If I’m not getting opportunities, I blame no one but myself, probably because I wasn’t studying and working enough. Dreamers never sleep. One has to work his ass off, if he wants to live a comfortable life.
Decide and put it into action and see the result. No cross no crown.
Some major causes of poverty.
•Lack of confidence. 99% of people in the world can be productive, but, they lack confidence in themselves. They are often confronted by fear, they are too scared to face the crowd, they doubt their ideas, they intimidate and underestimate themselves. Jack canfield will always say ” feel the fear and do it anyways”. Everyone has in them seeds of excellence but lack of confidence makes them remain poor.
• Wishing and never deciding. You don’t wish to be great, you decide to be great. 70% of people in the world are wishers but don’t decide. The only way to live without regrets is to do what you know you should do, when you know you should do it.
•Faulting others. The best thing most people do best is to fault either one witch or a wizard for their misfortune . If only they can accept their mistake and plan a way forward. You are not a mistake because you make mistakes, you can always correct them by accepting them
There are people who work their ass off, the moment they get their pay, they lavish their hard earned money on unnecessary things. They don’t have a vision board. They don’t learn to do first thing first. Planing and creating vision boards makes life much more easier.
If we believe in ourselves and spend more time trying to figure out ideas and apply them, it would help reduce poverty in the society.
