They say that money doesn’t make you happy, but being poor doesn’t make you happy either.
Banknotes in themselves won’t make you smile from ear to ear (unless you win the lottery, but that will still be a temporary happiness). However, money can give you a lot of opportunities that you wouldn’t have as someone who is barely making ends meet. After all, it’s not about how much money you have, but rather what you do with it. Poor people tend to think differently, have different habits and a different way of approaching life than rich people. That is why it is easier for people with a ‘good attitude’ to make a living or to bounce back after bankruptcy. Poor people, on the other hand, can let go of assets they inherit or win.
Learn the six most common mistakes poor people make. Avoid them and you may one day make a pretty good fortune yourself.

04 Using excuses
How many times have you heard phrases like “If you had two kids, you wouldn’t have time to work out either!” from your friends. This is a pretty ill-considered excuse, because after all, playing with your kids can be a great workout too! You can also watch them play with themselves and, in the meantime, do a vigorous half-hour workout in your own home. You really don’t have to sit in a gym for seven hours at a time to look good. There are many examples of mothers and successful women who somehow “miraculously” find time for everything. So why can’t some people find the time? Because they do not want to. Let’s not deceive ourselves, children do not demand attention 24/7, so the “masters of excuses” have time for watching TV, gossiping with friends or other trivial activities. Training is not.
Another popular excuse is “After work I’m so tired I don’t have the energy to do anything anymore!”. This is a common excuse. If you really care about something, you do it. There are people who find the motivation to go to the gym even though they have worked hard during the day, often even physically. It is all a matter of choice. Besides, if you have a thankless job which drains your strength and “finishes you off” – look for another one! Nobody is forcing you to be a “slave”. It may require you to learn and acquire new skills to increase your value in the labour market.
