POVERTY




Poverty is the scarcity or the lack of a certain (variant) amount
of material possessions or money. Poverty is a multifaceted concept,
which may include social, economic, and political elements. Absolute
poverty, extreme poverty, or destitution refers to the complete lack
of the means necessary to meet basic personal needs such as food,
clothing and shelter.

Poverty:

The state of having little or no money
and few or no material possessions



What is Poverty Mentality?



Poverty mentality is an attitude. It's a way of thinking that is said
to perpetuate poverty because the focus is on what one doesn't have
rather than what one does have. Thoughts and comments such as "I can't
afford this..." and "I'll never have enough money for that..." may turn
out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's not clear where this concept
came from, but one of the earliest motivational speakers to discuss it
was Zig Ziglar.

Zig Ziglar noted that focusing on the concern about what is missing in
one's life rather than focusing on what is there can lead to further
poverty. Ziglar and others believe the ones who break out of poverty
and really succeed are those who use what they do have, are grateful
for what they do have and most of all aren't jealous of what others have.
Basically, it's an attitude of self-belief and empowerment rather than
one of self-pity and jealousy that is thought to combat the destructive
poverty mentality.

Being positive and building on what you do have can lead to developing a
positive, workable plan that can lead to all types of successes even if
you don't believe the so-called poverty mentality exists. The ideas of
thinking positively and believing in our selves and our abilities often
seem so cliche that many of us tend to ignore these concepts. Yet if we
think about it, ignoring them may be quite self destructive.

If we don't want to live in poverty, no matter how much we may wish to be
rich or richer it isn't enough. We have to have a workable plan and an
attitude that brings money our way rather than repels it and keeps others
from wanting to help us. The first step in overcoming poverty mentality
is becoming aware that we have it. We can rethink the statements we make
about money and stop focusing on being poor. Rather than concentrating on
what we don't have compared to others, we need to focus on what we do have,
what our purpose is and how we can positively get what we want.
