We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Does the poor want to be rich? The rich say you don't!

Many of my neighbors and family members are among the poorest of the poor, and I am no really big difference to begin with. But whose fault is it actually? Then what?

In Ten Decisions You Need to Make to Get Rich, Robert Kiyosaki gives an explanation:

“The rich are rich because they are not focused on day-to-day short-term survival, or the expense column as the poor are. Nor are the rich focused on comfort and the acquisition of liabilities using credit, as the middle class is. The rich are rich because they focus on the long-term acquisition of assets... assets such as stocks, bonds, businesses and income producing real estate. Many times the rich will forsake meals, a steady pay check, a vacation, or the comfort of a nice home, to build or acquire real assets. So decide to be rich, even if you are broke and penniless today." http://getmotivation.com/prosperity/ten-decisions-Robert-Kiyosaki.htm

And the following are interesting percentages as adapted from http://www.theloop.ca/12-things-rich-people-do-that-poor-people-dont/:

A. 86% of wealthy believe in lifelong educational self-improvement vs. 5% of poor

B. 84% of wealthy believe good habits create opportunity luck vs. 4% of poor

C. 81% of wealthy maintain a to-do list vs. 19% of poor

D. 80% of wealthy make Happy Birthday calls vs. 11% of poor

E. 76% of wealthy exercise four days a week vs. 23% of poor

F. 70% of wealthy parents make their kids volunteer 10 hours or more a month vs. 3% of poor

G. 70% of wealthy eat less than 300 junk food calories per day vs. 97% of poor who eat more than 300 junk food calories per day

H. 67% of wealthy write down their goals vs. 17% of poor

I. 67% of wealthy watch one hour or less of TV every day vs. 23% of poor

J. 44% of wealthy wake up three hours before work starts vs. 3% of poor

K. 6% of wealthy say what’s on their mind vs. 69% of poor

L. 6% of wealthy admit to gossiping vs. 79% of poor

When Obama was first elected in 2008, many Africans celebrated redemption from poverty. But his inaugural speech (content.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1872715,00.html) and, especially, his Accra's "rebuke" on dictatorship and corruption (http://archives.newafricaanalysis.co.uk/index.php/key-quotes-from-p... ) offered less promises.

Now that we know god is gone, religions are enslaving, and the government is corrupt, it's each one's duty to curve their fate--paying attention to Do No Harm. Cursing Obama or the rich is of next to zero help.
