It Takes A Selfish Person To Stay Poor!
Part One Yeah, I know, I just said it. It takes a selfish person to stay poor. Not be poor but stay poor. Yes, a lot of people tend to think of poor people as kind, and rich people as greedy and selfish, but the truth of the matter is the longer you stay poor, the more selfish you truly are. Let's think about this before you burn me at the stake for calling you selfish.
So you are poor and struggling and you run out of money right before payday…One paycheck from being homeless as they would say…You think only about yourself and your most immediate family members…How will you eat, how will you pay rent, how will you get to the next payday? Now occasionally you express your kindness by helping one person here or there, as long as it doesn't stop you from eating. But really - are you changing the world? NO. For the most part your everyday actions are pretty selfish; thinking about you and your kids. You aren't thinking about starving people in Africa - after all there are starving people in your own house! Yet rich people are selfish and greedy, right? Some people may give a donation to the causes, but for many people they need a donation themselves. Now look at people who have more money so they aren't struggling – Yeah, rich people.
Have you ever stopped to think how many diseases their money is curing?.How many people's lives their money is saving.Nope, because they are the greedy ones… My daughter asked me about this one day. She said ‘Mom, why would you say that it takes a selfish person to stay poor?’ I said ‘Okay, think about it for a sec. If you are poor who can you help? If you cannot buy yourself food, who can you help? If you don't know if you will have a place to live soon, who can you help? She said ‘no one’. I said ‘exactly’.We live in America, the land where there are one million new Millionaire households every year…it takes someone who is really all about themselves to stay poor. Well, what about Mother Teresa? Well Mother Teresa was backed by the Catholic church, who were multi-millionaires, and so really she helped millions of people through money from the Catholic church so really she wasn't poor.If all she had to work with was a paycheck would she have made the same impact on the world? You can say yes, but the real answer is no. She could help millions because she could afford to spend her time doing that…she wasn't worried about the money to help them, or how she would eat.
it was all taken care of for her. The world is waiting for you to make an impact on it. You can’t help anyone if you cannot help yourself, so why don't you decide today that you will make a greater contribution to mankind? Do you plan to stay poor ?
