Why Rich People Think Differently – and How Exactly

The rich think differently than normal people. They have different values, different hobbies, and because of these differences they are rich.

Here are the 17 reasons why and how rich people think differently.

Rich people think poverty is the root of all evil …

… and normal think that money spoils character. When they suddenly become rich, they sometimes even feel embarrassed. Rich people know that money alone does not make them happy. But they are convinced that money makes many things much easier. And that possession is not a disgrace.

Rich people consider egoism a virtue …

… and ordinary people think egoism is a vice. And that’s why they stay poor. Because only those who think of themselves make progress. And, by the way: only those who make progress can even begin to help others.

Rich people are doers …

… and normal people are lottery players. They hope that chance will strike and the six right ones will come with additional numbers. And while they wait, time is running out. Rich people don’t wait, they just do. They solve their problems themselves, instead of hoping that someone or something will do it for them.

Rich people specialize in something …

… and normal people believe that good education is enough for success. They fight for good grades in school or university. But many entrepreneurs or corporate leaders don’t even have a completed education or at least a straightforward curriculum vitae. Many people who have made it to the top have accumulated their wealth by learning and offering very specialized knowledge. They can do something that few others can do – and that they can do quite exceptionally well.

Rich people dream of the future …

… and ordinary mourn after the good old days. Everything used to be better – those who believe that can only despair of the present. And he won’t get rich at all. For that you have to rely on everything becoming much better in the future. Many self-made millionaires have done this and taken the plunge into the unknown in the hope that their idea will prevail.

Rich people turn their passion into their profession …

… and ordinary people work in a profession they often don’t even enjoy. And subconsciously they say to themselves that work must be exhausting (otherwise it wouldn’t be work). Rich people, on the other hand, have often managed to turn their hobby into a profession and earn a lot of money with it. That’s why they don’t mind working all the time.

Rich people face enormous challenges …

… and normal people set their goals low for fear of disappointing themselves. But without seemingly impossible goals there can be no seemingly unthinkable success. The rich often fail to achieve this, but that doesn’t scare them off.

Rich people know that the stock market is dominated by greed and emotions …

… and normal people think that it is rational there. That’s why they get caught cold when the prices go roller coaster once again. After that they only buy life insurance and which they think is the real wealth.

Rich people teach their children how to get rich …

… and normal people don’t. Money is often not an issue for them – and certainly not for their upbringing. So every generation starts all over again and makes all the mistakes again. Rich parents explain to their children from an early age how their life became, how it is.

Rich people find inner peace through money …

… and normal people sink into stress. Those who have no money worry about rent. Those who have a lot of money are afraid of losing it. The rich tick there quite differently. They see money more as a tool for earning even more money. As an option on various new possibilities to make even more out of the future. For them, money is the great liberator.

Rich people prefer education to entertainment …

… and normal people like to be sprinkled with water. Instead, rich people educate themselves further. They read non-fiction books instead of “50 Shades of Grey”. They take evening classes instead of the evening program.

Rich people surround themselves with like-minded people …

… and normal too – to their disadvantage. They see rich people as snobs, or at least tell themselves that. This makes them feel better and they don’t have to face their own mediocrity. That’s not wise, because who learns anything from people who can’t do it themselves?

Rich people concentrate on making money …

… and normal people concentrate on saving. But money in your account doesn’t make you rich. Money must work. That’s riskier. But in the long run almost always more rewarding.

Rich people feel comfortable with risks …

… and normal people just want to feel good. But you don’t become a millionaire without the drive to improve the here and now. Those who have managed to become millionaires have usually learned early on to feel comfortable despite or precisely because of the uncertainty that every change has in itself.

Rich people expect their lives to get better and better …

… and normal people assume that they will fight against the descent. But with this attitude, every mistake holds the potential for disaster. Those who are not afraid of it because they are convinced of a better future dare more.

Rich people are addicted…

… especially after success. They also don’t find anything to do with strange habits, crazy working hours or other abnormal behaviour. Normal people tend to believe that any obsession is bad per se. For the rich, life and work are a game. And they absolutely want to win.

Rich people think that they can have everything…

… and normal people think they have to make up their minds. Between job and family, between friends and colleagues. That’s why they often hesitate to throw themselves 200 percent into a project.
