I’ve never been poor, not really. There are times in my life where I have lacked direction but I’ve never missed a meal for lack of funds. Still, I think about poverty quite a bit. Here’s my take on it, don’t know who said it:

“Broke is just a temporary condition. Poor is a state of mind.”

My father always told me, the wealthy man is the one who is satisfied with what he has. I have found this to be correct. Nothing is a greater waste of time and mental energy than worrying. Worrying solves nothing, it hurts, and it eats up mental resources like there is no tomorrow. I never worry. Which is why I have never been poor.

Money is not a solution, it’s an obstacle. An artificial one at that. If the love of money is the root of all evil then I must be a saint because I absolutely hate money. It’s a horrible concept with few redeeming qualities. It could only have been dreamed up by an economist. It’s why economic is called “The Dismal Science.” Folks…… LIFE IS NOT A ZERO SUM GAME!!!! Until you accept that simple fact, you will always be poor.
