HOW TO REMAIN POOR:
1. Never wake up early. Keep stretching and turning in bed until you get too hungry to continue dozing. If there are no bedbugs, why hurry to get up?
2. Never plan how to spend your money. Whenever you get money, start spending it right away and when it's finished, you try to count and recall how you spent it.
3. Don't think of saving until you have real big money. How can you save when you earn so little? Those telling you to save are not sympathetic to your burning needs.
4. Don't engage in activities usually reserved for the "uneducated".
How can you, a graduate, engage in petty trade, network marketing or homebased production? That's for people who never went to school!
5. Don't think of starting a business until an angel comes from heaven and gives you capital. How do they expect you to invest before you get millions? Even though more than half the businesses in your town were started with little capital, you as a smart person can only start with millions.
6. Complain about everything except your own attitude and laziness. Blame the system, the government and the banks that refused to lend you money. They are all bad and do not want you to get rich.
7. Spend more than you earn. To achieve this, buy consumer products on credit and keep borrowing from friends and employers.
8. Compete in dressing. Make sure you're wearing the latest clothes. Intimidate the congregation with your trendy fashions every Sunday.
Whenever your neighbour buys a new phone, you get one that is more expensive.
9. Get yourself a nice second hand car that costs more than three times your yearly salary.
10. Give your children everything they ask for since you're such a loving parent. They should not struggle for anything because you do not want them to suffer that way, they will grow up lazy and hence poor enough to ensure they can't help you at old age.
Do you want to remain poor?

No matter what you do, life always has its storms. The way I see it, there are three things you can do: you can try to run away from the rain, you can curse the fact that it is falling on you, or you can thrill in the moment and dance in the rain! That, my friends, is truly living!" -- Thirumur David Kiran
I penned these lines a few years back when I was at a very low point in my life. Nothing was going right, my life seemed to be falling apart in front of my eyes, and I seemed pretty powerless to do anything about it.
Now, I have a pretty odd tradition. Whenever I am feeling angry or depressed, I take a long walk. And I keep on walking until I get some sort of clarity. However, this time it was pouring rain. But I went out and walked anyways.
Before long I was drenched. It was then that I began to see some very interesting scenes around me. Some people were running for shelter, trying desperately to get out of the rain. Other people—mostly motorists stuck at the traffic light—were cursing the fact that they were getting soaked to the bone with nothing that they could do about it. And then there was a group of children dancing with wild abandon, splashing in the puddles, and having the time of their lives!
My moment of clarity had arrived.
I realized that what I had to do was not try to run away from the difficulty, nor curse the fact that the difficulty had come, but rather to make the most of this time of difficulty, knowing that it would soon pass and all that would remain would be the lessons learned through it. So I went back to my life and did my best to revel in the difficulty. And today I can count a number of blessings and lessons that came through that time of hardship and despair.
Obstacles truly are stepping stones that make us into what we need to be in order to accomplish the work that is ahead. But what do we do when those obstacles arrive? Do we run away from them? Curse the fact that they have come to afflict us? Or do we revel in them and milk them for whatever their worth, knowing that they will pass and only the beauty will remain?
The famous painter Auguste Renoir was world renowned for his beautiful masterpieces. However, Renoir was confined to his home during the last decade of his life, almost completely paralyzed by arthritis. Yet he continued to paint in spite of his infirmities. He couldn't hold a brush anymore, so he strapped to his arm and kept on painting.
One day, a friend visited the elderly artist working in his studio. Renoir face was contorted with agony and it was obvious that he was fighting torturous pain with each brush stroke. Overtaken with compassion, the friend blurted out: “Auguste, why do you continue to paint when you are in such agony?”
Renoir answered simply: “The beauty remains, the pain passes.”
And so, almost to his dying day, Renoir put paint to canvas. One of his most famous paintings, Bathers, was completed just two years before his passing, 14 years after he was stricken by this disabling disease. Auguste Renoir understood that the best things in life are often on the other side of difficulty and so he determined to push through the pain, knowing that the beauty would remain forever. We know this too, in theory, yet how do respond to the difficulty when it hits us?
May God help each of you to dance in the rain and revel in the difficulties, so that you can see the beauty that comes afterwards!
This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood. His name is Sylvestar Stallone. One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars. Back in the day, Stallone was a
struggling actor in every definition. At some point, he got so broke that he stole his wife's jewellery and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes, he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any
stranger. He didn't have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying.
Two weeks later,he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie,ROCKY. He wrote the script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in
the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR. Rocky himself. But the studio said NO. They wanted a REAL STAR.
They said he "Looked funny and talked funny". He left with his script. A few weeks later,the studio offered him $250,000 for the script. He refused. They even offered $350,000. He still refused. They wanted his movie. But NOT him. He said NO. He had to be
IN THAT MOVIE.
After a while,the studio agreed,gave him $35,000 for the script and let him star in it! The rest is history! The movie won Best Picture, Best Directing and Best Film Editing at the prestigious
Oscar Awards. He was even nominated for BEST ACTOR! The Movie ROCKY was even inducted into the American National Film Registry as one of the greatest movies ever!
And do You know the first thing he bought with the $35,000? THE DOG HE SOLD. Yes,Stallone LOVED HIS DOG SO MUCH that he stood at the liquor store for 3 days waiting for the man he sold
his dog to. And on the 3rd day,he saw the man coming with the dog. Stallone explained why he sold the dog and begged for the dog back. The man refused. Stallone offered him $100. The
man refused. He offered him $500. And the guy refused. Yes,he refused even $1000. And,Believe it or Not,Stallone had to pay $15,000 for the same,same dog he sold at $25 only! And he
finally got his dog back!
And today,the same Stallone who slept in the streets and sold his dog JUST BECAUSE he couldn't even feed it anymore,is one of the GREATEST Movie Stars who ever walked the Earth!
Being broke is BAD. Really BAD. Have You ever had a dream? A wonderful dream? But You are too broke to implement it? Too tiny to do it? Too small to accomplish it? Damn! I've been there too many times!
Life is tough. Opportunities will pass you by,just because you are a
NOBODY. People will want your products but NOT YOU. Its a tough
world. If you ain't already famous, or rich or "connected", You will find it rough.
Doors will be shut on You. People will steal your glory and crush your hopes. You will push and push. And yet NOTHING WILL HAPPEN.
And then your hopes will be crushed. You will be broke. Damn broke. You will do odd jobs for survival. You will be unable to feed yourself. And Yes, you may end up sleeping in the streets.
It happens. Yes, it does.
BUT NEVER LET THEM CRUSH THAT DREAM. Whatever happens to
You, Keep Dreaming. Even when they crush your hopes, Keep Dreaming. Even when they turn you away, Keep Dreaming.
Even when they shut you down, Keep Dreaming.
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT YOU ARE CAPABLE OF EXCEPT YOURSELF! People will judge You by HOW you look. And by WHAT You have.
But please, Fight on! Fight for Your place in history. Fight for your glory. NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
Even if it means selling all your clothes and sleeping with the dogs, ITS OKAY! But AS LONG AS YOU ARE STILL ALIVE, Your STORY IS NOT OVER. TRUST ME.
Keep Up the Fight. Keep your dreams and hope alive. Go great .
Like and share if inspired. Lovely day people!

While I dislike %90 of what Trump says and as someone who basically doesn't care about politics at all, credit is due where credit is due
Formal Corperations really are pyramid schemes, that's why you gotta go to school for about 17 years that expects you and your parents to dish out thousands of dollars while getting no money back for a career that you'll change a few times for higher pay then most likely go broke at the age of 65 after working for about 40 years.
