How To Overcome a Poverty Mindset

Think Positive

Before we can talk about overcoming this mindset let us find out what it is first. Most people are victims of negative thinking and they do not know. Instead they are blaming the whole world for their mischief’s. Everything  that is happening to you now  is the results of your thinking.

  “Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”
 Thomas Jefferson


This is what Shiv khera said about negative people in his book You Can Win


  • are unhappy when they have no troubles to speak about
  • feel bad when they feel good, for fear they will feel worse when they feel better
  • spend most of their life at complaint counters
  • always turn out the lights to see how dark it is
  • are always looking for cracks in the mirror of life
  • stop sleeping in bed when they hear that more people die in bed than anywhere else
  • cannot enjoy their health because they think they may be sick tomorrow
  • not only expect the worst but make the worst of whatever happens
  • don’t see the doughnut, only the hole
  • believe that the sun shines only to cast shadows
  • forget their blessings and count their troubles
  • Know that hard work never hurts anyone but believe “why take a chance?”

This might look extreme,  believe me there are people who are exactly  like this.


One of the signs of a poverty mindset is blaming. There are  people who believe that they are never wrong. Everything that is happening to them is a result of something done by someone.

When you live with these kind of people you become a target.  When you do something it is wrong. You do not do it, it is still wrong.

Everything you say  is wrong even when you are quite they think there is something wrong with you.   They are the only people who do things right according to their negative mind. These people are very difficult to satisfy.

Everything that I have said above can be described in one word NEGATIVITY.

Being negative is poisonous it can rob you every dream that you have this is the reason why some people are poor while others are rich.

If you can study the behavior of all poor people you will understand what I am talking about . Have your ever heard this say;

Our thought become our actions, our actions become our habits and our habits become our character.”

How to Get Rid of This Poison

There is only one way of getting rid  of the poor person’s mindset and setting your self-free from poverty, being POSITIVE  Imagine becoming the entrepreneur you have always wanted to be.

 Find positive minded people

“Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. If the people around you are negative and you can’t change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.”
–Terry Orlick

 Look in your inner circle and start making some changes. You have heard the gospel and you need to hang out with people who will support you.

Positive minded people are people who believe in personal development. They believe that no one is responsible for their failure. They work hard to achieve their goals and do not believe in blaming other people for their problems.

  “Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results”. Willie Nelson

And lastly, believe in yourself

Believe that you can do everything. Say positive things to yourself and believe that you have already achieved them.

I always say this to my friends, repeat the word “I can” it works miracles.

Visualize your future and believe you can achieve it.
