10 Ways To Remain Poor by BedLam: 1:08pm On Mar 10, 2013
HOW TO REMAIN POOR..

1. Never wake up early...

Keep stretching & 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 or home based production?? That's for people who never went to school.

5} Don't think of starting a business until an angel comes from heaven & give U capital..

How do
they expect U to invest before U get millions of dollars?? Even though more than half the
businesses in your town were started with a few hundred dollar, you as a smart person can only
start with millons.

6} Complain about everything expect your own attitude:

Blame the system the government & the
banks that refuse to lend you money. They are all bad & do not want you to get rich.

7. Spend more than you earn.

To achieve this, buy consumer product on credit & keep borrowing
from friends & employers.

8. Compete in dressing.

Make sure wear the latest clothes among all workers in your offer..
Whenever your neighbour buys a new phone, u get one that is more expensive..

9. Get yourself a nice second hand car that costs more than three times your gross monthly pay..

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 &
hence poor enough to ensure they can't help you in old age...

Good post.
I love No 6 particularly. I noticed that critics hardly create anything but criticism: blame the system, blame your parents, blame everything and everyone but yourself. To be broke is temporary but being poor is an attitude.

No 3 is the most important to me, I never understood it till it hit me. Until about 4years ago, I never new what saving was, so I decided to enroll in a saving program with my employer, and with 401k, they contributed 5%. I selected the aggressive option, last week, reluctantly, I looked into my account, hmm, the way I shouted, I could not believe the amount I was seeing.

I just could not come to term that the few hundreds being set aside monthly and contribution was having a sincere impact. Man, after I saw that, that was when I knew the power of SAVING.

This is a very wonderful post, and i am glad it has been moved to the front page, without Tonto Dikeh's picture in it.
Youths in Nigeria need to wake up and take their destinies in their hands and stop blaming every other person for their misfortune.

From Your English, I Will Never Doubt That You Came From "dat root" As You Claimed.
All The Same, Congrats For Making It "To The Top" With Your Family As You Also Claim! grin grin grin
Re: 10 Ways To Remain Poor by alphaconde(m): 3:55pm On Mar 10, 2013
1.Continue to give to your pastors when they can't actually tell u what u r getting in return.
2. Keep a woman who's materialistic
3. When u think there are some jobs u are bigger than even when u know you can improve ur life with it.
4. Lastly think u can do everything on ur own without remembering there's God
My four points

You missed the point, he was only saying you will remain poor if you continue waiting on big box to start a business. This is why I'm rethinking my strategy, I'm using my savings as a collateral to start up soon enough. Waiting on the day I win mega million may not come undecided so why not start from somewhere

Wealth has principles,if you know God and you are swimming against the tide of wealth you will still remain poor.
