10 things to avoid if you don't
want to be a pauper for life.

The popular saying that you are the
architect of your fortune and misfortune
still remain relevant till the earth wanes,
as you can choose to be rich or poor. Also,
the last two lines of stanza four of invictus
of William Ernest Henley,
“I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my
points to man’s ‘self will’ to make him/her
whatever he so desire.
In Nigeria, there use to be three
scales of socioeconomic in the social arena,
the high class (the wealthiest/aristocrat),
the middle class (the rich people) and the
low class (the poor) but in today’s settings,
only two social economic classes prevails
and they are the rich and the poor which I
label the first class and the second class
people. The gauge and parameter to
measure levels between the classes remain
issue of another time. In a socio economic
class, one member can only be better than
the other, they are still in the same
category and remain a class, analogy is
that of a person who can only afford a
single meal for himself, his wife and single
child in a day and another who is single
and can also only incur for himself two
meal in a day, they both fall into the poor
domain as they are both poor. Likewise in
the rich category we have the rich, richer
and the richest who all subsist within the
first social class.
Been a parvenu is always a thing of
joy to the new entrant of the higher social
class, but this does not always last for so
many as they were not ready for the class
which they meet themselves and not well
established if at all for the class. Examples
of these parvenus are internet fraudsters
who eventually make it after several
period of trying and gamblers who hit it
heavily after so many failures. It is always
easier for a camel to enter through the eye
of a needle than for a parvenu to maintain
the huge proceeds from the art of sudden
riches. After a period of time, the
fraudster, the jackpot winner, a
tournament winner, a lotto winner, a
draw winner, the gambler who suddenly
got their riches without preparation for it
often run bankrupt, live their lives in debt
and thereby declared insolvent for the rest
of their lives because a blue print was not
drawn before the great hit.
It is highly pertinent that majority
if not all including the youths and old,
male and female suffer from what I refer to
as ‘Get Money Quick or Sudden
syndrome’ (GMQS), reason people fall
victims of different con artists scam such
as the popular “penny-wise of 2007” and
likewise the “MMM of 2016/2017” that is
still fresh in the memory of us all and
which was followed by many semblance
schemes. Those that benefitted from the
schemes at their primal facie cannot
presently beat their chest to still own up to
fifty percent of the benefits in their bank
account and it is not obvious that people
learn their lessons from all the occurrence,
for if another scam scheme is woven by
swindlers to dwindle people of their hard
earn money, people will still fall victims.
Let me buttress it in Niccolo
Machiavelli (1469-1527) words that men
are so simple of mind, and so much
dominated by their immediate needs, that a
deceitful man will always find plenty who
are ready to be deceived. And with the
above insinuation, people continue living
life in abject poverty, deep penury, and
extremely poor condition which in my
own idea is ‘self made’.
And apart from the ‘self made’
pauper act, here are the ten reasons why
you may not be rich...
