This Is The Number One Reason You Are Still Broke by Bagboii: 6:05am On Jan 04, 2020
It was a decision you took to open this thread out of numerous threads.. Decisions can either lead you into a lifetime of happiness or regrets..

You can never get rich in life through making POOR DECISIONS. Staying broke is a reflection of your POOR DECISIONS .Becoming rich is a reflection of your RICH DECISIONS..

You graduated with one of the best grades but still no job yet after a long while and u keep on saying that, u want to work in a well paying company or nothing else, That is is a POOR DECISION. Why don't u think of how to source for capital and invest it in an idea that can give u a source of income while still aiming for that job. That is a RICH DECISION

Because u are a graduate and you have a Nysc certificate, Then u start feeling like some menial jobs, are not meant to be done by u, even if it could be a steady source of income for u ? That is a POOR DECISION .

You are born and raised in a poor home and u keep telling yourself that if your parents were wealthy, you would have had a better life.. That is a POOR DECISION instead tell yourself this, I grew up in a poor home but my own children must not grow up in a poor home. That is a RICH DECISION.

Your parents are finding it hard to send u to school and even to feed u as their child is hard for them and u are silently asking yourself why God decided to put u in that family, That is a POOR DECISION Instead tell yourself this, GOD put me in this family so that i can change the story of my parents for good, That is a RICH DECISION.

In Summary.. your mind is the engine, The decisions u make is the fuel that would either power the engine through the destination to a Life u dream of..

Please here is an illustration below and please using Lagos and Akwaibom is just an illustration not that I mean u re in Lagos going to Akwa Ibom :

You are in Lagos YOUR PRESENT SITUATION) and your destination is Akwa Ibom (THE LUXURY KIND OF LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE) ,Ur Life is the Car, Your mind is the engine, your decisions is the fuel that would power the engine which is your life to your destination. if u buy just 2 litres of fuel (POOR DECISIONS) It can never take your car (YOUR LIFE) to reach your destination Akwa Ibom (THE LUXURY KIND OF LIFE U WANT TO LIVE)

Yes that's it, you are on point. The mindset is majorly for one purpose and it is for the purpose of decision making.. and decisions we make its a reflection of our upbringing and environment find ourselves..

1. Where the rich see opportunity, the poor see problems.

2. Where the rich invest, the poor spend.

3. The rich want to be impressed, the poor try to impress.

4. The rich read and are aware of global trend and affairs, the poor do not read and is cognitively limited.

5. The rich buy appreciating assets (properties, business, stocks), the poor buy depreciating assets (newest iPhones, designer clothes)

6. Where the rich invest in themselves through coaching, classes, the poor invest in their ego through material stuff to feel better

7. The rich pay themselves before spending, the poor spend before paying themselves

8. The rich weaponize their body with healthy foods and exercise, the poor eat and drink irresponsibly regardless of the effect on the body

9. The rich think of expanding, entering and breaking into new market, the poor is comfortable and satisfied with his merger state. (Think of uber, or domino pizza without thousands of operations in cities worldwide).

10. The rich think and plan ahead, update himself with technology automate and willing to change, the poor don't even think of such in the first place.

11. The rich employs you, you work for the rich.

12. The rich are responsible, accept failures, and are in full control of their life and circumstsnces. They choose what happen in their life. The poor just let life happens to them.

13. The rich see money as a tool, their money works for them. The poor see money as a goal, they work for the money.

14. The rich has cash producing assets (eg factories), the poor are the factory workers themselves.

15. The rich are adaptable and formless, the poor are stiff and get irrelevant with time.

I am not broke,but a lot of Nigeria youths are broke because opportunity abounds less in this nation, the value of human labor is so poor, the recompense for labor is so competitive, that people take home can barely take them anywhere, a lot of ideas but no support system to help the youths, I have a brother who stayed broke in naija for years,but immediately he migrated to a caring and sane society like Australia, he is constantly boxed up and has alot of investment here to shoe for it, a society that enforces equality promotes labor rights,have a well structured wage pattern and income level, where millions are not poor at the expense of a few corrupt individuals, where the govermnent puts the interst of its people first genuinely,where you don't need to work as an elephant and eat as a ant, except for just a few privileged ones in this country, most people are broke due to reasons beyond immediate control, but last last just keep hustling, you might be lucky,and get a big break

cool



No lies... Most Graduates should think of using their idea and knowledge to create job and not just wait for people with ideas to employ them

The solution to not being broke is to have a skill, services or product and have a very good marketing plan Including radio jingle, newspaper advert, posters and Social media that can get you out there

As a Computer Scientist, advertise your programing skills to people online and ofline, people need softwares, app and websites, offices need a tech guy to call and sort networking issues you just have to advertise

As a Mass Comm graduate start a blog and a news website, create a social media page or simply continue making thread on Nairaland putting your contacts

As Philosopher, write a book on a percuilar subject you have researched about Nigeria, religion , culture or tradition using what skills you have learnt

As an Accountant advertise your services online and ofline to small businesses needing book keeping solution and audit for tax clearance and loan aplication, you can also meet a programmer for you to write an accounting app or website that offer accounting solution

As an Agronomist, Fishery or Agriculture Graduate... study Fish Farming, study crop planting and write a very powerfull business plan, after that start marketing yourself for people to consult you in setting up a farm

Animal Scientist and Vet Graduate should advertise around farms , ranches poultry for consultancy ETC and start breeding Dogs for sale


Above all have a trade skill as back up, you can get that from learning through many free platforms from churches and government

Plan with capital is zero. Capital with no plan is zero you will still eat the money.
Have a plan
Pray
Prepare
Know where you are going and where you want to stop
When capital comes it will work like magic

Opportunity meet prepared minds settles success. The opposite is failure
