|You Will Remain Poor Forever If You Continue Doing These 8 Things by martinmiller: 8:19pm On Apr 30, 2020|
Character they say is the beauty of a woman and money is the beauty of a man that's why every man desires success and a luxurious lifestyle.
Moreover, few are willing to go through the right part of success in order to achieve it. There are certain things men do in their daily life activities that hinders their opportunity to success. They may see it as a way out of poverty, but woefully, it's the gateway to the throne of poverty.
There are many habits that can keep a man in the circle of poverty. Check them out below.
There is no such thing as getting rich quick. Financial success takes time, takes initiative, and requires relentless effort to achieve.
People who engage in gambling are deluded into thinking there is a shortcut to success. A lot of self-made millionaires today didn’t pursue any get-rich quick schemes. Instead, they make a habit of pursuing their dreams and their goals one after the other.
A lot of Nigerian youths believe so much in gambling that they made it a job. They have the believe that a single one hundred naira note can fetch them fifteen million naira. How long do intend on spending before you achieve that goal. Every known successful man today never earned their wealth from gambling.
2. Drinking Too Much Alcohol.
While the occasional glass of wine or beer is fine, drinking too much could reduce your chances to financial success. Do you know drinking too much could affect your memory and ability to think clearly ?. If you can't think and remember things clearly, how do you intend to make a plan for your financial freedom ?.
I'm not saying alcohol is evil but there is a limit to everything in life including the same alcohol. Some men believe it's never okay till they feel drunk. Only a poor man with a poor mentality thinks like that. 1-2 bottles of beer or even 2 glasses of wine is very much okay for a man with a goal in life. It doesn't mean you have to start drinking two glasses everyday. There are times when things are required in life. Say no to excessive intake of alcohol for your financial freedom.
3. Your Type Of Friends.
A wise man once said, Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are. Those words are absolutely true. Who you hang out with matters more than you may think.
Many rich people today changed their friends the day they decided to make wealth. Make a habit of associating with other success-minded individuals like you.
If you sorround yourself with drunkards and smokers, even if you don't drink or smoke, definitely one day you will see yourself doing it.
You are only going to succeed in life if you surround yourself with the right type of people.
4. Spending Too Much Time Infront Of The TV.
In a success study, it is revealed that 80% of poor people today spend more than five hours Infront of their television screen daily. Complete precious five hours.
Have you ever wondered why the most expensive cars and properties are not putting their advertisements on TV ?. The answer is simple, the people who buy and patronise it doesn't spend time on television so probably they can't see it.
The rich or success-minded people would rather be educated than entertained. They replace TV time with reading, thinking, exercising, or any other form of self education.
I'm not saying watching TV is something not important, but spending too much time on it. Spend more time in planning your map to success instead of watching people who followed their path to success.
5. Thinking Negatively.
Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook to it. You can never be successful if you always imagine yourself poor. If you don't believe in yourself, why trying ?. You always have the thoughts of I cannot make it, that's one of the reasons you have not made it to success.
The problem for most people is that they’re completely unaware of their thoughts, positive or negative. If you stop to listen to your thoughts, to be aware of them, you would find most of them are negative. But you only realize you are having these negative thoughts when you force yourself to be aware of them. Awareness is the key.
Take your mind of negative thoughts. Replace them with positiveness. They say a believer is an achiever. Believe in yourself.
6. Doing A Job You Don't Love.
Toiling away at a job you hate will not only leave you stressed out and dissatisfied with life, it could affect your chances at getting rich because you don't appreciate the outcome.
The wealthiest, most successful people pursue their passions, you should consider doing the same thing in your working days in life. Do what you have passion for, work is fun. Passion defeats education, intelligence, skills, and any other advantage those who lack passion might have in life.
Passion makes work fun. Passion gives you the energy, persistence, and focus needed to overcome failures, mistakes, and rejection. It infuses you with a fanatical tenacity that makes it possible to overcome obstacles and pitfalls that block your path.
7. Spending too much.
Spending more than you make is the fastest and surest road to financial breakdown.
You can't be earning a salary of 50 thousand naira and be driving a car that requires maintenance of 15 thousand naira monthly, it leaves you with 35 thousand naira salary. You have groceries and rent to pay the same month with other little things to do with money. What happened to saving ?, What you save and plan for is very important even before the salary comes.
People who spend too much faces a lot of challenges, they have no money for retirement, for their kids’ college, or for pursuing opportunities that present themselves. Spending more than you earn and putting saving on your back creates long-term poverty, with no hope of escape.
8. Ignoring customers feedback.
At the end of the day, you might already have a business established, ignoring customers feedback on your products and services pulls your business down faster than the change in currency.
Fear of criticism is the reason we do not seek feedback from others. You have more chances of improvement if you listen to your customers feedback.
Feedback is essential to learning what is working and what isn’t working. Feedback helps you understand if you are on the right track. Seeking criticism, good or bad, is a crucial element for learning and growth.
Feedback provides you with the information you will need in order to succeed in future and make improvements.
That will be all for now. I hope this helped and educated you on some of the things you need to stop doing in life if you want to achieve success.
See you at the top !

Good read, especially gambling and alcohol.. if you must drink, only drink at evening or sundays, because alcohol seriously affect decission making and can slowly spell your doom if not watched
Succesfull men start their day with coffee , or cafein based stimulant, the elders use Kola nut, bitter kola which are also a stimulant, alcohol is a depresant and consuming a depresant in the morning when you need your brain working faster would ultimately ruin you
PS: Gambling and relying on luck(like rolling a dice, staking on virtual cartoons and unrealistic games), is totally different from people who stake after working their permutation and have a formulae to give near accurate prediction, Forex, Stockbroking and High Commodity trading all rely heavily on ability to stake at the right time and exit the market and close trade and a reasonable time (betting) and people often mix the two together
Functional Alcoholics like Governor Wike and Gov Obiano or President Goodluck Jonathan and Gen Abacha musicians like Davido shouldn't be compared to everyone who drinks.. functional alcoholics are not common and should never be copied

A nigga once said: Well i do not agree with your "6". So many people do jobs they don't like just because they are looking for capital to start their own buisness..

A good thread.
To make the points more compact, I will add that for success, you should know: success never comes through material wealth, but can be achieved through it. Success is that thing that gives you fulfilment and happiness.
To never remain poor, you should know that: wealth follows value. If you will be wealthy then you have to help society get something it needs at scale and you will be rewarded bountifully.

I wanted to contradict you earlier, cos the smartphone through the internet is the only safe community some people have. However, anyone who desires a sound and healthy mind will see reasons to take a break from internet.
The best of the best minds are being hired from all over the world to keep us addicted to the tools created by the big techs. Because it is profits first for all the big tech companies. Imagine like you have scientists with their white overall in labs developing drugs or vaccines same way you have people working day and night to make you more addicted to your samrtphone. They only just wear t-shirt and kicks. Your dopamine is being nudged everyday to keep you addicted to FB, Twtr, IG, etc,. You want to take occasional breaks or do intermittent fast to regain mental consciousness and reflect on your life once in a while.

9.) Keeping multiple girlfriends when you have not fully stabilised financially.
10.) Dating an entitled lady who believes in spending your money without helping you grow financially
11.) Dating a broke lady who believes it is men's responsibility to take care of a woman's needs from panties to bra.
12.) Relying fully on your job and refusing to start a side hustle, especially if you live in an unstable economy like Nigeria

we can only encourage some of us to stop taking alcohol in excess, we can't ask anyone to stop it by force, however, life is a choice.
