WHY DO THE RICH KEEP GETTING RICHER AND THE POOR GETTING POORER?
This week’s article is about the simple things that almost anybody can do. It is about the simple things that anyone can do to transform the problems around them to money, opportunities, jobs etc.
Finding your financial freedom is pretty easy, especially when you live in an environment with all sorts of problems. But most people would rather do things the hard way. Many will work hard all their lives living below their means, work hard for the rich and get entangled in the rat race and do what everyone else is doing rather than focus on coming up with solutions to problems.
The irony is that everyone is looking for money but they are running away from problems. How can you be looking for money and you are running away from problems? I mean, look at Africa and other developing countries around the world. Most people are running away from developing countries. Most people are running away from what they call poor countries. They are running away from countries they perceive to have too many problems. But in the real sense, those countries where people are poor, where there are so many problems, there lies the richest goldmines.
Unfortunately, we are in a dispensation where problems have been defined incorrectly for us, and this calls for an urgent attention if we are to move forward. Problems are not bad. They are there for us. And I’m here to address the wrong mindset about problems. I’m here to address the notion that problems are bad. This week’s article is here to tell you that the only reason why problems exist is for you and me. I am here to tell you that where there is a problem, there is money and financial prosperity.
Quite a good number of people are desperate for money. Everybody is looking for money, but they are looking for money through jobs alone. They have forgotten or they don’t even know that the problems around them are goldmines that could yield a lot of money.
Problems are part of everyone’s life. They sometimes seem to flood our lives without letting up, and we wonder if they will ever stop.
Because we cannot prevent bad situations from coming into life, it is imperative that we learn how to transform them into positive situations—turn life’s lemons into lemonade. By employing the strategies of success at all times, we capitalize on the good and transform problems into something we can work with. Problems always have great opportunities hidden within them.
Have you ever wondered why the rich keep getting richer and the poor getting poorer especially during the times of crisis? Why is it that when there are a lot of problems and most people are suffering, some others are smiling to the bank? It seems as if you and I live in a world where problems seem to favor a few individuals and put most others down on their backs.
Take a look at these statistics from the Sunday Times Rich List and pay close attention to the period of time this wealth was acquired. According to the 2015 Sunday Times Rich List, Britain’s billionaires have seen their net worth more than double since the recession, with the richest 1,000 families now controlling a total of £547 billion. Their assets have increased from £258 billion in 2009, a rise of more than 112%.
While average UK income earners have yet to recover from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, with thousands still flocking to food banks, the financial elite has emerged not only with their fortunes intact but holding a larger than ever slice of the cake.
The past 12 months saw the biggest bounce for the United Kingdom super-rich in six years, and London now has 80 billionaires, up from 72 last year – more than any other world city.
Oh! Doesn’t it seem to go in the opposite direction of what you’ve always known or believe? Is recession not meant to affect everyone in the economy, both rich and the poor? Is that not the logical thing that should happen?
Then, why would a few individuals get richer when the economists and the entire specialists in the financial world said the economy is in a recession? Maybe the rich have a special machine that makes money for them in their rooms? But that would be illegal.
The richest 1,000 families have more money than the poorest 40% of British households combined, according to the Equality Trust. Last year they saw their wealth increase by £28 billion, the equivalent of £77m a day.
You mean £77m a day? In a time of crisis? You mean some individuals could make so much even when there is no money in the economy? This got me thinking as well, so you are not alone.
If some individuals could make a whooping £77m a day, there must be something they are doing right. If the time of recession is connected to increasing wealth and asset base of some individuals, there must be a correlation between problems and money. And if it comes during the time when there are a lot of problems, it should tell you something that there is a secret. That’s the secret I’m about to reveal to you.
To be continued Tomorrow, don’t miss it.
