How Rich People Think

-

Extrait de l’essai How Rich People Think de l’auteur Steve Siebold:

« Their personality styles vary: Some are introverts, some are extroverts. But their belief systems around money are the same. They all have a really positive relationship with money. They think about money in terms of freedom, as opposed to the negative relationship a lot of people have with money.

Most people think the rich got lucky. People think their money wasn’t earned by hard work and strategic, calculated thinking, which is not the truth for most people. There are crooks in every income category, but in my experience, there’s no more on the rich side than the poor side.

But it’s interesting how the self-made rich are a really hated group. They’re discriminated against, even in the wealthiest country of the world. I think it’s really sad. I think we should celebrate these people. There’s a tendency to demonize them, which I think is just crazy. »
