Start with Their Habits
Results from an interesting “study” (almost more of a survey) out today from Thomas Corley, author of Rich Habits – the Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals, should be a required study project for all middle school students. In an age where glitz is glorified and bling is beautiful, Corley’s reality check is refreshing.
I work with many individuals from low-income households, in addition to working with professionals who serve similar communities, so I am better aware than most of the challenges faced those facing poverty, especially those in generational poverty. The frustrations I hear expressed by individuals in such circumstances can be heart breaking, which in turn motivates me to do what I do.
At the same time, when I hear individuals from all socio-economic levels express their hopes to be rich, to drive fancy cars, own mansions, never have to work again, etc., I get frustrated. It is clear that we need to take advantage of every opportunity possible to combat the notion that living a pampered life is what the wealthy do, that they’ve inherited their wealth, and that they don’t need to work.
