  • I will be rich. 🙂

  • I had a long comment on this video written out, but realized that I started to digress as I began thinking of how judgmental the video actually is. I realize that it may not have been intended, but pointing out differences is not beneficial. Honestly, waking up early, or believing in God does not affect one’s finances.
    I have been in a catch 22 for almost a decade now, where any additional money I make (with my limited knowledge) will cause my current sources of income to suffer to a much greater degree. I know what I want to do, that could potentially be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but I don’t have the capital to start, know of nobody that would be willing to back me. Mostly because I don’t trust people, and I am too straight forward and don’t sugarcoat things, therefore I end up rubbing people the wrong way.

    • I wonder if you heard the beginning of the video, where the lady narrator says that these are THINGS THAT POOR PEOPLE DO WHICH GUARANTEE THEIR MEDIOCRITY. I’m a teacher; when I point out my students’ bad habits to them, it is ACTUALLY VERY BENEFICIAL because my aim is to help them achieve excellence. And when they listen to me, they do improve. I told one kid’s father that his son’s problem was that he didn’t do enough math problems. I signed the kid up on a math website and made him do THOUSANDS of math problems. His grade went from F to B+ in less than one year.

      The point is, if you change your bad habits, your life will become better. That’s not being “judgmental” (as in condemning); it’s giving a helping hand that enables you to become UPWARDLY MOBILE! 🙂

  • The last point, #16 is WRONG. To suggest that religious faith relates to less wealth shows a bias on the part of the peope who put this video together.
    People who are smart enough to gain wealth are also thoughtful enough to recognize that there is more to life than what we see in ther here and now.
    Look up some real Academic research on the topc. Go to Google Scholar and search under “correlation between religion and wealth”
    There is a ton of data available: bottom line, along with many things, religious faith is a substantial positive contributor to peoples wealth accumulation

  • RELIGION, item 16 in this video is absolutely wrong!
    The video suggests a personal bias of the Alux people who put this together. Item 16 it is totally opposite to academic research on the relationship between religion, entrepreneurship and wealth.
    Consider:
    1. Historian Nail Fergusson lists the Christian work ethic as one of his 6 killer apps of Western Civilization’s success. Is it really possible to have that work ethic without at least some belief in the religion underlying it?
    2. Go to Google scholar, type in the words “correlation between religion and wealth” and you will see that this is and old question, and the overwhelming result: religious affiliation and practice DOES have a positive relationship with wealth.
    3. It is often stated that scientists tend to be athiests. Again, academic research shows that those highly educated in science are essentially the same in their belief in god compared to the rest of the population.

    I wonder whether Alux would ever revisit something in which they made a glaring mistake. Rich people surely do learn from their mistakes, but I wonder whether Alux would ever admit to one.

    Suggestion: take a serious look at the relationship between religious faith and wealth.

  • I am gonna be super rich in 10 years as i perfectly planned.

  • “Thomas Hobbs” (pseudonym) might not have been paying attention at the beginning of the video, where the lady narrator says that these are THINGS THAT POOR PEOPLE DO WHICH GUARANTEE THEIR MEDIOCRITY. I’m a teacher; when I point out my students’ bad habits to them, it is ACTUALLY VERY BENEFICIAL because my aim is to help them achieve excellence. And when they listen to me, they do improve.

  • I want to get rich through hard work as a measure of how much I will have served society. No ill gotten wealth.

  • I am rich and plan to stay that way…
