  • 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! 🙂
