    HI Cherrie, This was a great post on how rich people think differently. How the heck did you come up with all of them? I especially like #13. Average people teach their children how to survive. Rich people teach their kids to get rich! But then again #21 is meant for all of us, Yes we can have it all, it is up to you to choose. Thanks for sharing.. Chery 🙂

    That was interesting. Well. The mentality of rich people indeed differs from the life of an average human. But I don’t think that rich people can have these little happy moments life having something that you really wanted for some time.Their life goal is earning, who would like it? Earn to live and not the other way round.

    Interesting to know how the rich think, I wonder if the rest of us can change the way we think – or if we’re just locked in the mentality of the average person and because we can’t change, how we think, acquiring money alludes us.

    Hi Cherrie, What an eye opening post! It’s really interesting to see how rich people think and act. I never really did a comparison before so this post really made so much sense. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Cherrie,

    I love the way you did this. I remember a long time ago when I read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” and started thinking about the difference between how the average person things and the wealthy thinks.
    My oh my, seeing these quotes, and applying them can do wonders for our prosperity, well, those of us who are average!
    Thanks for posting this, all we have to do is switch our mindset and think as the wealthy do. It helps us become limitless.

    These are great ideas for starting points if we want to truly make a difference in our lives. I have known a number of people who were rich in monetary ways, but absolutely miserable in the other parts of their lives.

    And I have know lots of people who were equally as miserable.

    I am not sure money makes people happy (I know it doesn’t) but the idea that you can be in charge of your thoughts, think the way you want and bring about great changes in your life is a fabulous one.

    I think that is something this article makes clear – our power over our own lives. Thank you for sharing this with us, Cherrie.

    Great post! I love the comparison between how the poor and the rich think. It seems the poor have no goals and just live the dismal like they are in because they have no hope. The rich see opportunity, have faith, take action and rub shoulders with like minded people who they can collaborate with and come up with more innovative ideas on how to get richer…whether it be with money or life in general.

    I really love this article. Some mentalities of rich and average people is with me. I am not rich, I am not poor! I belong to the average people. All I do with my life is to learn to accept it and be contented with what I have. Thanks for sharing this. I really liked it!
