For most people, becoming rich is their ultimate dream as having a significant amount of wealth opens up numerous opportunities in life. If you’re rich, you can drive whatever car you want, travel to any part of the world and you never have to take orders from a boss again. However, becoming rich isn’t easy which is why just a small number of people ever accumulate enough money to live this dream lifestyle. In fact, to become rich, certain things are expected of us.

Certain lifestyle and daily habits. A certain mindset and certain associations as well. People who never become rich fail in their pursuit for financial freedom because they do not understand the principles that underlie the accumulation of money. Hence, they constantly find themselves doing the wrong things over and over. Remember, our habits form and dictate the outcome of our lives.

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.” This means that if you become rich, it is because of the things you do consistently. If you are unsuccessful, likewise, it is because of something(s) that you do repeatedly as well. Mortimer J. Adler, an American philosopher, educator, and popular author, said that “Habits are formed by the repetition of particular acts. They are strengthened by an increase in the number of repeated acts. Habits are also weakened or broken, and contrary habits are formed by the repetition of contrary acts.” Talking about people who will never be rich, what habits do they constantly repeat or how do we identify people who will never be successful in life? Now, let me share with you the 5 types of people who will never be rich!

Type #1: People who are scared of failure

Failure is an outcome, not an end product. People who do not realize this fact will always be scared of failure. Hence, they’ll never break out of their comfort zones to try new things. Winston Churchill once said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal it is the courage to continue that counts.” Poor people see failure as an excuse not to try new experiences even if they think that this experience may lead to a life of financial bliss. They will say that’s it’s too risky, that no one’s ever done it…
