Why becoming poor may be the best thing for your future.. Being poor can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be devastating. Here are four easy steps you can take to ensure that you’ll be able to get back on your feet when life hits hard and your money supply becomes depleted. This advice will help you become poor in the best way possible, so that you’ll never have to worry about running out of money again.
Becoming poor will force you to be resourceful
If you are reading this and thinking, I want to become poor, that is a terrible idea. There are many reasons why becoming destitute would not be good for you. For example, it would make finding a job much more difficult because employers would see that you cannot provide for yourself or have financial stability. It would also make it harder to enjoy life because without money, most of the time you would have to miss out on social events or activities with friends or family members as well as luxuries like eating out and getting drinks with coworkers after work. You might even lose your house if you can’t afford rent anymore. However, what people don’t often realize is that there are benefits to being impoverished as well. Here are three reasons why someone should consider poverty before they think about being rich:
Being rich doesn’t guarantee happiness: Some studies show that people who live in affluent neighborhoods actually tend to be less happy than those who live in poorer areas. The problem with living an extravagant lifestyle is that people can never get enough of their favorite things which leads them to feel unfulfilled and frustrated at the end of each day.
Becoming poor will help you appreciate the little things in life
1) Being wealthy can make it difficult to see how others are feeling because you’re so busy focusing on yourself and what you want.
2) Becoming wealthy can cause people to lose sight of their values, morals and beliefs in pursuit of money and material objects.
3) By living simply, we are able to live more in the present moment, which is a key to finding happiness.
4) Research shows that stress levels go down when we have less debt and fewer material possessions – this is good for our mental health.
5) Studies show that owning more stuff doesn’t make us happier.
6) An abundance of wealth can make it difficult to trust others.
7) You’ll be able to focus on things like family, friends and spirituality rather than material goods.
Becoming poor will make you more humble
I don’t want to sound like a jerk, but I don’t know why people are so hung up on being rich. There’s nothing wrong with having money; it’s just that too many people think they need to stay wealthy in order to have any self-worth or happiness in life. I believe there is nothing more valuable than experience, and if you’re not humble now, then you might as well start getting used to it now because you will get older and will inevitably become poorer at some point in life. Experiences can shape who we are and give us a sense of purpose that cannot be achieved through materialistic things like money, cars or houses. For instance, when I was 24 years old, I had a car crash that almost killed me. Doctors didn’t think my legs would ever work again. For months afterwards I couldn’t even walk across my living room without feeling pain shooting down my back and into my legs. But those days were the most important days of my life: those were the days where I learned how to live with pain every day until eventually it went away–those were also the days where all my priorities changed–I started looking at what was really important to me in life instead of focusing on what society told me was important–and since that accident happened _ _ __ (something).
Becoming poor will teach you how to budget
1) Becoming financially stable isn’t about how much you make, it’s about how much you save. If you’re not careful and don’t track your spending, it can quickly spiral out of control until you find yourself in a place where you are unable to afford anything, but debt and basic needs.
2) The first step to living within your means is to track all of your income and expenses so that way you know where all of your money is going in a given month.
3) The second step is to do what’s called paying yourself first. This means taking away some percentage of each paycheck before paying any bills or other obligations so that way there will be something left over at the end of the month for savings or emergencies. It might sound like common sense, but most people live paycheck to paycheck because they haven’t planned ahead.
4) The third step is to pay attention to exactly how much things cost in order to understand what it takes in order to live comfortably on your budget. For example, if you have a monthly food budget of $400 per month then each week plan meals around what’s on sale and cook enough extra meals that way you have leftovers which can go into lunchboxes or later meals during the week. You’ll also want to get rid of grocery items that are nearing their expiration date rather than just letting them sit there which ends up wasting more than half of your food budget every year!
Becoming poor will give you a new perspective on life
The main point of this post is to say that once you become poor, you will realize that there is nothing more important than family and friends in life. It may sound cliché, but it’s true. You’ll learn what really matters in life when you go through hard times and have to make tough decisions about who can help you out and who can’t; not to mention the fact that people don’t judge as much when they see you at the grocery store buying food with a SNAP card or walking around with a big water jug because they know how it feels to struggle on a daily basis just like yourself. Becoming poor will change your perspective on life in so many ways, but most importantly, it teaches us what really matters in life – our loved ones
So, to summarize:
1) Staying poor will make you more appreciative of what you have, which will allow you to enjoy life more.
2) Being poor is empowering and allows you to break out of limiting beliefs.
3) There is less opportunity for temptation when you’re not in a place where money is readily available;
4) You’ll have more time to focus on things that bring joy into your life.
5) The ability to save money will increase as well, so you can have some financial freedom if or when desired.
6) It’s easier to get ahead financially when you don’t already owe money or have debt.
7) We’re conditioned from childhood by society to believe that we need things like fancy clothes or cars, but this isn’t true–so why not do something different?
8) When people are wealthy, they often live longer lives because they are able to afford better health care, but this doesn’t mean it’s the only way to live a long life–you could also just live a healthy lifestyle without all of these costly medications and treatments.
9) The rich, who are exempt from want, still find an abundance inadequate. -Henry David Thoreau
10) They want everything right now instead of being patient and waiting for good things to come to them.
11) When someone starts at poverty levels they have much higher chances of moving up in the world than those who start off rich–being born with privilege puts you at an automatic disadvantage.
12) Yes, there will be struggles, but these struggles help us grow stronger and better humans.
13) We forget about gratitude until we lose everything and then there’s no one else left to blame except ourselves.
