What’s the main difference between the rich and the poor?
You might say that the rich have lots of money while poor people don’t. Although that’s usually the case, I believe it’s not the main reason why some people are rich while some people are poor.
Do you want to know what I think? Well, I believe that the main difference between the rich and the poor is how much they spend. Or simply, the fact that the rich spends less than what they earn, while the poor spends more.
So if you want to be rich, then first – live within your means. As famous Scottish novelist and poet, Robert Louis Stevenson, once said:
“Earn a little, spend a little less.”
Follow this advice and you’ll always have enough.
