RICH VERSUS POOR AND THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH! WOW!

“TOO BUSY TO LIVE, TOO DUMB TO SAVE, TAKE ALL FOOLS TO AN EARLY EMPTY GRAVE!” RAL

THE RICH ARE EVIL, THE POOR ARE LAZY, AND THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE WORLD! WOW!

I’VE BEEN “DIRT POOR” AND I’VE HAD PLENTY. TRUST ME, “HAVING PLENTY BEATS POOR” HANDS DOWN ANYTIME!

IMPORTANT FACT: “HAVING PLENTY” IS NOT DEFINED AS “BEING RICH”………….JUST SO YOU KNOW.!

WHEN I WAS YOUNG, I THOUGHT “THE RICH” WERE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PEOPLE! AND THEY ARE! THEY HAVE MORE MONEY! WHICH ONES ARE HAPPIER? WELL, THE RICH MUST BE BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE MONEY!

THE RICH MUST BE EVIL! WHY? BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE MONEY? AND THEY MUST BE HAPPY BECAUSE THEY CAN BUY EVERYTHING THEY WANT! CARS, BOATS, GRAND HOUSES, FRIENDS, FAMILY, SUCCESS, WHATEVER MONEY CAN BUY!

“CAN’T BUY ME LOVE!”   YEAH……………SEE THAT DIAMOND RING ….MY FRIEND!  DA DA DA DA DA DA!

SO IF YOU HAVE MONEY AND YOU CAN BUY ANYTHING YOU WANT…………..NOW GO OUT AND BUY YOU SOME “HAPPY” AND GRAB SOME “HEALTH” WHILE YOU’RE AT IT! WHAT!? CAN’T BUY THOSE TWO WITH MONEY?  BUMMER!

IDEAS LIKE THOSE ABOVE FLOAT AROUND IN OUR HEADS!

MANY TIMES PEOPLE THAT HAVE MONEY ARE LABELED AS BEING EVIL……..WELL, THEY MUST BE IF THEY HAVE MONEY! AT LEAST THEY MUST BE DISHONEST OR EVERYBODY WOULD HAVE PLENTY MONEY AND EVERYBODY WOULD BE HAPPY!

COLD HARD FACTS:  1. SOME RICH PEOPLE INHERIT THERE MONIES! WHETHER THEY KEEP THEM OR NOT DEPENDS ON WHAT THEY DO WITH THEM! IF THEY SAVE AND WORK TO MAKE MORE MONEY, MANY YEARS LATER THEY WILL PROBABLY HAVE EVEN MORE THAN THEY DID BEFORE.

2. OTHER PEOPLE MAKE THEIR MONEY BY EDUCATION, HARD WORK AND THE DESIRE AND DETERMINATION THAT THEY CAN HAVE MONEY IF THE WANT IT AND WORK HARD FOR IT!

3. IT WAS REPORTED LATELY THAT THE RICHEST 1% OF THE PEOPLE ARE GETTING EVEN RICHER THAN EVER AND THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASSES ARE GETTING POORER!

4. #3 ABOVE IS BECAUSE WHEN TIMES GET ROUGH THE PEOPLE WITH MONEY DON’T HAVE TO LOSE THEIR HOUSES, CARS, ETC. WHEN TIMES GET HARD……THEY JUST SIT TIGHT AND BUY UP ALL OF THE THINGS THE POOR AND MIDDLES CLASSES HAVE TO SELL AT “STEAL PRICES”  JUST TO HAVE ENOUGHT TO EAT WHEN THE TIMES GET BAD!

READ THE STORY IN THE BIBLE OF JOSEPH AND THE GRAIN IN EGYPT……LESSONS HAVE BEEN AVAILALBE “FOREVER”!

AND YES! IT IS JUST THAT SIMPLE!

5. THE RICH CREATE JOBS! THEY GIVE TO CHARITIES! THEY SAVE CHURCHES, BUILDINGS, ETC FROM BEING TORN DOWN, THEY GIVE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR COLLEGES………..WHY BECAUSE THEY CAN AND IT MAKES THEM HAPPY!

REMEMBER THAT WORD, HAPPY!

THE RICH CONSERVE THEIR WEALTH…………….THEY HAVE LONG RANGE PLANS……………EXAMPLE: THE AUGUSTA NATIONAL GOLF ASSOCIATION MUST HAVE A LONG RANGE PLAN: BUYING UP PROPERTY AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE, KNOWING THAT IT MAY BE 50 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD BEFORE SOME PROPERTIES BECOME AVAILABLE……….BUT THEY CAN WAIT!  THEIR CHILDREN WILL COME ALONG AND THEY CAN BUY WHEN THE PRICE IS THE LOWEST AND TO THEIR GREATEST ADVANTAGE!

REMEMBER THAT WORD, SMART!

6. THE POOR DON’T SEEM TO HAVE A PLAN………THEY SPEND EVERY DIME THEY GET.  THEY DON’T THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE………..IT’S DAY BY DAY!

THEY SPEND WHAT THEY DON’T HAVE…………….NEVER ACCUMMULATING ANY SURPLUS. SO WHEN BAD TIMES COME AROUND, THEY LOSE THEIR HOMES, CARS, ETC. TO THE RICH WHO HAVE SAVED THEIR MONEY AND ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO BUY UP THOSE WONDERFUL BARGAINS!

AT THIS POINT YOU PROBABLY ARE SAYING TO YOURSELF…………WOW WHAT A MESS OF UNJOINTED JIBBERISH!

AND FOR SOME OF YOU, THAT MAY JUST BE THE RIGHT CONCLUSION……………..BUT FOR YOU OUT THERE THAT DO GET IT:

WAKE UP! MONEY CAN’T BUY YOU LOVE AND IT CAN’T BUY YOU HEALTH BUT IT CAN MAKE YOU A LOT MORE COMFORTABLE  WHILE YOU ARE WORKING TOWARD BOTH OF THEM!

I COULD GO ON A BIT………………AND SO I WILL!

LIFE IS A SERIES OF CHOICES! WE MUST LIVE WITH THE RESULTS OF THE CHOICES WE MAKE!

REMEMBERING THAT NOTHING IS FREE…………………DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT…………DEFINE IT IN DETAIL………..BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN GET IT…………AND GET OUT THERE AND GO FOR IT! NOBODY IS GOING TO JUST HAND IT TO YOU! YOU MUST CREATE YOUR OWN LUCK AND DO YOUR OWN WORK TO GET IT! BUT GET IT YOU CAN!

THE LAW OF ATTRACTON WORKS AND “PAYING IT FORWARD” GREASES THE WHEEL!

AND ALL THE WHILE, GOD IS SMILING AND SAYING, “I TOLD YOU SO!”

HEALTHY, HAPPY, WEALTHY AND WISE………..GO FOR IT!  WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE? YEP, YOU KNOW!
