The rich think differently from other classes of people, it’s in their attitude and habits. That is totally undeniable. You need to think like the rich to attract the right things into your life. And that is the world they live in. with the right mentality, you can manage and grow your finance but if you don’t, you find yourself struggling financially like lottery winners or people living paycheck to paycheck and go totally broke. No matter the amount won through lottery or gambling, lottery winners or gamblers don’t think like the rich and will never do until there’s an overhauling in thought.

Studying the life of the rich, you will realize that they have the same thinking pattern i.e. mentality. The thoughts they generate. Guard your mind, out of it cometh the things of your life. These people don’t follow the society way or live a life of mediocrity which is nothing but the truth. It’s because of this mentality that a few hold a high percentage of wealth in the world. Being rich is about having money and controlling it and not money controlling the person.

Its about unlearning and learning, practicing a new habit to enjoy your financial success. The ways the rich think differently from the poor is many but will focus on selected few.



                        11 WAYS THE RICH THINK

(1)       The rich people believe hardship causes evil

(2)       The rich focus on the right knowledge

(3)       The rich think big about the future.

(4)       The rich people surround themselves with the right people.

(5)       The rich think of investing than saving.

(6)       The rich take risks.

(7)       The rich think of money as friend.

(8)       The rich believe you make money through your thought and action.

(9)       The rich think of themselves and their values.

(10)    The rich think of managing their money well for their financial well-being.

(11)    The rich think of solving problems.





The rich believe hardship is truly the root of all evil and has caused the death of many people. When your life experience tough times, you end up perpetrating evil and end up blaming everything around you for the hardship in your life and you never take responsibility for your life. The rich believe when you have money it makes life less complicated, comfortable and fun to live.


The rich believe in the right knowledge that sets your path to wealth creation. They don’t truly believe that formal education is the way to wealth but getting the specific knowledge, you work on it to become mastery in what you do, and it generates wealth in the long run. Their education is goal- oriented with great result.


The rich believe so much in the future that they project and plan for it by setting goals with deadline to achieve them and how to go about it. they plan and prepare for what lies ahead. They work on their dreams and plan on making their ideas a reality by projecting for the future. They create financial plan of future financial crisis and plan for events to keep to their lifestyle.


The right set of people guide you on the right path. The rich do not need mediocrity and negative people around them but the right set of friends to help their goals and make their dreams a reality.

With the wrong set of people who are not goal-oriented, these people will alter their goals and poison them with toxic words because of their attitude so they stay clear of these people.


The rich know money has lost its value due to inflation and look for ways to avoid inflation destroying their money by investing their money than saving their money in the bank and getting paid a pittance interest. The wealthy think of what to do with their money to earn more money and not live a mediocrity life.


The rich know they cannot become rich by playing safe and being extremely too frugal, they prefer taking risk to earn more. No matter the risk if they lose they learn to plan to earn more. They take the risk to start and set-up the business than save, they prefer investing in that stock after acquiring the right knowledge than keep money in the bank to do nothing.


The rich think of money as friend to achieve their desired end and live a comfortable life and make life conducive for them. They look at it to achieve their financial independent and don’t have to worry about it and they can live the kind of lifestyle they want and buy things that makes them happy.


The rich spend time thinking of way to creating and make more money by taking down their ideas and taking actions towards their dreams and making it a reality. They believe in spending time to think, meditate, take down their ideas on note, create and innovate and take actions to get richer.


The rich promoted themselves through what they have to offer. They promote themselves through their ideas which they are passionate about and use it to connect with people who buy into their ideas. Being able to promote themselves through their product show their value and what they have to offer.




What makes the rich think differently is how they manage their money to become financially independent. They educate themselves on how to manage their money and what to invest in to make money work for them and grow their net worth. The rich control their money and don’t allow their money to control them by educating themselves on how to pay themselves first, invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate and many more.



The rich believing in solving problem to create wealth by looking for opportunities to do that. They master the act of solving problems and overcoming challenges to meet the needs of people. They are always solution oriented. They spend time to plan and strategize on how to resolve the obstacles and use it as an avenue to create wealth.

    The rich should learn to Seek ye first the kingdom of God, because in the end they will leave this world with nothing

  2. simplywendi says:

  3. CherishingFLo says:

    I can agree with a lot of these except a couple! But I think this was a great post!

  4. Edward says:

    Hummm makes alot of sense

    Hummm makes alot of sense

  6. valerie christie says:

    I agree with you on this post. The rich are not afraid to promote themselves and their points of view.

  7. amayszingblogs says:

    Nice article this is really indeed post! great job!

  8. Princess Quinn says:

    Thanks for sharing. But I think these are not just limited to rich people. Other classes share the same thought too. Only that, fate don’t turn on them to make them rich.

  9. Hannah Marie says:

    I wanna be rich someday. I think I should apply these thoughts in my life. Thank you!

  10. I’m not sure this is true of all rich people. It depends on the person.

  11. Super powerful ideas….

  12. a very interesting read!

  13. toastycritic says:

    They definitely think of solving a problem that will help other people, whatever that problem might be. It can be simple or complex but they have their mind there.

  14. itsahotmess04 says:

    I don’t necessarily think that all rich people think this way. I’m not saying some don’t, but I don’t believe it’s everyone. There are some less fortunate people who just assume this about the wealthier class as a way to vent their frustration.

  15. Liev Cruz says:

    I could agree on most of the stuff you said here. But most definitely because they have the guts to do and achieve more that’s why they become one.

  16. I’m not sure I’m on board with all your points here. I believe the rich are rich because of drive and luck.

    • If you are believe it’s luck, you can work towards yours and the drive should be what you are passionate about, meaning you need look for what you are passionate about and let it drive you. Thanks

  17. LAKATWOMAN says:

    I agree. It’s all about being aware. I find the truly rich people are those who serve and give.

  18. What an interesting post! Maybe this should be the way successful people think vs unsuccessful. I know plenty of wealthy and “well off” people who are immature, impulsive, and/or rude. Some people get lucky I guess. Also, there are plenty of the working class who have the best mindsets in the world, yet are still stuck there. Some people are just unlucky I guess. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Thanks for this insightful reply. If the best working class have the best mindset, they will not be building another person’s dream. They are being crippled by fear, limiting beliefs,doubt ,worry and many more.Thanks

  19. Nicole says:

    Makes sense and it’s interesting. I agree with some but there are some others that I don’t. I know some people who are very wealthy and others who are not. Both classes can fit into any of these. Thanks for the post, I thought it was interesting either way.

  20. Olga Zak says:

    Nice Article. It is very informative. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Flyingkids says:

    This is an interesting read. Great insights. Thanks for sharing these ideas. Very helpful.

  22. I am surrounded by “The Rich” on a daily basis working in a private school. But it may not be helpful for me to study them and the way they live because they were born into it.

  23. My husband and I are definitely not rich and it’s funny how we think about how it might be to be rich, but richness isn’t what makes a person happy. Although it helps! Ha ha!

  24. ninakasper says:

    Certainly some interesting points! While I am no where near money rich, I think I am rich in other areas and I am ok with that.

  25. What a fabulous blog. Very few have written about it.

  26. ninalehan21 says:

    you have touched on some interesting points in this post 🙂 i am happy with the current situation, i am not too rich or poor, just in the middle i guess haha

  27. I don’t necessarily agree with all of the points or feel that this only applies to the rich. I do agree with the assessments made by Lavanda Michelle. I think some of the points may align with “successful vs. unsuccessful” versus wealth.

    • Its not about what you think, its about do you have the thought pattern and action mentality of these people. Its also about leveraging and use OPM( other people’s money to achieve financial independence). Thanks

  28. Kiwi says:

    I like the idea that the rich think of money as their friends! I think it is powerful and a great law of attraction tool to bring more money to you!

  29. Brittany says:

    This is an interesting blog post. I like the
    rich take risks” and the rich solve problems. I’m always the one to try to not blame people for things but to always think of a solution or a way to make things more efficient!

  30. kristylee1978 says:

    I enjoyed this thoroughly. Lots of great info. Going to share as well!

  31. Debrah says:

    Excellent points you’ve made. And really, thinking like those things is not inherently bad. I think it’s what a rich guy is willing to do to get rich that is often the problem.

  32. Nkem says:

    I agree with the concept of the law of attraction, though some of these points seem like oversimplifications of the scarcity vs abundance mindset. Nonetheless, thanks for sharing this insight. There was something to gain here!
