Dude, there's a difference between low-income, and "poor", it's called desire.

low-income people do have drive, and they do work hard. Thing is, they never gave up. They might have had a crisis and nearly gave up (as we all have at one time or another), but they chose to march on, and do their best.

Poor is purely a frame of mind. Key to making it in this world is hard, play hard, and keep your head straight. It's too easy to become complacent in this world...and complacency is the first step to that downward spiral.

Always try to learn something new everyday. Try to experience something new every week. And never, never say "I can't"...instead say "one day I will". It's not about how much money you make, it's about a person's outlook on life.

A person who looks at everything in a negative way, will always see bad. The thing is to see what is good in the bad, so you can improve on it. that takes at least a slightly positive outlook.
