Negative or positive minds don't matter. What about a single woman who has to take care of 4 kids? She can't go back to school because she needs a job to keep her house and feed her kids. Unfortunately she is not as lucky as a guy born with rich parents. Mindsets matter, but you must also take into consideration on the funds they have. It takes one good idea to make money or money to make money. You can be the most negative guy and win the lotto. The laws of attraction do not work. It is up to you and your resources to make the money.

its not just about making money, first off..its about mastering it. Seeing how it works and learning. So what if your negative and when the lotto...the average american could spend that in 2.5 seconds and never even think about investing it. Rich does not mean wealthy.
Its not about luck its about a positive mindset. Neither do funds. Ideas are what matter. Creativity is what matters. A team of professionals is what matters. Due Diligence is what matters.
one can easily play armchair quarter back and think they know how it all works, but you don't know what you don't know.
The biggest myth is that you need money to make money...you really don't, but you have been subtly programmed to think you do.
All I know that its possible for anyone with the perseverance, education( not found in school or universities) and determination to amass billions and not spend it all.
MONEY DOESNT DISCRIMINATE

Why is it that I always hear the "work hard, get ideas, be creative, invest right, be determined, save your money" its always from a rich republican radio host or from some guy trying to sell me into an MLM scheme?

This is the age of information and your indoctrination in the public school system hasn't allowed you to even come close to understanding how money truly works.

Well you could stop paying for internet service and then maybe eat 2x a day. Or sell your computer and use the money for food.
Or maybe they should just slit their wrists and just be done with it all right now?
So much for "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" eh?

The single largest problem is priority in this country. Everyone wants it all now. Instead of working and scraping to get some money put away, everyone gets credit and puts themselves in debt. Just buy everything with cash. We should eliminate money and make people deal in ears. Then people will REALLY appreciate what they have. When you can only buy and sell with ears.

So don't bastardize the concept of persuit of happiness by trying to say it has anything to do with how much money you have or do not have.
