30 Things Poor People Do That Rich People Don’t

Have you ever looked at a rich person and wondered, “What are they doing that I’m not?” Or, rather, what are you doing that is keeping you poor? This is not meant to bash people or make them feel bad about themselves.

It is simply a compilation of advice taken from wealthy people on the “poor habits” that they never incorporate into their lives.

30. Watching TV Every Night (Or a ton of Netflix)

One common trait among all poor people is that they watch a lot of TV. They might come home from work and immediately turn on the television. They may also be the same people who are binge-watching a series on Netflix on a regular basis. For a lot of people, watching television and movies is a way for them to escape their reality. This is the key to the difference between the rich and poor. Instead of looking for an escape, rich people are trying to find solutions and keep moving forward.

Shows do not actually educate or add any value to your life. Rich people often work long hours and realize that watching TV is simply a waste of time unless the information is somehow relevant to their lives.
