If someone is living in poverty, whats the best way to try and break the cycle and climb out of the poverty trap?

in #poverty6 years ago (edited)

I am gonna quote Bill Gates here:
"If you are born poor it's not your mistake, but if you die poor it's your mistake."
No matter what's your financial condition but if you are willing to break the shackles of laziness, discouragement, disappointment and resentment you can change your fate. You are born to a poor family, you don't have enough money to live your dream life. Just figure out for yourself what you want from life. Then, lay out a plan and act on it. I know it's easier said than done. But if you wan to change your life you have to first take charge of it.

Go out there and meet people and make connections. Learn the necessary skills, educate yourself and whatever it is you wanna do just go for it. If it's a business just indulge yourself in it and if it's a job just acquire the necessary skills and apply for it. And remember when you are in your learning phase, support yourself with any kind of job you can find. No matter what it is just do it coz you need money man. And when you are content with what you have learned then pursue a career in it. Your firm determination, hard work and smart work will get you out of the poverty cycle that you are in.

Thanks! Regards @thinkhard.
