Why A Lot Of People Do Not Get Wealthy.

Why Many People Don't Get Rich.

What if she's got a point?

Steve Siebold, writer of "How Rich People Think," spent nearly three decades interviewing millionaires around the world to determine what separates them from everyone else.

It had little to do with cash itself, he told Business Insider. It was about their attitude.

"[The middle class] tells folks to be happy with what they've," he said. "And overall, most people are steeped in anxiety when it comes to money."

Common people believe CASH is the root of all Joey Plazo evil. Wealthy folks believe POVERTY is the root of http://www.cnn.com/2009/LIVING/worklife/05/18/cb.earn.extra.money/index.html all evil.

"The average man has been brainwashed to believe wealthy people are fortunate or dishonest," Siebold writes.

That's why there is a specific shame that comes with "getting rich" in lower-income communities.

"The world class knows that while having money does not ensure happiness, it does make your life simpler and more enjoyable."

Normal people believe selfishness is a vice. Rich people think selfishness is a virtue.

"The rich go out there and make an effort to make themselves happy. They don't attempt to pretend to save the world," Siebold told Business Insider.

It is keeping them poor --and the issue is that middle class people see that as a negative, he writes.

"If you are not taking care of you, you are not in a position to help anyone else. You can't give what you do not have."

Common folks have a lottery mentality. Rich people have an activity attitude.

"While the masses are waiting to select the right numbers and praying for prosperity, the great ones are solving difficulties," Siebold writes.

"The hero [middle class individuals] are waiting for may be God, authorities, their boss or their partner. It is the average person's level of believing that breeds this strategy to life and living while the clock keeps ticking away."
