Poverty Mentality

by Glenn Robinson

Financial poverty seems to nurture mental poverty. When you see people who have a nicer home, car, clothes and go to a nicer school you might start to think that you don't have nice things because you are less then they are. That you don't deserve what they have. This thinking would bring along the idea of "They also don't care about me", and in turn "Maybe they're right. Maybe I should accept the poverty that I have;" which is all the more reason for all of us to fight against poverty.
