Being Poor vs. Being Broke

A lot of people think because I grew up with nothing that I was poor, but that’s not true at all.

I’ve never been poor, only broke. Being poor is a frame of mind. Being broke is only a temporary situation.
-Mike Todd

Even when I didn’t have much, I never woke up in the morning and wished I was someone else. And even when I wake up now, I never wish I could trade lives with anyone.

Like who you are and be grateful for what you have.

Like who you are and be grateful for what you have. Financial success, or a lack thereof does not define your value.

In an older blog I wrote called Net Worth vs Self-Worth I talked about this concept.

I'm not going to tell you that net-worth and self-worth are unrelated or irrelevant to each other, as other bloggers have done.

What I'd like you to do is simply remember that your net worth doesn't define your self-worth. That there's so much more to your self-worth than your financial assets, and there always will be.

Learn to value YOU. Don't let the number in your bank account reflect what type of person you are.

Just remember, if you think you're "broke," that doesn’t make you poor. The only thing that can ever make you poor is a negative outlook on your life.
