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.

    Contact Doctor Odunga at OR Whats App/CALL +2348167159012

    I got my ex husband back to me and also got fertile and gave birth to twin girls after 12 years of marriage.
    When I came online last year, I saw a testimony about Doctor Odunga and how he has been helping people with marriage issues and I decided to contact him. We spoke on email at and later he gave me his Whats-App number which is +2348167159012. He assured me he would help me get my ex husband back after 3 years of no contact. Doctor Odunga is the best spell caster I must say. My husband called me after 24 hours of contact. The third day, I received natural herbs for fertility and after using it, I became fertile and conceived. My husband and I reconnected, had sex and I was pregnant. Presently I am happy to say I am the mother of twin girls and this is ALL THANKS TO DOCTOR ODUNGA. I came online to say this: If you need help, I believe you are saved with this man.
