Rampant poverty
At the last count, nearly half of the world’s humans – nearly three billion — survive on less than $2.50 a day. Eighty percent live on $10 each day. Forty percent of the world poorest individuals accounts for 5 percent of global income, while the richest 20 percent possess three-quarters of world income.

With such widespread poverty affecting 80 percent of the world’s inhabitants, suffering, deaths, diseases and other negatives becoming a daily occurrence, some believe it is now a right to be poor. Somehow, this can limit people from reaching their intended destination.

Coming from a poor background, even for a while, can create negative consequences far into adulthood. Stress from parents can spill over to children, and this can withhold children as obstacles from succeeding.

The instability that accompanies poverty puts stress on parents, spilling over to children. This can manifest itself in long-lasting ways. Excessive lack has a permanent grip on families, communities and nations. It is inherited by generations, trapping people in a socioeconomic box.

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown,” noted Howard Lovecraft an American author.

Sadly, fear of the unknown is often difficult to describe because it is merely a mental obstacle, but it inhabits one’s ability to perform to the maximum in various spheres. Often, when one encounters an unfamiliar situation, fear manifest and prevents right decision – flees from the scene.

One must know it and learn to confront fear.

This is a psychological state when things feel familiar and one is at ease and in control of their environs, experiencing low levels of anxiety and stress.

Poverty mentality
Poverty mentality manifests in various formats. If you believe you are a victim of other people’s decisions, obsession with getting ‘deals’ and free entry, believe that you are lucky when you success, and incompetent when you fail.

This attitude also exist when having more than the next person makes you ashamed, afraid to be labeled as boasting when you describe a simple triumph, and believing you can become rich by winning a lottery, rather than working.
