10 Distinctions Between Millionaires and the Middle Class

Will be buying this book after reading the 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership!

"Rich and very rich people have developed the discipline of delayed gratification. Millionaires do today what others don't, so they can have tomorrow what others won't."
  1. Millionaires think long term, the middle class thinks short term.
  2. Millionaires talk about ideas, the middle class talks about things and other people.
  3. Millionaires embrace change, the middle class is threatened by change.
  4. Millionaires take calculated risks, the middle class is afraid to take risks.
  5. Millionaires continually learn and grow, the middle class thinks learning ended with school.
  6. Millionaires work for profits, the middle class works for wages.
  7. Millionaires believe they must be generous, the middle class believes they can’t afford to give.
  8. Millionaires have multiple sources of income, the middle class only has one or two.
  9. Millionaires focus on increasing their net worth, the middle class focuses on increasing their paychecks.
  10. Millionaires ask themselves empowering questions, the middle class ask themselves disempowering questions.
