Poverty Mentality

Poverty Mentality

Poverty mentality is a mindset that a person develops over a long period of time that is based on a strong belief that they will not have enough money , always struggles with money. It is a mindset that is driven by fear
Poverty is not God’s plan, poverty is a type of spiritual and financial slavery 
.DEUTERONOMY  15: 4-6  except when there may be no poor among you; for the LORD will greatly bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance— 5 only if you carefully obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today. 6 For the LORD your God will bless you just as He promised you; you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow; you shall reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over you. Poverty is a  curse, it is a manmade curse. Bible says,  Proverbs 14:31 He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, But he who honors Him has mercy on the need
Signs that You May Have A Poverty Mindset
1. You Lack Ambition
People who struggle to create abundance in their lives often have very limited dreams and goals. So, if you don’t make plans, find it difficult to picture a better life, tend to “settle” for whatever is offered to you, or often nurture a kind of apathy towards your personal development, you may very well have a poverty mindset.
The reasons why you might lack ambition (e.g. low self-esteem and negatives messages in childhood), but the result is the same; you end up limiting your own potential and attracting more of the uninspiring things you’ve already experienced in life.
2. You Are Pessimistic and Self-Pitying
We all find it difficult to deal with bad things that happen to us, and it’s not a crime to experience grief, sadness, or anger. In fact, all of these emotions can promote growth and push you towards lessons that help you create a better future.
However, a common characteristic of the poverty mentality is a default position of helplessness and self-pity. You may find yourself asking “Why me?” on a regular basis, viewing yourself as a victim who has no power or control. In conjunction with this, you’re likely to be pessimistic, expecting more negativity to come your way.
3. You Are A Deeply Jealous Person
When looking at rich mentality vs. poor mentality, experts often note just how much the poor mentality is defined by intense jealousy. You might constantly compare yourself to others, wanting what they have and believing that they don’t really deserve it. If you have a particularly entrenched poverty mindset, you may find a reason to be jealous of virtually everyone you meet, paying more attention to this pathological envy than you do to your own strengths or what you want for yourself.
While we all get jealous now and again, a person whose emotional life is defined by jealousy will often fail to manifest anything good.
4. You Make Your Decisions Based on Your  Fear
A poor mindset is primarily driven by feelings of fear. So, even when you exercise your agency, you do so feeling like your back is against the wall. This means you focus on avoiding bad things and on protecting yourself from harm rather than concentrating on obtaining good things or welcoming positivity into your life.
In addition, a life that is ruled by fear is also one in which the body is under a huge amount of strain, constantly producing stress hormones. This means it’s easy to get trapped in a never-ending cycle of anxiety, hardly ever sparing a thought for your own potential.
5. You Focus On What You Don’t Have, Not What You Do Have
When obsessing over how to break poverty cycles, you may naturally feel drawn to thoughts about what you lack. After all, it’s this lack that makes you want something different.
However, this way of thinking is itself characteristic of a poverty mindset. This sign often accompanies the above sign of jealousy, as when you think about what you don’t have, your attention quickly wanders to people who seem to have all those things you yearn for.
As with any manifestation goal, training your thoughts on what you lack actually means that you unwittingly attract more lack into your life.
