How to Not Prove You’re Broke

by Minority Fortune

How is this wealth?

This isn’t the first Grade F behavior video we’ve seen from a hardly wealthy individual boasting about ghost wealth by flashing up an estimated 20 ounces of cash. How that equates to long lasting wealth still baffles us. Let’s see where this individual will be income wise in a few decades.

Want to brag about not being broke? Here’s how you do it:

-       Reveal a source of recurring income. Don’t point to your one-hit single on iTunes. Don’t refer to your recording contract that will ultimately screw you over. Don’t hold up cash that possibly ties in with illegal activities. Show us your business. Talk about your investment techniques.

-       Let your actions say it: Seriously, does Bill Gates have to fill his swimming pool with hundred dollar bills just to show that he’s worth lots of money? Not at all. The truly wealthy’s lifestyle says it all. If you have to constantly boast and show others that you are wealthy, then you’re not wealthy at all. We’re sure many classified Antoine Walker as wealthy when he had a $100 million dollar contract to his name. However, he was never wealthy due to his poor financial behaviors.

-       Associate Bigger: There are tons of these urban videos of “celebrities” from poor backgrounds trying to boast their wealth. If you’re only comparing yourself against your “boys”, people at clubs, unemployed people around you, etc., then you have a poor measuring system for wealth. If you want the truth, you’ll start comparing yourself with young CEOs and moguls who have thriving businesses and nine digits to their names. Stop comparing your success with people in a neighborhood where the average household income may lie at $50,000. If your social circle is filled with people doing absolutely nothing, you will reflect these behaviors too.
