According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined. But what about the people in between? The middle class? You may be considered middle class. You’re not poor, but you’re not rich yet. The middle class seems to be shrinking, according to the data revealed over the last couple decades. That means you’re going to be less likely to be middle class in the future. You’ll more likely be poor or rich. Which side do you want to be on?
If you want to be on the side with the rich, you’ve got to start thinking like the rich.
Formal education will make you a living, self education will make you a fortune
The only difference between a rich person and the poor person is how they use their time.
Statistically speaking, most of us grew up in the lower or middle class.We learned the specific behaviors, mindsets, actions, and lifestyle of those around us in our same social class. These experiences created most of our perspective of how the world works, and taught us our place in it.
Unfortunately, many lessons we learned were negative. They were based on small thinking, scarcity, and fear. Many lower and middle class citizens have become jaded and bitter, and they’ve spread this mindset to their children.
But if you want to develop incredible discipline and achieve an upper-class lifestyle, you need to shed the beliefs of the lower and middle class.
Before we go on, let me be clear:
When I say “upper class,” I don’t mean those rich snobs who inherited their parents’ money and spend it wrecking cars that cost more than a small house. I don’t mean the greedy 1% who constantly try to distance themselves from the poor and their problems.
What I say “upper class,” I’m referring to the kind of people who manage enormous amounts of money, fame, influence, and popularity and consistently make the world a better place with their gifts.
They put in the work no-matter-what. They hustle, they learn, they work their asses off developing a killer mindset that can handle a high amount of pressure.This could be you, if you wanted.
Mental resilience is arguably the most critical trait of a world-class performer, and it should be nurtured continuously
By Josh Waitzkin (world champion chess player)
My instinct is to seek out challenges as opposed to avoiding them.
Is that your mindset? Is your life based on the world-class mindsets and beliefs of upper class performers? Do you seek out challenges and focus on building your resiliency? Do you invest in yourself, working towards important goals?
If you want to have consistent discipline to do what you should do, take a lesson from the world’s top performers. Act like they do. Treat yourself like they treat themselves.
Develop an upper-class mindset, and you’ll start acting like upper-class. Pretty soon, you’ll start seeing upper-class results.
Middle Class Mentality :
Many of us were taught to go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a good job, get a mortgage, a couple car loans and a credit card. We put in our 40 every week, buy things we can’t afford and make interest payments every month. These things may seem like we’re happy but we’re living for the moment, not for the future.
The stuff we’re able to buy on a middle class wage is just enough to satisfy us. We’re happy enough but we’re like boiling a frog. The water is all warm and comfy for a while but eventually, we’re gonna start to boil ! You the only one who can bring the change in the middle class mentality.

The only way you become a leading man is to treat yourself like a leading man, and work your ass off
By Arnold Schwarzenegger
Your life is a direct product of your standards. You’ll get what you put up with.
Surround yourself with people who force you to level up and become more than you are.
Incredibly successful people have extremely exclusive friend groups.
Will your current friends help you on this journey? Or are they the type of people who just want to set up camp and never leave?
So don’t waste the time in thinking, just start the work and do it in a manner. Things takes times but one day you will reach that point where you want to be in your life.
