Repost: 17 Differences Between Rich and Poor
This morning I received an email that was clearly designed to sell me a book or something focusing on what rich people do that poor people do not do. I have no interest in buying whatever they are selling. But sprinkled among the standard “buy this” fare, the email did contain some useful information, information I am republishing here.
Stripping away the stuff we don’t want, here is the useful things from that email with just ONE “buy my book” link retained as a form of citation:

The universal truth is that we become what we think about. Buddha also said “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become”. It’s an obvious fact that if you want to be someone you have to think like that person.
Thinking British is the surest way to become British.
