Who are the richest people in the world? Please understand my question. I am not saying, who is the richest person in the world? I am asking, who are the richest people in the world?

Is it politicians? If it is, the question will be; where did they get the money? So it is not them because if it were everyone would like to become one so that they could loot the state.

That is where their riches come from. They suppress everyone and after that they do as they like. They take over the state treasury and bar everyone from speaking. So it is not they.

If it is not them, who are they? Do you know the answer? Think about it for a while before you answer. I don’t want you to become polemic and say all sorts of things that are irrelevant to this topic.

The richest people in the world are business people. What is cool for the wealthy is not cool for the poor. For instance, the wealthy would rather take risks than tie themselves to a 9 to 5 job.

They would rather take risks and fail many times over than work for 50 years and when they retire there is nothing to show for it. But the poor don’t see it that way. They would rather work for 50 years than take risks.

When you ask them why, the answer is obvious; they don’t want problems. The poor see problems. They see failure. They see crime.

They don’t want to be robbed. Play it safe. And stay alive.

That’s their motto. The motto of the rich is; behind every problem is a blessing. I find that enlightening. Whenever confronted with problems, ask; “Where’s the blessing?” It is probably somewhere waiting to be revealed.

But because we are focused on problems, we don’t see it. We have problems in this country. South Africa is likely to be downgraded to a junk state. Some say it is because of the President. Why did he fire Nene?

Some say it is because of the Guptas. The Guptas are in charge. They appoint ministers. They bankroll the Zumas. But here’s the thing; if the Guptas are kicked out, will your situation change?

I doubt it. As long as your poverty thinking exists, it won’t. It is not other people that are holding you back. It is you. What are you doing with what you have? Why are you sitting on it?

I’m sure you know what I mean. There’s no need to go there. I’ve said it before.

You’ve got what it takes. But you play victim. You reckon you are incapable. So you become. It is you to change you. Once you do, you’ll take off. Stay positive.
