Being broke means choosing between going deeper in debt or going without. When being broke is all you have ever known, all you will ever know and all there is, it becomes a permanent state of mind.
It means more stress, physical illness, depression, anger, worries and fears sustained by drawing more from fear of the unknown, listening to more cynicism and repeating bad financial habits like taking another credit to pay off another.
Like poverty, wealth is in the mind, success depends on which “bank account” of behavior you choose to draw on the poor or the wealthy.
To emerge from being broke requires drawing on all the strength of the wealthy and employing a “can do” belief to make a difference.
The wealth choose a strong vision and act with creativity pick smart, simple ideas and act courageously to develop knowledge to mount a dedicated response for building a prosperous future by turning the ideas into cash flow. Being broke and a failure are not part of the vision.
