Get rich

One reason why you might never get rich or experience success

One reason you might never get rich or experience success

This is a story I’ve recently read about the Russian farmer and the German farmer.

The poor German farmer is walking down the road and sees the big and shiny house of his neighbor and he starts thinking to himself: “one day, no matter how much I’d have to work and no matter how long it will take me, I’ll be at least as rich as my neighbor. Then I will afford a house like this myself and we’ll be the same.”

The poor Russian farmer is walking down the road and sees the big and shiny house of his neighbor and he starts thinking to himself: “one day, no matter what I’ll have to do, no matter how long it will take me, he’ll be at least as poor as me. Then we will be the same and I’ll never have to worry again.”

Thinking like the Russian farmer in the story will definitely not going to help you much in life, nor your family for that matter. Yet I see this kind of attitude all around me, even among the younger generation.

Do you know any Russian farmer around you?
