Found a list of 17 ways that rich people tend to think. It’s been floating around the internet for awhile and there’s even a Youtube video on it. How legitimate or practical this list actually is probably will depend on who you ask. And the terms “rich” is pretty subjective to begin with. I don’t know if all the points it lists are true, but it’s fun to go down through it anyway and see if you have any of these traits yourself 🙂

Rich people….

1. Believe they create their own destiny
2. Play the money game to win
3. Are committed to being rich, not just want to be
4. Think big
5. Focus on opportunities rather than obstacles
6. Admire other rich and successful people rather than resent them
7. Associate with positive, successful people
8. Are willing to promote themselves
9. Are bigger than their problems
10. Are great receivers
11. Choose to get paid based on results, not time
12. Think “both” instead of “either or”
13. Focus on their net worth more than their income
14. Manage their money well
15. Make money work hard for them
16. Take action despite fear
17. Constantly learn and grow

I fit in with most of these, so I guess that means I’m on the right track to becoming rich :0) Despite being about your financial well being I think most of the items on the list are pretty good suggestions for how to become successful in life, in general 😀

This is Colgate’s clever advertisement for their dental floss. The idea is that having leftover food between your teeth is so noticeable and attention grabbing, that you might not have even noticed the physical defects in these images, like how in the top picture the lady has one finger too many on her hand. The second picture has an out-of-place arm resting on the guy’s shoulders. And the fellow in the bottom picture is missing his right ear. Which did you notice first, the food between their teeth or the strange body parts?
