According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined. But what about the people in between? The middle class? You may be considered middle class. You’re not poor, but you’re not rich…yet. The middle class seems to be shrinking, according to the data revealed over the last couple decades. That means you’re going to be less likely to be middle class in the future. You’ll more likely be poor or rich. Which side do you want to be on?

If you want to be on the side with the rich, you’ve got to start thinking like the rich. Here are 10 differences between middle class and rich people for you to learn from…

1. The middle class live comfortably, the rich embrace being uncomfortable

“Be willing to be uncomfortable. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It may get tough, but it’s a small price to pay for living a dream.”
-Peter McWilliams


“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.”
– Robert Arnott

It’s comfortable to work a “safe” job. It’s comfortable to work for someone else. The middle class think being comfortable means being happy, but the rich realize that extraordinary things happen when we put ourselves in uncomfortable situations. Starting your own business is a risk and risks can be uncomfortable, but a little risk is what it takes to create wealth and achieve superior results.

Step out of your comfort zone. Look at all your options. You will have to be at least a little uncomfortable if you want to become rich. You might even have to fail and that’s great, because if you’re not failing, you’re not doing much.

    And I mean “diseased”, not “cool”.

    So, no one will be comfortable, just anxious, depressed,jealous, sick and tired of constant stress from not enough or too much. Way to do equality as ever before.

    Yes, I know we just pursue what we need, and must never have or the world will end.
    Go play, capitalism is killing the world.

    Right. So the rich just earn money for money’s sake. Not for happiness, just for money. It’s not about having the fancy new car, it’s about having a car with a warranty that isn’t likely to have a huge repair bill in a few years.
    The rich mindset sounds like a cold, dead one. Yes, you’re driven, but why?

    • juliemango

      The point is risk-taking, not living comfortably, bored.

    • By far, most rich do not just earn money for money’s sake. They earn money for the sake of personal success, for the sense of providing well for one’s family, for taking good care of those we love. to make the world a better place, to build a useful idea, to advance human civilization, to be a provider – not a welfare drag on others. to provide jobs. Money is only a symbol of personal achievement.

  • Bradley Barber

    I have little, but I owe nothing. I work hard but my goals are awesome. I have a life plan and I work it everyday. I sacrifice daily, but I have a life. I pray for strength to reach my full potential. I give, so I will learn to let go. I am rich.

    How uncouth. One always removes the band BEFORE lighting a cigar. Clearly American.

  • UtahRed

    I have true friends that aren’t taking advantage of me. I have peace in​ my soul which is more valuable than money. I have integrity which will get me further in life. I don’t need to be rich. But I agree the middle class is disappearing thanks to our corrupt socialist agenda. Capitalism isn’t perfect but at least it represents freedom.
