Poverty is indeed a disease. It has deprived a lot of people of their rights and makes them lose their dignity in life. It has cause a lot of damages in the lives of youths and society in general. It has really made a lot of people choose the wrong path in life. Poverty is really a great threat to human existence.
Many people have fallen victim due to their wrong state of mind. Some people have the mind-set that God never created everyone to be rich in their perspective. They settle in poverty and believe its the way God designed them to be on earth. Others feels that since no one has ever make it before in their family that it might be a generational cause or genetical. That’s wrong! You can be the one to make that change by making a difference. Everyone is born to be rich and make impacts in life. No one is born to be poor. If you must be rich in this life, you must first fight your state of mind and then desire to be rich and you will.
Always bear in mind that you’re born to affect your generation positively and to leave a legacy behind.
This article will help you understand some reasons why you should not be poor in life. The reasons are under listed below:
1. POVERTY BRINGS INSULTS.
Poverty has negative effects in the life of people. Its makes people to disrespect and disregard you. It creates room for a lot of insults and humiliation.
2. POVERTY BRINGS DISRESPECT AND REJECTION.
Poverty has the tendency of making you to be despised and rejected by people. Even your own family can despise and reject you. I have seen a case where a first son who sacrificed his own life to make sure his younger ones go to school and make it in life. After they are done with their academic and had good jobs, they started seeing him as a burden. None of them want to see him around their house. They now counted him as a failure.
No one will want to associate with the poor. They are giving less attention both in the family and society in general.
3. POVERTY LIMITS YOUR POTENTIAL IN LIFE.
Poverty restricts your potential and prevents you from attaining the level you ought to in life. It has the ability of limiting you from achieving your goal in life. It has the tendency of killing ones dream. Without money your potentials will be restricted. There is a story of poor man who is full of wisdom. He has lots of ideas but no money to work them into reality. Each time he share his ideas to his friend who he needed to support him with some money to work this ideas into reality ,his friend will side him off and make use of the ideas to increase his riches and limits the poor man’s potential. Shun poverty because it will limit your potential in life.
4. POVERTY MAKES ONE NOT TO HAVE A VOICE IN HIS FAMILY/SOCIETY
No matter your wisdom and intelligence in the families and societies today, if you are not rich no one will listen to you. The wisdom and intelligence of a man is despised if that man is poor. When you are poor, people see your ideas and contributions as not being useful. They always shun you each time you stand up to make a point in any gathering.
5. POVERTY MAKES A PERSON TO LIVE A LONELY LIFE.
When you are rich people will always like to be around you or create relationship with you. They will always look for every possible means to get your attention and move with you. But when you are poor, no one will like to come around you, not even your relatives. Everyone will see you as nobody or even see you as liability. They will all avoid you, making you live a lonely and separate live.

The rich always have dominion over the poor. The poor is a slave to the rich. When you are poor, the rich use you as a slave to increase their riches.
7. POVERTY DENIES YOU OF WHAT YOU WANT TO EAT, WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, and WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
Poverty have the ability of denying a lot of people of their essential needs in life. It restricts people to a particular place in life. It keeps one stagnant in a particular environment.
