To change lanes, just like driving a car, you signal your intention. You send a signal to your brain so that your mindset will start to function on thoughts leaving the rat race to thoughts entering the wealth express.
This issue about changing lanes which includes the transition period is covered in the next section of this book. In the meantime, let us concentrate on how a poor person thinks compared to the way a rich person thinks. Knowing the differences helps to open up your perception to the way your mind works. This also prepares or conditions your mind to have an in-depth understanding of financial issues.
The poor work for money. The rich make money work for them. Literally translated, the poor work to gain money in exchange for their services, to pay for bills and all the other expenses. The rich use money to earn money by investing and/or going into business. They employ the services of other people so they do not necessarily have to be physically present to maintain their business. This gives them more free time to engage in other moneymaking ventures.
The poor think that the love of money is the root of all evil that is why they choose to remain poor. The rich think that the lack of money is the root of all evil, that is why they strive to create wealth.
