 21 Major Differences in the thinking of Average People vs. Rich People

 Steve Siebold spent nearly three decades studying and interviewing millionaires to find out what unique features made them different than ordinary people. What he found was quite interesting. In almost all cases the single biggest difference other than the obvious bank accounts was the thought patterns and processes of the average people vs. rich people. He published his findings and discovery in his book titled “How Rich People Think.” These 21 major differences are points that he brings up in his book and I recommend checking it out.

In the earlier parts of this series we began looking at why there is such a disparity between average people vs. rich people. It isn’t just in the bank account. The big differences lie in the thinking and decision making that direct the actions that result in a big bank account. So it makes sense that if you want the big bank account you have to undertake the specific actions that the rich use to create it. And first, there has to be a ‘rich thinking’ to define and guide those actions.

The 21 Major Differences In The Thinking Of Average People vs. Rich People continued

average people vs. rich people

18. Average people play it safe with money. Rich people know when to take risks.The rich are always on the lookout for opportunities to use leverage in order to make money. Every investment has the potential to lose money, but it also has the ability to earn more when it goes well. The rich use their time learning to assess opportunities and then invest in those that have acceptable levels of risk.

Meanwhile the average people won’t invest because that is deemed too risky, but they will plunk down their hard earned wages on the table at Vegas, or worse yet, on the counter of the local 7/11 buying lottery tickets. The rich don’t buy lottery tickets. That’s gambling, not investing.

19. Average people love to be comfortable. Rich people find comfort in uncertainty. By and large, average people vs. rich people1 those people that become millionaires do so by taking risks. That means moving well outside of their comfort zone. Most people are both unwilling to take on perceived risk, and leave their comfort zone. Comfortable and bearable are the watchwords of the average people vs. rich people whose watchwords are leverage and risk/reward.

Rich people have learned that the price of ultimate comfort is boredom and a lacklustre existence. They will do anything to avoid that, including learning how to be uncomfortable even when times are very uncertain.

20. Average people never make the connection between money and health. Rich people know money can save your life. Even in Canada (the country widely considered to have the most advanced social health care system) there is in essence a two or three tier medical system. Only the very wealthy and their well connected friends have access to top quality personalized health care.

The next layer has the professionals and those who have large disposable incomes who can pay for specific services on demand. This allows them to leapfrog over people waiting in queue who don’t have the money available to hire private assessment and treatment teams.And at the very bottom are the average people who must wait in line for government funded social medical treatment.

In the United States and elsewhere you have access to that type of care if you are a politician, a member of the armed forces, or a retiree. Otherwise your only coverage comes through your JOB or a private health plan. You can rest assured that the wealthy have very good health plans.

21. Average people believe they must choose between a great family and being rich. Rich people know you can have it all. ‘You have to choose between your career and a family.’ This is frequently heard when you are talking to average people vs. rich people and their words,  ‘I can have it all if I approach this right.’ Once again it is the mindset of the rich to approach everything with a mind of possibility, rather than limitation and abundance rather than scarcity.

Average people are always worried that there is never enough. Never enough time, never enough money, never enough of anything good so they are always chasing, chasing, chasing.  It is a Law of Nature that anything that you chase will move farther away from you.


The rich do not pursue money, health or happiness. They know there is plenty there for all, much more than we can ever use up. All it takes to be rich is to begin to believe that and to change our attitudes towards money. Money is only a tool that is used to provide options.

I hope that you have enjoyed this series of posts based on Steve Siebold’s book “How Rich People Think” as much as I have enjoyed writing it. I have really picked up a few pointers on how I can change my thinking and I hope that you have as well. I also strongly encourage you to check out Steve’s book for a far more in depth and insightful look into the differences in the thinking process of average people vs. rich people.

Till Next Time….
