The fact is saying that anyone is capable of being rich in this world. According to many self-made millionaires, becoming rich and building wealth is not based on the luck of the draw—it is just up to you and your state of mind about money. It’s not about why you can’t be rich? It is about the reasons why you’re not rich. Here are some of the reasons that why you are not going to rich.
