It’s much better to live as poor in the prosperous environment than to be a rich man in the midst of devastation and degradation.
The world is just a mirror. It reflects that you think about it. If you think that the worlds is happy place where you can get everything easy then the world will be such place. But if you think that the world is unhappy and tough and only ones who were born lucky enough will live happily and wealthily then you doomed to be a loser.
Your attitude to the world surrounding you is the real matter. Change your attitude from negative to positive and you’ll be surprised how the world will change itself according your attitude.
