Bad habits are also reasons you may be poor. Habits like laziness, procrastination and time-wasting, drugs, smoking and alcohol are also habits that will eventually lead to being poor and broke.

To a man without goals, there is no destination. It’s very important to have goals in your life. Without proper goals you are not aware about what you are doing in your life.
