To reflect and … Act.

To reflect and ... Act To reflect and ... Act.The difference between poor countries and the rich ones is not the age of the country. This can be shown by countries like India & Egypt, that are more than 2000 years old and are poor. On the other hand, Candada, Australia & New Zealand, that 150 years ago were inexpressive, today are developed countries and are rich.

The difference between poor & rich countries does not reside in the available natural resources. Japan has limited territory, 80% mountainous, inadequate for agriculture & cattle raising, but it is the ninth strongest economy in the world. Then there is the small country of Switzerland, which does not plant coco but has the best chocolate in  the world. In its little territory they raise animals and plant the soil during 4 months per year. Not enough, they produce dairy products of the best quality. It is a small country that transmits an image of security, order and labour, which has not only made it the world’s strong safe, but is also ranked as the number 1 economy in the world.

Race or skin color are not important: Immigrants labeled lazy in their countries of origin are the productive power in rich European countries.

You may then ask, what sets the rich countries aside from the poor?

The difference is in the education of its people, framed along the years by the attitude and culture.

On analyzing the top 10 behaviors of the people in rich & developed countries, we find that the great majority follow the following principles in their lives:

  1. Passion for ongoing learning & education;
  2. Ethics, as a basic principal;
  3. Integrity;
  4. Responsibility;
  5. Respect to the laws & rules;
  6. Respect to the rights of other citizens;
  7. Work loving;
  8. Strive for saving & investment;
  9. Will of super action; and
  10. Punctuality.

In poor countries, only the minority follow these basic principles in their daily life.

We are not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel to us. We are poor because we lack education. We lack the will to comply with and teach these functional principles of rich & developed societies.

Let’s concentrate on implementing these basic 10 principles and change the future of our great country.
