Character they say is the beauty of a woman and money is the beauty of a man that’s why every man desires success and a luxurious lifestyle.

Moreover, few are willing to go through the right part of success in order to achieve it.

There are certain things men do in their daily life activities that hinders their opportunity to success.


They may see it as a way out of poverty, but woefully, it’s the gateway to the throne of poverty.

There are many habits that can keep a man in the circle of poverty. Check out these 5 Habits to avoid poverty.

1. Gambling. 

There is no such thing as getting rich quick. Financial success takes time, takes initiative, and requires relentless effort to achieve.

People who engage in gambling are deluded into thinking there is a shortcut to success.

A lot of self-made millionaires today didn’t pursue any get-rich quick schemes.


Instead, they make a habit of pursuing their dreams and their goals one after the other.

A lot of Nigerian youths believe so much in gambling that they made it a job.

They have the believe that a single one hundred naira note can fetch them fifteen million naira.

How long do intend on spending before you achieve that goal.

Every known successful man today never earned their wealth from gambling.


2. Drinking Too Much Alcohol.

While the occasional glass of wine or beer is fine, drinking too much could reduce your chances to financial success.

Do you know drinking too much could affect your memory and ability to think clearly ?.

If you can’t think and remember things clearly, how do you intend to make a plan for your financial freedom ?.

I’m not saying alcohol is evil but there is a limit to everything in life including the same alcohol.

Some men believe it’s never okay till they feel drunk. Only a poor man with a poor mentality thinks like that.


1-2 bottles of beer or even 2 glasses of wine is very much okay for a man with a goal in life.

It doesn’t mean you have to start drinking two glasses everyday.

There are times when things are required in life. Say no to excessive intake of alcohol for your financial freedom.

3. Your Type Of Friends.

A wise man once said, Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.

Those words are absolutely true. Who you hang out with matters more than you may think.


Many rich people today changed their friends the day they decided to make wealth.

Make a habit of associating with other success-minded individuals like you.

If you sorround yourself with drunkards and smokers, even if you don’t drink or smoke, definitely one day you will see yourself doing it.

You are only going to succeed in life if you surround yourself with the right type of people.

4. Spending Too Much Time Infront Of The TV.

In a success study, it is revealed that 80% of poor people today spend more than five hours Infront of their television screen daily.


Complete precious five hours.

Have you ever wondered why the most expensive cars and properties are not putting their advertisements on TV ?.

The answer is simple, the people who buy and patronise it doesn’t spend time on television so probably they can’t see it.

The rich or success-minded people would rather be educated than entertained.

They replace TV time with reading, thinking, exercising, or any other form of self education.


I’m not saying watching TV is something not important, but spending too much time on it.

Spend more time in planning your map to success instead of watching people who followed their path to success.

5. Thinking Negatively.

Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook to it.

You can never be successful if you always imagine yourself poor.

If you don’t believe in yourself, why trying ?.


You always have the thoughts of I cannot make it, that’s one of the reasons you have not made it to success.

The problem for most people is that they’re completely unaware of their thoughts, positive or negative.

Take your mind of negative thoughts. Replace them with positiveness. They say a believer is an achiever. Believe in yourself.
