The difference between poor and rich countries is not the antiquity of the country.
This is demonstrated by countries such as India and Egypt, which are thousands of years old and poor.
On the other hand, Australia and New Zealand, which a little more than 150 years ago were almost unknown, are today, however, developed and rich countries.
The difference between poor and rich countries is not in the natural resources they have, as is the case of Japan that has a very small territory of which 80% is mountainous and not suitable for agriculture and livestock. However, it is a world economic power, because its territory is like an immense floating factory that receives materials from all over the world and exports them transformed, also to the whole world, thus achieving its wealth.
On the other hand, we have a Switzerland without an ocean, but it has one of the largest shipping fleets in the world; It does not have Cocoa but it has one of the best chocolate in the world; in its few square kilometers, it grazes and cultivates only four months a year since the rest is winter, but it has the best quality dairy products in Europe. Like Japan, it does not have natural resources, but it gives and exports services, with hardly surpassable quality.
It is a small country that has sold an image of security, order and work, which has made it the safe of the world.
Nor is the intelligence of the people the difference, as shown by students from poor countries who emigrate to rich countries and achieve excellent results in their education.
Another example is executives from rich countries who visit our factories; when we talk to them we realize that there is no intellectual difference.
The ATTITUDE of the people is the difference. When studying the behavior of people in rich countries it is discovered that most of the population follows the following rules (the order could be discussed healthily):
1. Morals as a basic principle.
2. Order and Cleanliness
6. The desire to excel
7. Respect for the Law and Regulations
8. Respect for the rights of others
9. Your love of work
10. Your desire for savings and investment
Do we need more laws? Would not it be enough to fulfill and enforce these 10 simple Rules?
In our country, only a small part of the population follows these rules in their daily life.
We are poor because, in addition to wanting to be the most "alive", we simply lack character to fulfill these basic premises of functioning of societies ...
Unlike other chain chats, if you do not send a copy of this to more people, the dog will not die, nor will you be dismissed from work.
You also will not get the lottery for sending it.
But it would be good to share it with other people and see if little by little we are changing, a Venezuelan at a time!
Do not you think it's time to reverse our attitude?
