The issue of poverty is extremely complex to analyze in its entirety because there are many variables involved, but several elements that can give us some guidance on how to improve this condition can annotate. For years I have visited different areas of my country and I’ve seen the behavior of people living under the poverty line and I find that the three factors that largely determine the status of these people are: education, attitudes and beliefs. The basic formal education is indispensable for the development of the Nations, with a well-educated people is capable of being able to communicate efficiently, learn the basic operations of the economy and be able to join to the labour market or well to develop your own business, we see that in countries where there is the condition of poverty, educational levels are lowTherefore it is necessary to improve this aspect. As a second factor we see the attitude, this is transcendental, without attitude and desire for change are not looking at the possibility of improving our lives, for example I I have visited rural areas of my country and I find that people possess large solar on their homes that have no crops or fruit trees, vegetables, or basic grains and have over 30 years of living in that place, we also see the dirt, if we seek labor for certain activities not found, with many quiet people in their homesappalling practices of everything giving people for nothing have been pitifully in underdeveloped countries, this is a harmful practice, persons become dependent and do not want to make any effort to get out of the situation in which they are, this is not a generalized assertion because also be hardworking people and they really want to overcome and no doubt succeed. As mentions ANDREW CORENTT in his book I am happy, I am rich, shows us that any change requires discipline, order, effort and organized labor, that must be always clear, the problem of many people is that they want to change without effort, that’s pretty unlikely, with one positive attitude and a great desire for change will be opening us to a huge world of opportunities.
