The difference between the poor and rich nations:

Is not the age of the Nation.

Countries like India and Egypt which are more than 2000 years are still poor on the other hand the countries like Canada, Australia and Newzealand, which 150 years ago were insignificant today are developed rich countries.

Is not dependent on the available natural resources

Japan has limited territory – 80% mountains, unsuitable for agriculture or framing, but is the second in the world’s economy.

The country is like a immense floating factory – importing raw material from the whole world and exporting manufactured products.

Switzerland does not grow cocoa but produces the best chocolates in the world. In her small territory she rears animals and cultivates the land only for four months in a year, nevertheless manufactures the best milk products. Indeed a small country which is an image of security which has made it the strongest World Bank.

Executives from rich countries who interact with their counterparts from poor countries show no significant intellectual differences.


The difference is the attitude of people molded for many years by education and culture!

When we analyze the conduct of people from rich and developed countries it is observed that :

A majority abide by the following principles

ETHICS as basic principle


Respect for Laws and Regulation

Respect for majority of citizens by right

The love for work

The effort to save and invest

Will to be productive


In the poor countries a small minority follow these basic principles in their daily life.

We are not poor because we lack natural resources or because the nature was cruel towards us

We are poor because we lack attitude and we lack the will to follow and teach these principles of working of the rich developed societies.

We are in this state because we want to take advantage over everything and everyone.

We are in this state because we see something done wrong and say ‘let it be’ or say ‘everything cannot be perfect’.

We should have a spirited memory and attitude, only then will we be able to change our present state.

Oops! This analysis on a Macro scale is also applicable to our organizations in a Micro Scale.

If you are not doing as well as your competitor , now you know the reason.

ATTITUDE – Indeed Attitude determines the altitude you Scale!


Patient (to cosmetic surgeon):
Will it hurt me, doctor?

Surgeon: Only when you get my bill.
