Focus on what you can control
Suffering from poverty feels overwhelming, but don't let it. Take control of how you feel and how you think about money. Rather than looking at the big picture and thinking, ‘I could never get out of this,’ look at the little things you can control. For example, you can’t control it when you fall ill, but you can control what you spend your money on outside of the necessities.

When you’re learning how to get out of poverty, you must focus on the controllable things in your life. As you focus on them, you’ll feel more sure of yourself and ready to take the more significant steps—the steps that will get you out of poverty.
