3 Attitudes That Prevent You from Reaching Financial Freedom

Religious people usually promote that excessive love of money is not a charitable deed. At least, this is what the Bible says. However, researches show that believers are often richer than those who do not follow any religious teachings.

The Pew Research Center's survey conducted in 2014 showed that the number of rich followers of some religions is greater than those who do not consider themselves to follow any religious movements (including atheists and agnostics).

Sociologists polled about 35 thousand Americans who profess different religious teachings. Their average annual income amounted to $30.5 thousand. The number of the rich (annual income exceeds $100 thousand) turned out to be the highest among the followers of three religions - Judaism (44%), Hinduism (36%), and Orthodoxy (29%). Among those who do not believe in God, the proportion of rich people was only 21%, so they took fifth place among 12.
