20 Reasons You're Not Rich

The old list:
  1. You Care What Your Neighbors Think
  2. You Aren't Patient
  3. You Have Bad Habits
  4. You Have No Goals
  5. You Haven't Prepared
  6. You Try to Make a Quick Buck
  7. You Rely on Others to Take Care of Your Money
  8. You Invest in Things You Don't Understand
  9. You're Financially Afraid
  10. You Ignore Your Finances
And the new list:
  1. You care what your car looks like
  2. You feel entitlement
  3. You lack diversification
  4. You started too late
  5. You don't do what you enjoy
  6. You don't like to learn
  7. You buy things you don't use
  8. You don't understand value
  9. Your house is too big
  10. You fail to take advantage of opportunities
To which I have to add one more -- I'm in grad school!
