Jeffrey Strain from TheStreet.com has a few hints to why we’re not rich yet. Mostly, it appears, this is due to how we spend money and not how much money we make. You be the judge.

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
