“Better to be a median man in a high rent area than be a lord in a ghetto. Move from a low rent area even if you have to live in a room in a high rent area. Poverty shouldn’t be brought on by generational curses, however by generational unhealthy habits triggered by your surroundings.
“You are the average of the 5 people you hang around with the most. Your neighbours either add to your labour or your favour. That is why you should choose where you live wisely. Slums often come with scums. It is hard to rise above your location.”
