“Let us become intimate with poverty, so that Fortune may not catch us off our guard. We shall be rich with all the more comfort, if we once learn how far poverty is from being a burden.’”Seneca. Letters from a Stoic. Letter 18: On Festivals and Fasting
Practice being uncomfortable. Our worst fears are often more horrific than the actual event. If poverty is what you fear, practice living minimally and become comfortable with it. If for whatever reason the circumstance occurs where you are impoverished, you will already have trained yourself on how to handle the situation.
