According to Akpaloo, Ghanaians must learn to defeat such mindset because “that way of thinking keeps people from being successful.”

Akpaloo noted that Ghana will “never develop” if its citizens are not ready to change their thinking.

He continued: “We must stop agreeing with a poverty mindset. When you’re in a poverty mindset, fear is an indicator that you must do something. That needs to be your operating basis."

“Stop thinking poor thoughts. Stop spending time with poor people. You must cut those off. Begin doing wealthy things, thinking wealthy thoughts, and spending time with wealthy people.

When you decide, you may need to decide again, and again, and again. This mindset is a hard mindset to break."
