Stop Staying 'I'm So Broke!' Because In Reality You Probably Aren't

It's called perspective, guys.

Listen, we all go through periods where we have very little money, but when you look at the big picture, it's much harder to say that you're "broke." You know that single mom working three jobs to feed her kids? More broke. And that guy who got into an accident but has no insurance? Waaayyy more broke. And of course, the homeless guy you passed on your way into Starbucks to order your venti-double-sea-salt-mocha-chai-frappa-latte-skinny-soy-chino? INFINITELY more broke.

So when you say things like, "I'm broke," this new video from CollegeHumor urges you to take a step back and really think about what you're saying. And then ... stop saying it. Because you're probably doing okay compared to most people in the world.
