TheStreet.com outlines 10 bad habits that keep people from acquiring wealth.

It has nothing to do with your earning potential. It’s all about common sense.

Some of the reasons include:

  • Not willing to learn — each of us must keep up with changes and developments in our work if we want to advance our careers.
