What makes difference between low-income people (or people living in poverty) and the others (or people who do not live in poverty)?

What can we do to end the world poverty? If you are not living in poverty, think what brought you to where you are. Why poor people have become poor? Is it because your parents were not poor? Is it because the ways you think are different? I think here lies some answers to how to end the world poverty.

    In my case, the reason is that my parents were/are not poor, and I’m not used to being poor. I have been afraid of poverty, so I have been trying to keep my life style and income.
    On the other hand, in my father’s case, the reason is that his parents were low-income people. He hated poverty when he was young, so he tried to escape from that situation.
