Does your ‘work’ cause you to forget your ambitions?
Is a Salary a Bribe? -some say it is!- Why? For that very reason… to forget your ambitions.
- Research shows the poorest group of people in the world is salary earners’ group, which is practically next to beggars’ group.
- They live in a vicious cycle of poverty, managed on a 30-day duration. They await their salary continuously month after month and any slight delay brings anxiety, pressure, disappointment.
- Salary is a short-term solution to a life time problem and salary alone cannot solve your money problems.
You need multiple sources of income to balance!
The tax return form contains about 11 income streams, of which salary is just one. Don’t live life fishing with just one hook; there are many fishes in the ocean.
Salary is the MEDICINE for managing POVERTY, not for CURING it. Only your BUSINESS or INVESTMENT cures poverty. Most investors are not salary earners. The *difference* between those beggars on the street and salary earners is one month salary. Shorten the flow of the salary for one month and you’d realize majority are pure poor.
Your Worth Your Value!
If you divide your salary by the rate of exchange, you will discover that you are poorer, relative to when you started work; or divide your annual salary by 2,000 hours to know what your one hour is worth.
If you do not have 3 months salary in savings, you are already poor. Being a salary earner is a mentality, break It! Your worth is far more than your salary. Salary is the value someone has put on your efforts.
Effort vs Reward
Life is a trade off between time, effort and reward. To be rewarded more, you have to become more valuable. Most salary earners end up poor in the long and short term.
How do You Value Yourself
You decide and determine, where you STAND! How much do you value yourself? You can’t increase in value, unless you value yourself differently.
Open Your Eyes
Strive to be FINANCIALLY INTELLIGENT and LITERATE, and OPEN YOUR EYES TO SEE OPPORTUNITIES IN PROBLEMS. Perhaps delve into entrepreneurship because salary is often a lifetime disappointment. Being a salary earner or investor is a decision. Life will not change until you decide. Make the move!
Hmm, maybe some truth to the saying; “Salary is a bribe to forget one’s ambition”.
