I thank God that I live in America. I truly believe in rugged individualism and the Freedom to choose my career. my relgion, my spouse, the cars I drive, the house I live in, etc.Freedom and democracy is blossoming and thriving in other parts of the world as well. And that is Wonderful!
But with the success and prosperity America has enjoyed, we have also developed a few BAD habits. One is a growing number of people in America feel entitled to “the good life” withOUT doing anything to earn it. This is known as the “welfare mentality.” An example of “welfare mentality” is an able bodied person who CAN work, but feels he does not need to work, but expects OTHERS to pay for his food, clothes, car, health insurance, etc.That is simply wrong!
But just as bad, and maybe worse, than the welfare mentality is the “workfare mentality.” This is an idea that was popular in the mid 1900s and was preached like it was an eternal truth.”Workfare Mentality” is the belief that “if I just work hard for a company, they will take care of me. They will provide a good salary, good health care and other benefits, and I will be “secure” working for them.That may have been true at one time, but those days are long gone! This is the “age of the entrepreneur.”
You will never experience true freedom as long as you call someone else your “boss!” In fact, speaking of freedom, let’s compare a typical “job” with being in prison!
Prison vs. a JOB (Just Over Broke)…
PRISON: you spend the majority of your time in an 8×10 cell
JOB: you spend the majority of your time in a 6×8 cubicle
PRISON: you get three meals a day
JOB: you only get a break for 1 meal and you have to pay for it
PRISON: a guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you
JOB: you must carry around a security card and unlock and open all the doors yourself
PRISON: you can watch TV and play games
JOB: you get fired for watching TV and playing games
PRISON: you get your own toilet
JOB: you have to share
PRISON: family and friends can visit regularly
JOB: speaking to your family and friends is prohibited
PRISON: all expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required
JOB: you get to pay all the expenses to go to work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for those in prison
PRISON: you spend most of your life looking through the bars from the inside wanting to get out
JOB: you spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars
PRISON: there are wardens who are often sadistic
JOB: they are called managers!
You can break out of your “prison” of mediocrity! You can tell your boss to “take a hike” and become the financial success you’ve always dreamed of. But you need three things
Three things needed for Financial Success
1) A change of mind. You need to change from a welfare or workfare mindset, to an “it’s up to me to make it happen” mindset.
2) A vehicle to take you where you want to go, financially speaking. The best “vehicles” I am aware of are: investing in Real Estate and Starting your Own Home Business. And finally,
3) A mentor. Someone who has “driven” the vehicle you want to drive and has become as successful and you want to be. The old say goes: “You cannot learn to make $100,000 a year from a person who has never made more than $40,000 per year.”
It is up to you!
Act now! Get out of that prison! Start a home based business! With the advantages of the internet, you can start a business for almost nothing. And, with the proper mindset, a good financial vehicle (like a home based internet business) and a mentor to help you, in a short time you will become a wealthy marketer! And you will never want to go back to “prison” again!
