“You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it” Haggai 1:6.
This is a message to build!
How many of you feel your job is not enough to meet your needs? Not enough to put some amount aside to save or even invest? It only pays bills, and not all bills. Then your purse is leaking, it has holes in it and you need to change it.
I once heard a joke that there are three types of salaries:
1: Storm type of salary; this type does not announce when it is coming, it comes suddenly, it could be on 25th, 15th, 30th…of the month. The alert comes suddenly, and every one screams.
2: Onion type of salary: this type makes you cry whenever you open your purse. Just like when you cut onions, water comes out of your eyes. This type of salary makes you cry.
3: Menstrual type of salary: this type of salary comes after every 25–28days and only last between 4-8days.
So which type of salary class do you fall?
Quit any strategy that doesn’t work, quit that job that doesn’t meet your needs! Quit making other people rich while you work yourself out only to earn a salary that doesn’t last. There is no point being on a bus that is taking you nowhere.
The benefit of building your own business far outweighs having a job; You control your time, control who works for you and who you work for. You control how much you earn and how much to pay yourself.
There is absolutely no point being on a job where you grumble all day. If the driver of that bus is not heading in your direction, simply alight.
In the coming posts I will be telling you when it is the right time to start building your own business, just before you quit. Till then, I leave you with these words to ponder on:
“You’ll live by your sword, hand-to-mouth, and you’ll serve your brother, but when you can’t take it anymore, you’ll break loose and run free”
These words most relate to the type of jobs that many have, but remember; “until you can’t take it anymore” you have a choice, a choice to break loose and run free!
