“The first responsibility of every parent is to build a financial wall around their children” – Jim Rohn.
The following article describes my sentiments exactly:
In cities and towns throughout America, there exist thousands of slave labor camps. Near these camps, which weave in and out of cities and rural communities are settlements where the slaves live. Each morning, these slaves move “herd-like” from their homes and into their assigned places of labor. Each one arrives at his or her station by 7:30 a.m. where they report to their masters for their day’s duties. Then they remain chained to certain tasks until 5:00 p.m. when they are released. These slaves have no choice on how many hours they must labor sometimes they are required to work overtime until their master tells them when they may leave.
Year after year, they are told when to take their vacation, for how long, and when they must return. They have little choice as to how much money they earn. They are allowed very little time for lunch and coffee breaks during these labor hours. They remain in their chains with great fear because the Masters can punish them with the “lay-off” whip. It is said that even some slaves that are good and faithful have felt the sting of the whip. Day by day, year by year, they toil until the master decides that it is time for them to stop working. He then releases them to the retirement camps, where they are forced to sit idle and wait for death. It’s a well-known fact that the old slaves that try to work are sometimes whipped with the “stop-your-pension” whip.
I know these slave camps really exist, for I am a free man who lives among the slaves. I am in business for myself and I answer to no one… I rise in the morning and make my schedule. I decide my own hours; I can even sleep-in late while the slaves are at work. I can vacation when, where, and for how long I please. I am free to take my coffee and lunch break when I decide, and of course I decide my own pay check, because I am not a slave. I can choose to work when and where I please and with whom I please. I am free to stay in the city for as long as I want or to move on to greener pastures if I decide to.
I have seen many slaves trade one master for another, thinking somehow their life will be different. There is a ray of hope for the slave, though. He or she can buy his or her own freedom. The cost is not high, yet it seems high to those who don’t have the courage to pay the price. What is the price? One must be willing to be one’s own master! Author—Chris Carley.
I’ve been listening to Zig Ziglar’s teaching, ‘See you at the top’ where he tells a few stories highlighting the keys to success and the attitude that brings it about. The key attitude is your willingness to do what many others will not do after the height of competition during the week. Zig says: “You don’t pay the price of success you enjoy the price of success!” To enjoy the price of success follow the link here
