Ask yourself this question. Do you go to work everyday and feel hopeless?? If so are you gonna change this feeling or are you gonna go day in and day out feeling the same way? I have a little story to tell you about Mr. Turtle.
It started one day with his boss telling him Turtle I have a Job for you. Mr.Turtle was intrigued. What do you mean you have a job for me.The owner of the company said Mr.Turtle I want to know everyday at noon what time it is. So at noon I want you to “Ring this Bell” everyday at noon for five minutes so I am aware of the time. I am going to pay you $100,000 a year salary with benefits and a car allowance. Just remember your only job is to Ring the Bell. Man Mr Turtle was on The Moon, boy my fortunes have really turned around. How can I be so lucky??
Do you ever feel this Lucky or where your glass is HALF FULL? Think of the stupidity of the job. He has to do nothing but Ring a Bell.
WATCH WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!
Lets jump six months into the future. Mr.Turtle is comfortable in his new position as the bosses alarm clock or bell ringer.
What happens next usually happens to most everyone who works for an Organization whether small or large. Turtle was in the lunch room and saw Mr. Hormel come in for his lunch at 12:15. Turtle was sitting there listening to him talk. Hormel was bragging how he pays his share holders or gives them a quarterly bonus every year and also a raise for every year for the past fifty years. This lunch room is filled with other company big wigs like Mr. Dover or Emerson or Mr.3M or Coke. They all pay raises and quarterly bonuses.
Our friend Mr. Turtle starts to feel cheated. Here he has been doing a fantastic job and been with the company Six months and no raise. He always gets his pay check on time and great insurance and so on.
“IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO SOMETHING YOU WILL MAKE SURE TO FIND A WAY. IF YOU DO NOT YOU WILL FIND AN EXCUSE!!!!!!”
But he feels cheated. Six months and no raise. Remember he only has to ring a bell. This story is kind of far fetched but really look at your own lives and you will see that it is not much different. Always wanting more or trying hard and not getting anywhere. People getting raises etc. but you can change your lifestyle to make it better. Think in the story about who was giving raises. The Kings. Mr. Turtle could save part of his salary and start a Portfolio of Dividend Champions Or Kings and soon he could be generating passive income on his own. Focus on what you can control and not what others are doing. Put Blinders on and stay focused on your own ideas and eventually you will be successful.
“ACCESS TO SUCCESS IS THROUGH THE MIND!!!!”
Remember you can start small “ONE DIVIDEND AT A TIME”
Don’t feel like the Turtle in this story. Work hard and save so you can have Financial Freedom. Like Putting Man on The Moon Financial Freedom starts with the First Step!!
