Complaining about income, but what’s the outcome?
People complain about being broke nowadays and have pity parties about how terrible the economy is, but some of these same people aren’t doing anything to try to change that. I personally don’t understand how someone can walk around with no money in their pockets and be content with that. It seems as though people in this country (I would say world, but I can only speak about where I’ve been), have become lazy and expect other people to do things for them instead of getting out and making things happen for themselves. Yes, I agree, jobs have declined majorly over the past few years and the economy is looking a little rough, but that doesn’t stop a man that wants to eat. If someone presents an opportunity to you, you should take that offer seriously, because you never know what you can get out of it. I find myself offering and suggesting business or financial ideas to people, and they either laugh, or just brush it off like there’s nothing to it. It really stuns me sometimes because I’m thinking only if these people knew what the outcomes would be. So the moral of this message is, if you’ve tired of being broke, never pass up an opportunity until you’ve fully gave it some thought and/or tried it out. Because you may be passing up an opportunity of a lifetime!
