Just shooting another quick blog post. I’m at the Social Preppers Expo in Dalton Ga today. I came across an email that was talking about Jim Rohn and the phrase that he heard from his mentor when he was only 25 years old that changed his life forever. When I heard it from Jim Rohn the first time it made a profound impression on me as well. He said,
“Profits are better than wages. Wages will make you a living; profits can make you a fortune.”
You know it is a bit difficult to get rich on wages, but anybody can get rich on profits. Profits change your whole attitude, even if you start part-time.
Whether it’s part time on your entrepreneurial business, network marketing company or service business.
It can be a landscape business in the summer or hanging Christmas
lights in the winter. It can be training, consulting or tutoring. It can be your hobby such as painting, writing, crafts, woodworking, computers or cooking. But once you start investing even part time effort into your own business, you will find how much more exciting it is to get up in the morning and go to work on your fortune, even if you’re only spending a few hours a week doing it.
How empowering it is to be able to go to work on your fortune every day rather than going to work to pay the rent.
Now – it is noble to go to work to pay the rent, but if you could also parcel out part of your time – go
to work to make your fortune.
Your whole attitude changes; your spirit changes. It is in your voice. It is in your face. It is in your gestures. And then you can say, “I am now working full-time on my job and part-time on my fortune because I found a way to make profits.”
