Don’t lose sight of essentials

2017-11-30 06:01

I have realised that most people work but on the other hand they don’t know what they working for.

As discouraging as it is to wake up in the morning and go to work, it can be helpful if you have a good reason for doing so.

It is sad how many people live from hand to mouth and yet they are regarded as high earners.

You might earn well but if you don’t have something that you work for, it won’t help. It becomes meaningless.

Even poor people who had not experienced a salary for a while act in the same manner. Once they get jobs they forget important lessons and continue this hand-to-mouth system.

This kind of behaviour should be put to rest by Blacks because it is not doing us any good.

We need to start seeing money differently and make things happen so that we enrich ourselves in better ways.
