Growing beyond your salary – Part 2
Growing beyond your Paycheck should be one of your goals. If you want to experience extraordinary increase in your income this year, you have to be willing to go the extra mile. You have to do more than you have done, in order to see more than you have seen. Some Financial Experts believe you need at least 4 Streams of income to secure your Financial Future (Gen.2: 10-14). But make your INVESTIGATION sufficiently before you INVEST your hard-earned money into any investment.
“The gullible believe anything they’re told; the prudent sift and weigh every word.” Prov.14: 15 MSG.
Quit pretending that you know everything, so that you can learn the things you don’t know, that you need to know. Take your time to understand the width and depth of the business you’re about to embark on, in order be well informed. Beware of “Get-Rich-Quick” way of thinking. Most of “Get-Rich-Quick” schemes are Traps that lead to Financial Wreck.

Don’t let any Friend or Family member rush you into the business and investment you haven’t taken enough time to study. Be slow on anything that is taking your hard-earned money, but isn’t yielding result after a long time. Avoid vain speculations and seek genuine information from trusted and experienced people. I lost money several years ago because I listened to vain speculations and hurried into investments. This is why most financially experienced people don’t hurriedly jump into any investment and business. Some of them have burnt their fingers in the past and so have learnt their lessons. If you have lost money of recent to any of these “Get-Rich-Quick” investments, don’t give up on yourself. You are not alone. Most Financially Successful People are Ex-Failures. They have failed and failed, until they learnt the most secured ways of making money.

This is one of the most powerful Philosophies of my Life. I have learnt to get up STRONGER, each time I fell. Get up and learn from your financial mistakes and misfortunes. Be wiser and be more careful when you are bouncing back. A knockdown is not equal to a knockout.
