And yet most people are trying to get or keep a job.
Well, maybe hindi lahat gustong yumaman. They want a simple life living in a simple home and that’s all right.
But the problem is, every year, the purchasing power of your money weakens. In short, ung dating nabibili mo lang ng isang daang piso noon, ngayon P150 na.
And every year, your buying power as consumer weakens even more. We call it inflation.
Your salary can’t catch up.
According to a recent study, salary increases 4% every year on average. The inflation is between 2%-3% every year.
Lamang ka lang ng 1%. Yun e kung may increase ka
That’s why you’re struggling to make ends meet. You’re trying to save money but they simply don’t work. Tumataas lahat maliban sa height mo.
You’d like to get a health or life insurance but then, di talaga kasya.
That’s the BIG problem for most people living pay check to pay check.
For most, what they’ll do is work even harder to hopefully things will change. Yung tipong kahit di na matulog kung pwede lang.
But then again, things are not changing for the better.
Instead, lalong lumalaki ang utang. Dumadami ang bayarin. Nagmamahalan ang bilihin.
What are you going to do?
Then your officemate asks you to join a new “business opportunity”. Pioneering ka.
They’re registered sa SEC, DTI, Baranggay, City Hall, pati sa planet Mars registered din sila.
Marami ng naging milyonaryo sa kanila. Power!
May dating taxi driver. Dating OFW. Dating security guard. Mga di nakapag tapos ng pag aaral. Lahat sila naging milyonaryo.
E kapos ka sa pera…
So, sumali ka naman. Besides, P3,000 lang magiging milyonaryo ka na.
Until you realized that you must recruit friends, relatives, neighbors and be part of this pyramiding scheme.
Lahat ng upline mo umaasenso, nanalo ng award sa stage, pero ikaw…
Sky flakes at tuna pa din lunch mo.
After a while, you’ll realize only 2% of the pyramid are making money. They’re getting rich from your efforts. But you?
You’re still stuck in the same situation. Sahod, bayad ng bills at bayad ng utang. Kapos pa din sa pera.
Then, tumawag naman ung bayaw mo.
Pwede ka daw mag pa-alaga ng biik. Piggery business. Magbigay ka lang ng pera at sila na magpapa laki ng biik.
Pag naging baboy na…
Bebenta nyo then share kayo sa profits.
And then, months after, magkakasakit ung biik. Mamamatay. Or hihingi pa ng pera ung nagaalaga para sa feeds.
E ano naman ang alam mo sa piggery business, so you give them money.
Months after, wala ka ng feedback from your investment. Again, nawala na naman ang investment mo, nasayang oras mo, umasa ka sa wala…
Pauwi ka galing sa office nag Uber ka.
Then you read sa Facebook how much people are making money from Uber. The business must be good.
Naka brand-new car ka na, may kita ka pa. Pag Sunday, you have a nice car for your family to use.
Sosyal, naka kotse.
30 days after, kailangan mo ng mag hulog sa car loan mo. Na leche na.
Palabas lahat ng pera sa gas, toll gate, pocket money, and maintenance. Kailangan pala you need to drive at least 12 hours a day to make money from this. Taxi driver talaga peg mo.
Few months after, pagod ka na sa pagda-drive. Masarap pang nasa office ka na lang.
Well, naka utang ka na sa bank e. Mahirap na umatras. Pride na pinag uusapan dito. Pinost mo na brand-new car mo sa Facebook.
In short, you have a car but you have a big loan and you’re still stuck in the same rat race.
Trabaho, sahod, bayad utang, trabaho, sahod, bayad utang…
OK. Enough of these stories.
What I just shared with you are the same stories I keep hearing from my subscribers.
They’ve invested time and money in many businesses promising them a better life.
But they NEVER invested on themselves. They can afford to buy a nice gadget but buying a P500 book is TOO expensive.
Where in fact, it’s more expensive to NOT invest in your own education. All the time and money you’ve wasted because you didn’t invest on how to become better at what you do.
That’s why I started blogging about business in 2012. To help you and others to get an education that traditional schools can’t give you.
Now, it’s 2017.
Are you going to have the same old “failure” stories like everyone else? Or are you going to finally educate yourself and change the direction of life and experience freedom.
As, I always say, it’s your call.
To your freedom,
P.S. Di ka malas. There’s no such thing. You just need education on whatever business you decided to pursue. Find a mentor. Someone who’s been there and done that.
