Multiple Choices?

Robert Strand

How do you plan to get the money you will need in your life? Some of you will need more than others...some of you will have more than you need...and still others will never have enough!

      moneyoncalender   So where will you get the money you will in life? Hopefully, by now you have discovered that money doesn't grow on trees! Right? Your parents have already telling you that there isn't a money tree in the backyard. Therefore, we are left with only about four methods: You can earn it...inherit it...marry it...or steal it. But stealing it is illegal and could land you in the clink and marrying it is highly unlikely. Then, inheriting it can take forever so I'd say about 99.9% of you will have to earn your money...sorry!

         How will you earn it? This is not so easy to answer. Okay, when will you earn it? You will perhaps spend about 40 hours a week for 50 weeks a year between the ages of 22 to 65 so we're talking about 86,000 hours of your life! Awesome!

         Take it from me...86,000 hours is a long time to be miserable. Most of us don't like to do things we hate...even for one hour. This choice is one of the biggest you will make. What will you do for a living that will not make your life miserable?

         So you want a job that will make you rich...maybe not happy but rich. But how much is enough? Is one million or ten million or one hundred million enough? If you are 14 or 16 or 19, everybody has the same basic needs: HEALTH and HAPPINESS, but you need to know, money cannot buy either one of these.

         My suggestion: Do what you love and the money will follow. Do what the Lord would have you do and health, happiness, joy, love and a good life with follow!
