How To NEVER Make More Than Ten Dollars An Hour
It’s all in the way you think! The sooner you realize that, the faster your income will grow.
A while back I saw a post in my Facebook newsfeed. It had something to do with the merits of a job as a babysitter.
Being a guy who used to use them for my kids, I appreciate the value of a good babysitter. Someone who kept our kids safe and entertained.
And that value? About four or five bucks an hour, at least back in the old days!
So I responded…that’s what the market will pay…eight dollars an hour, give or take. (I adjusted for inflation.)
Boy, was I corrected quickly! It’s all the way up to ten bucks an hour!
Here’s my take on it: it’s great money…if you’re a teenager, or someone who can take that ten dollars an hour and feel like the richest kid on the block.
For someone who wants to live life abundantly, with the liberty and choices that money brings…what’s the difference?
It never occurred to the people jumping up and down on me about the two dollar difference, that their MINDSET was off.
Well, it wasn’t “wrong.” But their thoughts and emotions about money and what they were worth were locking them into an income limit of ten dollars an hour.
Here’s my question to you…
What are your thoughts and feelings locking you into?
Where is your mental and emotional ceiling on…
You may not know the answer to that question, but I promise…you have one.
If you believe it’s possible to receive more than you have now…
If you believe you are worth more than you’re living now…
If you’re willing to start on something good, for a really small investment.
(Less than an evening’s worth of babysitting wages)
Pick up a copy of HOW TO RECEIVE.
If not, that’s fine. Everyone gets to live their life however they want, as long as they aren’t hurting
But no belly aching about what you don’t have, at least not to me.
And no complaining about the economy or the job market.
Because believe it or not, when you learn HOW TO RECEIVE, you begin to create your own economy around you.

P.S. Know why babysitters – even good ones – don’t get more than ten bucks an hour (usually)? Supply and demand. If your sitter leaves, there are usually plenty of others to replace her (or him).
You are paid based on your leverage and your value in the marketplace.
Mostly you are paid on what YOU believe your worth is.
Because you will make a thousand big small choices that will determine how others respond to you…
…and how much value you bring to them…
…and how much money (and other good stuff) you’ll receive.
Decide if you want to receive more, by letting more of yourself come out to play!
