Recently received a email from some one so saw something online talking about what I did for a living (I removed the curse words and put bleeps in there place), it is as follows
To whom it may concern
Whoever the BLEEP you are. Have you ever considered working for a living. I'm a union bridge-building carpenter working in the Chicagoland area. I make more money than anyone I know and I do it all myself without any scam. So take your scam, shove it up your BLEEP, let it fester for a while and if the rest of the world is lucky you will get colon cancer and die. BLEEP you, you lazy sack of BLEEP.
Now 98% most of the emails I get are extremely encouraging talking about how I have motivated people to move to a higher level in there life but for some reason every now and then I get a email like this one. Now I could get discouraged and think wow this guy is right why don’t I work for a living? Or I can use this as encouragement. Guess what I chose to do? We all have choice’s in life we can let other people keep us down or we can try to understand what they are really trying to say. I heard a cool analogy the other day that I think applies to this. If you put a crab in a bucket you have to put a lid on it or the crab will get out but if you put another cran in the bucket you can take the lid off because the other crabs will keep pulling each other down. That’s why they say stop being crabby hahaha. I chose to let this man lift me up not let him pull me down. I could of wrote him a nasty letter back and that was my first reaction about how what I was doing was right and telling him how rude he was. Instead I chose to take a deep breath and try to see things from his point of view. I ended up writing a thank you note for him taking the time to let me know how he felt about me. Lets examine this a little closer. This man is a very hard worker and through his social conditioning feels that the only way to make money is through sweet. His parents and role model’s in life were probably manual labor’s and so that’s all he knew. He was never thought that working smart is a much better way of working rather than hard. When he saw that I was making the kind of money that I make (Which is probably more the he makes) working from my computer and never breaking a sweet. It made him angry. He was probably thinking because of he didn’t know any better. If someone can make more than me and not work as hard as I do they must be doing something dishonest and illegal. No one ever told him that 76% of millionaires are Investors and business owners and none of them doing any manual labor. I often have people tell me to get a “real job”. That makes me chuckle lets take a look at a couple definitions of a “real job”. One example is waking up every morning when someone else tells you to at the same time drive to a building. You spent your priceless time sitting in that building for 8 hours everyday building someone else’s dream. After that the clock hits so you pick up your stuff and head home you do that everyday Monday though Friday. (for some Saturday and Sunday as well.) To find out that at the end of the month your silent partner who didn’t put anytime in named uncle same takes 50% of your pay check. You do that for 40 years (if you your lucky you don’t get let go do to down sizing or outsourcing) At the end you have 40 bucks in your back account and a crappie pension coming in every month that you only get half of because your ex wife decided that your relationship “wasn’t working anymore”! SOUND CRAZY? It does to me. That is the number way people in
