Timeless Strategy to INCREASE YOUR INCOME



Have you ever wondered why its so difficult to get a raise or earn more money?

Its because most people are not willing to put extra time and effort on important things.

They opted to put their focus on entertainment such as watching TV, movies, playing games, surfing the internet and others.

There is no problem doing these things and even me I used to do these. But we need to have limitations and set time for self or personal development.

Last year, while I’m watching late night News in ABS-CBN.

I saw David Blaine as their guest and doing card magic tricks.

I was so amazed when he performed the magic and its very unbelievable how he did it.

In amazement of the newscaster, she happily asked; “can you teach me how to do that magic trick?”

David Blaine answered quite seriously, “do you have two years of your time?”

You see, it seems easy for us to do when we see a professional doing this kind of thing. However, behind the scene they put a lot of time and effort to practice until they succeed.

They used these 3 main ingredients to achieve their goals:

  1. Discipline
  2. Patience
  3. Commitment

I remember when I started working as an IT desktop support and I really wanted to increase my income.

I realized that I need to develop my skills. So, I enrolled myself to take a short course in IT network administration.

I’m so disciplined to attend every weekend and limit my play time.

I’m also very patient to study and finish the course in one year.

Lastly, I committed myself to really understand the course and pass the certification exam.

In less than 2 years, I was hired internally in my company as an IT network administrator without any interview because I have already got my certification.

This experience was my ticket to get hired in Singapore and earned the salary I didn’t imagine in my entire life to receive.

I’m not saying that it will take years for you to attain what you want. It depends on how much focus, time and effort you put in.

So you may ask, how can I really increase my income or earn more money?

The answer is, you must give more Value to your company or people’s lives.

You can do this by developing your self, skills and talents.

It relates to what Benjamin Franklin says, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
