Honest Hard Work Pays Off


Do you still believe in magic? Do you think you can pay $24.95 for a
mail order program and make $5,000 within 30 days? Do you think you can open
a business today and quit your job in 2 weeks? Do you think you can advertise
a 1" ad to 1,000 and expect 800 orders?

It's sad that our push-button, do-everything-for-you-society has taken
away our ability to climb to the top of the hill. Those of us who do have the
stamina have to try twice as hard to "prove" we are not those other
types of people.

Let's all stop pretending we're in business and start learning how to
make it grow into a thriving, honest and reputable company. It is sometimes
hard to be completely honest in everything we do. We could tell a
"little white lie" and get that $120 bucks we so desperately need
right now. Oh, what we have to give up to be honest.

I never lived in the 1800's but I have studied their life-styles quiet
extensively. Back then - people were not afraid of hard work. In fact, it
never entered their minds to be lazy. If someone in the community was lazy,
they were considered abnormal and were given a bad name. Even as late as the
1940's, a man that didn't work to support his family was considered to be
piece of "trash."

But in the 1990's it seems that the man who doesn't work, lives on
welfare and sponges off his wife who works two jobs to make ends meet is
considered "cool." The State agencies spent millions of dollars
trying to motive him to go out and find a job and work like he is supposed to.

Employers sometimes contribute to the madness also. Since hard working
people are considered "strange" and "indifferent" in
today's society, an employer will take a hard worker and pile all the work on
them that other people should be sharing in doing. It sometimes feels like
hard working people are fighting a losing battle.

But getting something for nothing is NEVER rewarding. Sure - you can
cheat the welfare system and get free benefits for awhile, but pretty soon
they will track you down. Sure - you can sit on the couch and watch
television while your spouse goes out and works 2 jobs, but you'll never have
any true financial rewards in life.

Sure - you can work 8 hours and spend 6 hours on coffee breaks just to
get a paycheck every Friday, but you'll be the first to go when a lay-off is
administered. Sure - you can forge credit cards, set up scams, write bad
checks and steal innocent people's money, but you won't get anywhere. You
only are taking care of your needs at the present time - never building
security, pride and respect for yourself.

But hard work pays off. The rewards are not immediate like they would
be if you robbed a bank tonight, but you WILL make lots more money and
benefit yourself in the long-haul. Money is NOT everything.

Money cannot buy respect and love. A poor person running a business,
who is honest has peace of mind. A person who works hard and long hours to
give their customers high-quality receives repeat orders.

And when word gets around that you're honest and trustworthy - people
start noticing you and telling others about you. Respect is much more
important than money because of the repeat rewards it brings you. For
instance - when you think of Howard Hughes you don't think of him with

Even though he had billions of dollars, does anybody really care now?
But think about Martin Luther King or Thomas Edison. Think about some heroes
you know. Does it matter to you how much money they had? Don't you remember
them for the hard work and great things they accomplished?

Isn't contributing to society and the betterment of mankind much more
valuable than the money you have in your bank account?

Take pride in yourself. Hold your head up and do an honest day's work.
Yes - being honest has great rewards.
