This week I am getting through the universal laws of prosperity from “The Richest Man in Babylon” book by GEORGE SAMUEL CLASON, which are referred to as the “Seven cures for the lean purse”.
Review chapter #7 in the book.
The Seven’s Cure: Increase thy ability to earn
I love this cure! I truly do. We as financial planners most of the time talk about how to save money, how to pick the best investment or what insurance policy our clients might need. Yet, personal development and one's ability to earn is the greatest asset one has. Wealth and money is the result of your hard work.
In his final lesson Arkad says: “The more of wisdom we know, the more we may earn. As a man perfecteth himself in his calling even so doth his ability to earn increase. Always do the affairs of man change and improve because keen-minded men seek greater skill that they may better serve those upon whose patronage they depend. Therefore, I urge all men to be in the front rank of progress and not to stand still, lest they be left behind”.
Look around, we live in the world today, where anyone can easily increase their ability to earn. Yes, I know you might be thinking: “oh she wants me to work more, I already do that”. No, I want you to think what skills and talents you have that can be put to work. Think about what you can do?
The bottom line, the more income you earn, the faster you will be able to reach your goals.
