Are you a consumer or a producer? The answer to this question lies in what you do with the money that you make. Are you eager to receive this week’s paycheck to buy some new material things or to save it and put it away? If you’re saving it, what are you saving it for? I know a lot of people who are buying a new pair of $100+ shoes weekly. My question to you is, why? Why are you so quick to willingly give away your money? These are the times that we live in. People don’t know the power of a dollar. How about this…instead of buying that fresh name brand shirt, why don’t you come up with your own design? Be it a logo, a picture, a slogan, catch phrase, etc. and start wearing ONLY that. In the long run this would be cheaper than buying some name brand clothing every week, anyways. Before you know it, people will ask you where you got that shirt from or how can they get one. See how that works? Now, I’d be lying if I said it’s really that easy, but sometimes it is. Come up with something new and innovative and throw it on a t-shirt. Is there some new slang that’s starting to spread like wildfire around your town? Throw it on a t-shirt and start wearing it. Hustle up enough money until you can invest that into something else. Maybe even a full-fledged t-shirt or clothing line since you already have some clientele in that area. This is one of the privileges of living in a country like America, anybody and everybody can make something of themselves. This is the land of the hustle and grind. People from all walks of life have climbed out of the gutter and became successful. Many immigrants came to America with nothing but a few dollars and the clothes on their back and lived to tell the story to their grandchildren years later. I suppose it all comes down to who you want to be and what you want your story to be when you pass.
