Work in the Same Field But Earn More

A few days ago, my computer suddenly broke down. I immediately contacted a friend who understands electronics but is a student in a completely different field. My friend solved the problem in minutes with a video call. Listening to the sound of the case was enough for him to understand the problem. I was shocked.

The world is full of awake, resourceful, educated, and gifted people. We come face to face with them every day. On the road, in the market, in the movie theater, in the stadium… They are around us.

I am always surprised how little talented people earn. I recently heard that the proportion of Americans making $ 100,000 annually is less than 5 percent. I know smart, highly educated people whose annual income is less than 20 thousand dollars.

Someone who specializes in buying and selling medical supplies told me that doctors, dentists and physical therapists are facing financial difficulties. He said: “They are one step away from great wealth.”

Most people can manage to increase their income substantially if they add another to their skills: Financial intelligence is the synergy of accounting, investment, marketing and law. Making money is easier if you combine these four technical skills.

If my friend who helped me fix my computer had learned sales and marketing skills, his income would have grown tremendously. If I were him, I would research how I could do this business online and develop it. At the same time, I would improve myself in public relations. I would learn to reach the masses with free publicity. Ultimately, I would have more opportunity to profit from my own skills. In a short time, I would be one of the “best” in this area of expertise.

I suggest you look for jobs that will help you improve yourself. Before you decide on a particular profession and become a prisoner in a rat race, you have to decide what skills you want to learn.

Once a person gets caught up in a bill-paying cycle, they’re just like little mice spinning small metal wheels. They always run, but never go forward.

There is a lot of big talk in Jerry Maguire, in which Tom Cruise stars. Perhaps the most memorable line is: “Show me the money.” But there is another line that seems most realistic to me. The sentence Tom Cruise said when he left the company. He was fired and asked all the company members: “Who wants to come with me?”. But everyone is silent, almost frozen. A woman speaks only, “I’d love to come, but I’ll be promoted in up to three months.” she says.

Perhaps this is the most striking phrase spoken from the beginning to the end of the movie. It’s the kind of word used by people working to cover their bills. We all have someone around who studied for years and then got a job with an average salary. These people look forward to the hike they will receive each year, and they are disappointed each year.

I often ask everyone: “Where is this daily activity taking you?” I wonder if they too are looking where this hard work is taking them. What awaits them in the future?

I ask you too, do you think about your future or are you looking forward to the next paycheck without questioning where you are going?

Please let me know your situation and your thoughts below.

I recommend you to read THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT SKILLS TO INCREASE YOUR INCOME.

The Difference Between Your Work and Your Business

The education system focuses on finding good jobs for young people by developing their knowledge-based skills. It shapes the lives around the salaries. After young people develop their interest-based skills, they move up the stages of education to improve their professional abilities. They are trained to be engineers, scientists, cooks, police officers, doctors, artists, writers etc. The skills they acquire allow them to join the workforce to earn money.

If you study cooking, you will become a chef. If you study law, you will become a lawyer, if you study medicine, you will become a doctor. The misconception of working in the same branch is that people forget to look after their own business. They spend their lives working in someone else’s job and making that person rich.

There is a big distinction between your job and your business. Everyone should have their own business.

To be financially secure, one has to look after his own business. Unlike your income column, your business revolves around your active column. As mentioned earlier, the first rule is to know the difference between active and passive and have active funds. While everyone cares about their income accounts, the rich pay their attention to their active column.

That’s why we hear them all too often: “I need time.”, “Oh, if I were promoted…”, “I need to work overtime.”, “Maybe I’ll get a second job.”, “I’ll quit for up to two weeks. I found a higher paid job. ”…

These ideas still related to the income column. A person provide financial security only if she uses her additional money to acquire income generating assets.

The main reason why the poor and the majority of the middle class are financially conservative and do not want to take any risks is that they do not have financial knowledge. They have to stick to their jobs. They tend to take firm steps.

For this reason, people with low income put themselves in serious financial difficulties. They sell their assets to avoid cash shortages. They start by selling their personal possessions, but the money they get in return is lower than what is written on their personal balance sheet. If they make a profit, then they pay the tax. Thus, the state gets its share of the earnings, which reduces the amount that will save them from debt. That is why the person’s net profit may be ‘lower’ than he thinks.

Start your own business. Keep working full time, but also avoid passives or personal items that lose their true value when you bring them home. Buy real active assets. A new car loses 25 percent of the price you pay as soon as you start driving. Even if your banker says your car is your number one asset, the car is not a correct asset. A trendy $ 400 basketball shoe equates to $ 150 at the first game.

Adults need to keep their spending low, decrease their passives and patiently create active funds. Parents should teach adolescents the difference between active and passive. Before teens leave home, get married, buy a home, have children, and buy everything on credit, they must begin to have active funds. Such as stocks, bonds, income generating real estates or copyrights from intellectual works like music, writings, patents and anything else that has value, generates income, or is ready to market and increases its value…

Seize The Power of Money

Today, we all have a duty to manage the money wisely in our pocket. Of course there is no need to get a bachelor’s degree in economics to have this skill. In today’s world, what is taught in schools leads people to be slaves of money. But what we need to learn is to seize the power of money. Unfortunately, they don’t teach this in economics departments.

A university diploma cannot be a remedy for financial difficulties. Graduation is actually a beginning rather than an end. For sure, we need universities for being productive members of the society. However, these institutions do not teach people to manage money or control their economic fears. Therefore, they cannot guarantee economic satisfaction after graduation.


In fact, we are all “workers”. Let’s not waste our time trying to learn how to make bundles of money or thinking about it. What we need to do is keep control of our budget. When it comes to money, we shouldn’t be trapped by our fears or desires. No matter how much we earn, if we haven’t learned to cope with our fears and desires, then we actually live as high-wage slaves.

We must learn to use our fears and desires to our advantage. We must not let these emotions hurt us. What trapping people is their own negative emotions and ignorance. It is the biggest and most fundamental cause of poverty and financial difficulties. In other words, who are responsible for poverty is not the economy, the state or the rich.

What we need to do is learn to take advantage of our emotions and understand their influence on our thoughts. 

When our boss increases our hourly wages, our desires grow and we succumb to our emotions. Many people look forward to a pay day, a raise or authorization. There is no end to these expectations.

Our desires for what to buy will never end. A better phone, clothes, the latest model car or a bigger house… As our income increases, our desires increase and we always need more money.

Desire calls us, fear takes us out of the door, and we walk away without realizing it. This is the trap.

If we can see, we won’t get caught in the traps. If we keep our eyes open on the road, we will not fall into a trap. Being awake, aware, and conscious keeps us safe from many desires and fears. We have to be honest in determining what we really need. We must always continue our effort to know and understand ourselves. When we want to own something, we must try to find out why we really want that thing. These questions can save us from falling prey to our negative emotions.
