This is All the Company Pays You
Employee: I only make this much money.
Friend: Isn't there other people in the company that make 2,3,4,5 times more than you make?
Employee: Well yes there are others who make more than I do.
Friend: Well then if there are others who make a lot more money at the company then this is all the company pays you.
If you were more valuable wouldn't the company pay you much more?
Employee: Well I suppose so.
Friend: Well it is not the company we need to work on then. It is you.
Another thing I thought was quite real was don't say I cannot afford something. Think about how you can afford it.
Then suddenly opportunities will present themselves over time so you will afford it. Never think negatively or you will never have any hope of getting something you want.
I just thought I wanted to post something like that.
