You Always Start From The Bottom

Its no secret that you always start at the bottom and move up in life, school is usually the first step for most people. Unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth you have to start at the bottom, expecting someone to put you where you want to be is for the most part not going to happen. I may have this person another mowing job, yes a woman but I can do it, she can do it. I hear all the time what she does not have so I give her work when I hear of it, after all I started baby sitting and mowing grass for a living before I was legal to work, but when I told her that maybe these people will need someone, she come up with so many excuses, one was the yard is so big.... then she added, but how much they pay? I told her I would give her number to them and they could work it out if they wanted to use her for the job. Push, shove..... go to work and earn how high you want to go in life. You are what is keeping you where you are. So stop being scared and go for it. Have a wonderful day!

Our government offers homes to poor. Not all can be given of course. But some use that with political support to get it for themselves, children, siblings...and then we have a generation that gambles, and drinks even participates in crimes. This generation does not work...and talks arrogantly and has more children than the country can afford. No wonder tax payer wants to evade taxes. They want the money for armed forces, and infrastructure, and administration not for irresponsibly breeding lazy criminals. I am for tax evaders but do it legally. There are enough loopholes in there to laugh on the face of the tax man. I have all sympathies for poor, mind you. Subsidize their education. But don't leave anything tangible in their hands to make them lazy or irresponsible. Their food is subsidized, medication is subsidized. The middle class takes loans and struggles under EMIs, is this not discrimination?

You are so right because anything can happen in life and you have to be prepared. I remember a humorous line from the comedy The Honeymooners where Ralph said You have to be polite to the people as you're going up because they will be the same people you will meet when coming down.

It was like when I got laid off a job and couldn't find another, I started do independent landscape. True, I was getting paid very little for my efforts, but it was better than starving. I always get caught up in other people's expectations and projects, so for now, I have told them: "I'm a decade behind where I want to be, so I have to tell you 'no'!" I seem to have plenty of hurdles thrown into my way, but I'm not about to give up now. This year I'm sharing my progress with the rest of myLot. Whether I make it or not!

When I was growing up my dad's favorite saying to us was "Money doesn't grow on trees." If we wanted something, he were allowed opportunities to work to earn it -- after our regular chores were done. I think too many today have a sense of entitlement and believe the government will give them what they need if they don't have a job.
