YOU GET WHAT YOU’RE WORTH TO US: WHY AMERICANS EARN WHAT THEY DO ON THE JOB

“Do you deserve more?”


why the average

Ever wonder why the average American make the income that we do? Well, it’s complex, but also simplistic at the same time. Yes the complex part is the breakdown based on the person, the industry, the experience, the growth rate, the gender, ethnic gaps, and geographical location. But a very simple answer to why you make the money you do is based on the level of your title and your value to the organization. Your value to the organization is estimated by way of looking at how much money could they pay you by way of what you do that is of financial benefit to their company. You make $40,000, then you know what, that is your value to the company. You want more, then find a way to bring in more.

there’s got to be more

If you didn’t know any better you would think there is a catch to the whole thing. But there is no catch, looking at you and basing that off of pass performances of people in that role you are paid accordingly. And jobs know to a degree, what your input will be based off of your work. So if I give you $15 per hour, you will put in that much. Now, i I bump it to $20, you’ll work more, but there is a reason I don’t bump it. Because bumping will only make you work more because it was bumped more and not because of work satisfaction. And knowing this, here is where psychology comes into play. I know that paying someone $15, then moving it to $20 will be temporary. They will eventually get burned out with $20, and say we need $30, then $40, but what is enough. It becomes they are more dissatisfied because cost of living rises in addition to their pay. This is why you pay $15 minimum wage, then make them work on their own from there. So when you earn more, you got that bump from your own work and skill that you have to bring not a governmental initiative that focuses none on your skills. You are more of a company asset with skills.

how dare you 

When you tell someone what they are worth, they are automatically on the defensive. But the reality is, you have to look at worth. Just because you feel you’re deserving of a certain pay, does not always mean you should make more. And that is a concept difficult for so many to understand, but true. We all have a value to whoever it is we’re working for, if you’re worth more, bring more into the business.

THE VALUE OF THE DOLLAR OR SOMETHING LIKE IT: WHAT IS OUR MONEY BACKED BY REALLY?

Rolled 20 U.s Dollar Bill

“What if confidence is lost?”


 The United States currency has been a long subject of debate. And that debate is, what is our money really worth? Because in reality it’s just paper. And the real confidence is in our economy. Because if our economy begins to decline, then what are these sheets of paper? Well then, could it happen? Could we see America fall into a second Great Depression twice in America’s history? With the industrial age looking more and more like something of the past, what is going to replace it? It’s going to be this new technological space. Yet we have an uneducated populace who are not only unaware, but not willing to learn this new way. And with that comes uncertainty within the market. And now what you have is uncertainty in our dollars as well. So what do you do about the potential value of the American dollar falling or even collapsing?

The fear of this could send the nation into a tail spin. We are already behind the Euro and the British Pound. And with China now the largest economy in the world, who knows, their currency could be next to surpass us. Then, once all these different currencies start to pass us, can we truly say we are still this great nation? How are we such a great place when places that are seen by us as not as great surpassing us? That image dies and so does the status of America. Now, am I saying brace yourself for a catastrophe, no. But we should be mindful of the sensitivity of the market. Let’s say though for a minute that our system does collapse. What could this mean for the countries who we owe money to in debt? Would this mean that we would have to start cyphering off assets we do have left.

These various assets could mean natural resources, or better yet, land. Imagine the chaos if people found out that we no longer were in control of our land anymore. Like I said, this is still a stretch, but it has happened before. And in the end, that is the true fear. Chaos has happened once before. And for some reason, we as people tend to always forget history and repeat the same mistakes. Hopefully, we are able to maintain our confidence in our dollars and our economy can grow. Otherwise, we’ll fall victim to our own lack of hubris and ignorance.

THE KNOW: HOW POVERTY IS MORE OF A MIND FRAME THAN MONEY

Related image

“Getting out, does not guarantee you’ll stay out.”


As a young man, I grew up under the poverty level here in the United States. Now, if you would have told me that at a young age, I would not have believed you. But once I became an adult, I decided to look back and research how much money my mother made on her job. And for a single
Related imageparent household making the income that my mother made, we were classified as an impoverished family. Yet, we always had food, clothing, and a roof over our heads. Little did I know, that my mother was one rainy day, one sick day, one bad break away from us being homeless. So is poverty about money alone or is it a mind frame?

I come from a family of poor people. And it’s generational poverty; whereas my mother and father were poor, their parents were poor, and so forth. As a matter of fact, my family on both mother and father side have been poor since slavery in America. So for well over 200 years of American history, we Related imagehave lived through poverty. Understandably so how we could have in the past given the historical accounts; both slavery and Jim Crow. And we can also point to other social-economic policies aimed at certain ethnic groups in certain communities. But that aim was mainly to aid White communities, and Black neighborhoods. Now, a large portion of White men and women are suffering.

So is it still about race, yes and no. I feel race can be used, yet it’s bigger than that today. The struggle is real and everyone is feeling it. So how, how do you bring yourself out of poverty? And my theory is that poverty is more than just not having money. It’s about knowing how money work and how Related imageyour money work. And that requires putting yourself in the know. And the know is whatever it is you’re seeking to accomplish in this world. For example, professional athletes make it financially out of poverty, yet their minds are still in poverty. So the majority of them wind-up broke after playing professional sports. Why, well because they don’t know anything about money.

Athletes are beneficiaries of the lottery effect , where they get overnight wealth. And lack of knowledge places them back into poverty. A lot of Americans don’t understand how, but more of them would do the same. Image result for lottoBecause it’s not only spending habits that land them back into poverty, it’s financial investors and managers mismanaging funds. So what about the American who does not get their start in sports/entertainment? Where do they look first when trying to overcome their struggle? And the tough question is, there is no one place to look. You have to adopt a certain mind frame for finding and making an income; as well as retaining a standard of living.

And in the end, that’s something that people cannot grasp hold of; the mind frame. You can’t teach it, and you can’t fully learn. You just have to have a mind that is built to understand how to put yourself in a know space. ThereRelated image will always be people giving you a blueprint. But you’re not supposed to just runaway with it, more so, you should be using it to build your own vision. Their blueprint is just a basic template to get you started. Yet people at times are even offset by the blueprint of another person. And often will reject you for offering the blueprint. Nonetheless, this getting out of poverty game is psychological. And if the mind is not right, neither will be your standard of living.
