The month of December. What a sweet month for all salaried personnel, employees, workers, and professionals.
It’s the time of the year when people receive all the perks and bonuses from the company they are working for. They work hard all year long and now is the time that they receive what is due them.
But don’t you know that your Christmas Bonus is tied up and determines your success in life?
Shocking, isn’t it?
In this article I will show you the direct link between the Christmas bonus your receive and your success (or failure) in life.
Christmas Bonus and Your Reaction
Let me ask you this: When you receive your Christmas bonus, what is your reaction?
No, I’m not asking if you are happy or not. Of course, everyone of us are happy when given an extra money.
But I’m asking what is your mindset when your receive cold cash in your hands.
Are you mind imagining those things you can buy? Maybe a nice gadget for you or your loved ones?
Maybe a fine dining for your loved ones? How about a nice vacation for the family?
What about a new dress, watch, etc.?
Or maybe, an extra money represents for you an answer to pay off your debts?
Those are all nice use of money. But they all represents an outflow, a spend mentality.
The money you receive are gone in an instant. Of course, you receive something in exchange for the money.
But come to think of it. Isn’t it a lot better if you have a plan to make your money grow?
Money – A Seed For Growth
Robert Kiyosaki, a well-known author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, is an advocate of delayed gratification. The same is true with Bro. Bo Sanchez, the founder of TrulyRichClub, a club advocating an abundance mindset to help members achieve financial freedom.
What is delayed gratification? Wikipedia defines it as follows:
Delayed gratification, or deferred gratification, is the ability to resist the temptation for an immediate reward and wait for a later reward. Generally, delayed gratification is associated with resisting a smaller but more immediate reward in order to receive a larger or more enduring reward later.
Did you see that? It’s an ability to resist an immediate reward for a later reward.
Usually the immediate reward is much smaller for a person to sacrifice it for a larger and more enduring reward at a latter time.
Getting the mindset of Robert Kiyosaki, it goes like this:
Assuming he happens to want a nice car and he has the money to pay for it right away.
But for Robert, he will delay giving himself that car so as to use the money in buying the car and grow that instead.
He asks a question to himself like this: how can I use what I have right now to grow so that I can buy what I want with the interest or growth?
You Mind – Your Powerful Ally To Make Your Money Grows
Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. – Matthew 7:7-8 (RSV)
Usually when a person challenges himself and ask questions, the subconscious mind gets to work for an answer.
But you have to ask the right question.
You also must be clear in what you are asking for you to receive an answer.
Let me repeat that, you must be clear in what you are asking before you receive an answer.
You also must be ready and committed to receive an answer.
Readiness requires that you exert some effort.
Are you doing what you can to get the answer?
You will discover that the answer can take many forms.
Probably, you can read a good book.
You may discover a nice seminar or even a webinar providing you great insight.
In today’s internet world where the information is readily available, you can dig in and do some research.
Let me offer also to you this website. It contains many ideas for you to grow your money. First and foremost is my #1 Recommended Training Program.
Your Christmas Bonus Determines Your Success
A person with an abundance mentality has this ability to make what he receives to grow.
He sees and seizes an opportunity. He also seeks an opportunity when it appears there is none.
He is not contented just to receive the fruit of his labor and enjoy it right away. He uses the seeds of the fruit so as to make the seeds produce more and larger fruits in due time.
Yes, he will then enjoy much larger fruits. After all, there’s a time for everything.
As a conclusion, always ask yourself these questions:
“What am I doing to improve my life? Do I have now the resources to make some wise decisions for my future and that of my family?”
Your Christmas bonus can really determines your success.
You can enjoy it right now, right away, then come next year, toil again working for money instead of money working for you.
The better alternative would be is to use your Christmas bonus (maybe even just a part of it) to invest and improve your lives.
Learn how money works and how to make it grows.
Hire or look for a mentor. Every successful person has a mentor or coach.
Attend a seminar or even webinar.
Look and attend some business events so you can have some business ideas to start with.
Explore if Online Business is for you. Actually this is much easier than starting a traditional brick and mortar business.
It’s more fun challenging your mind to learn new things.
Believe me, ignorance is much more expensive in the long run. It will keep you where you are for the rest of your life.
You deserve more in life. Think about your dreams. What you do now can either make you achieve your dreams or not.
The bottom line is, your mindset towards the Christmas bonus (or any money) you receive, will make or break you.
All the best,
