More incomes per house

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Remember “The Waltons”?  Three generations living together. Today it seems the number of people in each household is getting smaller.  A single income must support the mortgage/rent, utilities, property taxes, furniture, etc. etc.

But if more people lived together, even if they weren’t related (friends) and you had more incomes per household, you could afford to live much better.  It’s one solution…

How many incomes in your house?

Family will always be important

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

In the U.S., only 46% of teens live with their mother and father, an all-time low.  With some groups it’s as low as 17%. It’s been said that the surest recipe for poverty is being a single mother (the toughest job).

Do you think this will have an effect on the lives of the kids when they grow up?  Do you think they will do the same thing?

Correlation

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Excluding some disease and accidents, the world (other people/the marketplace), on average, is giving you what you deserve right now.

What is that?  What can YOU do to change what YOU are doing, so the world responds better to you?

Your Self-Esteem

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Your self-esteem is the most important part of your character. It is how much you like, accept and respect yourself.  It is largely determined by the relationship between your self image (how you see yourself performing/living today) and your self ideal (the way you would perform/live if you were the very best person you see yourself becoming).

How’s that relationship for you?

Self-Deception is Easy

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

The key to greater achievement in our lives is self-development; new thinking which leads to new action.  The reason we must change our minds to get different results is that we have been believing things about ourselves, other people, the marketplace and the world, that aren’t correct.  When we believe something to be true, we act as if it is.

I’m a victim, success is not for me, I can’t, they are bad people, that will take many years, it’s difficult, I am great at_______, I am terrible at ______, they have it all wrong, they owe me, etc. etc.

The problem with self-deception is that you don’t know you are deceiving yourself.  

Consider you are.

"The wealthy don't pay their fair share!"

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

You may have heard this said.  Do you know how much they do pay?  The people that say this, don’t.

The top federal income tax rate is 39.6%.  State income taxes could be another 0-10%. There are no “loopholes”.  So in my state, top earners pay 46.1% in income taxes alone, not including Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, Property Taxes, and all the taxes paid by their businesses.  Further, they match the Social Security and Medicare taxes paid by every one of their employees who work in the jobs they created.

So if (let’s round it to) 50% is not fair, what is?  And if that number is “fair”, shouldn’t everyone pay their “fair share” (the same percentage)?

46% of workers don’t pay any tax at all.  

The wealthy don’t pay their fair share?  Don’t believe it.  It’s the opposite.

A Sense of Destiny

Larry Janesky: Think Daily

Do you believe that you are here to be normal?  Maybe a little less?

Or do you believe that you are here for some special reason, to accomplish something extraordinary, and be special in some way?
