Many people live in a state of desperation rather than hope.
People are desperate for change, desperate for the impossible to happen.
We play the lottery, desperately attempting to change our financial status quo by spending money on games of luck that offer little to no chance of winning.
The truth is this: if you want your financial future to change for the better then you need make your own luck. You need to do a bit more than spending your hard earned money on a lottery ticket or the next get rich quick scheme.
Your income is your greatest wealth building asset.
If you are willing to sacrifice some time, you can use this to change your current financial standing.
I know how easy it is to turn down overtime, but this really is one of the simplest ways to earn extra income as it doesn’t involve learning any new skills, has less of an effect on your taxes (at least here in the UK) and is also a familiar working environment.
Speak to your manager or supervisor and explain that you are interested in any overtime that may be available in the near future.
Ask them to call you first for any emergency overtime that may come up or even if any future overtime needs to be planned.
Supervisors, like most of us, will always take the easy route when completing a task. If their task is to find someone to do some overtime and they know that you are reliable and will usually accept it, they will phone you first rather than risk wasting time on calls to people who will turn them down.
If you are willing to work a couple of extra shifts/ days a month you’ll find that it does have an enormous impact on your monthly income.
Stop wasting money on desperation.
Instead, change your destiny and dream big!
