The longer you take to increase your income, the more money you will run out of in your lifetime.

Many people will be hesitant to ask for a raise, start a business, get a part-time job, or look for a better-paying job because they’re waiting for a golden moment that never comes.

I increase my income every year. Not out of greed, but because I want to be able to give more, do more, and break financial barriers.

If your income has remained relatively the same over the past few years, it means that you are not progressing professionally and financially, which means that you are stagnating.

To earn more, you must be more.

To do more, you must earn more.

To give more, you have to earn more.

The goal of earning more should never be to consume more, which leads to emptiness and temporary increases in income.

Focus on serving others more and you will notice a big change in your income.
