The farmer and the three fools.
There once were three men who work for a farmer. Each week, the farmer paid each man 4 pieces of gold to work his fields and harvest his crops. One day, the old farmer realized that if he fired one of the men and paid the other two an extra piece of gold, the two remaining men happily worked even harder for him to pick up the slack.
The farmer saved 2 pieces of gold each week by getting rid of the one man. The remaining two men worked harder than ever because of their pay raise. They believed the farmer was a great and caring man who paid them well.
After a year, the old farmer had 24 gold pieces now saved up from firing one of the men. He uses the money to buy a horse and a plow to work his land.
The farmer fires the two remaining men that work for him. He then hires and even younger man who is willing to do the easy work of plowing the fields on a horse for only two gold pieces a week.
The farm once had to pay 12 gold pieces a week to have his crops and land tended to. But after investing in some new equipment and thinking outside of the box, he was able to make good investments in new resources.
Now he only spends 2 gold pieces a week to have his land tended to. He fooled the three men and slowly became rich in the process.
The same story applies today.
Like magicians, employers distract us with an allusion in front of us. And the whole time that we are distracted by the trick in front of us, they are executing the hidden agenda behind their back.
No job is safe today. Your employer is constantly thinking of ways to make more return on their investment and a cut costs. You are an expendable number that will inevitably be replaced by cheaper labor, more advanced technology, or some form of automation
If you don’t believe me they just look at the amount of jobs that have been outsourced to different countries over the past 20 years. Think about how many jobs have been eliminated due to automation such as phone answering systems and computer programs.
You might think that you work for a compassionate employer right now, but the day is coming when they fuck you over.
Besides, if you owned a company, wouldn’t you do the same? I’m sure most of us would like to sit here and say that we would treat our employees great and have a wonderful place that operates a fair business. But when it comes down to money we’re going to cut our losses.
Evolve or fade into obscurity.
Today is the day when you need to decide how you’re going to set yourself up with protection from the system.
The only answer is entrepreneurship
When most people think of being at entrepreneur, they typically envision investing hundreds of thousands of dollars into a business and hoping it succeeds. This This is not necessarily true anymore with the power of the Internet .
Internet based businesses such as blogging only requires a ridiculously small investment and can make alot of passive income if done correctly.
If you have a business idea, you can put it up a website, have the products production outsourced, and pay somebody a little bit of money to ship your products out. All you have to do is put forth the effort managing the business .
Business is not the same as it was 28 and 30 years ago. There are a million opportunities that are available today that weren’t even available 10 years ago. Hundreds of thousands of people continue to work their jobs while starting their side business. They work on it every day with persistence to achieve their success.
Haven’t you ever wanted to start your own business and live life on your own terms?
One of the first things you have to do is get out of the mindset that there is a shortage of money out there. There is no shortage of money. For god sakes, we print the shit. The correct state of mind is to ask yourself what can you do to get more of the money that is yearning for you to take it.

So when the day comes when a computer program takes over your job, will you look back and wish that you had started in entrepreneurship five years ago? There’s no better time to start than right now. Because the future is not far away.
