Don’t bargain your Life away

In Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” I read the following poem by an unknown author that hits the nail about us not believing in our dreams and therefore not asking for them fully. It is sad how little so many of us value ourselves.

I bargained my life for a penny

And life would not pay more,

However I begged at evening

when I counted my scanty store.

For life is a just employer;

He gives you what you ask,

But once you have set the wages,

Why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menial’s hire,

Only to learn, dismayed,

That any wage I had asked of life,

Life would have willingly paid.

Please, don’t limit yourself in any way. Don’t just ask for a penny. Write down your wildest dreams in as much detail as possible and start living the possibilities and opportunities that will come your way.
