MONEY MISTAKE #7: Accepting Your Salary as Your Worth

Money Mistake

The three most harmful addictions are heroin, carbohydrates, and a monthly salary.

~Nassim Nicholas Taleb

A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

~Proverbs 18:16 KJV


There is nothing wrong with earing a monthly income but in order to become financially independent, you must look beyond your salary. However, it is important to state that, many people have abandoned their talents and dreams because of the juicy salaries they earn. To be specific, salary has killed more dreams and ideas than unemployment or even death.

Honestly, salary is an attractive way of keeping you from fulfilling your vision as an individual.  Significantly, in order to become financially free, you must look beyond your monthly salary. You should not use the money you earn monthly as a the cap on your earning potential. You can make more money than your earn as a salary worker.


It is interesting the kind of statement the Bible makes about a person’s talent. The scriptures declare that a man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men. Until you start to pursue your dreams, you will just be coming before mere and mean men.

Until you start exploring your dominant talents. The moment you decide to activate your dreams and utilize your gift, doors begin to open for you and ultimately you walk into the path of wealth.


What you need to know is that, your salary represents just a minute percentage of your worth. You have more to offer than just what you get for your salary. So do not let your current salary stop you from seeking for more.

When you explore some of the ideas you have, you will amass wealth in a genuine way. And in the process, you give others the opportunity to create wealth also, as you influence many that come your away and others that hear your story.
