After graduating from college I landed my first job as a bank teller. I was so excited! I accepted the job and started my first day of work. Here was the deal. I would work an entire day and get no money to bring home. I would then return to work the next day, work a full eight hours and then return home with no money. The following day I go to work and … you guessed it I would return home with no money. In fact I had agreed that I would work an entire month without ever receiving a dime for my work. The only thing I had was a promise. A promise from my employer that after I had worked for an entire month I would get paid. Why would I agree to this?
Well it’s simple … I believed them!
And why did I believe them?
Because everyone I knew had made the same arrangement with their employers … and it worked. I saw results. With very few exceptions the employers came through and delivered on their promise. So I worked every day as if I already had the money because I believed that I did.
