And so should you.
Should you ever forget to think big, should you ever feel that you are thinking too big, it will do you well to remember this poem from 1918 by Jessie B. Rittenhouse.
You will get that for which you ask. So why are you only asking for “a penny”?
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no 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 paid.
—Jessie B. Rittenhouse (1918)
Always remember to get for yourself the best of everything!
Have fun … Tony.
PS – The best way to “ask for a raise”—to get the best of everything—is to tune in, unlock, and attain.
