Is not expensive but you are earning less.

I was driving with a lady friend, along a rich neighbourhood when she gave this remark, "The houses and cars around here must be expensive." I replied, "No! My dear, they are not expensive. Just that you are earning less. If you could have work hard and smart, earning a couple of million every year, these houses and cars are reachable to you too."

Is a fact of life, if those who earn less, every thing is going to be expensive to them. On the hand, those who are rich, they feel most things are cheap. If we cross over to Singapore, we will assume everything is pricey and most likely we spend lesser. For the Singaporean, even those who might be low earner, they find things in Malaysia are cheap. The simple reason is, Sing Dollars are rated higher than our local RM. To be at what they are of today, their country has been working hard and smart. Their reserve is stronger and richer.

In order for the individual to feel most things as cheap, the solution is to work harder by being smarter as well. If our nation could work with the right attitude, similarly our country would be richer too. So! the next time when you can't afford to buy something, you are actually earning less and not that something is expensive. Work harder and be smarter!

Quote by Bertrand Russell, "The good life, as I conceive it, is a happy life. I do not mean that if you are good you will be happy; I mean that if you are happy you will be good."
