It seems fitting that Thanksgiving would be near the end of the year because it provides an ideal opportunity to reflect back on the year and all the things to be thankful for. Of course, that’s just the official holiday. Truth be told, being continually thankful is the secret to happiness and contentment. We really have more to be thankful for than celebrating one day a year can accomplish.
If we were to conduct a survey asking people how many consider themselves rich, very few would answer yes. In reality though, you are! You just aren’t likely to realize how filthy rich you actually are because you are surrounded by other rich people. How do we know this? Simple statistics.
If your household income is $40,000 a year or more, your income is in the top 4% of the world’s population. 96% of all the households in the world earn less money than you! If your household income is $50,000 a year or more, you are in the top 1% which should have you doing back flips.
You probably never expected a roofing company to inform you how rich you are but we like delivering good news. It might help to remember this when you need a new roof for your home. That’s a problem only a rich person can have.
When you think about it, most of your problems are rich people problems. If your car needs service, rich people problem. If the Internet is running too slow on your computer or device, rich people problem. If your movie disc arrived cracked, rich people problem. You get the idea.
The list of things to be thankful for goes well beyond just the economic advantages we get to enjoy. Victors Roofing will be celebrating this Thanksgiving knowing that we got to provide a worry free roof for more homeowners than ever this year. Many Thanksgiving celebrations will be taking place under those roofs.
Each time we do a roof, we derive the satisfaction of doing our best so we’ve solved another rich people problem in a way that earns us another friend who will recommend us to other homeowners. That makes us richer than money can buy.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday and we hope you’ll do like we do, be thankful every day.
