It makes sense that Thanksgiving is near the end of the year because it gives us an opportunity to look back on the year and everything to be thankful for. But that’s just the official holiday. The truth is, being always thankful is the secret to happiness and fulfillment. We really have more to be thankful for than we can celebrate on this day.
If we asked people how many consider themselves rich, very few would say yes. But the truth is, you are! You just don’t realize how very rich you actually are because you are surrounded by other rich people. Why we say this? It’s just simple statistics.
According to Washington Post’s Global Income Calculator, a $50,000 annual income in the United States will put you in the 99th percentile globally for per-person income, meaning that 99% of all the households in the world earn less money than you! You are in the top 1% which should have you doing somersaults.
So why does a roofing company remind you how rich you are? Because it might help to remember this when you need a new roof for your commercial building or your home. That’s a problem only a rich person can have, right?
When you think about it, most of your problems are rich people problems. Car breaks down, rich people problem. Slow internet connection, rich people problem. Leaking roof, rich people problem. You get wheat we mean.
The list of things to be thankful for goes far beyond the financial advantages we get to enjoy. Alta Roofing & Waterproofing will be celebrating this Thanksgiving knowing that we got to provide new roofs for more building owners and home owners than ever this year, so they can safely enjoy many Thanksgiving dinners under those roofs.
Every time we build a roof, it makes us proud to have solved another rich people problem and in the process we earn another friend who will recommend us to other building owners and home owners. 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!
