What does the word mortgage mean? It may surprise you.

Mort –
1) a note sounded on a hunting horn when the a deer is killed.
2) killing

Gage –
1) a token of defiance; specifically: a glove or cap cast on the ground to be taken up by an opponent as a pledge of combat.
2) something deposited as a pledge of performance.
3) pledge, stake, or risk.

There isn’t anything about those word meanings that give me a good feeling. How about you?

taxtime

In one day:
I was on the freeway and saw an accident.
I was in a parking lot and saw an accident
I was on the way home, two blocks later, and saw an accident.

Save 9.25% in taxes you would have paid or $9.25 per $100.
Why does this get you excited?

What about the 25% taken by force of law out of your paycheck?
What about the .38 cents/gallon of gasoline tax in TN?

sexandmoney-300x225

Why do you use sex and money as tools to get what you want?

No matter how bad it gets, I’ll always have money.
Always be able to attract a mate.
Always be able to make up for mistakes.

No matter how bad it gets, I’ll always have sex.
If it gets bad, you can always have sex and forget about your problems.

Challenge:
Next time you’re tempted to use money or sex to get what you want, try to think of another way.
It’ll make you far more resourceful in the long run.
