Work hard now pays off later in life
I believe that working hard now pays off later in life. I have always believed this statement ever since I got my first job. My father always told me the real world would kick my butt, but I never believed him until now. I used to work for an ice company in Batesville called Cube Ice. It was very hard work but the pay was good. The company took out money to go towards my retirement and out for taxes. My grandfather told me from experience that the money that they take out for retirement helps out later on in life.
So, I started working harder and harder to ensure that I will have an easy and laid back future. I do believe that working hard now will pay off later on in life.
My father started a steady job when he was 15 years old. He is now 41 years old and still working there. He told me that he will work all day as long as when he retires he won’t have to. My father will retire when he turns 65. He told me he is looking forward to retirement more than anything. He works his butt off every day to provide for his family. My grandfather is 65 years old and is still working. He told me he would not stop working until he has to. He has been working all his life. He had to drop out of 5th grade to go and work for his father at welding. I believe that it is time for him to retire and take a break. He told me that he believes retirement would be good for him, but he just can’t retire yet. He said as long as he is able to work, he will. He told my dad and me that if we ever feel like we need to stop working then to work harder. My grandpa gives me a lot of great advice, and I believe everything he tells me. I’m 19 years old and he told me that working is hard now but, it sure helps out a lot when you get older. I told him that I’m not going to stop working until I retire, because I need to provide help for my family and myself....
