The burden of the rich and how everyone else must be thankful

Blog Living

The burdens of those in caught in the corporate rat race are not always easy. Although they lead a better existence than those living in the slums or in the rainforests, they face what they would say as greater dangers than a slum resident would ever know. Corporate folks place their lives on the line – their personal savings held in the ever-volatile stock market, or the endless uncertainty of their year-end bonus. Such risks could lead to the downfall of their homes, yearly overseas vacation, expensive golf sets, and family.

Anxiety touches the hearts of the corporate folks who must stand for what they hold dear but what is vital is that they stand above the ordinary people – to lead and show or incite confidence.

But then no one is truly ordinary, isn’t it?
