Paying taxes is similar to the picture above…you either see dead fish or an incredible meal in the works! It’s all about perspective!
No one likes paying taxes, and I don’t recommend you pay a dollar more than you have to. BUT, let me offer 3 reasons we should change our perspective on them:
- We pay taxes to have the right to live in, arguably, the greatest country in the world. We are free to work, not work, move around, and control our lives to a certain extent. Not many people around the world can say this.
- Most Americans pay a relatively small % of their total income in taxes.
- Working and earning an income provides a significant source of satisfaction for most people. Let’s be thankful for that opportunity rather than focus on the downside (taxes) that come as a result.
