an interesting excerpt from Bo Sanchez' ebook Choose to be wealthy.

One day, a huge alien ship arrived on planet Earth.
The aliens on the ship surveyed humankind and were
so moved by the poverty they saw. They pitied the poor so
much, they decided to help. They left behind one of their
very special chickens.
Looking around, the aliens chose Mang Pong, a very
poor farmer, to receive their wonderful gift. And in the
middle of the night, they teleported this chicken to the
backyard of Mang Pong. And in a blink of an eye, the ship
rocketed away to a far, distant galaxy.
When Mang Pong woke up the next morning, he
discovered the strange-looking feathered creature at the
back of his little hut.
“Where did that weird animal come from?” Mang
Pong asked. “It’s extra-large and has golden-colored
But then something even weirder happened. When
the chicken stood up, Mang Pong saw a shiny egg
underneath it, glimmering under the sun. The chicken just
laid a golden egg!

Boy, was Mang Pong excited.
He rushed out, sold the golden egg and bought lots
of food, new clothes and new furniture for his tiny house.
Life was great that day!
The following month, Mang Pong couldn’t believe
his eyes. Because the chicken laid another golden egg! So
he ran to town, sold again the golden egg, and bought an
iPod, a laptop, a Jacuzzi and a 60-inch plasma TV. Ah yes,
life was becoming very sweet for Mang Pong.
And when the third month came, he already expected
the egg. And he sold the golden egg and bought more
But the next day, Mang Pong grew very impatient.
He realized that he had to wait for another month for the
next egg. But he wanted buy his own personal helicopter
and his very own private helipad. He badly needed more
golden eggs.
And then he had a brilliant idea — or so he thought.
You see, Mang Pong wasn’t very bright.
He said, “Where are these eggs coming from? From
inside the chicken!”
So he grabbed the alien chicken, got his sharpest
knife, and cut it open.
But alas, Mang Pong didn’t find a single golden egg
And the alien chicken was now dead!
Mang Pong cried at the loss of his chicken and all her
golden eggs.
And slowly, the farmer had to sell his clothes, his
furniture, his iPod, his laptop, his Jacuzzi, and his wide
screen TV.

And in a year, the farmer became very poor again.
One day, as he walked around town depressed, he
met one person who had become very rich. And the man
was thanking him profusely.
“Why are you thanking me?” he asked.
“Remember the golden egg you sold me?” he said.
“Yes, of course,” Mang Pong said.
“Well, the egg hatched…” he said.
“What do you mean the egg hatched?” the farmer
“I placed it in an incubator. After 12 months of
care, it hatched and out came a chicken. A very special
chicken. It’s extra-large and has golden wings. But more
importantly, it lays golden eggs!”
Mang Pong could only stare in disbelief.
Every egg he sold — given the right conditions — could
have become a chicken.
Oh, if only he kept the eggs and made it hatch — then
he would have had many chickens laying golden eggs for
him every day.
After many years, the alien ship returned to planet
They were happy to discover some had become
The rich were those who owned chickens that laid
golden eggs.
But they were also sad that many remained poor,
including Mang Pong.

Money or Money Machines?
This is the story of many poor people.
The poor prefer golden eggs (money) rather than the
chicken that lays them (money machines).
Remember this lesson: Every golden egg has a
chicken inside.
Do you have money right now?
Inside every coin and paper bill is a money machine.
You just need to “incubate” it for sometime.
So you always have a choice.
You can “spend” the egg or you can make the egg
become a chicken.

newbie here and I'm really inspired by what I have read, and that's a lot...
nice post...
very basic principle but a lot of people tend to overlook, including me...
most of us, employed, are really living on 15th and 30th that barely meet both ends...
time to incubate some eggs and let them hatch into chickens...
this is something to teach to my kids...

Nice story. Very educational. I like this part most: "The poor prefer golden eggs (money) rather than the
chicken that lays them (money machines)."
Nothing could be more true than that.
