Since ancient times, our ancestors have said, “You get what you pay for,” and in this world, nothing is free. This is a fact that we have experienced, and we can see that this statement is true, especially in this market economy. It holds true from many different perspectives and angles. Everything has its own price, you get what you pay for! Let’s explore more with PMV Security services.
You get what you pay for
“You get what you pay for” is just an old saying, but it holds true for many generations to come. Indeed, our ancestors were right when they said that you get what you pay for. This statement can be understood as the idea that what we have usually corresponds to the amount of money we spend to acquire it.
There is nothing absolute in this world, but there are many things that we have to admit are true because a large majority believe in them. Just like the saying “You get what you pay for.”
“Here’s a practical example. Suppose that you go to a high-end clothing store and buy a shirt for 450,000 VND. It has a beautiful form, soft and smooth fabric, and feels very comfortable to wear. However, if you order the same shirt online for 165,000 VND (it may be a copy of the design). Although it looks similar at first glance, there will be a significant difference in color, fabric, and design. The shirt you buy online will not hold its shape and will not look as nice when worn.”
That can be understood by all of us. However, depending on each person’s choice, perspective, and ability, they will choose what suits them best. Of course, everyone wants the best, but it may not be suitable for all of us. The best thing is to choose what suits oneself the most.
How to use money effectively to pay for what we want?
The meaning of “You get what you pay for” is so broad. Therefore, each individual needs to have a clear understanding of this notion and know what is suitable for themselves.”
In most aspects, we find this statement very fitting and reasonable. It can be linked to various aspects of life, work, and even personal matters. Therefore, to make the most out of this statement, it is important to:
- Each of us needs to assess ourselves and determine how well we can meet the demands of life and work to establish a suitable standard of living. For instance, if your salary is 6 million VND and you already have a child, buying a beautiful dress that fits within that income bracket is still possible, but it requires investing more time and effort to find the right store. You cannot simply run to a luxury store and purchase a dress for 1 million VND.
- Regarding work, when you choose a job that suits your abilities, it means that you have a reason to commit to it and do so willingly. Therefore, rather than complaining about your salary or job, it’s better to maintain a relaxed attitude, and things will be much happier.
- “Same value for the same price” is based on your ability. The best is to select what suits you most. Don’t choose something beyond your capabilities and then become frustrated with it.
How about security services?
The meaning of “You get what you pay for” is particularly evident in the security industry. We can understand this notion in terms of the quality of a security guard and the quality of service that a security company provides to its clients. If you are a client considering a security company to provide security services, you should carefully read this article.”
Your value is directly proportional to your salary. It is important for us, the security guards, to properly understand this. To earn a higher salary, you must work hard and prove your competence. You are also required to have a good work attitude. It will help you produce effectivity.
However, this does not mean that a security guard with a low salary cannot have an approriate work attitude. When you go to work, no matter what you do or how much you get. You still need to show your responsibilities and complete your tasks. Since it begins, everything was agreed upon and approved by both parties.”
Clients looking for security services will “get what they pay for”
Suppose that we’re the clients looking for security services, if we offer a price that is too low, it will be impossible to expect good security guards. There are clients who require security guards to be young, good-looking, hardworking, diligent, etc., but offer a rate equivalent to that of low-skilled workers. How can they expect to have a security guard that meets all their demands?”
Some clients require security guards to speak English, be over 170cm tall, under 35 years old, etc. But when it comes to services fees, they complain that the fees are too high. Even if they pay entirely the same amount of money for the security guards, they will consider it as too low for them to accept.
A client hiring a cleaning staff member agrees to pay 70,000 VND/hour for an 8-hour workday. But when they hire security services, they only want to pay security guards one-third (1/3) of that rate. It seems that clients often assume that security guards have low salaries! The thing is: to understand and accept the value that the amount of money paid brings for each specific requirement.”
“You get what you pay for”. We must all understand its true meaning, so that both buyers and sellers feel satisfied and comfortable.”
