You don’t want to work ?
The reason most people go to work is that they need to provide and pay for stuff every month. Which is a shit reason to work, I tell you that.
I can completely understand that you need to work to provide for yourself and your family. Those are things you need to keep up and if you like your job then you will enjoy that.
But wouldn’t it be better if you can build something for yourself and not stuck to a 9 – 5. At least build something next to your job so you can have ‘more’ control over your life.
When you control more in life, you have more choices and you can provide a way better life for your family. Once you got have that, you can do what you want.
A lot of people get payed good money but they waste it on dumb shit. So the first choice you have to make is to get out of that sticky situation. You maybe got $2.500 a month coming in your bank account and wasting $3.000 a month… Wtf are you doing?
First get insight how much is coming in and where the hell you are spending that $3.000. Spending most of it on your Housing or your Car? Check this out:
When you got that figured out, find a way to sell those things and find a cheaper alternative. You have to live like nobody else does, once you get out of that negative situation, you can live life like nobody can.
And don’t even get me talking about credit card debt.
Get out of that situation now… you are making somebody else very rich, giving them 17% every time you pay your bill. Its insane.
Mostly its bullshit crap you could have payed cash for if you just delayed getting that new iphone, iPad or tv for a few months. That ‘new‘ thingy is by the way not ‘new‘ in like 2 months. After those 2 months Apple is already busy thinking about the new marketing strategy, so you can swipe your bondage card once again. Swiping yourself to work another 50 hours this week for that fucking phone….
Get rid of it.
Then save all of that money you don’t spend anymore. Once you have some money you can buy yourself the freedom of choice. To choose a better job or no job and focus that 50 hour a week on your own business. If you have $30.000 in the bank and little to no expenses you can go your own way.
You can also choose not to work for sometime and experience free time for traveling or experiences.
A big but,
there is a double-edged sword with ‘not’ working.
If you think drinking pin a colada all day on the beach is something to live for, your living a very shallow life. You don’t want to die away that way, you need a purpose in your life and the best way is creating something. Once you build something ‘Great’, you can use that to inspire others and give back, like Arnold Schwarzenegger always said.
And this is true, I’m not some old grey guy that is giving you this advice. But once I helped somebody with something, I always feel great. Especially if you can find somebody that takes it at the correct way.
When you see this person thanking you for whatever you meant for them, you get the greatest feeling ever.
And this is the ‘purpose’ of good work.
No matter in what way you achieve this, through a ‘job’ or at your own ‘business’ .
Personally I believe your own business is way better, because there is no BOSS holding you off on your decisions.
in ‘Your’ business, you are the one making the shots. Not some jerk that can hold you back just because you wasn’t on that team building day, kissing his ass.
You know that feeling right? Your girlfriend, boyfriend, son or daughter comes to you, because they want some quality time with you. Your really love to go and cuddle or whatever you are into. Spending just time right? We’ll aint gonna happen because you need to be going or else your gonna late for work. Come on, that’s no life!
Enjoy your work, if you don’t, find an other way. Don’t give up, because you have your entire life the time to find out. Ain’t nobody too young or too old to start something.
The thing that you need to start is in your ‘gut’. You don’t know what you need to do? Well you already know every time you ask that question. What is the biggest thing you like and love doing? The thing that everybody comes to you for. You are the expert at that ‘thing’.
Selling furniture, fixing cars or cutting grass. Whatever you can think off, you can monetize on that.
So, get out of debt, be a minimalist, find a way to become good at something and give back!
That’s the correct reason to go to ‘WORK’.
Stay busy and creating,
