10 reasons why you shouldn’t get a job
Jobs are great, for some. Chances are, if you’re a business-minded person, the idea of getting a job in the “rat race” seems like a very unattractive idea. Millions of Internet scams advertise that you can earn thousands of dollars a week just by signing up for their program. The reason they are successful is that many people realize that having their current job is not living their dream and they hope this is an easy way out. They feel they are not living to the fullest. They are not LIVING INFINITELY. However, if you’re reading this far, I know a thing or two about you. One, you have enough knowledge to know yourself well enough to think “I can afford to live a lifestyle on my terms.” Two, you’ve realized that working for someone else isn’t working for you and you’re ready to explore your options. Don’t wait any longer: the top 10 reasons why you shouldn’t get a job.
10. You don’t like to feel possessed. Many people don’t like the feeling of being completely owned by another, we inherently have a sense of independence. Jobs provide a false sense of “job security.” Job security is not being able to be fired at a given time by the will of another.
9. Help the economy. Economies thrive in competitive environments. When imagination and ideas flourish, societies improve. Entrepreneurs help the economy by fighting monopolization with their ingenuity.
8. Your dreams will never come true. Many people perform the same activities day in and day out (largely due to their employer’s restrictions) with no hope of achieving their dreams. Do you have a dream of traveling the world, not working every day, or starting a charitable foundation? Chances are you won’t win the lottery, take action today.
7. You are a leader at heart and can make a difference if you get the chance. Entrepreneurs are leaders in our society. If you want to make a difference and believe this deep down in you, boldly step forward and be an agent of change.
6. Enable self-development. Nothing restricts self development like having a tough employer who sucks the life out of your potential. The mind and body are powerful tools that we have, but many go through life without the opportunity to use them to their fullest.
5. You don’t have a boss on your shoulder. Many of us don’t like being told what to do. Unfortunately, many face-to-face bosses have trouble asserting their authority due to some form of lack of competence, inferiority, and a host of other leadership issues. This usually results in a poor work environment that fosters resentment instead of productivity.
4. Earn more money. When I was younger I worked at a country club. Who were the members? Almost all of the members (with the exception of a few doctors) were business owners. Business owners control the wealth within our society, so should you.
3. Let capitalism work for you. Our economy is set up to reward risk takers, entrepreneurs, and those with opportunistic drive. Our great country enjoys more economic success in all classes than any other country in the world. Harness the ingenuity of “the corporation” and use its profits to create wealth.
2. There is not enough family life. Working for “the man” can ruin your family. Too much work puts a strain on relationships. If you don’t have enough time to spend with the people you love in this world, be proactive and make a change.
1. Exchange time for money on someone else’s terms. Many of the points I’ve mentioned come back to the point that exchanging your precious time (you only have one life) for someone else’s money is a system that doesn’t work for them.
There are many ways to create money and many more yet to be discovered. My challenge to you is that you take that risk. Those who fail usually say they didn’t regret doing it, even if they end up working for someone else.
