Instead of buying into the normal, “Escape the 9-5” propaganda I am proud to present you with a piece of work that preaches something new. It is my opinion that you need a job or else you are a loser.
I was sitting down at my favorite cafe when I overheard an “aspiring entrepreneur” telling his associate about how he hated his current job. The man went on to say that he wanted to not have a job and instead do his own thing.
He did as most people do and blamed his job for killing his dream. His associate agreed with him and seemed to be having the same problem.
They went on to talk about how if it weren’t for their job that they would already have a profitable business and be living the dream.
The associate spoke about how he lacked the money to be able to pay his bills while also funding a house cleaning venture in which he saw an opportunity.
It was not my place to give my opinion to them as they did not ask nor was it my life. But since this is my site and you have come here to listen to what I have to say let me speak my opinion while also enlightening you.
First off let me start by saying these two men are part of the problem we face in our country and the world for that matter. These young men are a perfect example of the have-nots who blame everyone else for their lack of success while not wanting to put in the required work to get what they desire.
You see it is not their job nor their current circumstances that are preventing them from starting the businesses that they spoke of, but instead, it is much simpler.
The main problem that they have is themselves. They are the ones that are holding themselves back by being lazy, victim-minded, and not having a Solution Mindset.
Our current society expects to be given everything and feels entitled to the best. We have a society of takers that do not want to earn what they get.
Every time you turn on the TV or do a Google search you see some person selling a dream to you. So many people out there whether losing 10 lbs or making money just want a magic pill that will give them their hearts wildest desire.
To change the world we will need to set a new standard.
I propose a new idea that will be met with criticism from the Dream Sellers, “Alpha’s”, and Cockroaches.
You need a job or else you are a loser. Yes, I really believe that. If you don’t have a job then you are probably leeching off of the system or a 30-year-old that sits around smoking weed all day.
Now don’t get me wrong I do believe there are exceptions to not having a job.
Reasons to not have a job:
Disabled- There are people out there who have been wounded in wars, gotten sick/crippled, or have special needs. These people do not need jobs and should be taken care of.
Rich- If you are rich you do not need a job. More than likely you have worked for decades building your wealth and have now received your piece of the pie. You have earned your wealth and deserve to spend the rest of your days in comfort and pleasure.
Retired- You spent 20-40 years of your life working a day job and have now saved up enough money to retire. You will get to spend the remainder of your life (If you invested and saved good enough) doing as you please. You might not be able to live luxuriously but you will have comfort. I will not stand here and tell you that working a day job is the best decision as it is not, but it is better than being a loser.
But if I have a job then that means I work for another man and will never achieve financial freedom right?
In most cases of you working for another man, you will never achieve financial freedom.
I have seen people who literally stress themselves out to the point of having health problems all for a job. They stress over the following:
Will I be able to spend time with my family this Christmas?
Getting to work on time.
Making the company enough money.
Dressing in the authorized uniform.
Completing tasks by a certain time.
Impressing their manager. (Fun fact: Managers are just underpaid employees. Your manager has to do what you do, more paperwork, and manage others all for just a little more money.)
When I say you are a loser unless you have a job I do not mean just working for someone else. Isn’t it a job even if you work for yourself?
Yes, it is actually.
So many people get caught up in not ever having to worry about a job again that they get themselves trapped into never leaving their wage-slave position or by getting lazy and living off of the government.
Everyone needs a job until they don’t have to worry about money again. At which point you can either hire others to manage the businesses for you or retire to an exotic beach.
Anyone who is great doesn’t play by the rules. They don’t let their emotions get in the way of making money.
Let’s say that you see an opportunity in selling a state of the art weight-loss product to overweight women.
You might not like the idea of exploiting those women’s desperation to lose weight, but if there is a need then you best believe there is money in it.
An average person (Most Likely a Loser) will let that emotion get in their way and decide to back off of that opportunity. Now the average person has missed out on possibly thousands of dollars.
Enjoy working for someone else for the remainder of your days.
On the other hand….
A hustler see’s the opportunity and monetizes that demand. He might set up a website that allows him to generate income for each unit sold.
The hustler might also create a simple Sales Page with an eBook that upsells the weight-loss product.
How can I escape working for another man and work for myself?
Decide that you want to work for yourself and then supply a demand. Become a Producer rather than a Consumer.
It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you are a Producer.
The reason so many people can’t work for themselves is that they put way too much thought into the how instead of taking action.
What held me back for years was I would think about the following “important” things:
How can I make money online?
What is the best way to make money online?
What should I do to develop the right mindset?
What if I fail?
What if I lose my money?
Those are all good questions, but they will not put money into your bank account. It wasn’t until I stumbled upon a secret which all of the people at the top understand that I was able to start seeing success.
It is a secret that is so obvious that if you knew it you would laugh.
Since you are reading this article I will assume that you already know the secret but here it is….
It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest business idea the world has ever seen unless you get started nothing will happen. That idea will be worthless.
You can continue to sit there and run through all of your “important” questions or you can get started.
In my case, I wanted to work for myself. I started an online and offline venture. Now I’m job free.
Shouldn’t I plan and get everything in order?
Yes and No
You should have a plan in place, but the most important part is that you get started instead of just staying in the planning stage.
I will create a Get Started To-do list for you that you can use when making a decision. You can change the steps depending on what it is that you are trying to do.
Here it is:
Put the idea on paper
Decide what your first steps are
Keep moving forward
I will use C&C as an example of how you can use the Get Started To-do list to achieve whatever you want.
You can use this list for everything from starting a business to getting a girl.
How I used the Get Started To-do List to create a great blog?
In the beginning, I knew I wanted to share my ideas with those who would listen. I knew that I could write pretty well and I also knew how to create a website.
I could have sat around for days thinking about the best way to get my ideas out there. I could have Googled how to build a large following.
But I decided to instead Get Started and adapt as I went along.
Here is how I did it:
I had the idea that I wanted to be able to share my message with all of those who would listen.
Put the idea on paper-
I then wrote down the idea and exactly what I wanted from it.
Decide what your first steps are-
I knew I would need a medium that would be appealing to people, but that would also allow me to only speak to a certain group of people.
I wanted my medium to be online as that is where most people spend their time.
I decided that I would create a blog. From there I purchased wayoftheolympian.com and purchased hosting using BADNET (Not an affiliate link).
Once my site was ready to go I began writing and designing my blog.
Keep moving forward-
At first, my article’s sucked. I wouldn’t receive a single comment or subscriber.
Most would quit after a few months, but not me.
Instead, I made my blog’s design appealing and unique. I continued writing and developed my own style of writing. I worked on my craft day after day.
Now I have a decent amount of subscribers and have people comment on my article’s.
I am going to continue working on my craft.
Even when I have 20k subscribers I will still be working on my craft.
If it weren’t for me Getting Started you wouldn’t be reading this article. I would probably still be trying to figure out what I wanted to do.
In conclusion, I want you to know that there are people like you out there.
People who want more out of life than working a dead-end job, getting married, and then dying after a life of settling for less than you want.
I can be that brother you never had or a mentor. Whatever makes you feel good just know that I believe in you.
Remember that you will always need a job if you desire to have money. The difference is that you can either work for yourself or for someone else.
