Now there’s a title that will catch your eyes and make you want to read more. Of course I’m not saying quit your job this very minute but I am advocating doing it as soon as humanly possible. The sheer fact that you clicked on the title to read this article tells me it’s crossed your mind at least once if not many times.
100 years ago the majority of people in this country as well as the rest of the world supported themselves and their families working for themselves. You had Farmers, Doctors, Lawyers, Store Merchants, Pastors, Fisherman, Hunters, Writers, Loggers, etc etc. I can’t help but envy the more simple yet satisfying lives they must have lead. Sure they all worked hard to build their businesses into something that would support their family’s but I’m sure it was well worth it.
One of the major problems with our Modern Day Family lives is that we don’t have enough time to spend with each other. Everyday goes by so fast in our hustle and bustle worlds that we sometimes don’t even remember talking to each other in the morning. It’s all a blur. Wake up! Get your coffee, get dressed and off to work. Spend 8 to 12 hours there doing a job that I’m willing to bet most of you can’t even stand then come home too tired to do anything or even say hi. Watch television for a bit then go to bed and wake up the next day and do it all over again for 5 or 6 days a week. Keep in mind all this is being done to make somebody else’s business profitable. Not much of life at all is it?
Leverage Your Time and Efforts
Why not take advantage of the current times and technology to get back to the simple way of living life? Make some changes today that will change you and the lives of your family members forever. Don’t put it off till tomorrow. Start making your dream of quitting your job and actually living life a reality. Smell the roses! Sign up to get an online degree in your spare time, start a web based business, write a blog, whatever. Do something on the side and start making a difference. On the Internet you have the whole world at your fingertips. You don’t have to sell anything. You just have to be useful to people. I mean think about it. When you get up and do that 9-5 everyday that company pays you because you are useful to them. Right? So start being useful to the rest of the world and some of them will pay you for it. If you are extremely useful alot of them will pay you for it.
When you get to the point that you have made yourself useful to a larger crowd and your money worries no longer exist then you can really quit your job and live this precious thing we call life to the fullest. Only then will you truly get to experience happiness. Help other people as best you possibly can and they will reward you for it.
