Hey! My name is Cisco and I'm 29. I work for the United States Postal Service. Yipee right? Honestly I do appreciate having a job. In fact, anyone reading my profile, listen to this:
DO NOT QUIT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYMENT!
Yes, that's right. If you're employed right now, act wisely! The job that you're in is NOT who you are. You are so much more than that. However, as much as your job uses your talents and skills, USE THEM! Here's what I mean.
If you absolutely hate your job, think differently. That's what I did. For a long while I began resenting the Post Office. There is so much non-sense it's unbelievable. In fact, it's an extension of high school. I guess that can be said about a lot of government jobs. But I had to change my mind about it. Truly, this is not going to be the rest of my life.
In my personal development, I've come across a book written by a phenomenal lady, Lisa Nichols. In her book, "Abundance Now," she describes that a job is simply an investor into your future. I thought, "wow, I never thought of it that way."
Yes, my job is simply an investor in my future. I bust my ass all day lifting super heavy sh*t, deliver mail to super nasty customers (not all the time), and I sweat/freeze my ass off all day in every season and I do all of this because this is what's required of ME for my job to INVEST in me and my future.
This mentality has lead to me hiring a freelancer to do the things I do not have the skill or the testicular fortitude to do and for me to focus on my creative power. I'm not concerned with "I don't know if my bills are going to be paid this month," because my INVESTOR is paying for it and for my business. Another great piece of advice I came across is that your creative power will be stunted, in fact, shut down, if all you can think about is how you don't have enough money to pay your bills because your jobless.
I know that I will be retiring from the Post Office. And no, I don't mean at 65/70. I mean, before I hit my 30th year on this planet, I will never have to work for someone else again, unless it's my choice. This is all possible because of the foundation found here at WA, my investor (job), and my "self."
How I made it here is metaphysically remarkable, but nonetheless, hard-work, dedication, and sheer luck has gotten me here. I left St. John's University and Hunter College because I knew in my heart that the theoretical education I was getting would not lead me to the kind of sustainable, permanent, and PRACTICAL income I should be earning. I am of the philosophy that we all have our place in this world, and I believe that if we work together, we can achieve things deemed impossible. That's why I'm here, because earning money online has seemed impossible for me but I know it can be done. Thanks for reading and I hope to have people follow me on my journey!
Also, I will be using the blog here to chronicle certain moments of my IM life. You know something... there might just be that 1 thing I figure out that helps one other person that was stuck in the same place. That means the world to me. Also making money means the world to me, but mostly if what I say in my blog helps anyone, then I'll be happy. It also serves as a diary for me to remember what I've done, and to not repeat any mistakes. So I'm excited.
