I did it! I quit my JOB!
I finally did it... I feel like the Count of Monte Cristo when he escaped The Château d'If prison. I shouted in my car "I AM FREE". For those who don't know me, I am a big risk taker, and this is not my first time to quit a job, but it was the hardest time. Why? Because I am a father now. In the past few times I was alone, but now I have a baby boy and I got cold feet.
The worst thing guys is to work in a job you hate, nothing top that in my opinion. And the weirdest thing was it's really hard to make the decision of quitting! I kept asking my self: why it's so hard to leave the job security, and follow my dream? for the past month I was asking my self this question, and I think that I found the answer which is:
IT IS HARD TO LEAVE YOUR COMFORT ZONE!
By the way, it's very uncomfortable comfort zone! There's this story I read long time ago which I think demonstrate what I want to say:
A man was walking next to his neighbor house and he heard his neighbor's dog howling from pain. He asked thy guy why does his dog howling, the guy answered:"because his sitting on a nail!". The man was surprised from that answer and he said: "then why doesn't he change his place and relief himself from the pain?". The guy said:"because he's an old dog, and the pain is not that awful to make him get up and move." End of story.
We are all howling from the pain, but it's not that awful to make us get up and change out place.
This is our life guys, it's not a dress rehearsal... it's the live concert! If you don't like it, change it, if it doesn't suit you... change it, if it's not working for you... change it, if you don't like where you live, change it... you are not a tree!
I am after my dream, I am gonna do what I like and have a passion for - teaching guitar, I will not have a boss telling me what I can and can't do, I will set my own hours, I will work hard on my self to become more, not work hard in my boss's company to make him rich.
I am a free man.
