So Everyone Wants OUT.
Last Update: Aug 31, 2014
So everyone wants to get out of their daily jobs. A number of blogs will have the headings 'Fire Your Boss', 'Walk out of Your 9-5 Job', 'Free Yourself from Your Boring Job', "Have the Freedom You've Always Wanted', etc. as if our bosses or employers are the most hated people on earth. therefore, everyone, let's join the bandwagon…be an affiliate marketer!
I think this is one of the many reasons why people get turned off by all these slogans. Instead of walking away from their jobs, they walk away from all these internet marketing groups. I understand, oh, yes, I fully understand. These IM groups will promise you the whole world, only to offer you more for more $$$.
No matter how dreadful my life was with my first few jobs, I still am grateful for the experience. I wouldn't be where I am today if I weren't given the opportunity to taste the life with different groups, fields, people, and yes, jobs that I've held.
Don't get me wrong, I still want the freedom, the lifestyle of being my own boss, and travel while I earn. However, if I look back at my life, I had the most challenging experiences, having held different jobs from the corporate environment to being a health professional. These jobs are what have made me who I am today - a stronger, more determined person that I am now.
I am quite over reading and checking out what is better than WA. There is none, period. I just want to to do what I need to do - focus on what I need to learn. If I see improvement on my ranking, then I'm happy. Then I move on, read, learn, improve on my website. If I know that it's my time to leave my job, then that's because I have stepped into a new direction in life. Not because, I hate the boring, mundane tasks that I do. If ever I do leave WA, it's because I have already learned and applied what I've learned, and I not because of anything negative.
My message is, don't quit your jobs, just because there is online business that can make you rich. Most likely, it won't, if the negative attitude in you is present. Let your school education and your jobs be the stepping stones to what you want out of your online business.
Reflect on your school years. Whether you admit it or not, you have learned, and you have jobs, because of your education. Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are what you are, because of both your education and your jobs. Take a few, if not all of what you've learned from school and your work, and apply them to your learning experience in your search for a better life.
Here are 5 points to consider:
5. Health (Healthy mind and bodies)
Looking at these 5 points, don't we all had to go through with these when we were at school? Don't we all have to apply all of these when we were offered our jobs?
Have a positive, productive and peaceful week.
I'm with you Jen, Healthy mind and body. I've never had a job but i can understand what your saying. Thanks for sharing Jen:)
Always remember these 5 things, jazmin, and you will realize how far you can go, when you get your first job. All the difficult and challenging things you will go through are necessary for you to be successful. Thanks for stopping by.
Nice, Jen. Everything happens for a reason. Every person that crosses our path is there for a reason. At least that's what I believe. We learn, we grow and evolve because of these events and people. It's the nature of life.
Very true, Debbie, believe this, too. I am grateful I've gone through difficult times, or I wouldn't be was strong and confident as I am now.
I agree with you Jen we looked for these jobs and they did serve a purpose,, I would only quit my job if I had something that could replace it and provide me with a means to support myself
HI Katie, Mac, nice to see you again, thanks for stopping by. Yes, we still need to pay our bills, and I have a mortgage to pay.
Before I became a full time caregiver, I was an office Administrator for 26 years. I loved my full time job, the people I worked with and my boss... If I didn't have to quit to stay home, I never would be here :)
Hi Sonja,caregivers are close to my heart, I've been one before I got into nursing. I still deal with them when I visit my clients. They are so committed and selfless.
So true and thank you for sharing. I was a business owner for 25 years and I also had various jobs that I enjoyed very much. I know many of the people here have jobs, some don't, and some are retired (me) . But I agree with you, it may be wise NOT to fire your boss until you start making some money online. My best to you. Vel
HI Vel, thanks for stopping by, and nice to see you again. Hope you are enjoying your new business with WA.
Very good advice, as in "Don't Quit Your Day Job." Yes, everyone wants out, but truly getting out is not as easy as some make it sound. As you point out, there is no longer any value in checking out what is better than WA. There isn't any. To me, that's a relief in itself and frees up some time to work. Have a good week, my friend!
