If you're like me, then you had or are still having concerns about your future. Feel free to check out my story so far below. I had concerns about my future and I felt stuck in the corporate world.
Having a 9 to 5 Job just wasn't feeling like the right thing to do. It felt like running in circles - spending the biggest part of my time in a job that I don't like to then receive a paycheck at the end of the month only to realise that I don't have the time to spend it wisely. I was a constant underachiever!
So without further a due, here's how I changed my perspective and therefore changed my Life:
I've always been a person that loves freedom more than everything else. Growing up on the countryside of Switzerland gave me this feeling of being free and doing whatever I want to, whenever I want to with whoever I want to. Back in the days we used to play outside and just enjoy life everyday and everynight.
Then I grew up...
In Switzerland it is usual that you go to School until 9th Grade and then get some sort of apprenticeship to settle in the corporate world. It wasn't working out for me and I wanted more of life. I attended a Business School instead of going through an apprenticeship. After Business School I had to make sure I generate some income, so I applied for some Jobs. Until now I've worked in Customer Relations, IT, Sales, Administration, Retail and Call Center Jobs.
Being a constant developper I decided that I don't want to work full-time anymore and applied for a Bachelor's Degree in Medical Informatics. So speaking of right now, I am studying and working both part-time.
THINGS I DIDNT LIKE ABOUT MY BACKGROUND
The payment I received when working full-time was decent but I never felt like having this freedom that my heart craves for since I was just a little boy. I felt like being stuck in a rat-race, chasing pay check after pay check to then realise "Wait a minute, I have money but no time to spend it!"
So things had to change. I started reading books like the law of attraction and got deeper into self-development. I started visualising a Lifestyle where I don't have to trade my money for time - a lifestyle where money works for me, because that's the only way to have financial freedom.
Applying for studies was the first step in the right direction because ever since I started studying I got in touch with my intellectual part - the part of me that loves to learn, read and acquire new skills.
Studying developped new habits!
I started reading books like "think and grow rich", "rich dad poor dad" and "the richest man in babylon". I started listening to podcasts from guys like Tony Robbins, Bob Proctor and Jim Rohn.
HOW WEALTHY AFFILIATE CAME TO THE RESCUE
Infused with this new belief, with this new vision of actually being able to create the Lifestyle I desire, I started looking for ways to achieve my goals. I came across an online marketing program that I don't want to mention here. It wasn't a bad one but it was just way too overpriced and It felt like I was wasting my time.
Wealthy Affiliate has heard my prayers!
I was having doubts on making money online and was afraid that the internet is full of scammers and illegal schemes. I started doing my own research and came across WA all the time. It was compared with a dozen of other programs so I started to believe that this must be the go-to place for learning the necessary skills to build a Digital Business.
And I was not disappointed!
RESULTS & HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE FUTURE
I know for sure that with Wealthy Affiliate, I am in the right place at the right time. I love how they don't put any pressure on me while I'm going through the trainings. I always was kind of an autodidact person that rather chooses his own terms and own tempo when learning/doing something. Wealthy Affiliate gives me exactly this freedom whilst still giving me the feeling of being in a community with like minded people.
I know for sure that with the training I receive here I can and will achieve my goal of financial freedom. I will life the Lifestyle I always desired because I took a decision to. I've set myself the deadline of 5 years to life in complete financial freedom (meaning not having to go to work, rather working because I choose to).
So do I have concerns about my future anymore? Absolutely not!
Let's rock this world. Let's take back control over our lives. Let's create something unique together. Let's work together to actually live our dreams instead of just talking about them!
