Breaking Out Of The Cycle

Life is expensive, isn’t it? Prices go up, wages stay the same. Technology is constantly changing, and it gets harder and harder to keep up. All these stresses can make a person really look at their career. Are you enjoying what you do for a living, or are you just working for a paycheck? Is there a future for you in your workplace, or are you just stagnant?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing twice and expecting different results. We all have heard this, yet many people do this every day, week, month and year in our workplaces. We wake up, go to work, and just punch a clock. Every day it is the same thing.

While there is room for some to advance, not everyone can achieve growth in every job. For many of us, what started as a job to tide us over until we figured out what we wanted has become our career. A shocking 85% of workers worldwide admit to hating their job. 85%!!! That is crazy, and yet it is the world we live in.

People need a feeling of accomplishment. When we don’t enjoy our work, we often look for that satisfaction in things. This can lead to overspending a debt. Then we work to pay off that debt. It becomes a cycle.

Sometimes we need to take a leap of faith and try something new. Take a look at your passion. Is it where you go every morning? If not, it might be time for a change. Where there is no passion, there is no drive to succeed. Success is not only about the paycheck or money sitting in the bank. It is not about the car we drive, the phone we carry, or the house we live in. Success is also about our mental state, our outlook on life, and the way we carry our selves.

There is a satisfaction that comes from making your own path. A success that comes from earning a living on your own terms. You can take control of your financial future and still have the personal fulfilment from being self-employed.

There are many options available for someone wanting to take control of their financial future. Running an online business is a great option for some people. It allows you to make your own hours, and you can start small. Making a big change in careers can be difficult later in life. A gradual transition could be a great solution.

Another great option is becoming an independent consultant. Consultants  You could be a freelance consultant with a little bit of training even if you have no special skills or experience! There are options available to earn a living while not being locked into the 9-5 world.

There are so many opportunities available if you just look. No one needs to stay in a career they are not satisfied in. Push your self outside of your box and see what is outside. You might surprise your self.
