Let me share this short story:
Presently there are hundreds of thousands of people who take home hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, and unfortunately they never even get to see their little ones awake! This is referred to as ‘Heads in Beds’. They see their kids asleep when they get up early for work, and see them asleep again when they return home from work late. They have the money, but no time to take advantage of it.
There are even more folks who have too much time, but have no extra income at all. Free time is nice, but not when you are broke.
The very best situation is to have just as much funds as high-paid folks, and as much free time as the unemployed. Would you agree that is the ideal situation we all dream of? You would be able to do what you want, when you want, and no boss would ever tell you what to do again.
Whenever you go to your job, it is not your boss that you are laboring for. The true reason you are there busting your hump every day is for your family. If you were going to get paid anyway, irrespective of whether you showed up for work or not, would you even go?
Not many people would!
In the event that you got paid whether you worked or not you could very well take your family on vacations, and not be bothered about how many days you are off. It’s rather silly isn’t it? You go on vacation to spend time with your family, but only for as long as your manager says you can…
That is much like being back in school. You are only able to go out to play whenever the teacher says, and you have to quickly run back in when the bell rings, to get back to work.
It’s time to think of who you really work for.
Your place of employment or your family?
Are you busting your hump each and every day for your spouse and children, so they can enjoy the finer things in life, live in a nice home, go on fabulous vacations, drive a nice car, eat good food, wear fine clothes. You are earning a living for THEM, right?
Be Clear, you might love your job. And that is ok. Continue to love your job until you can love it no more.
The bottom line though, it is not about spending money on all those things is it? If you could get the earnings in a way that offered more flexibility, freedom, and less time, would you do it?
