We all start out as university graduates who work under someone to pay our bills. But many of us are stuck at our 9 to 5 jobs, and most of us are not lucky enough to escape that reality. But have you ever stopped yourself and asked whether it was worth it to be working under someone? Our professional lives involve us doing work under someone for little pay when we are starting out. The companies end up raking in millions in profits, but the workers struggle to pay their bills and make ends meet. Although some may feel that there are many perks of working under a boss, a majority of the people don’t feel the same way.
In order to escape this harsh reality, people have to become brave enough to take matters into their own hands and take risks. Most of us become too comfortable at our day jobs. In fact, we become so much comfortable with our lives that become afraid to put ourselves out there and take risks. The most successful and richest people in the world were not afraid to take big risks when they were starting out their lives. One of the richest person in China, Jack Ma failed in almost everything in life and got kicked out of all the jobs he took. But, he never gave up on his dreams and kept working hard, until he managed to save enough money to start a business, and now look where it got him. Bill Gates, who is the richest individual in the world currently dropped out of Harvard to pursue his dreams and became such a successful entrepreneur that almost everyone in the world knows about him right now.
In order to escape our soul crushing jobs, we need to start making money work for the benefit of us. Start taking charge of your own lives, and make meaningful changes to it and keep improving yourself every single day. We often give up way too easily, but that sort of attitude will not take us anywhere in life. Only the fittest and the bravest individuals survive in this cut throat world, and we need to be one of them. Instead of helping other people make tons of money from our hard work, we need to shake things up and take charge of our lives. Imagine working 40 hours every week just for an average pay scale while your bosses make millions of dollars every year, all because you chose to help him. When you spend so much of your life on your job, your relationships suffer as you can’t afford to spend time with your family. But if you have your own business, no one can take your hard work away from you. All your assets and creativity will be a part of you and your business and you can give your family enough time while also earning a comfortable living.
Working for other people also means that we are stuck earning a fixed salary with little chance of increasing. This means that you can’t live a life with freedom as you are always restricted by your salary. Some of us also need to save for a rainy day or emergency situations, meaning you can’t even reap the full benefits from our salaries. But if you are your own boss, these sort of problems won’t be a headache for you. Although this involves more challenges, you will still have the freedom to choose what you do with your free time and money, helping you to unshackle from the corporate lifestyle.
