Your Salary is the bribe they give you to forget your dreams…
Let that soak in for a minute…. Deep right?
If you will, I will step on my soapbox for a second!
Seriously, how deep is that? Never thought about it that way before right! It’s true, sadly it really is. How many times have we all taken a job that we are not passionate about, just because it’s a “come-up”. We wake up everyday dreading going in, but do it because at the end of day, pay-day is right around the corner!
This Salary mentality is why we have Vacations and TGIF! I mean really think about it! If we all were pursuing our dreams, or at least going for a career that we found interesting, we would not need to work to go on vacation, or to struggle through the week just to make it to Saturday.
Just think what your life would look like, if you followed your heart’s desire. I know you have responsibilities: kids, mortgage, piles of debt! Hell me too! To me that train of thought is the easy way out though! No one is saying, quite your job today and become a profession surfing instructor! But what are the steps you need to get to that beach? What’s your plan?
If you don’t have one, maybe it’s time to rethink your approach at life! Or don’t, and enjoy waiting until you’re 65 and can hopefully retire to begin living… hopefully it won’t be too late!
I’m sure you’re thinking this is all fine and dandy, what are you doing? You are reading it! This is the first part of my dream! I want to do something that makes a difference, even if it is in a small way! My website and my words will live on, long after I am gone, and hopefully because of me, someone will change their outlook on life!
I will step down now… I’m sure that was a little too harsh of a reality check for some… and other’s will just disregard this seed! But for those of you who it touches… WELCOME! It’s actually nice living outside of the box!
Remember… If you don’t follow your dream, you’ll end up working for someone who did!
