Yes you read the title right. If you work to earn a living doing a job you necessarily don’t like for the sole purpose of a salary. Then you are a battery for the various money making institutions and when they are done. Like you do when a battery has exhausted its use it gets replaced. In humans it is termed retirement.
So what do you do? You might ask. I’ll suggest you live your life doing what brings you joy, whatever that may be. It’s easier said than done, I know we all have bills to pay.
For those that are adventurous you start a business around your passion, for those that are not, I suggest you take on a hobby that brings you joy after you’ve done you regular day’s job. I can’t stress this enough.
Think about it, you need to live your life without regrets and the only way to do that is to live the life you’ve always dreamt of. It should be one of your main goals or at least something to strive for. You want to live your best life as cliché as it may sound.
Time will be an issue that is just a fact. So utilise it wisely. Furthermore some of us will be more successful than others that is a fact. However remember that we are all on different paths as such we have different goals. Try not to compare too much with others. We’re human beings not machines that exist for the profit of our various economies. We all need to start living our life and not just exist to make money.
I think it is so paramount to look back and have as little regrets as possible. If we are lucky we may look back and smile on the things we have done and the achievements we have made in line with our passion and goals.
What are you doing to live the life you want to live, whatever that may be? How are you taking a break from your 9 to 5 if you’re not self-employed? What are you doing differently to get out of the rat race?
