If you have to ask why should you quit your crappy job, and you sincerely don’t know, then you probably don’t have a crappy job. People who have crappy jobs know they have them and they can’t wait to quit, they live to quit. Is that you? Whatever the reason, it doesn’t matter, there’s a million reasons, you could have any number of them. Do you hate your boss? Do you not make enough money?
Some people have grown insane in order to become ok with there jobs. They have settled for being a cog in the system. They are content with just being better off than so and so, or they justify, at least I don’t have the responsibility that comes with more money. You see this in corporate America. Some people are just glad they don’t have to go to college, or grad school, or post-graduate school, or whatever. They celebrate being “done” with education. Then they proceed to go to a job where they have to learn how to perform that job no matter if it’s sweeping floors or operating on brains. People become stuck, like rats on a wheel, going round and round, smelling the cheese, but never getting enough.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t love money, the love of money is the root of all evil. I just don’t want to have to consider money ever again, in the sense that I don’t want to have to consider if I have enough of it for whatever I want to do. I’ll tell you the main thing I value is time, autonomy, peace of mind, and freedom. Freedom units is what my virtual mentor said, as I call him, you may have heard of him, his name is Tai Lopez, ok well he was my first mentor, his YouTube Ad “Here in my garage,” was what WOKE me up from the chaotic hell that was my life. My life is still chaotic, and I actually thrive in that, but it is no longer hell, it’s actually a lot closer to heaven.
When I saw Tai’s YouTube ad I was going to college as a pre-medical student with a 4.0 in my second year at the University of North Georgia. After that I ended up working in a pharmacy and putting school on hold until I figured out if this thing (medical school) that I was committed to was what I actually wanted to do. I still want to go to medical school, I just don’t want to spend 12 hours a day in a hospital (after med-school) working 6 days a week. I’m still incredibly interested in the human body, and medicine, it’s just that I’m an entrepreneur, I’m an idea guy, I’m happiest when I’m creating, not when I’m surface cleaning driveways, which is what I ended up doing after I quit my pharmacy job. All of these decisions were very hard for me, leaving school, quitting my pharmacy technician job, surface cleaning driveways for cash money, ok the last one was easy, but when I found MJ Demarco’s The Millionaire Fastlane, particularly the audiobook, something snapped, everything changed, I was going to quit my job make fast money or die trying. Then I bought his next book, Unscripted, and that’s when I just couldn’t take it anymore. I started planning my escape.
Everyday new ideas and escape plans came flooding in my head. Whenever I discussed them with my “boss,” who was basically what you would understand as a supervisor with boss powers (to hire and fire basically,) he would tell me how stupid they all were and that they wouldn’t, and couldn’t work. Talk about negativity. He said he was just being real. Yeah, a real naybasher from hell. I get enough of that from my parents, and don’t even get me started about my grandfather who considers me to be about like little puppy, harmless, but unable to care for itself.
Well, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. They don’t have to life my life. It’s funny how people who really don’t know anything about you, (anyone and everyone,) thinks they know what’s best for you. Yet they don’t know anything. All they know is whatever got them to wherever they are. So I asked myself, do I want to end up like them, for 99% of the people on the planet, my answer is no. So out of almost 8 billion people, I can count on my 10 fingers at any given point the number of people I will listen to. So why are you listening to me? It’s probably because you have a crappy job and you’re looking for help. Congratulations, that’s what I’m here to do, to help. I’m here to rescue as many people as I can from the matrix, the script, the grid, the rat race, from traffic fighting, from the 9-5 zombie life. This is really critical, it’s important to me. Because I know the feel.
The soul sucking plod. The what am I doing question. Billions of people are being led down a path they don’t know they were suckered into. It doesn’t mean you’re a sucker, because if you didn’t know, you didn’t know, but I am telling you right now, that if you are calling the shots in your life, if you aren’t the one making things happen, if you aren’t in control of your life, if you aren’t the one who directed your own path 100%, if you are playing it safe, if you aren’t taking risks, if you put up with anyone elses shit, then you are not free. And now that you know, you aren’t a sucker, you have a decision to make. You’re only as free as you decide to be, as you want to be, as you make yourself.
Maybe you’re already buried in a mountain of debt, with 3 kids, a mortgage, car payments, student loan debt, more crap than you can afford, and big house that takes up your whole Saturday to maintain. See the trap? I’m not saying to leave your family, and sell everything you own, quit your job and live under a bridge. You can plan your escape today. The plan doesn’t have to be perfect. There’s no set number of steps, or any rules for writing the plan. But the final destination which is actually the journey, but the journey is actually freedom, and freedom my friend, has already begun. It begun when you clicked on whatever you clicked on to get to this article and read it, and it continues.
Action for the day: Grab a piece of blank printer paper (if you have one, if not any big piece of paper will do), and sketch out your path to freedom, draw up your plan, write the steps you are going to take, and plan your escape. Then look at that plan every day. Then whenever you feel so compelled, perhaps once a week, grab a new blank piece of paper and seek to improve your plan of escape and sketch it out. You can use images if you like to draw, start at the top left of the page, and write exactly where you are, such as your job title and/or place you work, now at the bottom right corner write where you would like to be, such as free, in between you can plan your route from where you are, to where you want to be, and you can include all the things that are in your way to getting where you want to be, and also you can include the things you need to get where you want to be.
When you are done, take a picture of the piece of paper and post it below this article, and feel free to include anything you would like to say, just keep it concise, it’s critical to make this a focused effort, just don’t leave anything crucial out. I’ll see you next time.
