Are you tired of living paycheck to paycheck, anxious about an unknown future? Is getting up in the morning a monumental chore? Are you tired of bringing work home on weekends and staying late at work during the week to finish-up projects?
Excerpt from Chapter 1
Loving what you do and for whom you are working is a wonderful feeling. Waking up in the morning, excited to start the day, with a skip in your step and a smile on your face is a sustainable pleasure many of us would like to experience. Having a satisfying and fulfilling job that we love can be one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives. Having a job that brings us the income we want, gives us an exciting avenue for creative expression, and grows and expands over time to fit our wants and needs, for most of us, sounds like a dream.
When you take into consideration that most people spend more time at work than in any other area of their lives, wouldn’t it be great if we actually liked what we did, found great satisfaction in what we were doing, and felt successful and happy all at the same time? Unfortunately, for most people, this is not the case.
You see, for many us, how well we do at making a living, paying our bills, and saving money, are directly tied to how successful we perceive ourselves to be. Success, then, is unequivocally tied to how we feel about what we have and what we do. Said another way: with this kind of thinking, success is directly linked to having a good job and making lots of money.
If we are bringing in big bucks, have lots of money in the bank, and can easily pay our bills, then we feel successful. If we are barely squeaking by, living paycheck to paycheck, and transferring balances between credit cards while going further into debt, then we don’t feel so good about ourselves. Though, if we are making lots of money, own our own home, a car or two, vacation in the islands during the summer and ski Aspen during the winter, we feel very good about ourselves and are the envy of our neighbors.
Therefore, our success is dependent upon on how much money we have, how many possessions we’ve collected, and what type of lifestyle we live. This way of thinking means that our number one priority must be our job, since without it we are nothing.
The problem with this way of thinking is that we are living in a constant state of fear and anxiety. Fear that we will lose our job and anxiety about company downsizing. Pressure to always have to excel for fear that someone younger than us will steal our promotion. Anxiety over whether or not we will have a falling out with our boss, whether or not we will get fired, and that we will never be able to find another job at the salary we are presently earning. Perhaps the greatest fear of all is that politically, something will happen that will irrevocably put us on the outside of the corporate inner circle, with no way of ever getting back in.
Okay, let’s take a moment to ask: Does this sound like you?
If so, the time has come for you to start making the life you're ready to have!
This e-book is jam packed with stimulating questions and ideas for success. After reading, you'll know, for sure, if it's time for you to jump ship.
