In today’s world it has become fashionable to earn a living by working for someone else. Because of the long hours one has to work and the increasing government regulations controlling their lives, many no longer want or desire to own their own business.
It has become much easier to work for someone else, let them make all the decisions, pay all the taxes and deal with the regulations associated with being in business. Many just want to work nine to five and go home have a beer and play video games all evening.
This is the easy way out , and yes for many that is the career path they have chosen and it works for them. That is all well and good.
But way too many people choose this lifestyle because it is the easy way, they are capable of much more. As a result of this choice, they spend their whole life unhappy with the choice they made. Most doesn’t even realize this is the root cause of their own unhappiness.
Many of these individuals then resort to drugs and alcohol to mask their dissatisfaction,thereby creating more unhappiness for not only themselves, but everyone around them as well.
Afraid and supposedly unable to break out of the spiral, their life plummets downward, until finally they give up on their dream and live the dreams of someone else.
Right or wrong , when you work for someone else, you sell part of your soul, you lose a part of yourself, you are no longer the master of your destiny.
Although this may be the correct path for many, and if you are happy keep doing what you’re doing, but if you’re not change it.
