Fear of Success? Be More Afraid Of Your Current Situation
Are you afraid to make a CHANGE in your life? Are you the kind of person that is held back to new things because of fear of failure or humiliation? You’re too worried what others might think of you?
Seriously, I don’t understand a lot of people, they’re too scared of change I don’t know if it is because of routine or that is the only path they know, but one thing I am certain is that they know exactly what they need to do to make their change, for example, if someone wants to stop smoking you know all you need to do is to stop buying cigarettes and/or asking for them, it’s a very simple process.
Instead human tends to exaggerate stuff and put excuses that prevent you from making your desired change. FEAR? There is nothing wrong to have fear, but you have to be afraid of the right things, you have to think about what would happen if you keep the same routine you’ve doing for several years, what would happen if you stay at the same job, working for someone else –depending on someone else.
Doesn’t it scare you? REALLY? Do you really want to work until you’re 80-90 years old? It is happening to a lot of people lately, the way the world functions now it is very difficult to live off your 401k, you need to keep working late years.
It’s amazing that statistics show that most humans live a mediocre life expecting to win the lottery in their advanced age but what amazes me the most is that they actually never buy a lottery ticket, it’s weird that everyone wants to win it, but just a very few buy the tickets.
Like I said before, you need to be afraid of the right concept, the concept of working for someone else almost until you die, the fact that if you keep it the way it is right now, you won’t know your children… grandchildren… someone else will live for them and get to know them, not you, certainly, you’ll be too busy working so you can eat.
Once you get that, you’ll fear your situation more than anything, just like I did, I thought to myself if I keep doing the same things, working for someone else, I will live to help someone else achieve his dreams, not mine, so from one day to another I decided to quit, without any path to follow, only the knowledge that if I am intelligent I can make anything happen.
And that’s exactly what I did, I survived and since I haven’t worked from anybody else, I just won’t do it, it’s not in my nature, I am so afraid of the system that if I get back to work for someone else, I will just miss my life, I won’t have a chance to live it, so won’t you.
You don’t need to leave your job right now, but certainly do start thinking what can you do part time in order to create a passive income that will give you the opportunity to quit your job at some point, and the goal here is to enjoy more time, money and FREEDOM. If you decide to self-employ yourself would be the same, because without you there will be no business, so you won’t have time for your family anyway.
Think about it, PASSIVE INCOME, income that comes without your effort, and once you learn how to create passive income your goal will be to be financially free, which means to receive more passive income than your expenses, so you can live of off your passive income alone without changing your lifestyle.
One thing I can assure you from the bottom of my heart is: if you stay working for someone else, chances are that it will drain your life and you won’t be able to enjoy it the way you really deserve, and the fact you’re reading this article tells me you want more from your life, so go out there and find your way, believe in yourself and do it. I BELIEVE IN YOU.
