You Are Not Meant To Be In That Job Forever

Medium Article


The sad fact is; WAY more people feel stuck in their jobs than you’d think.

But you NEED that job.

It’s what keeps a roof over your head, food on the table, warm water, gas in the car, etc.

But you feel suffocated. You don’t have control over your day.

You’re not the boss. You don’t make the rules. You don’t decide who your coworkers are.

You just have to show up and do your work regardless of how it makes you feel.

You get assigned a task or project and then a deadline to complete it with specifications of how it needs to be and who to turn it in to.

If you have shift work, you get forced in overtime and get fed the “well that’s what you signed up for” speech.

You’re working for the weekend because those couple days are ALL you have to look forward to each week.

Meanwhile, the best years of your life and the best hours of your day are spent away from the ones you love most.

You’re saving for retirement… hopefully. Maybe you don’t even make enough to save.

But then what? When will retirement be a possibility? What will you even do?

If you’re not taking care of your health NOW, will you even be able to live the retired life you imagine?

People throw around the saying “living the dream”… if this sounds even a bit familiar, is this REALLY your dream?

And if it isn’t, what are you doing to change it??

This is all wayyyy too familiar for me. I write this because I live it.

The difference is, I made the decision long ago to build the bridge out. The work is still in progress, but it’s the process of building the bridge and the pockets of success along the way that give me hope and validate that it CAN be done.

If you’ve stayed with me til the end of this article, I know you’re different. You feel these same feels and you operate on a different level than the rest of the world. You know what’s possible. You just have to believe in yourself enough to START.

Every successful entrepreneur was once someone who hadn’t started yet. You were made for greatness, go get it!
