“There are things you have to do, even if it is dangerous. Otherwise you are not a human being, but a little dirt.”
The Brothers Lionheart
By this quote I mean that the danger’s not fatal in a way that life ends in a physical way, more like a physiological danger to end up being a zombie or a machine in the society’s wheel of life.
Let me explain; we are brought up by our parents, who in my case are babyboomers from the 40’s, who believes in societies that’s taking care of their working people. You grow up and you go to school where you get thought to be a good employee in a company that will provide you with social security’s like medical care through life and pension when you’ve worked for a lifetime. But this isn’t likely to happen to anyone in my age (+30), because there’s no money in the systems left.
There is a new era now, the schools should teach us how to be good with money and how to make money work for us and not the other way around as it is today. The world needs leaders and entrepreneurs who can create jobs and businesses so that we all can provide ourselves. I know there’s always going to be two kinds of people, the leaders and the followers and that is perfectly ok! But as it is today we are all educated to be followers and not to think outside the box for answers.
I have this in mind as I’ve decided to be my own lucky star and go after the life I always dreamt of and envisioned in my head over the years. I need to put myself out in the danger zone and think for myself and to be creative about my life. To be an employee all my life isn’t an option because that is what I think is a zombie way of life; eat, sleep work and repeat. For goodness sake don’t “dream your life, live your dream!”
Do you believe you’re a machine? That your thoughts and gut feeling is something to just ignore? Here in Sweden there are statistics saying that approximately 32 000 people are at sick leave every year and 200 people dies from stress disorders yearly, we are 10 000 000 people in this country which makes the numbers fairly high, I think. Sadly I know at least 4-5 people in my circle of friends that has or had some stress disorders.
Still many people think it’s better and more secure to be working for others and trading time for money, thinking it’s too risky and a too high price to pay being a self employee. Why not try out something new? Something that eventually gives you more time freedom and allow you to work from wherever you’re located in the world.
I’m not saying it’s a piece of cake to start your own business; it’s going to take much time and persistence in the beginning. But as fortunate, the most mistakes have already been made by others in this business. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, find a good system and get a good training in a good team. I have found this and I feel like I’m in good company with likeminded people who praise each other and shares experiences.
