Stop Robbing Yourself: Get Rid of Your Job!

By: Demetrios Tzortzis

Ahhh, the great American dream. White picket fences, puppy dogs, a beautiful wife and children, good friends and great job. Hey, wait a minute that all sounded pretty good up until that last part. From birth, we have been brainwashed that the optimal value of our lives is determined by our vocation. We are thrilled when we're finally old enough to get our first paper route. We feel like real mature adults when we're in high school working diligently. We work our way through college so that we can call ourselves educated and get a better job. There, we spend the rest of our able-bodied lives working away. The first question that most people ask each other is, "Where do you work?" or "What do you do for a living?"

Enough! It's time to break the mold! Working our lives away until we're too old to enjoy life is for the birds! Here are 10 fantastic reasons to get rid of your crappy job today:

1)Having a job limits your development both personal and professional. If you spend all of your time working for man, then you will never get to be the person that you want to be.

2)Working your life away works the life right out of you. People give the most healthful years of their lives to their jobs.

3)Having a job assures you that you will never really have any money. When you spend your life working for others, you lock yourself into poverty. You have to learn to do your own thing for the benefit of yourself and your loved ones.

4)People who think that hard work is the only way to success are simply misled or perhaps mentally challenged. There are incredible ways to generate loads of cash and have more free time than you know what to do with.

5)You deserve more vacation time than one or two weeks every year. Think about it: if you wake up every day and go to work for 50 weeks straight, then you get two weeks for yourself and your family. Most times, those two weeks are spent just trying to wrap your mind around the next 50 that are coming up again.

6)If you believe that all you are ever meant to be is an employee, then you will probably be a great one. However, that's all you'll ever be.

7)There is no honor in servitude. Helpfulness, yes. Giving, yes. Slavery, no way!

8)Think about all of the dreams that you had throughout your life. How many of them have you achieved or seen come to fruition? The reason that people don't achieve their goals in life is because they're too busy working at their jobs.

9)Do you wake up every morning feeling really excited to be alive? Are you full of anticipation about getting to the office because it's such a thrilling experience? Hmmm, why don't you do something about it?

10)People claim that it is the responsibility of an individual to work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Your responsibility is to enjoy your life. It's the only one that you have!

Begin living your life the way that you choose to. There are many ways to successfully replace your job and generate more cash than you ever thought was possible. Hard work does not accommodate or bring about happiness and success. On the contrary, working your life away is exactly what will cause your great misery. Take control of your own destiny! Become your own champion! Realize that your job is killing you and then do something about it.
