WHAT’S WRONG WITH A JOB?

HONEST LIVING

You get up and go to work everyday. It’s not the most amount of money, but you are able to buy the things you need to survive. Now, some may look at that think to themselves it could be perceived as problematic. Especially considering how unguaranteed the workplace is today. But there is nothing wrong with wanting to have a job that is a little more stable on a daily basis. And there is nothing wrong with knowing there is something there every two weeks. That’s consistent income could be comforting to most. But the reality is that so many jobs are here one day and gone the next. So there is just way too much doubt and risk associated with having just one job. And for most people in the foreseeable future , they will have some sort of outside income making money.

CHECK TO BANK TO BILLS TO NEEDS TO WANTS

When you get paid from your job, most people have direct deposit. You already have what your money is going toward. It goes from the bank, to setting aside the funds for rent, then you have your utilities, food, transportation, and your personals. After the needs of your household is paid, then most people focus on the wants in their life like the leisure activities. And this is why so many people are broke for the most part. They live check to check because they want to live while surviving. And you have to be careful because you have to always plan for the worse. You never know what might happen in the future. You not only could lose your job and but you could also get sick which could be costly.

THE REALITY AMONGST THE FEAR

Now, the reality of jobs are that most people are not going to lose their job. Most people will have something that they call work everyday. The only thing that is scary is that you are not in the know, and assuming something is always there. And like I said for most people it is, but some won’t. Only thing is that, you don’t know who that some will be.

BOTTOMELESS PIT: NOT KNOWING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO

“What should I be doing?”


i have no clue

We all know the person in college who change their major three or four times. They keep at it in school because they have no clue what they want out of life. Then they do get out of school and still go from job to job not really knowing what they want. Just like changing their major they change careers. First they want to design clothes, then open up a restaurant, next thing you know they are working on being a nightclub promoter. Their lives are not really headed in any really direction. Just falling in this pit with not bottom. So what do you do if you are one of these types of people?

figure out early

I spent so much of my time trying to figure our in my 20’s what I was good at in life. Then I stumbled upon writing, filmmaking, and photography. This is when I realized what I truly wanted to do with my life. After that it became the work to be good at what I am doing. But the problem with so many people is that they are so focused on their fun and personal lives, they neglect their career goals. Then they start to say things like, “I think I might want to be this or that.” That’s fine when you’re 18 years old, but you start to move through your 20’s and entering 30’s, you feel more helpless and less accomplished. So you have to resist the want to go out and have fun to focus on your path in life.

never getting there in life

The hardest part of life is realizing you may never find your passion. You will live on this Earth and not quite measure up. And who want s to really do that in life. You live for the next 50 years and then realize it was all for nothing. That is why people hold on to religion so much. To know this is it can be very scary.
