Never take your 9-5 job for granted

In a self help society we living in, there is a huge resentment in jobs and people preaching self employment and being your own boss. But today I want to share a light of this trap, unless you work towards something bigger than where you are then you shouldn’t not hate your job, even if you have big dreams job will help you achieve them quicker and keep a bit of security. I want to add don’t let your consumerism habit keep you in a job that’s you hate not because you need it, but because you want to pay for your lifestyle not necessitates. 

  1. The easy way to get a better job is to have a job in a first place

This job will offer you experience and skill and some sort of mastery on what’s you will be doing everyday. and Taking that’s lightly and be deceived by gurus who ask you to take risk and leave your job ,you can always do that’s but make it a calculated move ,have already have a demanding business and reasonable income before taking that’s leap and have the ability to leave below your means.

Leaving the job you have right now might make it hard for you to get another job so be careful making this move as the subtitle say ,people refer the jobs to other people who are at the workplace ,meaning the reference only comes from the fact that’s this working people wants to improve their work standards not leave it completely to fairytale of running a business. In this blog we emphasize entrepreneurship but we also understand it’s not for everyone.

  • Job is not only a hard work to make a living or being in an office all day but it everything you do.

Here is a wakeup call, your job offers you the route with a reasonable stress unlike what’s your boss handles everyday .The job will make things happen for you, the only thing I can suggest is not treating your 9-5 as a way of life but while working try to escape the need to work by building something aside that’s will end up making equal money with what’s your present boss pay you.

 Here you should make research and invest on something that’s won’t make you lose money, if you can do this you have a chance of becoming a business person. For example building a rental rooms and take a rent every month if you can keep that’s up using your own income in three years you can make serious money just avoid improving your lifestyle when this happens because it will cost you your progress and you will be stuck at your job and not appreciate your new job of being a landlord.

Actors, musicians, Youtubers and other influencers are also working and not working is also working because you cannot go through a day without doing anything. So our 29yrs advice is make looking for a job a new job and also try to be creative and start your own job without being hired and try to grow and get out of the dip quickly.

  • A job is a ticket to your dream life or your plateau

I don’t factor much how much you are making because what’s you are making you agreed to at the time you started working it was good enough and you created wants that’s ended up making it like is small. The best way to raise your level of living is starting by increasing your income, so if you don’t know how to increase your income then increasing your stuff will leave you broke and miserable in the money side of things.

Success TV says don’t treat your pay slip or wage as a fruit of your labor but a ticket to your desired life , meaning don’t take your earnings and eat it all ,invest most and live on some. The lives of people becomes absolute because their philosophies about life has became absolute and if you already thinking like that’s you should start and be open to new ideas from people who are doing better than you in life .

 If you want to learn and improve your marriage learns from people who have been married longer than you and seems to be happy and same apply to finances. Because reaching a plateau is when you are in your high paying job and think you have made it in life, because you have a car, wife, kid and house.

That’s not true life is still going to throw problems in your life and you should be ready a wife can leave you and take your stuff if you don’t have prenuptial agreement or a kid may have a problem ,so as you master your work life and relationships also master the mindset and your environment.

  • To make the most out of your job use cash and avoid premiums

This is not a professional financial advice is the advice that I used, don’t use the money you don’t have to impress people that’s don’t care about you, even if they care its won’t matter when you work to pay debts for the most of your life. Enjoy the income as it come and budget if you can and try to have more money left over at the end of the month.

Look at your budget and look at the things you can eliminate and see things that’s no one will die if you don’t have them, new shoes, new clothes, new TV and so on and use those funds and double them in a form of selling something and adding profit or creating a cash flow recurring rental that’s when people will be paying premium to you rather than you paying premium to them.

  • Work is not a verb is a management system

For the country to strive its needs more producers than consumers, consumerism cause obesity and other problems while production cause great economy for everyone. Now as AI and AR is about to change the way we work ,working physically hard is slowly getting irrelevant and this goes back to the reason of working in the first place ,its was a management system what’s adults will be doing when kids are at school?

They will be at work and what do kids will be doing while parents will be at work they will be in school learning how to work and all the unnecessary things school teaches. This has became a system the countries are governed but this doesn’t mean so much work is necessary. Agriculture is necessary work as well as doctors and lawyers and some other important industries.

But the most striving business which is a transport business as for luxury cars which are what’s people work for in our days its what’s makes people get stuck in a system ,instead of getting a car that’s will do the work taking you from point A to point B ,we also want to show off to our social society and that’s make our jobs a verb something we have to do instead of trying to get out of the system by making money work for me ,while I explore my other talents and passions.

So as of today topic don’t resent work if it doesn’t fulfill your needs, look at your expenditure, what’s you do with that’s money because work shouldn’t fulfill you if it does that’s a big up for you, unless it’s your passion or you find meaning in what’s you are doing and the environment and you wouldn’t choose anything else but if you complain of being stuck, you are stuck in a system better yourself and get out.

Well here we are to the end of today’s topic and we hope its find someone who needs it .And from now onwards you will start seeing your work as not the end of the world if it is, then it’s the world you love living in. If you have accepted your situation and live to pay bills consider the possibility of not being able to support what’s ever you are supporting with your income?

Thanks for taking the time we can go forever just appreciate and be grateful of your job but don’t think you cannot do well than that’s but if you already living a simple happy life don’t complicate it ,keep that’s emergency fund and security for your family.

Few things you can live without and you shouldn’t worry about them

We live in a consumer society and as people we want to own everything under the sun but that’s might affect you badly if you want to keep up with the Jones while you at the bottom class. This is not a minimalist message or cut coupon kind of information but its common sense that’s we can all relate to.

This is financial but its inspired by emotional attachment from other people, today I went to clinic and there was a real cue there and I saw people waiting hours and I was one of them for that’s service but what’s was really mind blowing was seeing youth wearing $1000 / R1000 sneaker but using public healthcare, my math says I rather go to a doctor and pay a little bit and don’t own expensive sneaker and get my time back. Let’s get this into point form.

Dstv or subscription cable TV

Paying premium on entertainment is for rich people say double digit millionaire who can pay for the whole year without a blank. But rarely you will see this people do that’s because they encourage reading books and a bit of balance of the entertainment for their kids. Now getting back to us ,if money is important to you ,you know R100 per month is R1200 per year that’s 12 000 in 10 years instead you can have a TV with Ariel or once off open HD and enjoy national tv for free while tackling real challenges in your life and better yourself.

The only subscription we recommend here in LnM is Audible not Netflix, in audible you can get audio books of personal development and improve your current situation. Or use YouTube for free just by buying a small data , personally since 2018 nothing entertain me more than learning to the point that’s I thought maybe sometimes I need to stay back a bit and revise the information I have learned and try to apply it in my life. Although I have had some success so far but my learning is above my actual life outcome.

Expensive clothes

Uniforms here are the best recommendation; you can live happily and well respected while wearing Mr. Price clothes or HnM but all you have to do is to keep them clean. Like every young person we get obsessed with cloths and this is just a way to get social validation from our friend but at our parent’s expense.

The best practice a parent can give is teaching his/her kid to not get anything they want ,especially don’t give them luxury at an earlier age that’s will end up going to their head and make them feel entitled while they still don’t know how to work for this things.

I like to make examples with myself  ,so I taught my nephews to save money and if someone borrow it charge them interest  ,but so far I have failed to teach them assets which are things they can buy that’s will make them more money. Clothes are valuable if you sell them and them represent your brand, so we encourage that’s but be mindful it’s a challenging industry.

Lot of lame friends

Having a lot of friends won’t do you any good unless its quality people and once the number is high that’s friendship won’t be effective so try to have a handful of people you call friends. I knew a guy who I thought we came a long way, I didn’t consider him much of a friend because I already have a best friend so he was just a friend or acquaintance we had something in common and if we didn’t talk about that’s thing we were totally different people.

But there is something he did that’s I took lightly at 1st but later I realize I cannot keep this guy very close today I’m really keeping my distance from that’s guy. So for you reading  you don’t need to go through the same thing ,study people and see their actions ,if they do one of the member in a group wrong like backstabbing or gossiping they could possibly do it to you let alone a friend that’s can sleep with people’s exes that’s a homerun for a red flag.

Keep handful of friends really valuable people ,people you can count on and who can count on you and try not to test people in anyway act in a time of need because people they can sense if they are not trusted.

Low paying and uninspiring job

Little reason’s to stay a certain job, pay or its potential to pay well or if you enjoy doing that’s job or lastly its cause or mission is bigger than all of us. At work you should not worry about what’s other’s think because that’s will lead to mod mentality and yourl end up being average.

The perks and benefits shouldn’t be the defining factor when you pick a job because you going to spend your whole life there, doing that’s thing. Consider the environment the people the leader and the team spirit, be the best version of yourself when you at work and crush it every time they watch result , if you could find a job where you can be yourself in it and have a positive attitude most of the time that’s will be the winner.

But not all jobs are like this other jobs are for you to get yourself from the ground up. Don’t look at your paycheck as fruit of your labor but look at it as a ladder to a better life, meaning you won’t use all the money on bills but you will think of saving and starting a business and investing on assets. You will buy books and attend conferences and take those lessons’s and put them into good use.

Luxury house, car earlier on

You and I shouldn’t buy luxury the moment we can afford to make the monthly payments, this is my mindset I cannot do a debt that’s will leave me vulnerable to options. House mortgages are 15 to 30 years payment every month car is 5 years unless I buy this things in cash. At some point I know I can buy them in cash so the discipline I need to have to raise this money from my job I will apply.

I don’t know how other people operate but if this job is all you have or you can get the job elsewhere but you still going to need the blessings of the present job to move, what’s if one day you have to challenge your boss because he is breaking certain laws of the company and it will affect your job. Knowing you have kids and house and a car that’s needs monthly payment you have two options challenge him and be at risk of losing that’s job or maybe he may understand and change his ways. Or let it slide and always compromise because of the luxuries you don’t want to lose.

I learnt very well in 2014 that’s money is important to have it in the bank ,than anything tangible ,that’s year I lost my well paying job but I had a lot of money and no luxuries yet but I was planning to get one the following year cash. Forget about fica credits score myths and the ability to borrow that’s shouldn’t be your problem, you should teach yourself how to leverage debt or don’t take it if you scared of taking risks and can’t manage your own money.
