I am convinced that I am supposed to be doing something else rather than being a slave in a white collared shirt, tie and suit; having fixed hours in the office and fixed salary month in and month out. I will never improve the state of my family if I stay in the office and do the same thing over and over. I need to get out of this and start exploring new things.
I am personally investing in the stock market through an online stock broker. They have this long term program which I am taking advantage of. It is a no-brainer. With just consistently investing 5000 pesos per month, I am GUARANTEED to be a millionaire in my late 40s. I am just 26 years old and have just been investing in the stock market for just a few months more than a year. I will not achieve that millionaire status in 20 years in the corporate world, I know; which is why I started investing. I also invested in a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) business last January. My progress has been very slow but my marketing is just almost half of part-time. I know people under me who also joined the business, who were 5 years younger and undergraduates. They have already bought their 1st cars in their first 6 months! They already have cars! After 5 years of working I can’t even get approved for a credit card! These are full-timers in the business and they do all the leg work. It’s not easy to encourage people to join the MLM industry, especially here in the country because of the business’ bad reputation. But they were able to! That’s what you call hard work, dedication and faith. Anyway, I’m not marketing my MLM business; that’s in another blog. J Going back, they are able to earn more and have the free time to spend in excelling in their businesses, with their families especially their children.
I cannot even spend time with my son, nowadays. My son’s time is unpredictable. He plays whenever he wants to, the time when he’s hungry and sleepy can’t be anticipated, and other stuff babies do. Another thing is that working out has always been inconsistent for me due to time constraints. I want to have that kind of freedom: to be able to work out during my scheduled sessions and spend time with my son whenever I want and not think of sleep because I have to wake up early to go to the office.
What I’m trying to say is that employment will not make these possible; and it will be extremely difficult to make it happen. There are other things to do out there which will give us this freedom. We all just have to learn to open our minds, take necessary risks and believe in the system we’re going to get into and do the work in order to achieve our goals.
