Think about it. Have you been told all your life, get a good education, get a job, work hard, and you’ll be able to retire comfortably. The statistics don’t lie; for in America 90+% of the people will either be dead by age 65 or dead broke. So let’s take a close look at a job.
People get jobs for security. You can count on that monthly check to provide you with the money necessary for providing for you and your family. You can also save enough money for your retirement by investing in your IRA and then when you reach age 65 you can retire comfortably. Is that really how it works out? For the vast majority the answer is no. So what really happens?
During your working career you might have a number of different jobs with different companies and as a result your lifestyle improves through the years and you find yourself spending as much money as your making to keep up with it. You may even have to adjust your contribution to your IRA downward. Now at some point you will be either be let go from a company or companies as a part of downsizing. At that point you still have to keep the lifestyle so you’re forced to dip into your retirement to make ends meet and of course you’re not contributing to your retirement during this time either. It’s a cycle that keeps repeating itself and when you get into your fifties you find it gets harder and harder to find a job because of your age. The bottom line of all of this, you are “never” really in control of your life.
As for me, I reached the so called “pinnacle” in the job market by advancing to the CEO position of a major corporation but I still had a Chairman of the Board and a board of directors. I found myself traveling all over the world without my wife and I was never home. I reached the point that I realized life was too short. I hated being away from home. At that point I made a decision to become an entrepreneur and experience true time freedom. Has it been easy? No. Has it been worth it? Absolutely.Personal development is our business and our life.
