I went out with a friend and while waiting to get something done, he received a message.
The countenance on his face changed and when I enquired he said.
"If you see the message someone sent me eeh, that message got me thinking"
Me; what's the message about?
Him: reading from his phone "Salary is the bribe you are paid to forget about your dream, no salary earner has ever made Forbes list".
He went on to say, ' I've worked for 7 years with my company, I can't see much improvement or changes since then.
Most of the people I started the business for at that time are successful and well to do. The serious once are better off than myself.
How come I've never thought of this in a long time.
I smiled looked at him and said, this one really got to you.
In as much as I agree that no salary earner has ever made it to the Forbes list, I know salary is not a bribe to forget your dream.
Salary to me is a means to sustain yourself and fund your dreams.
But the problem most salary earners make is that they feel comfortable and satisfied with whatever they are earning.
Some don't even dream at all, they simply go from one job to another. Remaining at the same level year after year.
When I left my job about a year ago, I didn't have a plan set out, I just believed I was going to make more than I was paid at that time.
I just wrote a resignation letter and after a month I left the job without any savings.
That was a very terrible decision, the consequences were severe.
I went hungry, unable to take proper care of myself for a while until I found my footing and things began to turn around.
Today when people see me, they commend me for living my Job as where I am now looks good on me.
When they ask where u work now, I simply tell them I'm not working at the moment or I simply smile and laugh off the question.
Reason I do that is because, they won't understand it when I tell them I'm a writer and digital marketer who also has an online platform where I sell furniture and ladies wear.
Why did I share the above, it's for salary earners to note the following.
*The money you are paid may sustain you right now but won't always Do you ever think of what happens if you suddenly lose the job?
*Learn to save more money to fund your dream while still at your job. This is your best way to plan an exit.
*Start a side hustle while still working and when the hustle begins to pay you more than you are earning, then you can think of leaving.
*If the hustle doesn't interfere with your Job, kindly keep the job while making extra from your Hustle.
When you do the above, there will be a certain aura of accomplishment in you.
You will be secured financially and fulfilled while taking good care of yourself.
Remember no salary earner without a dream has ever made Forbes list.
If you've not been doing any of the above, now is the right time to start.
Set your foundation right, if the wind or storm comes, you will be standing tall.
Note: This also applies to business owners who are frustrated because of an unfulfilled Dream. Kindly fund your dream from the salary you pay yourself.
When this is done, you will be satisfied and happier, an unfulfilled life is not worth living.
To your happiness and financial freedom.
