How To Not Suck At Life. Become Your Own Boss!
Do you suck at life? Does it seem like everything you try you get sucked in, stomped on, spit on and then thrown to the curb? Have you had so many jobs you can’t remember the last time you had a job that didn’t use you up and lay you off? Do you dread waking up in the morning? Do you suck at life or do you think you suck at life?
Isn’t it strange how some people seem to get everything handed to them whether it be a nice job, a great partner, a nice house and perfect health and they seem so shallow and unappreciative? Do you secretly wish you could be them? Are you sick of struggling trying this that and the other and getting nowhere. Tired of the loop?
If you are and can identify with any of the above you may not suck at life. In fact you may be a success in the making but you just haven’t found your niche. If you are sick of all the hype, the promises made in dead end jobs, the low pay and the people on the job you just can’t stand, then it may be time for a change. You don’t suck at life, you just need to find what works for you.
Change Your Mindset From Saying No To Yourself To Saying Yes!
That’s right. If you say yes to everyone else and no to yourself all you are doing is setting yourself up for misery. Think about it. Let’s look at a scenario. You have no money, no job and you can’t rub two nickels together. You look for a job but there’s nothing out there. Finally, you find a job with low pay and no benefits. You take the job because you’re thinking it’s better than nothing. Within a few months you’re burned out, the boss has played the back and forth stall game on getting you your check and you see no opportunities for advancement. You speak up and ask for a raise and get told your work isn’t up to par with them. Meanwhile you can barely pay your bills, you are living on the edge of poverty and just can’t quit. Sound familiar? I don’t doubt it does.
I have been there believe me. I have been homeless with no family to fall back on. I have lost crappy jobs that a trained monkey could do and I have worked jobs that sucked so bad with lousy pay that I figured my life was just a huge joke and that everyone else made it but me. But, I tried hard at everything I ever did. In fact I have an honorable discharge from the U S Marine Corps and the US Navy Reserves. I have worked for decades, my last outside job being a commercial electrician and fire alarm installer. In between these jobs were a whole lot of bad jobs. Finally, I was in my mid 40’s and I realized I could no longer do the jobs I used to do. Burned out and lost I labeled myself as being someone who sucked at life. Then I discovered Blogging and earning an income with a niche website.
How Did Blogging Change My Life?
In short blogging helped me to find a passion for something I really wanted to do versus just find a job working for someone else. I started blogging about 5 years ago just writing blogs for people and companies that needed some blogs written. Eventually I started writing my own blogs and using them to earn some small pocket change. It was slow go at first but over time my blog site grew and I because somewhat addicted to the blogging process. I started earning enough to not only run my website but also to earn enough to buy small things I needed, pay a bill or two and finally chill out a bit. I was no longer chasing that nine to five dreaded job.
Now, five years later I am earning enough money on my blog where I don’t have to go to another regular job anymore. I can do what I want when I want and I don’t have someone telling me what to do. That was the one thing I couldn’t stand was having a boss telling me what to do, when to eat, what I was doing wrong and how I could be a better team player. Sure, I played that game for a long time but now in my mid fifties I am completely done with all of that. I worked for myself blogging and writing about topics I like to write about. It’s fun and I get paid and it all started by learning how to write content the right way. Add some products or services and you’re good to go.
Is Blogging For Retired People?
Sure! In fact I consider myself retired now. I have what I need but I also have time to do the things I always wanted to do like fishing or just hanging out doing nothing. Blogging helped me to supplement my income that I received for all those years of working and it gave me to boost to be able to do something fun and earn an income at it.
Retired people on a fixed income can find blogging to be great to not only earn some extra cash but to also keep their minds busy and occupied. When I am not blogging I like to walk, work out and just enjoy life by meeting people and fishing mostly. My goal is to catch the biggest channel catfish in the state I live in.
I hope you found this article helpful and let you realize that you don’t suck at life. We all just need to find something we are passionate about!
