Who are you working for? Are you working for a living or living for your work? I heard this from a song on Spotify a few days ago. It was one of those things that seemed so simple, but the message behind it is so powerful.
For example, I would say right now it’s 60-40 working for a living. My mindset is %100 living for my work. The reality for me and how I’m living right now is working for a living. I’m not doing what I want to do and would love to do. I have said it before, I still have no idea what I want to do with myself or what my future holds. If I had to choose and decide right now, it’s to become an author and continue to share my unique story with the world.
My Crazy Story
My story is nothing special, and it’s not better than yours. I went through a lot of ups and downs and over a lot of speedbumps over my years. After all this time I finally recognized, maybe it was all supposed to happen like that for a reason? If I want to impact kids and play a role in their life and help them not make the same mistakes that I made. Then I had to go through some tuff times so they fully understand me.
Therefore, I think I’m a perfect candidate to share my story. A kid with an LD and dyslexic who hated school and thought he was being punished every day for something. Now changed his life around and wanted to share that with the world. Try and turn his life into a positive for others. If I can do it so can you. Even for me, I still have more work to do for me to be %100 living for my work.
The Opportunities Are Endless
What if some people have it a lot easier than me? That’s something that bothers me, they don’t have the drive and motivation to do something special or create something new. Not every person that’s financially taken care off is like that, that’s not what I’m saying. What I’m trying to say is this. It’s amazing what having a little extra money in your pockets, and how much more confident you can be with it. What happens if that money is there parents, they didn’t even work for it? They were given that money, they think why should I work?
To this day I would say most people are working for a living instead of living for their work. I understand if you have someone or kids to provide for. I get that and respect what you’re doing, I get it. For me who’s single and still trying to find his way and what’s next. Now would be the perfect time to create something that I want to live for and make something special. Well, that’s what I’m trying to do, there’s only so much free time I have when I’m not working my two paying jobs right now. So, for this future career I’m trying to build I must choose my time carefully and when I’m able to work on it. That’s the hard part and that’s the part that sucks.
The amount of opportunities to this day is still unbelievable and the new opportunities that are being created are endless. All you need to do is figure out what it is you want to do. Find that gap in your life or another person’s life and fill it, and turn that into a positive. That’s what I’m trying to do if you couldn’t tell lately. I have big goals that I’m aiming for and trying to accomplish.
We all should have big goals we’re trying to accomplish and bring to life? It doesn’t matter what your goals are in your life or my life. We all have different interests we enjoy that we do every day. What matters is you don’t settle where you are right now in your life, and with what you’re doing. Why not work that extra little bit and try and create something new and special for the world?
Life is too short to be doing what you don’t want to do in life, and going to a 9-5 that you can’t stand. If it’s making you miserable and you’re unhappy then maybe you should think about what you’re doing with yourself right now? I’m not saying quit Monday morning and say peace and walk out. What I’m saying is take some time and really think about what it is you want to do in life? If money wasn’t on the table and that wasn’t a factor, what would you want to do? If you find something or come up with something, then maybe you should consider that idea you just came up with.
I’m Going All In
If writing doesn’t work out for me like I hope it does, I won’t lie I’ll be very upset and very sad. If that’s the case and I hope it isn’t, well then it wasn’t meant to be for me. But if I can still pursue it on the side and part-time, well then, I’ll take that and I’ll be ok with that. The most important thing to me right now is helping kids that feel like me and felt different in the world. That’s why I’m doing this, that was the final push I needed in life to keep going and finally create this website.
I decided enough is enough, I don’t know if this will work out or not. There’s only one way to find out if it does, and I’m willing to take that gamble. Are you willing to roll the dice and go all in with your life? Life is short and it’s about time we all start living and enjoying our life for a change, and not just working are life away?
