All we have in life is our mind and who can use his/her mind properly
will never suffer hunger. One of the reason why I hate being an
employee is that, instead of giving you the environment to think like a
billionaire, employments keeps you thinking like an average guy or even a
poor person. Once I started associating myself with positive minded
people I regularly started receiving positive text messages and emails
from them. One of the emails I received has a headline titled “how
billionaires think”. The emails goes like; If your boss paid you
600,000 every month and you saved all that money without touching even a
single coin, you would need to work for 36 months or 3 years to get 21
million. But if you convinced an organization like the UN to give you a
printing job for only 5,000 umbrellas and you made 4,000 per each
umbrella, that would be 5,000*2,000=20,000,000 in only one day.
It becomes crazy if you want to become a billionaire
The lesson learned this email is that, if you want to be rich you
have to stop dealing with Bosses because in my point of view, with that
you will never be rich beyond your wildest dreams. So if you want to be
real super rich start dealing with customers or clients not Bosses. It
becomes crazy if you want to become a billionaire, let say your boss
pays you 1M per month and you saved all that money again without
touching even a single coin. This means that in a year would only have
12million.In other words, it would need you to work for 84 years to get 1
billion (now, think about your age “how old are you?”). This is why I
hate being an employee and why I became an entrepreneur. Whichever way
you may want to use to make your 1 Billion, my question to you is, who
do you want to be dealing with (customers or clients not Bosses)?
Complaining Gets You Nowhere
One of the reasons why most people don’t start their own businesses
is because they complain about the external environments not being right
to them. They complain about their employers, bosses, supervisors,
fathers, mothers, uncles, aunties and other relatives not helping them
start their own business. The Good news is that, to these type of
people, complaining is the only action they can do it successfully. The
bad news is that, complaining gets you nowhere.
You will always experience difficulties, hardships, and failures
Previously I said who you are, is more important than what you for a
living. The reason why most people are not successful in their life is
because, they complain about the external environments not being right
to them. They complain about other people not helping them which it
should be the other way around. Most people complain because, they allow
their mistakes define who they are in life. And the problem with
allowing your mistakes define who you are is that, in life you will
always experience difficulties, hardships, and failures.
The big secret behind Entrepreneur Elon Musk
Whenever I teach people how to stop complaining I always tell my
students to be like Elon Musk! When they ask me why, I say that, Elon
wanted a new payment method on the internet and so he created pay pal.
He wanted an innovative electronic car and so he founded Tesla motors.
He then wanted to give people the chance to go space and so he created
space X. if you look too close to what Elon Musk does, you will discover
that, he is not complaining about how the world is but rather he
changes it. This is also why I recommend, you to make a very conscious
decision to never waste time complaining. Instead, collect yourself,
take adequate time to fully understand what you are complaining about,
and pick apart how you’re going to avoid the same situation in the
future or just like Elon Musk do something to eliminate the cause of
your complaints. And If you’re serious about stop complaining, here are
some realistic tips for you.
1. Start By Defining What A Complaint Is. …
2. Track How Often You Complain And What About. …
3. Separate Yourself From Chronic Complainers. …
4. Turn Complaints Into Solutions. …
5. Use The “But-Positive” Technique. …
6. Change “Have To” To “Get To”
After that, it’s time to move on and tackle your next set of goals, otherwise you’ll allow your mistakes to define you.
Believe in Yourself.
In the end, your success as an entrepreneur will be defined–more than
anything else–by how much you believe in yourself and your ability to
prevail over all obstacles you’ll inevitably face. Don’t allow the
excuses of lacking an Ivy League education, having inadequate financial
resources, and repeated initial failures go on to define who you are.
Know deep down that you’re going to be successful, commit yourself to
making it happen, and nothing can stop you.
Bringing It All Together;
Don’t switch jobs; start your own business. This is my advice to everyone I meet. But
first, to make sure you don’t revert back to being an employee you will
have to know and understand how power, control, leverage, productivity,
money and freedom can work against you when you are an employee. This
is why I recommend you taking my book; Why I Hate Being An Employee.
This book concentrate of me explaining why I hate being an employee by
introducing you to these six concepts, what are they, why they are
important, and most importantly how being an employee can make them work
against and probably sabotages your level of success in business and
life in general. It is my belief that, when you are fully aware of how
these core concepts can work against you when you are an employee, just
like me, you will completely hate being an employee and start your own
business. And that is what this book is all about.
So, Tell me whether you are an employee or an entrepreneur, does power, control, leverage, productivity, money and freedom work to your advantages?
