For the first time in history we are going to earn less than our parents.
The dream of working 40 hours per week for 40 years, and then retiring with a healthy pension to live your remaining years in comfort, are gone.
The term ‘middle class’ is rapidly disappearing, the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer.
Do you think of an action plan? If not you should be.
Looking ahead, where do you see yourself in 10, 20, 30 years in the future?
At the end, leaving your debt that accumulated through the years to your family is not an option.
For some, the daily grind,, the implicit slavery you see yourself in, the never ending matrix of job boredom, seems never ending.
Luckily there are people who teach you how to escape the rat race.
One such way is known as ”un-jobbing”, following a lifestyle of a self prescribed non job manifesto.
This approach is all about pursuing work that you truly love and finding the ways to make that a reality.
Your way of thinking will need new direction.
The traditional career steps of working at something for years that you do not enjoy and then to live out the bit of life left, need not be.
Working at things we are passionate about usually does not pay as well… what you gain in other ways will be immeasurable.
Starting out minimizing your current expensive ways you have become so dependent on, is a major first step.
The mindset needs to turn to a more frugal lifestyle and in that way you become able to afford to work at those things you truly believe in.
Those that practice this way of life rely on multiple smaller income streams.
This is where the necessary money to exist will be derived from.
Now, if of you decide to leave the rat race that your current job has made a reality, there could be consequences.
You must decide what is more important, the financial security of the dreaded job, or pursuing passions that are more congruent to your personal values.
If you feel that living this radical new way is for you, the rewards and excitement of finally breaking out of the rat race will enrich your soul !
