Jobs on Jobs on Jobs!

I aint gonna lie...when I hear people say they have 2-3 jobs its like nails screeching on a chalkboard! 

The shit literally hurts my ears!

but I've evolved in my personal growth, so I don't say anything....

but to me...TWO jobs are for TWO people! 

Don't get me wrong, I totally respect people doing what they have to do to get ends to meet. 

I admire their ambitions to provide for their families by any means possible. 

I love the drive that they have to do the things they don't want to do to get where they want to be.

BUTTTTTTT

That shit doesn't make ANY sense if you ACTUALLY think about it! 

By nature, with your skill sets, if a job isn't providing you the lifestyle you need or want...what would adding a second (often part time for less money and less benefits..if they exist) give you that the first (often full-time for more money with benefits) couldn't? 

Follow me on this thought process. 

Wouldn't you agree that your job not providing enough income for you is a problem

I think most would. 

Even though most people would, what do most people do next?

 Go get another job. 

Basically that would be getting more of the problem that has them in this position in the first place...no? 

In essence, the job isn't providing what I need so I'm going to get one or two more lesser versions of the thing that has me fiscally unfit to solve that problem. 

Einstein said it best...

“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”

That's like wanting to lose weight and eating three meals at a time instead of three meals in a day. If that's your thing, go for it, but know that you're fighting an uphill battle in a system that just doesn't work for most people. There has to be more to your life than working jobs just to make money to work more jobs. 

Are you working to live, or living to work? 

What are your thoughts? 

I'd love to hear from you

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your
