Are you truly tired of taking orders from someone else? You are not alone. The truth is that there are millions of people that really are. It seems like everyone who works under someone else would love to be able to say bye, bye to their underpaying, dead-end, 9 to 5 job. Unfortunately, the majority of workers that feel this way do absolutely nothing about it.

Why is that?

There are many reasons why people won’t take the time to pursue their own dreams and financial goals. One reason is the fear of failure. Nobody wants to be the one to go against the grain by trying to obtain financial freedom, only to come up empty-handed. Negative influences are another reason why potential entrepreneurs deter from the idea of being their own boss.

These influences could be friends, family, or even co-workers that constantly remind you that where you are now is where you will remain for the next 25 to 30 years (assuming your job has a decent retirement plan). Hearing that on a regular basis can do some serious damage to one’s self-esteem. The last but definitely not the least reason is settling. Everyone would love to be able to do what they want when they want, be able to purchase what they want, when they want, without worrying if it will affect that month’s rent. Instead, the average 9 to 5 worker just settles. They create their whole way of living around an unsatisfying check that is just getting them by.

Take Action!

To be completely honest, not one of the reasons stated above is reason enough not to lead the life that you desire and well deserve. Do not be afraid to take chances by following your true dreams, turn that daydream of yours into a reality. Feed off of that burning desire inside you to better the lives of your loved ones and you. Rid yourself of negative people and things that discourage you. Do not fall into that category of; Wow, that would be nice, but I can’t get it. Do not hesitate in obtaining the knowledge and tools that you will need to help you get to where you want to be in your career as well as in your life. Keep these things in mind, and you’ll be well on your way to.

Becoming your own boss!
