Thank you Dan! Very nice of you to recognize me.
Thank you so much for sharing this piece, Claudia. I was about to come over and share this piece here for our 48 Days community. And boy, I would be happy to hear some disagreements ;)! I would have disagreed with myself only 2 years ago.... To be honest, I thought it was a pretty radical post but reflects truly how I feel about getting a job now - I was shocked how many readers agreed. What are your thoughts? I'd love to know.....
Dear Claudia, there is no worry, everything is fine, I did not take an ounce of offense. Why would I? You were sharing my content - I was just full of gratitude. I was just saying it's interesting that nobody that read that post (at least those who left comments) disagreed with the concept and I was surprised because I thought it's a very radical position to take. I am SO grateful you shared it and I wish you all the best in your endeavors as a teacher (I loved all my teachers :)) and in whatever path you choose next. If I can do ANYTHING to help you, please let me know. :)!
My favorites are # 6 and #7.
"6. You limit your financial security by putting all your eggs in one basket, unless you have several jobs, in which case, you severely limit your health while slightly diversifying your basket."
"7. Speaking of your health, the number one thing you get from getting any job is not money, it’s stress. Stress is the number one reason for countless health issues."
Thank you Farnoosh for the excellent list. I will continue to be an eagle.
Dear Leonard (great name by the way), thank you thank you so much!
Ah an eagle is a beautiful thing to aim for and I am delighted that this list spoke to you. Let me know if I can do ANYTHING to help you on the journey to that eagle, Leonard! :)
Wow, I loved that article. I could see my self in most of what was mentioned. It's funny how you can read something and identify with it totally. I don't know what I am waiting for because I am sure not getting any younger and I am sick to death of the corporate environment. Yes...I am a little fearful since I only have myself to fall back on with a lot of responsibility. Yes, I have been brainwashed as well...
Hi dear Karen, thank you so much. Don't feel bad - don't blame yourself - it's just the conditioning that happens, and it's totally OK to be terrified even, but maybe this will rekindle a fire in you to do something on your own, even if you are still in corporate - I call it a side-hustle, that's how I started my business .... and I totally and completely get where you are. If you want more stories and mindset on this, I give free 21 uncensored tips that you can sign up for.... just let me know and in the meanwhile, I totally hear you - don't blame yourself, just slowly move in the right direction. It WILL pay off!
Excellent...23 rang out to me...I'm so there, and have been for a long time now. Hopefully, prayerfully, i'll be out before Spring of 2013! Thanks!
I'm in most agreement with number 5....well, all the them really...but especially number 5.
5. You give up your freedom, unless your freedom is to be at someone else’s bidding, and to fulfill someone else’s agenda.
