This is one of those questions that I have been searching for, for almost 4 years now and while I still work my day job, I still press on to maybe one day it will happen for me.
I follow people online who do have the work at home life but, as for me, I have yet to see or understand how they got there and not myself.
The work at home life – Is it really possible? Let’s talk about this for a minute shall we?
The work at home life
Wouldn’t that be nice… Never having a boss on your back telling you to hurry up, telling you that your work is not satisfactory or even put you down from time to time so you either go harder to show them up or break down and quit!
I have been there as I am sure many of us have. For almost 26+ years I have endured this kind of treatment and for what?
To make someone else more money than you will ever see or have the fulfillment of saying “Wow, I actually have money left over this week”.
Let me give you an average day for most of us in the construction field.
Work in some of either the worst back breaking, dirtiest, hard core work that would make some quit after an hour to sometimes not so crappy work that you still have to hustle your butt off just to keep the boss happy and not lay you off or even worse, fire you!
I’M AM SO TIRED OF WHAT I DO!!
But, we need to be realistic here I guess. I still need to support myself and family and it is better than taking money from our government which doesn’t pay a hill of beans as it is and so many lazy people out there tend to take advantage of!
For the last four years I have been trying to learn something that at times, I still don’t get or even at times tend to forget how to do…
Yeah, it’s work none the less but, to me seems like that goal that I will either never get or die trying to obtain it.
I am not looking for pity here, that is not what this post is about. It is the honest truth of what I am going through in my head almost daily now for the last few years.
Ever since I got online and tried to start into something that either am not technically savoy enough to accomplish or it could be that I just don’t get it.
I still try though, not sure why, but I try. If it were not for blogging and was just placing ads or some type of affiliate marketing, I would be dead in the water by now and would have thrown my laptop out the window or even worse, just sit there and play games on it everyday.
The work at home life – Is it really possible?
For some, they have had the luck of the draw to get there and for some, not at all.
Did they give it their all before dropping out? Was it something they just did not see the big picture with? Maybe it was their compassion or drive that was lacking.
Either way, people DO drop out after trying this stuff.
I am constantly trying to do what they teach or even show me right to my face but I just have not picked up on their craft completely yet.
Do I quit? Hell no! Why? Because I want to obtain that work at home life as well and do I believe in my heart that it is possible? Of course I do or I would not keep going.
For some who try, maybe it was that they were attracted to what some online call “the shiny metal object syndrome”. Yeah, chasing the money!
I gave up on chasing the money a few years ago after realizing that I was never going to be living in that mansion or driving that Ferrari or eating prime rib every night of the week lifestyle.
For those that do that, you can keep it! I hope you choke on that steak! Yeah, I really mean that. LOL
For me, I just want to get my stories out there, help other people to get there when I get there so I can show those who have tried and tried and never got there that it is possible.
I believe that I, one day will have that life. If I think anything differently then yes, I will be one of those who go and go and go and never get there and eventually fade away. I don’t want that.
You see, I quit drinking almost 4 years ago and I know that “if I put my mind to it, anything is possible” (McFly – Back to the Future).
Sorry if I went off on a tangent at first but hey, I am tired of the forty hour a week work scam, I really am! I been doing far to long making other people rich. I have given most of my life up to those people, it is time for some pay back dammit!
I don’t want to be living off my retirement at the age of 65+ years of age barley able to get around. I want that NOW!
So, the question being… The work at home life – Is it really possible? “I want to believe”. (X-Files)
I say I want to believe that it is possible and for the most part I hope it will happen. Sooner then later.
For now, I will work my crappy job, keep on blogging in the hopes that one day, I will be working from home. Nobody can take that dream away from me other than myself and I am not doing that.
