I came across this awesome video from Joe Rogan today, where he really nails what’s wrong with our thinking as a society today.
We have been conditioned to believe that we have to have these jobs where we hate what we do for our entire lifetimes, just to pay the bills each month.
I’m not saying that jobs aren’t sometimes necessary in life, but I don’t believe in spending all of your life working doing something you hate.
Some people LOVE their jobs, and what they do, and that’s perfectly fine – I’m not referring to those people.
There are even people who LIKE their jobs, and that’s perfectly fine too – I’m not referring to those people either.
I’m referring to people who hate their jobs, and who spend all of their spare time bitching and complaining about their jobs, but they won’t do anything about it.
In this video Joe Rogan calls out people like that:
The reason I really liked this video is because I used to be one of those people.
When I started working in the corporate world back in 1999 I actually enjoyed it at first.
I was in the tech sector and I loved it.
But by the time it was 2008 I had lost all my passion for working in the corporate world, for publicly traded corporations.
One day I realized that this passion was gone, and so I made the decision to leave the corporate world and my cushy six-figure salary as well.
Dec 31st, 2008 was my last day of working in that type of job setting and it was a turning point in my life.
It was videos similar to this one which lit a fire under my butt and made me uncomfortable enough to start pursuing my passion for entrepreneurship and I’m grateful for being exposed to them.
If you’re feeling stuck in a dead-end passionless job in the corporate world, I recommend joining Empower Network and taking the first step towards your freedom.
