Get a​ Jump On Retirement- Part 5- Increase Your Earning Potential
One of​ the easiest ways to​ retire early is​ to​ make more money .​
Easier said than done, right? Wrong .​
Most people do not use their biggest resource to​ its fullest advantage when it​ comes to​ making more money .​
What is​ that resource? The simple answer is, themselves.
The fact is, most people do not like their jobs or​ their careers .​
They go to​ work because they have to, not because they want to .​
As a​ result of​ not wanting to​ go to​ work they do not put in​ the effort to​ help them make more money, which is​ understandable .​
I​ was one of​ those people for the first nine years of​ my career .​
I​ always talked about doing something I​ enjoyed but never did anything about it .​
I​ would come home from work mentally drained, after having spent ten hours committing to​ a​ job I​ hated .​
The last thing I​ wanted to​ think about once I​ got home was work .​
I​ understand the cycle most people go through.
How do you change it? The first thing you need to​ do is​ want to​ change it​ bad enough you are willing to​ take action .​
I​ talked about it​ for years and did nothing until I​ finally couldn’t deal with my situation anymore .​
Now I​ am making three times more money than I​ made at​ my previous job .​
And, it​ isn’t even all about the money, I​ am just happy to​ be doing something I​ love doing .​
It is​ not work for me to​ put in​ a​ few extra hours, like it​ was before .​
I​ no longer sit behind a​ gray cubicle wall .​
I​ no longer have to​ do things I​ do not believe in​ just because my boss told me I​ had to​ do it .​
I​ am no longer being accused of​ not being a​ team player because I​ didn’t attend an​ after-hours work event.
Let me give you an​ analogy .​
Let’s say a​ carpenter is​ starting to​ frame a​ house and he only has a​ screwdriver for tools .​
Sure, he will be able to​ bang in​ the nails with a​ screwdriver .​
It will take a​ lot more effort and be much less efficient but it​ will get done eventually .​
Once he picks up the hammer, or​ even better, an​ air hammer he will much more productive and happy .​
If you show up to​ your job (screwdriver) because that is​ all you have you may make a​ nice living, you may be able to​ pay your bills, and you may get to​ retire in​ the future but if​ you find your perfect job (hammer) you will be much happier in​ life, be more productive, and get much more out of​ life than if​ you stay where you are now.
What most people don’t realize is​ the biggest roadblock to​ their success in​ most cases is​ their own mind .​
Many people have either grown-up with a​ lack of​ support from parents or​ they get mentally beaten up by bad managers at​ work, or​ whatever .​
Poor self-image is​ one of​ the major reasons people fail in​ life .​
They have been lead to​ believe they can’t do something so they don’t even try it .​
They just continue on with the status quo and hope for a​ 3% raise each year, and are happy when they get it.
If you are serious about improving your life I​ would recommend reading Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, and See You at​ the Top by Zig Ziglar .​
These two books help show you reasons people fail and what you need to​ do to​ succeed .​
The best news is​ you have hope .​
You are a​ couple weeks away, if​ you read at​ least one of​ those books, to​ improving your life and your earning potential .​
is​ it​ time for you to​ make a​ change yet?
