There is a quote I love that says “Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.” So many times it’s easy for people to lead easy lives and be comfortable with that. As I get older it’s seeing that only some break out of that and no longer want easy lives but the life of their dreams.
Looking at my mother, especially since my mom is a part of the baby boomer generation. She got her degrees, and was a music teacher until she passed. I watched her make lesson plans, do her computer work and take the tests required for her to call herself a teacher. Our lives were easy, I had things and we lived pretty noble.
My life was ease until I realized that I wasn’t happy with living from paycheck to paycheck. I had also lived that way with my mom. I’m not bashing my mom but I realized that’s not for me. The gifts that were put in me, make me desire a different life. No more ease.
I desire to have multiple streams of income, generational wealth and to be more than an employee. It’s up to you to decide that you want more and make those steps. Don’t stop. You must hang in. But don’t you think you are worth it? See you at work
I agree, we don’t have to live that way. We have to look to progress not to stagnate. Thanks!
Thanks! I’m learning 🙂
Great post, loved the quote in the first line. I think so many of us strive to build a better life.
True we do strive but at times we gotta push
