We always hear about how it takes money to make money and today that finally clicked in my head. Like really clicked. I always understood it, but now it has resonated with me, my outlook on life and my goals. That saying and this quote “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results” go hand in hand to me because it is insane to invest in yourself without any type of profit. Whether that profit is money or knowledge or recognition is up to you but it is all the same in that matter or results. Now to the story.
I was just getting out of the shower, where I do my best thinking, and BAM it hit me like a train. I realized that literally every job requires money to make money. Any job that requires a college degree of any kind obviously cost money because as we know college is not cheap. Then we have the “typical” jobs that do not require a degree do require gas money and possibly other fees. Also, we can not leave out Direct sales jobs and YouTube. Direct Sales requires a start-up cost plus the other 60% to 75% of your sales that goes back into the company, and YouTube you have to pay for nice equipment so that you can make quality videos and 45% of your earnings goes right back to YouTube. These examples show you that the statement is accurate no matter what job field you are in.
This will and has taken effect into my life by the following reasons; I took out student loans, I have to travel for my job now, I am about to work for a Direct Sales Company and I want to run a business one day, which is start-up cost and most likely an investors percentage. When I look at that little short list all I see is $$$. Now there is no problem with that nor is there a problem in investing money into your career. The problem would be if you do not get a payout from your “investment.” Then that would be another form of insanity to me. WHY……? Well because if we are investing all of this money to get nothing in return nor any actual improvement then we are crazy. Like I said at the start of this post it is crazy not to receive some type of “profit” for your investment. Most people do not go to college because they love school. They go that they can get a well-paying job later. Now if they do not get said job then what was it all for. Even if they do get the job; how long will it take before you have earned back what your education cost in the first place?
Most people do not go to college because they love school. They go so that they can get a well-paying job later and because that is seen as what we are supposed to do . Now if they do not get said job then what was it all for. Even if they do get the job; how long will it take before you have earned back what your education cost in the first place? In 99% of these cases, knowledge is power. You know what knowledge can come at the rare price of free or a least a whole lot less than $30,000. So what is it that I am saying to you? I am saying that the “normal” way does not have to be your way. Invest in yourself whatever way you like and whatever way you feel would be most profitable to you. Do not go around wasting your money and/or time in something that will not make you better in any way that matters to you.
Me personally after this I am going to reevaluate my goals and how I want to go about reaching them. More than likely it will not be the cookie cutter because I am not cookie cutter. I did not put MISFIT in the blog’s name because I thought that I was normal and was a follower. No, I will write my own rule book to how my life will go and then an autobiography about how it all worked and guess what? You can do the same too; if you want.
