The Dolly Parton song goes : Get up in the morning, Stumble to the kitchen, Pour myself a cup of ambition, Yawning, stretching, tryin' to come alive.Many of us go through that familiar grind in the morning. We head on down to the office and work till it's time to go home. By the time we're home, the kids are fast asleep.
We have time for a shower, snack and some TV before it's lights out and you repeat the whole cycle again.That's great if you really love your job and you're getting your fair share of the perks that come with your job. Many people don't have it so great though. Their bosses are less than understanding, they have to put up with unreasonable demands, deal with angry customers and at the end of the month, their take home pay is just barely enough to cover their family needs. They yearn for a better way to make a living, but they just don't have enough energy to do work out their dreams.
Everybody complains about their job but we seldom think that we can actually change things. We've been conditioned from our childhood to get a good education, then a good job and to work our way up the ladder. Nobody ever taught us that we could BUILD our own ladder instead of climbing up someone else's ladder!.Here are some tips how you can use your time at your current job to build your own ladder and make yourself rich:.Get good at your job.
Learn new skills. Attend that extra training. Go the extra mile. If there's something you can improve, get the right training and improve! Do it with two things in mind ? that you will get better for your current job and that you will eventually use it in the future for your OWN business.
Do your homework..Be realistic.
If there's something you're passionate about, find out more about it and how people make money doing it. Ask people, visit the library, scour the internet. Confidence comes with knowledge and experience. Build on your knowledge first. Experience will come.Network.
