Get A #Life, Not A #Job

Long gone are the days when the advice to, “go to school and get a good job,” is relevant. I wish someone would have told me to go to #school, start a #business, and #GetALife a lot earlier.  Besides the fact that keeping a #job, good or bad, is beyond our control, we really shouldn’t aspire to work any job with the old school thought that “this is the life.”

We all have #skills and have to work to pay the bills. Sometimes that work is fulfilling, but most of the time it is only what we do to survive.  I feel the most fulfilled when I know I’m exerting my skills and #energy toward the betterment of others in some way.  I want to see and feel the results of my actions. I know we all have multiple #talents and skills that may or may not be used throughout our lifetime, but it is possible to #apply ourselves in various job positions.

I’m not happy working at a job and for someone else all of the time, but the least I can do is give the part of my talents that could be utilized best in that situation. I work a full-time job, started my own #business, and #volunteer in multiple projects.  Each require different skills that I have, some of which wouldn’t be used at all had I not been involved in these different #career aspects.  I think part of getting a life is getting in touch with that which you love to do, can make you better, or help to #improve others.  Sometimes working for other people and businesses is apart of getting your #life that requires meeting other people and exposing yourself to #culture and climate #changes.  Getting your life also means taking responsibility for your finances and career #goals, and learning to manage yourself and others through your own business venture.  It also requires the pure satisfaction of being involved by freely giving your efforts to others’ causes.

In a time when economies and currency shifts cause scares like color-coded #terror alert systems, it would be best to tell younger generations, your peers, and your elders to just #GetALife.  It is never too late to discover yourself through others, and by taking a #chance to live your #dreams to support yourself financially, emotionally, and spiritually.

    I love this. People were so used to that “safety net” called college. Now, we’re living in times where degrees mean absolutely nothing. You can have multiple degrees and still be working fast food jobs. I believe this is the time where people need to invent their own jobs, in a sense. Don’t be afraid to take risk, expand your horizons, and explore the creative efforts of others. There is power in numbers.
