Can you love Mondays the same or even more than other days of the week?
To love Mondays! Where are we heading with this article, you may ask? Well, if we turn around the question a bit and say: “Thank God it’s Friday!”, then I assume that the topic sounds more familiar.
It all boils down to the relationship between your work and your free time. In spite of a tremendous growth of independent entrepreneurs and business owners, the traditional model still represents the situation for the majority of people.
You have a job, typically a 9-5 job, Monday to Friday. Depending on your position your tasks to execute are well defined, and for your performance, you get paid. You are trading your knowledge and experience for money.
The position for which you were hired, defines in detail through a job description what the company and your boss are expecting from you. As always, there are tasks you like more and tasks you like less. However, your boss doesn’t care. He hired you to perform in a certain way, and for that performance, he pays you.
To love Mondays isn’t that easy, after a long and pleasant weekend together with the family, knowing that on Monday morning you’re back doing something you’re not very passionate about.
The main argument people have to continue their corporate job, is usually money related. You need a salary to pay bills and fulfill other financial obligations.
Reviewing all different surveys available about satisfaction at work is curious. No report is known so far, where the money comes in the first place as a priority to find satisfaction with your job.
Would It Be Possible To Love Mondays With Another Job?
Today it’s Saturday and whole long weekend in front of you. But a lot of people can’t even enjoy their weekends, and on Sunday evening they are flying around like a bee in a bottle. Why?
Most probably it’s because you aren’t 100% happy with your job. Maybe, your stress level is increasing due to all expectations on your performance. People even get sick if the degree of anxiety exceeds certain levels.
Most people spend their best 40 years in life working 40 hours a week. Hey, that’s a lot of time! The working place is the place where we spend most of our time awake. You have one single life (as far as I know), and shouldn’t it be nice to put in some quality to the short life we have on this planet?
Now, I have to admit that during many years I have been in the situation I describe here. I was constantly working, and practically there was no free time, as the weekends also were absorbed by work.
It was a constant rat-race where the lack of time didn’t allow to think about alternatives. The wheel was spinning faster and faster at the same pace the expectations on your performance was increasing.
In my case, and I do believe a lot of people can identify themselves with my story, the change came when I expected it less.
By mere chance, I came across an ad talking about online affiliate marketing. From there, my life changed 180 degrees.
How To Escape The Rat Race And Start To Love Mondays?
After digging into the online marketing world, I found out that you need three fundamental pillars in place, to successfully be able to create a business that will give you total freedom for the rest of your life.
No.1 You need to find a reason, your why – (Read my article “What Is Your Why?” of the 13th of April, 2016), you need to be 100% convinced that you need to add something to your life that will force you to do things differently. In many cases, we accept life as it is, claiming that it’s your destiny in life. This is the main reason why a lot of people are “suffering through” their lives instead of living it as it should be.
You’ll always have the option to decide the route you would like to take. Earlier it was harder to escape from the traditional “rat-race”-like jobs, as the alternative to go independent implied huge investments. Today it’s different, and frankly speaking, it doesn’t exist any reason at all to not at least try the alternatives in the market. You can even try it out part-time during weekends, before taking the decision to quit your corporate job.
No.2 You need to have a passion for what you are doing – Without passion, you will get bored pretty soon, tired and reluctant to what you are doing. Being an independent entrepreneur requires a lot of work and dedication, but at the end, you are achieving your goals and not building the dreams of your boss. Some people will love this independent adventure, and some won’t. We are all different, and it has to be respected. However, as you can try this out in your spare time, it opens up a door for people to try, without resigning from their corporate job.
No.3 Let the money work for you – With the online business, automation is an essential part of the success. The marketplace is the Internet world, and you will have access to billions of people with your marketing. To manage efficiently such a huge market, you’ll need to have tools. Once the tools are in place, you’ll just leverage and get the system to work for you, In other words, you are not working for the money as you do in the corporate world, but rather the money is working for you.
Do You Start To Love Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday….?
Of course, there are well-paid employees around everywhere, but normally their high income is a result of a huge number of working hours per week, together with their unique professional skills and knowledge. This group of people is usually so called “workaholics” and will never have time to do anything else but working.
The nice thing about online business and with a strategy where you invest your earned money in such way that it starts to work for you is that you can be wherever you want in the world without losing the grip on your business.
A laptop and the internet and you are “at work.”
The working place can be at home, with your children and grandchildren, at the beach resort of your preference, exploring new countries on the journey of your dreams, or wherever you prefer.
