The One Minute Guide To Quitting Corporate Slavery
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing” – Walt Disney
Be prepared to really cut loose
This also means cutting loose from the hindering attitudes of the nine to five-ers by changing your mindset.
It may also mean having to cut loose from the attitudes of some family members and friends as well.
Be ready to accept risk
You have to be prepared to accept some level of risk.
Decide what you want to do instead of your Nine to Five
You don’t have to know exactly what at this stage, but you do need some idea of the direction.
This could mean change of career, learning a new skill, going freelance, starting a business, travelling, or moving to another country. Or maybe some combination of these.
Get your capital together
By capital I don’t just mean savings. Capital also means time, skills, and know-how. You’ll need to have a rough idea of what you need to accumulate and learn in order reach your goal.
Take action and put the show on the road
Researching and planning can go on for ever if you let it. The time is never perfectly right for change. Wait and you can wait for ever.
Just get on and DO IT!
Start doing what you want to do. You’ll learn as you go. The most important thing is to get started on the road.
And last but not least, ignore the responses from people you’ve “left behind”
The nay-sayers and critics will never stop nay-saying and criticizing. It’s just the way it is. Surround yourself with positive like-minded people instead.
Before you know it, you’ll have broken out of the corporate nine to five. You’ll now building your new and better alternative future and on the way to creating the life you really want.
And what’s more there’ll be no going back. It’s that simple.
Too many people try to tell you it’s more complex. But it isn’t. I’ve done it myself and it’s actually no big deal.
But you know what the biggest hurdle is?
No, not money. Not even know-how.
It’s your own attitude and conviction. And the negative influence of other people – if you let it.
As long as you believe in yourself and you’re determined to do what you really want to do – then you will succeed.
And nothing – and nobody, will be able to stop you.
Actually I think that took more than one minute, but you get the drift!
