A lot of people hate MON – FRI routine. Basically, the vast majority of people hate their jobs and count the seconds for the weekends. And after spending 40 years in this routine, they retire financially broken and emotionally fucked. It’s insane in the same proportion how real this are. Many things about this truth needs be dissecated to understand how to avoid this scenario.
Traditional Educational System
Nothing this teached in classroom really helps you becoming sucessfull or rich. The traditional education system doesn’t have commitment in transform you a success person. He have the commitment in tranform you in a person with minimum skill labour, with enough health to produce and pay taxes as long as possible.
In capitalist (and communist) countries, the guidelines of traditional education system is defined by the government. And schools – whether private or public – just follow the rules. At the end of the day, teachers have a huge conflict of interest to teach about success: the vast majority of them don’t have real knowledge to speak and teach about financial success.
By the way, in elementary, high school, college, and anywhere, the teacher does not teach you to think for yourself, it teaches you to think like someone else. If you just follow all the content design for you, what do you expect about your future? The same result by the vast majority of students.
The Dead End Job and Illusional Good Job
Most students will not be successful. They get stuck in the Dead End Jobs or Illusional Good Jobs
Dead End Job: minimal skills, little pay, few or no opportunities for growth, minimum creative or intellectual involvement. These conditions are found in the vast majority of jobs around the world.
Illusional Good Job: some illusion of happiness, importance, knowledge, financial and social reward. But invariably leave anyone with a fucking depression and countdown to a poor retirement.
Adding to these harsh realities, I believe that 99% of the population fits into one of them. In both cases, you simply work hours and you get paid your hourly wage. You are essentially a money making machine for someone else.
“- Okay, but I’m ultra specialized. I am irreplaceable. I did two colleges, three masters, eight hundred doctorates, an MBA on Harvard, another in Yale … This MUST be rewarded! I make a difference to the company!”
This thought is foolish. All positions in company, except the owner, are temporary. No one gives a shit about their titles. You are only important for the money you add to the owner’s bank account. No one cares about your student debt and the difficulties you’ve had until you get to college.
To become really rich you must be an owner. Ownership is not the most important thing. IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT COUNTS. You will never get rich off of an annual salary or hourly wage.
If you want to be rich, you are not looking for a ‘job’, except as a launch pad or as a chance to understand a particular industry. A job is merely something to keep you to put food on your plate.
People always believe they are exceptions. It will be? Walk the streets of your city and see the face of the workers. Sounds like an exception? Unhappiness at work is the rule.
To avoid being a broken and fucked person in retirement, you should think seriously about the following points:
- Formal education does not separate winners from losers. In fact, if you do not look for alternative education, it exponentially increases the chance of you being part of the “I hate my life” group.
- Employee are an interesting definition to define the one that makes the business owner make money. Nothing wrong with being an employee. But you can not be an employee and want to be (really) rich at the same time.
- You will become wealthy if you are the owner of a successful business. If you are an employee of a successful business, you will receive a salary, perhaps a bonus and a ‘thank you’ accompanied by a company watch in his sixties. That’s the main difference you should always keep in mind.
- Always remember what happens to 99% of students (the future of the working class): they buy lottery tickets and dream of becoming rich but haven’t a hope in hell of achieving any such thing. You know the odds of the lottery, right?
