It’s an unfortunate truth that society fails to encourage young adults to become entrepreneurs—and instead, teaches them to become worker bees. Without knowing, young adults head off to college and they are taught how to become steadfast workers who are merely waiting on their next paycheck. When this happens, the person loses any sort of ability to understand what it means to hustle for their own future.
Often, we build the dreams of others when we work for them on a daily basis. We work overtime, we gain additional skills to improve our ability to do their job, and we do all of this for a paycheck that is rarely enough to sustain us. To make matters worse, we then learn that working for someone else is ‘safer’ because it ensures a paycheck every other week. We tend to believe that a bi-weekly check is better than working for ourselves because we fear that we may not have what it takes to make enough money on our own. This fear is exactly what companies hope for young workers today. They rely on a person’s insecurities and doubts about their own abilities—which is why many companies pay just enough to keep a person hanging on.
In this video, you will receive the opportunity to listen in on a conversation by a wealthy business owner who attempts to explain why working paycheck-to-paycheck ultimately kills the entrepreneurial spirit. Everyone has the ability to have their own business and to provide a needed service or product to others. All a person needs to do in order to unlock theses abilities is believe that they have what it takes to become successful. Relinquishing all fears and doubts is the main ingredient to becoming a successful businessperson. The moment a person understands that they have everything it takes to run their own business—and therefore avoid being caught up in the paycheck hamster wheel—they will become the superstar they were always meant to be. It starts with believing in self and avoiding the trap of the paycheck blues at all costs.
