Recently, I did something that I haven’t done in years.
I sat down on the couch and watched the national nightly news.
You know, the flagship news report that most “normal” people watch every night with great anticipation.
Anyway, within 5 minutes, I realized why I had stopped watching that filth a long long time ago.
In fact, the lead story did such of a great job of pissing me off that they should win an award.
I got so fired up from the shit that I saw that I couldn’t even fall asleep that night.
I woke up at 3 am just to start writing the first draft of this post because I had to get the words out before I exploded.
By now, you probably want to know what it was that got me so fired up.
Well, I’ll tell ya right now.
The U.S. Government Shutdown
At the time of this post, the United States federal government is on a shutdown that has lasted for over 15 days now.
This means that somewhere around 800,000 U.S. government employees won’t be receiving their precious little paychecks.
That’s right, a bunch of morons that entrusted their livelihood to someone else are now getting fucked in the ass with a red hot poker, with no one to blame but themselves.
Instead of building their own businesses and relying on themselves, those people decided to be a slave to money and depend on someone else to provide for them.
And now they have nothing.
But Here’s What Really Pissed Me Off
In the midst of all the chaos, The U.S. government decided to send out pamphlets to the laid-off workers which gave them suggestions about how to make money until the shutdown is over.
They suggested things like have a garage sale, walk dogs, watch other people’s children, and complete online gigs.
All valid solutions if you ask me.
But you know what these morons have decided to do instead?
Waste time by making signs and protesting.
They’d rather blame others for their financial problems instead of themselves.
THIS PUT ME OVER THE EDGE.
I quickly turned off the TV and started working on other things.
And this got me thinking…
Jobs are for losers!
9 Reasons Why Jobs Are For Losers
Reason #1 – Jobs Create A False Sense Of Security
Most people in the world have a job. And believe it or not, I understand why.
They want to feel safe and secure. That small paycheck that gets deposited into their bank account every two weeks keeps them going.
They know it will be there come rain or shine and that is a very comforting feeling…
Until they get fired. And the checks stop.
The truth is that the average person today has 10… yes that’s TEN, different jobs before the age of 40. (source)
Everyone, no matter how good they are at their job, gets fired at some point.
Life isn’t perfect and shit is eventually going to hit the fan.
Your car will get stolen, you’ll be fired from your job without notice, you’ll lose everything in a house fire with no insurance, yadda yadda yadda.
Eventually, something is gonna go down.
The question is…
Will you be prepared?
Will you choose to start working on a side business every day after you get home from your 9-5?
Will you curse your luck and blame your employers and everyone else when things go wrong?
Think about it, if you can be fired from your job at any second for no reason at all or lose everything in one traumatic event, how safe are you?
Reason #2 – Jobs Make You Dependent
Having a job is the same thing as being on a government welfare program.
You depend on other people, in this case, a company, to provide you with food, clothing, and shelter.
If the payroll at your job decides to pay you late, your fucked.
When you get fired from your job, your fucked.
But but but
I work for my money man! I’m not on welfare!
Listen, friend, if you depend on another person or entity to provide you with your financial livelihood, you are no better than the welfare bums.
The only difference between you and them is they are smarter.
They realized that they can get by just as well by exploiting the system while you toil away at a job in a cubicle day after day.
And the really fucked up thing about that whole equation is that the taxes that are automatically taken out of your paycheck every week go right to the bums.
Your hard work pays for other losers.
Amazing isn’t it?
Reason #3 – You Can’t Follow Your Passions
85% of people worldwide hate their job and it’s easy to understand why. (Source)
You don’t get to work on your passions.
You don’t get to be creative.
You’re stuck doing mundane tasks day after day after day.
And for what?
A measly paycheck.
Have you ever noticed that the most financially successful people in the world (actors, comedians, entertainers, athletes, entrepreneurs) all have one thing in common?
They all followed their passions.
They simply said fuck it and went all in on doing shit that they loved and made it happen.
But Nick, plenty of people try that and fail.
Yeah, well those people failed because they didn’t really go all in.
They had a plan B. When you even think of having a plan B you’ve already failed.
Reason #4 – You Must Ask Permission For Everything
Hey bossman, can I use some of my vacation days?
Hey bossman, do I have permission to be sick today?
Hey bossman, can I stop working for 5 minutes to use the bathroom?
Those words are uttered by some poor bastard at a job every single day.
I know this because I’ve been on both sides of the equation.
I’ve been a little worker bee and a big boss man.
At the age of 25, I was in charge of a team of 50 customer service reps.
Some of these people were much older than I, yet they would call me there boss.
They would literally beg and plead with me to get time off or increase the amount of daily bathroom time that they got.
Imagine that! A grown 40-year man asking a 25-year-old kid if they can have more time to pp and poo poo.
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with this world?
Of course, I’d always shrug it off and tell them I didn’t care and I didn’t give a good god damn what they did.
But other members of management weren’t so nice.
Reason #5 – The Management God Complex
Have you ever noticed that job reviews for a potential employer all say the same thing?
Great coworkers and work-life balance, but management was terrible.
Management is rude and awful. I’d never recommended working for this company ever!!!
Well, I’ll tell you why that is.
When one human is given power over other humans they become cruel.
This is why everyone hates management. Because power turns people into assholes.
I mean, I was considered a nice boss and I still had some people that hated my fucking guts.
It’s just the way it is.
So, why not avoid all that bullshit altogether and become an entrepreneur?
Reason #6 – Jobs Limit Your Income
Having a job will always handicap your income earning potential.
No matter how hard you work, you will always make a set amount of money.
Why do that to yourself when every little thing in life costs money?
Why not work for yourself and make as much money as you want?
Reason # 7 – Jobs Steal Your Soul
When you work at a job, you are forced to put on a mask.
You must become an emotionless cog in the machine that does what he’s told.
If you voice your true opinion on something, you’ll be dealt with.
And don’t forget, If you’re a male in the workplace today you have a giant target on your back.
Piss off little Susie during your lunch break and all she has to do is tell HR that you “made her uncomfortable”.
Yeah, at that point you can pretty much kiss your job goodbye.
Reason # 8 – No End Game
The idea of an easy retirement at the age of 65 is nothing but a bad joke.
That literally doesn’t exist anymore unless you’re a high-level executive making at least $150,000 a year.
Not to mention that you would need to hold that job for most of your life.
Even if it was a real thing, why the hell would you want to work your life away until you’re an old wrinkly motherfucker?
What’s the point of being free when you’re already dead?
Reason # 9 – Coworkers
This is the biggest reason why I had to quit working regular 9-5 jobs forever.
I couldn’t stand working alongside retards any longer.
I hate to say but it’s true.
Most. People. Are. Fucking. Dumb.
Fat Becky is on a different diet every week, Jim down the hall thinks he’s the funniest man on Earth but tells the worst jokes ever, Tim in the cubicle next to you throws temper tantrums when things don’t go his way etc.
I just couldn’t take it anymore.
So I left.
You see, I didn’t leave the 9-5 life and start working online to become a rich man.
I could care less how much money I make as long as I can survive.
Truth is, I just had to get away from all of the retards that work 9-5s.
I literally couldn’t stand their presence any longer.
I was sick of spending most of my day with people that I’d never spend 1 minute with otherwise.
You Can Be Free
Most people think they can’t be an entrepreneur but they are all so very wrong.
If you can spend 8 hours a day making money for someone else, you can spend 8 hours a day making money for yourself.
Use the knowledge that you already possess and build something.
It really is that simple.
