Alternative Career Options was on my mind soon after I realised that the corp world was not the place where I wanted to spend the rest of my working years.
When a few years ago, after a long period of time being a stay-at-home mommy, I got a job within a corporation, I expected great intellectual challenges. But I quickly found myself working long hours on boring and pointless routines. After a few years of executing really dull and meaningless tasks, I stopped hoping that I’d move on to more interesting career within the company. I understood that only keeping my head down, to execute the work they assign and staying low-key was all that was expected of me. Very soon my hopes and dreams were shuttered, when I understood no thriving career was laying around to claim, nor significant reward, nor such pay rise one could consider remaining to slave any longer.
I threw a few tantrums, had good whines and moans, but I couldn’t somehow come to terms with it even though everybody else seems to be reconciled. But deep down I knew I was not going to be the part of the herd.
Confiding to my colleagues was a bad idea. Persisting on using some brains, I was politely told off that the office might not be the place for me. Some of my colleagues started avoiding me, I started represented a threat to them now.
I soon was invited to very “huhu” intimidating meetings with my boss and often with the HR agent too, to show and prove me what a terrible person I was having a negative influence on my colleagues. As from now my colleagues could have an idea and could also start using their brains and that wasn’t why we were recruited in the first place.
So if you still want to slave 9-5, sorry, the 9-6 is more like, in the same company, you need to forget you are a human being. No emotions, no personal input. Or you have a choice to leave and join a similar corporation and this time give it all you have. In other words, you have learnt your lesson, so behave! Nobody wants to hear your opinion, nobody wants to know your name, remember your face or voice. Be nobody or not to be.
Or you can start your Own Business. No boss, no silly tasks, no dull assignments, no intimidating meeting rooms, no HR, no mindless colleagues trying to snitch on you and put you down….
The Freedom Laptop Lifestyle Entrepreneur and I wouldn’t be it without the help of my freedom entrepreneur mentors, who showed me the way to break through, how to reprogram my brain and install new paradigms where fear of success or failure has no place.
And you could be too if you decide to start your Alternative Career Options and turn your hobby into your work, if you decide you never want to work a day and prefer to hustle 24/7 to slaving the 9-6.
It is all about habits and altering our beliefs.
