With all the things going on in our lives, it’s really hard to have a good balance between work and personal life.
You know that you have a family to feed, sustain, and take care of.
You’re also aware that spending time with your loved ones is important.
But you also have a job to maintain to put food on the table and keep your family under a comfortable roof.
Every environment and place is different, especially when you’re outside your home.
You have to deal with your officemates, friends, clients, and other people with different types of personalities.
Some will like you as a person and co-worker. While others will treat you like garbage and hate you for no reason.
On top of that, there are bills that are piling you need to pay every month.
All those add to the headache caused by the pressures in life.
Plus, we all have different personal matters that both you and I know we should take care of.
And these pressures in life make managing time between work and life so difficult.
There are times that you want to be free away from all the stress in your daily life.
But you can’t because you have a responsibility to sustain your family’s needs.
And being the breadwinner of your family limits your actions and the liberty to do the things that matter to you the most.
So you’ll continue doing what most people do. Work today, work tomorrow, work until the last day of the year, and repeat the same cycle every year without taking any kind of vacation.
It feels like the entire deck is stacked against the odds. No way of getting out and enjoying life to the fullest.
I understand that feeling of uncertainty and hopelessness as I was in the same situation years ago.
Working 70+ hours in 2 full-time jobs every week wasn’t the most ideal lifestyle.
Hanging out with friends is virtually impossible for me. I don’t have the time to relax in the beach because of my hectic work schedule.
What’s more painful is I can’t visit my parents in my hometown even when I badly want to.
But I have to because I need to send money to support them and pay my college loans.
Is there still a window to enjoy life without slaving yourself to work in this situation?
The answer is YES. But the road won’t be a walk in the park.
You’ll need to put in an incredible amount of effort and hours in extra work.
And when I say extra work, you’ll have to be willing to do what most people won’t do.
You’re going to endure unimaginable hours in the late night to build a secondary source of income.
You’ll dedicate more time to studying your craft to improve and better yourself.
You’ll invest real money to buy courses and books to learn more skills to use in business.
Also, learning how to spend money smart is essential to your success if you’re going to walk the same path as I am.
And I’m telling you right now that many people will try to pull you down along your journey.
They will call you names like ‘stupid’ or ‘dumbass’ for doing things that most of them aren’t doing.
They will tell you that business is only for geniuses and not for ordinary guys.
I’m telling you all these not to discourage you but to be 100% transparent with you. Because this is from my personal experience.
The last thing I’d want to do is to sugarcoat things and make building an online business sound easy like most ‘gurus’ say.
With all that being said, I guess the real question here is…
Are you willing to put in the effort and time to make your dreams a reality?
If so, prove it and take action by starting to learn, invest, and work on the things you need to succeed.
