I was having a nice time this afternoon when I was struck by a thought.
I saw myself being afraid.
I was asking myself, “How will you survive in this pandemic?”
I’ve been off work and off salary for close to two months now.
But guess what?
I’ve done more projects than I’ve done in the last one year.
I also earned some cool cash.
While I still look forward to going back to the office, I can’t allow that dictate my life again.
Now, why do so many people depend on employment?
They have not been taught to trust their thoughts and ideas.
They don’t believe in what they can do. They don’t believe they can create things by themselves, take it to the market and sell it at any prize they want to.
So, they wallow in insecurity of jobs. They are afraid of trying things.
So terrible I must confess.
That same question my head asked me is the same question the heads of many ask them. Yet, they run from trying things by themselves while cleaving to a job.
A job is the safest place for them.
I’ll end with this.
A friend of mine just told me few minutes ago, that a friend was laid off. And in their conversation, the friend that was laid off was saying that he’ll not get another job.
He wants to build a business.
He was pained that he worked in an organization for about 4 years and was asked to go with nothing.
Just like that.
Who told you you cannot survive without a job? Who?
