Image result for wasting time looking for a job

“What do you want to do with your life?” is a common question we’re all asked at some point. It is also one of the stupidest questions to ask. What you really want to say is any where from sitting on the couch all day, streaming Netflix, read a good book (that’s the way), Internet surfing, hang out with friends, and so forth and so on. But if you’re talking about jobs, that’s a whole other stupid question. As much as people don’t want me to say this, but jobs on the whole is either disappearing, pay so little you might as well as be counted as unemployed, and/or take so much of your time that the money you make is nearly pointless. Why would anyone want a job? At best a job is a means to an end; we all know that. Add to that automation, basically technology reducing workload, is becoming more and more a thing and jobs being done by foreign cheap laborers. Let’s be clear. This isn’t a post to slam jobs, but if you’re unemployed, looking for a job, and having a hard time doing so, I got news for you. You’re not useless or broken. Times changed; we have to as well. You have a lot more to do than job search all day.

Now to the topic at hand. You’re right now looking at job posts. Filling out application after application. That’s great and all but if the fish isn’t biting yet, this is hardly the time to fill out more applications until they do. This is where the phrase “what am I doing with my life comes in”. We have 24 hours a day and ticking, and saying what you did all day was searching for a job…well, sounds better than it really is. There’s billions of things you should be doing right now as well. You need to be healthy, you could learn how to make excellent dishes, you could be writing a ground breaking novel, you could be doing something that will help people, you could be mastering different languages. Are you seeing what I getting at? My family tells me what I am doing is getting up, cleaning, reading, and driving places to buy books. When I was working, I was…getting up, cleaning, reading, and driving places to buy books. Nothing’s changed. I was getting any¬† where in life either. You’re going to make yourself crazy by wasting a whole day looking for your next pay check. In order to grow in wealth, you must increase your value, your worth, and y’know actually find what you want to do. Chances are your calling is probably more fulfilling and useful in the long run. The question you should be asking yourself is “what am I working for” and “how could I provide more value.”





Try this exercise out. Forget all that you know, forget what has happened in your life, your experiences, your relationships, even your birth. Everything is a blank space. Make sure you have a paper and a writing utensil nearby. Pretend that now you are the one who writes your fate. Everything that you decide to put on that page is how your life is going to turn out. You are now the author. Now write your story the way you want it. You feel more in control of your life, that you have the power to choose anything. You are the god/goddess of your world. Look at your handy work. You’ve created a new world. That world is now appearing in your world right now. Congratulations, my friend. You just manifested your ideal life



So I’ve been looking through one of my favorite topic channel’s videos on YouTube called Think Tank, and I happen to find a video that quite interests me. Ever wondered what rich people are doing with their time and money? Well, here are some insights:

  1. Buy land so no one could develop it
  2. Buy a giant tank with a sunken ship in it and scuba dive in it
  3. Buy and sell people so that they can fight on the football field
  4. Legally watch current theatrical films in the privacy of their own home theater

I only see four, so I guess here’s a discussion: If you ever became rich, what hobby would you take up for rich people?
