Are you sick of waking up in the morning, dreading going to work….living for the weekend…? then you should consider to get out of 9 to 5 and live your dream life instead.
Get out of 9 to 5
If your answer above was YES.. then this blog post can potentially give you the missing piece of the puzzle. The puzzle you need to change your life. If you take action that is.
In this article, I will tell you why I started my online business. Also why a business based on my dreams, passions, and values was the solution to all of my problems. That includes my happiness. It also includes the time I have to spend with my loved ones and on my favorite activities. As well as my ability to write my own paycheck and enjoy geographical freedom.
The 9 to 5 Background
You see, a global industry has for more than a century chained people to office chairs and machines, killing our happiness. At the same time, they have been spewing out eco-killing debris that is killing the blue planet we call home. This is a part of “the big lie” that started with the invention of the machines in factories.
In the aftermath of the machines, new society structures split families. As thousands of people moved from their homes to work in factories, they were linked to a machine for most of the day. Fueled by promises of a salary and a beautiful life where they could buy a house for their family. They started the long road of working to pay the bank.
They ended up spending their entire life working on the factory owners’ dream. Being a slave to the bank and the interest rates they demanded, keeping them hostages at their factory jobs. Most people found it impossible to get out of the 9 to 5 hamster wheel with the new debt obligations being the social norm. So people ended up working harder, hoping that the solution would fall on their heads because they felt powerless to do anything about the situation.
The 9 to 5 life as we know it
Struggling to have enough time, money and freedom is still average life for 95% of us. Have you ever asked yourself; How am I going to tell my family that we can’t go on that vacation we dream of? Did you ever have to tell your kids that you cant come to see them play or perform because you have to be at work? How about having to choose between work and following your old sick father to the hospital?
We all know that we chose wrong when we sell out our family to please our boss. Not because we want to, but because we feel that we have to. That makes it that much harder to disappoint the people we love.
Most of us never understood that we had the power to build a happy meaningful life that we truly felt fulfilled by. Because we grew up with the old school influence of getting an education to work for a big company. We have been misled from childhood.
Growing up with the pressure of better grades to get into a respectable college, we took on massive debt. We did this to get a so-called “respectable job” that indicates we have succeeded in life. Before we knew ourself we were trapped in the pursuit of a life that society designed for us.
Now we are left with a devastating inheritance; depressed, obese and confused, with broken families and a natural world in crisis. Gallup statistics show that 85% of people hate their job or are unfulfilled in their careers. I certainly recognize the pain in my gut as every fiber of my body dreaded going to work, to face another day with the bully.
Do you ever try to convince yourself that this is just the way life is? I did for a long time…
After 100 years as slaves to these social norms of selling our time and values for money to pay bills until retirement, change is finally on the horizon. More and more people are waking up to the ugly truth…
A paradigm shift going into the new decade
The good news is that these old money-making machines and the jobs they offered are about to disappear to automation and new technology. Many people will sadly have blinders on and get caught in mass lay-offs as the new machines take over. But the self-aware people will see the possibilities that the digital shift is offering.
That is why understanding what is happening and how to use it to our advantage is essential survival skills going into the new decade. The traditional way of doing business is disappearing in digital opportunities of building eCommerce and lifestyle businesses online.
New digital industries are growing at an average rate of 20 – 25% a year. This shift is giving each and every one of us the opportunity to build authentic lifestyle businesses. Where eco-friendly solutions and personal service businesses will offer new ways to solve problems and make money in the future digital world. Most people don’t realize that they already have the opportunity to leverage technology and build a business from home. All it takes is a pc and internet connection to get online and learn from the best.
The wake-up call
Are you aware of the possibilities you have to live a better life? This is a new way of thinking, that does NOT require a 4-year education leaving you in debt for decades. Unlike the traditional path to success, the new way to successfully go through school is very different. Learning how to use and leverage digital knowledge is critical to building our future life. A life where we have time freedom, financial freedom, and geographical freedom. A world where people support each other, share knowledge and take care of our natural world.
You see we can no longer look at the old school systems for knowledge because they are not rigged for the future yet. The universities of the world used to dictate where the best students got their degrees, but today there is a number of learning platforms teaching lifestyle business to a global public online.
These new educations focus on mindset, personal values, and goals as foundations to build a business where you live authentically. They show you how to make your dreams a reality. Digital entrepreneurs learn, understand, build and share with these new life skills. Developing the growth mindset they need to be the up and coming problem-solvers for the future.
Gone are the days of convincing sales, strict budgets and financial values. Because this decade will provide a paradigm shift in the way we sell our products and connect with our customers. In this new world where sharing and caring for each other is key to survival, we will attract people by being authentic. Selling is about sharing our values and giving away our best knowledge to help people. Not about budgets, cold calling and being stuck in an office from 9 to 5.
I used to think I was weird
“I used to think I was weird wanting to get out of the toxic corporate world – where feeding ego’s… making more money… and chaining people to rigid office hours is the norm. Being a part of enforcing strict company rules, whatever the consequence for the workers, their family’s and the environment, made me sick. I felt that I didn’t fit in. I was stressed and unfulfilled, not being able to be there for my family because the job demanded me there. I felt that I failed in both worlds…. I had to make a change! “– Mona Solberg
Have you ever felt this feeling? ..that this is just wrong.. like there must be more to life than trading our best years and our families away for money and bad values …to pay bills and then what… retire and die?
Searching for a solution to get out of 9 to 5
Today I know that it doesn’t have to be that way… I was desperate to find a solution to my problem. Searching online, listening to self-development gurus I tried several online opportunities that ended up being nothing… What were my options? what could I do? And then one day; I came across this guy that had decided to get out of the corporate rat race while there was still time …
The guy with the online business
He had created his own online business and NOW his website was selling products for him 24/7. I decided to contact him, and he said he wanted to help me. So, he sent me a workshop series where his mentor Stuart explains how every person with the right mindset can create their own online business…
I was skeptical, It looked good but at the same time, was it too good to be true?… Like most people, I found it hard to get my head around my options. I started thinking about my life again. It made me sick just thinking about that work-place and how it affected my entire life. How my relationships were ruined with both friends and family because I just wanted to be alone and climb a mountain to get out of my own head – to feel free – for a moment! I knew the traditional way was failing me but was this the right way?…
I decided to at least watch the videos.
This workshop series was the beginning of a very different life for me. Because in the videos I found a system with mentors, coaches, and likeminded people that walked the talk. Get access to the same videos here
…Hundreds of people that were in a similar situation as I was, was there… I was stunned. Suddenly I wasn’t so weird after all. I just hadn’t met the right tribe yet.
Learning how to get out of the 9 to 5
They gave me the tools to build an amazing life I love..one that is based on my values of family, travels and the great outdoors. It was a place where people are all about sharing knowledge, Helping each other .. and cheer each other on towards success.
Whenever I was frustrated or needed someone to talk to, I spoke to one of the coaches. If I needed to discuss a subject I talked to people in the tribe, or posted a question and got all the answers I needed and more. Or I joined one of the many webinars that are held every week where the experts look at your challenges and help you overcome them.
If I needed more knowledge or in-dept information about something I opened one of the 6000 extra courses available through the collaboration with Linked In learning. I could see the contour of a new life, where I could get out of the 9 to 5 time-trade.
After a couple of weeks, I had new friends, accountability partners, and people to discuss business with. I couldn’t wait to get home and turn on the PC to get to work. As soon as I learned something, I implemented it, and day by day, I built my business with this Learn, Do Teach method. For the first time in forever, I actually felt happy. Also, l learned new morning routines and implemented morning workouts, visualization, and meditation. Going to work got easier because of the morning routine. I knew I could leave that job soon. So I looked forward to a fabulous afternoon and night, learning and implementing parts of my new life every day. This is where you can sign up to get the free Workshop
