The average person starting work today, is going to have around 14 different jobs and 4 to 5 different careers in their lifetime.
There are several factors for changing jobs, such as:
– realizing your full potential in another position
– bigger salary and benefits
– achieving mastery of your daily tasks and realizing that you are finding your career at a dead end in your current workplace
– constant disagreements with bosses or colleagues
But despite all of these factors, the motivation for performing your usual daily tasks, should not be forgotten. If you get easily bored with your jobs, it might not only be a question of changing jobs, but changing levels of control over your career choices as well.
According to Robert Kiyosaki’s book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” , there are 4 categories of people, or 4 quadrants, that describe the stages of being successful.
All employees work for salary. They take their money home, they spend it on their lifestyle and very seldom they get ahead.
According to the book ‘s quote: “You never get rich working for someone else, you only get rich working for yourself.”
However, employee status is very good for starters, after all, we all need to begin somewhere.
2. Self-employed people
These people earn their livings from commission, income,bonuses, fees. People who are contractors, computer programmers, doctors, lawyers, architects and engineers, who work on their own, are basically self-employed. In other words “they can only eat, what they kill”.
These people have people who are working for them. A serious entrepreneur can allow himself to hire other people to do certain things for him, in order to free up his time to do things that are more valuable. The key to entrepreneurship according to the book is “The whole purpose of hiring other people is so, you can do more of those things that pay you the most.“
Wealth is income from other sources. You are only wealthy when you make a good living without working. So wealth means that you have money that are working for you, when you are not working.
In conclusion, our advise to you is: analyze your achievements and aspirations for the future on daily levels. Write down your goals and think do you got what it takes to reach “the next level”. If you are bored or unchallenged with your job, then it definitely is. A goal that is in writing has ten time more power, that a goal that’s in your head. So think it trough and write it down as a reminder. Maybe the next Mark Zuckerberg hides in you.
