Most of us grew up in modest conditions,
We work very hard for the things we have,
Money guides lifestyle and leisure decisions,
Health and happiness nowadays, often rank last.
It’s smart to sit down and prioritise these,
Trivial things may be causing you undue stress?
Online courses can help even more than Degrees,
To secure jobs that pay well, so you can work less.

Many of us were not born with a silver spoon in our mouths, we began life with few resources, and quickly had to find a way to acquire more, in order to secure our’s and our family’s survival. Often this meant taking an entry level position, paying minimum wage, thus work dominated our lives.
Just because we find ourselves in a routine of working practically every waking hour, trying to make ends meet, does not mean we should do this for the rest of our lives. We should think about what our ideal job role would be, come up with several rewarding options, then work towards achieving them.
The aim is to develop the necessary skills to be able to work in our dream job, one which barely feels like work, because we enjoy it so much, and that also pays us more than we are used to. This extra money shouldn’t be wasted on expensive things though, but saved, so that we have a security blanket, easing our financial burdens.
This reduction in stress and increase in free time is worth so much more than any trivial luxuries, plus it may also create an opportunity for you to own your own home, or work for yourself some day! Don’t wait around for miracles to happen, create the magic you yearn for, and a work-life balance that soothes your soul.
Love and Respect always,
