So im a construction electricianWhat do you hate about it?
What was your reason for starting in the first place? What changed?
What is your current situation/lifestyle?
What is your dream situation/lifestyle?
Hopefully then we can dig deeper and then help create a roadmap from where you are to where you're trying to go.
No that seems like a boring and repetitive life.. i want freedom, being able to not worry about how im going to pay my bills..being able to travel with more than the lousy 2 weeks im offered off from my job..Do you have a larger vision for what you want out of life or are you cool with just paying bills until you die? Not a trick question just wondering.
it sounds like you want to work less, not more. Correct?No that seems like a boring and repetitive life.. i want freedom, being able to not worry about how im going to pay my bills..being able to travel with more than the lousy 2 weeks im offered off from my job..
Defintely dont want the life my parents have which is work, go home sleep and wait for the weekend to do nothing
Second option. Beach is boring after three days. Man needs something to work on.it sounds like you want to work less, not more. Correct?
Which sounds better to you?
You live on a beach in a foreign country and have other young, cool friends and a girlfriend you hangout with and have fun with all day. You run a small digital business and make 5-8k a month and get to travel around a lot.
You work days and nights for years and sacrifice your sanity, mind and health to build a large business where you are stuck in one spot for a while, and you have to eliminate all of your hobbies for a few years while you build. But after a number of years you are worth 86 million and you get to do things other people can't even dream of. You have built something substantial and you will leave a lasting legacy.
What makes you think that you will be happy doing something else when you don't seem to be sure about what it could be?Not happy at my job as an Electrician and dont know where to go from here
That's a dream life, in today's world and for many years to come. Compare it with struggling under a ton of debt, having a wife and kids for whom you can't buy anything except a little food, and no home to live in - the current state of millions in the world, but then they do not have the time or anyone to complain to.my current situation is debt free, single with no kids living at home cant really afford rent with the pay im getting at the moment
Been thinking about doing something along the line of being a real estate agent , no longer want to be in physical labor and traveling into the city with crazy traffic
How about no proper home, no time to sleep and spending the weekend doing temp jobs at the only place you could find to supplement your weekday income? I know people who do this happily and do not complain, but are proud that they were at least able to provide for their family. Probably the same thoughts your parents may have had when they were "waiting for the weekend to do nothing", while putting their hopes on you.Defintely dont want the life my parents have which is work, go home sleep and wait for the weekend to do nothing
