Did you ever imagine that a fireman would be able to tell you more about making career changes? Probably not, and if your house were on fire you would hope that I help you put that fire out.
I would help put that fire out, and the objective is to do it quickly, but I will tell you that fighting fires does take a toll on a person’s body. In fact, I could safely tell you that most retired firefighters are suffering from cancer and other ailments that can change their lives for the worst.
With that being said, I love what I do, and I love helping people, but one day, I started thinking about how these men and women look when they retire. It’s not much of a life, and while they are firefighters, they work crazy hours.
There isn’t much freedom in the schedule. So, is it a labor of love? Yes and no. However, in the longrun, what do I want from life? I know that I want better health, but I also know that I would love to be able to spend my time how I wish.
That is why I want to share with you why this fireman, is in the process of changing the game of his life, for good.
Why Being aa Fireman Won’t Help Me Retire
If you are wondering why I am moving away from a career as afireman, then keep reading.
I love what I do, as I said above, but in the years to come, I know that what I do for a living will have an adverse affect on my health and my entire life overall. Most retired firefighters end up with cancer, respiratory problems and other health issues because of the job we do.
However, I also know that the schedule doesn’t afford me much of a life. It’s hard to meet people, and plan much of anything unless I know several days in advance. Yes, I like to get out once in awhile.
However, the big thing for me is financial readiness, and I love to travel. While pension for firefighters isn’t all that bad, it could be better. Think about the fact that if you know what you will earn inpension, then that controls the life you live.
I would rather live a life in which my finances don’t dictate what I do, but where I get to CHOOSEwhat I do and when. Wouldn’t you rather live this way too? Wouldn’t you rather NOT have to worry about what you have, and be able to spend more money on your children and grandchildren?
What about taking them on vacation with you? This is the life I want, and although I’m young, NOWis the time! Everyone else waits until they do retire, and then they want to make changes.
I want to live NOW, and start preparing NOW, so that when the time comes, I can say I retired well before the standard retirement age. Doesn’t that sound better?
Becoming a Wealthy Fireman
Now that you can see WHY I wanted to make a change, what about you? What do you do? What changes would you like to make? Would you like to work hard now so that you don’t have to later?
Wouldn’t you love to decide when you travel, and what if you could work just from your laptop anywhere in the world? Would you rather be a fireman that can retire early, in good health, and with more money?
It’s time to re-evaluate your career, no matter what is you do. Make your checklist of the following:
- What is your dream?
- What is it you want to do most?
- Will your career today get you there later?
- Do you have goals?
- If you do, can you reach them with your career?
Once you answer these questions,just like a “fireman”, your chances are better getting out of the cloud of smoke where there is a lot of uncertainty. Why not take the necessary steps to get there, today?
If you are a fireman just like me, or you do something else, but you want to create a new life with more time freedom and stronger finances, then go HERE now to learn more about what I am doing to get there!
