When you hear the phrase modern slavery, what do you think of? Do you think of your boss? Do you think of the down economy that you see on the news everyday? Are you thinking about how most Americans are living captive to debt, including credit cards and recreational loans?
Just when you thought slavery only meant one thing, it means many. Don’t mistake me; I am not making light of slavery or anyone that was impacted at any time. I disagree with the history of slaves, black or white. What I am talking about is working under someone else that tells you what to do, how to do it, and they tell you how much time you are going to spend away from your family.
At a time when jobs are tough to come by, you may even feel as though your employer takes advantage of the fact that they know you need a job so you’ll do anything you can to keep it. You may be this way, and you may work in this fashion, offering up all of your free time to get more hours or more overtime. Whatever the case may be, you don’t have to be “enslaved” by anyone or anything forever unless you so choose.
The great news is that you can break free from the bondage of what most consider normal, and you can enjoy life to the fullest, the way you want on your terms. There is a way out, and I am going to share with you how you can start changing the course of your life by simply changing the way you think about work, and the way you think about money. I am going to tell you how you can break FREE from modern slavery now, and for good!
Modern Slavery is Mostly About Debt
Generally speaking, I find that when people say that they “feel like a slave”, they are really talking about the fact that they have to work more hours to make more money to pay off more debt. It almost always goes back to credit cards, or cars that they couldn’t afford but wanted. I am not saying that this is true of everyone, but most folks don’t get it.
Let me say this another way; you are unhappy about going to work but that is because you are working out of fear or the obligation of paying more debts than you can afford and it makes you angry. So then you get pissed, and you curse at the sun, and your kids. Before you know it, you go buy something else to make you feel better because you haven’t spent any money on yourself, and you are still getting angrier by the day.
So, are you really a victim of modern slavery? Yes. Modern day slavery has a different meaning because it’s about what is happening now, and why people feel as though they are tied down and can’t get air. It’s the debt that makes you feel the need to work more, and now because employers demand more and pay the same or less, the pressure is too great.
If jobs are not plentiful as they used to be, and things are so hard, then you might as well work for you. Yep. Let me say it again. Working from home is more fulfilling and at least you can say when you do it, and how you do it. You might as well do something you love for 80 hours a week than do it for someone else. Right? I know that’s how I think.
End Modern Slavery With Me!
If you have never heard the phrase, “Choose Yourself”, just Google it and see what comes back. I think that most people make themselves slaves because they think they don’t have any options, and they can’t make choices for themselves. You can. It’s up to you though.
You can’t blame someone if you can’t afford this or that. I know it’s hard, but the world doesn’t care about you. You care about you. Since we know that is true, and you control your thoughts, then you have to set goals and expectations for yourself. Need help with that?
