I Got Laid Off
How many of you have been laid off? Had a paycut? Had expenses that your current job can’t cover? Incurred school or medical debt that seems impossible to pay?
This past week I have had two friends that are about the same age as me who have been laid off from their jobs. In this life you really have no control when you work for somebody else. They can decide to downsize, cut back costs, or replace you with somebody newer or more talented that will work for less. It’s the truth. We are programmed to think that is the safe and sure way to take care of our familes.
I saw the bishop of my church and knew that he owned a few businesses and thought, man, that seems like the way to go. It took me 29 years to get to a point where I began to think of that or accept that as a great option as opposed to working for an hourly rate for the next 40 years being told what I’m worth by somebody other than myself.
As many of you know, we have had an abundant income by building a business through health and fitness with Team Beachbody which creates the freedom to work from anywhere and on our own hours. (I’m writing this from a plane above Colorado on the way to Cancun Mexico next to the love of my life, not in a cubicle) I’ve know many people including close family and friends that I KNOW struggle in life and I know without any doubt that this Beachbody “thing” ( as some still call it to me) is a better way. Not the only, but it’s better than spending free time playing video games, watching the depressing news, gossiping, reading pointless magazines about celebrities. It’s Something to do NOW to prepare yourselves for potential future hardships. Becoming healthier, stronger, mentally tougher, more confident, a better parent, spouse, son or daughter. Creating a retirement, saving for kids college, giving us the opportunity to afford to bring another Child of God into this world, providing an easier lifestyle for parents, providing time freedom…. For once I don’t lay in bed wondering how to pay bills, how to retire, how to pay off our debt. Not having that stress makes me more present for those I love most
You don’t have to be the best, or the top, or the 1st, You don’t have to do it full-time, money is NOT the root of all evil. Its time you think about taking care of yourself or preparing for whatever could happen and why not become a better person doing it.
One of the best ways to foster acceptance in your heart, mind, and future with your families finances is to remain open to new ideas. Great minds and souls never completely close themselves off to the possibility that they may be wrong, even when it concerns ideas, beliefs, opinions, and values they hold dearest. Being close minded will prevent you from ever fulfilling your God-given potential. Try to remain open to new ideas. If you do, I think you will find it much easier to accept people and experience a more fulfilling life.
