Not everyone is meant to be an entrepreneur, some of us are already doing what we are meant to be doing, but the stress of others being unhappy and the idea of the rat cage, leaves people feeling confused. People may feel like, should I hate my job, should I too consider leaving my 9-5?
Why is the idea of having a 9-5 so bad?
I often have clients who feel unhappy and assume it’s because of their job. In fact most of the time it’s about the belief systems they have about work or, they are misplacing their emotions and assuming it’s their job that is affecting them. The truth is, there is so much more to consider.
Not everyone is mean’t to walk away from the jobs they have, not everyone’s meant to work for themselves and frankly some people who do leave their jobs and try and start something on their own may be forcing the process and creating more stress than needed! Where you are right now is so important. It’s important because it’s teaching you about how you feel, how and what is making you unhappy on such a deeper level.
When we are unhappy we are always looking to blame someone or something but we really need to look deep within ourselves. Being an entrepreneur isn’t always what it’s cracked out to be, yes you’re the boss but the amount of time and work and the payout expected is very different, than the stability of the 9-5. You really need to feel the security within yourself, and maybe the job you’re in is creating that already.
Another thing to consider, is your hobbies aren’t your purpose or even in alignment to jumping and creating a new business. Hobbies are in alignment to feelings. Hobbies exist because it reminds us of a feeling of joy or a person you yearned to emotionally bond with. Purpose comes from a sense of self.
Now, if you’re someone who disagrees with the above, I want you to ask yourself these following questions. These are the questions the true entrepreneurs face daily.
- Can you face your fear of failure?
- Can you walk away from people and situations to truly honour what you want to create?
- What’s your belief about finances?
- Do you understand balance?
- Are you someone who can handle judgement?
- What is your gift and not something you mimic from someone else?
- What makes you different from the rest?
- Are you willing to do the work you preach about or the business you would like to create?
- Do you understand that everything is a reflection of who you are, so you will attract that?
- Does your heart open at the thought of doing , or taking the risk of being an entrepreneur?
So, if you’re feeling trapped and you’re looking for a way out, don’t run away from the exterior or change your whole life just yet. You may be exactly where you need to be. Yes, of course we want more joy and better experiences but who says you’re not already in the best experience right now. Maybe some of us just need to count our blessings.
