How to Get Rich - Fire Your Boss

Would you like to fire your boss ?

Would you like to have the freedom to tell your boss to take a hike ?

I think we have all felt this way at some point in out careers !

Reality of  Work

Let's face it, most people don't go to work because they love what they are doing. They go to work in order to pay their bills and provide for some fun in their lives. Period !

Oh yes, there are a few who really love their jobs to the point where it has become a part of their personal identity. I think that is great for them but personally I don't think they will ever become truly rich ! That is simply because they don't have control over their own time.

Time is Most Valuable

Yes, time is our most valuable commodity. None of us know how much we have left. Our life as we know it could be over at any time. I think we can all relate to that !

It is therefore very important that we spend what ever time we have left doing something that we enjoy. It is a shame that so many people dread going to work each day. What a sad life, really !

This is not to say that we do not have to work. Most of us do. It means instead that we should be developing our lives towards doing something we don't hate to do to pay our bills and have some fun. Simple in theory but much harder in practice.

How to Have Control of Your Time

To be truly free and rich you must have control of your own time. In order to do this you must find a way for your bills to be paid without working for the money. The most common legal and ethically sound way is to develop investments to pay your bills. 

In order to do this you must learn all you can about saving, debt reduction and investing . Do not fall prey to the many so called investment professionals that always take care of their own bills first. Learn to do it yourself. Stay in control of your savings and investments at all times. Control your money and you will soon be able to start controlling your own time.

Start working towards taking control today and some day you will be able to fire your boss and tell him/her to take a hike. But don't do that until you are ready and the time is right. 

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.

At the other end of the spectrum are people who have no desire to earn an income of their own but are content to sit and collect government handouts. Both are totally out of balance. Between the two extremes exists a perfect balance.
