Follow Your Dream Out of the Rat Race – Without Being Eaten Alive

by Stephen Mills on February 8, 2009

Eagle Catching Prey

Unless you want to be caught in the claws and jaws of the rat race predators, you need to pay careful attention to what follows.  When you look up toward the sky, you will see a large kettle (group) of vultures circling overhead and the hawks and wolves lurk near you in the trees and bushes.  They are waiting for you to take a step outside where they can gobble you up.

When you decide to follow your dream and escape the rat race, you are vulnerable.  You are going to see so many get-rich-quick schemes and scams flying in your direction you won’t know which direction is up.  These will be presented in very convincing presentations, using tried and true marketing techniques, wrapped inside the most powerful testimonials from the allegedly new rich.  There is no way you can lose right?  All the money you ever wanted is just around the corner and all you have to do is reach out and grab it.

It simply doesn’t work that way.  Yes you can achieve your dreams.  Yes you can be happy and successful.  Yes you can earn more than you ever have before.  No it is not easy.  No it is not quick.  And no it does not come without a price.  If you want something and are not willing to pay the price to get it, you are going to end up very disappointed.  I am not going to link you to dozens of sites promising rivers of money will soon flow your way.  You need to learn the principles that will sustain you over the long-term.  I want you to be part of this community for the long term and so I am going to earn your trust.

There are two strategies you can follow right now to achieve your escape.
The first is to make major changes in your current life situation and the second is to change careers and do something entirely different with your life.  You must apply the first strategy regardless and the second one around career change will also be used by many people.  However you do not have to use the second strategy.  Many people won’t and will still benefit enormously.  The whole point of this article is to convince you to make this decision carefully and deliberately.

The first strategy detailed below is very important as it will sustain you during your escape and for the rest of your life no matter what you decide in regards to career change.  Please don’t rush into that decision or you will find yourself in a heap of trouble.  I will post some information in the next few days on some resources you can begin looking into if you feel a change is necessary right now.  I suggest that you get your life in order first and then you will have the necessary foundation to make a very successful career change later.

Make life changes now, no matter what your current situation.

There are very few people who won’t benefit tremendously from some major changes in the way they approach their personal and professional lives.  Make these changes now and continue to grow positively, and you almost certainly will find happiness and success in your current job or business.  You will benefit from these changes for the rest of your life.

I will continue to provide a lot of content in this blog to help you achieve these changes.  They are remarkably straightforward if you know what to do.  Here are some resources to help you get started.

Much, much, more to come.  Please let me know what you think.

Stephen.

Hi Stephen,

Really enjoyed reading your article – was googling for ‘finding meaning from work’ and landed here. Actually, I am not able to connect to the profession I chose and not able to decide on quitting my job (probably the high pay is stopping me). Any piece of advice may help! thanks.

The Squeezbox Boom radio from Logitech is not just an Internet radio.
“Mike” is Mike Dean, according to the scanty information available, and beyond that there’s not much about him. Kevin Smith is a stand up comedian known for directing feature film comedies like Clerks, Dogma and Jersey Girl.

But, internet radio offers a whole lot more than just
your favorite music online. In my case I listen
to all music that is submitted to me before I include it on my playlist.
Closed at heels, all the interruptions of RJs too can be kept aside, thanks to odysseystreaming.

I have interviewed a few parents to attempt to understand what their true objection is with their child playing video games.
It is an adventurous game filled with fun and excitement.
The nature of Reddit’s platform makes it possible — through great and creative effort, it appears — to give users a gift of the unexpected, rather than deriving humor from humiliation.

If, at the end of this time period, the score is tied, there are
two options the officials can take. Understanding video gaming is a
must tip on how to run a game store. Moreover,
there you could also play Scrabble in the internet,
TV game shows or game consoles.

The internet is fueling the success of music because it can be listened to at
any time of the day and anywhere in the world. Regular workshops ensure that the staff at PVM Radio subdivision
is not only up to date with the latest technological
innovations, but also ensures that the customers from diverse backgrounds are offered the best possible services to suit
their tastes. But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because,
being speech orientated, they’re more like what I do, so I can learn lots from them.

Would you like to save money by not hiring a wedding planner, but you feel overwhelmed by the thought of trying to organize,
track and complete all the details and tasks by yourself.

On the backside of the coin displays all 12 Chinese zodiac symbols.
Next thing to do is to pour the space cake batter into the pan & put
it in the oven for about 25 minutes.

If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of the scale even though you
are eating properly, pick three days of the week on which you will always weigh yourself
(for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done
but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved.

It does appear, however, that hypnosis can help a person achieve his or
her weight loss goals. In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to keep to a max of
4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. The institution has persistently offered ideal programs and services for those struggling to achieve certain levels of body weight.

I cannot quite remember how much I paid but I think it
was about £6. After you get here, just follow all of the instructions and within a
few minutes everything should be back up to date.
Now, you can organize the gaming sessions at your place and have fun beating your
friends with high scores in your favorite Nintendo game.

opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping

Apart from that, excellent blog!
