Why You Don’t Have To Quit Your Job To Change The World

Theres a common perception in the internet world that in order to be truly
happy you have to quit your job and that if youre not working on your own
terms you arent living up to your own potential

A few years ago I drank that kool aid regularly

But as Ive grown older Ive developed a greater appreciation for not only
entrepreneurs but for those who hold jobs as well

Im not sure when all jobs became soul sucking endeavors but obviously not
everyone hates their job

To be perfectly honest Im tired of the quit your job bandwagon Its thrown too
many people under a blanket that doesnt necessarily fit Jobs arent bad

Yes some people hate their jobs with every fiber of their being but on the
other side there are millions of people who genuinely enjoy what they do

Sure if youre unhappy with your job by all means do what you have to do to
find your inner peace But if youre enjoying your job and sincerely believe you
are making a difference dont feel like you have to quit just because everyone
else is doing it

The truth of the matter is entrepreneurship is hard Its not easy and its
certainly not for everyone Can we stop pretending there is only one way

It doesnt matter whether you consider yourself an entrepreneur or you have to
report to your boss everyday

What matters is that you live in a career environment that brings out the best
in you one that leaves you knowing that youre making a difference

If you enjoy the every day turbulence of the entrepreneurship then by all means
be an entrepreneur

If youd rather give your services and talents to a company that you believe in
by all means bust your ass at that job

Or perhaps your current situation is a hybrid of entrepreneurship and the
corporate world

It doesnt matter

You dont have to quit your job to change the world

The only requirement to changing the world is waking up passionate about what
you do

If you can do that everybody wins

Why You Don’t Have To Quit Your Job To Change The World

There’s a common perception in the internet world that in order to be truly happy you have to quit your job, and that if you’re not working on your own terms you aren’t living up to your own potential.

A few years ago, I drank that kool aid regularly. But as I’ve grown older, I’ve developed a greater appreciation for not only entrepreneurs but for those who hold jobs as well.

I’m not sure when all jobs became soul sucking endeavors, but obviously not everyone hates their job.

To be perfectly honest I’m tired of the quit your job bandwagon. It’s thrown too many people under a blanket that doesn’t necessarily  fit. Jobs aren’t bad.

Yes, some people hate their jobs with every fiber of their being, but on the other side, there are millions of people who genuinely enjoy what they do.

Sure, if you’re unhappy with your job by all means do what you have to do to find your inner peace. But if you’re enjoying your job and sincerely believe you are making a difference, don’t feel like you have to quit just because everyone else is doing it.

The truth of the matter is, entrepreneurship is hard. It’s not easy, and it’s certainly not for everyone. Can we stop pretending there is only one way?

It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself an entrepreneur or you have to report to your boss everyday. What matters is that you live in a career environment that brings out the best in you, one that leaves you knowing that you’re making a difference.

If you enjoy the every day turbulence of the entrepreneurship than by all means be an entrepreneur.

If you’d rather give your services and talents to a company that you believe in by all means bust your ass at that job.

Or perhaps your current situation is a hybrid of entrepreneurship and the corporate world.

It doesn’t matter.

You don’t have to quit your job to change the world.

The only requirement to changing the world is waking up passionate about what you do.

If you can do that, everybody wins.
