Self-Employed Or Employed For Someone Else – Find Yourself and Find Success

A lot of people out there are interested in being entrepreneurs these days.  Who doesn’t want to quit a dead-end job, working for a boss they can’t seem to get along with, earning more money for someone else in the process than they do for themselves?The question isn’t a matter of desire to do something different.  The question revolves around desire to re-write the future and re-think one’s approach to find the desired success.  Let’s take a brief look at the traits that are common to each world, and hopefully see what we need to do to find our niche in the world.People who work for someone else:  commonly enjoy the structure and routine of a work environment that forces them to work to please superiors.  They find pleasure in doing a job well enough to earn a raise … high marks on a review … or that deserved comment that tells them they’re doing a good job.People who work for themselves:  commonly prefer to set their own routine and schedule.  Job satisfaction cannot come from others, and therefore, the successfully self-employed find satisfaction in goal setting and achieving those goals.People who work for someone else:  are commonly satisfied with the status quo.  They favor a “steady course” scenario to the unknown.People who work for themselves:  are commonly more comfortable with risk.  They see a bigger picture of where they want to be down the road, and are therefore willing to make more sacrifices in the here and now to reach the ultimate mark.People who work for someone else:  commonly rely on the regular paycheck, paying all bills and meeting all deadlines around their schedule of payment and benefits.  There is no reason to get creative here, because the world revolves around set limits of income and disbursements.People who work for themselves:  prefer to come up with creative approaches to life’s common challenges.  They develop an “all-in” mentality, willing to become and remain pro-active and willing to make consistent effort.No one can fault either type of person.  Each approach has its benefits, and each is accompanied by its own unique set of challenges.  Which road you ultimately choose is really based on your own disposition and comfort-ability with risk.  But, if you are accustomed to the 9 to 5 lifestyle, be willing to address this one critical point before making the move … if you want to find success, it’s time to adopt the mindset of the successful and be willing to re-think one’s strategy permanently.All the best on your road to success!
