You could lose your job at any time.
Life is unpredictable after all.
For example, last night the doorbell rang at around 6:00 pm.
I got up and went to answer it and surprisingly, there was my 7-year-old daughter covered from head to toe in mud.
I did not see that one coming.
“What happened to you?”
“I was trying to play by the swingset and the dogs ran by me and made me fall in the mud! They were being good then they just ran me over!”
Dogs are unpredictable.
There one minute, running off the next!
Anna’s random dog encounter reminded me of a kid I took home after football practice once.
Let’s just say he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer.
He asked for a ride and I said, “Sure son, where do you live?”
He confidently replied, “Go down the highway, coach, and then turn right at them dogs.”
“Turn right at them dogs?”
“Yep, them dogs are always at the corner where I live! When I see them dogs, I turn right, and I get home!”
The kid didn’t know where he lived.
Just a stray pack of dogs to point his way home.
Sure enough, we drove down the highway and right where he said they’d be, there were half a dozen stray dogs.
Before he got out I asked him…
“Son, what if them dogs get hit by cars, or the dog catcher picks them up, or they grow old and die, or they just…leave. How would you get home?”
He smiled and said, “Oh, don’t worry coach, them dogs have always been there, and they always will.”
Then he walked confidently inside.
We laugh at this kids faith in “them dogs,” but SO MANY of us do the SAME THING when it comes to making a living.
We rely on our jobs, on our employers, to take care of all our needs.
A single source of income.
Giving us a single paycheck, every couple weeks or so.
We live our life in blind faith as if there is nothing that could go wrong, and it will always be there for us.
Then someone buys our company and we get laid off (just happened to a friend of ours).
Then the government shuts down our employer because they didn’t pay their taxes.
And we are left high and dry.
I randomly lost my job once because the county I worked for consolidated two high schools.
When you go from two football teams to one, you only need one head coach.
They picked the other guy.
My job was gone.
Just like that kid relied on “them dogs,” you count on your job as if they will always be there.
When you work for others, you are putting your faith in people and companies that could get up and walk away from you.
Just like them dogs.
So what am I saying is…
That kid shouldn’t have relied on them dogs for direction.
And you shouldn’t rely on your employer for income
You can find your own way!
You can earn a living on your own, working for yourself!
When you work for yourself in an online business you become self-sufficient!
You don’t rely on a single source of income, because you make a living from hundreds of different people from around the world!
You don’t put ALL THE POWER in someone else’s hands, YOU ARE IN CONTROL of your destiny!
You get to live life on your terms.
So stop trusting them dogs, they eventually just get you dirty like they did Anna Jo.
Don’t rely on them dogs for directions like that football player, they eventually go away and then you’re lost.
And quit relying on a single employer for your family’s future.
There is a better way home.
We’d love to help you find freedom and security working for yourself.
