Working is something we all must do. Some people work in careers that they absolutely hate; others are stationed in the perfect possible place. Those that work in jobs that they truly dislike are to be respected – all work is noble work, and sometimes you have to do the dirty work in order to get through the weeks and months. It is possible for those individuals to get out of that position and work in a place that they’ll love, however. It sounds impossible because we’re kind of placed into a particular part of society, but the mould can be broken. 

This sounds incredibly harsh, but if you spend multiple decades stuck in the same job that you hate, then that’s on you. Sometimes you have to stay put in places, but not for a horrendous amount of time. If you want a particular job in a certain field, then you can make it happen. Many of us have been told and condition into believing that we should stay in our lane. Don’t do that – you’re better than that. Even if it sounds like quite a challenge, you should attack where you are now and try to improve your professional life. Still sound a little far fetched? Well, here are some reasons as to why you, yes you, can get the career you want:  

You Don’t Have To Be Special  

Those that are in positions that they want to be in, and those making lots of money at the top are seen as better individuals in almost every aspect. It’s like they were born different from the majority. Nope. They’re exactly the same as you – they just went out and did something. They took risks, and they were rewarded. You can do just that. Nobody is special in this world – we’re all the same. 

There Are So Many Opportunities Now

Because of modern technology and the increased population, there are so many different avenues that a person could go down. Literally, all you have to do is search on Google, and you’ll be inundated with thousands of different jobs. Whether you’re searching for trucking companies hiring teams, or a recruitment agency that hunts for administrators, the results will be in front of you in a matter of seconds. 

Now, it’s not as easy to then successfully get these jobs, but the first step is right there in front of you. Social media also allows you to network and get in touch with all the right people.   

Education Is Available Everywhere

Heading back to school as a mature student has always been an option for people. Now, however, there are online courses regarding just about anything. If you want to grab an education from the comfort of your own home, then that’s entirely possible. There are also free lessons and video tutorials scattered around the web for you to take part in. 

The Biggest Barrier Is You

Most of us are trapped inside our own minds. When the idea of getting into something we want comes along, fear keeps us shackled. Now, for some reason, we’re scared of so many things that won’t even come to fruition. If you want something in life, all you have to do is go and get it. What’s the worst that can happen? Learn to batter those fears and live the life you want – there’s really no problem in front of you.

Your Office, Anywhere

You’ve decided to take the plunge. You’ve left your corporate structured, nine-to-five job with its regular income and its stability. There was scope for progression there, but somehow it might feel that ploughing your heart and soul into somebody else dreams is not for you. For you, the joy of business is planting the seed yourself; then watching your dreams grow large as you nurture them.

So, you’ve got your idea. You’ve even managed to pull some savings together to get you off the ground. You have reordered your lifestyle to accommodate the personal risk you’re taking and you’re off. You are in business! Now comes the real challenge, the hard work and, if you play it right, the freedom to live as you want while your business flourishes.

The type of business you are operating will largely dictate the type of physical space you need to operate in. Obviously, if you need a space where your customers need to come to you, like a restaurant or store, then real estate is pivotal in your planning. But for so many types of businesses these days, such as web design, copywriting, and so many service-based industries, it is less about the physical office. With the growth of cloud computing, a lot of your work can be done from anywhere in the world. It might sound cliche to say that you want your office to be a sun bed on the beach of some idyllic Greek island, but with a laptop, internet connection and good online business support, you can connect with your customers or provide your services remotely.

This kind of freedom does sound amazing though. There’s no boardroom, no need for a tie. If you want to set a business with partners in other cities, or even on the other side of the world; there are so many online collaboration tools out there. You could have face to face conferencing, brainstorming sessions, have PowerPoint presentations, set agendas and deadline reminders for your team.

You might be supplying a product which you never need to handle, manage warehouse facilities for or ship yourself. By outsourcing fulfillment, you are free to be where life suits you. There’s no need to pay rent on a building that frankly depresses you. There’s no worry about hiring or firing teams to handle your stock. It almost feels like virtual reality.

The returns in terms of quality of life from making this kind of switch can be immense. You would have the flexibility to live your life how you need to; if you have a young child, you can be around as they grow up instead of stuck in a building away from them for most of your waking life. But, there are some things to consider. With the conventional nine-to-five, it’s much easier to leave your work at home. It is very important to set yourself rules, work during set times, and be sure and always find the time to enjoy life as much as possible.
