I just realized something, I’m 35 and I don’t have a pension fund.
This was a result of me jumping from one company to another.
Yes, it’s my fault.
Leaving permanent, 4 year government job I had in favor of fulltime stock trading, was a very risky move.
That stunt came back to bite me in the ass, when that venture failed.
Mainly because I did not initially find someone who was already succeeding in what I wanted to do.
And modelling their success habits that will allow me to be as successful.
Mentorship, would have this most very lucrative for me.
I had to go to corporate world with zero pension fund, bouncing from one pension fund-less job to another.
This was due to the kind of temporary jobs I’ve been getting.
Temps jobs don’t come pension benefits.
Now because I’ve been relying on a company to determine my future financial security, I’m left caught with my dick in my hand.
I’ve been relying on other people to provide a level of security that they themselves aren’t aware of.
There’s no power there.
That part of my life has been titled as one of my greatest failure.
But I’ve now found that it’s one of my greatest successes.
Because of the lessons it has taught me.
More of a warning.
That you are leaving yourself too exposed if you success depends on someone else’s decision.
Your chances of success will tilt in your favour when you take 100% ownership of your level of success in your life.
Saying that anyone or any institution is the reason behind why you’re not getting ahead in life, is a bullshit story you keep telling yourself.
So much so that you believe it.
And because of your belief, this has become your reality.
Just because things are dire for now, does not mean I’m f***ed for life.
Especially when books by Anthony Robbins paint a different picture of my possible future.
