Work sucks, especially when you don't enjoy it. A successful guy by the name of Steve Pavlina puts it this way: I'm gonna vent a little now. See, everyone I know expects me to do exactly as they do, like there's no chance of variation or individuality. To them, everybody is the same. Everybody has to work, work, work. It's the "adult life." You don't have any other options. The problem is my entire life has been geared toward self-employment. I have never been "just like everybody else," and there's no possible way I can achieve such a deadbeat goal now. I'm 22 years old, and it's time I capitalize on being different. A relative of mine used the terms pipe-dream and cop-out to describe my aspirations of doing only what I want to do. Well, since then, I've had an increased desire to keep pursuing the dream. It turns out wanting to prove everyone wrong has some weight to it. So in a way I'm grateful for the constant nay-saying and discouragement disguised as advice. It gives me some ammo for later. Is anyone else in a similar predicament? Or, if you're pro-job, feel free to tell us all why. It might be a funny read.
