Changing someone’s mindset is always difficult, and it becomes even more difficult when that mindset has been passed down for generations and ingrained from a young age. This is the case when it comes to the old school line of thinking that the best way to be successful in life is to go to school and then get a job and work for someone else for the rest of your life.
Robert Kiyosaki covers this poignantly in his best-selling book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”. In it, he discussed how his “poor dad” (his real father) taught him about how he should focus on getting and keeping a job while his “rich dad” (his friend’s father) taught him the value of entrepreneurship and making money on his own. Kiyosaki’s “poor dad” worked tirelessly most of his adult life only to lose his job and livelihood. His “rich dad” enjoyed financial freedom thanks to starting his own business.
How many “poor dad” types do you know? Because this 9-to-5 work week is so ingrained in society these days, many people just assume that they have to conform to it as well. But that is an old school way of thinking; nowadays, thanks to the internet and social media, it is easier and more affordable than ever to start your own business!
Many people have considered the possibility, but never looked into it seriously out of fear of failure or hesitancy to break from the “old school” mold. And many home-based businesses can start as a side-job or supplementary income so you don’t have to deal with the culture-shock of leaving your old way of life all at once.
The “new school” mentality appreciates that the days of job security in big businesses are fading, and the only boss that you know that you can trust 100% is yourself! Don’t let the “old school” stigma hold you back from the life that you desire and deserve!
