“What do you want to be when you grow up?” This was a question that we got asked continuously as kids. Whatever answer we gave was encouraged and little energy was wasted on trying to change the indidividuals mind.

Once we hit a certain age however, people begin to push their opinions on us. There’s a lot of pressure in our world to find security at an early age, but this strategy acts more like a pair of handcuffs than a harness.

 

Being Young

The urgency to find a job, get your foot on the property ladder and make some money is a short term strategy. Being young means being free, having energy, creativity, imagination, opportunities, spare time, money, etc.

As you get older most of these things are taken away and security does become something with a greater need. This is why it’s so important for us to use our earliest years as a roll of the dice.

 

What People Forget About Day Jobs & Security

Getting a job is easy. Having a secure day job that pays a salary each month isn’t hard to obtain, yet so many people see it as the biggest prize in life.

Starting a company, chasing your true dream or making something of yourself is a lot harder and requires time. With this in mind, your first 30 years of life are a free hit.

You should give everything to making your dreams come true when you’re young and free of responsibilities, because it gets harder to do this in the future.

Too many people have this back to front. They go into the corporate world, work their way up and decide that they’ll chase their dreams in the future. However that final aim never comes to fruition because they have too many responsibilities and they’re too reliant on their day job for survivial.

People always forget how easy it is to get a job. You could work on a business from the age of 18 to the age of 30, not succeed and still go and get a job off the back of that with little fuss.

Suddenly you’re secure and earning pretty much what everyone else around you is earning. It’s not a hard thing to achieve.

However, try working in a corporate job for 12 years, then chasing your dreams off the back of that. You’re looking at finding success by the age of 40-50 with this strategy on average. You’ll probabaly also face financial issues at a time in your life when you have a wife, kids, a home, etc.

 

Free Hit

There’s something magical about being young and having the ability to take a swing at life without consequences. Yet so many young people rush into day jobs and end up regreting it for the rest of their lives with no way out.

The whole point of being young is learning, trying things out and finding what you like.

We all need to realize that putting half of your energy and focus into something doesn’t work. Putting something to the side to finish later also doesn’t work.

If you’re under 30 right now and you have a dream, use this once in a lifetime opportunity and give it 100% of what you have.

You have to remember that grabbing your dream becomes harder over time. But day jobs will always be there. You could fail relentlessly as an entrepreneur, actor, or even presenter for 30 years, get to 50 and still get a job anywhere in the world doing a whole range of things.

Never forget that the safety net of day jobs are there to catch people and give them a way to survive. They’re not there to help you thrive. In order to do that you’ll need to take a chance and push for something that only you can see while you’re young.

Yes you’ll receive criticism and doubt, but at any moment if it gets too much, or you want out, you can do the easy thing and join everyone else who picks up a salary at the end of each month. It’s not a hard transition and it’s always going to be there just in case you fall off, so you may as well take a gamble as early as possible.
