If you’re feeling fatigued or demotivated starting back at work this year, you’re not alone.
The pandemic has caused many people to rethink their careers or even consider leaving their jobs, leading to what the media is referring to as “the Great Resignation”.
But for many, just changing jobs won’t solve the problem.
There are media reports of people starting the year already feeling fatigued – thanks to excessive workloads in 2021 (with a lack of any corresponding pay rise), the blurring of work/home boundaries, plus the physical and emotional effects of COVID-19 – particularly with the latest Omicron wave.
Some people simply feel burned-out coming into 2022. For others, the economic uncertainties and job insecurities created by the pandemic have brought the need to have an alternative to working in a job for a living into sharp relief.
Simply put – if you’re reliant solely on your job for income, then you’re vulnerable to economic shocks and greater uncertainty/anxiety when events like the current pandemic or the GFC of 2007 occur.
A recent survey by research group Gartner revealed that the pandemic has caused 65 per cent of workers to rethink the place that work should have in their lives.
More than 50 per cent of employees reported they were now questioning the purpose of their day-to-day job, and over 60 percent were longing for a bigger change in their life.
If you love your job, then more power to you – I think it’s great to get paid for doing something you enjoy.
But if you’re one of the 60+ per cent looking for a change, the question is:
What’s the alternative to working in a job of the rest of your life?
Many of our students have been able to replace some or all of their job income through their property deals, escaping the ‘rat race’ for good.
Over the past 18+ months Results Mentoring members and their mentors have created millions of dollars in income from smart property deals.
Imagine how motivating that can be. Not to mention what it means for your ability to cope with the impact of the pandemic and sleep easier at night – with less worries about the security of your job.
A common theme in discussions with my students over the past 18 months has been how grateful they are that they had begun working on their own financial independence plan prior to the pandemic, and how it has protected them from the current economic uncertainties.
What actions will you take this year to create your own financial independence plan?
If you want to reduce or even eliminate your reliance on your job, and give yourself the choice whether to work or not, what steps will you take this year to make progress toward that goal?
Want a head start – for free?
You can get a great head start by attending our upcoming online ‘Financial Independence Workshop’ for Property Investors.
Participants will learn proven techniques for finding elusive positive cashflow properties, and see case studies demonstrating “active investing” real estate deals that deliver 5- and 6-figure cash profit outcomes in months rather than years – including real-world examples from the last 12 months!
To help you prepare for what’s going to happen in the property market over the year ahead – we will also be covering:
– How rising interest rates, inflation, tighter finance rules and economic disruption from the Omicron COVID-19 wave will impact the property market
– The very latest research and forecasts for the property market (our forecasts have repeatedly proven more accurate than the big banks and most economists, so don’t miss our latest predictions!)
– Why and where property values are likely to rise strongly (plus risky locations to avoid like the plague if you plan to protect your wealth!)
– Creating your own financial independence plan – essential for protecting yourself from economic shocks, and if you plan to retire early.
This three-hour interactive workshop will teach you about property investing strategies that can help you to make significant profits, potentially exceeding the income from your regular job and helping you gain financial independence.
All registered participants will also receive access to a replay recording of the event.
