what no one is telling you about your job

Jobs are important because they serve as an avenue for humans to invest their physical and mental energies into. Job in this context refers to an employment with a salary.

Our school system has trained us for different kinds of jobs. The problem is, while we have been told of the grandeur of having a job, we have been fed with only one side of the truth. The problem with half-truths is that they keep you busy but rarely produce the desired results. So many workers who are now employed have come to the realization that it is a different ball game entirely.
Here are five things no one is telling you about your job.

1. Your job cannot make you rich:

We all at some time have been told that if we go to school and get good grades, we would get a good paying job and we will be rich. Rich enough to buy luxury cars and big houses. That is mere fairy tale. Your job cannot make you rich. Observe the use of the word "cannot". Why? Because the system was not created to make any employee rich. It was created to help the employer become rich. This is why the job system gives you basically what you need to survive and meet your needs and not what you need to enjoy life to the full. Some people have recognized this and this is what has led to corruption of all sorts. If the job system starts paying a man huge sum of money, watch it. Soon, he would be dropped with the excuse of "we need to cut cost". It's not fair, right?

2. Your job can blind you to life realities:

It is an irony that people with jobs claim to see but most times, they are the ones in need of sight. Their job has blinded them that they cannot see far. They have a chronic case of myopia. This what a job can cause. It can get you engrossed in your work till you become consumed by its demand that you lose sight of the big picture. Imagine the average worker who wakes up every morning and rushes into traffic to make it to work. While at work, he is inundated with various demands that keeps him thinking and running from pillar to post. When work closes for the day, he goes home drained and tries to rest. By morning, he's back to the normal routine. His job has filled his vision that he does not have focus on his personal goals or realize that time is running by.

3. Learn more than how you work:

One of the greatest mistake many people make is to concentrate solely on trying to earn. Except you do some kind menial jobs, you will soon discover that your pay is not based on how long or hard you work but on what you know and how it translates to visible success. If the job you are doing is not adding anything to you, drop it. If you don't, it will soon drop you. Learn more. Your job should primarily train you than give you money. Money can be spent but what you learn stays with you. What is more interesting is that, what you learn can always produce money for you on the long run.

4. You are not in control if you need salary:

To get a salary means you must have an employer and work by his rules. This is what will qualify you to earn your pay. What this means is that you are not in total control of your life. Your employer has a form of control over you. You may quit working for him, but you will still be under the control of an employer if you get another job. Do you know that if some people do not receive their salary for this month, there is a big problem? If the salary that should be paid by 27th gets paid three days later, they would get worried. Why? Because whosoever controls your finance controls you.

5. You are responsible for your financial state:

It is your responsibility for how your finances have become. Ultimately, no one is to be blamed for your financial status. Not your siblings. Not your boss. Not a distant relative. Not the government. Not even recession. You are totally responsible for your life. It is up to you to decide whether to "just earn a living" or live beyond your job. The decision lies in whether you choose to become an entrepreneur rather than a worker. It is in your decision whether to make money for someone else or for yourself. It is in your decision to help another man make his dreams come true or to work on yours. The key is in deciding to have your business or just flow with the tide.
