It’s Monday morning. You’ve woken up to the sound of heavy rain pouring outside your window. Your alarm is about to go off and you have an important meeting first thing so you can’t be late.
Your pet is curled up next to your partner and they both look so cozy. All you really want to do is stay in bed.
But you’ve been working so hard on this project and if you’re not there for the meeting you could lose a big bonus, or your job.
You know the second you walk out that door you’re going to be cold, wet and miserable. Plus driving in the rain SUCKS.
So, do you… ??
A. Snooze the alarm clock and try to come up with some believable excuse to not have to go in
B. Force yourself to get up, you’ve worked too hard to mess things up now.
C. Beg your boss to let you phone into the meeting from home (I mean, technology right?! Hello 2018)
D. Quit your job because you're so fed up with your life and can't handle the stress.
Here’s the thing… I woke up this morning to the sound of pouring rain. I was instantly taken back to all those times in my regular job where I felt exactly the way I’ve described above. Not to mention the stress of driving all day on wet roads with crazy drivers. Most days I would just have to suck it up.
So when I woke up to the sound of rain this morning I couldn’t help but smile. Knowing 3 years ago I decided to choose a different ending. Ok, I didn’t just wake up one morning and choose option D haha.
But I did find a way to build up a side income, which eventually got me to the point where I was able to quit my job. Thanks to that decision I’ve been boss free for just over 3 years now.
And thanks to that decision, I never have to deal with the rain unless it’s by choice!
So, I’ll ask you now, what’s your ending gonna be?....
