well I tend to think that as humans we have to work. Either you're:
POOR: You don't have to punch a clock, but if you don't have assistance, then you have to really scrowng around to make ends meet. Like you're a bottom feeder. You might have to resort to dumpster diving, and other cheap and freebees out there to feed yourself.
MIDDLE CLASS: This is the biggest scam out there. But sort of a necessary evil I guess. It's the route we're all trained to try to aspired to from the schools we pay to get brainwashed at. But if all the stars align you can get a normal career and resign your life to being a slave for life. This is got to be the biggest scam ever. I can't believe people would actually sign up for this. Like you get two weeks a year off? Oh joy, just shoot me now, please do it!!! I'd way rather try live out in the woods off the land any day than sign up for this nightmare. But by working your azz off you just barely make ends meet. JOB = just over broke
RICH: You can strike out on your own. Try and start a business etc etc. But again, it's very competitive. And there's a million things you need to know, which you won't learn in business books. So essentially you're screwed. Because even if you get business going there's just far too many things you'll never know about that could so easily derail you. But if you're very lucky you work usually about part time hours and you might come out of it with an earily retirement.
SUPER RICH: about the same odds as winning the lotto. Chances are you're not gonna be the next face book.
personally I think that the most freedom lies in being poor. Because less is more. Small is the new big. The less you have the less you have to worry about. You have freedom to roam and see the world. You'll get thrifty and you'll be able to make ends meet one way or another. I wouldn't asipre to this but I'm saying if you want freedom this is an easy and immediate route.
but ya money is a pain in the azz. But personally I don't believe in any law of attraction BS. I believe if you want it you go get it. Because we're a modern society so we exchange value between people. But if we were back in the stone age we'd have to plant seeds to grow crop. And we wouldn't sit around wishing the seeds would plant themselves. We'd go and do it, knowing that's how things grow. But now that we're living in a modern society we have lost touch with the idea that you have to work hard and hussel to get ahead. By doing that you're planting. But anyway I tend to think that I still feel at times like I'd like to just get lost deep the back woods and take my chances living off the land, sink or swim.
did you all notice that most of your replies are in italic?
Just understand that you have the power to change your life in one day!
