That spot where you just get older and stop looking forward to any type of job
Yes, I'm at that point, and can't think of any job I'm qualified for that makes me eager to begin...it's all just labor to me, at this time and place in life.
Maybe cause I'm not in love, have no family, no friends, thus I have nothing to prove.
Love, being in love, feeling love, really 'drives you', but when absent of that, you become a different person.
Not a mean person, but a lot of things do stop mattering to you, since it's just 'you' you're looking out for.
If I were in love, I'm sure I'd go out and find the most highest paying job I could and feel like I was doing it for 'my lover', or for my spouse, or even for my 'off spring', if I had any...but I don't so it doesn't matter to me, it's just labor.
Different routine maybe, different schedule, but it's the same labor, and working around same old bland soles...I really do need a change.
When poor and save money, can only do a few things with it, can only chose A or B or C, but not them all, where as wealthy people can chose A,B,C and D and more, and if fail at one, so what, wealthy enough to not even feel the loss.
But when poor if wrong and fail, it can be devastating and take years to recover from, and the older you get, the less years you have to recover, and the less enthusiastic energy as well.
I can do something that's fun, more gratifying to my ego, or I can continue to save a bit longer and do something not as fun, but long term could give me a more desirable lifestyle.
One has to do with radio, the other has to do with investing or day trading type stuff.
Day trade stuff would allow me to save income I make now, more, but from home, radio stuff, well that's basically a big money dump, something that would appeal to my ego for 1 hour a week.
It's all about timing, had I had radio opportunity a few years ago, sure, but now, not so sure, cause I'd have to pay the fees until and if got sponsors, and the fees in radio are pretty hefty.
But so is the initial fee to join brokerage firm, only there you pay it all at once.
But once paid, I could earn back, where as with radio, since wouldn't have no sponsors and can't assume I'd get any, it would just be a ton of money, per month, out the window.
And who am I trying to save anyways?...if Rush or Levin, or Art Bell, or any of the other big radio guys couldn't make a difference, why would I?
They're in radio cause they made a business out of radio, had sponsors, become millionaires, I hardly doubt the same would occur with me in one small market and show only airing once a week.
It would just be an ego thing, is why I say timing is everything cause my ego not as big now as it would have been a few years ago if in same situation, and the only situation I speak of is having a small decent amount saved up.
But this is where I have to be very careful, cause is where non investor types, weekly paycheck types, tend to make the wrong decisions and 'money dump'...is why weekly pay check people end up working up into their 70's cause did not learn how to save or invest money wisely.
I think this is that juncture for me...I just gotta save for another few months, then 'do it', the day trade stuff that is.
Then, if still want to do radio, would have enough money to do it then, comfortably.
Only time will tell, we shall say, gotta call that money place again and see what they tell me.
At my age and stage, when mess up, there's no one to bail me out.
Society barely tolerates us when barely getting by, but if totally broke and can't pay bills, no ones your friend, so I must think carefully about my next fiscal move.
