Whether you are into online or offline business, your primary goal must be to escape the rat race.
I really don’t care what is the meaning of the rat race. I first encountered the term when I read the book of Robert Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”
Here is the wiki meaning: A rat race is an endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit. It conjures up the image of the futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape while running around a maze or in a wheel. Source: Rat Race
To explain it in its simplest meaning, escaping the rat race is like getting out of the never ending pursuit.
It is similar to an employee who routinely wakes up early in the morning, goes to work, and go home in the late afternoon in order to pay the bills and debts.
So when you finally manage to escape the rat race, it means that you are already financially free. Not only that, you can now do whatever you want because you are the one dictating how you use your time.
But getting out of rat race is not an easy task. Heck, if that is so easy, majority of the people must have been millionaires already and having a lot of good times.
The reality is, only few people are out of the rat race. These are the successful business owners and investors. The one thing common among them is the way they manage their cash flows.
To most people, most of their income goes to either expenses and liabilities like: buying expensive gadgets, cars, and anything that needs money in order to function well.
However, the few people who mastered their cash flow and the ones that goes out of the rat race, make sure that most of their income are spend towards assets like: investments, business, and anything that puts money to the pockets.
These few people are making money machines. They make their money works for them – thus, giving them the time and financial freedom.
Knowing the information above does not really follows that you will soon escape the rat race! Mind you, there are millions of people who already knew this but fails to implement it in their lives.
Hence, being in the rat race is a life struggle and going out of it is also a struggle. You just have to stay determined, focus, and disciplined enough to finally escape the rat race.
Are you still in the rat race now?
