Making A Living For Me And My Family
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It wasn’t easy making a living for me and my family. Everyone starts somewhere and it’s usually at the bottom. Best thing about starting at the bottom is that there’s only one way to go and that’s up. Life is weird sometimes but it’s usually up to you to make your life the way you want it to be. I’ve done so many different types of jobs, which has done me a great deal of help.

Learning from Different People

Working at different jobs has helped me greatly. Doing this let me see different types of bosses and supervisors. With each of these bosses I took what I felt I needed to keep learning from them and left whatever bad qualities they had out. Everyone has their flaws and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s up to you to believe in what these people have to say and apply that to your life.

Living by the Example that is set

Most often people settle for what is in front of them and think that’s all there is out there. If you look at any family, they’re usually doing a job similar to what the other is doing. If you were brought up with a family that’s on welfare and some kind of assistance, chances are likely that you’ll end up living the same way. If you’re in a family that does some type of business, you’ll most likely be doing that as well. Truth is, the people around you have a great impact on what you think and how you live, just remember that it’s up to you to live the life you want.

Understanding Jobs

Some of us probably don’t have a choice when it comes to choosing what profession they want to be in. Like me, I love to play sports but being as short as I am I don’t think the chances are good that I’ll become a professional athlete. Most of us don’t end up going to college which will probably limit our chances to do some things like teaching or something that requires a college degree. All these things are another key factor in determining what we will be doing probably for the rest of our lives. This has helped me with making a better living for me and my family.

What you can do if you’re Options are Limited

I’ll admit, I don’t have a college degree and I’m no professional athlete. What I did learn is that you don’t have to settle for the life that is presented to you. There are other things you can do that doesn’t require much knowledge. Like I said, it wasn’t easy making a living for me and my family. I had this drive and determination to make a better life for my kids so I couldn’t settle for anything less than the best. I did my research and life has been really great since then. If you think that it’s impossible to make a living for you and your family, think again. Find the life you want to live and take action now! Good luck and trust me, you can do it.
