Motivational Message Of The Week: Re-Echoing “10 Reasons Why You Do Not Need A Job” To Be Successful


Apart from one particular person I know in life that does not see any necessity in being successful; I believe every individual will want to be successful. This particular person I know is “Mr Sucker”.

It may sound funny to know that “Mr Sucker” is not an ordinary “Joe” on the street but an indoctrinated and educated “chap” who over the years have been made to believe in an entrenched manner that “working for others is cool and it is the best in this world”. If you have this mindset, then I am sorry to say you are that “Mr Sucker”.

I used to be “Mr Sucker” until I stumbled on an article written by “Steve Pavlina” captioned “10 Reasons Why You Do Not Need A JoB”.  The heading of the article was enough to catch my attention and I am proud to say after I read it, I decided to get out of the “Mr Sucker” skin and become the successful man I have always wanted to be. That was the point of dramatic change in my life.

Success is a dicey concept, therefore difficult to attain if you do not understand in full the road map as well as the tips needed to grab it. If a treasure is positioned at the South Pole and in your attempt to discover this treasure, you head towards the North Pole, what is the probability that you will find this treasure?

More than half of the population chasing success have misread the map and therefore heading towards the wrong direction. The more efforts they put in their search, the more they alienate themselves from success since they are moving in an opposite direction.

How many times or years have you tried to achieve the success you dream for in life and yet you do not feel that you are getting anywhere closer? Instead of moving closer, you are distancing yourself.

One of most important but simplest of the puzzles that needs to be solved so as to get you closer to success is getting ride off the mindset “working for somebody” and embrace “working for yourself”.

As a law student, I find it sicken when I think about the structure of the educational systems in most part of the world.  Formal especially Higher Education is designed in such a way that, you are mostly taught “How to work for somebody” and not “How to work for yourself”.

It is even more sicken to know that, it seems most of us are programmed to think that working for “somebody is the coolest thing ever”. After all the education and training, what do we do? Start looking for jobs. Working for someone takes you far away from your dreams and success.

You can achieve the success you desire and deserve in this manner but it takes a hell of hard work and years of hustle, you might even die on the way before you get there. Most people who adopt this way of seeking success do not ever make it. This is never the coolest thing in the world; it is the greatest myth which continues to be passed on from one generation to another.

It sucks to know that so many of mankind are being “suckered” into failure so as to make us perpetual “Suckers”.

I hope after reading my introduction above together with Pavlina’s article which I have provided in full text below, you will reboot your mind in a full force towards the right direction which is working for yourself.

The article below was written in 2006 By Steve Pavilon. This is the article that made me realized I was absolutely heading the wrong direction, It placed me in the right direction and If you care to read it, you will fetch the success you desire.


Here are some reasons you should do everything in your power to avoid getting a job:

1. Income for dummies.

Getting a job and trading your time for money may seem like a good idea.  There’s only one problem with it.  It’s stupid!  It’s the stupidest way you can possibly generate income!  This is truly income for dummies.

Why is getting a job so dumb?  Because you only get paid when you’re working.  Don’t you see a problem with that, or have you been so thoroughly brainwashed into thinking it’s reasonable and intelligent to only earn income when you’re working?  Have you never considered that it might be better to be paid even when you’re not working?  Who taught you that you could only earn income while working?  Some other brainwashed employee perhaps?

Don’t you think your life would be much easier if you got paid while you were eating, sleeping, and playing with the kids too?  Why not get paid 24/7?  Get paid whether you work or not.  Don’t your plants grow even when you aren’t tending to them?  Why not your bank account?

Who cares how many hours you work?  Only a handful of people on this entire planet care how much time you spend at the office.  Most of us won’t even notice whether you work 6 hours a week or 60.  But if you have something of value to provide that matters to us, a number of us will be happy to pull out our wallets and pay you for it.  We don’t care about your time — we only care enough to pay for the value we receive.  Do you really care how long it took me to write this article?  Would you pay me twice as much if it took me 6 hours vs. only 3?

Non-dummies often start out on the traditional income for dummies path.  So don’t feel bad if you’re just now realizing you’ve been suckered.  Non-dummies eventually realize that trading time for money is indeed extremely dumb and that there must be a better way.  And of course there is a better way.  The key is to de-couple your value from your time.

Smart people build systems that generate income 24/7, especially passive income.  This can include starting a business, building a web site, becoming an investor, or generating royalty income from creative work.  The system delivers the ongoing value to people and generates income from it, and once it’s in motion, it runs continuously whether you tend to it or not.  From that moment on, the bulk of your time can be invested in increasing your income (by refining your system or spawning new ones) instead of merely maintaining your income.

This web site is an example of such a system.  At the time of this writing, it generates about $9000 a month in income for me (update: $40,000 a month as of 10/31/06), and it isn’t my only income stream either.  I write each article just once (fixed time investment), and people can extract value from them year after year.  The web server delivers the value, and other systems (most of which I didn’t even build and don’t even understand) collect income and deposit it automatically into my bank account.  It’s not perfectly passive, but I love writing and would do it for free anyway.  But of course it cost me a lot of money to launch this business, right?  Um, yeah, $9 is an awful lot these days (to register the domain name).  Everything after that was profit.

Sure it takes some upfront time and effort to design and implement your own income-generating systems.  But you don’t have to reinvent the wheel — feel free to use existing systems like ad networks and affiliate programs.  Once you get going, you won’t have to work so many hours to support yourself.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be out having dinner with your spouse, knowing that while you’re eating, you’re earning money?  If you want to keep working long hours because you enjoy it, go right ahead.  If you want to sit around doing nothing, feel free.  As long as your system continues delivering value to others, you’ll keep getting paid whether you’re working or not.

Your local bookstore is filled with books containing workable systems others have already designed, tested, and debugged.  Nobody is born knowing how to start a business or generate investment income, but you can easily learn it.  How long it takes you to figure it out is irrelevant because the time is going to pass anyway.  You might as well emerge at some future point as the owner of income-generating systems as opposed to a lifelong wage slave.  This isn’t all or nothing.  If your system only generates a few hundred dollars a month, that’s a significant step in the right direction.

2. Limited experience.

You might think it’s important to get a job to gain experience.  But that’s like saying you should play golf to get experience playing golf.  You gain experience from living, regardless of whether you have a job or not.  A job only gives you experience at that job, but you gain ”experience” doing just about anything, so that’s no real benefit at all.  Sit around doing nothing for a couple years, and you can call yourself an experienced meditator, philosopher, or politician.

The problem with getting experience from a job is that you usually just repeat the same limited experience over and over.  You learn a lot in the beginning and then stagnate.  This forces you to miss other experiences that would be much more valuable.  And if your limited skill set ever becomes obsolete, then your experience won’t be worth squat.  In fact, ask yourself what the experience you’re gaining right now will be worth in 20-30 years.  Will your job even exist then?

Consider this.  Which experience would you rather gain?  The knowledge of how to do a specific job really well — one that you can only monetize by trading your time for money – or the knowledge of how to enjoy financial abundance for the rest of your life without ever needing a job again?  Now I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have the latter experience.  That seems a lot more useful in the real world, wouldn’t you say?

3. Lifelong domestication.

Getting a job is like enrolling in a human domestication program.  You learn how to be a good pet.

Look around you.  Really look.  What do you see?  Are these the surroundings of a free human being?  Or are you living in a cage for unconscious animals?  Have you fallen in love with the color beige?

How’s your obedience training coming along?  Does your master reward your good behavior?  Do you get disciplined if you fail to obey your master’s commands?

Is there any spark of free will left inside you?  Or has your conditioning made you a pet for life?

Humans are not meant to be raised in cages.  You poor thing…  Continue Reading From Here

  1. So to start with, it’s about figuring out where my success is? That’s a good way of looking at it to start with and come to think of it I do see my pals and sometimes myself making assumptions about where my success lies. I could be KILLING myself slaving away working towards being something when I have the skills and mindset to be successful at something else. I think it’s too challenging for some people though to accept and recognize that this might be the case especially if much effort has been put into what you are currently aiming for. I think I have come to realise though that you have to make HUGE sacrifices sometimes to make it. I am currently in a situation now where I have spent the last 5-6 years chasing to within an inch of my life the same goal but the thought of dropping that goal is very challenging. I want this thing real bad because it’s my dream. One thing I can’t deny though I have always wanted control of my income by having or learning a skill that allows me to work for me. I’ve heard it’s real hard work obviously you work for yourself there is no one to give you a break, relieve you, approve your annual leave or take over your work load when you are away but then saying that I watched a documentary last year about Britain’s Millionaires and they all said they either dropped out or didn’t go to uni because it only teaches you to work for someone else and you don’t become a millionaire doing that! So yes it’s hard and a big leap but it is very possible. I’m currently working on something and am lucky enough to have support to make it happen but when I tell you I hardly have time to eat and chill or watch TV or spend time with my boyfriend but when it works out it will be well and truly worth it! Thanks Mr Motivator aka Chris lol It can’t be denied that you have a major talent for this sort of thing! and I guess you are a succesful blogger so who better to listen to ? Right? God Bless as always!

  2. Obviously success come from within unless you have the right mind set to achieve the impossible. You have to be clear about your vision for your project are else you doomed and like Chris said it can kill you.

    Steve Pavlina speak the truth and he’s one of the best copywriter after the late Gary Halbert. Since I wanna get into online marketing and as a investor I have read some his works and this guy is amazing. Indeed, if you meet these folks on business and marketing forum they offering the rock solid info for free just like how Chris has provided. Because of their vast knowledge some of these guys are making an absolute killing.   

    Nice one Chris. Another “masterpiece” indeed. And I hope you already make some fantastic dough from your website “” because I can see some serious advertising going on this website which I believe generate extra cash.


  3. I took my time read through this and I must say I have learnt something new,Thanks Chris, you always make a difference.Enjoy ur week.
