Getting out of the Rat Race!

I talk to a lot of people about getting out of the rat race – about the turmoil in their lives – what they are going through, how the dream they had when they were young never materialised…

…we all have unfinished dreams – goals that we set up and never reached…

…I did too.

A short time ago I discovered where I was going wrong and what to do about it. Previously I had wandered aimlessly, following paths not knowing where they would lead.

Some of those paths worked out for the better. A lot of them didn’t.

The trouble was that I didn’t have a plan – I hadn’t set a direction for the way my life was going.

We all tend to fall into things, often without realising the hole we’re falling into. One of those is a job or, as some people call it, a J.O.B. = Just Over Broke.

I vowed, when I was young, that I would not do any job that I didn’t enjoy. I didn’t want to wake up on a Monday morning feeling depressed and hating going into work. In my youth I switched jobs, and locales, frequently, driving my parents crazy in the process!

Settle down or have fun?

All my parents wanted was for me to have steady employment, a career with prospects, and ‘settle down’.

Instead I drove my own road, having a lot of fun, and an equal amount of torment, along the way.

It’s easy to do that when you are young and carefree. But having people that depend on you – a wife, kids, relations – all forces you into circumstances that you probably end up not enjoying as much as you thought.

Approaching retirement it became clear to me that I was no longer in a position to lead the life I had always wanted.

I’d dreamed of a retirement full of travel and excitement – seeing remote places of the world, discovering different cultures and experiences. Instead it looked like I was going to have to go on working till I dropped!

That’s when I realised I needed to make a plan – a life plan or, more accurately in my case, a rest-of-life plan.

And for that I needed an element of freedom – financial freedom. And I needed to get out of the rat race.

Maybe you are in a similar situation? Perhaps you still need to get out of the rat race – unable to escape from the drudgery of your job or regular commute?

Or are you, like I was, facing a retirement where you’ll be virtually destitute, unable to enjoy your leisure time with your loved ones?

Everyone has their own problems. Everyone has their own goals and dreams.

My job is to help you achieve your goals and realise your dreams.

I’m inviting you to download my latest book Retire Free‘ which outlines the simple plan that I used to get out of the rat race and achieve financial freedom. At the end of it you’ll see a way that you and I can formulate an action plan which is best suited to you, personally. Because everyone is different, so no one plan fits all.

  1. Peter your post raises a huge challenge for many folks who are nearing or have reached retirement but, to quote you, because of their financial situation, “unable to enjoy their leisure time with their loved ones”

    So many folks feel a wide range of emotions when it comes to this critical aspect of their life. Not the least of these emotions is guilt – the fact that they are letting down their families and themselves because of the challenging financial situation they have found themselves in at an age when no one wants to employ them.

    There are still options available for people faced with this extremely worrying scenario but it does take some old-fashioned guts and determination to sort this out.

    The obvious answer is to consider an online option but that then raises a whole lot of other perceived challenges like who to trust. If only people would be prepared to speak openly and honestly with experienced online practitioners like you then their nights of lost sleep would be resolved. As a regular reader of your blog, I strongly encourage anyone reading this post and my comment to accept your generous opportunity to at the very minimum, download your Retire Free information.

    Keep up the great work – the world needs more people like you

    Best regards

  2. You’re right, Peter, it’s *not* rocket science! Affiliate marketing is an excellent addition to a strong online portfolio, too. It works at every level of e-commerce entrepreneurship.

    1. Too true, Kjell. We humans like to complicate things to make them ‘better’ when, really, focusing on keeping to a simple system that works is often the best way.
