everythings' cool and dandy. but i'm not happy with the jobscope and the fact that i do not share the same vision as my employers made my life there miserable.
$$ is important but i think for some ppl, dreams and ambitions are almost, if not, more important than $$. well, to me anyway.
let's face it, some are happy to receive their big fat check at the end of a working month. some can only ever be employees.
as for me, i think i'm still relatively young and thus, i decided to strike out on my own.
jus try la! what's there to be scared of? it can't kill u. it'll jus make u go hungry for the 1st year or so if u're fortunate.
otherwise i can always go back to working for some co. or studio.
as for me, i enjoy my own freedom in choosing the type of project to work on, work with and definitely, i'm extremely happy with my lifestyle and my own progress.
oh, and i do enjoy withdrawing my own $$, from the ATM jus like u do, knowing that the $$ i made is no different from the $$ u made, by sweat and blood.
You'll Never Walk Alone! - i have the best job in the world!
Does that lady doctor who earned 4x more than the Photo Lab Owner, really happy about her life or job ? Her job-related health risk is higher than the Photo Lab guy. She may age even before her time, etc etc.
By earning less does NOT mean One is less happy - for he may be proud to run and own his business and Happiness to him may be that he is able to do what he really want or like, or good in.
Do people who drive big cars and own big houses REALLY Happy with their Lives ? Do those who take public transports are NOT happy people ?
You have One Life -- Live it !!
Does that Photo Lab Owner, who earn 1/4x the lady doctor, realyl happy about his life or job? His job-related health risk isn't necessarily lower than the lady doctor. He may age even before his time, etc etc due to exposure to harmful chemicals.
By earning less does NOT mean one is more happy - for he may have his own set of problems that you may not know about, and happiness may be to him, the ability to have the resources to do what he wants or like or good in.
Do people who do NOT drive big cars and own big houses REALLY Happy with their Lives? Do those who take public transport happy people?
Sometimes, it takes the flip of a coin to see the other side.
