The Rat Race
Here is a video about “The Rat Race”. It is a powerful short film. Even without voices, the message that the video creator hope to send out is indeed strong and resonates with the majority of the people…because most people are stuck in the rat race.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the rat race is means a way of life in modern society in which people compete with each other for power and money.
Another way to put it, you are stuck in the world the society has conditioned you. Work hard, get good grades, get a high paying job, buy the things you love, retire with a lot of cash and enjoy your days. Ideal right? Not until you watch this short film and see the reality of society.
The Rat Race – A Short Film
How was the video?
Is the fact of life disturbing for you?
I know for a fact that if you hate rats, you will hate the video even more…LoL
So a summary of what is happening…
In the rat race, the society has conditioned you to tie “happiness” to materials. When you constantly buy “happiness”, it is suppose to make you happier.
But look at the rat in the film, was he happy?
Go watch till the end if you haven’t watch the film 😀
The answer is no.
To “get those happiness” requires money and the only way the rat knows how to make money is by being tied to his 9 – 5 desk job.
No job = no money = no happiness
So how do you get out of the 9 – 5 desk job?
How do you get out of the rat race?
If you have read “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, the solution is to create a passive income. In the book, the main streams of passive income discussed were real estate, royalties, and paper investments such as stocks / bonds / dividends.
However, in 2018, the way to a passive income is still real estate…but it is “virtual”
This means that online marketing is the way to go in this era.
And just like any college or university degrees, to get really good with online marketing, you will need EDUCATION.
You will need a COMMUNITY of people who will push and inspire you to success.
You will need COACHES who will help you along the way to help you make that first sale and repeat that process.
And you will need to EARN while you LEARN because only then you will stay motivated.
And the best place to start is none other than…
It is time to plan your retirement from the rat race and lead the life that you deserve 🙂
