Working Without Fear: Breaking Free from the Rat Race

Are you one of the many people who wake up each morning with a sense of dread about going to work? Do you feel like you're stuck in a never-ending cycle of work and bills, with no escape in sight? If so, you're not alone. [It means I am one of them, hey, I am human too] Today, I have something in my mind that I wish to share with you that makes me wake up slightly better rather than dragging myself out of the bed.

But what if I told you there's a way to break free from the rat race and work without fear? It all starts with a simple mindset shift - working like you don't need the job.

Working like you don't need the job

This might sound counterintuitive at first, but hear me out. When you work like you don't need the job, you free yourself from the fear of losing it. You focus on doing the right thing, making positive changes in the company, and giving your best effort every day. This mindset helps you perform at your highest level and achieve success, regardless of whether you stay in your current job or move on to something else.

Please, I mean the positive mindset change. You can assume you working like you don't need the job and come late, not being responsible, delaying your dateline and etc. But that is not what I mean in this statement.

But why do so many people feel trapped in the rat race in the first place? There are many reasons, but one of the most common is a lack of financial knowledge and awareness. Many people don't realize they're stuck in the rat race until it's too late. They're so busy working to pay the bills that they don't have time to explore new opportunities, acquire new skills, or invest in themselves.

Can you break away from the rat race?

That's why it's crucial to break free from the cycle of fear and financial insecurity. Start by educating yourself about personal finance, investing, and entrepreneurship. Take courses, read books, and attend workshops to expand your knowledge and skills. This will help you build a solid financial foundation and create opportunities for yourself outside of the rat race. I am very sure this process does not happen overnight. We took at least 12 years in school to get ourselves ready for employment. If you want a career switch or to build a new skill, please allow some time for yourself to grow a new muscle.

But it's not just about finances. To truly work without fear, you need to cultivate a mindset of abundance and possibility. Instead of thinking about all the things that could go wrong, focus on what could go right. You can practice visualization and visualize yourself succeeding, achieving your goals, and living the life you've always wanted. It may sound like something magical and unreal but that is a method practised by many successful people. It does not take long and yet can be achieved. I call it fake it until you make it.


In conclusion, working without fear is not just about finances, but also mindset and knowledge. By shifting your mindset, educating yourself, and visualizing your desired outcome, you can break free from the rat race and work towards a more fulfilling and successful life. Remember, it's never too late to start working towards your dreams. With the right mindset and tools, anything is possible.

On top of that, there are many entrepreneurship opportunities available that you might find suitable for you.
