If you’ve seenĀ ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ then you know what the term institutionalized means. This is what happens to a person when they are in a controlled environment for so long that it becomes the only way of life for them.

This is where I’m headed and it has to stop now! Of course, I’m not in prison fending off sodomites and tarring roofs, but I am stuck in the mundane existence we all know as corporate America, the 9-5, or the rat race. Millions of Americans are living like they have no options and no choice to have a better life and it’s a tragedy.

Throughout our formative years, we are all trained on how to be sheep. From an early age, we are taught to get good grades in school, go to college, and get a job. We are thenĀ led to believe that we need to work hard, make ends meet, provide for your family, and retire at age 65 with a gold watch.

What ever happened to the classes that taught us how to find what we love to do more than anything else and turn it into a business? It would be great if junior high and high schools taught kids about finance, economics, taxes, and entrepreneurship, but they don’t. They get to learn history, art, social studies, and algebra.

These subjects certainly have merit, but are they going to teach us what it’s like out in the real world? Will they teach us how to start our own business? Do they teach us anything at all about success? I honestly can’t think of how any of my classes helped me after graduation.

So now we have a workforce filled with people who accept the daily grind of a boring job, low pay, and shitty bosses as their way of life. These people are institutionalized and don’t even know it. People that work in jobs they hate but are too afraid to ever leave are institutionalized. People who never question the system are institutionalized. Don’t be one of them!

Personally, I feel like I’m trapped in my current job, but I recognize that it’s temporary (and by temporary, I mean going on 4 years….). I may have to work in my job for another few years while my online business grows and begins producing income, but I WILL get there.

I have not accepted my fate as an employee or someone who trades dollars for hours. No, I have committed myself to succeeding in Internet marketing, period. This blog may not look like much right now, but some day it will be a unstoppable juggernaut!!!

I’m so excited for the day when I can walk away from my desk for good and I hope you’ll be there with me.
