About two weeks ago I was with an elder friend of mine. He is the owner and proprietor of a school where I was once the headmaster.
We sat down together to talk about his school and how we can make his school progress and more profitable.
Guess one of those things he`s planning so as to have a more lucrative business?
He told me, “This person will be sacked (in the next three weeks or so)”. I asked him, “Have you told her about your plan (to sack her)?” He answered, NO.
He as well told me about someone he plans to sack soon (probably in the next three months) and another lady he`s planning to sack (maybe in the next one year or so, depending on whenever he finds a chance to do so).
Now think about this. His employees never know about this plan. They think they have a job, while their employer has already mapped out how he will send them off his business.
Do you say this is evil?
But you see, you never can tell what your employer is planning against you, except you`re indispensable.
There are indispensable employees.
Their employers cannot do without them or it`s very difficult to do without them. Such employees hold the pillar of the business or they are contributing to the progress of their employers` business in such way nobody can.
If you think you`re indispensable to your employer or the organization you`re working for, then you`re save. If otherwise, you never can tell what your employer is planning against you.
Job is no longer safe. If your financial live isn`t in your palm, it`s not save.
There are two ways by which you can truly be safe and secure, financially. First is if you own your own business. Second is if you`re indispensable to the company or organization you`re working for.
If you think you can (believe me, you can), start planning how to own a successful business of your own.
No. you won`t resign your present job now. But you will start preparing your mind for the business world.
Start learning entrepreneurship. Start upgrading your business skills. Start reading great business books.
Start thinking business. Start talking business. Start observing how businesses are being run.
If you think the business world is not for you, then, the only option you have is to be an indispensable employee.
That means you have to build up the require skills to make yourself more relevant to the industry you`re working in.
You must either be an owner of your own business or you`ll become a great pillar, strong and indispensable in another man`s business.
If you`re “just an employee” then, your financial future is not safe.
Your Fiend, Stephen.
