They always say, don’t judge a book by its cover, but this one I judged it. The very first time I saw it I knew it was a sales gimmick. That’s what we always say when something is too good to be true right?
How can I not need a job when I need all the money that I can lay my hands on? How am I supposed to foot my bills without a job? Well, if you want to know how this is possible, then Dr. Kinyanjui Nganga has the answer for you.
Dr. Kinyanjui Nganga argues that you are not supposed to stay employed for the rest of your life. Employment is supposed to be your keystart to your brand creation and purpose development. He describes employment as a prison. Why? Because when you are in prison, someone decides when you wake up, when you clean up, where you sleep, what you eat, who you meet, when you sleep among other things.
When you are in employment, you just can’t wake up when you feel like and you can’t run your errands when you feel like. You have to plan your schedule around your work schedule. Your work has to be given first priority. The salary that you get, determines where you live, which restaurants you visit and your lifestyle as a whole. He likens this to imprisonment.
Employment has a way of sucking your creative energy away. It has the ability to destroy your self confidence as a creative being and gradually develop a dependant mentality.
To help you drive the point home, the author has given stories of a number of people who fought against all odds to create renowned brands. Some of these people quit their jobs just to work on their purpose. It was not an easy road. They endured, reinvented themselves and sought out creative ways to grow their brands.
Kinyanjui Nganga goes further to advise that, do not leave your job without strategizing. Plan in advance and get a mentor to walk with you. All you need to do is work. You don’t need a job for you to live. You were designed to work, not to be employed for the rest of your life.
So take charge, use the money that you get from employment to slowly build your empire and strategically plan your exit to freedom.
