One question that you usually hear asked is, “What is your dream job?”
More commonly, however, the question is, “How is your day going?”
The response is “Living the dream.”
The only problem is that this response is usually followed by a sarcastic grunt or eye roll.
I’ve always wanted to respond, “Doesn’t sound like a dream… Sounds more like a nightmare!”
However, if you asked me what my dream job was, I’d have to say that Massage My Stress Away is part of it! I started this site to remind people to relax and take care of themselves. I’m not a hard-core bodybuilder; I’m a computer geek and I love bacon. However, I’ve realized that if I can take the steps needed to improve myself, take care of myself, and get in better shape…well…anyone can do it!
In recent years, I’ve been piecing together a dream. I’ve been envisioning a world where people are free to be the people whom God wants them to be.
However, that’s impossible where people are. The average family is knee-deep in debt. The average person isn’t really prepared for life as an adult (financially speaking). The average person grows up thinking that “life” consists of working, paying bills, and watching Netflix in the evenings.
I realized that I can’t let God use me if I’m serving my bills and only paying debt. I’d always heard that you’re selfish if you want money – that you should be “content” with what you have. I’ve realized that when I said, “I only need enough for my needs,” I was as selfish as the millionaire who hoarded money.
Why? Because we’re both focused on one person—ourselves! The truly generous person wants more than enough. The truly generous person can get out of debt and make money – not for themselves, but for others.
In addition, the person who is debt free can do what they want to and follow their dreams. The typical person in the United States today can’t follow their dreams because they are forced to work to pay bills.
As such, my dream job is doing more of what I’m doing now – helping people to learn about finances, work to become debt free, and build alternate streams of income so that they will be free to do what they are born to do. In a nutshell, all the information I am learning, my “dream” is to pass that knowledge onto others.
Massage My Stress Away is just a part of that dream “job” that I am seeking. I want to help others to break the chains of debt and lack of knowledge and chase after that dream they were born to achieve.
