Overcoming the 9 to 5 Mindset

Everyone dreams of breaking the cycle of poverty. It’s the goal of many and our hope for all of our followers. However, in today’s world, most people are bound by the constraints placed on them by outdated ideas of what working hard means. We want to change these mindsets.

Today, join these Rainmakers, as we discuss the pitfalls of the 9 to 5 mindset and how you can be the one to step outside of those boundaries.

The Problematic Scarcity Mindset

At the root of most traditional thinking is a singular problem: the scarcity mindset. Deeply ingrained within our culture, this way of thinking overemphasizes the things we are missing out on. Our brains react to this by focusing on what we’re missing out; we become unable to think about anything but what we lack.

This often leads to people taking positions that may not actually benefit them. In many instances, people settle for the traditional and outdated 9–5 job just to avoid that feeling of missing out. But here’s the trick: you don’t actually need to do this. You can be successful without throwing yourself into the time-draining grind.

Conquering Your Fears

At the heart of the scarcity mindset is fear. People are naturally afraid of the unknown. We dislike uncertainty. By taking the standard 9–5 grind job, we trade our valuable time for a sense of security. Sure, you have a stable and reliable income. But the tradeoff is that you will invariably miss out on precious time and memories with your loved ones.

That’s not the life you want to live.

You want freedom, and the first step to getting there is to overcome your fear. In doing so, you can rise above your scarcity mindset. You can have both a stable life and a fulfilling family life.

Know Your Value

If you still find yourself suffering from a bit of classical FOMO, then remind yourself of your value. You, as a person, are entitled to the joys of being with your family. You do not need the validation of a standard 9–5 job. Step outside of the norm. Be bold enough to push boundaries and think creatively. The market is rife with opportunities right now, and all you need to do is find the right niche.

How to Start a Business

Are you ready to get out of the rat race and start truly enjoying your life? The solution is out there, and it’s simple: passive income. You don’t need to start a business or create a full-blown company. You don’t need to invest millions in creating customer services and returns departments. All you need is an idea and worthwhile products or services.

For some people, you may find inspiration in the struggles you face. Learning from your problems and failures often means finding a solution that can work for others. For others, it may mean offering their services.

If you do happen to go the route of an entrepreneur, however, there’s an invaluable tool that you should know about: FBA.

What is Fulfillment by Amazon?

FBA, short for Fulfillment by Amazon, is the company’s small-business-boosting platform for listing, selling, and shipping your products across the world. This seller central style service is useful for a variety of businesses and models. From books and films to used goods, FBA can boost a small business’ potential.

Amazon fulfillment services work like this:

  1. You take your product or service and your business ideas to an Amazon dropoff point.
  2. Amazon stores your products in their warehouses.
  3. Amazon will list the product on their site.
  4. When someone buys your product, Amazon ships the package for you and even handles the customer service.
  5. You don’t have to do a thing! After drop-off, you merely wait for the profit to hit your account.

All of this means that Amazon sellers receive passive income success with minimal personal investment. The only price you pay is the cost to procure your items and a small fulfillment fee for each sale. With FBA, you can easily turn selling on Amazon into a real, lucrative business.
