Looking For Work

Updated on September 18, 2017

I recently met a young man who said that he was looking for a job. I made a comment that my boss was looking for people to come work. I also told him about the rates that the boss pays. At this the young man's ear perked up. He thought that I had a pretty great job, and that he would like to get something like that. I gave him the phone number of my boss and told him to get in contact with him if he wanted the job. He assured me that he did, and was grateful for me putting him in contact with a job opportunity. I also talked to my boss saying that this young man would likely be in contact with him. My boss agreed that this sounded like a good man, and he was willing to give this young man a shot.

Instead of taking me up on this opportunity no contact was made between this young man and my boss. Had contact been made, a job would have been given. Since it wasn't this man is still out there looking for a job. He had such a great opportunity that he just let go to waste for whatever reason.

In our lives we all have similar things happen. Someone presents us with something that could change our lives. We get all excited about it, and say that we would really like to get involved, or get hired, or a variety of other things. But then we never follow through. In our culture this has become an epidemic of people not following through on the things that they said that they were going to do.

It amazes me that in the current economic climate people are looking for work, and employers have positions that they can't fill. What is up with that. Just in the last two days I have seen signs at the donut shop, Lowe's and have heard from my boss that employees are wanted. With this many openings there should be no reason that anyone can't find suitable employment.

What has happened is that we have decided that we want to have the income without doing any of the work. As I have read articles focusing on side hustles and building passive income many suggest finding ways to automate your processes or have them handed over to a VA. However, the people reading this content often want to just go straight to the VA stage without taking the time to set up anything at the beginning. We try to put the cart before the horse and bring in profits where there has been no work.

Another example of this can be seen in one of the guys my boss tried to hire. He showed up saying that he needed work really badly, and that he mostly just needed the money. Less than 15 minutes into working he decided that he didn't like the work and he left. I haven't seen him since. Obviously this is a guy who wanted to find an easy source of income, but was unhappy when he discovered that he had to work for his money.

-God Bless
