    Do you believe in the concept of job failure i.e. there are some people who are somehow and

    somewhat destined to get fired, have bad luck regarding jobs, and have a very high probability of being unemployable either semi-permanently or permanently? Is it their personality at the workplace?  Are they so unlikeable that superiors/supervisors set them up for failure, creating an atmosphere where the former have no other choice but to leave/resign, or  are they so threatening intellectually and educationally to those in the workplace?  We are talking about highly educated/intelligent people here, not those w/mental and psychological issues/disabilities.

    No. In the contrary, I believe that there are forces who make sure that some people never succeed. These forces are the arms of the capitalist -  be they aware of it or not - and they make it possible for some poor people to remain poor or  jobless people to remain jobless. It is not their fault though, they were just conditioned that way.

      Jonas you speak truth at
      Eph 6:12 because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh,
      Mr 14:7 For you always have the poor with you, and you can do them good whenever you want to, but you will not always have me.
      Jesus was right.

    No, not really.
    I do however believe it is difficult for some people to find a job/career they actually (enjoy) doing.
    Most people don't have jobs that they love!
    When someone loves what they do for a living they're usually good at it and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve maximum results.
    Every company wants employees like that!
    Unfortunately most of us work because we (have to). We trade time for dollars. If we won $5 Million in the lottery we'd quit our jobs in a heartbeat!
    If everyone was of that same mindset there would be no such thing as billionaires! The reason why those people didn't quit their jobs or business after reaching the $5-$10M mark is because {they loved} what they were doing! They didn't approach their work as just a means to pay their bills and keep a roof over their heads.
    People with a poverty mindset are likely to view "work" as something they're forced to do and not something they "want" to do.
    They could never reach the heights of a Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Jay-Z, or Warren Buffet because they would have quit their jobs after they made their first million! The rich are having FUN succeeding in life.
    Wanting to work and loving your work increases your odds of being good at whatever it is one does. Rarely do people like that get fired. These people usually get stolen by other employers or they decide to launch their own business.
    One of the biggest challenges for any adult is finding a career they (love) and becoming an (expert) in that field. One old adage goes:
    "When you do what you love you'll never work another day in your life."
