Do Tables Still Turn?

I had a conversation with an old friend some time back, it was pretty easy for us to flow as though we totally understood each other well, it was like we were both in each other's heads. Speaking frankly about how a lot of things had changed, around us, and in the world at large. Suddenly we started talking about businesses and the quest for a job. She had been running an online business right from junior high school. I was choked silently because all I knew how to do back then was not write notes in class, showing up late to school, doing homeworks early in the morning. That was basically all I did, but unlike me, she was engaged in better things, more exposed in real sense.

A few months outta high school, that was when it occurred to me that I had to go into better things than stick around. So I began digging the internet, since I was more interested in stuff online than the real world. To me the online world is a better place to be. That was how I stumbled on a lot of business opportunities, investment fields and also how I discovered crypto based blogging platforms.

The difference here is that she started early, I started later, but were both engaged in something where we're being our own boss, and not working as an employee.

While we kept on talking, we just had to crash to how the large population unemployed are really stupid to some extent.

How, you ask?

Here's something I saw online :

"Tables Don't Turn anymore, only the wise ones CHANGE SEATS"

Should I say I was touched by this?

In our conversation, she shared an experience she had with a friend. She runs an online mini store, she puts a couple of things up for sales and gets them transported to whoever requests for them. So, once, she was choked so she decided to get some help. She chatted a friend up, telling her to do a couple of deliveries for her as an employee, earn her commission and still get paid at the end of the month.

Looking at the nature of the job, it isn't stressful, you only have to do a couple of deliveries and that's only when customers request for goods. I also had a couple of experiences of such. And the common observation here is that people "ain't ready to work, yet waiting for a miracle"

Nothing changes around you, unless something changes within you. It's just that simple, unless there's a determination to chase after certain things or goals in life, you can never achieve them while laying at a spot. To me tables don't really turn, those lines lack real time effects unless you determine to do something for a change. Assume you're sitting at a table, there's food at the other end, here on this end you're really hungry, won't you go over to the other end to grab your food?

The thing is laziness is cropping the world and leaving so many useless. If you look at developed countries, there's often a workable population, a huge number of people ready to work, there's division of labor and everyone quite stands up to their job. That's why they are developed, they build together and not just let one person do the entire work.

This is where people should also understand that the government owes them absolutely nothing, if at all there's anything then it should be security, else that, it's either you decide to be useful or remain poor!

Ain't no two ways about it…

Surely you are not far away from the truth

I have someone around me who would prefer to subscribe data for her phone and watch youtube videos all day long or go from one house to another asking for new movie series to watch

she does this on a daily basis and it's not looking as though it is going to change

She has seen almost all the movies you can think about.

And I have another who no matter how many times I tell her about a blogging platform she does not show any interest

Data for her isn't a problem because her mum runs a provision shop so she gets her data funds from there most times

once it seems as though the data will expire without being used up, she resorts to youtube or Facebook video ads

These are people who are not even trying to change anything in their lives.

The first party had told me once she went to learn how to do make-up but returned home because of something she said the boss did

When I thought it over, it did not make any sense. That is because if the boss was lazy about teaching them, they were other trainees who knew the job, all she needed to do was befriend them, and they teach her.

This was how I learn how to use my computer and various software when I first started my training. I learned everything from a colleague because my boss was a busy person

If people don't want to change their situation, no one should blame the government.

Some people are not just willing to change ,they are used to the status quo,that is why i ensure i avoid keeping friends who have such attitude...

I feel the same way and it's been quiet a learning experience these last few years especially, the status quo and acceptance of it is how things got so messed up in the first place

amen to that, be useful even in hard times try to diversify or at least learn something is like a land of zombies in America at times but perhaps everyone feels that way no matter where they are from
sorta akin to adapt or die , at times well intentioned interference can alter the path
"nice post" but really it is,
