When we are prepared for beautiful moments in our life, we should also be prepared for tough times as well. Every working individual should think about keeping themselves ready if their source of income stops some day. The income that we receive today may not stay with us permanently. There are several reasons one can think of for the source of income to stop. In such situations, we have to be ready to stand on our own leg. There should be proper backup plans available ready with us to lead the remaining life or to get another source of income.
O,f course depression will be a normal symptom for any individual who comes across such situations. It would be quite surprised if someone is not depressed in such situations. But we have to understand that it is not going to be the end of our life. If we have few doors closed, there will always be other doors open for us. Depression can lead to a lack of self-confidence. Without self-confidence, we will not be able to get up form the fall that we had. Depression is the state of mind that arises whenever we have problems. Depression is good if it is capable of realizing our mistakes and make us do things better in the future. In situations where there was no mistake on our part, depression will still occur and we have to get out of it.
People who are well off today earning a decent money would have not thought about losing their source of income at all. Why would someone worry about their job if they are paid well and treated well in their jobs? But we have to definitely have some backup plans. If someone is coming and asking you the question “What will you do if your job is taken from you and you end up having no income from tomorrow?”, you should be able to answer that question. If you had not thought about that question yet, it is the right time to do it. Creating an alternative passive income source is always good. You should be able to feed yourselves and your family even after your source of income stops. Creating additional income sources as a backup plan will help you stay relaxed. The additional income that you gain will also help you retire soon from your current job.
Skills play a vital role
Your income is not directly dependent on your skills. However, you will be able to create a decent income with the help of your skills. If you have the right skills, you need not worry about your source of income. You will be sold well in any place and you will be able to get a job easily. Skills play a vital role in creating a valuable person. With the right skills, a person will be able to survive in many situations. We have to be like water in taking shapes. If a water is poured into a cubical container, water takes cubical shape. When water is poured into the conical container, it takes the shape of the container. Similarly, we should be ready to take any shape when thrown anywhere in our domain to survive. In order to do that skills are very important.
