Are you working long hours? Has your job taken up most of your days? Did you forget why you are working so hard?
Often time we focus so hard on the things we think are important, and forget the ones that are most important. You get so caught up in working longer and harder to provide for the ones you love, you miss out on precious time you could be spending with your family. If you ask your children to choose between a BMW and more time with you, they'll pick you. My dad worked two jobs to provide a better life for our family, all I really wanted was to play catch with him.
You don't have to settle for less. You just have change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change. Do you want more time with your family? Start working smarter not harder. I was caught up in that rut of working 70 hours a week to get more and more. I went days without seeing my kids, and we live in the same house.
My pain got big enough where I actually did something about it. I found a way to work less and make more. I found a way home to my children. I truly believe we were not put here on this planet to live a life of mediocrity, we were not meant to struggle. We all deserve more, our families deserve more. There is a way to spend more time with your family.
