The Worst Job on Earth?!

Written by Tal Fighel

I used to absolutely dread going to work.

I was a factory worker at a well known window manufacturing company.

My job consisted of pulling pieces of wood off of a chute, checking them for knots and other defects, sorting them accordingly, and then piling them about 5 feet high on pallets.

That's what I did. All day long. Can you say, "brain dead"?

The factory was too noisy to listen to headphones. We all had our separate chutes to work at (yeehaw), andrepparttar work was fast paced, so talking with other co-workers was difficult.

Atrepparttar 117202 end of each day I'd have to pick wood splinters out of my hands (working with gloves was an option, but it made handling and sortingrepparttar 117203 wood much more difficult).

We had rotating shifts so one month I'd be workingrepparttar 117204 day shift, andrepparttar 117205 next I'd be working from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.!

Growing up, I never imagined I'd be stuck in such a horrible job.

But you know what?

I'm actually very GLAD I hadrepparttar 117206 experience of working in a factory!


...Simply because it *motivated* me to get off my lazy butt and do something better with my life!

Like most people, I'd always hadrepparttar 117207 dream of starting my own business and making piles of money (not wood) as a result.

But I learned (the hard way) that dreams aren't worth JACK unless you take steps to achieve them.

Very few people become wealthy and successful in life, simply because very few people take action to achieve their dreams!

...People are scared that they'll fail. They lack faith that their efforts will pay off. They're afraid to risk their time and money. Or they're just plain lazy like I was!
