"Mr. Robert Jackson died yesterday of complications from doing a lifetime of crap that he didn't really want to do. His condition was further complicated because he also failed to do much, if any, of what he did want to do. Experts report that he died from cramming someone else's idea of life into his body, his brain, and his life ...Miserable in his last years, he passed unpeacefully yesterday at his home. He was surrounded by colleagues fromrepparttar job he hated, and family members who were all just as miserable as he was." (exerpt from "Self Matters" by Phillip C. McGraw, Ph.D.)

Does this sound familiar? I hope not, but it may. Have you ever wondered howrepparttar 117162 wealthy became wealthy? Have you ever wondered whyrepparttar 117163 poor stay poor? Have you ever wondered why employees stay poor?

Forget wealthy, how about how you can maintain your current lifestyle without being chained to a job you hate forrepparttar 117164 rest of your life?

If you're an employee and you care about your future then you better be wondering. The latest statistics on life inrepparttar 117165 good 'ole USA tell a frightening but true story.

In America, after 40 years of working this is what life looks like today:

-29% are dead -63% depend on family and social security

Which means that 92% ofrepparttar 117166 working American population can look forward to being dead or dead broke when they are 60 years old. This doesn't mention that they were also miserable for 40 years on their way to becoming dead or dead broke. Is that your future?

-4% are financially secure -3% are still working -1% are wealthy

Are these people that much different than you? No! They just have different values of how to invest in (not spend) their time, energy and money.

60% of American families are living at or belowrepparttar 117167 poverty level as I write this. That's 140 Million people.

Over 50,000 jobs are cut each year. Inrepparttar 117168 last four months of 2001repparttar 117169 U.S. Labor Department reported that 1.1 MILLION nonfarm jobs were eliminated. That wasn't forrepparttar 117170 year, that was only for four months!

Parents have it rougher than singles do. 1 out of 5 parents works 2 jobs.

Women have it even rougher than men do. Nearly half of working mothers are single parents working 2 jobs.

Children are left to be raised by strangers, which kind of defeatsrepparttar 117171 purpose of being a parent. 74% of children inrepparttar 117172 U.S. are cared for by people other than their parents for most of each week.

So now you're depressed and thinking, "Why did I read this guy's article?" Well, you read it because nothing in life is all good or all bad. Besides that, ignorance may be bliss, but not if you want a better life my friend. It's time to exit fantasyland.
