You should be fed up with being broke and always struggling for money. All your boss gives you is a JOB which is an acronym for Just Over Broke. Your job makes you feel you cannot do without salary. People who need salary are slaves to salary. You must be tired of being kept under constant threat and fear of losing your job or being desolate You would have invested the most profitable prime time of your life in employment. A whole 100,000 hours of your life is expended in return for a "take home" which hardly takes you home. You are in company of 96% of other employees returning to the work they hate to go, and to see faces they are not too comfortable to put up with. You should be tired of being forced to live in a vicinity and neighbourhood you wouldn't have chosen to live in. Your employment location has always determined where you will live - if you would not be late to work. Your employer determines what leisure time you have and how you spend it. They must of necessity approve your leave/vacation time. They determine when you leave home and when you get back home daily, when you wake up and when you go to bed. Your personal vision remains buried, and put on hold and subject to the corporate vision. You cannot have two captains in a ship. You are tired of being categorized as an overhead item of expenditure. Your boss will never make you rich and he is not in anyway responsible for making you rich. Your employer's plan is for you to be poorer after your leaving paid employment. What they pay as retirement benefit hardly covers your living expenses at old age. You must not leave all the planing for your retirement to your employers. You will need between 70 - 80% of your pre-retirement income to sustain a comparable standard of living after retirement.

Ever try to explain something to a person who doesn't understand your language? You can talk louder, but it won't help! The same is true of communicating with someone of a different communication style--we must change our approach if our message is to be understood. Consider this book your dictionary for deciphering such communication gaps as: Why does my project manager give me so much more detail than I need? Why does my uncle take everything so personally? Why does this person buy into my presentation when that one doesn't? Use Jackson and Bosse-Smith's unique assessment tool to identify your communication style--Assertive, Animated, Attentive, or Accurate—and learn signals for identifying others' styles. By understanding your own style and that of your colleagues, clients, family members, and friends, you can tailor your approach and content to communicate your ideas more effectively, improving both your relationships with others and your professional success.
