Many people, when entering the workforce, often look to well known tangible benefits like salary and health care when judging job opportunities. Everyone wants to go to Silicon Valley and make $100,000 or more nowadays even though they know they will be working practically 24/7 for their companies as a result. Besides a high salary, everyone likes healthcare, especially if they have a family.
However, one intangible benefit of specific jobs is overlooked: job security. The stability one can enjoy from working an in-demand job that is not affected by the economy is great, and can help you create the life you want, one day at a time.
Job security and the economic stability such jobs provide is great for anyone who wants to succeed in the arts without wanting to risk everything to make it. Such passionate and optimistic people are perfect for caregiver jobs and nanny jobs, a stable source of employment, which can help fund your ambitions while working.
The Spread of the Survivorship Bias
Survivorship bias refers to the advice people give when they are extremely successful in achieving their goals, often seemingly overnight. Hollywood celebrities tell aspiring actors and screenwriters to drop everything and move to Los Angeles or New York so they too can become a star. This is the pinnacle of survivorship bias in North America right now.
Other forms are the entrepreneur/programmer who coded a billion dollar application or website. In cases of survivorship bias, the thousands upon thousands of people with the same dreams, but who did not achieve as much as they would have liked, are not mentioned.
Whatever your dreams in life are, you can achieve them. However, the first thing you need is a great job with great benefits that allows you to avoid worrying about rent, food, or “making it”. We often overestimate how much we can do in a day and overestimate how much we can do in a lifetime.
When working in caregiver jobs or nanny jobs, you can help make a difference in people’s lives before going home and making a difference in yours. Whether you want to get a Masters degree, learn a language, write a comedy script, become a professional bodybuilder or more, all this can be achieved. However, the first priority is to work a job, like caregiver jobs or nanny jobs that provide you with the income to realize your dreams and ambitions.
Caregiver jobs and nanny jobs are great for people who are compassionate, positive, and willingly undertake responsibility. The skills you will learn as a result of working caregiver jobs or nanny jobs will follow you for the rest of your life. There are no downsides. You get to help others while simultaneously helping yourself. Few other economically stable jobs can provide that.
Before you go all in and bet everything on “making it” within the next few years, consider that you can achieve the same result in the same approximate amount of time while helping others. People with your passion and drive will excel in any industry and there is no better industry to start in than in caregiving. The lessons you learn while working transcend the job market.
