Employment after an Injury Possibilities and Availability
This is something that you should think about. Either injured or not, what have you to offer, when you’re unable to work.
A Personal Story
I look back at my car accident where I was off work for a year with no idea if I could work again. After all with major head and spinal injuries, it becomes very hard to consider what the future will be like.
It was 1990 the same year the internet started to move into the people’s life’s
Just think of this what happened after the car accident.
The specialist said you will probably never work again and if you do it will either be a street cleaner, a cleaner in a motel or something similar.
Now think, what if you were in that situation right now.
How long would you survive?
What have you in place to overcome
- Financial Costs
- Health Costs
- Day to Day living Costs
How would you and your family life be for the next 12 months? what is your Employment after an Injury or disaster?
I was a mechanic working on mine sites making a healthy living. Then 10 months of no income. Just a small payment from work and living off savings.
Then add in the split of the family, loss of house and living with strangers? What and where will you be?
10-months after the accident I was given the opportunity to a new job career and with sheer determination and self-motivation have achieved a lot in life.
The majority of people do not do very well after an accident. Seriously there are a lot of people and maybe yourself who think
“It will never happen to me”
just like I thought. And I really hope it never does. But we have to be serious about it. What the future holds and where you stand.
So think about it now. If you had a major injury which stopped you from working for a year.
Where would you be having 10 – 12 months off work?
It may not be a car accident, it may be the loss of your job, a natural disaster like an earthquake, tornado etc.
This is why it is important not to just think about here and now but your future.
The reason, WHY? you should consider a 2nd income, which could easily turn into an income or make it a full-time income.
Most people will just keep looking and thinking and really go nowhere in life.
Then when a problem arises, how do you think the stress level would be?
Now, it is so much easier to consider your future and think. How do I?
Look at your current situation and think about what I do now.
Currently, I have an income online. Even Employment after an Injury is possible when you know what to do.
My hours are varied depending on what each day brings. I have a Remedial/Sports Massage business which I still I enjoy helping people in their health.
This site is a regularly has people visiting it daily and updated regularly.
The good thing about a blog is that you can create it and talk about what you enjoy or how you want to help people. (There are many different ways to make a living online)
But, the visits to my site is 24/7 people visit it while I’m asleep, working at my massage business (about 5-hours a week) and it regularly brings in an income and subscribers.
I don’t need to be sitting in front of a computer 24/7 hoping people will buy. In fact it maybe 2 hours a day just updating or writing an email like this one. And if I have a week off or a year off, there is a website which people are viewing and buying from.
So with an online business, it is possible to have a
- Regular Income
- Working Less
Just think of your job now. Employment after an Injury is a serious problem
When you leave work are you making an income? Probably not, you are probably spending your income.
In fact, your home is costing you 24/7 either by
- Utilities, your fridge is running, right?
- Land taxes
- Maintenance: car, home, garden
Then you have to work out how to save money for a holiday, birthday gifts, Christmas, weddings etc.
It all adds up.
What have you in the way of life of ensuring your income, not insurance but an income
to cover your life against
- Natural Disaster
- Job Loss
Insurance looks after replacement, but not your real income.
Seriously look at learning how to generate an income for life
Don’t be caught out like myself or the approx 2.3 million people who are injured on the roads yearly. Or the 1.3 million who are killed on the road each day.
