Everyone wants to the boss. Or is it just a Filipino thing? Either way, we always dreamed of being on top. I myself is dreaming of being the CEO of a big corporation! I heard people dreaming to be the manager, the supervisor, or whatever-job-title-you-can-think-of.
There’s nothing wrong about dreaming of being on top, especially if it means more opportunities, and more money to earn.
However, I met people who would rather stay on what we like to call the “ordinary citizen” path.
I was shocked, to be honest as I was not used of hearing it. Isn’t being the boss way better? You are the boss!
But then I realized that there is nothing wrong in not wanting to be the big shot everyone is dreaming of because being the boss also means having more responsibility.
If being boss means losing time with your family, compromising your values, giving you stress and immunity, then I ‘d rather be the ordinary citizen as well. And we have to be realistic to admit that. It is not all about the glamour! And trust me with this, I’ve seen this.
