19 Questions To See If You Have An Employee Mindset

People who have an employee mindset will trade their time, their families, 

their relationships, and their freedom for money!

The question: How do you know if you have an employee mindset? We all know what an employee is. The way someone thinks is their mindset. So, are you thinking like an employee most of the time?

You would think that this is a very simple question to answer, or is it? I find that the question is easier to ask than to answer. The answer is quite long and detailed. But we’ll strive to answer quite a bit of it here in this post.

First, a quiz to see where you are.

1) Have you been gainfully employed for 3 years or more?

2) Are you concerned about the lack of raises?

3) Is retirement a concern?

4) Taking your two weeks vacation each year feels well deserved?

5) Are you proud of the fact that you have held down a job for more than three years?

6) When people ask you, “what do you do”? Your response starts out with, “I am a”?

7) Are you concerned about what your boss thinks about your longevity with the company?

8) Getting a new manager causes you concern about your stability with the company?

9) You might be fired or let go in the next month. Did I cause you nightmares?

10) When you get stressed for money – do you think about getting another job?

11) Are you currently working more than one job?

12) If you have a spouse, are there more than two jobs between the two of you?

13) The last time you went on vacation did you work overtime to have extra money for the trip?

14) Are your children use to having sitters or staying over someone else’s house while you and your spouse work?

15) To pay bills off you work overtime?

16) Even though you have some savings do you still work overtime?

q17) If given the opportunity would you want to work overtime?

18) You currently work full-time (40 hours a week). Your job is willing to let anyone who wants it to work up to another 30 hours a week overtime, would you?

19) You have a child who is turning 13 or 16 in a few months. What comes to your mind first to make the money?

So how did you do? Most of these questions were asked a certain way on purpose. The goal was to help you to see what is the priority in the life of someone who has an employee mindset. It’s not family or friends, it’s not themselves, it’s really not your place of employment. People with an employee mindset have a focus on MONEY. And to get that money they need they have made a conscious decision to sacrifice their family time, their personal time, and their relationship with friends that they really like. Just so they can have the funds available when they are with the above people. The problem is that they are almost never with them because employee minded people are always working. This, my friends, is what Robert Kiyosaki called the “Rat Race”.

Being embedded into the mindset of an employee keeps you locked in to working longer and harder. And working longer and harder keeps you employed. It becomes a never ending cycle of trading time and freedom for money.

People who have an employee mindset will trade their time, their families, 

their relationships, and their freedom for money!

To break this crazy cycle of getting know where and spending all of what makes you, you. You have to do something different, something that goes against the so-called rules. That’s right you have to break the rules to get your time freedom back. You have to break the rules to get your relationships back. You are going to have to break the rules to be able to take care of yourself the way you want.
