8 Company Perks Enabling You to Live Your Best Life Now
We all know that there is a paycheck out there that will enable us not just to get by, but to thrive.
Not just to keep our family afloat, but to give them a platform of opportunities they can leap off from to flourish and thrive.
Some of the key perks that lead to this kind of personal achievement are financial stability, time off, personal growth, and personal fulfillment.
Unfortunately, many companies offer positions with few perks if any and paychecks that are designed to keep people in their place. These kinds of positions have employees driving in circuits to and from work, too tired upon getting home in the evenings to do much beyond enjoying a TV dinner in front of the tube and then checking out for the night. Too tired in the morning to make eggs, grits, toast and to sit down with the family while the dog barks at the paperboy who just left the morning paper on your doorstep for you to enjoy.
You get the picture. Our jobs often keep us from living the lives that we dream of living, with the time and money to do what we want to do in life.
So just what are the perks and advantages that lead to a healthy lifestyle?
Let us now enumerate some of the privileges that lead to the stress-free lifestyle we have outlined, a life where we have time to enjoy not just a quick to-go cup of coffee, but a tall cold glass of OJ with the fam before heading out in the morning or, better yet, a job that leaves us not just a few hours on the weekend for “freedom,” but instead presents us with the flexibility to take time off, pack the truck with camping supplies, take the kids out of school, and head for the great outdoors where we’ll be fishing in the morning and roasting what we catch in the evening.
Let’s look at a couple of the perks that this kind of happy lifestyle possible:
First and foremost is a job that comes with a pension. The stress caused from living paycheck to paycheck is because there is a little squirrel in all of us that knows deep down we ought to be gathering nuts for the winter.
For winter is coming. It is inevitable.
When our job provides us with a robust package to save toward retirement we start to see savings add up, and all that stress that came from missing a nest egg goes flying out the window. Goodbye. Good riddance!
Next comes the nest itself. Let’s not overlook it because we even more than the birds need a good one. We love our families and we know they deserve the best. So when we can’t provide a home for them it doesn’t just cause us stress, it causes our spouse stress, our children stress and this only compiles other problems.
So important is a home to call one’s own that so many families go into extreme debt to purchase one and only make problems worse. Happily, there are good jobs that provide a modern residence without taking on any debt, so you don’t have to spend your time off worrying whether or not you will have enough income to cover next-month’s mortgage. Spend the time instead buying some meat and seasoning, inviting friends and the extended family over to your house in the afternoon, and having a barbeque late into the evening. Let the kids roast marshmallows and chase fireflies.
The next perk is the paid vacation. All work and no play makes us miserable, taking a position with a company that provides flexible scheduling allows for plenty of family time. When the company offers vacation packages, it provides those wonderful opportunities for families to spend valuable extended periods of time with each other to get to know each other better in an exciting new environment, such as on a beautiful island or in the mountains in a huge log cabin.
But wait, that’s not all! We’re just getting started.
It isn’t just your mortgage that weighs you down sapping expenses that could be being put to so much better use. We have doctor bills, phone bills, car bills. Happily, there are several positions that are compensated not just by a great income and the above mentioned benefits, but many others.
Here are some of the other benefits that good positions offer
Enjoy a cutting-edge phone with an unlimited Internet package
A couple key benefits that relieve stress and worry are when the company provides you with a state-of-the-art phone and a car that represents you and the company.
Let’s face it, people judge us based not only on how we dress, but what we drive. A good company wants its people to be able to always put their best foot forward and that’s why they offer a company car.
The world is literally designed to need a car to traverse it, that’s why that big car bill causes so much anxiety, we rightly think, if my car breaks down and I don’t have the money to fix it, or if I don’t have the money for insurance, how will me and my family survive? When your company provides you with a luxury vehicle, instead of a headache to worry about, your car becomes just one more aspect about your lifestyle that you can be proud of.
Of course, it is not just our scheduled bills that create stress, more often it is the fact that after paying all of our scheduled bills there is nothing left over to pay for emergency expenses that come up. And that’s why a good job offers social indemnity. You shouldn't have to worry about going into debt, or worse, going bankrupt, because life deals you a blow. After all, in the game of life, we are all routinely dealt blows and this is why a good job provides financial support to see you through the hard times.
Last but not least, we all want to go somewhere in life. And no I don’t mean leaving your driveway to go to work, maybe hitting a fast food joint on the way back, and then, yahoo, parking the car in your front yard and calling it a night. I mean you want to get somewhere mentally, physically, financially, and careerwise. A good company offers jobs with advancement opportunities that reward your growth and help you reach the levels of achievement that you desire.
Your job shouldn’t just be a way to get through life, it should offer what you need to thrive in life
With the right job and the right perks, you can have everything that you want in life. You and your family can be happy and you can contribute to the happiness of others.
There are several jobs offering these opportunities, such as web developer, graphic designer, sales manager, and so many others. With so many opportunities to achieve what you want in life, there is no reason not to jump on one of them and start living the life you deserve.
