Going To Another Country
That can happen. You're living in your own country. You're
working like hell. But you keep on struggling. Nothing changes.
No big money.
What can you do? Stay where you are and keep on working? Sure.
You can. And with it you'll get real frustrated. You won't live
Is there an alternative? You bet there is. Go to another
country. And there start all over again. Get your life in order
I know. That's difficult. It's difficult to decide to leave you
own country and go to another country. You're scared to go away.
You seriously think about going to another country. And then you
come up with a lot of reasons why you can't do that. Why you
have to stay.
You're thinking about your family, about the house you bought,
or maybe about the car you have. Must you leave that all behind?
And then what's going to happen to you when you are in that
other country? Can you live there or must you be afraid of
gangster and other criminals?
And then there is your job. You're very much frustrated. But
you've got such a good job. You've been in that job for many
Don't think. Just go away. Of course you find a lot of reasons
why you can't go away. That's a human nature. But there is no
reason for staying.
Think about it. There is only one good reason. And that reason
tells you to go away. You are fed up. You're frustrated. You
want to change that.
Is it difficult to go away? Do you need a lot of money to go
away? Must you make a lot of preparations to go away? No, no, no.
It's not difficult to go away. Just step on a plane and fly to
that other country. You arrive in that other country and have a
Do you need a lot of money? That depends on the country you
pick. But in most countries you come a long way with $ 300.
How long do you want to stay in that country? Six months? So for
staying there six months you only need $ 1,800. That's not much.
What preparations? Your house will not run away. Your car stays
there. What is there to prepare? Insurances? Forget about them.
The only thing you must do is decide to what country you want to
go. This is an advice I can give to you. Find a country
different from your country.
Suppose you're living in the West. Then go to a developing
country. That's what you can do still at home. Find a good
Find a good developing country where you can find a decent job.
And where the standard of living is good. Go to that country.
Have a plan. You go to that country. At first you look around.
You plan to stay there maybe six months. Go back to your own
country after six months.
In your own country you can find a temporary job. There you can
make some money. When you've got enough money then go again to
Look further in that country. See what you can do. See whether
you can find a job. See whether you can make a living there.
You have got a job in your own country. You've got a talent. Use
that job, use that talent. And find a way to use it in that
Believe me. That's all that it takes. Go to that other country.
Find a job there. You will find a job there. And stay there.
Be happy in that other country. Don't make the same mistakes you
made in your own country. In that other country you know how to
This guy went to another country. And he's doing very well. He's
doing even better than in his own country. Much better.
I was living in Holland. I had a job I didn't like. I didn't
really make big money. I was looking for another job.
I know a lot about AutoCAD. I'm very good at programming in
AutoLISP. I was looking for a job where I could use that talent.
But in Holland I couldn't find such a job. Maybe I was looking
hard enough. Maybe I should have been more aggressive in my job
Anyway. I had enough of Holland. I stepped on the4 plane and I
flew to the Far East. I was in Indonesia, in Thailand, and now
I'm in Malaysia.
I live in Kuala Lumpur. I married a very sweet lady. I Bought an
apartment here. I bought a new car. I've got a job as an
Now my life is much better then my life as it was in Holland.
Now I do what I always wanted to do. Now I have the job I like
Sure. The pay here is much lower than in Holland. Here I get
maybe a third of what I would get in Holland. But who cares.
It's all about what you can do with the money you get. That's a
lot more than in Holland with the money I get there.
In Holland how much interest do you pay on a mortgage? Is it
eight percent? Is it even more? Here you only pay an interest of
I bought a car. I pay the car in installments. How much interest
do you think I pay? You think 15%? Or more? No. Here you only
And then the price of a car here. I bought a new car for less
than $ 14,000. The same car would cost at least $ 30,000 in
OK. I must be honest. There is a disadvantage to working in
Malaysia. In Holland they talk about working 36 hours a week.
Here they are working five and a half days a week. Here they
work 45 hours a week. But if you like the job you're doing then
that's no big deal.
Yes sir. Go to another country if you don't like the way things
are in your own country. Look around and find a place to stay.
As I went to South East Asia I wasn't thinking of going to
Malaysia. I was only thinking of going to a developing country.
In a developing country you can do a lot with your money from
the West. But then you also want to make a living there.
I looked around and decided for Malaysia. Malaysia is the best
country around here. And I started working with AutoCAD.
I think I came to the right country. Here they don't know too
much about AutoCAD. So I can do a lot for companies here.
I think you can do the same. Step on a plane and fly away to
another country if you don't like your own country no more.
Have a talent and use that talent. Start working with your
talent and then find a job. Make plans and get started. Get a
