Passive Income Is a Myth
by Patrick Roberts  
12/12/2007 / Career


Passive income is money that a person collects without having to work for it. This is many people's dream. I am confident that I will discover such a restful work someday... sometime after I've departed from this world.

Active men load the internet full of lies about passive income. These same men worked long and hard for their online exposure so they might learn the secret of capitalizing on this weakness, which is that people want to obtain money without having to work.

Men who understand that work is necessary labor long and hard to sell the myth of passive income to other people who wish they could avoid work. Passive income is a lie that active men sell to loose wallets.

A man might pack ten years of work into a five year time period so that he might coast for the next five years on the momentum of that initial energy spurt. But that man still had to endure ten years of work; it will take him five years to recover from such a traumatic endeavor.

No matter what our occupation or goals, any meaningful success must be obtained through determination and hard work. Even seemingly privileged people obtained their positions in life either through their or their ancestor's sweat.

We have to work for every meaningful success. It's the difficulty of work that makes us appreciate our successes. This applies to spiritual as well as worldly success. Only through discipline can Christ-followers overcome their daily trials in this world. The same thing goes for worldly work. The hardships of work are what keep us humble. The difficulty of worldly work should eventually inspire people to seek rest in Christ.

Passive income is a myth because money is valuable to everyone. Any commodity that is sought by everyone is not easily obtained. It makes sense that the most cunning, determined people accumulate more money than everyone else.

We are naturally enslaved the love of money. Apart from God's spiritual redirection we would perish in the pursuit of money. But we will find freedom from this slavery in Christ. The cure for our shallow fixation is to learn about imperishable, heavenly riches.

Adam's rebellion sentenced him to a lifetime of sweat and labor. Although he had leisurely work in the garden, he chose for some reason to do things the hard way. We carry on this tradition now by continuing to rebel against God. God cursed humanity and the whole earth because of sin, this is true, but we uphold this curse by following in our fleshly father's footsteps, always doing things the hard way.
