Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Instead, lick it, and suck on it lovingly, even if it’s stained with shit. If you don’t suck it, you won’t be fed.
This expression really illustrates how soul crushing the 9-to-5 is. You can’t object to whatever is paying your bills or your mortgage. You got to kiss ass. You got to kneel down and submit just like the slave you are.
But what if, instead, the hands that feed you are rivers of cash from passive income? What if you lived off dividends from shares, rent from real estate, interest from bonds, revenue from ebooks?
If hands offer you food, then eat, and if those hands abuse you, you are free to refuse their feed.
You can also bite back.
