Enjoy life to the fullest

Life is a precious opportunity to be thankful. Thankful for the life we have, regardless of our struggles. Thankful for the time we get to spend with our loved ones, and to cherish all the experiences lived together.

Today’s world is full of disappointments, and it’s no wonder that a lot of people face the inevitable decision to spend most of the day working to be able to provide the basic things for their family. They work hard day in and day out, with the illusion that after 30+ years of hard work they will have saved enough to “enjoy life”.

Oh boy! How has that worked out?

Millions of people dying because of the illness acquired during their hard-working days. May of them with no access to basic medical care or without the means to buy the cheapest medicines.

It’s a brutal reality. It cannot be sugar-coated.

The promises of our family and teachers that we should study hard, get a job, work for 30 or more years, save money, and enjoy life in our late years has… just vanished.

The new world is different, and requires a different mindset, a different approach, a different way of working.

Regardless of your financial goals, the knowledge and information inside your brain can be your greatest asset. And the platform to produce results with that information is a couple of clicks away. The internet is the best option to find those who relate to you and your message. All around the world there are people waiting to hear from you, to connect with you and to engage with you.

Are you ready? Or are you doubtful, skeptical? It’s not your fault. You have been taught to follow the rules… rules created a long time ago, for people who don’t want people like you or me to change. Because the way things are is beneficial for some people, but not for the rest of us. They want to keep everything to themselves, while we keep working for a minimum fare and keep spending it all, so it goes back to their big pockets.

Is up to you to keep living with an old mindset, with an old mentality, with an old set of results. Remember that insanity is trying got get different results by repeating the same process over and over.

I have decided to take a different path because we are living in different times. Is undeniable that many jobs are gone, many others will come back being different, and only some people will be able to get them. Those who are getting ready, adapting, redefining themselves.

In a sarcastic cartoon there’s a speaker asking this question to the audience: “Who wants change?”. Everybody in the crowd raised their hands. Then he proceeded to ask: “Who wants to change?”. All hands went down immediately.

Those questions apply to you and me.

What are your answers?

It only takes a small step to find out if you’re ready to change your mindset, your way of getting started in the online business, to prepare yourself to create income using your knowledge and the internet. To be financially free and to control the amount of time you spend working versus the time you spend with your family.

Denying the current state of things comes with a hard lesson. A lesson that in the past caused a lot of people to miss out the great opportunities when big change happened.

It’s worth a try. It definitively was for me.

5 [Reasons] Excuses that Keep Us from Being an Entrepreneur

You work hard during 40 or more hours per week; you deliver your highest quality in everything you do. However, you don’t feel appreciated, you don’t receive the promotions you think you deserve, and in the worst case, you are deemed disposable, your job is terminated and your time an effort spent in the company is a total waste.

Or maybe you’re still in a job, but the conditions and the stress you’re exposed to are taking a huge toll on your personal life.

It’s not your fault. This is just the result of system that was part of your upbringing, which taught you that you are supposed to walk a straight and pre-defined path: go to school, get good grades, don’t deviate from what the book says and find a job and keep it for the next 30(?) years and then retire and enjoy life.

But… where are the jobs? Where is the security? Where is the American Dream? Is life fully enjoyable after 60 or 70?

The conditioning of the educational system puts most of us at odds in these changing times, where all the promises from the past have evaporated like an ice cube hitting a red-hot surface. Industries and markets are changing faster than the school curricula; it’s impossible for them to keep up.

That’s why… now it’s time for you to start “deviating” from what the traditional books say. And for that it’s necessary to get rid of the next five reasons excuses that keep you from being an entrepreneur:

 

Employee Mindset

“Be creative, but don’t be weird, don’t be different”. We have been conditioned to bow our heads and just follow instructions. That’s considered normal… to follow the crowd, to wait for things to happen, to have someone else dictate your fate. But entrepreneurship requires to unlearn this way of thinking and rewire your mind, so you don’t keep waiting for things to happen, for the economy to bounce back, or for the jobs to come back. The job of your dreams exists only in your head, which means you need to create it. You are capable of great things, but it’s only up to you to decide to switch from a victim mentality to a winner mentality.

Beware, the road to success is filled with challenges, but the new mindset will help you conquer any obstacles and to keep grinding until you reap the fruits of your efforts without depending on employment (or unemployment).

 

Lack of Time

Life gets busy, and the workplace keeps demanding more and more from us. Today it is easy to check your email from your phone, even from your wristwatch, which triggers the need of getting online to address the potential request that could be the key to keep your job. Again, it’s not your fault. It’s just too much pressure. And at this point it becomes even more critical to consider starting an online business.

“What?” – you say. “I’m burning the midnight oil as it is!”

One thing is certain: the demand for your time will not decrease when it comes to an employment. It will keep growing. And while becoming an entrepreneur and keeping a job seems like trying to face a tsunami, the advantage is that once you get started, it becomes easier, and the time spent in growing your business will be less over time, and once you are comfortable with the income you are achieving, you can fire your boss and hire yourself full time. Yes, the time required to get started is considerable, but the prize is… well… priceless!

 

I don’t know where to begin!

That’s why you’re here! It’s the same process for a baby to start walking. He has no idea what he’s doing, but getting started, while difficult in the beginning, it becomes easier after some time. So, start with baby steps. Do basic research, consume free online content, read books about entrepreneurship, follow blogs, podcasts, subscribe to newsletters to receive information.

After you use the basic information to decide if this is path you want to follow, decide on a mentor that can guide you on your journey. Find a person that has implemented a successful business online and be coachable. Yes, ask a lot of questions, but also trust the process. Remember, hard work and patience will always lead to good results!

 

I don’t have money to get started

A lot of us have been there, no surprise. After all, you would not be reading this if you were already wealthy. But the key difference between winners and losers is not having resources (money), but instead being resourceful. This includes coming up with creative ways to access financial resources to get the ball rolling. It’s always difficult to reach out to family or friends to come up with an investment, but that’s what being an entrepreneur sometimes mean, to convince others that our business plan is solid and that will be successful. Other resources can be used, like credit cards, loans or savings. Here you need to assess your risk and be mindful that your business needs to start producing results to cover the initial money you used. This puts more pressure on you, but the difference is that the end result will be fulfilling and totally worth it!

Remember, if you’re resourceful, you will make it happen!

 

I’m not sure if I can succeed, it’s too risky

Same as life. Same as your job. Same as every time you drive your car. Risk is part of any business. Without risk there’s no merit because anybody could do it. Any known entrepreneur will validate this… that risk is always an inherent component of any enterprise.

Many businesses will fail. But the main reason for failure is the lack of adaptability and resiliency to keep going while others stop, to keep learning while others thing that there’s nothing more to learn, to look at the business as a living organism that produces value, as opposed to think of it as a cash machine.

In the digital era we don’t need to produce physical products. We live in times where knowledge is the new currency. It’s the most valuable asset that a person can produce. And it’s right there, between your ears. Your brain contains knowledge that would allow you to write thousands of books. And that’s how you succeed.

So, what’s stopping you from getting started?
