There are millions of people that do the same old routine every single week making the same amount of money come time for payday, working a job that they don’t even like.
Then there are those that do actually love their jobs but there are several things that they have no control of.
They can’t work when they want, where they want, and who they want to work with.
I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but that my friend is how it is and there’s not much you can do about it.
There’s not much you can do, but there is a solution for those of you who are willing to make it happen.
We All Have to Make a Living, Why Not Enjoy Doing it?
“You have to work at it”
“You need to dream big”
I think we’ve heard all the sayings and motivational quotes to the point where it gets a little redundant.
We see them all over the place and even save them for a reminder or to show our friends how big we’re actually DREAMING.
Then nothing happens and you find another unbelievably awesome quote that you find, but once again, it really serves no purpose.
99% of people that post all kinds of quotes about success are actually doing nothing but dreaming.
They wake up, go to work, and repeat the same routine for many years to come but continue to dream and share these quotes.
This is also the same exact reason that only 1% of all dreamers succeed, while the rest struggle just to make ends meet.
Why you might ask?
No One Takes Action
Anyone can post a quote.
Anyone can get motivated for the whole 1 second it took to read that quote, but that’s about where things stop.
If you want to work for yourself and be your own boss, you need to take some action.
Not just action, but something extraordinary and it needs to break you out of your comfort zone.
If something seems like it’s too easy and you aren’t seeing results, then guess what?
It’s probably not going to get you anywhere.
You Just Don’t Know How
Another reason why people can’t live a life most people only dream of is well, because they just don’t know how to get there.
Most “successful” people make it seem so easy to do things because to be honest, it really is.
You have your traditional businesses and then you have an online business.
Whatever route you plan to take, that is exactly how you will kick that 9-5 to the curb.
Trust me, I never saw myself doing business, but thanks to a site called the Wealthy Affiliate, I guess you can say that I’m a businessman.
Not your traditional business, but one that allows you to work where you want, when you want.
So yes, it is definitely possible to do something you love, even if you want to do some traveling.
Dream Big, Realistically Big
I have a whole post dedicated to this topic and you can read that here.
I mention this a lot as I can only stress this enough for you to get to where you want to be.
Almost everyone that dreams will do nothing but dream.
The way I made my so called dreams come true was of course have something to chase.
I chose the dream of having more time with my kids and being able to support my family in the process.
I started by using the right program and then I set some goals.
I set a goal of making just a single $1 online and started there.
Then it went to $1k, and I’m sure you see the pattern.
Every month I made it a goal of mine to constantly improve my business and most importantly myself.
Always grow, always learn, and always apply that new found knowledge.
Quit posting quotes.
Quit posting them unless you plan on taking some serious action.
Set goals, put in the work, and always remember why you’re doing what you do in the first place.
I also know that you have heard everything in the book about not letting anyone stand in your way, but you really need to live by that.
Keep all negative people away from your dreams and you will do just fine.
If someone tells you that you can’t do it, use that as fuel and do me a favor.
Prove them wrong.
Don’t do it just to prove them wrong, but do it for yourself and what YOU want to do.
Wake up every single day and stay out of your comfort zone or you my friend will never get to live on your own terms doing something you actually like doing.
Your work will payoff no matter what, so keep moving forward and don’t ever look back.
