Hey there, its been a while since I did a post – combination of being busy, lazy and vacation.
But seriously, I just got back from a few weeks vacation in Europe, cruising the Mediterranean – that place is awesome. (except for that whole immigrant crisis -wow that’s a bummer)… but I digress; Europe was incredible.
Taking time off is really important – not only to recharge your batteries from the stresses of day to day life. But to help you really think about your priorities and what you really want to achieve – without all of the background noise.
It’s really easy to get stuck in a rut in your life. Unfortunately, it’s what happens to most people in their professional life, simply because its easier than taking risks and stepping out of your comfort zone. Even if you have that desire to be rich, or have more free time, or be able to give more to charity, or your family – it won’t happen until you take the necessary action. Don’t Settle For Ordinary, especially when greatness can be right around the corner.
Clarifying what You Want
You need to be clear about what you really want. What kind of life do you want to live? Is it one where you may be successful – but at the cost of spending 80 hours a week in the office; away from your family and the things you actually enjoy? Or do you want to have a life that gives you that balance that’s missing from most ‘successful’ people today.
In my opinion – no salary (no matter how huge it is) is worth spending 90% of your waking ours working. Not only does that not give you the time to even enjoy your money! It also means that 90% of your life is spent doing something that you may not even love!
Wouldn’t a better option be to have a business or source of income that provides you with the flexibility to work when and where you want -giving you the freedom and flexibility do the things you actually enjoy? To see your family more, enjoy your hobbies, travel etc.
Many people get as far as clarifying what they want – and stop there. They carry on with their lives, hoping and wishing that the Universe will answer their prayer and deliver a box of money with a bow on it to their front door… Unfortunately that’s not how it works.
Getting clear on what you want is critical – but its only the first step. Now is when the work begins – you need to take focused action to achieve what you want.
The first hurdle when looking for the right solution is deciding what kind of business will give you the life that you want.
In any typical brick and mortar business – there is always the potential of success which is directly influenced on how hard you work (long long hours), how much financial backing you have, how the local market is performing etc. etc. etc.
Usually brick and mortar startups have an extremely high mortality rate with over 90% failing within the first 5 years, based on historic data.
The Digital Economy
But fortunately with the ever increasing popularity of the Internet, starting a successful online business has become easier and easier to achieve. The ‘Digital Economy’ has steadily risen over the last 10 years as more and more people are purchasing their products online (Amazon, Ebay, to name a few).
This has created an opportunity for anyone to take advantage of this huge market. With the added benefits of: extremely low start-up costs compared to brick and mortar – no inventory, no office rent etc, unlimited market reach, high levels of automation etc.
The only limitation is the knowledge of how to get a online business set up, as most people coming from a regular job are intimidated by technology.
