I need a new career – Is this something you have asked yourself before?
I am sure we have all felt it from one time to another, lost. Just when we think we have grips on life somehow something can change to take that feeling away. So there we go again trying to figure it all out again.
When this happens you start reflecting and doubting if what you are doing is actually getting you closer to you “Why”. You start asking yourself questions like;
Am I doing the job I love?
Do I have what it takes to become more than an employee at this company to earn more income?
Is this for me?
Is this job making me feel empty?
I have felt these and maybe these are the natural progression of self development because I can tell you those questions come up more frequently as you start to work on yourself (I suggest listening to audios or reading for an hour a day).
I felt like this when I younger and felt I was trapped when I was working for a cable company like it was just eating away my soul. At that point is where I knew that job was not something I wanted to do until I retired (had set a goal to retire at 45). I just knew something had to change because I felt my soul was dying something had to change.
After some soul searching and carving away deeper and deeper I established my why. Once I discovered my why and had built my three sources of income I quit my job.
Let me tell you even though I had my income sources turned on it was still the scariest moment of my life. We are raised to graduate college, get a job with good benefits and retire there so I was breaking the mold. My dad still to this day always asks me if I am going to ever work again and I laugh and ensure him I am not.
Well its been years and my businesses are growing but when your mission is bigger than money itself you will have nothing less than success. My wife runs a retail store in the health niche and as for myself I am in marketing. The lessons I have learned are what I want to share with others.
I believe it will give others the courage to try their goals and will help drop the learning curve by well over fifty percent.
My sole purpose in this post is to inspire you to use your head (those that want entrepreneurship), change careers and start your own business and take a lesson away from my experience.
Life Lessons Learned
1. You will be waiting all your life if your waiting for the perfect time
Are you sitting on a great idea that needs to be submitted for a patent search and your waiting for the right time? I have lost out on a LOT of good deals because I stalled or over analyzed it and lost out to others who took action. Think of it like this,,, motivation are like showers we take them daily so that is why if you become part of movement, team or start your own business it is imperative you listen to audios daily. What this does for you is inject daily inspiration, motivation and business ideas from other successful people.
I stay motivated daily and get new ideas daily for my business which as an example helped a peer make $3k last week. There are so many audios you can listen to but if your curious which ones I listen to daily here they are.
Sit back today and think to yourself if you are achieving your why and if doing what your doing will get you closer to your why if you did it for 10 more years.
2. Haters goin to hate….
It’s human nature for most when we allow the opinions of others to affect us, hold us back or even worse stop us from attempting our dream. Admit it, many people have changed their mind about something because of the opinions of others. Trust me, when I quit my job I had a lot of people definitely tell me their opinion how it was not a smart move, oh my Joe how are you going to make it, are you crazy, etc, etc.
That is where you are either mentally strong and listening and reading to your daily motivation or you are again just swayed by the opinions of others. You cannot and you will not satisfy everyone just live in the moment and continue to do best for improving yourself…. [click to continue…]
