Starting an online business sounds awesome! Ditching the 9 to 5 for the freedom to travel, making your own schedule, and getting paid to do what you love! That would be absolutely amazing, but how likely is that really?
Well, it’s certainly possible… I mean, other people have definitely done this, but it’s not going to be a walk in the park. It takes a lot of work, it’s kinda risky, and can be super stressful at times!
Don't let the headlines fool you, this is something you will really have to work for. You have to want it more than anything else in the world! If that's the case for you, and your willing to step out of your comfort zone into the land of the unknown, this is for you. You were born for this, so what are you waiting for?
Just thinking about it gives you a sense of excitement. The chill down your spine, the vivid thoughts of happiness mixed with the slight underlying sense of anxiety. Acknowledge it! Recognize this, not as fear, but as the thrill you are secretly obsessed with! The rollercoaster feeling that we all get while climbing to the peak, remember it always, and chase that!
You’re still holding yourself back… The thoughts running through your head. You know they're excuses. This isn't your fault though, we naturally seek a sense of balance. Recognizing this process is the key to your success. You can have the life that you want, as long as you are willing to work for it.
“But I have bills to pay and responsibilities that I can’t just drop!”
Well, the good news is… You don’t have to. You can go buy a scratch off ticket without having to drop your whole life savings in, right? This really isn't that much different!
Allow me to introduce you to the Side Hustle. Your new best friend! Continue doing what you do everyday. You know the grocery shopping, the laundry, chores that you didn't think about until after you tried to sit down to get stuff done.
Just dedicate 30 minutes a day. Most people will spend this watching tv, randomly shopping when they don't need anything, or scrolling through instagram for no reason. That 30 mins a day is more than just a goal though, it’s a promise to yourself. This time is sacred, the savings account to help you reach your future happiness. You would be surprised what you can accomplish with just that 30 mins a day. Trust me, it adds up quickly!
( 30 mins /day ) x ( 365 days /year ) == ( 10,950 mins /year )
( 182.5 hrs /year )
This is nearly 10% of the time that someone will spend throughout the year … at a full time job!
Don't believe me? Do the math… a full time job is ≈ 40(hrs /week)
If you subscribe to Pareto’s Principle, where 80% of the result stems from 20% of the action, step it up to an hour/day! We don’t frown on over achievement. You got GOALS!
This is your dream, CHASE IT!
