Most people begin their home business journey as an employee moonlighting – they work at their J-O-B by day and then come home to work on their business by night. At least that’s their intention anyway…
Most folks do the first part right. Like little good obedient boys and girls, they wake up to the nasty blaring of their alarm clocks, snooze for 15 minutes, hastily brush their teeth, get dressed, skip breakfast (remember the 15 minute snooze?), so they can hurry and sit in traffic for 45 minutes before getting to work. They do this day-in day-out knowing that their J-O-B won’t EVER afford them the dreams they have.
But at night time, when it comes time to truly work on something that gives them hope, that has a chance of liberating them from their job and of achieving their financial dreams, they fall short – they find any excuse to avoid working on their businesses – the one thing that can actually help them reach their goals.
“I am too tired.”
“Survivor is on tonight.”
“I need to shower…“
Bluh bluh bluh…
So many lame excuses, so much wasted potential, so many FAILURES.
And one by one, they drop back into miserable mediocrity – back to being yet another rat in the dreaded rat race. All the while blaming the home business industry proclaiming that “it doesn’t work”. When in reality, it’s not that home business industry doesn’t work, it’s that THEY didn’t work.
How Serious Are You?
It amazes me how someone can dedicate their entire adult life to a cause that has no way to provide the type of livelihood he/she dreams about but when it comes to the thing that can actually make those dreams into reality… he/she falters?
Don’t be that someone.
Take your business seriously, be passionate about it, believe in it, and dedicate yourself to it and it will pay off for you. No successful business became successful BEFORE the owner dedicated him/herself to it.
ALL successful businesses became successful AFTER the owner became dedicated. Hear me?
Treat your business like a business, treat it like your life depended on it. Only then, after you’ve put heart and soul into it, can you expect to get anything back in return from your business.
