So, I got another side gig-low paying, but more money coming in so that’s good. As I was sitting through video training today, all I could think of was: Why am I sitting here? Why am I listening to this? The owner is fantastic-peppy and cute and I like her, but I was bored and uninterested in everything she had to say. She is so excited and passionate because it is her company, but the thoughts running through my head constantly came back to one central theme- what am I doing here?
I am sure that many people have felt this way. You may work for a great boss or company, but the feeling that you could and should be doing more has probably crept into your mind. Look at the guys who started Google, or Amazon’s founder. They had an idea, albeit a fantastic one, but they went for it.
They stepped out on faith and just did it! I don’t know if not stepping out on the narrow ledge of uncertainty is because people lack confidence or have fear. But they are equally debilitating!
So how do we become the gurus? The ones leading a seminar, marketing the next big thing or discovering a company with virtually no overhead or physical product (Uber/Air BnB)?
These are ideas that may help you to realize your dream(s):
*Write Down Goals with Attainable Deadlines (start small and work up)
*Take Action No Matter How Small (get a business address)
*Buy A Domain Name (will make it feel official)
*Spend an Allotted Amount of Time on Your Business (make it a priority in your schedule)
*Consider Yourself the Person You Desire to Be (if you want to be a professional writer, then say that you are)
*Stop Reading This and Get Started or Keep Working!! (no, seriously, no time like the present!)
I have made it through the list. Kind of. I have the address, the domain name, I am creating almost everyday. I still don’t have the LLC, but that is next. I am not where I want to be, but I am trying. It isn’t coming fast enough because I don’t have as many hours to dedicate to it as I would like because I still have to work. But I am at least working towards my dreams. Though the race is slow, I am for the first time, dedicated towards being the person I am destined to be.
I wish you all well in all that you desire…
