Think about it. What do you have to lose?
The majority of us (Gen X, Y) have spent most of our adult lives working for someone else—building someone else’s brand and often at the cost of our own happiness and financial security.
Imagine what life could have looked like if we’d spent those ten or twenty years honing our craft and investing in our own initiatives. The financial ceiling would have been unlimited. It really would.
The purpose of this post is to bring to your awareness that YOU have what it takes to live life on your own terms. If you choose to, you can earn more money than you’ve ever earned. You can become an influencer or go-to-person as it relates to your niche. If you choose to, you no longer have to punch a timecard for an employer who sees and treats you as a disposable commodity. You can build your own brand and command any salary you desire.
Even as I am writing this post, I can’t help but think about the many people who will read this article, yet second guess their inherent value and capacity for unparalleled success. Whatever it is you desire, you can have it. The key, however, is to desire what you desire so badly that you are willing to put in the time and work until that desire materializes into the success you’ve always imagined.
Here is what is most interesting about pursuing your own objectives and goals. You only have to be right once! That book you have been thinking about writing, perhaps that’s the best-seller that will give you the financial security and freedom of time you’ve been dreaming of. That idea that has been lingering in your mind, why not take time to explore its viability. Strike while the iron is hot. That is, avoid waiting and act on an opportunity while favorable conditions exist.
Remember, success will only come to you when you are mentally and emotionally prepared to receive it. So whatever you do, take time daily to give yourself an opportunity to win—to win BIG! The future is yours for the taking.
