Lifestyle Dream", then this post is for you.
Firstly, it exists, and anyone can live the so-called Internet
Lifestyle Dream... IF, and only if you work like a horse. (Or
create a sustainable business that functions without you)
The concept of "mini-retirements" come into mind. Popularized
by Tim Ferris, mini-retirements is supposed to replace the
erroneous concept of retirements.
All of us are taught to make tons of money, and then cut away
the job and move on in life to enjoy your harvest. I personally
agree with Tim that it's all BS.
Most people work like a horse until they're over 50 to 60, and
then plan for retirement. How much can you really enjoy in life
when problems like time, health and everything else creeps in?

- Set down clear income goals for you to work for,

- Resign yourself to fate when something doesn't work, and
move on to the next solution? Like, oh it's the information

- Shift faults to something/someone else whenever something
doesn't work the way you expected it to be?
- Erroneously think that penetrating big markets as a major
player is an easy task?
Treat your business like a business. It's serious, and it's not
something that you play around with. It concerns your bread
Stop looking for those one-button push stuff, or those easy
ways out. If you want something, then you need to strategize
and work your way towards it.
Don't react to everything that comes in your way. Be in control.
Be the one that is there at the top of your business. A boss.
Think about whether you really need stuff right at THAT moment.
If you don't, don't get it if it doesn't have an immediate benefit
to you at that present time.
I guess that's just what I wanted to say...
