Simple as it sounds, tougher than we think.
I beg to differ, I think that for most, "ACTION is the hardest thing to do, that's why many just THINK about it."
For many, the lack of money is a fear which prevents them from quitting their jobs to pursue their business. For those in Internet Marketing, IM, the fear is even greater as it is a niche which 'most' people are not convinced that a decent income could be made and twice the fear is felt when the income is not consistent because of the pure number of competitors in this field.
Perhaps too many are engrossed in teaching others how to make money in the "make money online" niche that they forgot that if they put their internet marketing skills in other fields, they would have an enhanced advantage.
An example is Amazon, the top bestsellers are made up of the BEST writers and the BEST marketers. ( We read about this before, haven't we?)
I imagine that Robert Kiyosaki's books (Rich Dad Poor Dad) are not the best written literature or novels in the top sellers but it consistently is in the top because it is well written for the readers.
Some say that it makes them learn something and feel good that their knowledge about passive income and the idea of assets vs liabilities have improved due to reading his books. Complicated subjects taught in a simple manner.
Marketers who take action are some of the most valuable assets any company could have. Of course, when they leave, they often become that very company's greatest competitor. In this case of self sabotage, what other choice is there?
Making money is part of the fuel which can help us accelerate our journey towards a more carefree life, with less worries about the next meal and meals to come.
But feeding our body is not all there is to life, we have our dreams to fulfill and making a decent amount of money is part of the part and parcel of fueling our dreams.
A peaceful, happy and fruitful life without worries for healthcare due to lack of money, something most of us are working towards for.
Of course, it depends on how we use it. Some people can live with a 4 digit monthly income, for others, even a 7 digit monthly income is not enough to cover their expenses.
Money making is a skill which requires focus. Sometimes we take other important factors like peacefulness, happiness, joyfulness and good health for granted. If any of these big 4 gets affected, our focus in money making hovers as well. That is perhaps why many are keen in gaining passive and automated income.
Peacefulness, happiness, joyfulness and good health. That is where we start and will wish to be near the end of our lives. In between, we will slot in our dreams to become who we want to become to define who we are.
Because at the start and end of our lives, we will be more or less the same. We came into this world with nothing on our name and shall leave this world having our name mean something.
That something is made up of what we have chosen to be in our lives. The love we have chose to give and receive, the career we decided to embark on for most of our working hours, the friends and people we chose to have our times together with and the kind of life we have decided to create.
And today, I looked at my schedule for the next two months, it is almost packed to the brim daily and even more is to come. Stressed?
Yes and even more exciting. I know what I am fighting for and I will give it UPS, not give it up. Having seen some of the very best 1st class business people at work who are also some of the most well financially rewarded, I know I am still far from them and will work towards that league. Step by step. Ups and ups."
Here's a little story to warm your heart.
One of the Most Heart Warming Thank Yous I have ever received ( by MaynasEric Chua)
I was at a coffeshop around evening getting some snacks when I helped a middle aged lady from Philippines translate from English to Chinese to the coffee shop assistant to order some snacks which might have been new to her like carrot cake, hock kway and Malay kway. What was memorable to me was how she thanked me, "I will pray for your blessings and I'm sure you will succeed in your life."
I may never know who you are but thank you for one of the most meaningful thank you I had in my life which made my day thank you too
If I had stood there, not helping, nothing would have happened, life will be as normal.
Taking a small action in helping, I received a blessing and thank you which warmed my heart, priceless.
Similarly, if we stood here, not doing anything, nothing would have happened, life will be as normal.
Taking a small action in selling something, trying to by taking action, chances are that you should make some income, if you have done well, perhaps a fortune.
Life is as it is, taking action.
Have a good week ahead my friends.
