How bad to you want your dreams to become a reality? Do you think about it all of the time? Are you distracted by thoughts and visions of seeing yourself actually doing what you desire? How bad do you want it? When it comes to having goals in life and doing things that make us happy, the want is there but the actions are lacking. We want it so much but our feet are stuck. Why? The number one reason is fear but the main reasons is ourselves. We hold ourselves back. We will not give ourselves enough credit or love. When you do not believe in yourself, how can others? How can someone else take you serious if you do not? Having bad thoughts about yourself stops you from becoming the greatest that you can be. Why do you think bad about yourself so much? Don't you love yourself? If your thoughts are your own to control then why make them into something that will only hurt you? Life is hard enough to deal with, so why not be the one to make it easier on yourself?
When it comes to having passions and dreams, you have all of the fire and drive, and ambition and wish. But something is causing you to stop from even taking the first step. Until you know what that is, all you are doing is just thinking pretty. You are only having good thoughts that make you happy long enough until life is back into play and it is back to reality. But, why just think pretty? Why not actually live the life you want to? It sounds better. You have to get over your obstacles and yourself and actually believe that you can do it. Yes it will be hard, yes it will hurt, yes you may even fail and not be a success the first one thousand times, but at least you kept trying and you took the first step, so you know what comes after that first step? The next one. Working from home seems to always be a dream, a desire so deep, but it is also something many people are talked out of easily. From themselves and a lot from others. Because people do not understand the working from home journey, they don't have anything positive to say about it. To most it is just a "waste of time." But is it a waste of time to you?
Listening to others can come with both pros and cons. You can get some really helpful advice and then you can get some really negative mess. Which will you choose to listen to? For the longest of time I wanted to work from home and when I told those closest to me, I did not get the response that I thought I would. I was hurt. I thought they would be happy for me, but they looked at it as a waste of my time. Why? Because the money wasn't on a weekly, bi-weekly basis, it wasn't coming from an employer or corporation, it was me sitting on my computer and to them that was not productive. "Why not get a real job and quit playing around." What? a real job? so what I do is not considered to be real? huh? I have never heard of this before and it was just an amazing thing to hear, how can making money not be real? so, because it was not coming from any employers it was considered to not be real? WOW! that is crazy to me.
I felt what I did from home was real because I could really spend the money to buy what I needed, that money was real enough to be spent. When I really needed something I could go to the store with my paypal card and get what I needed, and guess what? the cashier did not look at me before I completed my transaction and ask " Is the money on this card from a real job?" No they completed the transaction because all the machine needs to know is if you can afford to pay for the merchandise. My rent was paid with this money, the landlord did not say to me " Well we only accept money from real jobs." No, they accepted it for the amount given. So, what is this "real job" that they speak of? Where is it? I always thought that if you received money for doing something and if what you were doing was legal then you were doing something real, was I wrong? Did I miss something? Making money has become something so mistreated that now, people actually believe if you are not working through a corporation, and if you are not leaving your house to clock into a job, then no you do not have a real job. It it quite mind blowing to me. But if you want to be a success in your passions and your goals, then you have to learn to block out all of that mess and negative garbage and focus to get where you want to go. Otherwise you will stay in the same place, doing the same thing, always having the same results and aren't you tired of doing the same? I know I am. That is why no matter what I will not give up. Yeah, they can say what they want and have their opinions about it all but only I know the truth and what my desires and passions really are. So, let them talk and keep it moving. At the end of the day, it is your life, right?
