Do you have a dream today? Can you see yourself in one year, three years, ten years?
Far from some pie-in-the-sky hype, dreams are the currency of the Internet.
Many reading these words right now dream of quitting their job and working at home. Some dream of having a home of their own. Some don’t dream any more.
My friend, your dream is your roadmap. Without it how will you know where you are going?
Recent events have driven home the fact that life is short indeed. Too short to spend it working at a job we don’t love.
Listen to these words by Brian Tracy…
“All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose”. – Brian Tracy
If you were my brother or sister, this is what I would say to you.
You must have a dream to make a dream come true.
And you must never surrender your dream.
If you are like most people you will spend more time working than doing any other activity. Yet, many don’t like their work.
Can you do what you love for a living? Can you find the joy that comes when you WANT to go to work? Here’s how to find out.
Allow me to share with you the five steps I used to make my dream come true on the Internet. And let me encourage you to take these steps in your life today. Time is fleeting. Begin now.
- Realize that the Internet really has changed things. Jobs exist today that didn’t five years ago.
- Know yourself. What do you REALLY want? Spend some time with yourself and wave the magic wand. If you could do anything, if money wasn’t a factor, what would you do? Keep asking until you find an answer.
- Research your answers. You will be shocked to discover the career possibilities online. Pick your favorite search engine, start a bookmark folder just for this, and find everything you can about your passion.
- Be willing to start small. You may only be able to commit a few hours at night to your new field because you have to feed the family. That’s OK. Time is your ally. And time will prove if your idea will work.
Jobs like being a virtual assistant, a net researcher, or doing graphic art for e-Books exist today because of innovative thinkers who found their passion. Find your passion. Don’t stop until you find (or create) that type of work that both makes you happy and pays the bills. Who knows, YOU might be the innovator who creates the next online industry.
Winston Churchill said “The nose of the bulldog has been slanted backward so it can breathe without letting go.”
When it comes to our dreams we need to be like the bulldog. We must never surrender our dreams.
