I think everyone can agree that the world is changing. Nothing makes it more noticeable than your mother telling you that with one, sometimes two jobs, she could have made a decent living when she was at your place in life. And nowadays, more often than not, one has to have three. Just to get out on their own. People are finding it harder and harder to make things work, much less do the things they want.
I think that is a big reason why so many people are trying to find other ways to make a living. Bring in alternate means of income. People have been turning to ebay, etsy--blogging, affiliate marketing, network marketing. More and more people are using creative means online just to make their extra cash, even to make it their fulltime job. It's an old saying that necessity is the mother of invention. Seeing what people come up with to make their goals possible is incredible. It's a changing world--it's clear that it's fast becoming very different to what was 20 years ago. Already is.
Looking at the way things are, one needs to assess what they truly want from life, and make a decision on how they need to adjust to meet those goals. It'll take growth, experimentation, and guts--a lot of guts. And flexibility. But that's the adventure of it. Discovering what's possible is certainly a ride. And the successes along the way certainly give you a big smile at the end of the day. A taste of triumph, until you look around and realize that you've actually made it.
My goal is build up my base so that I can travel, write, and pay for film school. I'm working in network marketing and am so grateful for the community of other independent people striving for financial freedom from the ease of their own home, so they have the time to do what they love--the thing in which they'll give something back to the world.
I write, have been published; I have my own jewelry shop, Transcendence Designs; and I'm part of the team with Ipas2 and EmpowerNetwork. These things together, I am confident that I will meet my goals by the end of next year. Perhaps even this year! (I like to leave a good margin).
I want to encourage you to do the same. Take your life and livelihood into your own hands. Claim your independence and work toward your goals. Freedom comes to those who fight for it. Who wants to stay in the rut of the everyday, slaving for a few bucks an hour, when other things are possible?
Others are traveling. Others are supporting their family with these new ways. They're giving up having a boss and a minimum wage for freedom and the time to do what matters to them.
What will you choose?
I'll be writing more about the different ways people are using to meet their goals, and share what I learn!
