Dumb Lies - I Will Never Be the Leader I Want to Be
Lies and Fears Just Love to Take Control of Your Life. The lies of "I'll never be the leader that I want to be in my day job." That may not be a lie in the sense that maybe you do have to find another company that will appreciate you for what you are worth. Maybe you do need to find a boss that is not going to put you down or belittle you because that crap is a ripoff! If you have a boss that is putting you down then, you need to get control of that now.
Find a different boss. Find a different company. That is ridiculous to put up with that. What would you tell your closest friend if they were in this spot? Better yet, what would you tell your kid if they came home and said, "My school teacher told me I wasn't good enough." What would you tell them? Are you doing that with yourself? The fact of the matter is, sometimes we just don't treat ourselves the way we should. If somebody is putting you down, you need to put yourself up....
I don't where you are but I have always felt like an entrepreneur at heart and my grandpa had a big part in encouraging me to chase it. One story I had starts where my grandpa would take me to CompUSA which was a store that sold parts to build computers.
I would always look through the Thrifty Nickel (a newspaper) and look at the ads and got this idea, "I want to build my own computers." So, I took the time to learn how to build computers and went and bought my own parts and built a computer that cost me $600 and told it in the Thrifty Nickel for $800. At the time, that was huge...I just made a $200 profit! It was this excitement of "Hey, you can be an entrepreneur, build your own business, and sell things!"
So, if you are out there and you're passionate about running your own side business or a full business, know that there is a world wide web of opportunity out there where you can make money doing things you enjoy to do. Don't be afraid to chase that dream you have and start your...
Why You're Still Waiting to Get Started on Your Dreams
Do you tell yourself that you’ll get started on your big plans at some future date? You can start a business after the kids graduate from college? Or, maybe you’ll just wait until the New Year to begin your exercise program. We’ve all done it. There always seems to be a good reason not to get started right here and now.
Are you sure you know the real reason you’re waiting? If you’re waiting to begin pursuing your dreams, you’re likely just procrastinating!
Consider these excuses. Is one of them yours?
1. You’re waiting for the perfect time. Are you waiting for your job to just slow down or for your kids to get a little older? You’ll be waiting for a long time. The time will never be perfect to get started on something significant, so just get started.
2. You’re waiting for something else to happen first. Maybe you’re waiting for for the mortgage to be paid off. Or...
I left a safe job to take the risk at being an International Business Analyst. I was told I would be traveling about a week on and week off. Little did I know, they'd want me on the road 21 days at a time. This wasn't going to work with my family. The flight home from London was one of the longest flights I have ever been on. I felt like I failed myself and my family and I should have just stayed in the safe little job I had.
It all turned out ok, but in the time, it felt like the end of the world. You have to risk it sometimes to see what's on the other side. Things are not as bad as we make it sometimes.
