From The Desk of Nikki Arnold:
If Columbus hadn’t envisioned a far-away world, he never would have set sail. Yes, there were rough seas at times. Lots of people thought he was taking a big risk. But he kept his mind on his goal and kept sailing. Columbus surprised himself. Instead of finding a shorter route to the spices of the far east, he discovered a land that was rich beyond anyone’s expectations – America!
I think everyone needs a vision about what they would like their life to look like. Do they want to continue the daily 9-5 grind in a job they don’t enjoy? Live in a tiny apartment or a home with a massive mortgage? Go on holidays locally because they can’t afford to travel overseas?
The Power of Vision:
As you think about beginning your own home business, the “vision thing” is important for you, too. What kind of life do YOU envision? If you’ve never dared to get out of your comfort zone, even in your thoughts, here are some very realistic “visions” of the kind of life a home-based business can bring you…
- Visualize being able to work flexible hours in the comfort and privacy of your own home, with no commute and no dress code.
- Think about not having to spend 40 or more hours a week in a job you’re not passionate about or in an environment that is toxic.
- Imagine not having to beg for time off work to do something so simple but so all-important as attending your son’s award assembly or your daughter’s school play.
- Imagine taking your family on trips to places you never dreamed you’d see. You won’t have to ask anyone for time off of course!
I urge you to think about how much better life could be for you and for your family. I also urge you to take advantage of this remarkable opportunity to become your own boss, a self-confident entrepreneur living up to your full potential.
