A Passion For Success

Written by Uche Onyema

Dream ofrepparttar ideal job for a minute. You wake up inrepparttar 117186 morning about 8.30am or whatever time you choose and do a one-minute commute downrepparttar 117187 stairs to your cosy home office atrepparttar 117188 other end of your house. Still in your pyjamas, you beginrepparttar 117189 day’s work with a nice cup of coffee with your favourite CD playing inrepparttar 117190 background. After a couple of hours work you decide to take a break to watch your favourite program on TV, spend some time with your family and get something to eat.

After having a shower you go back to work for another couple of hours. Later on you look out throughrepparttar 117191 window and see a beautiful sunny day and before long your kids come calling to ask you to take them torepparttar 117192 beach. So you decide to stop work forrepparttar 117193 day, because you would rather be inrepparttar 117194 sun, and rush off to get your swim suit, towel etc, jump intorepparttar 117195 car along with your spouse and kids and head forrepparttar 117196 local beach. It is a weekday and most people are at work so you pickrepparttar 117197 best spot onrepparttar 117198 beach and enjoyrepparttar 117199 sights and sounds of nature, withoutrepparttar 117200 usual traffic of people walking around and all over you.

After a couple of hours and a nice tan you head back home. When you get to your PC you notice there is a new email message in your in box withrepparttar 117201 subject “Congratulations, You Have Just Earned a Commission”. That’s right, you were making money while Soaking inrepparttar 117202 sun onrepparttar 117203 beach because you automated your marketing tools.

OK. Time to wake up. This dream may seem unrealistic but there are many people inrepparttar 117204 Internet Marketing industry living such dream lives. That isrepparttar 117205 beauty of an internet based business. You can make money 24/7 even while you are asleep or on holiday, also because ofrepparttar 117206 global accessibility ofrepparttar 117207 internet you can work from anywhere you choose even on a cruise ship in repparttar 117208 Caribbean. However there are also many others who have failed to achieve this dream because they failed to turn their desires into burning passions that drive them to success.

Many of us need to be stimulated into action by something or an event in our lives. It may be we hate or lost our jobs or we feel unappreciated and poorly paid. In my case, afterrepparttar 117209 birth of my son I felt obligated to improve my life and become financially independent because I was spending more time with my colleagues than I did with my son, and byrepparttar 117210 time I got back home he was asleep. Most 9-5 workers spend about 10 hours a day travelling and working atrepparttar 117211 office and most will do so until they retire atrepparttar 117212 age of 65 with little to show for it. I dreaded this thought so much, it inspired me turn my desire for financial independence into a burning passion.

Find Time For Home Biz Success by Taming the Great Life Stealers

Written by Doug West

We often hear from ones who say that they just don't have enough time to devote to their home business. They work full time, raise kids, take care of aging parents, or for other reasons are just too busy to devote much time to a biz. Still, they would like a home business if they could only findrepparttar time. In this article we want to review some common areas where most folks tend to waste time, and how you can tame these life stealers.

# 1 TV Viewing

This ranks asrepparttar 117185 greatest time stealer of all! "Wait a minute" you might say, "don't tell me to give up my favorite TV programs!" No, we are not going to tell you to quit watching TV altogether. However, with just a little effort you can save TONS of time that could otherwise be spent on your home biz. Consider some ideas:

* Record Your Favorite Programs and Fast-Forward Through Commercials.

This could trim off a third or more ofrepparttar 117186 time it takes to watch them.

* Controlrepparttar 117187 TV - Don't let it Control You.

Instead of vegetating in front ofrepparttar 117188 TV for hours, watching everything that comes on, try picking onlyrepparttar 117189 programs you really want to see and settingrepparttar 117190 recorder. Sometimes it may be good to just chill out in your easy chair and turn onrepparttar 117191 tube, but once you get intorepparttar 117192 habit of recording shows, you may find more recordings to view than you have time for. The more productive time you spend on your home business will start to become a habit (so willrepparttar 117193 extra money that you earn from it!), you will spend less time withrepparttar 117194 TV naturally, and find that you have more energy too!

# 2 Recreation

Here is another big time stealer. Everyone needs some recreation, but most of us think we need more than we really do. Consider that most folks work all week just for a few moments of fun onrepparttar 117195 weekend. Back when I was working a J.O.B.repparttar 117196 factory was full of ones like this. They lived their lives for fun inrepparttar 117197 sun. Never planning for anything but more recreation. Whenrepparttar 117198 flag ship factory closed it's doors and laid most of us off, these same ones wanted to know how they would afford their boat payments, golf cart notes, vacation bills etc. Many had mortgaged themselves torepparttar 117199 hilt with recreation bills.

I was smiling because I knew we would get a nice severance package, and that I could now focus full time on my home biz that I always had worked onrepparttar 117200 side (I have toys too, and enjoy fun inrepparttar 117201 sun, but I pay cash for those things or I don't buy them - no credit for me on recreation - no sir!). I had turned down a few weekends of pleasure seeking overrepparttar 117202 years, but whenrepparttar 117203 whip came down, I'm sure glad I did! I work harder for myself than I ever did for someone else, but I control when I work, and how much I want to make. Since I love what I do, it really is not like work. I still limit myself on recreation, but when we do play, we really play well!
