You don’t need to a piece of paper to prove that you can do something! I don’t have anything against achieving or completing degrees or obtaining masters and all that – absolutely nothing. In fact, I am a law graduate myself and will strive to provide good educational background for my kids in future. But I am sick and tired of people complaining about how they wish they could do something and not being qualified to do it! I mean COME ON!! Get real……
I know I sound a little harsh but you wouldn’t want to know kind of trials and tribulations that I have been through and also kind of complaints that I have had to deal with in past. People hoping and wishing to make some money from home, wanting to be with their children, needing to be independent, desiring more freedom, etc. And yet, they sit on their laurels and continue wishing and complaining!
Anyone can do anything they want to – only condition is this: you want it BAD ENOUGH! You want to drive a Mercedes instead of your rundown ole pickup, go get it! If you want to live in a HUGE mansion with a swimming pool, go work for it! If you want to travel world with your family, go save up for it! And if you want to work from home and run a business of your own, for goodness’ sake, start doing something about it!
Let me give you a very simple illustration here, ok?
I am NOT a qualified graphic designer and neither have I ever taken writing lessons or search engine optimization classes or trainings or courses and whathaveyounots. None of them, whatsoever! Today, I earn a very comfortable living right from my bedroom as a graphic designer, writer, SEO copywriter and premium items designer. Assuming that it was all a fluke and that I am some sort of a special person with unique gifts. Let’s also assume that God really loves me and that He was unfair to rest people out there still sitting there wishing they could do something about their lives.
Then how come I spent so many months money-less? How come I cried myself to sleep every single night during first few months of being in business? How come I had to resort to begging and groveling (a little exaggeration there!) for work so that I can prove myself to rest of world? How come I had to fight with my family members in order to keep working from home? How come my children didn’t understand me when I said I had to work? How come people look at me funny when I say I work from home? How come I feel ashamed and sometimes inferior to those people who have titles like “Chief Operating Officer” or “Head of Financial Department” or “HR Manager”….etc?
