"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." Mark Twain
Anyone learning to do business online (it is a constant learning curve), will, I hope, find something of benefit here. At my business site, www.tucats-design.com, you'll find all typical resources, but what of more important and fundamental "tools" you need to get this show on road?
Important, such as?
Oh, just little things like attitude, finding inspiration, nurturing your creativity, tenacity ... Simply, learning secrets to realising your dreams and achieving success you desire, without going completely nuts in process.
You do have to find inspiration, motivation and sheer discipline to work long hours, initially for very little return and without someone supervising you. But, if you can dream it (I am a real day-dreamer!), you CAN make it reality. I used to doubt that, but I have found it to be entirely true. I think you just have to want something enough then do something about it.
Wanting more is normal?
Why question mark? Doesn't everyone want something better? Can they all have it? If we all got more, who would be left with less? (Normal, I can tell you, is just a setting on a washing- machine!)
Are there people who are as happy as pigs in proverbial punching in at factory 5 days a week, watching football at weekends, going to bed at 11 p.m. and not wanting more than that? Personally, I think not. There may be some who have not realised yet what their "more" is and there are lots who are afraid to try anything new, but I think deep down, we all want something we don't have.
It isn't always material things, but whatever it is, it is what keeps us striving. And because everyone's "more" will be as unique as person themselves, then yes, I do believe that we can all have it: i.e. it is worth pursuing your ambitions, no matter how abnormal they may appear.
You'll face problems, overcoming them is key
Yeah, that was obvious, wasn't it? You don't need problems, you need solutions and what you may forget is that most of them you already have -- right there in your own mind and attitudes. No, I'm not saying you have an "attitude problem", although I'll admit I've been told I have, many times!
Among problems I have faced, and I imagine you have or will too, initially stem from needing to take what is virtually a "Leap of Faith" into unknown territory. I have done that to a foreign country and survived (not necessarily with my sanity intact, but alive enough to tell tale).
If you announce your intentions work for yourself, especially on net, I'll bet you last year's salary that someone in your immediate circle of family and friends will take a sharp intake of breath ... if they don't actually belly-laugh. Now if that isn't inspiration destroying, I don't know what is!
