Dream of ideal job for a minute. You wake up in morning about 8.30am or whatever time you choose and do a one-minute commute down stairs to your cosy home office at other end of your house. Still in your pyjamas, you begin day’s work with a nice cup of coffee with your favourite CD playing in 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 through window and see a beautiful sunny day and before long your kids come calling to ask you to take them to beach. So you decide to stop work for day, because you would rather be in sun, and rush off to get your swim suit, towel etc, jump into car along with your spouse and kids and head for local beach. It is a weekday and most people are at work so you pick best spot on beach and enjoy sights and sounds of nature, without 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 with subject “Congratulations, You Have Just Earned a Commission”. That’s right, you were making money while Soaking in sun on beach because you automated your marketing tools.
OK. Time to wake up. This dream may seem unrealistic but there are many people in Internet Marketing industry living such dream lives. That is beauty of an internet based business. You can make money 24/7 even while you are asleep or on holiday, also because of global accessibility of internet you can work from anywhere you choose even on a cruise ship in 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, after 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 by time I got back home he was asleep. Most 9-5 workers spend about 10 hours a day travelling and working at office and most will do so until they retire at 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.
