Why Are You Doing This?

By Jeff Neil

Sometimes it amazes me how so much in everyday life relates to having a home based business. For instance,repparttar other night I went grocery shopping with my wife and five year old great niece.

Nothing special about it. Just your average fun filled, full of excitement, Thursday night onrepparttar 123983 town.

You know how five year olds are. Always wanting to help and taking pride in what they accomplish. Crystal is no exception, except she can barely reach overrepparttar 123984 cart.

But that doesn`t matter. She does her best at puttingrepparttar 123985 groceries inrepparttar 123986 cart and stacking them nice and neat. It does add fifteen minutes or so to this exciting event. But it`s time well invested.

So as we went through our routine she stacked some cans of (tuna?) and asked me if she was doing a good job.

"Yes" I said. "You`re doing a great job...you`re hired.". Crystal looked at me with a puzzled expression and asked "what`s that mean?".

Some people inrepparttar 123987 isle started laughing. "Don`t ask, you will find out soon enough." one guy said. While a woman there said to Crystal that she didn`t want to know about being hired.

I kind of chuckled myself. But not forrepparttar 123988 same reason. Now I wasn`t laughing at these people. They were just being friendly. But there is something they don`t know.

Crystal does not *have* to get a job. And neither do your kids. Crystal, along withrepparttar 123989 rest ofrepparttar 123990 crew that thinks I owe them something, is getting a chance you and I didn`t have.

She is being brought up to know that you don`t have to work hard all your life. That you can have your own successful business. You can accomplish and haverepparttar 123991 things you want in life.

Most of us weren`t really taught that. Even if we were told that.

Do you remember how it was when you were growing up? If your childhood was like mine, you were told to go to school and study. To get good grades. To go to college if we could afford to and to do all that so we could get a good job.

Failure Is Not Final

Written by Josh Hinds

Don't look at failure as final, it's simply a step inrepparttar process - Try to remind yourself that your failures are rarely final asrepparttar 123982 word failure implies. Rather they are lessons to gain insight into how to do things betterrepparttar 123983 next time around.

I would challenge you to find one occurrence in your own life where you have not actually gained something from a past mistake? It might take some heavy thought here, but as you ponderrepparttar 123984 situation I think you'll see what I mean. Even if it was as simple as learning what not to dorepparttar 123985 next time around, that's still valuable.
