There are a lot of benefits to living and working outside your daily environment. It is very difficult to increase your risk tolerance while you are “trapped” by your current lifestyle. Often businesspeople “find” themselves when they get laid off from their every day job. You may need to step outside your life to go the next level.
Most people can’t envision themselves stepping outside their lifestyles because we are so well conditioned to go to a job. Think about it, you are trained to get up and go “somewhere” on a schedule your entire life. In kindergarten, kids are conditioned to get up and live on a schedule from that point on.
True businesspeople don’t have a rigid schedule. They earn their way by balancing risk with reward, one of which is personal freedom. What is your freedom worth? Often times we ask what is it that the successful know that we don’t. The answer is nothing.
The difference between the businessman and normal person is that he will accept the risk or tough way to eek out a living and others will not. Implore you to summon your courage. Summon your courage and come on vacation with me for a second. Imagine!
You have decided to follow the desired of your heart. You have quit your job and gone home. You need a business you can run cheaply with little or no investment. On the 15-20th you have over $1100 in bill due. What will you do? You need an efficient vehicle to make money and you need to make money now! You have to step outside your life yet again.
What if you had a vehicle to make money and you gave it everything you had to get it going?
What if you handled it with the same professionalism you do your job. With the same preparation and concern?
What would that business be worth to you?
